LOOK AT THOSE NOTES

Whenever people tell me about my… presence here on tumblr, they almost overwhelmingly bring up this decades old drawing, which, yeah, I love trans Dave too, but for the love of god, take this new version instead.

a note to all witches ⚝

☽O☾

Please reblog if you’re a witch of one year, five years, 10 years or even just considering making the transition into a magickal life. I’d like to make more witch friends that I can chat with here on tumblr, impart knowledge with, send gifts to, receive gifts, meet in person, learn with, laugh with, and genuinely have good conversations with. This is not about gaining popularity, so please scroll on if that is your motive.

Only reblog if you truly want friends in the witch community to do these things with. 

When You Reblog:

Be sure to look through the notes and add those who you find interest in or any random user and start up a conversation! Or even send them an ask about their blog, about them, ask questions, get to know one another

This community needs to strengthen itself through companionship, we’re all brothers and sisters of the craft, whether it’s Wicca, Santeria, Shamanic magick, Angelic magick, Hoodoo, etc.. We all hold so much ancient knowledge imparted on us throughout the centuries and our past lives, whether your guides come from Lemuria or Atlantis, whether you’ve learned Shamanic magick through family, Santeria from your mother, whether you’re a Wise One, an Indigo; we all hold the key to our Akashic Records, and we should develop friendships with those who also know these things because how magnificent is it to share such a bond with someone we’ve only just met?! At least, in this lifetime anyway. 

So please, let’s strengthen our bond. I don’t care if you’re 15 or 65. I’d like more friends who share a common interest/lifestyle that is such an important part of my life. 

A few tips to getting on top of your education early on

I’m assuming that most of you have already started school (I haven’t yet) and it’s already been a while so school will eventually become stressful again. So I’m back with a few tips that I hope all of us can test out together:

1. If you haven’t already done it, review all the notes you’ve written in class so far. Stop postponing it, and fix those notes! Look up extra information about important points raised in class!

2. Related to number 1, ask your lecturer if you have problems. If you can’t find what something means, or more information about something, ask your lecturer to give you references you could consult.

3. If you haven’t done this already, either set up colour-coded binders for each of your classes or do the same digitally (I suggest one note, each class a different tab). You’ll thank yourself.

4. Stop postponing your readings! Give yourself a balanced schedule where you get rest and your readings done. (and if you work don’t over do it! I really admire your hard work but take care of yourselves as well)

5. Make it a point to clean out your bag every week or 2 because the bottom of your bag will soon look really nasty, trust me.

6. This last one is not really advice, but I want youto know that even if you take a nap and sleep long hours at night, don’t ever feel guilty about it. If you’re tired your brain won’t process the information and you’re losing sleep for nothing.

I was inspired by the many other posts on studyblr, but as long as someone reads this and feels inspired to study, my job in the studyblr community is achieved.

For those who haven’t yet started, you can also follow some of these tips!

Let’s work towards making this world a better place, one good grade after another.

Why “Aesthetic Studying” Works For Me

I’m sick today (like properly sick, I’ve been up since 2am with a bucket beside me the whole time) so obviously I don’t feel much like studying, but I had some thoughts and I figured now was a good time to ramble.

So. “Aesthetic studying”, that is taking ages writing out your notes perfectly in pastel colours, spending a long time organising your desk before you do any actual work, etc, gets a bad reputation among many studyblrs. And hey, sometimes they have a point- if you’re spending all your time worrying about whether or not your notes look pretty then you won’t be actually revising those notes, and really how your desk looks isn’t as important as how much time you spend actually working at that desk.

However, in the last year or so I’ve found that it really does help me. Here are my reasons:

  • I am a very visual learner, and so rewriting my notes genuinely does help me- of course it’s not the only way I revise, but for me it works. I could just rewrite them all messily (so long as they’re readable) but I find that making them look nice is my main motivation to actually revise. I am a very ambitious person, but it’d be so easy to just… not revise. But I like pretty colours! I like bubble writing! It makes me actually want to spend time revising.
  • It calms me down. My desk doesn’t have to be perfect, but keeping it clean and neat and full of calm colours and nice images makes me feel far less overwhelmed than I do when my desk is messy and cluttered. This isn’t the case for everyone of course, but this is why “aesthetic studying” works for ME, so whatever.
  • It makes looking back at previous notes more pleasant. I find I actually want to reread and study from old notes if I’ve rewritten them to make them look nice. Again, it makes me feel less overwhelmed and more like i have everything under control.
  • The *~*studyblr aesthetic*~* keeps me motivated in general. For me, that aesthetic is usually based on a book or film I like-during my GCSEs, for example, it was often The History Boys. It’s a bit childish, but honestly it helps me to make my notes and my surroundings visually reminiscent of those books, films, characters, etc that make me want to study.

So yeah. It should go without saying that if you spend all your time taking artsy pictures for your studyblr rather than actually studying then that won’t be beneficial for your grades, but I feel like for many of us there is a place for aesthetic studying, and I wanted to explain my own reasons :)
