More Tips for teens. To be successful you have to make up your mind this early in the school year. I am sharing more heartfelt tips to help you mentally prepare for this school year.
To Your Success

1. Starting your day, month, year with a positive attitude is always very helpful and good for you. Don't just however, start with a positive attitude, keep that attitude throughout the year;it's helpful to your friends and teachers. Also, you'll be more efficient and the year will seem to fly by. Positivity will also help with getting all your work done."

2."remember to Stay organized. School can be frustrating when you're getting a lot of work and papers,so the easiest way not to get stressed is by keeping everything organized. Make sure to have a separate binder for each class and HOMEWORK TRACKING, it will make life bearable in high school."

3. "If you're absent for a few days, make sure to get the work you missed and take an excuse note to school. Your teacher is the best one to get you caught up and to explain things to you, because he or she is the expert in the class – not your friends. "

4. Drama, drama drama. !!!"Stay away from the drama. The only bad thing about school is the drama because so many people get sucked into it and it ends up making people feel awful. Yes, Drama can take your focus away from your work. If you don't completely focus on the lesson or your homework or even class work you won't understand what is going on. You'll be too focused on what is going on around you. So I recommend you stay away from drama."

5."DATING can be a hinder πŸ™€ it is said " If you are dating someone you may be completely focused on that person… which isn't a bad thing, but it isn't a good thing either. If you spend 24/7 with that person you'll probably get bored of him or her and not know what to talk about anymore. Which can get pretty awkward in the hallways. Also, if you don't spend any time with them then they will start to think that they aren't important or that you don't even like them. So maybe dating during school isn't the best thing for you academically but if it isn't affecting you by taking all your attention away from school then everything should be fine. Also, a lot of drama can come along with dating so you'd just have to be aware of that. I suggest not dating or dating but not giving it all your undivided attention, just some attention. Also, this can have an effect on your social life at school and you'll just ditch your friends which isn't what you want during school because they may ditch you when you need them. It is a very complicated life at school. What can I say, Just make the best out of it."
