My Part Time Experience

Connor Ostadali

Greetings Bobcats! First of all, I want to welcome each and every one of you back to the new

school year! Seniors, enjoy your last year here, I’m sure you’ll make the best of it. Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen, keep holding on, the years will fly by fast and before you know it, you’ll be out of here and in college. This year, I’m taking part time attendance, and I would like to share my experience with you.


First off, it’s nice being able to leave school early, and go home to do whatever I need to take care of whether that be homework, or go to my college class. You can buy a lunch before you leave school, but I like to go home and make my own. That’s also nice since you don’t have to prepare lunch the night before school. Plus, if I’m really feeling fancy, I’ll go out to eat.


Next is homework. Personally, I don’t like to do homework right when I get back from school. I typically wait a couple of hours, and then do it. So, instead of getting back at 2 P.M. and waiting until 6 or 7 P.M. to do my work, I get back at 11 A.M. and start my work around 3 or 4 P.M. It’s much nicer getting the work done early, so I don’t go to bed still thinking about homework.


One of the things part time made me do was learn to drive. I got my permit in March of 2016, and I never really had a reason to drive, so I put off getting my license for the longest time. Since I need to drive to school every day, I had to get my license. It’s really nice being able to just go anywhere whenever you want, and not have to worry about someone picking you up or dropping you off.


My main man, Blake Lioi who is also a part time student, had this to say about his experience so far. “I get to go home early and go to bed like a boss. It’s nice that for 13 years of being in school full time, it’s nice to get out a little early, and get to experience real life.”


So Bobcats, if you chose to do half days your Senior year, I’m sure you’ll have a great time experiencing something new in your schooling life, until you get to college.
