4 Pieces of Advice for High School Graduates

Would you like to hear 4 Pieces of Advice for High School Graduates? Buying your first laptop, filling out applications, learning how to find deals on toilet paper and dish soap, applying for scholarships, learning how to make mom’s famous grilled cheese sandwich, finding your first apartment, finally learning how to do your own laundry without turning all of your clothes pink…the last few months of high school can be extremely exciting and overwhelming at the same time.

I’ve been there. So today I’m going to share with you four tips that will help you smoothly transition into your new life experiences.

 1. Learn How to Manage your Time & Prioritize

You are probably already good at managing your time. Between school work, extracurriculars, sports, your part-time job and non-school responsibilities, you’ve got it all under control.


But leaving your friends, family and the comforts of home adds a whole new level of complexity. You are now in charge of yourself. Therefore, it’s important that you learn how to prioritize what needs to be done and when. Making a prioritized to-do list for each week (or day, for those other Type-As out there) is a great way to make sure you stay on track.

2. Stay Active

High school by its very nature keeps students fairly active, no matter what your interests or co curricular activities may be. Working full-time or attending college requires a lot more “down time” where you’re reading or at a desk. Your brain actually functions better when you exercise regularly. If at all possible, get yourself up and moving for at least a half hour every day. Join a league, play intramurals, join a walking club, go cross-country skiing…no matter what you choose, your body with thank you.

3. Learn Where To Park

If you move to a new town or city, be sure to brush up on local parking regulations. There’s nothing worse than being towed for unknowingly parking in a seemingly harmless spot.


If you’re attending a university, the parking police take their jobs very seriously and they don’t hesitate to write tickets. I am quite convinced that most universities sell more parking passes than they have spaces to actually park in. You probably think that seems like a no-brainer, but when you’re already late for a test and that certain spot will shave off another two to three minutes, parking illegally seems logical.

4. Throw a Great Graduation Celebration

Graduating from high school is a great accomplishment worth celebrating. Make it memorable by inviting all of your close friends and family members. Put up a few decorations, display your accomplishments, serve delicious foods and savor all that was and all that will be. We may be a bit biased, but a proper invitation brings everything together.
