I don’t know about you, but my freshman year, I was so excited to finally be in high school. Junior high days were over, and everyone had a new perspective of maturity … well, almost everyone. Sophomore year, I was one step up on the food chain – no longer a “frosh” or “fresh meat.” Junior year, I became an upper classman. I was excited to start thinking about my future and all the adventures that lay ahead of me after high school. Senior year, I started applying to colleges and scholarships early and got a head start on my future. I was ready to start the next chapter of my life.
My point is that each year of high school has something amazing and exciting to offer. If I had the choice to redo high school all over again, I wouldn’t take it. I loved high school. I never got bullied. I always had great grades and amazing friends. I wouldn’t say high school was an amazing experience, but it was definitely a good one.
Of course, there are a few things I wish I had known going into high school. As you go through high school, keep these in mind. These seven ideas will truly help you in the future. I know they would have helped me.
So as you start this new school year, begin it with confidence. Believe in yourself, make the most out of every situation, and do everything to the best of your ability.
