How to Survive High School Day Five: Don’t choose your activities only based on your friends


Arianna Bayangos, Scot Scoop News Editor

At Carlmont, there are many options for extracurricular activities such as clubs centering around a particular interest and different sports. As you choose your activities to join during your time at Carlmont, don’t base your choices only off of your friends.

As freshmen, many people tend to choose activities that their friends participate in so that they see a familiar face.

This isn’t a bad thing, but before choosing clubs and sports, you should ask yourself whether or not it is something that you are truly interested in pursuing for the next four years in high school.

Extracurricular activities are also a great way to meet people that share the same interests. Through joining clubs, I grew closer to people I already knew and met new friends from different grades.

My advice for all the freshmen is to take advantage of all the activities that Carlmont has to offer. You may uncover a new found passion and make friends in the process.
