Advice from a hall roamer

May 21, 2015


It blows my mind that in only a matter of days my time roaming the BSM hallways will be over, and I will be an alumni of the place where I have spent the last six  years of my life. Looking back now through all my mistakes and my accomplishments throughout high school, I believe I have some helpful advice to those in the grades below me.

  1. It is important to start strong at the beginning of each semester. After the first few weeks of review, you actually start to learn new material and throughout the year the content only gets harder. Starting off strong allows you to have a cushion towards the end of the semester allowing you to do well in the class,even if you have some issues with the final.
  2. Throughout high school my biggest downfall has been my organization. Being unorganized can lead you into a downward spiral that is hard to come out of. Invest in a planner, notebook, and folder for each class. Staying organized through a planner makes it easy to remember homework that is due the next day, using your planner it makes it harder to miss homework assignments thus resulting in no 0’s in your grade book.
  3. Finally, my last piece of advice is to join different clubs and sports teams.  One of my biggest regrets in high school is not getting involved in different clubs until my senior year. If you are on the edge about joining a club, I would highly recommend that you do it. Being part of different groups in the school has been nothing but a positive experience for me and has lead me to new friendships and some really good memories.

Enjoy the time you have left in high school because it flies by,  push yourself to do well in school, but don’t beat yourself up if you slip up at one point- grades are important, but they are not the only things colleges look at. Appreciate the people around you, and enjoy the time you have left.
