Year 12 is over… you’re in the big kids pool now. There are a lot of changes to adjust to and a lot more coming. Use this list to help you know whether you need to dry your eyes (m8) or flip the bird to the world and find somewhere you’ll love study.

If any of these things are happening to you, or if you find yourself under your bed crying every night in fear of what tomorrow’s class might bring (and there’s no shame in that), then you should probably just find a better place to study.

Choose something you’re passionate about; you should feel included in class and you should feel like whatever you’re studying will get you a job eventually.

LOVE STUDY EVERY DAY.
