Congratulations, graduates! With lots of hard work, you did it!
Whether you’re graduating from high school or college, our residents at American House Senior Living Communities wanted to share some of their wisdom with you, to help you along your next journey in life! They’ve seen a lot and have tons of life experiences to guide you.
Here’s some advice our residents would like to share withnew graduates:
“It’s a big world and it’s rough — get a good education and put your best foot forward. Stay ahead of the crowd.” -Mary Kay
Great life advice! No matter what situation you’re in, do your best and work hard to be the best YOU possible.
“If you graduate from high school and have good grades, go to college. If you don’t have good grades, learn one of the trades or go to vocational school.” -Aileen
It’s always a good idea to have a plan for your life after school.
“Always be true to your friends, because they’ll be with you for a long time.” –Rita Boyer
Your friends may just seem like someone to hang out with now, but over time, they’ll become so much more: A support system, family, networking unit, advice-givers, vacation buddies, parenting friends…the list is endless! Be good to them and they’ll be good to you.
“Go to college and become a professional now so you’ll have money when you retire.” –Elaine Meyer
Take it from someone who’s been there: Planning a way to have funds down the line means you can retire comfortably and won’t have to spend your golden years working too hard.
“Study.” –Claudia Daugustino
Isn’t that the key to success? Study: Not only for good grades, but because you want to learn a plethora of information that will guide you through your professional career – and life in general.
“You have a whole new life ahead of you – live, love, laugh and enjoy it.” –Jessie Fields
Don’t forget to take some time to stop and smell the roses! After all, what good is being in the “real world” if you can’t enjoy what you’ve earned?
