You’ve done it. You’ve survived the last 13 years of education being forced on you. Well, almost. You have two weeks left to graduate. You have few to no exams, classes are doing nothing but watching movies, and the urge to skip class everyday gets stronger and stronger everyday. So how do high school seniors survive the final two weeks every year/first few weeks of summer without dying of boredom? They listen to me- haha jk.
1. Spend the Final Moments with Your Friends Before You Stop Seeing Them Everyday
I love my friends. I will see them over the summer. I will text and Skype them. But it’s not the same. Same goes for this fall. You may see them often, but not every day like you’ve been used to for the past forever. Skip class together (just not too often:)), go out to lunch, plan a prank, anything. As long as ya’ll are spending priceless time together.
2. Thank Your Teachers
And not just your teachers. That favorite secretary who lets you skip class, the nurse who’s always had your back when you were too “sick” to go to English class, or that fabulous guidance counselor who sent out 80 bajillion transcripts for you. Thank them too. In fact, thank everyone who made your high school career what it is. And it doesn’t take much, a thank you note, a straight up face to face thank you, and if you are close enough, a hug
3. Do Everything You’ve Always Wanted to Do
Ever wanted to just tell that annoying girl shut up? Now’s the time. Ever wanted to get up enough courage to ask that guy that you have computer class with out? Do it! Honestly, who cares. You won’t have to put up with them for much longer. Just don’t do anything that would possibly ruin your chances of graduating.
4. Wear Your College Gear
Go ahead, show off that university you’re so proud you got into. Even if it wasn’t your number one choice, now is the time to get yourself some new school spirit. Plus, wearing a college t-shirt is a guaranteed way to get people to ask you your college plans. And who doesn’t love talking about themselves?
5. Get to Know Other People Going to Your College
Even if they weren’t your best friends before, now’s the time to make connections! They don’t have to be your roommate or your best friend at college, but they can be helpful. Often, colleges aren’t the best at explaining things, or sometimes you just have questions that can’t be answered by the college. That’s when your friends come in handy! And if you don’t have anyone that you know going to the same college, Facebook! There is always some Facebook page dedicated to your college’s freshmen class. Find some people out of there that you can click with and help them as much as they help you.
