Well it was to do all of my homework on time for once but I already failed epically at that XDD Pretty much I'm taking two IB classes this year, so my goal is to not fail those two, actually do some volunteer work so my college resume'll look prettifuls and stuff, and try to actually write my Model UN papers for once this year. Oh, and try not to get as stressed out as I did last year (although that's just because I was taking AP classes. I learned my lesson, so now I'm taking IB instead. LOT less stressful)
Oh, and do the 20+(real number here, BTW) requests and art trades I have to do along with my own personal projects including my submission for the final round of an art tournament I've been in for like, 4 or 5 months.
Learn German properly, get good marks from everything i can, luckily i got 1 language exam from english, so that's not a problem now. And naturally, get better at drawing, and draw a lot, but i must maintain my free time with my study time to not get lazy. That's pretty much it! xD
I'm taking Latin But I hope German goes well for you~ Also, good luck for the rest of your goals as well More balance XD Excellent~ I mean, you figure as long as you finish your schoolwork and study properly for tests you'll be able to continue to draw lots. That's what I have to do. Good luck!
Do IB (International Bachelor) Photograph as much as possible. Prepare to go to Africa this April, so I can help in the orphanages. Continue learning English and Spanish on top of being Head in French first language class. Keep my three jobs, That help support my family Not get fat. And Volunteer with the school so I can hopefully qualify to go to Guatemala in 12th grade. Teach kids how to Sail 420's
SO my goal is really not to die this year -__-
Yeah that's pretty much my goal this year. Ahahah 11th grade has never been this hard for anybody.
Oh, your school got the IB as well? Our school was one of the few to get it in the US D: So I heard, anyway XD I could be completely wrong with my information. You sound like such a kind, smart person D: I wish you much luck with those goals! And you're only an 11th grader?? Goodness! I'm only a year behind you and I don't have half as much important stuff to focus on. Really for me it's just raising my GPA and keeping my grades up to A's and B's. Also, I want to get a lead in a school play this year. But, I mean, your goals are just so amazing <3
Ah, I see D: Kind of XD My classes start early August and go 'til about May. Though, we're changing things up a bit this year so...yeah XD You're lucky it's so short though D: Because of exams? I wish you more luck then <3 I hope you do well~
OHHHH okay XD That makes slightly more sense. I wish I had more written exams ;A; I miss them. Everything is on scantron. I HATE SCANTRONS Thank you >w< I hope I can too. I really never have before....so if I can, I'll be very proud of myself!
Oh those exams huh I kinda got used to them past high school...But yes, those are annoying. I've the horrible tendency to skip past numbers or mix them up, and my old school had a policy about not allowing any erasures on major exams so...yeah, I kinda feel your pain
Well it's a noble goal I admit it won't be easy, but do your best
It's fine XD I figured it out eventually. Oh, I'm getting used to them XD I still despise them though. I skip past numbers every other test or so D; It's pretty terrible. I would never make that kind of mistake if I wasn't using a scantron. No erasers on major exams??? But what if you make a mistake?!?! That's a terrible policy! XD Thank you! I will!
well, i am actually taking one more class than everyone else in my grade is and i am actually taking a different language too (SPECIAL) so i want to be able to balance all of them out my goal is to get straight a's all year long and i want to be in as many extra cirricular activities as possible too i am going to try and stay in a mind set of homework, then relaxing rather than relaxing and scrambling to finish some homework haha yeah, im taking advanced language, math and science i am taking advanced music(both choir and band) and i am taking french and normal humanities (no advanced, just normal and below average) so yeah, its going to be reeeeaaaallllyyyyy difficult, but i will try i am actually super excited for this year to start, i feel like a nerd but hey there is nothing wrong w/ nerds, right???
Whoa! I just quit my French class XD I couldn't have gone onto French II because I didn't pay very good attention in I. I'm taking Latin this year but I really wanted to take Korean I suppose I have to teach that to myself. Wow! Those are some good goals I should probably stay in a mind-set of homework as well. Usually I AM relaxing and then scrambling to finish work at the last minute. Let's do our best together You sound VERY smart D: I'm jealous. I'm taking Honors English but that's my only semi-advanced class this year. I'm excited as well! And here I thought I was alone on that XD I SHALL BE SO NERDY THAT NO BOY WILL WANT TO TOUCH ME WITH A TEN FOOT POLE 8D Well....maybe a five foot pole XD The last thing I need is a male distraction though! Sounds like we both need/want to stay focused so let's do our best :3
3rd in the class?? Congrats, dear!!! You should be proud I want to focus too but I want to focus while still enjoying myself. Like, being able to balance what I want to do with schoolwork. I have a 2.7 GPA right now and I really need to get it up. If it goes lower than a 2.5, I can't use my scholarship :/ Anyway, I wish you luck for the year!
You're so smartttt ;A; You do so well in schooolllllll. How do you do it?? I can never stay motivated enough and I always feel like doing what I want to do instead of what I want to do. So I fall behind and my grades/GPA go down...
Meeeeeeeh. I work my tail off to get those grades. However, after you see those straight A's, it's seriously one of the best feelings in the world. Knowing that you set a goal and reached it, just EEEEEEEe~ I set smaller goals before that. I would tell myself to study really hard right before a test and I would challenge myself to get a B or higher. Also, studies show that if you are more confident about your tests, you score higher! I used to get so stressed during tests. But now, I look around and (I know this sounds horrible, but it works) I tell myself that the majority of the class will get a lower score. XD And I'm right. >w>
Oh, I'm sure you do! XD I know it is....I really do miss that feeling. It's been a while. Set smaller goals? Does that make things easier? I usually set large goals but maybe if I set smaller ones? Would it minimize pressure and possibly maximize motivation? D; Haha that's so great!! I will totes try that! I go into tests stressed like every time XD Though, on occasion I don't but....ya know. Thanks for the tips!

Get better grades than last year :w: I didn't do badly, I just would like the assurance of not having to worry every time report card day rolls around. And if could maybe not fail my first-period Chem class, that'd be excellent. :T
Hahaha same here, broseph XD I didn't really do too bad either. Though, the way my mum talks about it, you would think that I was repeating Freshman year! I do hate dreading report card day though ._. I'm taking Earth Space so I don't really have that problem XD I will next year though. Anything's better than Biology in my opinion though...
Balance~ Good luck! How long have you been playing flute? I played trumpet for about three years but I quit once I started high school so I could focus on other things I want to make more friends too Online and off. I made quite a few last year but hopefully I'll make more this year <3
I'm probably going to have to do that for my next two years XD But I still probably won't be able to relax a bunch Senior year even then. If I get my GPA up, I have to keep it up along with my grades...
It's pretty hard to do in the middle of your high school years, but I just thought about how much better my transcript would look and I pushed for honors. If I got stuck, I'd stay after school for help or ask a friend, but I found that if I really just stop drawing in my notebooks and pay attention, I'll understand things easier and better xD
Yeah, I completely understand. I plan on taking some AP courses before school ends but that's about it XD I figured I can't push myself too hard considering my record of slacking off. However, I really would try to take more Honors courses if I thought I could do it. Your transcript will probably look very nice XD I'm leaving all my sketchbooks and blank paper home this year XD I can't risk it. I WILL PAY ATTENTION IF IT COSTS ME MY LIFE.
