Oh my gosh… I’m finally a SEN19R!!! I’ve been at school for 3 days and somehow it already feels like weeks. I’m so excited though because so far my classes are great and I don’t know if this was already mentioned but I’m a senior (that’s kinda a big deal). With all seriousness I’m finally starting to realize some things that I did freshman year that made my life so much harder than it had to be. So to all the fish out their I’m dedicating this blog post to you! Here are just a few tips and tricks for Freshman Year.
Don’t date the seniors
Guys, gals, I don’t think I can stress this enough. DON’T. DATE. THE. SENIORS. As freshman you look up to the seniors and think they are amazing, kind, smart people who can do no wrong. We do wrong… we do very very wrong. Seniors are here with you for ONE year, they’re going to grow up and graduate and sadly probably breakup with you. Just think for a second, college, college parties, college friends verse highschool girlfriend of boyfriend… pick your poison freshman.
Try in school
My freshman year I completely took advantage of the fact that it was pretty easy. I got average grades and now that everything is harder my GPA is lower because I didn’t use freshman year to get ahead. Don’t take this as a, “don’t have a social life, just study,” thing because it’s for sure not. All that I’m saying is that high school gets harder, crazy I know, and to make up for all of those classes you aren’t going to do well in put in just a little more effort now.
If this means you join clubs, athletics or simply go cheer on your school at events, get involved. I would not have known half the people I’m friends with now if I never joined band or DECA. Building relationships in high school are the best way to go! Plus guys pro tip, colleges really like to see students that are involved in activities outside of just school work.
When a senior looks into the hallway we can spot the freshman, look for the one that’s wearing the most dressed up outfit. I’m not telling you what not to wear, just dress comfortably. Remember, high school is still school, not a fashion show.
