Seniors, It's Our Last Month, Let's Make It Count

As a senior in high school, the last four years have been brutal, I have been waiting to graduate and move on to bigger and better things, but now that the moment is here, lets recap and make this last month our best.

Seniors, It's Our Last Month, Let's Make It Count

Senior year has always been a roller coaster of emotions for every 18-year old. Sure, it may be a different experience for everyone, but there is one thing we all know, which is that we are all ready to graduate and move on with our lives. There have been so many memories made over the last four years, let's make these last ones our best ones.

Think about all of the amazing memories we are about to make, from prom to graduation, there are so many things to look forward to for the rest of our high school careers, we don't want it to go by fast. I know we all want to go on Senior week but let's take everything one step at a time, starting with enjoying our prom. Next, focus on graduation, senior week and then finally, our favorite part: college!

Many of us lack motivation for the end of the year. It is a lot to process and we all are just wanting to get out of the cement building we spend 7 hours in 5 days a week. Memories we have made in these buildings are important though, they have shaped us to be who we are today, we were in high school during the most important time of our lives, it shaped us to be who we are today, the people we have met, the teachers we had, all of these factors have made us and shaped us into who we will be in college and the people we may attract. None of us want high school to follow us, we want to start anew and make new friends, but remember that the people who shaped you in high school will show you the type of people you may be friends with in college.

Overall, never forget all the memories we have made in high school, whether they are good or bad, they have taught us valuable lessons and will allow us to prosper and learn from our mistakes. Now, let's make this last month our best month! We are in the homestretch of one of the most important years of our lives!

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.

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.

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.
