Cute School Supplies & Advice on Grades

So I know most of us are back to school and while we may be dreading wakingup in the morning, we shouldm't dread using our school supplies! I wanted to share some of my favorite things I have gotten/created for school.

 Cute, Bow pencil pouch from Francescas. It's the perfect size. 

 These are  two of my favorite binder cover ideas. I got the patterns from Pinterest, and just typed the classes on using Microsoft Word. I love them, because they are much more unique and personalized to me. 


 My Kate Spade Agenda is my love. It has the perfect amount of room to right things that I need to do and plan all the major events in my life. How can you resist stripes and polka dots?








Now I just wanted to talk about how I made my composition books. I got basic composition books from Offic depot, but then used fun paper and monogram stickers to make them my own. I can easily point them out in a group and plus they are totally my style.

Don't Let Grades Get You Down
I'm assuming almost everyone is back at school now and if not back yet is very close to starting. I have been back for about 3 weeks, and have already had several tests and quizzes and I have received some grades I'm ecstatic about and others I wish I could hide under a rock. Whether you have the hardest course load possible or a fairly easy one, bad grades are going to come and you have to be prepared to react to them. You can not start crying, because you failed an assignment. You can't let it faze you; you have to tell yourself, I may not have done my best on this assignment, but I will do better on the next. And then actually work harder the next time, spend 10 minutes extra to studying or try a new study technique. The important thing to remember is that there are other assignments, this will not be the only grade you ever get. Teachers will give you many more opportunities to prove your knowledge and that one bad grade will slowly become forgotten. This was my philosophy last year and I got all A's in honors and 2 AP classes. Don't give up hope or stop trying, because you get one bad grade. There is always a way to improve and get better, but it will require extreme work and dedication. I know we all have sports and clubs that occupy are time outside of school, but thats where organization and planning come into play(look for a post coming really soon). My main point is that even straight A students get F's sometimes and you can't let that ruin your day or your overall drive. You have to keep moving, keep pushing forward and if your grades aren't exactly what you want work a little harder. You will get the grade that you deserve in the end, just let the education system play itself out.
