High School Senior Tips

Hey my loved ones!

If you’re new reading on this blog, I’m Shabria. And. if you’re not, welcome back and virtual hugs to you.

So, while I was on my small blog hiatus I was thinking of what blog post should I write about. And then, BOOM! I thought of one and it’s for high school seniors. For me, I did graduated high school about 8 years ago but I do remember alot of relevant tips during my senior year. I mean, I’m not that old to remember my high school years LOL. So, I’m going to share some high school tips for seniors and I hope you enjoy them *smiles*.


Tip #1: To get you ready for adulthood, take a home economics class at your school. In that class, you will learn how to fill out and pay for taxes, budgeting, home interior decorating, cooking, paying bills, loans, checks and etc. If your school doesn’t have this type of class, then go on Google and type in ‘home economics worksheets’ or go on the website Khan Academy, scroll down the site until you see ‘Economics & Finance’ and ‘College, careers, and more’, and letting you know, it’s absolutely free.

Tip #2: If you know what you want to do after you graduate high school, then starting finding some resources right now. If your school has an career center or has career fairs, then go before school or your during lunch period.

Tip #3: If you’re planning on taking your ACT or SAT test soon, start prepping right now. Sign up for practice SAT or ACT prep testing after school or go on Khan Academy.

Tip #4: Ask for help if you’re struggling with your academics, especially if you have an learning disability. And you shouldn’t care what your classmates say about your education. At least, you’re paying attention and trying to understand the material.

Tip #5: If there’s a scholarship you want, then follow the requirements on submitting for a scholarship. And while you’re waiting, just focus on your studies.


Well, those are all of my tips for high school seniors.

Thank you for reading *smiles*

Favorite YASS Ma’am/Inspiring Twitter Quotes [Part 1]

Hi fellow readers! I’m Shabria and welcome to my blog *virtual hugs*

So, when I’m not coming up with a new blog post or writing one. I’m on twitter, tweeting or retweeting, which I’m sort of active on besides Instagram or Youtube. So, majority of my twitter timeline, it’s tweets that I can relate and that gives me that ‘yass ma’am’ moment. And I want to share them with you and I will definitely leave their twitter handles, so you can follow them if you want.
