Live within every moment like it's your last! - Luba K
Senior Bucket List
by Kasey Hobson | Class of 2016
The moment you finally get to caption your insta pics with "Momma, I made it", "Class of 2017" or "The tassel was worth the hassle" is almost here for you seniors.
Senior Year Bucket List:
* Get to know someone: One person in your school, grade or community. One person you don't know, have never talked to before or maybe even judged. You never know what kind of relationship can come or how you labeled someone wrong before you got to know them.
* SLOW DOWN: Soon you won't be able to spend 6hrs a day, 5 days a week with these people. Soon you may never see some of your peers again. Enjoy every moment and the people who share them with you!
* Be a mentor to underclassmen: They look up to you (not just because you are much taller). You are the biggest influence for the years to follow at your high school.
* Rip up your "cool card": SHS students may be familiar with this but it's very true! Don't be afraid to go out of your comfort zone or think you are too cool to join in on the fun high school experiences.
* Make a goal or many: Some of you may know exactly what you want to do but others may need to sit down and think about what they want there life to look like after high school.
* Continue to educate yourself: Whether you are going to a 4 year university, community college, straight into a career or have no idea, make sure you continue to learn. What I really mean by this is to look at everything as a learning opportunity. If something doesn't go as planned don't look at it as a failure but a lesson and start again with more knowledge than the last time.
* Make a lasting impression: Seniors this is your moment to show your classmates who you are and what you want to be remembered as.
* Stay true to yourself: Sometimes you can get caught up in high school and lose sight of who you are. It's not too late to make changes and work on yourself!
* Say what you need to: Now is the time to say thank you to all the people who have helped get you where you are today. Now is the time to fix any relationships (or at least try) that need mended.
* Be open-minded: This is probably my most important senior bucket list item. Please know there are more people than just yourselves out there. People who were raised differently, believe differently and think different than you may have been raised, believe or think. Know that your idea of happiness isn't the same as others. Don't take away others happiness!
At the end of your senior year I hope you can look back with no regrets because I remember sitting in those chairs, waiting for my name to be called so I could walk across the stage to receive my diploma, and wishing I could have done so much more. Take every opportunity to grow as a person, build relationships and work towards who you want to be. Use this bucket list or create your own to make sure you make your senior year the best it can be because it's not just the end of high school but the start of your future.
