Thoughts on Thursday : Advice for A High School Grad

Tomorrow the last of four girls graduates high school. This is honestly a big deal. When you go through events over three times in your life you start to miss them when they are gone. Events such as elementary school fall festivals, Middle school sports, and just the reminder that 6 years ago I was in the same situation. I would rather forget about it but tomorrow I will experience a high school graduation for the last time when it comes to my sisters. We are all finally adults. I keep repeating it through my head because that is how I think. 

I really don't understand my obsession with this but all in all that is life. So without further adoo.... I give my advice to my soon to be graduate baby sister. 

1. Keep Dreaming
2. Don't do it for the Money
3. Continue Educating yourself
4. Try new things
5. Let your heart and your head guide you
6. Take deep breathes 
7. Positive thoughts
8. Sit in the front
9. Talk to your Neighbor
10. Meet a non-traditional student
11. Attend a meeting
12. Join Something
13. Don't be afraid to be Late
14. Don't be afraid to ask questions
15. Be You
16. Make decisions and goals
17. Take a fun class
18. Take a fitness class
19. Take a art class
20. Take a finance class
21. Get a cool back pack

23. Make a friend
24. Take Naps
25. Find computer labs

Hopefully this will come in handy for some one else!

    1. I hate when I say I miss school but in all honesty I do! However if I went back I would probably want to just go home!
