Reply PossibilitySwan says: September 8, 2019 at 2:15 am I am in community college right now. I am very afraid if I am going to fail because I don't do well in math and for my major (environmental science) I have to have to always take a math class. I want to study and motivate myself, but whenever I do I get distracted and lose focus. I will, however, try to eat more healthy and annotate my notes! I know I can do it if I only try and ask for help! Thank you!

Thank you ☺ Reply crystallites k says: September 20, 2019 at 9:45 am when do you write your notes?how time should you distribute between studying and relaxing on a daily (I know procrastination may change this but ideally?) With all that work done your lecture notes, and writing it and doing the study guides, do you have any time at all to relax? Not going to lie, I should be doing much more than I am right now, but I already have no time to relax at all, after math assignments, I have labs, after labs I have physics assignments and you can guess the rest of it. it would go on for the whole week and the next week is the same. It never stops. I figured I need to find a solid studying schedule asap.How do you know what to study? I started a math class after 2 years of not touching math since pre cal in grade 12, and back then I got a good 90 at least, but in lectures I get the feeling where its familiar, but if I was tested I wouldn't know. my foundations were a mess to even start learning calculus. Everything feels all over the place and I don't know where to start. I would to my TAs office hours but I wouldn't even know what questions to ask. (I know you said you took most writing courses but im sure every subject has its own types of obstacles and im wondering how you would deal with it, like things like what to study, how to study by yourself)Its so hard because in high school they really tell you every little thing from how to think about it to how to do it/answer it. I didn't need any extra help. And now on my own I have problems trying to figure it out by myself. I need to find a way to study smart asap before I fail university but im just overwhelmed with everything and everything is slowly falling apart. Reply light says: September 20, 2019 at 3:42 pm I loved this video so much. I already do most of the things you did for studying and note taking and stuff but I needed the motivation and that hug at the end hugs back thank youuu Reply Andrea Escoute says: September 20, 2019 at 6:32 pm thank you for the motivational speech , really needed that rn ! Reply Kasey Ann says: September 22, 2019 at 12:39 am Your vitamins comment :') Reply Trinity Kadence says: September 22, 2019 at 2:21 am Make sure your feeding yourself things that will make you- OH MY GOSH I FORGOT TO TAKE MEH VITAMINS.silenceThat's okay I'll take my vitamins laterr😂 Reply Caroline Yang says: September 23, 2019 at 7:28 am thanks to ur video, it reminds me a lot, honestly i have much pressure these days because of the exams, but after watching this, i think it's okay and i can handle this, keep myself motivated again!! Reply izzy eh says: September 23, 2019 at 10:58 pm I'm a new subscriber but already considering writing quotes from ninas videos in my bullet journal to remind me of some of her advice, her mind is soooo relatable & sometimes your unable to look after yourself how you would advise others, so her advice feels like things I know but also would forget apply to myself when I should apply them to me… If that makes any sense :)) Thanks Nina <3 Reply izzy eh says: September 23, 2019 at 11:01 pm "hug your pet" me: * remembers I'm leaving my dog to go to university 🙁 * Reply izzy eh says: September 23, 2019 at 11:02 pm LOVE YOURSELF: Oh no Reply izzy eh says: September 23, 2019 at 11:03 pm Love Yourself: SMILES Reply John 3:17 says: September 24, 2019 at 1:10 am aww ur so sweet God bless you this really helped me I love you so much.Thank you for your courage and words.

I am literally broken. .. now I am gonna increase my studying time … I have to get at least a grade in 12th final. I am planning to come equipped to come us after 12th to study Reply Chloe Chin says: September 24, 2019 at 10:47 pm here are some (personal)tips that helped me alot: (i'm a hs student)-study until you are confident in what you know and that you will do well-memorization is good, but it's a lot easier to learn more/ remember more if you actually understand what you are learning/studying -quizlet, and make your own quizlet, because the definitions can be more personalized and more effective when you type everything out– use your resources! khan academy, practice tests, textbooks, practice problems, etc.– sometimes you fail, sometimes you pass, just stay positive and aim higher next time! good luck 🙂 Reply Jannat Faris says: September 25, 2019 at 3:50 am the last 10 mins i felt like namjoon is speaking!!! love you nina 💜 Reply Shania Maitland says: September 25, 2019 at 11:57 pm i needed this <3 Reply Jossu •ᴗ• says: September 28, 2019 at 2:03 pm Welp I'm nowhere NEAR an A student, more like a ''as long as I pass I'm good'' student, but thanks for the motivation to study!
