I want to practice constant awareness of my activities but they are just too complicated and quick for me to keep up with them. Could I get suggestions on how I could do well at school and still practice constant mindfulness of my activities?

Mindfulness whilst busy is not so difficult.Sure you may not be able to note every individual movement etc,but what you can do is just be mindful of the task at hand.If you have to write an essay just be mindful of that task.Don't think about your next class,what you are going to do at lunch break or how well your footie team will do on the weekend.
As was suggested above,finding a local meditation group near you will be an advantage.
Suffering is asking from life what it can never give you.

So, you say that just concentrating on your work is mindfulness too?
