Once We Enter College It’s Either Smooth Or Rough Sailing, The Choice Is Ours

After high school, we begin to enter the “real world”. We begin to move out of the house, get new jobs, and maybe go to college. But instead of our superiors nagging at us to get our lives together, we are on our own this time. No test corrections. No extra credit. No second chances.

The only way to help avoid these problems is to try our best to get it right the first time. This all depends on how each of us, as students, pay attention in class and study individually. Trying to make an excuse as to why our work is incomplete won’t cut it. We can’t blame our teachers for incomplete work. When colleges look at grades, they don’t look at the teacher, they look at the student. In the end, the work done falls on our shoulders.

Being lazy might slide in high school, but in life after school, lazy leads to failure. And their are no extra credit assignments for real life failures.

It’s time to start getting organized. Their are calenders on your phone for a reason. Use them. Teachers stay after school to help YOU. Take advantage of that time. Got a smart phone?

We may not realize it now, but high school is day care compared to college. And in the wise words of Paramore, “Don’t go cryin’ to your mama when you’re on your own in the real world.”
