My High School Reflection

my senior photo

June 9th was my last ever day of high school and this weekend I will me walking across the stage to receive my diploma. So, because of that, today I decided to share what I learned in high school.

Find a balance. It may be difficult but in high school, it is really important to find a balance between getting good grades and then being social or taking other opportunities. Your grades are very important. They determine a lot, obviously, what colleges you get into, the scholarships you are eligible for and also very important are the programs you are able to get into after you are accepted to colleges such as education programs, accounting programs, and medical programs.

My AP classes were not completely worth it, I also took Gemini (college classes), these classes were MUCH easier.

Friendships in high school are always changing. You aren't always going to be friends with everyone and that's okay. During my freshman and sophomore years, I had quite a lot of friends but then by my junior and senior year I was still friendly however I realized that I had become close with a smaller group of friends who were always there for me.

Another important lesson that I learned during my junior and senior year was that not all teachers are nice or like you. Throughout my entire time in school, all of my teachers liked me until I was in 11th grade. I was in a class where we planned activities for our school like homecoming and did community service. I wrote this teacher a thank you note for helping with an event that we coordinated and I apparently miss spelled a word, which I was unaware of, then she sent the note back to my teacher and she proceeded by telling my entire class.

You do not have to play sports, I played basketball for 3 years but never really enjoyed it, I only played because I felt like I had to. Then I realized that I did not need to be doing something that was not bringing me any happiness. Although I decided to no longer play basketball I knew the importance of getting involved in school because this looks great to colleges and scholarships. Also, being involved makes high school much more fun!

COLLEGE GROCERY STAPLES

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …

THE COZIEST THERMAL FOR WINTER

Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!
