A Letter To The Seniors In High School

Cherish the moments you have left

A Letter To The Seniors In High School
Charlotte Russell

Dear seniors in high school,

Wow, you made it. Senior year of high school. Doesn't feel like just yesterday you were a freshman? And now you only have a certain number of days until you are out of high school. Time flies by fast and you might be sitting there thinking about how bad you want to be summer and how bad you want the school year to be over and how bad you just want to move on with your life. I was once in your spot. All I wanted was for the school year to be over. I wanted to be out of that dumb high school so that I can move on with my life.

Little did I know, I was wishing away some of the best days of my life. While I was hoping for the school year to go by faster, I was missing out on the amazing memories that were passing by me. I wish someone would have told me to slow down and enjoy the moment.

To be honest, someone probably did and I probably didn't listen. So high school seniors, this is my advice to you. Enjoy the last few moments of your high school experience. Do not waste your time hoping for the future when you have an Amazing present in front of you.

While you were looking forward to the future, you're missing out on making some of the best memories of your life. While you may think that you will not miss high school, I guarantee there will be things that you will miss once it is gone. A lot of times we do not realize things we have until they are no longer in our presence. So I encourage you to do these things. Get to know someone in your class that you don't know very well. I don't care if there's only a month left of school, your best friend could be sitting in your class and you don't even know it. Just because there isn't a lot of time left in the school year doesn't mean you can't make friends.

Take the time to thank your teachers. Whether you like school or not, I guarantee that there have been at least one teacher has had an impact on you either academically or emotionally. Let them know because teachers are already underappreciated as it is. They deserve to know that they have made a change in someone's life.

My last advice to you high school seniors is to take a look around and soak it in. Well, you may not miss your school now, when you first go off to college you might miss it more than you can ever imagine and you'll regret taking those last days of your high school career as a grain of salt.

High school seniors, you may be reading this and you may be thinking that this is all cliché. You may be thinking that what I am saying is dumb. You may be right. All I know is that I regret the days that I wish the way in high school and I wish I could go back and tell myself to live in the moment between joy what I had in those moments that I didn't realize at the time period is never too late to enjoy your high school experience. Take the time to enjoy the last few months of high school.

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.

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.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
