Our blogger this week is Robert Pederson, a high school senior from Fairfield, Conn.
Right after school, your brain is still in school mode, still in the learning rhythm. Everything you learned that day is still fresh.
I used to come home and spend hours playing video games or hanging out with my friends on Facebook, until I realized there was homework to do. This made me very stressed. I nearly flunked my way out of school.
In my freshman year of high school, I befriended a junior who was a straight A+ student. I asked him what he did to keep his grades up. He told me that after school, he would get down to doing his homework within ten minutes of arriving home. I decided to do the same.
Now I do my homework within an hour of getting home from school. I saw my grades slowly go up from C’s to B’s To B+’s. This gave me a major confidence boost. And for good reason; I was doing homework the way it should be done.
Doing homework right after school is a must. I went from a below-average student to being a straight-A student in my senior year of high school.
