Back to school soon.. Oh wait I’m starting college! I recently moved to the United kingdom, so starting college in a new country is a whole new experience.
With college starting soon I was reflecting on how much I’ve learned since I started secondary school. There are so many things I wish I’d known from the beginning. And some of them took me much longer than they should have to figure out.
I decided the best thing I could do with this knowledge was to share it, especially if it meant that it could help someone else. I don’t pretend to have all the answers and much of this advice might seem obvious, but you never know it could actually help someone.
Start right away. Do you see all that homework growing after the first week? Yeah, that’s only going to get worse with time.
Make the most of your time. I probably accomplished more in the weekends than any other time. Being strategic about when you completed your school obligations, you don’t have to miss out on the other stuff you wanted to do.
Don’t isolate yourself. For shy people like myself, it’s too easy to let intimidation scare you away from social situations. If this is the case, please try to get out of your comfort zone every once in a while. I can’t think of a time I made myself get out there and truly regretted it.
Good luck for people that are starting school soon🌸!
