compilation of some tips and tricks that’ll help you survive hell school!!!!!! *screams*
if ur getting a hair cut, get a stylish one a couple weeks before school starts; that way, it can grow in a bit. also be sure to tell your hair dresser exactly what you want at the salon, bring photos of the perfect hair cut for reference!!! reason: if ur hair gets screwed up it’ll have some time to grow in b4 school starts
rinse in cold water b4 u get out of the shower, it’ll make ur pores close so ur skin will look soft+healthy! hot water dries out ur skin! this is an important tip bc soon you’ll get used to cold water! so if u ever need to dive into the pacific ocean to save a person u can do it without shivering+look badass
as an added note sometimes ur eyes are gonna be puffy in the morning (bc of essays u wrote last minute… don’t procrastinate guys) so throw some cold water on them!!
okay i know u hate it when people are like “u should go to sleep + have a decent sleep cycle!!” but if u go to bed at the same time every night u’ll feel better AND look better so HAH TIFFANY i win i look better than u (oh and if someone comments on ur eye bags just scoff and say they’re gucci)
eat breakfast. ramen doesn’t count. eat like a banana or something and pretend its a dick bc u get no action KIDDING DONT DO THAT EAT CEREAL bc ur a serial killer hahah get it. +if u eat breakfast u’ll have energy to slaughter ur enemies @ school ofc
dry lips? stop picking at the dry skin and use vaseline or chapstick! buy generic brand if u don’t want to burn a whole through your wallet, they work just as well as name brands
turn off ya phone b4 u go to bed. it’ll keep u awake and u won’t get ur beauty sleep! ur a princess, treat urself like one
chew gum when studying, then chew the same flavor gum when taking the test u were studying for. it’ll help u remember info
treat yo self. have a relaxing bubble bath after a stressful day! put on soothing music and chill! go all the way and make a sugar scrub if u want to have smooth legs! 1 part oil (any kind, try canola) to 2 parts sugar will make a cheap scrub; mix well, & after u shave, rub it all over ur legs with a loofa- voila, u have the smoothest legs in the valley! feel free to force ur friends to feel ur new, buttery-soft legs
don’t sit down and study for 4 hours straight- study in 20-50 minute increments, switch between subjects+take breaks in-between. if u need to listen to music, listen to video-game background music- do NOT listen to music with words! but if it helps u study, listen to music with words that aren’t in a language u speak
drink water. guzzle that shit! u’ll be healthy and won’t collapse from dehydration.
do. not. put off doing homework, projects, etc. seriously. this isn’t elementary school anymore. you need good grades to get a good job, to get money, to get the shit u wanna buy. study study study! review material even if u don’t have a test coming up
try not to copy ur friend’s homework; u won’t retain/learn a lot, but if ur math teacher gave u 14 pages of trig and u have to write 23 essays, then go ahead- but don’t make it a habit.
if u need info for an essay/project/etc, use scholar.google instead of plain ol’ google- you’ll get more relevant info!
take a picture of ur class schedule and put it as ur lock screen! that way if u lose ur physical copy u ain’t screwed
send ur essay to a friend to proofread! if u don’t have any friends then copy and paste it into google translate- u can listen to ur mistakes and failings more easily so u can correct them and become a better person
It’s always a magical mail day when you get to see one of your stories on the page. Peter Sheehan’s illustrations are so ridiculously perfect I got goosebumps. I want to HUG these paintings. (If you want to see the rest, you’ll have to find a copy of the November issue of Touchdown.)
