7 Tips To Help End Your Year

As the 2016-2017 school year comes to an end, here are some tips to help you close this chapter of your life the right way.

1. Stay organized while you pack/unpack.

No matter how hard you try, something gets lost every time you move. Being organized in your moving plans can help you keep up with as much as possible. Don't be surprised when something doesn't make it from point A to point B though. (I'm convinced my first dorm room ate my Scentsy).

2. Make a list of high and low points from the semester.

This is something that I just recently tried and it really helped put things in perspective. Future you will love reading this in five or ten years.

3. Write a letter to your future self.

Write one at the beginning of the year to be opened at the end of the year, write one at the end of the year to be opened at the end of summer. Write one to yourself to be opened on the day your graduate too.

4. Plan summer trips with your friends.

While you're all still together, plan some fun summer road trips or trips to each other's home towns for the summer!

5. Tell your friends how much they mean to you.

It's going to be so strange not being around the same people every day all day like you have been for almost an entire year. You're going to miss them a lot so tell them how much they mean to you while you're all still together!

6. Take some down time.

After finals of course! Take some time to rest and recuperate from a long year of hard work. Don't stop all together but take some time to rest at the beginning of summer before starting your summer adventures.

7. Savor every moment.

I'm sure you're thinking "wow the year is already over? Where did time go?" This is going to be your thought at the end of every school year and before you know it it'll time to graduate and say goodbye to your school career forever. Savor every little bit while it lasts.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.
