Erin Upton, a junior at BHS, gave a glimpse into her high school life and goals for the future.

When asked about the extracurriculars she is a part of, she gave an inside look into each of them.

“I am currently in Bel Canto choir and I am a part of Interact here at school. I am a part of those because neither interfere with my job after school, and because they are genuinely amazing places to be with amazing people,” she said.

“Every other Monday morning, I have a choir sectional, which is where my entire section goes in and rehearses our part in the songs we are singing at the time, and then on Wednesday mornings, there are Interact club meetings. It gets a little hard sometimes when I need to make something up for school and need to come in early because I usually can’t stay late, but I try my best to schedule it, so I don’t end up missing either or not very much of each.”

Junior year can vary in opinion depending on the person–it can be dreadful for some but can be really good for others like Upton.

“Actually I really do like junior year, despite people telling me that it will crush my soul. For me the work load is fine, even though this is the first year without a study hall. My grades have never been better, and I have a lot less drama. I feel like it’s the year of opportunity. If I’m going to do something I am going to do it this year because next year is my last of everything,” she said.

Being a junior also comes with the thought of the following year being your last year at the high school, a time that is a little scary for Upton.

“Honestly, it’s a little frightening that I will be a senior next year. I know I won’t cry at graduation or anything, but it’s scary and sad to know that I won’t ever see some of these people again and that my school won’t be a mile away. I also haven’t decided on a college yet, and that’s crazy, and I just decided I no longer want to do what I have been planning on doing career wise.”
