Human traffic jams in hallways are huge headache

That’s what I think when I enter the hallways of ROJH. It is like a human traffic jam, except without the cars and more slow people.

Most of the time, students get so worked up with socializing that they are late for class. Trust me, you don’t want to ruin your perfect attendance streak if you have one. I, on the other hand, am always early. Haven’t you ever heard the saying, “It is better to be early than late”? That is a saying I go by.

Some classmates ask me, “Why do you walk so fast, you have five minutes?” I reply with the same saying and keep on walking.

I feel students should focus more on school, getting their education and being on time. These are the things that will help them in their adult life and make a difference soon, especially when we enter high school.

We only have five minutes to get to class and some students get so distracted with things that are not important or relevant, which leads them to being late. I am one of those students who cares about anything that will benefit them now and in the future.

I believe a good solution to this problem is that  everyone  should stay on their side of the hallway and people should also start paying attention to where they are going. This is mainly for safety reasons because you don’t want to be the main cause of a human traffic jam that leads to others getting hurt. So be cautious and GET TO CLASS!
