20mn

connard-cynique  asked:

My favorite fast food customer of all time have to be the guy who complained about spending 20mn in the queue waiting to order, had no idea what he wanted to order, took his sweet time to take a decision by reading the menu out loud, before complaining about people behind him being impatient. If I had a medal, it'd be for that guy.

Anyone else studying for midterms and looking for a study break snack ? I made these matcha 🍵 muffins three times in the last two weeks and they’re always a hit !

Matcha and berry muffins (makes 6) :

* 2/3 cup soy milk * 1 heaped tablespoon chia seeds (to replace the egg)
* 2 tablespoons lemon juice * ½ mashed banana * ¾ cup sugar or ½ cup natural sweetener (agave or maple syrup) // You can use less sugar if you like the strong bitter flavor of matcha
* 1 + ¾ cup whole wheat flour * 2 heaped teaspoons matcha
* 2 teaspoons baking powder * Handful of frozen or fresh berries

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Combine the wet ingredients (including the ½ mashed banana) in a bowl, whisk and let the mixture sit until the chia seeds form a gel and the lemon coagulates with the milk. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and make sure the matcha powder does not make lumps. Pour the wet ingredients in the wet ingredients’ bowl and stir well but do not over-mix. Then, pour in the soy milk mixture and stir together. Pour the batter into a muffin mold (I use a silicon one so the recipe is completely oil-free) and at the last minute add the berries on top of each muffin. Bake for about 20mn and let cool off before indulging in these vegan matcha muffins !

Also Harry arriving to Gare du Nord in Paris is meaning that he was like 20mn of walk away from me one hour before and I wasn’t aware of that and it means I haven’t a 6th sense about the boys and now I’m sad.

5 STUDY TIPS

Hi! Today I decided to give you 5 tips to make your studies more efficient!


1. DIVIDE

Divide your studies by 20mn to 50mn sessions. Between each session, take a little break. You have to know your limits, and the limits of your concentration. Don’t fight against tiredness, work with it.


2. ADAPT YOUR STUDY PLACE

Choose an adapted study place, a place where you won’t be disturbed. If you will pass your exams in a room full of other students, choose to study in the library. Just try to choose a similar place to your future exam’s conditions, it will help your brain to adapt to those conditions and it will become more efficient.


3. FIND YOUR PRIORITIES

Make an order of priority to your tasks. You need to take time when it’s really necessary. Create a study schedule to help you to organize your studies in months, weeks, and days. You will save a lot of time!


4. READ YOUR NOTES

Reading your notes soon after your class will make it clearer and anchor it in your mind. It will save time from your study sessions later!


5. DON’T RETARD YOUR REVISIONS

Study early in the day. Everyone is different, but it’s easier to focus early in the day. Tiredness won’t help you to memorize and understand.
