Is senioritis hitting you hard? Here are some tips:
- Get plenty of sleep: It may seem simple, but keeping your body well rested during these stressful months can mean the difference between having fun and being a walking zombie at school every day. We are all guilty of staying up too late to catch up on homework or watch a favorite show, but try to treat yourself to a full night’s sleep as often as possible so you can be your absolute best.
- Be sure to stay on top of all important deadlines from both the high school and your college. Balancing both can be challenging, but methodically working through tasks like signing up for AP tests, sending your final transcript to schools, and even picking your roommate are important to complete, because failing to do so will cause you headache in just a few short months.
- Don’t allow yourself to fall behind on grades despite being accepted into a college. Top universities ask for a final transcript for a reason: to ensure that you kept working hard all the way until the day you are handed your diploma.
- Begin acquiring everything you’ll need for college, both physical items and mental preparedness. Ensure that you start out right by having everything needed to function at your new home away from home. Use your final weeks of high school as practice for how you’ll function in college without your parents around to help guide you through the motions of life.
- After all of these boring steps, you must remember to enjoy yourself! You’re ⅞ done with school and are ready to go into the world. Celebrate your final days of school by going to prom, attending other functions, and participating in the senior field trip. Your last weeks are only as good as you make them, so get out there and make the absolute best of them so they are remembered for years to come!
