Starting Senior Year Strong: Words of Advice

Senior year — it’s the ever-looming conclusion that everybody in high school has been waiting for. Even now, as I prepare to start my senior year, it seems so foreign, far away and very overwhelming.

I was always excited to finally become a senior, even in middle school. It was the time where we would become independent. The point where we go from children to adults.

As we begin our senior year, I would like to offer some advice to my peers, and of course, remind myself of the important things I need to do as well.

  • Give advice. As seniors, underclassmen will look up to us, seek us out for advice, and put their trust in us. It is a privilege and a rite of passage—don’t treat it as an annoyance, but instead, lend them a hand.
  • Manage your time well. It is essential to allocate time for different activities, including sports, clubs, schoolwork and, most importantly, sleep. Especially at MHS, we can feel like we’re bombarded with work. Time management may not solve every problem, but it will surely save you a whole lot of worrying. There have been plenty of times where I didn’t plan well and had to be in two different places at the same time. In every instance, someone has gotten mad, so don’t be me in those situations.
  • Remember to use technology. There’s a reason the school provides us with laptops and tablets to carry around. Use websites and apps to jot down notes, list events, and manage your time. Your phone isn’t only for games or social media. Use it to make your life easier—there’s no shame in doing so!
  • Get to know the administrators and adults on campus. They will be a great help if you need it once you graduate. Many teachers on campus have interesting backgrounds and talents that might interest you, so build a network of people you can rely on and trust. Adults on campus can provide you with assistance for almost anything.

It’s astonishing that in one year the Class of 2019 will have our own graduation. It may seem long, but in reality, one year feels like a breeze. There’s only one Class of 2019 at MHS. Stay strong and let’s finish this last memorable year!
