Tips To Get Through School Easier

Updated on September 21, 2018

I firsthand experience school pretty much daily, so why not take some advice from someone who's experiencing everything?



Ahh, the school bell rings and kids rush down the hallways to their lockers. It's a Friday of all days, there's a whole weekend to look forward to! You arrive home, load up Fortnite, spam party invites to your friends only to realize you have thirteen pages of missing assignments. You sigh and put it off for the night. I mean, who has time for that.

It ends up stretching to 11:31 pm, you're exhausted but you still have that darn homework. You decide to go to bed, only to wake up with a warm welcome of that same pile of homework sitting on your desk because you refused to turn in your assignments on time. Yep, that's me. In fact, as of writing this, I'm procrastinating on my missing work. I was threatened to be grounded if I didn't get my assignments done tonight, but I simply can't help myself from being distracted all the time. So I've decided to write this article about the DOs and DON'Ts when dealing with school.

1. Turn in your stuff on time.

Oh boy have I failed with this one. I have four missing assignments in math, three in English, two in Science; I'm a wreck and I have to get it all done this weekend. If that wasn't enough, I also have homework I currently have to do.

Keeping up with missing work is crucial for killing off stress and anxiety. Dealing with a thirty question math assignment is better than dealing with one-hundred thirteen math questions by the end of the month. The worst part is is you can't use excuses. Your teacher may come up to you and give you the same look she always does when you don't have the paper that everyone else has on their desks.

My stupidity has led me to get kicked out of Algebra 1 and instead I must take Pre-Algebra or even 7th grade accelerated. That's how much missing assignments can ruin your schedule. I came home on Thursday ready to do my assignments, I printed them all out, but by the time I sat down to do them my mind went foggy. That night I also had a band performance so I got started at 8:30 pm. I gave up, and now I'm being kicked out of Algebra. It's almost unbelievable.

Make sure to keep up on your assignments, and you'll be well on your way to being successful in school. Even if you get an F on the assignment, 0.01% is better than a zero in the end, plus it's easier to retake (if you have a redo/retake policy).

2. Alternate between homework and breaks.

In my opinion, and to some this might seem like a horrible schedule, but I alternate between homework and breaks like this. One hour of homework, 20 minutes of making music, writing articles, etc. This is a great way to not overwork your brain, although if you have ten pounds of homework, maybe do an hour of homework and a ten minute break. Remember, you don't want to be up all night.

Studies show how the brain can be affected by extended periods of straight work. This can cause exhaustion of your mind causing you to complete homework even slower than usual.

I wouldn't recommend playing video games or watching Youtube (or anime in my case) during your breaks because these are technically "addictive" in a way. I once took a break and played Geometry Dash for the time being and ended up stretching it for two hours. Once you start you just don't want to stop, which can cause problems for some people.

It's up to you how you get your assignments done, so do whatever works best for you. This is what works for me, so I stick with this.

3. Steer away from friends for the time being.

Your friends may be faster at getting their work done, thus you must plan accordingly. They may want to play Squads on Fortnite, toss a football around outside (although who goes outside anymore), or just talk in general. It may seem rude for turning them down, but you can always hang out with them after your homework is done.

I like to put my phone on Do Not Disturb, and play some quiet, relaxing music (also known as heavy metal) while doing my homework. I find it easier to relax and concentrate with people screaming in my ears at full volume. Just a preference of mine.

This way your favorite bands can distract you from the "outside world" and help you stay focused on your schoolwork.


I should probably start on my homework now because I don't want to get grounded; however once I'm done I'd love to read your comments. I read every one and I also love getting fanmail. Good luck with school! (Also, my English teacher reads these so I have to thank her for not giving us enormous amounts of homework and that I PROMISE I'LL TURN IN MY MISSING ASSIGNMENTS MONDAY! I hope.)
