What should every freshman at your school know before they start?


As I am out of high school, and have been for three years now, I realize that hindsight is always 20/20, but I know if I was able to talk to myself as a senior, I would tell myself that I should have decided what I really wanted to do earlier in my high school career. I am sure that there are very few high school students who know that they want to do for their life, but if I had known that what I really wanted to be was a nurse, I would have taken more classes that would have prepared me better for this career and it would have been easier on me when starting college.


I would let myself know that I do have the ability to go to college. That I will be able to accomplish receiving a degree. I would let myself know that I did join the Army and that it is good for my confidence and gives me good communicating skills which is very important to any business. I would tell myself about the knowledge of Health Information and how much I can learn, that I love to learn. I would let myself know that joining the Army would also help in education expenses and that while I am in I should pursue my career. That if I knew what I know now, I would of recieved my degree while I was in the Army.
