My last words for MCS

Joseph LeMasters, writer

I’m graduating high school so here are my final words to everyone and advice for seniors to come. It’s a big accomplishment to graduate highschool. It’s necessary for success (unless you get really lucky) so even though it’s hard sometimes to stick through it, it will be worth it. The question that everyone has been asking you since kindergarten is what will you do next. This is a hard question to answer. Most people have to no idea what they want to do with their lives, even as adults many people are unsatisfied with what they’re doing. You may feel pressure to go to college and get a high paying job like a doctor or lawyer. A lot of people do this and they end up unhappy with their job because it’s not what they enjoy doing or they drop out and take on a lot of debt. My advice for those who don’t know what they want to do is don’t go to college. Figure yourself out first, find out what you enjoy doing. Many people go to college just to get a degree that makes no difference in what job they’ll be doing. You don’t need to go to college to be successful. Who knows maybe what you want to do doesn’t require college. You should, however, pursue higher knowledge and skill in the subject you choose to pursue. A good thing to remember is that everyone has their own certain set of skills that can be used to better the world. In today’s social climate your group identity ( race, gender, etc) has taken priority over the individual. This is fundamentally wrong and has caused a lot of damage to our society especially to our generation. So remember this, you’re an individual with your own skillset. You can impact this world if you lead by example. The bible should be the cornerstone of your morals. If you keep God’s commandments, learn to speak well and with authority, you can truly make a difference.
