 by Ken Abrahams

Tips for high school seniors:

  • Enjoy graduation and spending time with friends.
  • If you are going on to college, similar to high school, you will be the new kid on the block.  
  • The great thing is that there are a lot of others in the same boat.
  • Ask for help when you need it.
  • Getting separation from your parents is not a bad thing.
  • At the same time make sure to communicate with your parents and other family members.
  • College is very different from high school you have more freedom but more is expected of you.
  • Learn to advocate for yourself.

Tips for seniors graduating from college:

  • Clean up your social media accounts.
  • Don’t bring you parents to a job interview.
  • Set up a LinkedIn profile.
  • Make sure that your resume is solid and without typos.
  • Do mock interviews.
  • If you can, get your parents to look at your resume.
  • Have fun.
  • You will not be a VP right out of college.
  • When interviewing for a job remember that you are interviewing them as much as they are you.

Tips for parents:

  • Give your kids some room to breathe.
  • Let them advocate for themselves.
  • Make sure to discuss holidays well in advance and make sure your kids understand your expectations.
  • Let your kids figure out how to navigate colleges and new jobs.
  • Don’t set up interviews for your kids and never sit in on job interviews.
  • Enjoy this time in your kids lives.

Meet Heather 

Program Specialist

What do you do at FUN?  Mostly I work one of our fun (no pun intended) Photo Programs. Sometimes I assume the position of DIY Queen, or Arts and Craft Master. Sometimes I'll be a Face Painter, Paint Night Instructor, or Henna Tattoo Artist!

Something you would like to share about yourself: When I'm not working, I normally spend my time cooking, building something, or playing with my fur baby. I love taking cool portrait photos with friends. Or you'll find me on a mountain top or gripping a rock wall.

Our very own AC Anders will be an Art Judge at the 5th annual

Foxborough Street Painting Festival

at Patriot Place on Saturday, May 18: 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM.

Traveling man...

I had a nice drive to Illinois a couple of weeks ago to visit Lakeland College. While I was there doing FUN’s Antique Photo program, I had the opportunity to enjoy the excellent weather and do one of my favorite activities.  I went to a local golf course with a driving range and spent a couple of hours working on my golf game. I enjoyed the hell out of it, only one problem, I stretched a tendon, and they say you can’t get injured in golf.

HAPPY SPRING.

Answer box:

Trivia: Rhaegar Targaryen because he kidnapped Lyanna Stark.

While Robert is visiting Winterfell, he visits the memorial of Lyanna Stark located down in the crypts. Lyanna, Ned Stark's sister, was promised to Robert before she was kidnapped by Rhaegar Targaryen. Robert started the rebellion because she was taken from him. Fans of the show will notice hints that Lyanna was not actually kidnapped, but she ran away to be with Rhaegar.
