Those Sick Days - Formerly Lists

I am sick today, and therefore I cannot go into work. Therefore, therefore ... I have a lot of time to sit at home and do "stuff". So I racked my brain and made a list of things that need to be done today. Below are my formerly lists. BONUS: I found some lists I wrote a few months ago about prepping for college, the application process, and how to study in general. Hope they will be of some help!

_________FORMERLY LISTS_________

_________BONUS LISTS_________

>> High School, College and Beyond
  • Be disciplined every day.
  • Look at your assignment[s] right after class ends. Do what you can do right away, plan for the harder assignments.
  • Start preparing for the final the first day of class by making index cards, timelines, charts, graphs, free-writing to sample questions, etc (might sound a little overachieving, but you'll thank me when you get that A)
  • Always seek help and advice as soon as you need it.
  • Study first, and then have fun. <But be sure to fit in some fun.

>> Interview/Admissions
  • Come prepared with questions to ask
  • Research your respective college and their purpose and know about them before your interview
  • Know your strengths and weaknesses
  • Google college interviews (learning from the experiences of other students can really help!)
  • Research and know how to present yourself: appropriate attire, how to address who you'll be speaking to, etc
  • Pray

  • Get involved with the college
  • Find and utilize resources
  • Engage in the community
  • Study and learn with your fellow students
  • Get to know the area and all parts of the respective college in your freshman year
  • Balance your time well between academics and social
  • Be yourself

What are some of your recent lists? Maybe we share some tasks in common.
