I started this series back in 2011! Didn't really keep up with it because I was too busy living my post-high school grad life. I wanted to and still want to continue with this blog and this series because I think it's important for current high schoolers and recent high schools grads to know that they have more than one option for their future. I was so excited to start this project that I jumped head in first without a proper introduction. So I'm reintroducing this in a proper way.
I'd say the number one thing to do after high school is to continue your education. There are a million roads to take, but all of them should and unmistakably involves education. Whether sitting in a classroom, emailing a professor on an online course, reading in the public library about a subject that intrigues you, or traveling to another country volunteering for a cause... all of these include education. Education can be in the traditional sense or it can be non-traditional. Stay tuned for more posts in this series.
