High School Advice #10 - Do your BEST!! Guest post by Taylor Lavati @taylorjaneeeee, author of The Thousand Year Curse

Time for another guest post :)  This one comes to you from Taylor Lavati, the author of The Thousand Year Curse.

Onto her post and words of wisdom to share:

If I learned one thing from high school it’s that I didn’t try nearly enough. I skated by my classes, was an average athlete and had a normal social life, but I could have done so much more. I never really had anyone push me to excel until I was in college where my academic life was rocked on it’s side.

Looking back, I wish that I had tried harder in sports and in class. I could have gotten better grades or made captain but I chose not to. I think what held me back was a lack of motivation. If I was able to pass a class by not studying then that was okay for me and I could focus elsewhere. 

Time goes by way too fast and you can never get a rewind or a redo. Just this summer has gone by in a flash and it’s already August! I think when I was in high school I was always telling myself, tomorrow I’ll study or tomorrow I’ll spend extra time working out. But tomorrow came and went and nothing happened.

Before I knew it high school was over and I was in the same place I was the day, month or year before. Don’t get me wrong, high school was great for me. I honestly loved high school but thinking back, I don’t even know what I did back then. I just drifted by and never really got a chance to discover myself until I went to college. 

About the Author:  I am a twenty-two year old student. I study Early Childhood Education. I am an author, a reader and avid blogger. I enjoy everything that has to do with literature. My favorite genres are fantasy, paranormal, young adult, and romance.

I am from a small town in Connecticut, called Ridgefield. I graduated from Ridgefield High School in 2009. I danced in the Ridgefield Studio of Performing Arts dance company and played on the Varsity Girls Ice Hockey Team.

I enjoy being outside, whether it be hiking, swimming, playing sports or just sunbathing. My flat coated retriever Beau loves to be walked by myself and my boyfriend, Chris.

I am the author of, The Curse Books series. The Thousand Year Curse is the first in the installment and will be out this August. I also operate a book review website and really enjoy that.
