Seniors Give Advice
by The Milton Measure on Friday, June 8th, 2012In the midst of graduation season, seniors experience a variety of emotions, ranging from excitement to sorrow. Two seniors, Chris Fay and Karen Li, shared how they are feeling as their time at Milton comes to a close.
When asked to give advice to the grades to come, Chris says, “Take a minute to slow down. Your time here is going to fly by. Every now and then, you should make sure that what you’re doing reflects what you value and how you want to spend your brief years at Milton because, before you know it, you’ll be receiving an e-mail from a student asking you to answer questions similar to those asked of me.”
Karen advises, “Have fun and remember to relax, because ultimately, that C on your paper is not going to make a difference in the long run. And get as much sleep as possible during your upperclassman years — trust me, you’ll need it.”
So how should we make the most of Milton? “Don’t be too self-conscious; learn this lesson early on,” says Chris. “Go run through the freshman assembly with a Green man-butterfly-mix costume with police officers chasing you. It’s okay to make a fool out of yourself. In five years, you won’t remember that math test you took last week. You’ll instead remember those moments [where] you stepped out of your comfort zone; those will stick with you forever.”
“Yes,” Karen agrees. “Be reckless, be bold, but not too bold or reckless—that’s really all I can say; you need to have the best time here.”
