Tips and Tricks

1. No matter how tired, fed up or overwhelmed you are, DO NOT GIVE UP. It’s never worth it.
2. Always peel your banana from the top down.
3. Take school seriously. Just think about it; you’ve made it through this far. Why throw it all away now?
4. Don’t date during your freshmen year.
5. Remember, you can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose. Well, you can but that would be weird.
6. Crocs are never okay. Ever.
7. Don’t procrastinate.
8. While studying or doing homework, take short brain breaks. Do five jumping jacks, breathe in your nose and out of your mouth or just listen to a favorite song. These things should help keep your attention and increase brain activity resulting in better memorization.
9. Make sure to wear pink on Wednesday. At Northwest, we wear pink on Wednesday.
10. No matter how cliché, be yourself. Your high school years will go much smoother that way.
