1. We all know by now it is perfectly socially acceptable to burst out in song and dance narrating our lives in public places like the library. Right? Well, if you have a less-than-perfect-pitch like me, maybe try to do this one in the privacy of your own home. It works extraordinarily well as stress reliever. Trust me.
2. Just because the kids at McKinley High don’t go to class doesn’t mean you should do the same. They don’t seem to have tests or midterms to write, but we do!
3. Brittany finds recipes confusing. Maybe she just wasn’t reading them properly. Previewing the material for a “big picture” perspective and thinking of questions while reading allows one to stay more focused and gain better understanding of the material.
4. Take a lesson from Sue Sylvester. She may possess an inordinate amount of evilness in her veins, but even she has a soft spot. The most intimidating profs are willing to help you if you need it.
5. Channel some of your inner Rachel Berry next time you hit the books: keep your reward in sight. In Rachel’s case, a trophy from a singing competition or a starring role on Broadway; in my case, a guilt-free dose of TV. Don’t forget the gold star when you’re done.
