Another one of Geekinite's rants:

So, you know that feeling when you start a new school year?

You wake up extra early to look 1057% perfect, all of your stuff is ready and organized, you walk through the front doors with a smile as you greet all of the friends you haven’t seen in a while, you try to give the teachers a good impression, you genuinely feel confident that this school year is the going to be great.

Time flies by, and before you realize, it’s January. You’re just about halfway through the school year. You sleep in, leave things at home, you don’t give a crap about what you look like, it seems like the teachers just pile on the homework, you find out your class ranking and you feel like shit about your grades, so you try a little harder. But it only seems to get worse.

You begin to think like a direct tv ad… “If you don’t get good grades, you won’t get into college, if you don’t get into college you won’t have a good job, if you don’t have a good job you won’t have much money, if you don’t have much money you won’t be able to take care of your family….etc…etc..” somehow that manages to lead to YOU WILL DIE! And all of that stress piles on and it just makes your grades worse…there is no escape.

Well, if you get mostly B’s (like me) you are still better than the set “average” grade, (which is a C). Don’t beat yourself up about grades! Its just a number, and that is NOT what you are. You are a breathing, thinking creature. You DO NOT need to be defined by a number!

Archimedes never went to school! And he is considered one of the most important geniuses in the history of geniuses! You will do great if you do what YOU can, not what that straight A perfectionist in your grade (*cough timelorddetectivewizard221b cough*) can do.

FUCK GRADES. YOU ARE INTELLIGENT AND DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU OTHERWISE.
DON’T STRESS OVER HOMEWORK AND GRADES (but don’t entirely give up on them) YOUR MENTAL HEALTH IS MORE IMPORTANT!

-Reblog to spread the word to every student suffering from end of the year stress, it’s a real thing, and it sucks…

Love you all

So I finished out my first semester at university with, I think, a 2.99 GPA, but I need at least a 3.25 by the end of the school year to keep one of my scholarships. Is there any way I can raise my current GPA in such a short amount of time?

It won’t be easy, but it’s doable.

You’ll need to make at least a 3.51 this semester. That means making A’s and B’s in all of your classes (mostly A’s). The fewer credit hours you take, the higher grade per class you need. Especially if your college doesn’t use the plus/minus scale. Here is a GPA calculator.

You’re going to have to work hard, be disciplined, and stay focused.

Here’s some study tips to help you stay on track in the Spring semester:
