The Pulse of the Ninth Grade

by Petie W.

I decided to get some quotes from some of the 9th’s graders “shooting stars”. The first one is the esteemed Jack S. Who gave me a couple vague and unclear yet philosophically sound and beautiful quotes.

How are you feeling in the fourth quarter of your freshman year?

Jack S. said, “You know, life catches up to all of us. When asked if he wanted to elaborate, Jack said, “No, I feel like that says enough.”

I also got quotes from Dig Writers Peter B. and Isabele R.

How are you feeling in the fourth quarter of your freshman year?

Peter B.: “I think its uh………I think that it’s uh gettin’ difficult….but I think I can pull through.”

Not sure what to think of this kind of hopeful and kind of discouraging quote.

Isabele R.: “Just pushin’ through, man.”

These court brief and hard to read responses might raise some implications about the state the 9th graders are in at this point in time. They seem to be working hard and doing what they have to do in order to finish Freshmen year strongly.
