Check our tips to help you kick off the school year right and embrace your true self this year.
Try Out for Something Have you ever heard the phrase “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”? It’s true! If you’ve always been too shy or intimidated to try out for a club or team, start the school year off right by trying out for something that interests you. Set a goal and determine how you can achieve it. Even if you don’t make the cut, don’t sweat it — seek out other opportunities or create your own. There’s a club or team out there that’s perfect for you, so do your research and find the right fit for you.
Ace Your Year Were your grades less than perfect last year? The beginning of a new school year is the perfect time to start over. Cut down on the time you spend each night chatting with your friends and devote that extra time to your schoolwork. It may take some getting used to, but getting better grades and being prepared everyday will make you feel like a superstar!
Having trouble in a specific class? Ask your teacher for help. That's what they're there for! Most teachers keep after school hours where you can get extra help or he/she may have a referral for a tutor. Stay a little late to get the help you need. Teachers would rather you ask for help than have you struggle!
Embrace Your Relationships Surround yourself with good friends this year. Whether this is keeping in touch with an old friend or reaching out to become friends with someone new. Great times usually start with great people.
Are you in a toxic relationship with a guy? If you're dating someone who isn't nice, doesn't appreciate you or doesn't respect you, it’s time to end the relationship. You deserve to be with someone who makes you feel happy and appreciated. Dating someone who makes you feel anything less than that is not worth your time.
