Advice from a Senior Who Waited too Long to Start Caring
By Kenzi Pendleton
I walked into those front doors prepared for four years to breeze by without me having to put effort in anything. Boy, was I so very wrong.
If only I would’ve cared, if only I would’ve know the impact my decisions have made on my life, maybe I wouldn’t be in the situation I am now. This isn’t a sob story, this is an eye opener.
Some words of advice: start caring now. I thought that studying didn’t matter. I thought that turning in homework was stupid. In fact, I thought that school itself was stupid.
Little did I know that these actions would lead to a very large fork in the road to my future. I’m at the end of my senior year and because I didn’t care to begin my high school career with, I’m struggling to make things work to ensure my graduation, and it’s terrifying.
Please don’t be like me. Study those notes, prepare for that test, don’t skip breakfast, go to bed before midnight and please, please, for the betterment of yourself and your future, care.
