  • It was hard for me. Im in my 2nd year of college and it was so bad. I had to write everything down and then go online and print out notes. I even had to record one of the teachers(he was the only one that let me record him) all I can say is eat a good big breakfast, but not too big or youll be sleeping in class and bring something sweet to much on. Sweet or sour things always woke my butt up

  • I had to alot myself about double the time homework and papers and such used to take me when I was going to school and pregnant. That way I had extra time to figure stuff out and if my mind wandered, I had time to realize it and pull it back.
