HOW I IMPROVED IN HIGH SCHOOL.

Published

on

        I am a high school graduate. I never really struggled with passing exams as a young student till I became a high schooler.it always seemed like there was always homework to be done, a test to study for and so much crap that didn’t seem to get done on time and good. Till I spoke to one of my teachers and I took his advice.  He told me some things and I learnt more in the course.so I have put together what helped me go through high school and get the grades I wanted to. I am hoping you will find them helpful.

1. Have a positive attitude and participate in class.

Your fellow students want to help you succeed as much as you want to see them succeed. So smile to your colleagues, talk to them like you need to and  be friendly.

Do not just sit. Engage , Ask ,Challenge and be challenged . Be fully present . It is a fraction of your life. It matters

2. Make sacrifices.

I took physics, chemistry, biology and math so my hands were  full most of the time. I had to find time in the middle of the night, early mornings and extended my sleep time and holidays too. I am  going to study Medicine  in university .I know it is going to be very challenging and there are more sacrifices to be made. At the end day It didn’t hurt to look back and say ” hey I hustled really hard and made it.”  If I had not worked hard and sacrificed how I did then I would feel guilty and unaccomplished . Who wants that ?

3. Familiarize yourself and make it a part of your life.

All those atoms, wars, protons, hormones and anatomy isn’t what you really live with in the normal world.Why not connect what you are studying with your life. There is this chemistry formula for finding pH of buffer solution that I couldn’t cram. so I put together a sentence that assisted me very well. I wont tell you because it was super weird.

4. Manage your time properly.

And don’t waste others’ time. Better early than late. If there is anything that takes your time, then be sure to make it wait for you instead. For example, our teachers would call us and keep us waiting for like 30 minutes. So some of us would carry our  summaries and keep reading as we waited. And almost everyone soon adopted the habit.

5. Do it when it’s hot.

Have you ever tried washing a two-week dirty plate? Yes, I get the feeling .so the same goes for school work. if you keep an assignment undone for two weeks or more unless it is a project it then becomes a liability. So try your best and do assignment and homework asap.

How about starting now.

6. Do one thing at time.

yes, just like that. the way to do this is to have a planner. plan ahead  how your day is going to go and include the tiny chores like buying tissue paper and you are most likely not going to just sit there. Know your class time-table and plan your day in accordance with it.

7. Map out your life.
You should have goals. there is no way you are toiling without a goal. Whether it is to get a good GPA or to get to the university of your dreams. Just think of that as a reason for all the toil and you’ll know it is worth it.

8. Find the magic spot and time.

There is that place and time where you just settle.so experiment with a lot of places till you find it. For me my spot was the library and I tried as much as I could to carry all my equipment before I left for the library because nothing sucks like finally settling down then remembering you forgot a highlighter. Also you should know what your best time to study is. Is it afternoon, early morning or late at night. This brings us to the next tip.

9. Have the equipment

whether it is a book, a ruler, calculator or anything that you have to make reference from, you should at least know where to get them from. You can check free online websites which you can read or download your study materials.

10. Work on the areas you are weak at.

Studying something you know may be so fun and doing questions you enjoy too. But that won’t step up your grades. you should work on the areas that trouble you and that is the only way you can go from one group of grades to another.

HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES FOR ALL UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

Published

on

Holiday time ,

A time we have been looking forward to since school started! Blink and share this post if you can relate!

Fun holiday activities

I am a big pro-balance , i believe in late nights, early mornings and coffee but i also believe it is essential to lay back in the Bahamas and have someone bring you a Cool Mojito . So what do you do when you have a month or two of rest. Read On.
1.Rest
A bit Clichè right? But how many of us actually rest at least half of the time during the holiday?

While it is sometimes inevitable to reply that email, Attend that client, making time to take care of you, catch up on your favourite tv show or just sitting and breathing helps clear your brain and make you even more productive.

2. Learn a skill.

What a time to be Alive! Your next skill is literaly a few taps away. This skill can be a hobby you have been looking to get better at like sewing, singing, piano , cooking or something intergral in your career like history taking for new clinical rotation students or something you have wanted to do on the side( you have been talking about how you do not have time, and now Its here! ).

One of the founders of Afyatoon , an animation start-up that provides health education actually learnt how to animate during his summer holiday.

There are some things that are not taught in school and you are probably struggling with such as speaking in public , budgeting , dressing well, healthy living & more. Take time to train yourself on that.

3. Work on your side hustle
Balancing between studies and work is a challenge. Sometimes they are all demanding our time and energy. The holiday time therefore is a great time to focus on this thing , give it a mega push and this push will even save you the hustle when school starts.

 

4. Learn, explore and grow.
It is really eye-opening to learn a new thing or get to understand a certain topic . This can be a great time to do that. There is vast majority of knowledge and information on blogs, social media and in the actual world for you to learn .

Be curious, google , check out some you tube videos . But most of Enjoy your holiday .

 

What are you doing this holiday?

4 Tips for successfull Business In Agriculture For Beginners..

Published

agribussiness sucess tips

I have always heard national leaders claim that Agriculture is the backbone of Tanzania. Infact I wrote a couple of essay discussing this same a few year back in secondary school.
However, I have seen more backs deformed, callous on their hands and accidents where you cultivated your leg instead of the land than I have seen these same people afford to treat any of these conditions.
I have also been hearing that farmers in the west are rich and unbothered.
But then do you think such farmers cultivate acres of land ,wait for rain (fingers crossed ) , uproot weeds, harvest and sell to the next buyer that can pay them something close to half their children’s school fees?
Agriculture is a pretty lucrative sector. And if you aim in these areas , you might make a fortune.

1.Quality
There is a big market we are not accessing in the western countries because of standard barriers. A large number of crops we produce are of a good enough quality. But what about the end products? Can they cross the Jk.Nyerere airport without causing a security shut down? Another issue that hinders these products is packaging. Poor packaging makes a product look cheap and not reliable.

2.Processing and Storage
Why do we pay these timewasters so much.
Because they process raw products. Turning sisal to .. and selling finished products has higher profit . . Plus how do you expect to make much of a profit when everyone is trying to sell the same thing before it rots. These products need to be stored well too so that their value stays and can be sold even after the season is over.

FAST MONEY IDEAS AND NOT TOO FAST

3.WHAT WOULD YOU FIND IN DOHA THAT IS IN KHARTOUM. ?
What is trending?
If you want to have a large market, go for products that are widely used in different places and some trending crops. Think Chia seeds, strawberries , pepper etc.

You can also contact restaurants for tenders so you have a market right away.
Let me let you in on a little secret a farmer told me.You do not need acres to farm. A green house is a perfect way to produce extremely quality crops that could sell in Antarctica for a million dollars . There is also an option of renting a farm .
That’s it fellaz ,As this weather moves you to cultivate other people, may you consider trying out crops. This is because agribusiness is worth investing in although it has not succeed to be as attractive as network marketing.
