everyone! Cole here. Now, here in the northern hemisphere,
it’s September… which means it’s that time of year again.
School is just about to start, and my long days of free time
are about to end… and I’m looking forward to it. In this
article, I’d like to describe my thoughts and feelings about
returning to academia, as well as what I expect to happen this
off, some notes about my school. I’m going into high school
this year, so I’m entering a new school – Deep Run. Mom says
that this school is exceptional in the country, but it just
seems like an ordinary school to me. The only major
“stand-out” feature about the school is the IT Specialty
Center, which I am entering to learn more about computers.
(Computers are the future. If anyone disagrees, please
remember where you are reading this. Smartphones also count as
advanced computers, since they’re part of the 4th Generation,
so…) That said, although it seems like a typical public
school, it seems to be a very clean, high-quality sort of
school, so I can probably expect a very good learning
have mixed feelings about returning to school. On one hand, I
am excited about my upcoming experience. I have been told that
high school, although functionally similar to middle school,
is far more interesting and better overall than the latter.
Additionally, I’m looking forward to getting the social life
that I’ve been dreaming about since I was a wee boy. That
said, the summer is more or less over, and for the first time
in my life, I’ve managed to get through it without finding
myself bored and listless (primarily because of my job as a
petsitter), so I’m a bit saddened by the idea of going back to
school. Also, I’m not looking forward to the first week of
school because the first week of school is always boring. I
don’t even get to learn
on the first week – it’s all about the syllabi and the
preparation is important, Cole.
know, Cole. It’s still boring, though.
do you know? Do you really
Because last I checked, you didn’t even prepare this article.
You just kind of wrote down the general structure of the

it isn’t. Also, this entire “conversation with myself” gimmick
is just pulled out of your first article. You can’t tell the
same joke again and again just to try to make your audience
I see your point. Should I just slap myself now and pretend
this never happened?
I don’t like syllabi and preparation, so… there’s that.
I’m looking forward to school, although I’m not comfortable
with the end of the summer. As of this time I haven’t actually
entered school yet, but it’s almost time. I hope to describe
the events of the school year as they happen, so stay tuned.
Anyway, it’s been fun. Insert witty closing sentence here.
the “witty closing sentence” was from your first article too –
Cole is 15 years old. Cole has Asperger’s and is this site’s first young adult monthly contributor. Cole will write about a variety of topics. He is a Freshman at an IT specialty center. He dearly loves pet sitting, and is a total pet whisperer!
