Hi geology girl!!!! Don’t worry, you’re not annoying, I’m here just for this!!!
The first thing is, try not to rush yourself! Things take time, and try to catch up again is difficult. I spent a year before entering uni without studying really hard, so when I entered uni it was pretty hard. I’m just taking my time and trying to do my best. Being organized will help you a lot, maybe looking at this post I wrote will help with that.
Also, use good books, take a look at these two pages: bozemanscience (a page of science videos) and science and maths books.
Try to make studying fun, so watching documentaries, writing your own notes, studying with other people… All that will make it more fun and you’ll see that you learn much much better.
Work everyday, that’s also really important, but don’t cram your brain with information because it will just go away as soon as it came in. Explaining what you’re learning to people who know nothing about that topic will help you realize if you’ve properly understood everything.
Make sure to take time for yourself. Do things that you enjoy with people you love, take time for yourself and ask for help when you need it.
Don’t be afraid of sciences. It is all a bunch of rules with a beautiful meaning, so try to think of it as a game, just like when you were a child! It can be all turned into a big, fun game. <3
That’s all, lovely, take care of yourself, study every day and keep being so sweet (also, OMG I want to go to Australia so desperately, how is it living there???)
