HOW TO DO WELL IN SCHOOL (EVEN WHEN YOU’RE NOT “SMART”)

School is fully underway for most of us, and whether you’re in person, homeschooling, or online, we all want to do well in school and get good grades! For some people, learning comes naturally and they don’t really need to work hard to succeed. Others (most of us!) have to work hard and do a lot of studying to get good grades. I’m one of the top students in my class but it definitely doesn’t come naturally to me!

My hope for this post is that you feel encouraged that you can do well! I’m going to share some practical tips for getting good grades and doing well in school that I hope will help you (: These are things that have helped me go from low b’s to high a’s, and while it might require some hard work, you’ll be a straight a student in no time!

may playlist (ft. workout music)

hey frens! welcome back to christina and camera (if you’re new, HEY!! welcome to the tribe ๐Ÿ’›)

can you believe it’s already may?

I sure can’t! sure, it feels like we’ve been following “safer at home” guidelines for a long time, but when I realize that it’s almost halfway through 2020 I am blown away! how crazy is that??

anyway, today I’m sharing my fifth playlist of the month. if you’re new, every month this year so far I’ve been sharing a new playlist (I’m running out of ideas now though so if you have any playlist theme ideas share them with me!!)

this month’s playlist theme is workout music because I’ve been sharing a lot of posts related to health/food/fitness lately and thought it went well together.


note: I did my best to make sure that all songs I included are 100% clean (and I personally don’t like to listen to music full of nasty language/innuendo anyway) but I can’t recommend all of the other songs by each artist (as I haven’t gone through each of them). while the songs I included are clean, not every song by each artist might be. just a little warning ๐Ÿ™‚

I might share another workout playlist later this year because this isn’t even the whole thing and I’m constantly adding new songs!

so, without further ado: my current workout playlist (well, ten of my favorite songs from it) !


what’s on your workout playlist? do you like these songs?
