What’s up, guys? It’s The Myriad here. I hope everyone is having a fantastic day. I’m on Spring Break so I am very happy. I still have some homework to do, but I don’t have to go to school and get more of it which is a plus. As I was thinking about what to write this morning, I decided to look inward and bring you a more personal blog post. I hope you enjoy!
For those of you who don’t know, I am a senior in high school, but I am taking college classes full time. I was homeschooled for most of my life until my Junior year when I attended a community college full time. After about two years of hard work, it is starting to pay off as I will graduate with an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts when I receive my high school diploma.
It has not been an easy road. I can remember my first time ever attending a college class. It was soooo stressful. I got over it and I was able to adapt, but it took a lot of quieting my nerves to calm down and figure out how I was going to survive. Fast forward a year and a half, here I am, a senior. I’ve taken a total of sixty-four college credits in subjects from Trigonometry to Pottery.
If I could say just three sentences to freshmen coming into high school it would be this:
Don’t wish for the times ahead to be over. There is always something worth living for. It’s only four years and four years is not a long time.
I can testify and say this: I don’t think I followed these words. I spent much of my time in high school wrapped up in “pity parties” rather than enjoying the time I had. Looking back now from the other side of the fence, I can see that I was just a little selfish. The trouble now is not making the same mistake with the time in front of me. Because I am suddenly filled with melancholiness and the temptation to sit back and lament over graduating is great. But I cannot do this. And none of you should either.
The bottom line is: Enjoy the times ahead, try new and different things, make new friends, oh! and get a job. Even if it is only one or two days a week, it will keep your life from getting stagnant as fast. I know because currently I don’t have one and I wish I did. Haha!
Check back this Friday for a new post. Be sure to like, comment, or follow the blog if you haven’t. Thank’s everyone! Have a great week!!!! That is it!
