Don’t worry about making your notes look beautiful in your class or lecture, instead focus on getting down all the relevant information. You can either type or write down these notes, use colours if you want but don’t make it too complicated.
When you get home, go through your notes with your text book and remake them, this means that you can get all the information you need in one place. Use as many colours and diagrams and symbols as you want!
Use colour - it helps to make different ideas and theories stand out. It also makes the notes look more aesthetically pleasing.
Try and write them by hand - for most people this will help you remember the information even better through kinetic memory, it also helps you decorate your notes better!
Don’t assume that you will remember certain bits of information in 6 months. I find that it helps if you write your notes as if you were going to give them to someone else who knows nothing about the topic.
If you have new information or new ideas, add them to your notes throughout the year. This will mean that when it comes to exam season you will have everything you need in one place and you will just have to learn the information.
My lovely family got me Game of Lives, a coloring book, (which I’ve already started), crayons, a Lindt chocolate bear and some book money. Even better, some amazing memories. I am so blessed to have them.
“How do I get over him when in all of my favorite memories, he’s right there with me?” she cried to me, head in my lap.
I pet her hair back away from her face. “Make new memories,“ I told her, trying to keep my voice soft. “Even better memories. And yes, at first, you’ll want to tell him about them. But eventually, you have so many better memories without him, you don’t even think about telling him. Because he’ll be just another memory, and you’ll have so many sweeter ones to remember now.”
(No it hasn’t been done anon, AND YES AOKAGA IS!! I did them both seperately in this. I feel that as far as people besides their friends and family, they wouldn’t really be too worried about people knowing they were together. I also want to point out that Kagami is not stupid in this drabble nor would he cheat on Aomine. I see Kagami as a very nice guy and he took the girl’s question at face value. To me, Kagami would be willing to hang out with anyone that asked, seeing it as a brave thing to ask a stranger to hang out. If he continued to hang out with them would be a different story. ALAS, read on my lovelies!)
Aomine walked down the hallway next to Satsuki, toning her out as she once again told him that attending basketball practice was important. He had better things to think about, like how Kagami looked last night laughing his ass off when Aomine had tripped on his rug. Or the even better memory of how Kagami looked moaning his name as he thrust into him. He grinned a bit at that last image until he felt a hand tap his arm. “A-Aomine kun? Could…would you accept this?” He looked down at the girl, her black hair in a high ponytail, her glasses somehow making her brown eyes look big and bright. His eyes then wondered lower, noticing her ample chest and tiny waist. She barely came up to his shoulder and judging from the front, her ass was probably great too. But as she smiled shyly up at Aomine, holding out a folded piece of paper that no doubt had a confession scribbled in it, he frowned. “Ah sorry, but I don’t want that.” The girl pouted a bit and pushed her chest out a bit, angling her head for what she probably thought was a cute look, “Please? It can just…be a one time thing.” Aomine scowled, “Sorry, but I’m taken.” The girl’s eyes got big at that, her arms lowering, taking the paper with her, “I’ve never seen you with a steady girl, Aomine kun.” He yawned and scratched his head, already tired of the conversation, “You wouldn’t have cause he isn’t a girl.” And with that he pushed forward, walking past his classroom entrance, towards the stairs to the roof, Satsuki rushing after him.
“Kagami kun?” The redhead turned away from the window he had been staring out of towards the girl standing next to his desk. He knew this girl or at least had seen her before. She was on the student council and was apparently in every boy’s wet dream at Seirin. She was tall and thin, her shorts always a bit shorter than normal, showing off her long legs. Her dark brown hair was perfectly curled and fell down over her shoulders. She smiled at him brightly, her hands on his desk. “Kagami kun, I was thinking after your practice is done today we could go get some coffee or something together.” Kagami vaguely noticed the activities in the room had stopped, all the boys turning towards him with wide eyes. He scratched his neck, thinking about the girl’s proposal. “Ahh I really don’t like coffee that much though.” The girl giggled a bit, “It doesn’t have to be coffee Kagami kun. We could do whatever you want.” “I’m supposed to meet Aomine after practice, so I can’t today.” The girl’s smile faltered a bit, “Aomine?” Kagami smiled a bit at the image of his boyfriend, “Yeah.” “Is that your friend or something?” Kagami looked up at her, “My boyfriend.” The girl quit smiling completely and got quiet for a moment, along with everyone else in the room. “I’m sorry Kagami kun, I didn’t know you were…that you were taken.” He smiled and gathered his stuff, the bell ringing loudly, “Don’t worry about it. We can do something another day if you want, but I gotta go to practice now. See ya.” Walking out of the room, he met up with Kuroko, the both of them talking easily as they headed to the gym, leaving his entire class behind in stunned silence.
