    Overall Experience: My last few years spent at Huffman High has been really interesting and a learning experience. I've got to admit, I did learn to make the best of these few years. There were some ups and downs, but what motivated me the most was wanting to graduate. I had some fun and I've learned a lot being in high school. It'll be days where you may slack, and days where you realize your friends aren't you friends anymore. Do not get caught up in mess, or boyfriend drama. If I could have given advice to myself or someone entering high school it would be to stay focus and don't be afraid to be smart. Be you, be unique, be OUTSTANDING! My last advice I would give to someone would be to make the best of your high school years, because just think about it those years really only happen once.
