I would tell myself to get my mind off boys and get back to the books. I should have been busy studying instead of trying to go after boys. I should have put more effort into all of my classes. I now regret that I didn't do as well as I should have in high school. I never thought that I could ever make a 3.8 GPA. Now that I have I know that I could have been doing it all along. College is a lot better than high school though. And I have a lot more fun taking the classes that I want to take how I want to take them.


I would tell myself to take the opprotunities your faced with now because they may not be there later on. I would also remind myself that the peson you were raised to be is beautiful, so stay with your gut, and keep in mind where I've always wanted to be. I like the thought of myself staying foucsed, but also remaining free. I have lived though many pleasing and not so deliteful experinces in my life, since high school, but every one has made an impact on who I am and where I stand today. Always being in the best of all situations isn't likely to build a valuable character, but it is likely to increase life's production of your own personal value. Maintain a balance this way, allow others to win, accept losing and take the time to develop the strength to move on. Do not dwell, daydreaming is wonderful, but don't let it consume all of your time. I would tell myself that life is amazing, but limited. I would say, see all your eyes can read and to learn every step of the way. Be Grateful Darling, You are Blessed.


If I could go back in time to talk to myself as a highschool senior knowing what I know now there would be numerous advice tips I would give myself. First, I would have told myself not to worry about what comes next, because in due time it would come to me as long as I stayed on the path that I was already on. Secondly, I would have told myself to take my senior year a little more seriously, because more things could have came up for me if I had worked harder for it. Third, I would have told myself to be more confident about the work I do, because generally the work I do is good its just not the best work I could have done. Last, but not least, I would have told myself to listen more to my families advice instead of ignoring them when they have already experienced I have done, and I'am thankful for their support for me succeed.


I would tell myself not to attend college just because someone else expects you to. If necessary, take some time off, get some work and life experience, and then college. You may have a better idea of what you want to do and have more of the discipline to accomplish success in college.


If i could go back in time to talk to myself as a high school senior i would say, look for some schools in the state you are in because, having to pay out of state tuition can cost alot. Also, follow the words of your father "Work first play later."


If I could go back to my senior year I would tell myself to expect change. Its the most consistent thing we go through in our lives. I would tell myself not to afraid of the trasitions that comes with growing up and accepting more responsibilty. Its key when it comes down to the defineing moments in our lives because our reactions to those two thing will either make a person or break a person's spirit. So be confident because these two may seem like avirsity but they are common and appens alot mor than seldomly.


I would tell my younger self to apply early and to do everything as soon as the appropriate places opened. I would also tell her not to get too overwhelmed, as it is just school. There would be a lot of people that would want to see her succeed and since she is an intelligent girl, she would do them proud.


The senior year does resemble a sort of double-duty function. It is a time when you should celebrate your accomplishments, but it's also a time when you have to work hard to prepare for your future. One way to be prepared is to recognize how college studies will differ from high school studies. The other way to prepare is to tie up loose ends when it comes to college and financial aid applications. I also, should know the reality of college planning is this: some students start early and some start in their senior year. That is fine, as long as the actions match the goals. The best advice for high school students is to think realistically about the type of college you want to attend and plan accordingly.


If I could go back in time and talk to myself about college. I would tell myself things I need to do to become a successful college graduate. I would tell myself to get good grades in high school. I would tell myself what I want to major in and stick to that career. So, that I would not waste any time or money going to college. I would apply and receive scholarships to help pay for my college degree. I would tell myself to, go to MIlwaukee Area Technical College and complete my associates degree in Paralegal studies. Because it's a great school and it's affordable. I would tell myself to go to college right after high school. Before I decide to have a family so, that I wouldn't have any reasons to get distracted. Then, I would tell myself what my next goal would be. Which would be to attend the University of Milwaukee Wisconsin to complete my bachelors degree. Then I would tell myself to take my education even further . So, I could become the Lawyer that I want to become while I am still young vibrant and intelligent.


I would definitely tell myself to stop clowning around and study harder. Even though I got very good grades throughout my High School journey and gratuated with a GPA of 3.5 cummulative, I know I could have done better if I would have given it my all. I was always in the honor roll in my High School for 4 years and was also the President of student council. I would also tell myself to apply for scholarships because I did nto apply for any when I gratuated and now I'm stuck paying for my own tuition. I don't get any help from FAFSA or my parents so the least I could have done was apply and hopefully get some help moneywise. Since I didn't apply, I had to take off 1 year to work full time and save up to pay for my college, now that I am back into college I am trying to apply for many scholarships hoping to get some help financially so I can continue with me education and pursue my career in Criminal Justice and in the future be part of the DEA or work narcotics.
