The Home Stretch

Well, it's May . . Cinco de Mayo . . . end of the semester.  If you are one of my freshmen, then you are close to or have recently wrapped up your first year of college.  Let me know how it's going for you.  What things have you learned about yourself as a student and person?  What words of wisdom would you tell first semester you back in August?  Share that with me.

If you are a graduating senior, you're not quite done.  You're in the home stretch.  Don't slow down or coast to the finish line.  This is the time to push harder and make sure all your hard work isn't for naught.  Take these last few weeks of high school seriously.  Cherish and celebrate them because you are about to close one chapter and begin another, but don't think you're home free until you've taken the ceremonious walk across the stage at commencement.  Continue going to class, doing homework, and studying for finals.  You owe it to yourself.  Look back with no regrets . . . and forward with no fear.
