More End Of Year Advice: A Top Ten

Whether you're graduating from high school or college, or have just completed another step on your way to a degree, the end of the school year is fast approaching. You've probably heard words of advice here are 10 more:
  • 10. Realize that your advisor is really proud of your progress.

  • 9. What were you doing in 2012? Annnnnd boom, four years went by.  If you think another 3 years of high school, or 4 years of college, or even 2 or 1, is an impossibly long time, just remember how fast this year has gone by, and the past four years.

  • 8. When a class, or a teacher, is tough, realize that you can get through it and learn anyway.

  • 7. Be grateful to the people who helped you, and continue to help you, achieve your goals: parents, grandparents, friends, mentors, advisors, teachers. You have an army of people on your side helping you out. Ask them when you need help: That's what they are there for. And if you are graduating, keep in touch!

  • 6. When life is just getting on your nerves, hug someone, or a pet, or have a cupcake. The rough patch will pass. Trust us.

  • 5. Appreciate and value your friendships. Be there for them and they'll be there for you. Always think before you speak when you are angry. Once you've said it, no amount of "I'm sorry" is going to erase it. Oh, and PS: Spend some 'real' time with friends, not just on Facebook or via texting.

  • 4. Make a plan. Stick with it unless you see a better way.
  • 3. Be able to bend when you need to.

  • 2. Respect others, and respect yourself first.
  • 1. Relax. Celebrate. Revel. Be proud of yourself. Smile. There are more amazing things coming up in your life than you can even imagine. Because you are awesome.
