Guide to GOOD GRADES (yeahhss)

“Positivity always wins… always.” – Gary Vaynerchuk

Remember that your grades do not define you and that what matters is what you make of yourself and how you rise up against the hardships in life and give back to those around you and the planet at the end of the day.

whew.

Okay, now let’s do this. ūüôā You got it. Here’s a video I made on GETTING THOSE GOOD GRADES. I hope it really helps you and you enjoy!!

Important tips to doing good at school:

Your MINDSET is your magic power. I am a strong believer that what you put your mind to and what you honestly and genuinely believe you can do, YOU CAN DO. What you can do right now to just bring yourself a step closer to your goal is to fully BELIEVE that you got this, that you’re capable, and that YOU’RE AWESOME.¬†

Going off of mindset, you also need to surround yourself with like-minded people who aim to reach success along with keeping a positive and kind attitude. You tend to imitate the actions and thoughts of the people you spend most of your time with. It was studied by social psychologists which showed that the people you most associate with had a very high percentage in the influence of your life. 

You want that A? You want to do well in school? Here’s one of the secrets: you have to make SCHOOL and those GRADES top PRIORITY.

You need to defeat the enemy: procrastination

You have your calendar, your MOTIVATION, and some other tips by your side. YOU GOT THIS. As soon as you get home, grab your homework or project out and finish it. Give yourself an hour of full concentration and DO IT. If you realize that there’s a couple of homework stashed in the deep end of your backpack right now, pause from reading this awesomeness (here’s a free permission slip), and complete that. DON’T LET THE ENEMY WIN.¬†

Another helpful way to know which direction to take when studying is to find out your learning style. If you know it already, feel free to skip forward to the next tip! Everyone learns differently and that’s completely fine. The good news about understanding this is we can find out what is the best way to learn to optimize our study time. You can click¬†here¬†to take the learning style assessment! What I love about the assessment is that at the end of the test, it will tell you a list of the best ways and ideas you can do to study your best. Take the test! ūüôā¬†

The next thing on the agenda is raising your hand. RAISE. YOUR. HAND. First off, it’s good for arm exercise. Second off, if you need help to understand whatever the teacher is talking about in class raise your hand and ask them to explain it. I know all the eyes in the classroom might seem kind of intimidating at first but raising your hand to understand better is really worth it and helpful in passing in class.

I’ll end you with this: Find your WHY. It is highly important to find your why because it will work as your motivation. When things get tough, your why will help you. YOU GOT THIS. I really hope this helps you keep a positive mindset while proving to yourself that you’re 100% capable of doing this.¬†

Youtube University

Quote of awesomeness: ‚ÄúI am still learning‚ÄĚ ~ Michelangelo

Youtube, youtube, youtube, how it’s grown these past¬†few years. Let’s go back to the beginning, shall we?

There’s no youtube university….. YET! But, with youtube, you can learn so much from coding, cooking, hacking, how-to’s, about the universe and so much more!! Any gender, color, and ethnicity have the free access to learn and even add about what they know into youtube, as long as there’s wi-fi. It’s amazing, isn’t it?

It was 2005, February 15 when the website, called Youtube, was being built up. Who were the faces behind this, exactly? Three names Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. This idea started when Chad and Hurley tried sending a video with sound to their friends through e-mail. But, then the file was too large that it wouldn’t send which then sparked an idea to create a website where videos could be shared!

Ooooh, I wonder *wink* where could do *wink* that now (hint: Starts with You and ends with Tube). 

The first ever video on Youtube was on April 23, 2005, which was posted by Jawed Karim, was their testing video to see if the website worked. 

Here is the first youtube video! It’s called “Me at the Zoo” and is only about 19 seconds long. There are about¬†46,035,660 views and growing as people still come and visit the first ever youtube video. If you scroll down a bit on this youtube video, it’s very likely to see very very very recent comments. This was 12 years ago! Imagine how this literally started a new era.

100 million videos were on the site when Youtube was just one year old! And, on October 9, 2006, Google bought youtube for $1.65 billion.
