Where the walls so tall and stately of our Alma Mater rise,
I remember my dad saying something about him having an early meeting today but didn’t want to go back to the office. He often did that. He was a corporate attorney so he was able to bring his work home with him. When he and my mom were still married he would spend lots of nights in his office catching up with the work he missed through out the day. My father wasn’t one of those tv fathers that spend all day at the office and then bring his work home and spend most of his home time working on work. He would always make it to mine and Alex’s schools activities and things that we were doing. He was a present father. He’s been a great dad, short of marring the Replacement.
It was a Senior privilege to run in screaming during rallies. It was also a Senior privilege to wear college sweatshirts over your uniform polo, eat lunch in the quad with the school bus yellow tables and, overall, to be a profound bitch. But at the present my classmates were shrieking and waving pink and blue pom-poms and straining against the side door of the gym, so I suppose it’s safe to say that only that first privilege was relevant.

It was mid-way through my sophomore year when my parents told me about my dad's new job. We would be moving from Connecticut to Massachusetts. Despite us moving only three hours away, it was at the time the biggest change that had happened to me. I (initially) did not handle it well. In my freshman year, I had created a plan for all four years of high school. The classes I would take, the friends I would have, even the type of prom dress I wanted to wear. I was devested by the fact that everything was being destroyed. And so, I went into denial.

As someone who has successfully just come out of a senior year alive and (relatively) okay, I feel like it's kind of my unofficial duty to pass on what I've learned from my experiences over the year. Everyone is different, of course, but this is just what I've been able to take away from it. Keep in mind this is also from the perspective of someone who came down with a wild case of senioritis five days into the school year.

The night before results day was a nightmare. I couldn’t sleep, my friends were waking up from actual nightmares, and I realised this day ended a whole era of my life.
Going into high school is nerve wracking for a lot of students. Having their environment change and being around older people can be very overwhelming. I remember my summer from eighth grade to freshman year go by so fast, but when it was time to start high school, I was prepared because of some of the things my brother had told me. These are some of the tips that he recommended and a few that I learned on the way.
