Molly Golemo's Senior Column

I’m graduating from Ames High? Holy crap. I mean, I knew I would graduate. I just didn’t know it would come so freakin’ fast. Ever since I was a freshman I was ready to be done with high school…now I’m not so sure. It’s going to be different not waking up at 7 in the morning and rushing to school to find I have to park in the back lot. There are going to be so many things that I’m never have to do ever again. Know I’m starting all over next year as a freshman at the University of Iowa. I’m not worried about going into the unknown; I’m worried about leaving everything familiar behind. Here are some words of wisdom for you juniors that will soon be seniors: be nice to your classmates, do the work but don’t spend too much time on it, do something crazy but don’t get yourself caught, follow through with your goals but don’t be afraid to change your mind fifty times, apply for scholarships but don’t be upset when you receive absolutely nothing (join fastweb.com), be nice to your siblings but don’t forget to show them who’s boss every once in a while, you can take the ACT’s or SAT’s more than once but don’t take them five times, do something that scares you but don’t hurt yourself, apply for college early but don’t do it this summer, have good relationships but don’t get sexually transmitted infections, don’t dwell in the past but don’t freak about the future, and finally, finish what you started before you start something new.
