Going Back to School and Exams

Hi guys!
In this post I will be talking about Going back to School and Exams!

Now going back to school can be a stressful time or a fun time depending on how you look at it.  You can meet your friends after the long weekend and catch up on all the latest gossip. But, on the other hand, you have to tough out Math class with that super scary teacher who always hangs around you when you are doing your work... Yeah, I've been through it all... 

The main reason that most people look forward to going back to school is to see their friends and make new ones. But I love going back to school because I love buying all the new stationary... Yes, yes I am a stationary geek! Am I the only one? 

New rubbers, pencils of different colours (I bought some lovely neon ones for this year!), textbooks and tiny little sprinkles on top! 
Sometimes things you don't even need. You know you have that awesome sharpener that shaped as a world... but they have a sale in the football ones! Oh, I have a pink rubber at home... oh, well I'll have it anyway. Besides, I don't have a green one... I GET YOU, GURL ( or guy!). I go crazy at the back to school sales! Most of the stuff I have bought is right at the bottom of the stationary draw which would probably be worth millions because there's ANTIQUES in there! A rubber from 2008 and a ruler that was "cool" because it was bendy. STOP! JUST STOP. Stick to a cheaklist, ok? Or handcuffs...  

So my next subject is the all important EXAMS. Dun, dun DUNNN!! Now, whatever exam you doing, your guaranteed stress- and lots of it! I am going to write some studying hacks here so you don't feel stressed whilst studying: 
1) ALWAYS  keep a glass of water next to you. That way you can keep a clear head and be watered at the same time! Also, you might want to include some nibbles. Nuts, dried fruits or chocolate would do the trick! Whatever floats your boat. 
2)  KEEP flashcards! Preferably with the info that you struggle with so that you can learn in a flash! Get it? These are really helpful for on the go, in the hallways before the actual exam or even just for day to day revision! This, personally, is my favorite tip! :)
3) SIT in a place where you won't get any distractions (especially from annoying sisters or brothers!) that way you can keep focus on that tricky algebra question... 
How about you comment down what your tips are and how you are going to apply them in school life?! That way we can all make sure we actually do them! 
  I hope all the tips and tricks in this post  helped you in the way it helped me!! Tune in next time for the last part of Runaway Boy! Oooohhh so exciting! 

                    See you later!

  1. I study for an exam similar to you! I just write as much information I need on A4 pieces of paper and then make a quiz for a family or friend to test me on! I'm having a Blogger Choice Awards and would LOVE for you to enroll! Thanks :D
