If you are a high school student with high grades getting ready to go to college in the next two years
And especially if you don’t even have to try to get exceptional grades and are prone to procrastination, perfectionism, or anxiety, then I have a tip that may really save your sanity: learn how to study now
A lot of high-intelligence students come to college and end up freaking out and getting really down on themselves because they don’t immediately get great grades. This is exceptionally applicable if you’re going into a tougher discipline: if you’re going into the sciences, medical, law, or anything of that nature, take heed!
The thing is, you’re not always going to be able to just sit down and know what’s up—and that’s okay. Having to put more effort into your education does not mean you’re less intelligent, and getting lower grades does not mean you’re a failure. It just means you’re doing more in-depth, more specialized, and less intuitive work.
If this applies to you, and you want to have some idea of where to start, under the cut I’ve added some tips and advice on studying, time management, and protecting your mental health (<—very important!):
CAUSE I SERIOUSLY NEEDED SOMETHING LIKE THIS WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU GUYS.
Don’t forget that drinking plenty of water and tea, eating a healthy diet and daily exercise will make a HUGE difference with your complexion. Touching your face frequently is also a big no-no. Everyone’s skin is different, so experiment with your own treatment routines and find what best suits you!! I think this is a topic that’s almost taboo to talk about, but everyone has it, so we might as well help each other out with what we’ve found successful, right!?
So here are a bunch of resources i’ve gathered. I thought that I’d share them because they’re really helpful. Hope they’ll make your life easier! I’ve never made one of these before, so let me know if any of the links aren’t working.

back to school masterpost!!!!
a lot of my friends are heading back to school really soon. so i thought it’d be nice to put together something for them. if you’re reading this, you’re going to be fine. everything will turn out okay!!!!! ^u^ you may not feel as ready as some of your classmates and that’s okay too!!! it doesn’t make you any less of a wonderful human being. school is terrifying sometimes and you can’t compare yourself to anyone else’s standards, ESPECIALLY when it comes to school. as small and helpless as you might feel in the face of that huge concrete institution, all you have to do is stick true to what makes you feel comfortable and safe, and let the first week back just roll over your shoulders. it’ll be over sooner than you think, i just know it. you’re very loved and will get through this!!!! ^o^
