If I could give myself advice as a high school senior, I would advise myself to take advantage of post secondary options because from your senior year to your freshman year in college, it can be just a couple months. It can be very beneficial to save money by taking those classes while in high school. As a high school senior find out what your goals and dreams are in finding a career because it is really important when making those college decisions to pay close attention to the programs offered and how successful you can see yourself at that college. Furthermore, college is an experience and just a stepping stone to where you are going to be, learn from mistakes, make many friends, never stop learning and most of all enjoy this life experience.
When I was a high school student back in 1986, I didn't think much about school. I thought it was a waste of time. Over the years, my opinion has changed. Time has made me a little wiser and along with that I have realized how important education is.
If I could go back in time, I would first tell myself that education is very important and there is so much to learn. Don't be a copy, be an original person. I would tell myself, "Don't be afraid of going after your dreams, you will find the gold at the end of the rainbow if you let yourself dream. College is not scary monster, the teachers are there to help you. Don't be afraid to ask questions and keep on trying. So don't put off schooling, it is a mistake if you do."
