You’ll likely be alarmed at just how fast your junior and senior high school years can fly by. One day, you’re fumbling along in freshman orientation and the next you’re making post-prom plans and switching the tassel on your mortarboard from right to left. Your last two years of high school make up a demanding transitional time, finishing up one stage of your life and embarking on another. Even if you’re the most organized master planner, you may find that things slip below the radar if you don’t making a conscious effort to stay on track. And, unfortunately, things like SAT and ACT test dates and college application deadlines don’t seem to care that your senior class trip is tomorrow or that your final spring break adventure falls on the same weekend as the ACT. Try setting up reminders through your phone or email – but don’t discount the functionality of the old standby wall calendar. Often, just looking at the same thing over and over is the most effective way to commit it to memory, which you’ve probably discovered from all that standardized test preparation you’ve been doing. Right??
