Sure, the new year technically begins January 1st, but everybody knows that the start of the new school year is what really matters. You’re not making your New Year’s resolutions on December 31st; you’re making them the couple of weeks before school starts. After all, it’s been an entire summer since the majority of your classmates have seen you or heard about your ventures.
So why is THIS year your year?
Well, it mostly has to do with the new pair of awesome boots you bought on sale in August that will undoubtedly catapult you into a higher social status, but it’s also the fact that you’ve been hustling on Cappex to keep up with your college goals.
So here is why THIS is your year:
1. You have your college search under control
This is your year because instead of fretting over how you’re possibly going to find your perfect college match, you’ve already taken the time to find which colleges and universities suit you best. That frees you up for putting your anxiety where it should be: on your social life and/or homework.
2. You have some scholarships under your belt
Thinking about staying in on Friday nights to save mullah? Too bad. You’ve already saved money by applying for scholarships that you’ve been matched to. That means you have to go bowling even if you don’t feel like it because you have the extra cash (bring your own socks…trust me).
3. You’ve visited colleges or have plans to do so
This is your year because now when your buddies go, “Hmm, I wonder what college is like?” You can be all like, “It’s like this: [insert explanation]” because you’ve actually visited colleges and discovered which ones appeal to you.
4. You have your college future on track
This is your year because you are keeping up with your college goals. You have done what it takes to research which schools you want to apply to, you’ve worked on your essays over the summer, you’ve asked for a teacher recommendation, and you’ve scored well on the ACT or SAT. You have your college future in your hands, and you’re doing well.
Not feeling that this year is yours yet? Grab the reigns of your college search. The more control you have over your future, the better you will feel in general.
