Writing Prompt #2: How do you deal with meeting people who are different than you?
My WW Fenn Piece

Senior Year (Writing Like Herman Melville)



Having walked in the hall for the two-thousand three-hundred and fifty-fourth time it was like any other day to the average Fenn scholar, but to Luke, it was different. Today was Lukes first day as a senior, the grand halls of Fenn rang with the history of Luke’s time there. As Luke turned frighteningly fast to the right of the Boll Building math with hallway, he saw his friends for the first time since before the summer. Being a senior at Fenn means a few things, it means that you know the school inside and out, every hallway and every fastest route to any class. It also means, that everyone will be looking up to these seniors, as guides and examples for what to do throughout the year. Anyone who has went to Fenn since fourth grade understands the responsibilities of being a senior, every move a senior makes or doesn’t make reflect on the entire school. Luke, having known he would be looked up to, was planning on making the best example of himself, to better the Fenn Community. A path through a educational career at Fenn  is not a straight and simple one, it twists and turns and bends one to its breaking point. During the ninth grade, not only must one have to survive the academic challenges, but they also must be prepared to do the full application process while completing a high school course load. No, 9th grade is not a task for someone who wants to take a year to ride out and relax, its for the people who can double down and get their work done. Luke knew that every week would be a challenge and he would have to put in his full effort. Throughout this year, having known all of this, I think I have completed my 9th grade goals and more.
