Dear Dish-It: Finals Are Coming Up

May 07, 2012

Dear Dish-It,

Final exams are coming up in June and I’m really scared of failing. What should I do?

Epic Fail

Dear EF,

Lucky for you, it’s early May, so there’s still plenty of time to study! I know it can be hard when the weather is warming up and all you feel like doing is going outside and being in the sun, but just think of how good you’ll feel once summer comes and school’s out, knowing you did your very best to get top marks in your finals and end the year off right!

Get Organized

First thing’s first: set yourself up to be a successful studier! Before you start cramming, get your notes in an order that makes sense to you. You may even want to copy some of your messier notes out again (this is also a great way to get information to stick in your head). Then, as you go through everything you need to know for your exams, highlight the parts that you had trouble with or that don’t make sense so you can give extra attention to those before you write your finals.

Study Buddy

Unless you’re better working on your own, ask a friend or two to form a study group and meet once a week or so to get set for finals together. Here’s a good tip: pick friends who have strengths in different subjects than you, so you can tutor each other in math, English, science, etc.

Teacher Talk

While you’re studying (you should set aside time every night or couple of nights to prepare before June rolls around), make note of the things you really don’t understand and don’t be afraid to ask your teacher to clear things up for you. Once finals roll around, you’ll be glad you did!

Have Your Say

Got any good advice for Epic Fail? Leave your comment below!

Thanks,

Dear Dish it

Hello Amelia! Fellow natural ginger here. Your hair is a gorgeous colour and I don't blame your parents for not wanting you to dye it. How about the dye only be temporary? It won't stay on forever, so you'll have your cool rainbow colours and still have your natural colour. I do need to warn you, though, don't dye your hair too much. It's not good for your scalp. Good luck. :)

They know what is best for you. But if you really wanna dye your hair, you should compromise with them. Like for instance: tell them you can dye the bottom of your hair the color, and then when you get older, you could maybe dye a little more, and so on. But your parents know what's best for you, and they want you to look presentable.                       ~PCG :)

Hello players of KidzWorld! I am Amelia, feel free to call me Payton or whatever you'd like! So, let us jump right into this! :D -=+=- I have natural ginger hair and really, REALLY strict parents. I would like to dye my hair this blue color called "Atomic Turquoise" by Maniac Panic :) However, my parents don't want me to dye my hair as they think that these colors look "trashy". Girls whom I know, have dyed hair. One of them even has piercings I want. Another has had her hair every color of the rainbow and more! So, my parents are very strict and quite... I don't even know. They won't allow me to do anything really... Does anyone have anything I can use to have my parents allow me to dye my hair? Thank you! :D <3 ~Payton

lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

Dear Dish it, Im already a grown teen but I don't think I am that easy to get along whem meeting new friends in school. And I think its because I lose my confidence cause I got some speech defect which called lisp. I often sometimes looks weird when theyre talking to me and It really affects me. What should I do? I have read and tried all the practice and therapy I read in the internet for a year but it doesnt make a change. I hope you help me
