applications and stuff


7 sleeps until Christmas…

I don’t know if anyone was wondering about how my colour-coded law notes were doing.. but here’s an update! I feel like it’s going well and I’m hoping to catch up with everything over the break. I’ve been super busy lately with uni applications and other stuff, it’s been a nightmare 😂 Let me know how you guys are doing?!

And Merry Christmas everyone!! ❄🎄⛄

Had a bit of a frozen “there’s too much to do so I should just do none of it” moment over the last, er, few weeks, but I finally managed to push past it and catch up on all my job-application and paper-writing stuff tonight, and anyway, if you need this message right now, here it is: 

It’s not too late, you still have time, doing some is better than doing none, breathe deep, it’s gonna be okay, I’m rooting for you.

G’night, tumblr! <3

Been slowly cleaning up my dash, so I’ll need to find new people to follow. I’m basically looking for pagan blogs (spells, herbs, crystals, wicca, Norse mythology, general witchy stuff). I’d also really like to make some witchy friends.

So, like/reblog and I’ll check out your blog

okay the status of my second exchange application has been changed from ‘await offer’ to ‘awaiting module availability’ which means somebody is actually looking at my application which is a good thing

Warnings: Nothing I think!

Summary: You are currently getting your PhD in Art History, your dissertation being about The Power of Nudity in Art. Your advisor recommends you switch from being her TA to another professor because she feels her health is declining and wants you to get the best help/advice from someone new. She recommends Dr. James Barnes and believes he will be of great help to you. Things don’t turn out as you plan.

A/N: I am so sorry guys. I have been caught up with Grad school applications and school and other stuff but thanks for sticking with me! I love you all!! Let me know if you want to be tagged.

Hello. Hope your day is going well :) I was wondering if there are tenses that are mostly applicable to written stuff? Thank you.

It sort of depends.

In journalism, for example, you sometimes see people use the imperfect subjunctive -iera/-ara forms to mean pluperfect.

You might see naciera “was born” or “had been born” instead of nació or había nacido

The reason for that is that in older Spanish the imperfect subjunctive forms done with -iera/-ara were actually pluperfect and that the -iese/-ase forms of imperfect subjunctive were the only ones for imperfect subjunctive.

Spain still tends to favor the -iese/-ase forms, but Latin America favors the -iera/-ara ones… But even some Latin American journalists will use the old school pluperfect.

Otherwise it’s more common to see conditional conditional and in some cases preterite forms in written Spanish. 

There are places where conditional is becoming obsolete.

And in some places it’s more common to use present perfect or pluperfect instead of preterite; like saying he hecho instead of hice. It’s not all places, but it’s a linguistic trend.

I’m sure there are others, but written Spanish tends to be more formal so there are more things like using de que that get used in written Spanish rather than spoken Spanish.

Watcha doing ? Miss you

currently i’m preparing some uni application stuff and i’m thinking about participating the nyxfaceawards germany lol (also we celebrated my gf’s birthday recently what kept me busy AND leipziger buchmesse is happening at the end of the month so yea stressy month for me ahsfjds)

If you come from a school that does the IB Diploma, you have most definitely heard your seniors complaining, about how the IB is basically death in the form of a pre-university course. Once you start the IB, you quickly realise that boy, were they not kidding. Here are some tips to make the journey a bit more manageable:

1. A Flexible Routine is Ideal. 

Look. If you’re doing the IB, not only will you have to study 6 subjects but on top of that you have countless internal assessments, the EE, CAS, uni applications and general teenager-y stuff to think about. Get into a good studying routine but make sure that it is flexible enough, that when the IB throws a tantrum and a shit storm comes your way (this happens a lot,) you are prepared with an ample amount of time to clean up the mess. 

2. TOK is a pain, but it’s worth it. 

Sitting through a lesson of TOK is very similar to running around in circles. Seemingly pointless but you’re tired at the end of it. Most people cannot concentrate in TOK because unlike other subjects, it asks you to think deeply into why you are learning what you are and why what you are learning is ‘true’ or 'right.’ How can it be justified as the 'correct’ thing to learn? Many a times, this causes your brain to hurt, a lot and it is very hard to continue listening. But, TOK is 1 point, one point that could potentially boost your chances of getting into your dream school. Don’t let that point go to waste. 

3. Prepare, Plan, Prosecute. 

The three Ps of IB. You must prepare your day in advance. I find writing a to do list every morning keeps me on track every day (it is also very satisfying to tick off the boxes, once you’ve completed something.) Prepare for battle. Everyday, arm yourself with the equipment that you need and the mentality that you require, to face your day with grace. Plan your day out (as mentioned above, a flexible routine is ideal.) and then prosecute. 

5. Get at least 6 hours of sleep a night. 

My motto for the first 2 terms of IB was “sleep is for the weak,” and I’m sure I wasn’t the only person repeating it under my breath, as I scrambled to finish yet another chemistry lab report. I had no clue that what I was doing was so wrong. Without at least 6 hours of sleep, not only do you feel completely off the next day, but your capacity to concentrate in class is greatly reduced, additionally your brains ability to retain information is also reduced, meaning that you need to spend more effort recalling key facts. 

6. Be Selfish. 

For many of us, the two years of IB define our future. You are allowed to put yourself first for these two years. You are allowed to prioritise staying at home and finishing homework, over attending a friend’s birthday party. You are allowed to stop apologising to people and start looking out for yourself. You are allowed to ask for a bit of mental space to gather your thoughts. You are allowed to fight for your own benefit. You are allowed to be selfish. 

7. Surround Yourself with People that Understand. 

They don’t necessarily have to be doing the IB too, but people who understand and will not judge you when you complain (because you will,) people who will support you throughout and motivate you to continue fighting. You need to surround yourself with people who influence your life in a positive way.
