Attention! This is not an alarm! January 1st deadlines have officially come and gone! This means that you’re probably done with all of your college applications!!! YAY!!

This is an incredibly exciting time for all students entering the final stretch of their senior year. Think about all of the things you didn’t have time for before that you can now take part in wholeheartedly because there are no personal statements, supplemental essays, applications, interviews, or campus tours filling up your schedule! You can spend your time:

  • Scrapbooking
  • Organizing your closet
  • Building a dresser from IKEA
  • Learning how to knit
  • Seeing a movie in theaters
  • Catching up on all of your fave shows (thank you, Netflix!)
  • Eating an entire pint of ice cream by yourself
  • Planning a summer road trip
  • Learning another language
  • Reading a book for pleasure
  • Creating a playlist for your boo
  • Baking a cake
  • Ice Skating
  • Playing Clue with friends
  • Walking your dog in a pretty park
  • Indulging in a Sunday brunch
  • Taking a walking tour of your hometown
  • Seeing if you and your crush’s zodiac signs are compatible
  • Consuming an entire pizza in thirty minutes
  • Volunteering at an animal shelter
  • Listening to a new album
  • Paying your g-ma a long overdue visit
  • You get my drift

Now that you have free time again, take advantage of it! All that is left to do now anyway is wait! If you’re feeling restless, visit our Regular Decision Notification Date Organizer to find out when your top schools will be releasing admissions decisions. And don’t fret! Everything that can be done has been done (at least for now).

Sending admissions an email begging them to move your application to the top of the pile because you are such an eager beaver will not improve your chances. Drink some cocoa and listen to some funky tunes. The whole point of finishing your applications is enjoying the lack of college stress in your life. You have all of next year to stress about college, so enjoy your last semester of High School!
