Top Ten Reasons to Finish Your Application
You can do it!! You can finish your college applications!! New years are a time for new beginnings, and in your case, THIS January 1st will mark the beginning of the year in which YOU will enter college! To help you power through to the end, we created this list of the top ten reasons why you should hit “submit.”
- The 2010s were the decade of Taylor Swift, Pokémon Go, Vine (RIP), Tik Tok, and avocado toast. Add "the decade of finishing your college applications" to that list and then focus on deciding what really was the #TwitterMomentoftheDecade.
- Did you know that the tradition of writing New Year's resolutions likely began around 4,000 years ago with the Babylonians? Though the tradition of writing and submitting college applications around the New Year isn't quite as old as that, you'll be able to carry this time-honored tradition forward once you’re finished.
- You’ll have more time to frantically search Amazon while trying to figure out where to buy Chris Evans’ fabulous white cable-knit sweater from Knives Out.
- Do it for him.
- Do you love it when they say the title of the movie in the movie? We do. Finishing your app will allow you ample research time to hear (fingers crossed) these gems: “How’s about we stop being little girls and become Little Women?” “Are you cold? Yeah, I’m Frozen 2.” “Foolish Jedi, don’t you know that It’s a Wonderful Life?”
- We know this upcoming decade will be called the twenties, but you can spend some quality time reflecting on this past one will be called. The teens? The ten-ties? Years 9 through 1 B.L. (before Lizzo)?
- Between Marriage Story and the honest-to-gosh final Star Wars movie, this is the perfect time of year to curl up with a cup of hot cocoa and watch Adam Driver get really angry about something.
- If cats can have “little a salami,” you can have “little a break” from your college apps for once.
- If you plan on sending in your college app using a carrier pigeon, you better move quick, pardner.
- Even though this whole process is plagued with uncertainty, and a lot of stress, and too many campus tours, and big decisions, there’s something magical about a beginning. And this is a beginning.
Best of luck with your remaining applications, and best wishes for the new year!
