Hi, i love space, physics, the universe... so much. I've always wanted to go into astrophysics or something similar- but... Over the year and a bit i've been diagnosed with depression which has been oncoming for ages, my grades have dropped and no matter how much revision i do i can't get my scores any higher. Do you have any revision techniques for science and maths?
I’m sorry to hear you’re going through rough times, take care of yourself and know you’re worth the world c: first thing to do is make sure your school’s aware of your condition. Then you might benefit a lot from getting yourself into a routine for studying - try going at it for say 2 or 3 hours every weekday with a 15 minute break every hour to look at facebook and stretch your muscles and get some tea. Take the weekends off. As for how to study, best way to study maths and science is to read over a section of notes then practice questions on what you’ve read to get it solid in your head. Once you’ve got through all the notes you can take on some past exam papers. Don’t worry if you take twice as long to answer an old exam paper as you get in the final exams, you’ll be focussed and running on adrenaline in the real thing - though it’s good to work at cutting down the time as much as possible.
That’s what I recommend you try doing for studies, and make a checklist too so you know you’ve covered everything. Keep practicing and you’ll be fine :) Good luck and I hope you feel much better very soon ^^
Taking psych notes all day today and hopefully find the motivation to write my anthro essay. I ended up credit/no crediting my anthro course so the mark just has to be above a 50%, but my perfectionist self has to stress about everything so of course I want the essay to be good even though it doesn’t have to be.
Ended the day with some biology and physics. I had a really good day in physics class today. For once we were discussing something I already knew about, so when I was answering all the questions he asked before anyone else, a friend asked me how I knew all that. To say I felt good is a big understatement. I usually keep quiet in class. Shoutout to semiconductors ha-ha.
Since it’s Friday I’m rewarding myself with some movies. Just finished “Girl, Interrupted.” Fantastic film for those of you who have yet to see it!
Yesterday was spent in the Malmö city library studying and today will be spent studying as well. I’ve had a rough week so I really needed the weekend, I’m celebrating by partying with my friends tonight ✨✨
