The AP Lifestyle!
Ask any successful AP student of any subject and you'll find that there is a lifestyle to collegiate life.  The AP/Collegiate Lifestyle is a delicate balance between commitment and life!  You literally plan your fun and your time to play around exploration of your studies. Your studies are one of your top priorities daily.  If you are new to the AP lifestyle, try to find friends who are doing what you are doing.  Be sure to develop your study habits/schedule quickly, andlet everyone know what you need to do in order to be successful.  Don't forget to plan your fun!  Don't forget that even how you study can be your "play" time if your mind is set that what you are doing is the right thing for you.  You must allow yourself time for play - whatever you define that "playtime" to be!  Mine is playing with my daughters-swimming, singing, dancing, chasing baby chicks, etc.  Adopt the AP Lifestyle and you will be successful!
