Oregon Coast Appreciation Post

Oregon Coast Appreciation PostThis is one of my favorite places to be during the summer. 

The Oregon coast has been “my beach” growing up. It might not be the tropical island oasis everyone imagines when they first think of the beach, but it offers its own unique beauties.

To the Recent High School Graduate

Summer, summer, S U M M E R!  It’s HERE!

Congrats, you finished your final year of high school. It took four years to assemble this life milestone, which directs you now to hurdle into higher education. The college or university you’ve selected for your next chapter has many new and exciting memories awaiting, but before you embark on this journey, take some advice from a freshman year veteran.

Lucky for you, novice, this list comes directly from experience. I thought I knew what I was getting into when I was shipped off to college, but I was wide of the mark. You’ll find more out on your own than I can offer you from this simple ranking, but at least what I provide will be a good starting point.

This list of lessons isn’t meant to stress you out—because believe me, school will do that to you on its own—but rather help you adjust to the college life a little easier. I was really appreciative of the advice that I gained from friends prior to starting my freshman year, so I hope you finish reading this feeling like you gained something beneficial.
