Let’s conquer those APs together.
As we approach two solid weeks of AP testing or other dandy exams and projects for you young’uns, please take some time throughout these next few weeks to check in with your friends and look out for them. See how they are doing, and don’t forget to take care of yourself, too. Spend some time to chill, relax, breathe, smile, and have some fun amidst your flashcard-making and intense highlighting.
Even if you have a lot of studying, be sure to take some breaks–they will replenish your brain power. It might seem like there is too much to do and too little time for it all, but focus on completing one task at a time, and you’ll make it. I believe in you. Oh, and drink lots of water to stay hydrated–weird fact: Did you know that your brain is around 80% water?
This can be a stressful time for many, but just remember that we’re all going through this together, and we’re all here for one another! :o)
In our ROCK trainings, one of the things we’ve learned is that our friends are often the greatest resources we have who can help alleviate any situation simply by being there, listening, and chatting. That’s basically what ROCK is, too. I encourage you to embody the ROCK motto especially in these next few weeks and Reach Out to those around you (and maybe even to those that you don’t know very well), show them that you Care, and get to Know more about them. You don’t have to be an “official rock” to exhibit these qualities. In fact, I’m sure all of you already do this in your daily lives.
With that said, don’t hesitate to call up a friend and tell them to be your rock. Each and every one of us can be someone else’s rock, and just being one person’s rock can make all the difference.
Feel free to contact the rocks listed on our website (https://rockatgunn.wordpress.com/) as well.
Do your best and forget the rest. Thank you for reading this letter, and I wish you good luck. Go out and kick some butt! :o)
