“I have two rules for anyone in high school. Rule number one: choose your best friends carefully – pretty self-explanatory and yet very important – and rule number two: DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. It is important to not procrastinate until the last second. I had a little problem with this last school year – my Junior year – I took a couple of College Credit Plus courses through the University of Cincinnati because I’m getting free college credits and gaining high school credits that go on my transcript which count towards graduation. One of the classes I took was on politics. Not fun at all. The class got progressively harder as the year went on and the very last project for the class was to write a complete six-page essay. The paper before this one was only a three-page essay so I just felt intimidated by writing six. I can’t remember exactly what the subject was about in that paper. It’s been a year and my memory isn’t amazing, but it was assigned to me three weeks before its due date at the end of the semester. I put off doing the assignment and ended up not starting it until the night before it was due. I started at 8 PM, and after only seven hours of typing and spell-checking, I was able to submit it and go to bed at 3 AM. I wanted to die. I ended up turning it in a little later than I wanted to, but it was alright and I ended up passing that politics class. It’s worth noting that your teachers give you time periods or deadlines on assignments so that you have time to finish them and get them turned in. It’s a rule for a reason. Don’t procrastinate. Do your work when it is assigned to you or you’ll regret it.”
