“Memories will flood behind us, the lake house no longer filled to the brim. As quiet as the moment we first walked in—and we’ll sit on this hill. Feeling the stillness that exists.
And then we end—we end where we started.
Just us.
All six of us.”

#100studytips Who ever said studying had to be boring and laborious! There are so many ways to study, and it doesn’t have to be painful and unenjoyable. It’s about finding what works and hopefully is still enjoyable. Studying in a study group may seem like too much fun, but actually it works, because you’re forced to discuss and coach each other at speed making learning the content more natural. It also brings context and memory hooks when you need to remember the information in tests later.

There are however some rules to doing study groups effectively. Because if they aren’t managed properly, they can be a massive waste of time. Here’s some tips to get more out of your study groups:

1. Choose similarly goal oriented students within the group.​

2. No distractor-types should be in the group. I think you know who I mean. 

3. Ideal number is 4. ​Any more, and it’s a party.

4. Choose people who contribute.​ You know what I mean. 

5. Do your ‘self-study‘ first.​ Don’t be a drag to the group and be clueless. 

6. Someone should be in charge of time-keeping, and stick to it.

7. Take turns asking questions.​

8. Present to each other.​ It’s learning at speed. 

9. Have Question & Answer group sessions.​

10. Be conscious of learning styles (Visual, Auditory Kinaesthetic) and try to apply it with the type of activities you are doing. 

11. Scheduled breaks & snack-time. Don’t snack while working. You end up talking about the food inevitably. LOL. 

Hope this is helpful!! 

A little ghost
Once knocked on my door.
It promised that
I’d feel better than before

If I took a little pill,
take this and smoke that.
What did I think
Oh how I regret!

I took what was passed
And within no time
The little ghost
Controlled my mind.

It sits in a corner
In my sick brain
And keeps screaming
“You need the high!”

It tells me to lie
To let go and go down
The path of destruction
It’s all that I know

I need to kill it
Cause I fear that
There’s no place for us both
In my head.

A little ghost
Once knocked on my door.
I shouldn’t have opened
I’m worse than before.
—  A little ghost.

Day Four: Bath Salts

The phrase “dope fiend” was originally coined many years ago to describe the negative side effects of constant cocaine use. As tolerance to the drug increases, it becomes necessary to take greater and greater quantities to get the same high. Prolonged daily use causes sleep deprivation and loss of appetite. A person can become psychotic and begin to experience hallucinations.

Short-term effects

  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature
  • Contracted blood vessels
  • Increased rate of breathing
  • Dilated pupils
  • Disturbed sleep patterns
  • Nausea
  • Hyperstimulation
  • Skin Rash

“Lance, 3:00,” Shiro barked. The sharpshooter turned his head so that he could see the armed Galra soldier around his migraine aura. 

The team knew that they were working around a gaping hole in his vision. That had become apparent when Lance had tripped over a freaking chair, of all things, and given away their stealth advantage.

I’m not just a single type of girl. I’m not just Daisy Calloway, the girl who dives off cliffs. Or Daisy Calloway, the girl who jumps into the ocean without a life vest. I’m so much more than that.

Happy Birthday, Amber!
