The best flavor of La Croix is actually the kiwi watermelon one, but the Pamplemousse (grapefruit) can is more iconic. Also, without sparkling water, I’d probably be dehydrated constantly. Another note, the lime flavor is the actual worst. Never drink it, ever.
Welcome back, I’m the zit you keep on covering in toothpaste every night, yet here I still remain in my overwhelmingly prominent, sort-of-obnoxious, advice-giving self, and I’m feeling pretty freaking minty. This week’s topic is how to survive school and If I were to be very honest right now, school keeps me from dissolving into a pile of skin and fat, it gives me some form of meaning to hold onto in life until I can die, or at least till I can hold a job. But other than an anchor to keep me steady, school is stressful, so here’s what small-ish shreds of advice on the topic that I have to dispense.
“What do you do when you have a bad grade?”
Well, depending on how bad the grade is, I cry. Haha just kidding, but I do get very disappointed in myself and sometimes it’s nice to just take a moment, back up and breathe. It’s not going to be the end of the world, one grade won’t kill you (hopefully) and unless it’s the end of the semester, you should have some time to raise it back up. So, the first step in raising up a bad grade depends on what class it’s in. Do you have a struggling grade in math or history? Then finding extra credit should be a little easier. Classes like language arts or science can be a little more complicated to get the boost because most of the points come from essays or labs and you usually have to wait till a test comes near and study hard so you can hopefully raise your grade as a whole. In math and history classes, it’s more likely for your teacher to reveal an extra credit assignment, and it may be really annoying, but if you want that boost, you’re going to have to do it anyways. Other than extra credit, another thing you can do is beg. Not actually, but maybe take some time out of your day, go to your teacher’s room, and tell them about your situation and ask on how you can work with them to help get your grade up.
“How do I stop procrastinating in APHUG??”
If I had the answer for you, I wouldn’t be doing 20 to 30 pages of AP HuG notes the night before a quiz. I don’t have a true answer for this, I’ve failed as an advice blog. So instead of answering the hardest riddle of all time, I’m making this a section into a call for help. Please the advice giver seeks the advice herself, if you have AP HuG tips please send them into me. Sorry to whoever asked this question, I’ve failed you.
“Why do teachers not teach? Some just hand out papers then expect us to learn from work sheets while they are playing angry birds on their phone”
This is absolutely wild. I’ve never heard or even seen a teacher do this. I have so many questions, how did you find out they were playing angry birds? Did they just tell you, “Work on this paper, I’m going to play angry birds.”? The first part of the question I understand, like we have all had a teacher that does nothing, but the angry birds part just seems so surrealist to me for some reason. Stepping aside from the birds, I think some teacher don’t teach because they’ve gone so many years using this teaching style without students or parents complaining about it, that they think they’re doing fine. Maybe someone did complain to them about their teaching style and they just didn’t care. It’s hard to look inside the inner workings of some teachers, like after years of being in school, they graduate then go back into a school system just in a different role. Everyday a constant stream of teenagers and everyday they’re teaching the same content for three or more classes a day. Personally that sounds maddening, and I think most teachers deserve more credit than what they get. However an infinitely repeating high school lifestyle doesn’t dismiss teacher’s from not teaching. It’s in the job title, teachers.
I’m someone who likes to be fully aware of their faults. So I’m just going to point out the digital elephant in this internet room and say, this advice is not that good. I’m sorry to disappoint you folks, I have deprived you of sweet advice, but it’s fine because this blog updates every Friday! Fun fun for everyone.
