Tangent Time V6

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!

    So, I wrote a comment to your last post, but our slow internet ate it up… I’m going to try again and see what happens:) What wise advice! Isn’t it amazing to see how much growth has happened in your life in just four short years? This cycle will repeat itself for the rest of your life, and for you to be so introspective as you enter your adult years is admirable. I’ll be sharing this one with G.
