Life after high school is what you make of it. I graduated high school June 2012 and was in Navy boot camp that August. I spent all of senior year working toward being ready for the military. Life has its ups and downs. However, if I can give you any advice, learn all you can about how credit, finances and loans work before you go to college. Student loans are very dangerous debts and, for 99.5% of people, cannot be discharged. I highly recommend the military if you can handle it. They teach you a lot. Even if you do not join the military, really take the time to think about what you want from life before committing to college. The first year of college is core subjects like math, history, English, etc. Take those classes first. Beyond that, it is ok to take a break if you don't know what career you want. No matter what though, make smart moves to build your credit. Your credit score runs your adult life.
When you leave high school there is not a single thing stopping you from doing anything you want to. But also everything is solely your responsibility. It's not your employer's job to tell you when to wake up and it's not even their job to hire you. You can be as lazy as you want but the repercussions leave only you to blame. You can continue through higher education but its honestly not for everyone so you will need to find a source of income if that's the case. The main thing to know is life moves at the pace you give it, things will be happening all around you and you need to make the decisions as to what to take part of
Different! I went straight into college after graduating (part of me wishes I would have taken some time off, but I had college scholarships so I couldn't). I was excited, nervous... glad to be out on my own for once.Anyway, your senior year goes quick: make the most of it, have good memories, and get ready for the next adventure of your life. By the end of your senior year, you should have decided if you're going straight to college, travel, or work a while.
I decided to work for a year after high school so it gave me time to think what I wanted to do with my life, and gave me time to plan out college. I'd recommend taking a year of work after school to anyone, rather than immediately hoping straight into college
It sucked for the first few years, I was around friends in high school that didn’t want to go to university or college, my principal and teachers thought I was a bad student and people didn’t believe in him. I decided to smarten up, discipline myself and get my diploma from adult school and take night school classes. I eventually got into the top universities locally around Toronto. First year and a half of uni was a new challenge and I didn’t think I could do that either. Took 2 years off to work at a bank. Decided to go back to uni, did well, got on the deans list, graduated my undergrad in political science and obtained my degree now I’m in law school. It doesn’t matter what people say just gotta keep pushing and clawing.
I was hoping to go straight into culinary arts school after H. S.but there were dang problemsSo next year 2020 will be the beginning of my future Chef career.. so what out Bobby Flay or Gordan Ramsey or Emeril Lagassé or Mario Bátalí oops he turned into a pèé-fêrt 😬🙄
High school was probably the worst 4 years of my life because nothing was fun, everything seemed pointless, and every day I watched kids being sh*theads to each other but absolutely nothing would be done about it because the school didn't want to discipline their star athletes or face the wrath of the self-righteous parents.Everything, and I mean everything to include college, military deployments, and the civilian workforce is better than high school.
I view the school system as a place where the guide lines are set but no one really actually tries that hard to keep you in line. It's a place you learn how to become responsible rather than a place that teaches you how to be smart. If you want the grades you work for them, if you want friends you find them. You can mess up so much in school but since it isn't the real world yet you can always bounce back. The teachers never care about the students, the students don't care about anything, just like you'll see in the big open world; it's a mini social experiment where the researchers are the students. They find themselves and learn what everyone else is doing. They learn to communicate and how to cope with stress. School isn't there to give you a good time or teach you, you have to do that stuff. School is there to keep you busy so your parents don't have to spend 56 hours a week showing you the real world and hoping they do it right. If you wanted a good time that was your prerogative, if you wanted to learn that's on you as well. You as a person are literally no one's responsibility, they only need to worry about you being alive when you get home. I had a terrible time in school, but I figured out what I had learned there when I graduated and its helped me a lot
It seems like a life time ago 😂I live such a different life now, I’ve changed so much not only in looks but personality wise too.I finished secondary school 8 years ago; then went onto 6th form (college) and then did 4 years at university. During those years I felt like I was still in school. It’s after graduating I’ve become the person I am now.
I was you age. I blinked and now i'm 43 lol It goes by fast. I'm not saying don't work hard for your future. But stop and enjoy the scenery every now and then because to quote Ferris Bueller " life goes by pretty quick if you don't stop to look around once in a while you could miss it".
Pretty intense. A lot of ups and downs. Joined the Marine Corps out of high school. Life after high school is never what you think it’s going to be. Whatever plan you have... well... planned to get fucked over a couple times and watch that straight and narrow path take a couple of detours lol. Life is what you make it though. Work as hard as you can and hustle throughout your early 20s and start seeing the benefits once you start getting to my age. Life is good right now.
Mine was pretty good. Summer was fun, and then I went off to college. I’m a junior now and thus far it’s been one of the best experiences of my life, if not the best. You couldn’t pay me to go back to my old life.
Right now it's okay. I just finished in last week of August and taking a break first semester. Right now I work at an Amusement Park and it's okay. Pays a little over minimum wage. But I know I can't live off of that. Hopefully I will go back to school next semester and major in film. But I'm still debating because I hated school growing up. But I know God has a plan for me.
Enjoy your high school days because they go by so fast.
I finished high school at 17 but didn’t mature until I was 21 and didn’t find my purpose until I was 34.
It's like coming out of your safty zone and full on belly flopping off a diving board into a bush full of thorns thats embedded in the depths of hell
I went to college with some girls I knew from High school. It was more time alone by myself studying and being at home with my family. Church was the same, every Sunday.
It depends. Was either a version of hellOn earth or not to shabby
Graduated this year, been out a few months now, it's aight, just be prepared to lose contact with a lot of friends
Very adventurous. Joining the Marine Corps was the biggest adventure amongst them all. 🌸💜🌸
Awesome! I hated high school and couldnt wait to move out of my parents place.
If you think life is hard now, oh boy oh boy what a surprise it will be xD...
After high school is when life starts getting good!
Life started getting much better I left high school this year and I already have more freedom even though I’m on my first week of college
Everything goes by fast but of course fun then late twenties life start catching up with me
It wasn't easy, but you still gotta do what you have to do in other words you still have to keep pushing to get to your destination
It's been alright if you don't go to college it a lot of working
Terrible. College didn't go well so I dropped out to pursue work and I've been unable to find a job after being fired..
It almost feels like yesterday when I was still in high school, but I graduated 7 years ago!
Worse, better, bad, decent and now great!!! It's a process and you can't rush it.
The best and worst years of life. Just about nothing you are doing now will matter in a few years, get ready for the ride!
left after finishing 10th grade for the U. S. Army and Vietnam
