Have any study tips? I try reading and re-reading the textbook (for science) and nothing is sticking!
Dear Study Problems,
Science textbooks are tough. I wouldn’t suggest trying to memorize off of them, oftentimes it ends up getting too complicated. I struggled with this too, until I hit Grade 10 and my science teacher made us create these study packages to help us remember things for each test. It consisted of a summary poster, Q&A sheet, vocab cards, and notes. Now, I’m not saying you should do all these things, but try one of them and see if it helps! I found writing my own notes the most useful because then I could look through the textbook and figure out which parts were necessary to remember and what wasn’t. Writing stuff down also helps you memorize the subject matter easier. Good luck!
I’ve been trying really really hard to get a job but I just can’t seem to find one! I’ve applied to so many places but I’ve yet to receive a call back. Am I doing something wrong? All my friends have jobs and I want to have the money to go out with everyone else. Any suggestions?
Getting that first job can be really hard. I can totally relate to you! I’ve applied to a lot of places too. Depending on where you’re applying, what employers look for first and foremost is how much work experience you have. They also look at how old you are. If you really want to get a job (and earn money!), places likes McDonald’s are more relaxed on these standards, so to speak. If you’re like me and working in the fast food industry doesn’t appeal to you, I would look at building up your résumé. Volunteer work and being active in school clubs is always a good thing to have on there. Keep trying and don’t give up! Having an open availability can also be really important for some places. Ask your friends if they know about any openings where they work! You could always ask one of them to refer you to their manager.
