1. It’ll get tough. Really f*cking tough. You already knew that. But that’s life, accept it. Put away the books for an hour, drink some tea, cuddle your pets, stare at the ceiling, watch some Youtube videos, and then finish your homework.

2. There will be a lot of days where you wanna quit or can’t get out of bed. Don’t call in sick and don’t drop out. You can do this, you can survive this year like all the others.

3. Enjoy learning new things. Knowledge is power, knowledge is sexy.

5. Be nice to teachers and help fellow students. Kindness makes life so much easier.

6. ASK THINGS. Ask the most stupid questions and ask the hardest. Just ask anything you want to know. Teachers think you’re dumb? F*ck them. Students laugh at you? Fuck them. YOU need to pass that class and YOU need that degree.

7. Make your lunch the evening before if you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. Breakfast helps you start up your day. If you don’t have time to eat at home, make some for in class.

8. Go to bed early. A good night’s rest is everything. It’ll make getting out of bed a lot easier.

9. Always carry a water bottle with you. ALWAYS.

10. Take a deep f*cking breath. It’s all going to be okay. Take a few steps back and look at your situation with a clear view. Realize how far you’ve come already. Be proud of yourself. Celebrate small victories. You are doing okay.
