Alright, it’s sophomore year of high school. We’ve survived the low-class, and undesirable freshmen year, and now it’s time to coast on through right? Think again. Even though you still have three years left of your high school career, now it’s time to add to the stress and start thinking about college. You start asking yourself the most important question that we’ve all been asked millions of times before, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Well, this is the time in your life when you start brainstorming the answer to this question. So, what is it? What do you want to be? There are tons of different career fields one can pursue, but which one is right for you? Which one makes you feel the most passionate? Now, obviously this answer isn’t going to be set in stone, you have plenty of time to change your mind and edit your decision, but as a sophomore in high school you need to begin analyzing this. Don’t stress, this all should come fairly natural to you, but hard work also needs to be involved as well. If you’re dream is to be the best defense attorney in the state of New York, then obviously we’re going to start hitting the books early. High school is the perfect time to start practicing for that goal. Begin with talking to your counselor, let them in on your aspirations, ask them what classes you should take while in high school to get that school of your dreams to accept you, and always work hard. It’s going to seem stressful, and trust me, it will be, but you I’ll let you in on a little secret that got me through this rough point in my life. Manage your time. You can still go hang out with your friends, but don’t keep putting that five page essay for English off because you’re trying to reach that next round in Nazi Zombies on Call of Duty: Black Ops, get it done before. Once it’s done you’ll feel accomplished and ready to kick some zombie butt, and move onto the next step of reaching your goals.
