    Hello hello!
    Alright so I'll be starting school soon and just thought that for all of those LAST MINUTE people! Let's write up some tips and hints on how to have a good year without wanting to stab yourself lols.

    Any ways, I'll start...I find that for myself I tend to hate dragging stuff with me. And if your schedule permits, DO DO DO RENT A LOCKER! It's not expensive at all so if you hate dragging stuff with you then please do that.

    My school supplies:
    3 notebooks
    1 clipboard
    1 laptop ---if you know for sure you will surf the internet then take this out, I type a lot faster than when I write.
    1 organizer device or agenda, yeah I know it's not like high school but sometimes you're going to forget all the cr*p that was said in class

    Please add more tips!

    Stop worrying :D

    Buy used books

    It's easy to end up hanging out with mostly high school friends, so branch out

    Don't expect the quality of teaching to go up (some profs are great, some are garbage)

    Ignore those that scare you about staying on top of school work. If you were an expert procrastinator during highschool, you'll still do fine in university

    To reaffirm the above, you know your own study/learning habits better than anyone, stick with what you know works

    Yup! Thanks, well all of my high school friends went to Cambridge, Oxford, Yale, and McGill lol. NONE went to UBC and the closest one to BC is at SFU.

    **Please note, I went to an International School w/ students who do not have Canadian Citizenship
