I am 19-years-old and I live in NYC. My problem is that I'm still a H.S. senior and I'm scared of the future and the consequences of life ahead of me.
I'm waiting on June 2005 to take this, so-called "Regents test" in order to obtain my H.S. diploma. I'm scared if I don't pass I'm going to feel like a loser. And I'm worried because I need a good job in N.Y.C which is hard now.
Thank you for your time and for your advice,
Dear Senior Girl,
Now is not the time to be afraid of the Regents exams. You should have been preparing for it for the past four years. At this time I would suggest that you take a quickie course that will highlight some of the questions that may appear on the test. I am sure that your teacher can help you with that. Spend as much time and more time until the day of the exam and when it is scheduled do the best that you can.
Now that you have had this experience, remember it forever -- you don't get the results you want without working for it. So be prepared to work and study from now on.
