Teenie Skepchick Tips for School
School is coming up, like it or not. So here are a few Teenie Skepchick tips for school:
Go buy a 2008-2009 planner and write down everything you need to do throughout the year. Have your sports practices, homework, scheduled study time, long-term projects/goals, and tests/quizzes scheduled in that one planner.
For optimal performance in the classroom, you should be a week ahead of the class material by reviewing future chapters.
Each week, plan ahead (I do this on Sunday mornings) so that you have a daily “to-do” list ready for each day. Then stick to the lists!
Binders and dividers rock! Stay as organized as possible in each class. DO NOT just shove things into your book bag. <Cough> Like I used to do… <Cough>
If you have an ID badge get in the habit of putting it in the same place everyday.
Eat healthy, exercise, and get plenty of sleep. By doing this your brain will function more efficiently and you are more likely to effectively manage your stress level.
Lay your cloths out at night, including any sports gear you might need for practice or games.
If you have not read your summer reading by now, read it! And I don’t care what your teacher says; Spark Notes is a good study tool. Get an outline for the books if they are available.
Personally, I do not find drinking parties to be that much fun. I have also had too many friends get themselves into trouble and they have caused me to fear for their safety. If you decide to attend one of these functions, at least go with trusted friends and make sure you have a safe way of getting home. If you can, try to see that your friends don’t do anything they might regret while drinking. But most of all, keep yourself safe.
If anyone has any more tips to add to the list, please comment!
As some of you know or may have guessed, this year is my senior year. I feel a strange mixture of emotions about it. I’m excited. I’m a little sad. I’m a little anxious…
Here are some things that I am looking forward to in my final year of high school:
- My classes
- My cohort (friends) and their daily antics.
- Soccer season
- Swimming season
- Driving to school… everyday!
- Laughing at freshmen
What are you looking forward to this year?
Things I am not looking forward to this year:
- Dealing with incompetence and irrational behavior.
- Teenage drama. I mean really, the world has huge problems, and all some people care about is minor social issues among their small little pack of friends.
