I wish my friends had the same motivation. I hate seeing them struggle.

I think if Post-Secondary options were more popular/easily obtainable, this wouldn't be so much of a big deal. The adjustment between college and High school, that is.

I generally find that my work isn't too difficult, it's just time management that can be hard to properly do. I think with the proper time management, even a difficult level of work can be easy to manage if you can balance it out with recreational stuff so you don't burn out. I know I've managed to keep on top of my work this semester because I've done a better job than usual with time management. Despite the work, it's definitely worth the investment.

This.

I was tackling a three year gap by the time I started college and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be. College (usually) only gets difficult for me when I don't apply myself enough, though there are those times I just...get hit with a ton of work that makes me want to cry. If a person really aspires for something, you'll get it because you'll want to put in the amount of work you must to have that goal become a reality.

All you need to do is apply yourself and you'll be fine.

Contrary to yourself, in high school, physics was the subject I was the best at, complementing maths and chemistry. I loathed biology, as well as philosophy and sociology. The way our teachers addressed those subjects was utterly unappealing and dementia-provoking (yes, to that extremity!).

My advice to you is as simple as concentrating and successively doing your homework assignments. Worked out for me great after a series of slacking off and disregarding assigned homework.

Oh, and I eat snow. A lot. Well, when I was a kid, I did.

I'm only in 7th grade although I do do algebra and so far the work hasn't been too hard. Not much homework or anything and it's nice. I bet it seems easy to me because I'm only taking 1 high school class. xD Ugh I'll be taking Algebra 2 when I'm a freshman. ;;

Chances are you won't struggle too much in high school either, tbh. You seem smart, so maybe you'll overload with higher classes and struggle senior year or something but it's not as hard as it may seem. :P

Oh god, Algebra...I...those courses were a nightmare for me. When it comes to math, I'm not the brightest bulb, or the sharpest knife when it comes to math, I'm pretty much awful at it. I could never ask my parents for help because they were like me. I hated math, and loved Social Studies/World History.

I'm really good at everything. I always got A's on tests, and never once studied for them.

Big projects and essays were the bane of my existence though.

Oh yeah we had a quiz today. It was easy... I think or maybe I just got things confused and I was doing stuff wrong.

That sounds like me 'though I'm thinking about just attending my Calc. class for nap time and study on my own. My professor sucks =.= It's the only class that's really been a pain to me :/

My next break is Fall Break which only lasts a few days and it's coming up in a few weeks.

The two big college breaks are End Semester 1/Winter Break which stretches from mid-December to mid-January, and End Semester 2/Summer Break which stretches from mid-May to late-August.

Lucky duck! I'd love to get out of class :/ Fortunately though... this year marks a lot of ends for me

I'll be finishing all the math and history I'll need. And I'll only need one more English. The rest is just a lot of science which I can take down easy ^-^

My next school break happens to fall on Columbus Day, I think, and if not Columbus Day, my next day off is for sure the 21st of October (1 DAY BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY!) for an Education Minnesota convention, since I attend a school staffed by union teachers. Other than that, there's nothing until the week of American Thanksgiving (not to be confused with Canada's).

It's really annoying to watch the college I go to temporarily close due to lack of funds. And we also can't do anything about it...

That... Really... Sucks. I plan to go to college, but I have a suvere lack of funds. I had over $3000 saved up (nearly enough for the first year of tution, mind you) but my mother had to declare bankruptcy and they saw that money and told her she had to get rid of it. ;_;


So here I am back at square one.

Any sort of federal financial aide? Not sure how Canada does that.
