Have a Fabulous Summer!

Image result for out for summer

I hope you all have a super amazing summer!  All you juniors soon to be seniors, it is never to early to start looking for scholarships.  I have listed some scholarship websites for you to look through if the mood strikes you to get a head start before school starts in August.

Seniors, good luck in all you do and thanks for fantastic year.  It has been a pleasure working with you all.  (:

See you in August!

Schools Out! and Mushy Finds His Voice

Happy Weekend!  It has been a crazy-busy week in “scholarship land,” but so exciting to see the good things students are accomplishing.  You guys really are awesome and many of you are hard at work building your future lives.  I know a lot of you are overwhelmed, but it is such an exciting time in your life and you have so many great things ahead.

Keep working hard and stay motivated!  But enjoy your weekend and have some fun, too.  There are several fun overnight visits at colleges next weekend, so get registered for those if you’re interested.  You can find links here.

I’ll see you back at THS on Monday.  If you have any questions, come visit me in my office in the Counseling Center…and Go Buffs!

Schools Out! and Strangers are Friends You Have

Schools out for the next three days!  Have a great weekend, and use some of that extra time to work on your college and scholarship applications.  Or check out RMACAC at Juan Diego, today.  You will be able to visit with college reps from all over the country, and even a few from out of the country.

Whatever you decide to do, enjoy this beautiful fall weather!  I’ll see you next week.

Schools Out! and The Future Belongs to the Brave

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  I just wanted to pop in and share this video.  The woman in this video, Barb, is my daughter’s sister-in-law.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 28, and has spent the last two years fighting it.  She is a warrior!  She and her husband just released this video in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and there are lots of events and service projects that you can get involved with.  Good for college and scholarship applications, but more importantly, getting involved is good for you, your community, and your world.  Helping someone else always gives us perspective.

Another reason I wanted to share this video was because I know that many of you are feeling overwhelmed and scared right now.  There are a lot of changes ahead and sometimes that can feel unsettling.  I know some of you have regrets and feel like the future you want is impossible.  I thought this would be a great reminder of strength and courage and determination in facing what is ahead.  As you’re listening to the video, listen carefully to the words and choose a few lines that feel motivating to you.  Write them down and put them up where you can see them every single day.  When you start to falter, take a deep breath, read your phrases, and watch this video again.  Then, BE BRAVE!




Schools Out! and Free Tickets

ImagineDragonsINAUGWEBSMALLHappy weekend!  Have lots of fun, but save time to work on college and scholarship applications…and that includes homework and ACT prep!  You should also go to Weber State University’s Facebook page and enter to win free tickets to the Imagine Dragons concert + Fictionist.  And then you should give them to me!  You can find more information on the concert here.  (Fun fact:  some times my cousin plays percussion with Fictionist.)

Whatever you do, make it good.  I’ll see you back here when the bell rings Monday morning.

Schools Out! and Bohemian Gravity

To jump start your weekend, check out this geeky rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody.  McGill University Masters candidate Timothy Blaise composed and recorded an a capella version of Bohemian Rhapsody with physics-themed lyrics. He calls his creation Bohemian Gravity.  Enjoy!
