5 Pieces Of Advice For High School Seniors

Looking back on high school, it's easy to think of all things I wish I had done. Even if high school isn't exactly your cup of tea, there's no harm in attempting to make the best of it all. High school is full of memorable moments, from prom to homecoming football games. However, that being said, college is great. There is still plenty you will miss as you head off on your new adventure. As a high school senior, here are a few things you should remember:

1. Try your hardest!

Senior year is stressful, but with the being said, it's important to still try your hardest! Grades still matter. Don't give up now, you've tried hard enough to get where you are, as hard as it can be: stick it out another couple months.

2. Spend time with your friends and family.

Spend as much time as you can with friends and family. They will be the people you miss the most when you leave for college. Cherish all the moments you have with them, use your Sunday's for movies with the family, and make memories with your friends. Spend time with the people who you love the most, make time for them. You will regret it if you don't.

3. Attend everything.

Go to prom, go to the football games, go to graduation parties. Those are once in a lifetime opportunities to make memories. Be in the moment and enjoy it all while you can.

4. Take pictures.

Going along with #3, take lots of pictures! Pictures are a good way to record and save these memories. When you miss your friends, or your family, or are just having a picture, there's nothing like looking back on old pictures and reminiscing.

5. Have fun!

It is so easy to get overwhelmed with all the college applications and upcoming decisions, but don't forget to have fun! Everything will work out in the end, it is so important to remain in the moment. Make the best of everything, don't wish time away. It goes faster than you think!

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.
