Hey guys! So I know Moleskin notebooks and Fineliners are great, but I know not everyone–including myself–can afford that. Here is a list of places where you can get inexpensive school supplies and still go out and get that A!

  • Walmart (where you can even shop by grade!)
  • Dollar Tree (everything is just $1!)
  • Dollar Days (where you or your school can buy in bulk!)
  • Discount School Supply (they have everything from pens to glue sticks and construction paper for pretty cheap!)
  • Passion for Savings (a great resources for price comparisons and coupons!)
  • Reliable (provides coupon codes and the “hot deals” of the day!)
  • School Pak (has clearance items and complete school packs and kits of school supplies!)

I hope this helps! Please feel free to add to this list!

Helpful Japanese Learning sites

Recently i have come across two sites that help me with my Japanese :D

[for some reason, i cannot digest katakana so these sites have really helped me to recognize them :) !! ]

For me, memorization is the way to go when learning something new so if its the same for you, check out one of these sites ^_^

Budoblr Resources

What great online resources do you guys use to supplement your own training? Of course there are mountains of books we could buy and months worth of videos on YouTube, but what websites, podcasts, ect. have really helped you in your own journey of discovery/ fun? Here are some of my favorite places to go.

I had to do this test for my Psychology class:

It’s actually pretty neat so I thought I’d share. (Apparently, my score on Compassion suggests that I’m neither overly concerned nor disinterested with the problems of others, limited to some individuals (perhaps friends and family) without extending to acquaintances or strangers, which is pretty accurate come to think of it. Does this make me a bad person?)

tipispip asked:

Hi love! Do you know the math website where you simply put in the problem and it will work it for you and show the steps and answers?

Hi!                                                                                                                            I think you mean this website. It’s called Wolfram Alpha and here’s a post about it. xx
