It’s the start of a new year and a new decade (possibly – there’s debate about that). However, there’s no denying that January 1, 2020 is the start of a year full of big changes ahead – graduation, college, new people and places. Start the New Year off right with a few resolutions:
- Keep your grades up. With only one more semester left in high school, you may be tempted to coast in to graduation. Don’t let “senioritis” get the best of you. Colleges will look at your final grades and can take back your admission offer if your grades are not up to snuff!
- Don’t procrastinate! Another symptom of senioritis is procrastination. Develop a system to stay on track of your assignments and deadlines. Creating good habits now will make your freshman year of college will be a piece of cake.
- Use social media responsibly. Does it pass the “parent” test? If it isn’t something you would want your parent to see- don’t post it.
- Pick up a book! Make an effort to read a novel each month, or at minimum try reading one long-form journalism piece each week. Reading will improve your vocabulary and make you a better writer.
- Make someone smile. Find ways to bring happiness into someone’s life each day.
Happy New Year from the GuidedPath team.
