As opposed to the general idea, senior year is not all hunky-dory or laid back. In fact, it is anything but laid-back. This is where your management skills are tested. Managing everything during your final year of high school is nothing less than managing life itself. The beginning of a new life (the start of the rest of your life) will take place, the toughest decision (the choice of college) has to be made, the toughest exam (where are you really headed) needs to be given, and the toughest goodbyes (parting ways with your closest friends) have to be said. Doesn't sound easy or laid-back anymore, does it?
Senior year is challenging; it puts your ability to outshine yourself to the test. It is a bridge which takes you from your present to the start of your future. A single mistake now could affect you for the rest of your life. One wrong step, and you might never be able to achieve your childhood dream of becoming a musician, or a traveler, or a doctor.
But do it right, and you could be at the top your game for the rest of your life. How should you do it right? Where should you not go 'wrong'? Here's how: avoid these most common senior year mistakes, and you will be just fine.
