Best School Tips

"Depending on where you go to school, most every class has all assignments due on Sunday Nights. So if you're taking multiple classes, assignments really add up if you procrastinate. My suggestion would be to mentally make everything due Thursday night, so you at least have a little bit of a buffer." (Fire fighter; 2013)
