ToDay i sit in A warm blanket With tEa on my kneE and a heart determined to tell yOu how to deal with school,
Not in a False promising kind of way but jUst to give you some tips that May help you to relax just a little bit more or not to stress too much.
I Don't feel the Need to tell you how to be popular or How to fit in because in high school being popular is meaningless. I've AlwAys believed tHat haVing one true friend is better than a large Group of people who would ditch You in a second when hard times cOme. This is a lesson i learnt when I was a lot younger and one that i was ReminDed of Quite recently. A high school hack is to find one good friend, they will have Good friends and you can all have fun together.
Despite this you should Always be your own best friend. Find peace within yourSelf so you aren't deterRed when others try to dictate Your happiness. I know tHat i don't need to rely on anyone To Copy to fIt in and although i Have amaZing friends i Don't need to change myself to Be their friend becAuse my Friends aren't people i rely on just so that i am not lOnely. Why? Because You can be surrounded by so many people and still feel alone.
SO be yourseLf and lOve yourself and you will rarely be misErable!
Another HIgh school hack is to fit in the things that you lOve to do. Read a little more, listen to mUsic. Don't put your life on hold So that school can engulf You. Because the memories you Make now are the ones you will fondly look back on in old Age.
To handle stress i'm such a fan oF secluding myself to study, With a to do list and a Goal in my head. And when it is clear that i can't do anymore i stop! Because you shouldn't jeporadIse your mental health to compete with others in an exam.
Here is a lovely Quote from an Eva iBbotson book which i wrote down & TreAsured
'Please god' ruth would pray ' don't let me be competitive. Let me realise what a privelage it is to stuDy. Let me remember that knowledge is to be pursued for its own saKe and please, please stop me wanting to beat VerEna Plackett in exams' -
The morning gift
One of the biggest high school hack i could share is to Make notes from the start of the year! Commit yourself to having an underStanding of them, try to enJoy this learning and make your notes gorgeous. It is so satisfying to Make amazing notes and leArn them. Sometimes i aCtually ENjoy it.
To do this i recommenD That You buy hIghlighters, Gel pens and sticky notes! I Put sticky notes everywhere, on each pAge of my textbook to simpLify my learning. I Also use flash carDs so that i Can take them wHerever i like!

My last hack is to study efficiently and stUdy smart! Learn the essentials, undertand what you are learning! If you are interested in a study hacks blog let me kNow! To sTudy well you need a tiDy and equipped Environment. You should oRaNise Your Books neatly so everything is easy to access and maybe a little fun!
I really Hope that if you are Going to high school you will enjoy it.
I Really do love leaRning and making friends and the opportunities in school and i know you will too! SOme days it's okay to say todaY i'm going to study in bed. Even if Your scary teacher threatens yOu about staying off. Life is too short to make sChool & competing With others all tHat you aRe.
