The Jordan Insurance Group, MD, GraduationGraduation is quickly approaching and you couldn’t be more excited. You can finally move on with your life and get into the real world. However, whether you are graduating from high school or college, there is still a lot of work to be done. Here’s your unofficial to-do list to ensure you are prepared for your graduation. 1. Order cap and gown. This is only the most important part of your high school or college graduation ensemble, so if you haven’t ordered yours yet, you better get on it. If the deadline hasn’t passed already, it is surely right around the corner. And if it has passed, well, you better break out your best groveling techniques. 2. Send out invitations. Yes, it seems like a lot of work, but you will likely be paid back tenfold for your efforts. When most people receive a college or high school graduation invitation in the mail, the next thing they do is take out the checkbook. If you want a cheaper option than the invitations your school offers, there are plenty of sites online that will make a simple postcard version for you (saves you on postage, too!). Just make sure they are sent out at least two weeks before the big day. 3. Don’t forget about your studies. It is way too easy to get so wrapped up in the excitement of graduation that you let your schoolwork slip. But, please, do not let this happen. Just because you have been accepted to college already, or have your first real job lined up, that doesn’t mean the decision can’t be revoked. 4. Plan your party. You worked hard for this achievement, and you better celebrate. However, you want to coordinate dates with your friends so you don’t all have your parties at the same time. Or better yet, have a combined celebration to save some dough for your future. 5. Schedule your summer. Once your graduation is over, real life begins. Whether that means preparing for college or gearing up for your first day on the job, you better take your time seriously. Sure, you can relax for a week to celebrate your freedom, but then you need to put your feet to the pavement and get to work. It’s only your future at stake. Content provided by Transformer Marketing.
