Hi, welcome to Study Branch! 

My name's Suha and I created this site to provide you with the best resources to help you with navigating high school and college admissions!

I'm currently a rising junior in High School and time and time again, I've seen my friends and peers clouded with negative emotions about their higher education. Some of them doubt themselves, some of them don't know what they're going to do for college, and others don't know how they're going to pay for it. 

My hope for Study Branch is to empower you with everything you might need to know as a high school student planning for your future. 

I'm writing some new posts soon, so stay tuned!

5 Steps to Eliminate Chronic Procrastination

In 2020 I made one New Year's resolution - and no it was not about my health - it was to stop procrastinating, or to "Take action".  As a rising sophomore in high school, I may not have as much to do as an adult, but the responsibilities are mounting! More schoolwork, extracurricular activities, sports, getting ready for my future, all while trying to maintain good relationships, happiness, and health.  Towards the end of 2019, I was a freshman which was around the same time TikTok became popular, and - need I say more? I was often sleep deprived because I wasted all my after school hours on my phone and then finally started working on homework late at night. It was procrastination at its finest.  I knew logically what I should do, but I couldn’t figure out how to motivate myself to do it.   Before January 2020 I decided that I was tired of living like this. I had procrastinated for months - at it didn't feel good.  Let me walk you through the 5 steps I took to
