School can be very difficult and stressful, but if you have a guide and some tips and tricks along the way, it becomes easier and less stressful. In this article, I share with you my tips and tricks on being a great student!

- Use a planner!!!! I cannot stress this enough! I know all of your teachers probably tell you this (at least mine do haha) AND THEY TELL YOU IT FOR A REASON!!! Use. A. Planner. Planners are so important because if you write down all your homework, you know you won't forget to do any of it! Simple as that. My school provides planners for their students, but if your school doesn't provide them, you could always buy them! You don't have to get the most expensive and prettiest planner, there are a lot of planners that work just as well, and for half the price! I could do another article about different types of planners and how to choose the best one for you!

- STUDY! Okay, this one sounds so basic and stupid, but there are so many people who don't study! In middle school, you might be able to slide by with not studying, but in high school, I guarantee you that you won't! Studying is so important and I only realized it in the end of my freshman year! Find out what studying method works best for you!

- Participate in clubs! This is very important for people who don't participate in anything outside of school, and even if you do, it could still help you a lot! The more you participate in, the better your resume looks!

- Be actively learning in class!! Take notes when the teacher is talking, make sure you copy everything down. You really want to get the concept. Also, don't focus on making your notes pretty in class, because that takes up a time to be taking notes, and chances are you might miss some. Instead, take down all the notes, and then go home and make them look as pretty as you want.

Here are some quick tips I have for you guys :)

- If you are too lazy to hand make a bullet journal set up such as a water log or any kind of tracker, USE PRINTABLES!!! Yeah, you heard me right! People actually make bullet journal spreadsheets for people like you to use!

- Also, if you don't want to buy a calender or make your own essay planner, emmastudies and more blogs on Tumblr have FREE printables! They help a lot :)

- Go to office hours, they really help!

- Get apps such as quizlet and socratic.

Those are all my tips for you :) Hope you guys benefited from it !! Message me what you want me to write about next!
