After today I will have three days left of high school. It is crazy to think that everything is about to come to and end, but theses past couple of weeks have slowed down a lot at school and have given me time to reflect. Recently, I have been putting blogging on the back burner to focus on enjoying the last weeks at high school with my friends. Don't get me wrong, I have missed having daily content up, but at the same time it has been liberating to just go with the flow. Once all of the graduation festivities wrap up and I get into a summer routine, there will be lots of new content.
Now that my senior year is practically over, I think the biggest piece of advice I could give to people entering senior year is to say yes more often. This year has hands down been my favorite year go high school and I attribute that to embracing free time and just going with the flow. My friends and I have been far more spontaneous this year and have made so many awesome memories. We went hiking, attended the Patriot's Super Bowl Parade, went skiing, skipped school to go to the beach, ran a half marathon, played senior assassin, and just made an effort to spend as much time together as possible. We are all going to be plane rides away from each other next year, so saying yes to as many things that pop up as possible is 100% worth it, even if you feel like your schedule is insanely busy.
For the first time in four years, grades no longer have the same significance. I am not saying to catch a severe case of senioritis and give up completely, but you know where you're going to college, so cut the studying time down and go out with your friends! You will remember going to get ice cream and having great conversations with your best friends more than staying in studying or catching up on your latest Netflix show of choice. Put your phones down, explore your city, go out to breakfast, and just say yes to making plans.
