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.

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!):

PASS ON THE COLLEGE KNOWLEDGE.

I did a coloring demo tonight during art class. It was like a Livestream except a little more nerve-racking since they’re my classmates and they’re right THERE, haha. But as it went on I slowly relaxed and had a lot of fun answering questions. Honestly wouldn’t mind doing that again my public speaking needs a little work anyway and it helped me learn a lot on how to improve my coloring process.
During class I also finished several requests that I got from last night, so I’ll put that up tomorrow when I set up my scanner for my sketchbook.
How was your day so far?
