Sometimes, homework can be stressful. Especially when it's a question like "2x^(2-11x+14) and you don't have a calculator at home. I mean, it's not like our math teachers intend to make us stress out and like, cry...they are just trying to teach us things that we may need one day. A commonly asked question when it comes to math would be Will I even ever need this in life?? But our math teachers always assure us that we will need them at one point in time. Whether you believe them or not, the homework is mandatory. If you don't do it, that's a lunch detention (or few) for you. Due dates obviously add to the stress, especially if you're a procrastinator like I am, and wait until the very last minute. It can be hard to turn in a 40 question worksheet by the next day, particularly when you have like 6 different homework assignments for that night. Let's say, on top of all of that, you do a sport or a club that consumes a lot of your time. It just adds to the stress. The solution to it all could be something as simple as creating a schedule. Instead of saying that you'll do it later or not doing it at all, make sure that you have set aside a certain time to do your homework, that way you don't forget to do it all. Then there is always the chance that you don't exactly know what you are doing, and have to go to tutoring the next day in order to get the work done. Well, if that's what it takes to finish your homework, I guess it's worth it. To break out of that procrastinator shell, you have to accept the fact that if you don't get your homework done, it could have a lot of consequences. Which is why it's best to take the time to actually do it.
