Sleepy Students

Sleepy Students

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #9 Sleep Like I said previously, your health needs attention, and rest is a part of that. Our brains don’t work as hard when sleep deprived – the body needs time to reboot and rejuvenate. Between last minute papers, social life, and work, I know it’ll be hard to incorporate sleep into your schedule. But I can’t stress enough how important it is to get as much rest as possible. Whether that’s at the “right…

The College Menu

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #8 Don’t Forget to Feed Your Body Its cliché but nourishing your body to learn really does make a difference. School can get busy, along with the rest of life. But don’t forget that your health needs attention as well. Your brain doesn’t function at its finest if its preoccupied with restlessness or hunger. So, to keep your body feed is really important. I should point out though that Doritos, Mountain Dew, and Poptarts will…

A Heavier Work Load

A Heavier Work Load

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #7 Prepare for the work load When they tell you in high school that the work load will be heavier in college, they aren’t joking, haha. You’ll want to be prepared for long papers; there’s no more 1/2 pages crap from high school unless you’re lucky! Don’t be discouraged though! I’ve come to realize that it’s not so much more homework per say, its more detailed and larger assignments or projects. Therefore, don’t be too…

Community Atmosphere

Community Atmosphere

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #6. Prepare for the atmosphere The atmosphere at community college is different than campus-living college; in a sense that you won’t be surrounded by students and classmates 24/7. At community college when you go home, you’re not in a school environment anymore, and you’re not surrounded by other students who need to get school work done as well. And since the outside environment is different, you must be able to focus on your own. To…

A Decision

A Decision

Lately, my mind has been overwhelmed with confusion. Two paths lie in front of me and I don’t know which path to take. Both have challenging obstacles blocking the road ahead. It doesn’t feel like any outcome is favorable, yet I have to choose because the pain of staying silent is becoming too much. My head space has been flooded, my concentration shattered, my heart divided, my sanity ruptured, my future called into question…and all I want to do is…

Skipping

Skipping

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #4. Don’t skip class You’re paying for these classes – skipping a class is like throwing $money$ out the window. And if you can throw money out the window, you’re either stupid or stupid rich, haha. Plus, you may miss something important, you never know when the teacher may mention something significant to an exam, or randomly give extra credit points for showing up. (which isn’t common but yes, I had a teacher one time…

Schedule work and school first

Schedule work and school first

Grace’s Declassified School Survival Guide #3. Schedule work and school first! Make a calendar/schedule for school assignments and keep up with it! Something I found helpful for myself was to not just write down due dates, but also plan ahead and write down dates ahead of time for when I should start an assignment or project. Therefore, if I forget to check my calendar or forget to look ahead in my schedule, I don’t run into the problem of missing…
