This year I became a Freshman at Milton High School and so far it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life so far. On my first day of High School, I was so ready to start school and see my friends again after summer. All of my classes so far have been great and I have made so many new friends. By halfway through the first week of school, I had already filled up my after school schedule with different clubs and other extracurricular activities. I joined the Milton Latin Club, ran for office, and got elected class officer to represent my class in Officer Meetings. I signed up for Milton Model UN and got into my first conference of the year at Georgia Tech that I will be attending next month as the delegation of Spain. I have also expressed interest in joining the Milton Swim and Dive team to get back into competitive swimming. I still need to get back into the water and get acquainted with the strokes again before the season starts in about a month. I’m really excited to be joining the Milton Swim and Dive team and I can’t wait to be back in the water again. But, overall school has been going pretty great so far.
So far I have attended two football games and they were some of the highlights of my first month at Milton. Although we lost the first game and the one after that and the one after THAT, it was still a lot of fun to goto the game and various tailgates beforehand. During the first game of the year, Latin Club has their annual Toga Tailgate where all the Latin Club members can come play cornhole, eat food, and listen to music. I had a lot of fun wearing togas and hanging out with friends. And, I got to hang out with my squad of friends at the game afterwards. The second game that I went to, which was last Friday, was just as if not more fun. A couple hours after I got home, I walked back to school with some friends and went to the big tailgate that is open for everyone. They had a few dozen hot dogs and a huge shrimp cocktail. (Awesome, right?) After hanging out at the tailgate for awhile, my friends and I decided to wander around until the game started. We went to watch the Marching Band perform a mini show in front of the school and they sounded amazing. I know I’m a little biased, but the Milton Marching Band is probably one of the best marching bands in the state. Then, we hurried back to the field because in honor of September 11th, two skydivers parachuted down onto the field sporting an American flag and the football that would start the game.
I have had so much fun at the football games and Milton High School as a whole. And, I can’t wait until I start swimming and am able to represent Milton in a way more than just academics.
