It’s the holiday season and happiness and joy are in the air however this year, the high school class of 2016 is embracing a new feeling this winter. It’s the time of year when many colleges start to get back to us with the news of our possible acceptance, mailboxes have slowly become a warzone of letters from schools and holiday greeting cards and at times it can feel overwhelming. Waiting for that top school to get back to you can be nerve racking but fear not for life will go on. While this time of year may be stressful and I can certainly feel it taking its toll on me I remind myself and all of you readers in the class of 2016 to keep your chin up. It’s the holiday season and that means family is around and festivities are taking place, and while these little paper slips come through one by one to let you know your possible future you have a million other things to take your attention. Since this is possibly your (and my) last full holiday season at home take time to enjoy it fully, worrying about something that is already set in stone will get you nowhere. Take time to decorate your whole house with dazzling lights or even take up a winter sport for the first time. If winter activities aren’t your thing just kick back and relax and ease yourself with your usual activities. Lately I have been swimming a lot and re watching Doctor Who to distract myself and I have to say it has eased my soul a bit. Class of 2016, we made it this far so don’t overthink and always be happy.
