It’s just the beginning.

Is this a right decision for my future?

No one can predict one’s future but could improve them by one’s wise decisions and effort. I am currently at a point where I need to make this wise decision as it will make a pretty big difference in my future. As being a freshmen in Korea International School, there are many hardships but still lots of fun. I have heard lots of comparisons of this school and the schools in the states.

Last year, I have applied to the Chadwick School and got acceptance. I had prepared well enough to be ready to head abroad, but several problems did not let me go. The problem was mainly due to the house that was in procrastination and my father’s work, but there were still some problems that I personally had in mind. My parents were worried that I was too young to be independent. They constantly told me that there will be numerous hardships that I would not had even imagined during the process of adapting to the new school. I was also in anxiety due to this problem at first, thinking whether I would be able to adapt easily to a place that involves students from a variety of cultural backgrounds. However, I made a conclusion that this really depended on myself. If I made the right choices for the things to do and not to do and be a friendly, I will eventually be able to enjoy my high school life in the states. I also heard other various worries, but I think of them as stereotypes that people have without even having any experience. Even though there could be some struggles to get use to the new condition, I long to meet new people and get a sense of how hard it is to get things right independently. With some of the problems eased up, including our house in the states, my father’s work, and some of the internal problems, I would really like to challenge myself in Chadwick School as I had plenty of time to have a readiness of mind and to believe in myself.

This year, I saw a lot of people getting acceptances to schools in the states and getting excited to head abroad. This makes me remember the time when I when I got the acceptance letter from Chadwick School that I longed to go to. I do enjoy my high school life in Korea International School and have great expectations. However, I really want to have diverse experiences with more opportunities led in front of me. I know that I do not have much time to reconsider about my choice of my high school. Likewise, I think it is better to make a decision now to take a chance with faith in myself and have my high school life in Chadwick School.



Hi! This is Michelle. I will start my first blog with a short introduction about myself. This is my first time blogging and my main purpose is for a homework assignment from my English class. I did not have any particular emotion about starting a blog; I neither sighed nor jumped up and down full of joy. That is, how I began my blog.

After reading this first paragraph, you would wonder how dull and uninteresting my blogs will be because it’s just a normal high school girl’s English assignment.

However, the story changes. It changed when I started looking at other people’s blogs and knew what the purpose of blogging was. I realized that I had a misunderstanding of bloggers. As I read through several blogs, I found myself greatly impressed by some touching stories. I was frequently amazed by how creative and moving a blog of short writing can be. Now, blogging actually exhilarates me as I think about how I could share some stories of me being an ordinary KIS high school girl and the fact that it is always shared in public.

Through this blog, I want to share my memorable high school life. Blogging about my high school life would really help me ease up some of my unbearable pressures that I get as an ordinary teenager and will be able to diffuse my mounting tensions that I get as I age every year. I am currently a freshman full of miscellaneous thoughts and feelings. In these miscellaneous thoughts and feelings there are some excitement and expectations for the achievements I will make in the future. On the other hand, I also find myself panicking of anxiety when thinking about how my junior year will turn out to be when freshmen year is already this intense. I often imagine myself collapsing on the floor or pulling my hair out when I bump into a burden of tasks to accomplish.

I know that high school is a very important period of time in my life. I know that this implies to not only me, but almost every student. The purpose of high schools are mostly for college preparation. That will explain why one’s high school life is considered very significant. Nowadays, people often cry out the word, college, college, and college. It’s especially seen in Korea, a nation where education are certainly harsh and serious.

To add a little more fun, you will find hot topics on K-pop in my blog. I am a huge fan in some idol groups and you’ll get to find out more about it as you get to read my blogs! Other than my blogs, also check out some photos that I will upload which will give you some clues about my high school life. I hope my blogs will make disparate people feel empathy for my austere stories that I will begin writing.
