As You Guys Can See I Have Alot of Things I Need to Work On! Maybe My 2018 List Will be Much Shorter!
Someone is really complaining because jonlock didn’t become canon? Obviously it is not. It’s a ship, a (legitimate) construction in your mindpalaces. Let it stay there, where it belongs. You need to learn to divide the original product from your ideas of the product. They are not the same. It’s a common error, mixing those two things, but usually people stops doing it while growing up, so it’s not a big issue.
I’m more concerned about who says “the episodes were written badly”. Unless you seriously studied how to write stuff, this sentence is meaningless. I hope you understand it.
If someone knows what he/she’s talking about, I’m glad to discuss and share opinions about the writing and everything else: good writing, bad writing? Doesn’t matter, if you can argue about it. But if “bad writing” is just your translation for “what I wanted didn’t happen”, you need to grow up.
I thought that before I began to post my notes and things, I’d like you guys to get to know me better. So:
• I absolutely adore these studyblrs. Seriously, go follow them - @studyign @emmastudies @studyandtea @study-well @learntostudy @studyybean @studyquill
• I am English, and have lived in London for my whole life.
• until quite recently, I didn’t see the need to learn outside of school, or even study my subjects any more than absolutely necessary. However, over the summer I had a slow epiphany (if such a thing exists) and realised how much I really do love to learn.
• I would love to make friends on this site through learning and studying! Please do message me if you’d like to be study mates, it sounds like a lovely idea.
• I am quite new to the whole studyblr thing, having only really started to follow studyblrs about two months ago. I find them really inspiring, though, especially over the holidays when all I want is hot chocolate and Outnumbered!
In the spirit of all the midterms I’m writing, here are some tips that I should probably follow:
1. If studying makes you want to die, don’t fucking study.
Seriously though. Taking an hour, taking an afternoon, even taking a day is not going to jeopardize your grade. At the end of it all, your well-being is so much more important than 5% extra on your midterm. You will not learn anything if you are reading through literal or metaphorical tears.
2. Stay hydrated and nourished.
I know when we become study robots we put our humanity behind us, but don’t. If you are like me and drink a pot of coffee a day + energy drinks during exams, you need to keep hella hydrated or else you are going to crash instantly by the sure fact that your body has to focus on cleaning your digestive kamikaze up (there is nothing but empirical data here). Eat more than carbs, drink lots of water (at least a cup of water per cup of coffee if you can)
3. Take a “biobreak” every half an hour, take an hour break every three.
Studying is like trying to fill an ocean with a cup and jug. Every half an hour, take five minutes to pour your cup into a jug (short to midterm memory) by having a snack, going to the washroom, doing human things. Every three hours empty the jug into the ocean (mid - longterm memory) and do something else. This does not mean start you philosophy essay, or do readings. Watch Futurama, write some poetry, grab lunch with a friend. Do something that has nothing to do with academia, start a cool tumblr.
4. Fuck off with the whole studying every last second before the test or pulling all nighters.
The anxiety of that is crippling. If you really don’t get something in those three hours before the test, I have the saying that I won’t get it in finite time (I’m approaching an asymptote: A few hours is not going to help me any, it’ll make me an anxious mess more likely to do worse). Make yourself a nice meal, listen to your favourite album, and reassure yourself that “this test was easy, I have done great” (already). The corollary to this is also get a full night’s sleep. Either you are going to do it 12-8am, or 8am-2,3pm. You are going to get the hours, and it is a more productive regime to practice getting up early. Sleep is necessary to long term memory. Pulling an all nighter is one sure way to forget everything you stayed up all night to learn.
5. Remember hygiene
If you’re roommate calls the cops thinking someone has died in your room, lather up. I feel so shitty if I haven’t brushed my teeth, or had a shower. You’ll be amazed if you study, and then have a shower, put on comfy clothes, and self manage. It gets the blood flowing, and has a positive effect on your thought process if you feel good. Make your hair super soft, burn a nice candle, I don’t know, just do whatever the fuck makes you feel clean on the outside, and it will make you so much more “clean” on the inside.
