Tips for a Great Senior Year
Many of you are juniors or seniors, and I thought it would be appropriate to give you some senior year tips to make the most out of your last year of high school! I just graduated in May, so I have some experience with the senior year craziness. Here’s three tips to get you through!
Enjoy every moment!
I know people have told you this before, but believe me when I say that senior year goes by fast! So enjoy every moment! It’s easy to get caught up in homework and studying. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a time and place for that. It’s important to be on top of things and focus on school. However, you deserve to have some fun with friends. Go get lunch! Have movie nights and pool parties! Go to football games or choir concerts! These are the memories that will last forever. These are the memories that you will tell your future kids about. There’s no need to participate in stupid drama that takes up your time and emotions. Find your real friends and stick with them.
Like I previously mentioned, it’s easy to get caught up in school work and be stressed. It makes sense- there’s the ACT, SAT, and finals to worry about. You deserve to relax and take a break. Whether this means going out to ice cream with some friends, or taking a night drive with the windows down and music blasting, let loose! Take three deep breaths, focusing on the exhale. Exercise! Get those endorphins flowing. You’ll have better success if you take breaks from homework every once in awhile and take some time for YOU. Also, side note: if and when problems arise this year, try to not take it too seriously. Learn from it, but don’t dwell on it too long, because pretty soon it won’t matter anymore!
Something you (or your parents) are probably thinking about is senior pics! This is such a fun experience. These pictures will last you your whole life, and you deserve fantastic quality and service. Guys, I’m not kidding, Michelle is a miracle worker! Shooting with her is so fun and you won’t want your session to end. You get to truly be yourself and have fun while someone takes amazing pictures of you. Check out Mercy’s last post for some awesome tips for your session! I promise you’ll have fun! Check out my senior pictures for ideas too!
My best wishes are with you and that you have the best senior year ever!
