The second semester has arrived and it took us all by surprise. After the first semester is over it’s all downhill from here, right? Wrong. That could not be farther from the truth. The second semester requires more responsibility and discipline than ever before. While managing schedules, it may be hard to remember that there is only so much room for all of the “necessary” activities during the final stretch of the year. Senior Tina Dang says, “I have a lot on my plate and it is hard to know what should come first once the second semester has started.” Learning how to prioritize according to specific needs is a major part in doing well during the last half of school. High school gives memories that will last a lifetime, but a stressful second semester will not be fun to remember. To survive, slow down and get a tight grasp of things. Come the second semester, much of Wade Hampton will begin to lack focus and lose all forms of motivation. The spring months bring a plethora of distractions, and school is about the last thing on everyone’s minds.

Spring break, prom, graduation are all quickly approaching so focusing on schoolwork must remain a priority. Though the first semester seemed more appealing, the second semester is full of fun events and hopefully easy exams, so work diligently and take school work seriously. Summer can be the extra push of motivation that it takes to get you through the second semester.
