Blog Special: Surviving High School

Welcome to another one of our ~blog specials~ 
 Since we know how tough it can be to settle into a new environment, new school and new peers, we are going to give you some handy tips on surviving High school.
Be on time!!

That means, be ready and out of the house 15 minutes before the school bell rings. Then make it to all your classes 2 minutes before the bell rings for class so that if you get lost, you have plenty of time to not be late.

 If it means you waking up at 6am every morning just to organize your bag, uniform, homework and your study area, then go for it. Organization is one of the most important skills your expected to learn in high school. Use your homework diary to record any given homework. Dont forget to record when the homework is due so you know when to hand it in. Make a home timetable so you can track what you do every day. This is very useful because it can help you to do everything at the right time. Know what equipment you should take to school each day for your lessons and prepare it the day before.

 Look after yourself!!!
 Feeling good is a big confident booster. So no matter what the weather, eat well and keep fit. Do things you love to do like joining a club that you will actually look forward to going to every week. Try and make lots of friends. Having a social life can help you look forward to school each day. Learn a few things from the right crowds. If you get interested in makeup, practice first at home on the weekend so you get used to it. so when there is a party at school, you will be more experienced and know what to do. It's the same with anything else you might be into. Practice makes perfect.



Make good trustworthy friends
Here at the latest, we love people who are friendly. Everybody has something to contribute to you. Don't sacrifice your grades, but have fun, both in school and out of it. For example find a group of friends that you can hang out with both in and out of school. High school is a time for you to also enjoy with friends! Sitting in a crowded cafeteria all alone can be the hardest part of being social. It's hard, if not impossible to get through high school happily and successfully without at least a few friends. Find people who you get along with - people who appreciate you for who you are, and who improve your overall life performance. These people will make you feel better about life, and help get you through school.

Here at the latest we are against any type of bullying and you should be too. The one thing that all you victims should put as your first priority, is to tell a trust worthy adult. DO NOT SURFER IN SILENCE. A good movie that we love here at the latest is called Cyber bully and it stars Emily Osment.

 Stay on your teachers' good sides. You don't have to be the teacher's pet, but neither do you need to spend a year avoiding a teacher who doesn't seem interested in helping you or who is rude to you. Try to make friends of teachers. After all, you never know when you may later need one of them to give you a letter of recommendation! Don't be afraid to ask them for help - asking for help is a sign of strength and maturity.

 High school is not like the movies. Everyone pretty much talks to everyone and the kids aren't as bad as they seem. But you can still get bullied, so be careful! We hope this post has atleast helped you in some way. One more thing you need to remember though, Keep a diary if you feel you have no one to talk to. It is very useful and will help you get better at your writing in school. so we just have to say, enjoy highschool!!
