"I feel like i could play soccer with the globe now!"
How I did it: Stayed afterschool, worked through lunch/ work. Skipped the parties, stayed home and did all of my coursework while listening to jazz music. I felt socially detatched, but the look on some my classmates faces when I recieved certificates of acheivement in every one of my classes made the nights I didnt get drunk with them totally worth it.
Lessons & tips: Get a full nights sleep on week nights, and start studying for exams a couple months ahead of time, instead of just cramming 2 days before.
Resources: They post the exams from the year before on most county school sites, which are a fantastic study tool, they helped me get a rough idea of what the questions would be like, and helped point out areas i could improve in. And note cards are dumb, I hate them, they dont help me learn material; only word/phrase associations, which help about as much as an english textbook during a science exam.
