3rd Quarter Struggles

Written by Allie

Dear Allie,

How do I handle stress during the third semester?

Dear anonymous,

3rd quarter can be hard.  It’s towards the end of the year, but you’re not exactly close to summer break.  It can always be a really long quarter.  There are a few things you can do to make this time more bearable and successful.  First of all, stay positive.  Believe that you can get through it and everything will be okay.  School may be challenging, but if you work hard and ask for help when you need it, you can do it.  Study daily.  This is annoying, I know, but if you do a little bit every day, the work load will be a lot more manageable.  Lastly, get lots of sleep and give yourself a break when you need it.  This will give you peace of mind.  If you do all of this, 3rd quarter will go by in a breeze!

Sincerely,                                                                                                               Allie
