Summer between junior and senior year: sleep till noon, hang out with friends

Senior year:

Plan A:

October-December: score as low as possible on the SATs, ask other people where to apply, write poor essays, miss as many deadlines as possible

January: take a deserved rest

February-March: complain about anxiety, while waiting for colleges’ application decisions

April: sink in depression over the rejection letters you have received

May: spend a lot of money and time on buying clothes and jewelry for the prom

Summer: take a deserved rest – sleep till noon, hang out with friends and take very short spells of daydreaming about your year off

Plan B:

October-December: breathe easily while the others are having a hard time taking exams and applying

January: make up your mind to start reading books

February-March: listen to your friends’ complaints and be happy about making the wisest and bravest decision in your life – to take a year off

April: worry a bit about the prospect of receiving rejection letters next spring and calm down by remembering you have made the best decision

May: spend a lot of money and time on buying clothes and jewelry for the prom

Summer: take a deserved rest – sleep till noon, hang out with friends and take very short spells of daydreaming about your year off
