Plans after High School

Graduating. People always ask seniors what they have planned after they graduate. Personally, I really have no idea. Actually, I take that back I have ideas. I just have so many of them that I cannot seem to make up my mind. I know that I love babies and small children, and would love to have a career where I get to be around them everyday. But, I also want to have a family so I do not want a job that has very demanding or crazy hours.

Another big question is what school do I want to go to. I am still not sure if I want to go to a local college, or a college far far away. I also debated for a long time whether or not I wanted to dance in college. Which I have pretty much crossed that off my list now, I have come to the realization that my heart is not really in it anymore. I love the idea of going to a big college far away from home. But, honestly I think I would not like it very much at all. I probably need to get the ball rolling on at least something, because as I sit here at the end of Christmas break I realize that I haven’t applied to ANY colleges. lol whoops

For a while there I felt like I was under a lot of pressure. My mom kept asking me about my future, and then would get frustrated when I said I had no idea what I wanted. It also did not help that I completely did not try at all the first half of my semester at the beginning of my senior year. Which if any of you are in high school please take it seriously, or at least seriously enough to where you make the grades you want. At some point in my junior year I kind of stopped caring what grades I got. I knew that I would pretty much graduate no matter what, so I did not feel the need to put in extra effort. But, that is completely wrong. You need to put in effort because there is this thing called gpa which affects your class ranking, AND it is what colleges look at on applications. So it is kind of a big deal, they also look at ACT and SAT scores so try your best to do good on those as well. But, do not worry if you don’t do very good on them. Everything will work out how it is supposed to. 🙂

High school is a confusing time, but try to make the best of whatever situation you are in. I wish you all good luck whether you are in high school, college, or just going throughout your daily life. Life is rough, but it is also amazing.

Love,

Kate
