Plan for the unexpected: computers crash, printers run out of ink, people get sick. Have a plan before it happens.
When sending an email, include a specific subject line. “Hi,” “Help,” or “Question” aren’t very helpful. “Help with citations” or “Question about assignment 3” is.
We should strive to do well, but our worth isn’t based on our grades, our jobs, our appearance. We all have worth as human beings.
To learn, question everything and everyone: yourself, your sources, your teachers, your friends, your family. Why do you think/believe what you do?
For extra practice, complete the assignments in your textbook. You might not get a grade but you’ll get a better understanding of the material.
For realsies, completely non-required work will really help you, especially if you struggle with the material.
Ask for help when you need it, but first ask yourself: What have I done to answer this question/solve this problem? Have I read the syllabus/book? Tried Google?
You don’t have to know everything. But knowing where to look for answers is a valuable skill.
