Top 10 Things Everyone Should Know Before Leaving School

 

Whenever I look back, I remember students always thinking of joining college too soon. Many students are eager to enter college and take on the adult world immediately after high school. In the process of growing up, students eventually fail to realize that after school life is not fun. During High school years, we focus so much on academic accomplishments that many times, we overlook the necessary life skills or lessons. I am going to list a few things that will give them lead start irrespective of where they are moving ahead. It’s essential for every student to maintain balance and focused on their life on achieving their goal.

Top 10 things everyone should know before leaving school

  1. Advance Planning of future:

By planning, I don’t mean to plan about the job or the money aspect but be prepared for the real life course. During school life, you need to research thoroughly about your future master subject and explore your opportunities according to your interests. School life is so much fun, but amid that fun, always fix your priorities and learn to work on them. That will improve your overall personality as well.

  1. If not this, then what?

Always be prepared for plan B. If not this, then what? We all have goals, but we need to differentiate between real life goals and fantasy. As a student, we are crazy to go and get the thing done, but when we step out in adult life, things are not as easy as it seems to be. Be passionate about what you want; work hard to achieve it, but in case if it doesn’t work out then be ready with plan B. Be consistent with your work and determined.

  1. Think out of the box

As a student, you have a pool of golden opportunities. Don’t just jump to a conclusion, without examining or analyzing the situation. You have ample of career options to explore. Don’t just look for traditional courses like- Engineering or Medical. Keep on researching the subject you like the most and want to build a career. The research will make you more confident and independent.

  1. Be more involved in co-curricular activities

High school students can be excused for lack of social skills, but out in the real world, it’s essential to get along with people, shake hands, look others in the eye and carry on simple conversations. While some teens’ youthful confidence can be seen as cockiness, others are too timid to speak up. Learning a more balanced approach — being confident but not overconfident — will help them throughout their lives.

  2. You build real connection in school :

    After high school, when physical education classes and sports are over, it’s easy to abandon the exercise. Teens should establish a routine for activity and make it a part of their everyday lives — whether by joining a health club or getting involved in a sports league — will help them stay fit and deal better with stress.

One thing you need to know about school life is that after this phase is over, its hard to find real-life connections. You have friends with whom you have cried and shared your happiness at the same time. They know your weakness, your vulnerability, your strengths, and maybe about all the things you laugh. That’s a particular part of school life. You get very close and maybe that bond lasts forever and ever.

  1. Do what your heart wants, you have enough time to explore

As I say do what you want to do. Just do it with perfection. Whether you choose to engineer or you choose Mass media as a career involves yourself entirely into it. Enjoy your life to the fullest but don’t get distracted in the way. It’s vital to maintain consistency even in student life.

8. Maintenance and Upkeep

Whether home will be a dorm room or apartment, teens should know the basics of taking care of it. Learning to hang pictures without harming the walls will keep dorms and landlords from charging for damage. Regular cleaning of at least the bathroom and floors will provide a sanitary environment and make it easier to clean when the school year or lease is over.

 

9.Don’t play safe, start thinking of ways to earn pocket money

Whether they’re going to work or college, teens will soon need to find a job. While schools often help students put together resumes, they also need to know how to look for posts on and off campus. It’s called a “job hunt” for a reason — hunting is required, asking for help, networking and getting creative about new places to look. True independence includes knowing how to get around. Every teen should know how to drive a car before leaving school, including driving at night, in all weather conditions and on highways. They should also know what information to exchange after an accident. But a car is not the only way to get around town; it’s also essential to understand how to use public transportation. Teens should know how to find and read a bus schedule, access the subway, and call a taxi.

10.School is not the end; life has just started

Start working on your decision making and problem- solving process. Teens need to know how to solve problems themselves — to speak up, ask questions and be assertive. Living with a roommate requires compromise, setting boundaries, voicing concerns, and settling disputes. Professors expect students to take the initiative if they need help. Teens whose parents have intervened for them up until this point need to step back and let their kids solve their problems.
