You made it!! Can you feel the nostalgia starting to set in?
Well, hold that thought, because the first semester of senior year is no cakewalk.
Remember how junior year was all about AP classes and SATs/ACTs and prepping for college? Yeah. So is first semester senior year. It’s time to make yourself a calendar of college application deadlines, SAT/ACT test dates (for retakes), AP exams, graduation gown orders, etc. There’s a reason we’ve all heard of senioritis. Don’t succumb! …
Because second semester senior year is amazing. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel. Believe it or not, after the stress of college applications, and waiting for acceptances, you actually get to pick a college. And go to that college. So, please, enjoy this time with your friends and take part in your school’s senior year rituals. A change is gonna come (Sam Cooke, anyone?) and it’s going to be amazing. 🙂
Here’s how to survive, and thrive, in the meantime:
