Make S.M.A.R.T. Goals and Reach Your Dreams

Posted by Jade

Today I want to tell you about making S.M.A.R.T. goals and staying true to your dreams. It sounds a lot like staying focused. It is—focused on yourself. That is something a lot of teenagers and young adults either aren’t comfortable with, or have yet to realize the importance of.


My dream and goal is to become a counselor at the college level. My journey hasn’t always been smooth; there have been some bumps in the road making me question myself. But you can’t let life get you down, you must keep fighting! The first step is to make S.M.A.R.T. goals that are:


Specific (Who, What, Where, When, Why?)

Measurable (Track progress, reach target dates etc.)

Attainable (You’re both willing and able to work toward it)

Realistic (Goals are wise, reasonable, and important to you)

Timely (Grounded within a time frame)


If your goals are S.M.A.R.T. and your dreams are realistic, please stay on task. Don’t let a few bumps deter you from your destiny. Nothing in life is easy and sometimes, your dreams are worth struggling for. Keep that in mind the next time you’re faced with the seemingly “impossible”…and Happy Holidays!


Senior Year Opportunities: Dont Waste Your Time

Posted by Arzoo

Senior year can be one of the most stressful but memorable times of our lives. From applying to different colleges, maintaining high grades to senior events, it is one hectic year. Utilizing our time to organize and refresh ourselves can be achieved through breaks such as winter or spring breaks. This is a time where you can think about organizing your summer into a productive one. You can look for different volunteering opportunities around your community. Or use this time as an opportunity to look into the different clubs, organizations or sororities you plan on joining. Extra time like these breaks can help balance out the stress, so use your time wisely.


For Middle Schoolers!

Posted by Evelyn

When I was in middle school, I know I wasn’t interested in college yet. I just saw it as the next step after high school so it wasn’t really something that I thought about. But, I’m here to tell you that it is never too early to start thinking about it! I know it seems so far away, but high school goes by really fast and before you know it you’re applying to colleges. You may think you’re too young to start preparing, but that’s not true. Here are some things you can start:


  • Volunteer! Some places may need you to be a certain age but you can definitely find a list of places that you can start helping out at your age. Volunteering will also help you during high school so it’s always good to start a habit early.
  • Read! Reading a lot of good quality books will help you become a better writer for high school as well as when you start writing your college essays.
  • Do your homework on time! Making sure you don’t procrastinate and do homework on time will help you be successful in high school and college.
  • Visit a college campus! Seeing a college will help you start thinking about what it is like.
