What should every freshman at your school know before they start?


I would tell my past self that that the teachers and my mom were not kidding when they said studying would be beneficial. It doesn't hurt. Do not wait until the last minute to study for a test. Cramming does little to no good and by the time you take your test, you've lost all the information you stuffed inside your head quickly the night before. Instead of cramming, study a little bit every other day and especially the night before the exam. Don't stay up all night. Sleep is good. Breakfast is also helpful. It wakes you up and keeps you focussed. It's almost like magic! I'm never a big breakfast eater, but if I can, I will at least eat a piece of toast. Anything is better than nothing for remembering information better. So: sleep, breakfast, and not cramming at the last minute, are the pieces of advice I would give my highschool self if I could go back in time. Also, relax. Just chill. Don't stress out. Keep your cool and everything will turn out all right.