6. You always have time.
You have studied all day, and you have so much more to cover, but your mom wants a call, your brother needs advice, your friends are lost and want to grab a pint. You. Fucking. Have. Time. This is similar to one but the twist is, one day these people will be gone, or realize you are gone, and you may have your 4.0 instead of a 3.7, but you have nothing else. The world will not stop, your dreams will not be shattered because you decided for half a fucking hour to be human. I once read that there is no lack of scientists, just a lack of good scientists. The reason why you do not have a 100% in everything is what sets you apart. Do we really want a group of scientists who have no social skills, no friends, no family? Hell no. You came here to help people, so don’t lose them before you get a chance to do that. The places you want to go, will want you, not the version of you that is like everyone else.
7. Finally, if you fail, who gives a shit?
I had a 97.2% average coming out of high school, and I think we all know what this is like, and in first semester I failed a calculus test and I was so disappointed in myself, and scared what my father would say, and then I realized who cares? This is not the end. I studied my ass off, I set my goals and I got good. I hate to be a cliché, but a mistake is only a mistake if you learn nothing from it. So, you failed. Why does that hurt? What can you do to turn your failure into a success story? People want to see what you can do to improve, not that you are static. People see a 78 in first year and an 90 by fourth and they want to know what changed. Short answer? you. You became confident, you became impassioned, you became the person you wanted to be.
That feeling when you finally finish all your final exams after more than a month of studying everyday for 8+ hours, and you sit at your desk the next morning not knowing how to live anymore because all your day revolves around studying, and you don’t know what to do with your life.
Sister, I've returned. I needed a bit of a break from the... hectic events we've been having. But in my absence I've really had a coming to satan moment, if you will. I'm ready to absolutely take charge and hold my responsibilities in high regard and take things a lot more seriously than I have been.
Really, now? I’m happy to hear it. Pray tell, what brought this revelation on? A renewed interest in your studies? The voice of our Father himself? Your significant other’s inability to remain faithful for more than a week at a time?
I’m Lilian, and I’m currently planning on studying Japanese again.
Yep! I started my journey with Japanese a few years ago, when I was a freshman in university, but I was always so busy doing other things I could only learn hiragana and katakana.
Last summer I wanted to take Japanese seriously and actually learned about 250+ kanji, and studied grammar and vocabulary from Genki. Summer ended and as my last year of university started, I couldn’t keep studying Japanese, so I forgot more than the 50% of what I’ve learned.
That’s what that “again” means!
Couple of months ago I discovered this awesome community in tumblr, so now that I’ve just graduated, I want to learn Japanese for real, get involved and learn alongside all of you! I think that’s the motivation I needed!
I am kind of shy, but don’t hesitate to talk to me! I’d love it!
Thanks for reading!
I’ll be following every studyblr or langblr with a motivation for learning Japanese, and hopefully, we can all improve! ❊
Can I just say thank you, thank you, thank you for majoring in social services? I have never felt like a job has suited someone more. To think of all the good you are doing for those kids with your kindness, your ability to sympathize, and your sunshine personality, really warms my heart. The world needs more people like you!
THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!! I applied to college as a business major, but changed it to human development & family studies before freshman orientation because it struck my soul in a way that moved me to tears - I wish I was kidding hahaha. Still minored in business for funsies, but the helping field has my heart.
But seriously, this sweet message means the world to me. Thank you for speaking identity into me and making me feel more empowered in what I do. I care for my kiddos immensely and I’m just so honored to play a role in their lives!!!
I’m Léa, I’m 17 years old and this is my first studyblr. I live in France, i’m in a french High School and I really, really love books. That’s it.
More seriously, I decided to create my studyblr to motivate me because, during my school year,
I had major health problems and I lost motivation so now, i really want a fresh start, and a studyblr is a perfect point to start.
In september I’ll start my 12th grade. I’ll study philosophy, mathematics, policy, economy, social, history, geography, english and spanish. ( i’m in an european section.)
French is my mothertongue so if you need help, don’t hesitate ask me ! :)
