Fun Repurposing Projects for Those Old Blinds

No room is complete without the right blinds! But, that doesn’t mean the same set of blinds will look right at home in your living room until the end…

I was recently listening to two of my girlfriends who each have older children chat about the college admissions pressure that their kids were going through. I heard the expected comments around grades and test scores and extra curriculars, but then I heard some things that shocked me - including that the discussion around college started after eighth grade.

I want to be clear here: I don't believe I ever spoke with my guidance counselor in high school about college stuff, and now eighth graders are expected to start meeting with counselors to put them on a college track earlier in life.


I listened as my friends described the pressure, the roller coaster of emotions for their children and themselves and it was all summed up with this one sentence: None of it is fair.

That is very, very true. As this long-form article about what colleges are saying that they want from an applicant (at the moment) there is no one-and-done formula to figure out or fix the admissions process. And from what my friends are saying, college is now becoming a years-long research project before your child ever gets into high school.

I look at my son now with his wide variety of interests and can't picture asking him to make a major decision about his life at such an early age. Will this process get better before my son has to go through it? I don't know...but like all parents, I know I will be there for him when he needs me.

What help did you give your teen going through the college admissions process? Tell me in the comments.
