My Advice for HS Students with Learning Disabilities

Hey, my loved ones.

If you’re new on my blog, I’m Shabria and thank you for taking the time to read my blog post. And if you’re day one reader, thank you for coming back for another blog post, really do appreciate it.

So, on today’s blog post I wanted to give my advice and tips to both middle and high school students who are struggling with their learning disability and how to overcome it. To the ones that may not know this, I do have a learning disability, I have dyscalculia, it’s difficulty with numbers (i.e. basic math, mental math, counting money in public/figuring out sale prices), and I have a hard time comprehending tasks/instructions without thoroughly explaining it me to my understanding (I later found out that I’m a visual learner). I also have an speech implement, where I mispronounced words sometimes.

For 7 years, when I was school I struggled with my learning disability and what I went through, so I wanted to share my advice for any preteen and/or teenager who’s struggling academically.

Advice #1: Please ask for help. If you’re way behind with your schoolwork, ask or tell your teacher that you don’t understand the assignment or homework instead of not doing anything about it. Either ask in class or after class or school.

Advice #2: Get organized. If you have a hard time staying focus in class, then this is very important. Buy a weekly planner and write down your school assignments and highlight the very important tasks to get them done.

Advice #3: Write down your goals. I remember when I was in school and I still do this as an adult, if you want accomplish your goals in during your school year; write them down on sticky notes or in your notebook. And after when you accomplishment them, you check them off and congratulate yourself.

Advice #4: Ignore people who make fun of your learning disability. Now, this is a little hard to do but you really have to. They don’t know your struggles and what you go through, academically. While you’re working on your academic weakness, they’re probably struggling as well but they don’t want to admit it or they’re skipping class or school. I remember my former classmates who made fun of my learning disability, didn’t even graduated with me because they waited to the last minute to get their class credits or trying to be cool and not care about their academics.

Advice #5: Figure out what you’re really good at while you’re in school. If you don’t know right now, it’s okay because you have plenty of time to figure out.

Advice #6: Don’t be ashamed of your learning disability. Letting you know that you can accomplish amazing things in your life, always believe in yourself and have self confidence.

So, those are all of my advice/tips for you. I really hope you take these tips into consideration. Thank you so much for reading xo.

How To Save Up For Christmas | 14-week Money Saving Challenge 2018

Hey, my loved ones!

If you’re new reading on my blog, I’m Shabria. And if you’re my day 1 reader, thank you for coming right back for a new post *virtual hugs and kisses*.

So, on today’s post I’m going to help you get started on your money saving challenge for Christmas shopping. Yes, ladies and gentlemen Christmas is literally around the corner and you probably didn’t get started on saving for Christmas shopping, haven’t you? Yeah, you haven’t (LOL), so I’m going to help you to get started (you’re very welcome). Now, if you haven’t started yet, now it’s the perfect time to get started. And I’m just letting you know, that I’m not financial adviser or anything. I’m just someone who has this money saving method and wanted to share.

So, first step is to get an envelope to put your cash in of course. You make a cash envelope if you want it to be super cute, there’s plenty of videos on making a stylish cash envelope on Youtube and I’ll give you the link. And you label the envelope ‘Christmas Shopping’ or ‘Black Friday Shopping’, so it will be easier to remind you. Then, think about on how much you’re planning on saving in your cash envelope. Are you saving $25, $50, $75, or $100 each paycheck or from your side hustle job? Once you figured out on how much you want to save up, keep a tab on it each paycheck on the back of the envelope, week after week until Black Friday shopping. If you want an example, I found two examples that you can do.

Example #1:

Week 1: $50

Week 2: $50

Week 3: $50

Week 4: $50

Week 5: $50

Week 6: $50

Week 7: $50

Week 8: $50

Week 9: $50

Week 10: $50

Week 11: $50

Week 12: $50

Week 13: $50

Week 14: $50

Total: $700

Example #2:

Week 1: $100

Week 2: $100

Week 3: $100

Week 4: $100

Week 5: $100

Week 6: $100

Week 7: $100

Week 8: $100

Week 9: $100

Week 10: $100

Week 11: $100

Week 12: $100

Week 13: $100

Week 14: $100

Total: $1,400

You got the idea of it, right? Even if you have bills to pay or whatever, just split your money and put it your cash envelope. I hope this blog post helped you out a bit with your money saving challenge for Christmas. Thank you so much for reading my blog post and take care xo.

Not many would know but I love photography. I’ve started taking pictures since I was in 8th grade and that’s how it begun for me.

My No Spend September & October Month

Hey loves.

So I already know what you’re thinking, ‘Shabria, are you serious going to do a bi-monthly no spend challenge? That’s crazy!’ Nah, not really, this is a piece a cake to me. Because I rarely spend my money UNLESS I really need something and I really don’t need anything. Plus I’m working from home and I don’t make money enough to ball. But I’m also doing a bi-monthly closet clean as well, I’m getting rid of my gently used clothes and accessories adding it to my poshmark closet (poshmark closet: itsshabriag29) and I’m also giving it away to my goodwill and savers stores near me. I think this is a great challenge for everyone to control their spending habits; its one of those ‘needs vs wants’ deals, like, ‘do I need this or do I need that.’ I hope everyone does this cool exercise and I know you can do it.

Happy reading and follow my blog for more posts xo

Comment below, if you would do this challenge in the future?
