Top 10 Ridiculous Things High School Students Hear

As this school year comes to a close, seniors are counting down the days until Spring Break, and more importantly the days until graduation. We are also preparing to move to college. The transition from high school to college could be the biggest change in our lives in the last four years.

As such, we need friendly guidance and honest answers to a lot of questions. Of course, every opinion of the college experience is different.  Teachers will share stories, (the good, the bad and the ugly) parents will try to help us along the way, and we will continue to form our own opinions about what’s to come in the very near future.

Here is a list, inspired by those featured on David Letterman’s late night show and made by high school seniors, of the top 10 things we’re worrying about this year. Some of them make us laugh, others make us feel nervous, but all of them have crossed our minds at least once.

10. You’re going to miss high school. You’ll come back and visit.

9. Oh, you’re going to a party school.

8. You will use this for the rest of your life.

7. You’re not in the real world yet.

6. Professors are evil.

5. You’ll be fine next year.

4. High school is harder than college.

3. These are the greatest years of your life.

2. Always remember this, it’s really important.

1. We [the teachers] are preparing you for college.

Whatever the case may be, whether we’re excited or nervous to start college, it’s going to happen sooner or later, and we just have to figure it out. Teachers are nothing but willing to help us in any way they can. Our parents play an even bigger role in the college transition. If we take it one day at a time, the good, the bad, and the ugly might turn into the adventure of a lifetime. I’m sure we’ll be surprised about what the future holds for us.
