I’m pretty sure I’m a 7.

Remember the colours, styles, names, adjectives, hair, etc is JUST to help introduce people to the idea of a gender spectrum instead of a two-gender binary system! :) You could be a 1 with super short hair and feel very very female, or an 8 with long hair whose favourite colour is pink but still feels very “male”. :)

NOTE-TAKING TIPS!

heyyy!! heres a quick post explaining some of my fav note-taking methods and some tips that i find useful. these are for taking notes from a textbook :^ ). lets get started!!

where to start -

  • my textbook chapters are subdivided into three or four parts so i mark in the margin which subchapter i’m at. this helps alot when i look back on my notes and want to find a specific subchapter/topic. i usually write it in highlighter so its even more noticeable. plus idk it looks kind of cute hehe.
  • then i use the subchapter title provided by my textbook and write that usually in big blue ink. i always just use the textbook titles when making my notes.

advice -

  • draw diagrams, draw diagrams, draw diagrams!!! i know sometimes i feel super lazy when i make my notes and don’t want to draw some diagrams but i force myself to!! its so worth it omg. idk i can really remember the material better once its visualized. with my teachers i get bonus marks for including diagrams so thats a plus!
  • write important notes in the margin! if i really want to remember a certain point i note it down in the margin so it really stands out. i can remember these points much much better and when looking at my notes my eyes go straight to the points.
  • use a different colour for vocabulary. idk if this is obvious this is just what i do. i pick a different colour for vocabulary and this helps me remember the definitions a lot better. 
  • don’t use too many supplies. i’ve tried to colour code my notes with 6 or 7 different colours and omg it takes way way too long. i usually use one black pen, one blue pen, a highlighter, and a coloured fineliner. this way i don’t have to cap and uncap pens over and over again which actually wastes a lot of time hehe.
  • spice your notes up! sometimes to motivate myself to start making notes i search tumblr for some of those cute banner idea posts. i use these in my notes because i find them kinda fun to draw?? im lame sry.

other posts i find helpful -

thx!! -

ok i hope this quick post helps you out at least a little!! make your notes the way it works for you obvi.  also tag your posts with #studywright and i’ll reblog all your posts : ^) have a good day!! xx

French spelling rules - The Plural

Okay so, I was going through my old school stuffs and I found an interesting paper about some spelling rules from back when I was still learning how to write (I’m french btw), so I thought why not sharing it?
