I really should use the positive mindset and speaking positivley next year because i have a tendency to get overwhelmed and get anxiety when i'm over stressded and that definatley helps. Setting a schedule would also help make sure i didn't get overwhelmed by ensuring i had enough time to study and do all other necissary things. Also being present with the majorly lecture based college structure is a good tip so my mind doesnt wander. I always ask for help when i need it academically, i never give up and this senior year i've already learned that i need to take care of myself or i will never be able to succeed.

I need to follow these study tips next year! As it is i generally have these tips down within my own home. I use our den desk as my study space where all my stuff for homework is centralized, the room is quite, there are minimal distractions and i can be alone. I need to work on the whole planning my study time thing though and actually set a time to study.
