Finals week! Based on a poll on my blog many of you are 13-19, which means some of you may be the Class of 2011! Big Congrats!! I wanted to share some tips on preparing for your success with finals testing and also share some shoes that would be hot to rock for Graduation Day.
Also,did you know that in my graphic novel MODEL LIFE, there is a page that features FINALS WEEK. YUP! Here is the page Iwanted to share, illustrated by the awesome Jazmin Ruotolo:
Finals Week is full of all types of pressures, but it is best to take it in stride and just focusing on doing the best you can. In a book I love called Half Broke Horses, Lily Casey Smith, the narrator mentioned how in life we don't always get to do what we want to do---and it is true, sometimes we have to sacrifice for our own success and carry the load, our load that comes with doing what we want to do and getting there.
Invest the time and get the dime <--- mine. And what I mean by that is invest the time in yourself, be prepared for your success and give it the focus it deserves. The dime can be in $, but it can also mean acceptance to college, getting the job you want, or accomplishing another goal you have.
It doesn't matter the goal. Usually getting where you want to go and doing what you want to do takes focus, time, energy and persistence. And a HUGE amount of it. ~ij
Bring some water and a snack on testing day.
