Draw all the time, whatever is around you - people, busses, flowers, grass, doorways, noodle bowls, rooflines, old shoes, interesting patterns, advertising graphics... It is so important to be able to grab a pencil and sketch six or seven ideas in a couple minutes. Consider that Degas said, "If you can't sketch a man falling out a fifth story window before he hits the ground, you will never create great art."
And don't spend too much time on technical construction drawings until you start studying building systems and CAD in school. You'll get more than enough of that in your first few years working. Better to get involved in some hands-on building work during your vacations in order to get to know how things get put together.
Most important - enjoy what you are doing!
