Did you say Senior? By Bridget Schroll

As I sat down with my advisor to talk about classes for my last year here at Mercy, I came to the realization that this was the last time I would be doing this. This was my last chance to take any of the classes I want, my last chance to take all those required classes and my last chance to decide my own fate.

Although I am still a junior and I have plenty of time left here at Mercy, the reality that in a few short months, we will be top dogs has really hit me hard. We had a senior volleyball meeting to talk about the plan for the summer and our plan for the season. Only three short years have gone by and before we know it, it will be time to say goodbye.

Just having finished PA (prom announcement) and all the work that went into planning for that event, it seems like junior year is complete. But it is far from over. I am taking the ACT soon which is the first big step in getting ready for college, which is one of the biggest parts of senior year.

I am excited, yet scared for the future, as I am sure many others are as well. The best I can say is believe in yourself. Life is hard and there is no avoiding that, but what we can do is give it our all. Work hard for what you want and it will come to you.

The best advice I can give to anyone that wants to make the best out of their senior year is to simply give it your all. Attend games, go to plays, dress in theme. Honestly just embrace Mercy to its fullest. You can only get out of it what you put it, so you might as well give Mercy everything you have to offer and watch what an amazing person you will turn into. There is no time like the present.
