End on a good note
Tis the season for Christmas, but also for finals. The end of the semester is always stressful with putting your life together and passing all your classes with A's or B's. I know it gets hard because we all just want break and a reviving fresh start for the new year and new seamster. The best way to end on a good note is to just keep trying. In the end everything you do counts, especially if you wish to aim for higher grades. Wrapping up the semester is important in order for you to move on to the next one. Put on your straight face and keep your chin up, we are almost there, and it will all be worth it in the end.
Let's gather the thanks
With thanksgiving around the corner it is imperative that we all prepare for the holiday season. Soon after turkey day, Christmas will arise and then it will be time for a New year. Thanksgiving is a time to appreciate all that has happened this year, and evaluate mistakes to learn from for the years following. Both the mistakes and the successes are equally important for the start of the new year. You live and you learn. Give thanks this Thanksgiving and prepare yourselves for 2019, you did it, 2019 will be it chief!
Can I talk to my ex?
With little experience in life to be honest, I might be wrong in this instance but in my opinion, yes you can talk to them. Being on speaking terms with someone is a good thing, mending whats broken and building a relationship can be healthy for both you and tour ex. If your with someone new, talk to them about this situation so that its not something that is hidden, I'm sure once y'all talk it through, your significant other won't mind as long as you or your ex aren't brining up past times, missing each other, or still have feelings for each other. In that instance, I recommend you don't talk to them because you have someone new, someone better, someone worth you time now, there is no reason to bring up the past in your future and create new problems, plus you have a new significant other. Talking to your ex is not a sin and it was bound to catch up to you sooner or later. But honestly you only live once so live your life to the fullest. But I will warn you to be cautious because you don't want to end up all alone.
High School Relationships
Cuffing season has hit. Everyone is cuddling up with their boyfriends or girlfriends and love seems endless between them. If you feel lonely, and as if you will never find someone to love, don't, it just takes time. Relationships in high school are difficult because were all growing individuals who are finding ourselves and our identities and preparing for the real world. You only live once so I say go for it if you both really like each other, high school is supposed to be the time of your life. Live while your young, but also give yourself room to grow as an individual. Live in the moment and don't count on the future because whatever ends up happening happens and just try to keep everything modest.
Balancing school work
Balancing school with other aspects of your life can always be difficult. The easiest way to balnece everything out is to manage your time. Create a to do list and set times for each thing needed to be completed.For example, say that when you come home you'll dedicate 2 hours to homework and when you finish you can watch Netflix. When you set up a. goal with a reward at the end it makes you motivated to actually do things on time. Another important thing to have is a calendar to visually see all of the dates you have for school and outside of school. Just keeping everything organized and figuring out your own ways to pace yourself will lead you to balance your life out the way you want it.
what is the best way to study to get a good grade on a test and really learn the material? I want to shoot for at least a 90 but the class is so hard.
Everyone has different styles when it comes to studying that works for them personally. I'd try different ways to study while quizzing yourself that way you are studying for the test but finding a beneficial way that works for you. It is always good to have a goal, its even better if you write them down. My study habits before a test consist of reading over ALL notes taken in class, even if it was from the last unit. Tests can be accumulative so its always a good idea to review. Look over all handouts given to you from the teacher, review any power points the teacher may have posted or shared with you. Any material given can potentially be a question on the test so its essential to pay attention in class for key review points your teacher may provide. I wish you the best of luck! <3
I eat way too many candies throughout the day, do you know a way to stop this bad habit?
Everyone has bad habits, mine personally is chewing ice. I have gotten better with not chewing it but its just a natural habit I have formed. As for you candy eating habit goes, I recommend trying to replace the candy with another food you like to eat. Maybe replace it with fruit or veggies. Every time you get the urge to eat candy, grab that alternative food. Sooner or later the habit will fade and you wont even realize it!
Problem: "I get nervous when I have to talk in big groups but it’s something I’m constantly having to do, do you have any ideas how I can be comfortable speaking to others and large groups!"
Response: We all get nervous! its okay! The key is confidence, I am aware that's easier said then done, but if you are confident and prepared to speak to these groups then they have no reason to doubt you! Always practice a few times with some friends just to get comfortable and memorize some of the info you are presenting. A big thing that scares people is looking into the crowd you are talking too. This can be conquered by picking a few people spread out throughout the room and just move from one person to the next while presenting. Don't stare them down or look at them for to long though because it can get creepy, but if picking people is not an option then pick spots on the wall close to eye level with your audience. Yes, I'm telling you to talk to a wall, but the crowd is listening and you'll ace your presentation.
For the better
People always tend to say "change for the better." That's not true in my opinion. You shouldn't change who you are for anyone or anything. Changing into a different person and growing into the better person you can be up are totally different. When you grow, you learn from your mistakes and pick yourself and become wiser.
Here's where the advice all comes together!!
