7. Write a Letter to Your Future Self

At the very start of your senior year, write a letter to your future self to open on the day of your graduation. You'll be able to see how much you've grown and changed in just one short year.


8. Go to Basketball Games

The only time in your life that you'll be able to truly enjoy a high school basketball game is if you, too, are in high school. Sit in the bleachers with your besties and cheer on your school's team.


9. Sign Your Crush's Yearbook

Signing a yearbook may seem like the easiest thing in the world, but what if it's your crush's yearbook? And what if you let them know you've been crushing on them? That's the ultimate bucket list item to tick off!

11. Decorate Your Locker

Going to classes all day long isn't the most fun thing in the world. But what will make it a little bit better is by decorating your locker. You visit your locker multiple times throughout the day, so it might as well be a space you love.


12. Journal Once a Week

If you're new to journaling, we're not going to tell you to journal every day—that's just impractical. So, start out by journaling once a week and talk about what happened, how you're feeling, what you accomplished and more.


13. Make a Scrapbook

Scrapbooking can take a long time, but if you spread it out over the course of a year, it will feel like hardly any work. Throughout your senior year, update your scrapbook's pages with memorable moments, pictures, memorabilia and notes.

14. Ask Your Crush Out

Last but not least—ask your crush out! Chances are the two of you will be heading off to different colleges and won't see each other as often. So be confident and put yourself out there.
