HOW HAS LIFE CHANGED SINCE GRADUATION:
I’M SO MUCH HAPPIER AND FREEE. I HAVE FREEDOM. High school is so terrible compared to college lol. You’ll love it here. In high school this time of year I was so sad and stressed. Now I have a month off in between semesters! 😊
ADVICE FOR THE CLASS OF 2021?
DO ALL YOUR WORK AND HAVE A PLANNER. ALL YOUR WORK!!! WRITE DOWN YOUR HOMEWORK. DON’T SKIP CLASS. And try not to take more than 6 classes a semester. 5 is a good starter. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! And don’t freak out. College isn’t as stressful as high school. Seriously, save your money.
“Just save as much money as you can. And don’t go into debt.” — The whole college population.
