10 Habits Of Highly Successful Students

Thought Catalog

Before I realized I wanted to be a scientist, I didn’t give a hoot about studying. I went into college with no idea how to study. None. Zip. Zilch. I didn’t really believe in studying in high school, because I was under the delusion I was going to be a rock star. (I was not exactly what you might have called a “successful student. I didn’t fail out or anything, but I didn’t exactly have perfect attendance. I once came to class and a teacher didn’t know who I was. I had to explain to her that I was in fact in her class, and to look at her class register. She replied that she figured I dropped the class, since I hadn’t shown up. Nope, I just didn’t want to go to PE first thing in the morning. Point being — I wasn’t always a 4.0 student.) But when I…

Sketches and Progress work

First off- an androgynous body mod angel I’m sketching out. I love body art, and I am enamoured by androgyny. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous.

In the middle, an Ace!Pride angel, for an eventual silk screening project. Angels mean a lot to me and so does pride for my identity.

Last off, a couple original concept sketches of a project for art class. The only criteria is incorporating animal bones into the picture- so I drew a pseudo baphomet, and subbed in a bull skull for the head.

School upd8!!

Today was registration day!
I went and got my photo taken for my student ID, and got my schedule!!
I’m loving the courses I have.
I have drawing and painting first thing in the morning, and then I have maths, and then a spare ( which I’m going to spend working in bake shop in the cafeteria!! My favourite thing ever ), and then I have college prep, mixed bag art!
Two art courses and a spare, all in one semester. It is awesome.

Second semester, I have two spares first thing ( I’m going to spend all my spares the same way- in the kitchen, where I belong. Culinary arts is my very favourite talent ) and then I have English- with a teacher I love!- and then… another maths? I’m going to talk to my guidance counsellor and get that taken out in a few weeks, and see what I can put instead. I don’t know why I have two different maths. Honestly I’m awful at math. Maths is a necessary skill, but one that I, alas and alack, do not possess.

I start first semester next Wednesday! Which means I may not be able to get all my challenges done on schedule. Brace yourselves.
