    Let's Talk;

    I'm currently a senior in high school, and taking government which is required to graduate, I've been stressing lately over passing it, because I'm an audible learner, if I hear it enough times I get it, but my government class is a strictly drill and kill class. We take notes, do vocab, do worksheets, do test. There is almost no audible parts of the class since we're constantly working.

    So my question to you today is; What do you do, when you're stressing out over classes, how do you handle the work load and learning the information?


    My question to you if you don't have school or don't have stressful classes; What are you doing this weekend?

    Listen to music while playing games or make beats. Drake calms me down, games exercises my brain so I'm not entirely doing nothing.

    Much rather be taking that class, reading text book, and doing worksheets definitely isn't how I learn.

    I'm seriously ADHD when it comes to reading/studying.

    I'll start reading something, my mind will trail off to various things, and I'll be thinking about something else, I'll still be following the lines though. By time I get to the bottom of the page I relize I haven't been reading, and I'll have to start the whole page over again.

    Audio books on the subject.

    Or perhaps finding a private tutor.

    Private tutor for the last 20 days of school. Do want.

    And I don't know where I'd find audio books.

    During the notes, draw celtic art/sleep/do whatever instead of taking notes. Substitute it for anything that's optional in the class. Try this in a low-stress easy class first, then move it up to all of em if it works for you. I picked it up a couple years ago, and it truly helps "no-learners" like me who can't learn with any method. I seriously never study for a thing, because I pretty much can't, but drawing instead of doing actual work somehow gets the stuff into my head.

    It's supposed to work by changing your mind to think heuristically instead of categorically. Instead of having information compartmentalized in your brain you have it floating everywhere, which lets you form connections like the brain does naturally. The most important part is, you're not screwed when you have a hole in your knowledge, something you don't know or haven't studied or forgot. The web of information fills in the holes logically.
    If you don't know how to do a question on a test, then someone who compartmentalizes everything is screwed, but someone who's built thoughts instead of data can figure it out. You can literally go into a test not knowing anything, and build up your knowledge of the subject from the test from scratch. It's also like a BS 6th sense, it lets you make up something you don't know extremely convincingly because the web fills in the gap with your mind's existing ideas. This would be useful for a literature class if you completely forgot a section of a book.

    Goddamn, that was an essay. But it's helpful, especially for people who aren't completely mentally sound (most if not all of us on this site).

    Celtic art links:
    Celtic art - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Celtic symbols from the celtic cross to the celtic tattoo
    CELTIC ART FORMS

    It's what I and a whole bunch of others do to manage this shit. Hope it helps.
