Eat chocolate when your heart wants it and kale salad when your body needs it. Wear high heels on Saturday and walk barefoot on Sunday. Live high and low. Move and stay still. Embrace all sides of who you are. Be brave, bold , spontaneous and loud and let that complement your abilities to find silence, patience, modesty and peace.AIM FOR BALANCE. Make your own rules and follow your own path and don’t let anybody tell you how to live according to theirs.

Top 10 ways To Have Fun And Maintain Good Grades
The following are the top 10 ways to have fun and maintain good grades.
Be Conscious Of Your Health
You may been wondering why I had to start with this and how this relates to having fun and maintaining good grades, but you are probably not thinking far.
I choose to start with this point because a sick person will not even have the brain power to read this article right now.
Likewise, all other points I will raise after this can only be achievable if you are in perfect health.
On my article on “The sure guides to examination preparation” I discussed this elaborately.
You might want to check it now. Don’t worry, I will wait patiently for you.
Therefore, you have to eat well, sleep well and participate in exercises.
Don’t forget to take naps as studies have proven that a 30 minutes nap a day can help further strengthen you for the days work.
You Got To Be Responsible
A university is not a secondary school.
It’s a different terrain entirely where you are on your own.
Therefore, take charge of your life, accept responsibility for your actions, be accountable for your results and take ownership of your mistakes.
Maturity comes when you stop making excuses and start making changes.
You must take personal responsibility.
You cannot change the circumstances , the seasons or the wind, but you can change yourself.
That is something you have to take charge of.
Learn To Be Organized
Being organized is simply being in control.
You will never change your life until you change something you keep doing daily.
The secret of success is found in your daily routine.
Therefore, if your routine is highly disorganized, it means there will not be a single line of success story about you.
Organization is not about perfection.
It’s about efficiency, reducing stress and clutter, saving time and money and improving the overall quality of your life.
You Got To Have Fun
Never ever underestimate the importance of having fun.
People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
In fact, what’s the point of being SMART if you are not having fun?
Life is to short to worry about stupid things.
There is nothing bad in going out with friends and watching movies, participating in different sport activities, play games and even attend parties.
This will make you relax well.
Therefore have fun, regret nothing and most importantly, don’t let people bring you down.
Ways To Have Fun And Maintain Good Grades In School – Stay Confident
What you think of yourself is much more important than what people think of you.
Therefore, why not stay humble, original and real?
Please note that confidence isn’t walking in a room with your nose in the air and thinking you are better than everyone else.
It’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone in the first place.
Therefore, know that confidence is a practice and a skill.
It’s not about being an extrovert and it’s certainly not a personality trait.
Everyone has the ability to be confident in any given situation with the right mindset and the right practice.
As such, you don’t need to be intimidated by other people.
Ensure You Are Successful In Class
On my post on how to manage exam stress effectively, I hinted on this.
Therefore, you have to ensure you take your classes seriously.
Attend all your classes for the semester and in the case where you where not able to meet up, ensure you don’t neglect it.
Find a reliable friend you can trust and take notes from.
Never allow someone to copy your notes for you as I have stressed on How to remember 900% of what you have read easily.
Follow up on all your assignments and ensure you do them even though it is not to submitted.
Study ahead of the class and participate in class brainstorming.
Make sure you listen attentively as well as make your opinions heard when asked to.
Ways To Have Fun And Maintain Good Grades In School – Make Friends
Blessed are those who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God’s best gifts.
It involves many things but above all, the power of getting out of one’s self and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another.
There is one thing better than making a new friend and that is keeping the old one.
Therefore, make new friends, keep the old ones likewise.
One is silver while the other is Gold.
Quickly before I forget, when someone’s purpose in your life is done, let them go.
Make space in your life for new friend opportunities and love.
Ways To Have Fun And Maintain Good Grades In School – Explore
In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks and I Know my friend and brother [Egbon Cedric Osasere] will agree with this.
Nobody owns the world, therefore feel free to explore it.
Some of us don’t even know our school environment and that’s too bad.
Why not take a tour around school one weekend and free your mind of some stress.
You Have To Study Smart
Most times after engaging in some fun activities, we get carried away.
Nevertheless, there is a room to study smart and well.
Like I Stressed on how to study effectively and efficiently, learn to find the time your mental alertness works optimally and fix your reading time.
Avoid Cramming as much as possible and even though you must, learn to do it the right way.
Manage your time well and in no distant time you will be done studying all your semester materials.
Prepare And Be ready
After all the study activities, remember that there is a “JUDGEMENT DAY”.
The judgement day talked about here is your Exam Day.
Therefore, you got to be ready, eat properly, keep yourself fit and be sharp.
In conclusion, your final say after following the things taught here us that “Yes I got good grades and Yes I have a life.
Finding the balance between having fun and maintaining good grades isn’t difficult to achieve and it only makes you a better person.
Therefore, if you have not been enjoying yourself you are not too late to begin.
That’s the much I can take on the topic.
