When I was in sixth grade, I always seemed to struggle with time management. And for the first few months of sixth grade, every class I go to, I would be tardy. I was often late to my first class of the day, so as a result I had to wake up early, eat fast, etc. Time flies and 10 minutes could pass by in the blink of an eye. Some good advice would be to give yourself more time than you think you’ll need, otherwise you’ll put yourself in the situation or frantically opening your lock, taking out your materials, and busting into the classroom door like an FBI agent.
Chances are we all know what the definition of organization is. However, people don’t tend to pay attention to it, so always keep organized to save time. For example, if you’re just gonna stuff in a random paper there “just once” to “save time”, well guess what, It’s literally just gonna waste your future time. It’s like saying “I’ll complete this later”, then not doing it for an entire week or so, leaving a stack of papers to complete. The majority of people have already have been in one of these situations before. So, keep yourself organized or you’ll go through the mess I’ve gone through.
Whenever you are choosing your electives for your next school year, you need to think about if it’s a class you’ll enjoy. Just because the teacher states you’ll be able to go to Disneyland or you’ll get a lot of pizza and donuts doesn’t mean you should sign up. And most of the time that simply affects you in the short term. Think about the long-term effect before deciding. For 8th grade I selected choir for one of my electives, and quarantine for me especially ruined it. No field trips. And plus, singing at home is kind of annoying. I find doing it in person is kind of better in a sense.
Try to grasp onto your weaker subjects as wasting time working on your strengths isn’t gonna help your weaker subjects in any way.
Google. You’ve definitely heard of it at least once in your lifetime. If you’ve never heard of it, seems like you’re living under a rock. Except for Wikipedia, which teachers despise, and fake information to go along with it, otherwise, Google is a great source, especially for finding definitions of words and that kind of stuff.
Don’t stay up at night, for obvious reasons, staying up is in no way gonna do justice for your mental well-being. Staying up late will result in a bad spirit the next day. You won’t be able to concentrate and you’ll have trouble interpreting what teachers are trying to say.
Whenever you get tired, take a break. Sip some water, munch on a cookie, anything that helps you. No matter how hard you study something without taking a break, those hours spent studying are simply going to do more harm than good.
So imagine doing a test, and not quite knowing a problem, so you spend 10-20 minutes working on it, trying your best to figure it out since you could have sworn you knew how to do the problem. Wait. There are 10 more problems until you can complete the test, and maybe the best idea would be to finish the other 10 problems and leave one incomplete than to leave 10 incomplete and complete that one problem you kind of struggled on. And if you couldn’t tell, the first choice is more ideal, one incomplete problem is better than 10 problems.
To some people reading might just seem like a more healthy version of television. Reading does in fact help your writing, as it helps with vocabulary and such.
This pretty much applies everywhere, but social skills are very important. If you have bad social skills, it’s gonna be hard to communicate. Another thing is that you’ll feel very lonely and left out.
