A Day in the Life of a Mercy Girl
Hey everyone, to better understand my day, I figured you needed to know a little bit more about me. My name is Jenna Ebel and I am a junior at Mercy who is very involved and very busy. At Mercy, we have A days and B days, so my schedule changes day-to-day. On A days, I get up around 5:30 in order to catch the bus by 6:30. The availability of the bus route was the deciding factor in my choice to go to Mercy. I get to school around 7:30 from the bus with plenty of time to hang out with my friends and talk to my teachers if necessary. I head to class at 7:55 to be ready for prayer and pledge.
On A days, I start with my Biomedical Science class which is one of my favorite classes. We just finished up fixing our fake bone breaks which gave us a look of orthopedic surgery. After Biomed, I go down to my Religion class which is an awesome environment where I learn a lot about myself along with the curriculum. After Religion, I head back upstairs for AP United States History.
It is one of my favorite classes of the day for two reasons: first, because I love history, and secondly, because I get to go to lunch that block.
I bring my lunch almost everyday, unless there is Chick-fil-A, and I have a nice time relaxing with my friends. After AP US History, I head back downstairs for my last class of the day, AP Spanish Literature which is our fifth year Spanish class. Spanish is always fun because there are only six girls in the class, so we are a very tight knit group. After Spanish, we get to go home where I do homework and get ready for the next day.
So, those are my A days, let's look at B days.
On B days, I get up and head to Mock Trial practice before school. I also have various meetings before and after school that I must attend for the many of our national honor societies.
I then start in English class, which is always really fun and different every day. After that, I go to Business Law which is another one of my favorite classes since it is unique and prepares me for real life. Business Law is also the class that got me involved in the Mock Trial team. After Law, I go to Pre-Calculus which is a difficult class, but I am able to succeed with the support of my teacher.
This is one of my favorites parts of Mercy: the willingness of our teachers to help us students in any way that we need.
I have lunch during my Pre-Cal block and then I'm off to my last class. I have Study for my last class on B days which is awesome since it gives me the chance to do homework, talk to teachers, and make up any work. And just like that, I have been through one cycle of an A and a B day, a cycle that starts over until the end of the year.
So, that is a day, or well technically two days, in the life of a Mercy girl. I can't imagine spending my days anywhere other than at Mercy.
