Making the Most of Your Senior Year in High School

Congradulations! You've gotten in a school (or two. Or three) and you're heading to college in the fall (or winter). You (and your family) are probably deciding what you need to bring, and how to prepare yourself for college. But hold on! You still got the rest of Senior Year left to enjoy. Here are 5 tips to make the most of it:

Go to Social Events

It's probably going to be the last time (save reunions and social media) that you're going to see your classmates. Go to social events, spend time with them, if you don't like to socialize or hate going to parties (like me), strike up a conversation.

Who knows the next time you're going to be back in town long enough to see the school play or the football game? Nows your chance. Go! Go now!

Prom!

Get all fancied up and go to prom and/or post-prom! You don't need a limo or a date (I didn't have either the first time I went, and only the limo the second time), and going with a group of friends is a lot less stressful.

Exchange contact info

Like I've said before, talk with classmates, share instas, snapchats, phone numbers, whatever. Find out if there's anyone going to your school or place of work.

Celebrate!

You just completed 13 years or more years of schooling! Time to kick back and relax until it's time for college/work force/basic.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
