How To Ace All Of Your Classes This Semester, As Told By Michael Scott

How To Ace All Of Your Classes This Semester, As Told By Michael Scott
The Office, S.3 Ep.17

Getting a 4.0 GPA in college is not an easy task. With multiple professors expecting so many different things, and frankly not enough time in the day, it seems next to impossible to get "A’s" in all of the classes you take in a semester.

I’m here to show you that you can, and you will, ace all of your classes this semester! As a 3.9 GPA student myself, I believe I have cracked the code in always getting the coveted "A" grade. With a little help from Michael Scott, getting great grades, (and all the benefits that come with them), is as easy as binge watching all nine seasons of ‘The Office’ on Netflix instead of writing that 10 page paper.

1. Always wake up bright and early for a productive start to your day. Breakfast is a must, for a successful student.

2. Professionalism is key to making a great impression with your professors. Great impression, great grades.

3. Never lose confidence! If you believe in your success, it will come into fruition.

5. Ask important questions.

6. Always check the validity of your sources. The easiest way to receive points off on an essay is irrelevant or un-credible sources.

7. Never let outside influences affect your study habits.

8. Pay attention to your professors’ lectures. Professors will not include everything you need to know on the Powerpoint.

9. Expect more than normal, from yourself. If you have the mindset that getting a ‘B’ is okay in your classes, you will most likely end with a ‘B’.

10. Don’t ever take the easy road.

11. Group projects will put you in a tough spot. As a studious person, you will become extremely frustrated at your fellow group members for not putting as much effort into their portion of the project as you. It is okay if you feel the need to take charge, to make sure everything gets done.

12. Looking at test questions and feeling unsure is normal. Take a deep breath, reread the question, and come up with the best possible answer you can.

13. Prepare to study. A lot.

14. You might have to study so often, you never go outside.

15. But, never going fun places with your friends does have its perks.

16. Toward the end of the semester, you might feel yourself slacking. Don’t let it ruin your hard work!

17. Invest in a sponge.

18. If you bring a report card with all "A’s" to your automobile insurance agency, you get a discount on your insurance. Use this as a motivator!

If you follow these steps, by the end of the semester you will be looking at an extremely positive grade report! And you will feel satisfied in knowing you made it happen.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
