What's happening? Rumor has it some of you are not feeling 💯. The circumstances are not normal so it's understandable that you don't feel like you did before this happened. The mind is an amazing generation machine. If you believe you are not happy, that's what it will generate. So, as you can see in the illustration, you can get in control of your thoughts and generate a new direction for your mind.
Reframing your behaviors or ideas goes a long way to improving your attitude and situation. You're not stuck at home right now, you're SAFE at home. Is this hard to accept? Yup. Determine what kind of person you will be. VOTE for your future. Choose a thought that will make you happy, healthy, and strong. You can do it. You can adapt. I have seen you do amazing things when you put your mind to it. NOTHING WILL HOLD YOU BACK WHEN YOU ARE DETERMINED!
I hope that helps. What's working for me is exercise, reading (books and what you write in the journal), painting, and learning as much as I can on Khan. Sounds lame? Maybe, but it's working. Stay focused on what you can control and skill that will increase your value.
Is this a dark time, or a fantastic opportunity to improve your abilities? Reframe it. Get after it.
Ok, Melissa, I see your point. So let's say I give you a 4 right now. Do you feel smarter? See? It's the process. When you complete a course, that is real value. Reflect on that.
Alaih, the SAT is meant for high school students. I'll be increasing the assignments on Khan. However, your best course of action is to go at your own speed as you complete grade 6, and then move through grade 7. Math is similar to art and weightlifting. Keep practicing so your skills stay sharp and ready. Be ok with making mistakes. Be patient with yourself. Use these concepts and you will find success. 😊
Abigail. You're the first person to write twice in a day. Ok, so you probably forgot to ask the question the first time. 🙄 Nevertheless, twice in a day, even if only a few minutes apart, is the effort that brings about success. I'll be taking home RVR and Raspberry Pi. More about that later. If there BOLTS are ready, I'll let you BORROW one because you are a responsible person. I'll need to review the checkout list.
That's all for now. Stay 514 strong and positive!
