I started ninth grade on Tuesday (August 16). I knew it would be harder than Middle School, but I wasn't expecting homework on the first day. And over the weekend. Also, I got lost thirteen times in four days.
So, any advice on surviving freshman year/ high school in general?

Endure it for a while and soon you'll get used to it. Getting into a new routine can be a nerve-wracking process, but once you get accustomed to the routine you'll be okay with it.
Here's another piece of advice: be diligent in not putting off homework. The more you delay these things, the more stress it'll cause you later. And in the meantime you won't be able to enjoy yourself fully because you know you'll have lots of work waiting for you later.

Bring a pencil, expect homework, and set things on fire. That's how I survived

Don't take everything too seriously. Just do the work and stay relaxed.

Don't act shy or timid. People pick up on that. Be outgoing and friendly and you can always count on people to help you out.

As for homework just do it. It grows on you

So, somehow, I'm already failing biology. Also, I had to turn in a half-finished essay in English.
On a more positive note, I know how to get everywhere without getting lost now.

The point is for you to find out. What fun would there be in just telling you? ;3

That's good

They don't offer AP classes to freshmen at my school, but I'm in all advanced classes.
I kinda try and maintain some pretty high standards.
I try to, too, and I consider myself a pretty good student, so I'm not exactly sure what's going on. I'm going to talk to my biology teacher tomorrow to see why I'm failing her class.
Good luck with high school, life, etc.

Work hard, focus on grades and extracurriculars, and don't give two d@mns about juvenile activities.
