Waking up with mixed emotions as today is the day I start my further education and as I enter the life of a sixth form student.
Several thoughts are crossing my mind as who knows what A Levels will entail as this is the start of essentially the rest of my life. The day is sunny with not a cloud in the sky, as I enter the assembly hall to take part in the ‘Welcome to sixth form parade’ where I see a mixture of old friends and new people who I have never met, all people who I will start my sixth form journey with. I was very nervous as I entered the hall however I had a sense of optimism as this is a new chapter in my life.
The day started off extremely well as I met loads of new people who shared the same ambitions and dreams as me which was exhilarating.
People say sixth form is a tough challenge and you have to be dedicated to work hard, personally A Levels is the stepping stone to the next chapter in my life however upon exiting the assembly hall I thought whether I was ready for the challenge, I came to the quick conclusion that if I tried my best and made myself proud that was enough for me.
I also thought of those deciding between going to sixth form and taking an apprenticeship, and whether I’d made the right choice. Everyone leads different pathways, and they all lead to bright futures. I decided sixth form was for me. Furthermore, as I sat down in my new form seeing all new faces, this is when the nerves began to build and the realisation of sixth form started. I was thrilled to begin with but anxious to what was next.
As I met my new form members each individual had a story to share and all of our paths have connected, here, at sixth form. My first day was a success as I had matured a lot from the person who woke up that morning as I started the new chapter in my life and this was my chance to work hard and show my dedication to my school work and to my new life.
