Senior year – A year of heartbreaks ?

 

imagesPMZOKKTT

Little did I know that my high school sweetheart would break my heart during senior year. As time draws near, and we soon realize that every one of us must part our own ways, a heart-break is some what inevitable.

Being heartbroken during my senior year hardly made it easy for me to focus on what was most important at the time – studying. I recall spending hours crying, and grieving over what I thought was such a huge loss. Not surprisingly my grades began to drop slightly – it wasn’t until mid terms drew near that I realized I had to stop grieving over a heartbreak. So, I woke up one morning and decided that I had been crying a river for far too long, and now was the time to build a bridge and get over it. Believe it or not, but it wasn’t long before I found myself working hard, and maintaining my straight A’s.

Seniors, I know a having your heart broken is hard, but please don’t let it rule your senior year! Senior year is when you’re meant to work hard, and play hard. Make senior year a memorable one, but don’t forget to maintain your GPA.

7 ways to get over a senior year heartbreak :

  1. Look on the bright side, college is approaching – You have your whole life ahead to meet lots of other amazing people.
  2. Go out with your respective group of girls or guys – Girls night/Boys night is the best remedy, I assure you!
  3. Get your head in your books – Sometimes studying is the easiest way to divert your mind, and the most productive method.
  4. Draw up a senior year bucket list – With so much to do before you leave for college, you’ll be too busy to worry about a heartbreak.
  5. Read – Rather than binge watching all seasons of friends, I’ve always found reading books an easier way to divert my mind.
  6. Spend time with the fam – You’ll be going to college soon, and I guarantee you’ll miss your family; spend as much time as you can with them.
  7. Learn something new – Not having a significant other gives you a little extra time; perhaps you can use the time to learn a new instrument, or a new sport ?

DON’T – Let a heartbreak ruin senior year for you.

DO – Work hard, play hard

The SATs are your best friend…

Not very long ago I looked at my SAT book, and let out an anxious sigh. The SAT was probably my worst enemy, but also the big golden door to studying in the USA. At the time going to NYU was my dream, but unfortunately I began procrastinating on this dreaded SAT exam. Lucky for me Canada did not require SATs – don’t get me wrong, but some students applying to Canadian universities do need to send in SAT scores (Make sure you check that with your university).

I strongly urge you guys to begin studying for the SATs well ahead of your test day, because believe me it will pay off – A few months of hard work will reward you with a golden ticket to your dream university. Do the SATs seem slightly attractive now ?

Lets make the SATs attractive ?

The writing section – The easiest section shall we call it ? This is the only section where you can be creative on the SAT, and being creative is exciting ! You can even write about your own experience if you like ! Isn’t that great ? What’s better is that there is no particular answer, and you can write anything that makes sense.

The reading section – How do we see this one ? “Oh no, I have to learn a list of 500 words, and that’s terrible”. Why don’t we look at it as, “Oh wow a list of 500 fancy vocabulary words ! If I learn these words, and begin using them in my every day speech, I could make myself look smarter than the others”. You could even impress your professors by using them in your writing !

The math section – Are you a math wiz ? Maybe not. But hey! the math section is purely logic, and all you have to do is learn the math rules. This is a pretty scoring section on the SAT. Don’t fear the numbers, just love them.

DON’T – procrastinate on the SATs

DO – begin studying for them over this summer

P.S. Since I’m new to blogging, I’d love to hear your feedback over my writing. I’m open to any sort of constructive criticism.

Applying to university- The most exciting stress ?

College. Like many others, I have been through the nerve-racking process of college applications. During high school, most of us find ourselves longing to get to senior year and begin applying to college – “Oh high school sucks, I can’t wait to begin applying to college”, how many times have we said that to ourselves ? only to find ourselves eventually complaining over the bureaucracy of these applications. Oh how we wish we could go back to year 7 now …

But wait ! It doesn’t end just yet ! Universities don’t have time to look at you the very same week that you send in your application, because that’s just not how it works. There is still a dreadful wait for a month or two, maybe more. Then you may, or may not get in.

I started this blog because I believe by sharing my experience, and giving you all an insight into the do’s and don’ts, I could help you with your college application process. Since this is my first post, it is really just an introductory, so make sure you check out my blog in a few days for more information on college applications !

I will be going to University in Canada, however I did consider the UK and the USA in the past, so I might be able to help you guys out with applying to universities there too! Feel free to email me on vivrelavie_@hotmail.com if you have any personal questions !
