Any advice for procrastination, perfectionism, and exam anxiety?
I'm a huge perfectionist but I procrastinate a lot and I worry about tests a lot especially more recently, becoming anxious about exams and panicking when there's just one or two questions I have a hard time answering.

I'm a perfectionist, too. It's horrible, I know. <:^/

My best advice: Choose one question on multiple-choice exam that you're struggling with, but the subject itself you're doing alright in. After a few extra predetermined minutes of working on it (like two minutes more you'd usually spend on a question)...stop trying to solve it. Give up on that one question. Choose your best guess. Then, try to forget that one little quesiton and move on. Later, get that test back and see that anything less than an A+ that lets you pass is PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE, and tell yourself you did a good job. Remind yourself that nobody is perfect. And, reason with yourself. Is that 100% REALLY worth the mental anguish you could've spared yourself and gotten a 90% instead? Do this for several tests, just one question. You'll probably get it wrong most of the time, but due to chance you might get it right. Either way, purposefully telling yourself it's okay to get a question wrong will help you loosen up. It should remind you that you don't HAVE to be a perfectionist to be happy and to get by in school. ^_^ If you're anything like me, after you mostly break the habit of being a perfectionist, you might just see your grades start to improve! Because, in theory, the less you worry, the more relaxed you will be. And the more relaxed you are, the better your grades will be.

And for procrastination, it helps to identify WHY you're procrastinating. Is it because you're worried about it and don't want to face the stress? Because you're bored with the subject/class? Because you dislike it? Or because you don't feel very happy and want to cheer yourself up with random distractions? In any case, asking someone to remind you to study should help.

And for the exam anxiety, I find it helps to look back on past report cards and note how many PASSING GRADES you've gotten over the years. DON'T look at if they're A's or C's, just note if they're passing or failing grades. Remembering that you've gotten this far and have taken literally hundreds of exams and passed them should boost your self-esteem a little and remind you that you can and will do well on your next exams. ^_^

I think some people already know this, because it might have been mentioned or just hinted at once or twice, but I just want to come out and say it, because I'm tired of people categorising me, so I'm going to say it myself. I'm going to say it because I want to, and feel it's the right thing to do.

I'm gay.

And that's it. I'm gay. But it shouldn't be a big deal, because I'm a human. I'm still human. It doesn't matter who I am. Like Connor Franta said, "Race, religion, gender, sexuality, we are all people."

Hey, dude, that's awesome. I'm glad you're comfortable enough with yourself to be this chill.
