A Letter To High School Seniors In Their Last Few Months

Remember to make the most out of this time.

A Letter To High School Seniors In Their Last Few Months

You thought it would last forever, you thought you had all the time in the world to be a kid. You thought those four years would take forever to finish, but now that time will soon come to an abrupt ending.

The end of high school is some of the best months you'll have; Prom, graduation, senior week, all great things that ultimately hide the anxiety you feel as college is quickly approaching. No more parents making your lunch, no more homecoming dances, and no more knowing every person as you walk down the halls. Leaving the comfort and safety of the place you've grown to know and love can be very difficult, but that's part of growing up.

It's important to remember to make the most out of the rest of your time. Cliché, I know, but it's true. When you think back to high school you want to remember all of the good memories, not the bad. Make the good memories so good that they outweigh all of the bad ones. When you get to college all of your friends will be reminiscing of their friends and how they spent their four years, and trust me, you're going to want to join in on those conversations. I'll never stop loving talking to my college friends about my home friends, practically bragging about how awesome they are. Telling them about our weird night time drives while screaming the lyrics to The Spice Girls, or about sneaking out in the middle of the school day to go get Chick-Fil-A.

Take every opportunity given to you in these months; Grow closer to old friends or make new ones, you're going to want to keep in touch with these people. Go to every event possible, including prom even though you may think it's lame-it's really not.

It's okay to be sad leaving the comfort you've known, but the excitement waiting for you is going to be much better. Don't get scared at the initial moment of being away from home and away from everything you know because that feeling will go away so fast you'll feel silly for building up this anxiety over nothing. College truly is the best four years you'll have, even better than the much simpler high school years. The freedom you have is unlike anything you've experienced before, something that I promise you will love.

Make the most out of your high school years because they don't last forever. Don't be frightened at the unknown of what's coming, it will end up for the best. Although college is great, remember high school can be too. Do as much as you can in the last few months; That's something I'll never regret.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
