A pro to high school: its where you finally learn something useful. Sometimes you learn something useful in middle school, but here is where it really picks up. The con: they still teach you allot of useless bull crap. I don't need half the classes I take, although they prove themselves useful, but only because they're there. I'm saying I can go without them. I never really need them.
Another pro: it's the next step to adulthood. In high school you finally learn to drive, and maybe get a job. Awesome, right? Now you have freedom, and cash. But here's the con: you're one step closer to adulthood! Soon your gonna have to move out, get a real job, and live in your own house. Sounds fun, but then once you get the house, if you don't have a good job, you realize you can't get that brand new X-Box that all your friends that still live with their moms have. I bet something like that's going to happen to me.
Pro: a new building, new friends, and new teachers. So basically a fresh start in a new school, sounds good. Con: a new everything. When you go to a new school, you're gonna lose some friends. On top of that, you have to get used to a new school, with a new schedule, and new teachers. New can be good or bad. For me it's just plain frustrating.
Pro/Con: Dances, dating, and sports. Dances, they are fun, but only if you have a date! It can be very stressful. Dating; OK, so its not too high school related, but romance, at this point in time, is a very big part of your life. So dating is a big part of high school. Sports for most are the biggest part of high school. But you gotta keep your grades up.
The last con: increased risk of substance abuse; drugs and alcohol. According to most PSAs about drugs, this is something even 5 year-olds deal with. But in high school you got peer pressure, and the wanting to be cool. I've never actually seen drugs. Sex is a bit more of a problem in my school, but i digress. The pro to this: there is none. It could kill you, when you lose your buzz, you feel like like crap. But again, i digress.
High school sounds fun, huh?
