Hey lovelies. So yesterday, as I was just being my scroll-y little self, I came across this post - and figured that was a goddamn good idea.
BUT. But my goals weren’t the same (they would’ve been fun, but not really what I need right now), and as such I’d need to adapt most of the items.
Being also my lazy self, I just decided to start a new list from scratch. Feel free to use it, abuse it, do it, share it. But if you do start it, I’d love it if you told me how it works out for you! Tag me, PM me, I’m yours to do as you please.
Having said that, this is based off that post (hence the credit), but I’m starting my own 30 day challenge to UNFUCK MY LIFE.
(You know nothing, Jon Snow.)
Here we go.
Get a journal. Open it. Write. Be it a line. Just your name. A sentence. A quote. Be it five pages and keep going. Doodle. Hate your hadwriting and then smile because it’s perfect for you.
Make a study plan. A realistic study plan. Print it. Complete it.
Don’t just sit around studying in your pajamas. I know it’s comfy, but get up, get dressed, shine that fucking awesomeness.
Clean your room (Yes, even the pile of clothes hidden in the closet. And under the bed. And the ones forgotten in the bathroom.)
Call old friends. Just say hi. Go from there.
Go to bed early. Count sheep to fall asleep.
Get up early too. Spring from bed and don’t look back.
Go for a walk, with company if possible. Your Ipod counts too.
Go to the library. Check out books you’ll like. Check out some you won’t either. Read them all.
Watch the news. Talk about them. Discuss them. Accept different points of view.
Cut your hair. Buy a new pair of shoes. Of pants. Eyeliner. Paint your nails. Look in the mirror and go “yeeeeeah, I’d hit that”. Even if you stay at home all day.
Compliment your mom. Hug your dad. Thank your grandparents. Blow a kiss to your sister. Ruffle your brother’s hair. Squeeze your dog and rub his belly.
Breathe. In. Out.
Go out. Be happy. Show off your legs even if they’re short. Even if you have cellullite. Even if that means wearing a pair of tights because it’s cold out. Flip your hair and smile.
Go out. Drive. Be scared.
Choose your outfit the day before. Even if you change your mind in the morning.
Meet up with your best friend. Be your sarcastic self, they love it.
Update your playlist.
Find a new TV show to watch. Make it a documentary.
Say hello to people.
Go downtown. Take pictures. Panoramic pictures, ugly pictures, blurred pictures, selfies. Don’t erase any. Not just yet.
Go out to get coffee. Drink tea instead.
Wear a skirt to college. Rock those hot boots too.
Buy chewing gum. Offer it around, it’s okay if you’re totally ripped off.
Have a meal with your mom.
Go shopping. Don’t buy anything.
Change your profile picture.
Take a shower. Kiss the mirror and dance naked. If it jiggles, it’s because it’s there.
Watch the sunrise. Watch the sunset. Feel small. (bonus)
2/30 Day Studyblr Challenge by @hayley-studies -
A photo of your study space
This is my desk, if my back isn’t hurting I’ll be working her, otherwise I’m stuck in bed because I have really bad back problems. Usually my laptop is in the space where my French notebook is (on top of my Japanese text book) but it’s on my bed at the moment because my back is starting to hurt so I was laying down, got up to take this photo super quick. The lower part of my desk slides out and that is where I work with my laptop on the top (you can see my mouse pad poking out). On my wall I have my NaNoWriMo poster from supporting them a few years ago, I think two but I can’t remember. On the left I have tickets and memory-related things (I’ll also be putting photos on that side), on the right I have prints, and on the underside I’m putting business cards that I plan on using in the future or that I like the look of.
And yes that is a flip knife on my desk, I keep it with me at all times in my apartment because I live in a dangerous area and I’ve already had an attempted break in since I moved in.
4/30 Studyblr Challenge by @hayley-studies - A photo of your most recent work
I’ve restarted my Japanese learning from scratch since I took such a large break from it, decided to start in a nice new notebook for motivation. Sorry this was uploaded a day late, I’m very sick and passed out earlier so please forgive me.
I’m trying out this minimalism challenge that I’ve seen floating around tumblr, but I’ve made a couple of changes to the original to add more of the ones that will give me real difficulty (Leave today unplanned). I know it’s not really a school- or study-related thing, but I know a lot of studyblrs do self-care things and this is definitely something I need!
So, the first day is no social media. I queued this post to post today, and after this I won’t be on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. etc. I’m not sure yet if I think of tumblr as social media (I know it probably is) so I guess we’ll see.
Let me know if anyone else is doing this! And may the new month bring amazing things.
I decided to include my notebooks since I use specific ones for specific things!
