This year is a stressful one. We are applying to colleges and scholarships, writing admissions essays, choosing what university we want to go to… and on top of all of this, we have the stress of keeping up with homework, quizzes, and tests. Even though it feels like there’s an overwhelming amount of work to be done, we need to remember to enjoy our last year at Mount. This year can be exciting. With the prospect of freedom just around the corner, we can be anxious for the year to end. While it might seem like this year couldn’t be passing by any slower, it’s important to remember that before we know it the year will be over and we will be at graduation receiving your diploma.
Make the most of your time, make a difference, and don’t sit back and let the year fly by. You don’t want to look back on your high school years and regret anything. Do your best this year in your classes. I know you might have been told that colleges don’t look at your senior grades, but scholarships can depend on them. Make sure to get your applications and essays for colleges done in time, but don’t stress out about them. Most colleges don’t expect your essays to be world changing, they just want to learn more about what makes you who you are. Enjoy your time with your family and friends because, unless you go to the same school, you won’t be seeing them everyday like you do now.
Seniors: this year will be over before you know it, so make the best of it!
