    1. Don't underestimate your own ability to succeed. You will do fantastic!

    2. Don't underestimate how dumb your peers are, and how good they make you look in comparison. Seriously. The handful of students speaking up in class and saying something useful are the exception to the rule. Then there are a handful of really bright students who will never talk in class. The rest are dumber than you realize.

    Impossible. I swear of it.

    My only recommendation would be to set fake deadlines one week in advance of everything, since you've shared you've been having trouble with your mood, which presumably will affect your motivation. Maybe buddy up with a clear xxxJ who will help you stick to a schedule. Your mood affecting your motivation is the only legitimate concern you have.

    You are going to be one of the smartest in your class. To think otherwise is nonsense.

    if you speak up in class even once in a while you will automatically be better off than the majority.

    also usehername's fake deadlines. 3 days beforehand might be more realistic than a week, given Pness.
