Classes are getting harder, homework keeps piling up, and you can't stand sitting in class. When you wonder if schoolwork is getting you down, the first place you might think to look is at your grades.
But they are only one measure of how you're doing. Just as important is how you feel about schoolwork.
Change the things you can
Are you bored because you learn quickly?
Take this little quiz:
Do you dread going to school because you're sure you'll go through another day feeling that you're not "good enough?"
Do you feel discouraged and left behind by your classmates because it takes forever to finally finish your homework?
Are you bored because you learn new material quickly and breeze through your assignments?
If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, schoolwork is getting you down. But you can do something about it!
Believe that YOU can turn this around.
The first source to turn to for help is you. That's right, YOU. That's where it has to start. Believe that you can turn this around.
