Looks like staying up too late to draw bakushimanari comics that make sense only to me is becoming an ill advised habit

Last-Minute Revision Tips
  • firstly, never ever ever just read through your notes!!! this is only good if it’s like the morning before your exam, otherwise never do it- it won’t work (unless you have a photographic memory or something)!
  • flashcards- they don’t have to be pretty, just functional! Write only key information down such as dates and places or formulae
  • don’t write notes for things you already know! Go through your folder/specification/textbook and make a list on everything you need to revise
  • bullet points- sit down with a black biro and some lined paper and read through your revision guide/textbook/class notes and make concise notes- you can make them look nice later using highlighters but for now just focus on noting down key information!
  • word documents- this is what I call my ‘panic notes’. I sit down with a revision guide (usually a day before my exam) and make very quick notes on a word document- I use shortened words/text speak to save time and make sure I get down key information
  • print off past papers- give yourself about half the time you would have in the exam and go through the paper, making bullet points for longer questions or plans for essays. Highlight sources/extracts you’re given as if you are in the exam as this is very good practice. Then use the mark scheme to roughly mark the paper and add to your answers
  • mind maps- don’t write down every single piece of information, or copy out sentences from a textbook- just put a key idea/topic in the middle and expand on it with key statistics/facts- use lots of diagrams if they help
  • notebook notes- get a small, lined notebook and write down key facts in it, also draw diagrams if needed. Then carry this notebook around with you- maybe go for a walk with it and test yourself as you walk (getting outside is very important and good for your brain!)
  • use word association/mnemonics/silly little tricks to help you remember things- for example I remember that barium ions burn green in the flame test because barium sounds like bear and bears live in forests which are green! Often the ruder the better as you’re more likely to remember them
  • ask a family member of friend to help you revise- ask them to test you on things from notes/a revision guide; I often ask my mum to test me and somehow it really helps me to remember things as she’s hopeless as science-based subjects so always mispronounces things and I have to explain basically everything to her! 
  • If no one is available to help you, test yourself! Fold a piece of A4 in half vertically and write questions and answers on separate sides- then, a little while later on so you don’t remember everything word for word, fold it back so you can’t see the answers and ask yourself the questions!
  • also it’s vital that you get a good amount of sleep (all nighters usually do not turn out very well unless you’re superhuman), drink plenty of water, eat healthily (it’s alright to treat yourself a bit though!), and get outside at least once a day! Also give yourself a few breaks from studying- you and your brain will need to relax a little!

alright, since my other masterpost seems to be doing pretty well with OVER 300 NOTES OMG THANK YOU, i decided that i would create another one about staying organized, per request. (shoutout again to @studyblrsab for the icon) alright so lets get started. Here is how I stay organized!!

1. Archive any papers from your teachers into a folder!!

  • okay so, idk about you guys but I get a lot of handouts from my teachers, especially in AP Literature and AP Psychology that contain terms, reading questions, references, etc and these can be great study materials later down the road so I put all of them into a specific folder!! This is also helpful when you’re doing homework and can’t remember a certain thing, but you know you have the handout so you can reference it! 

2. To-do lists are your friend.

  • Whenever i have a bunch of things to do, I create a to-do list to ensure that I don’t leave any important task out, plus you’re more likely to get things done when you right them down. For me, seeing me check off an accomplishment makes me feel happy because I can visually see my progress. But sometimes the basic to-do list gets boring so….

3. Use printables to spice it up a bit! Esp the calendars to keep track of long term assignments

  • The studyblr community has soooo many printables out there and they’re all so useful! In addition to being useful, they can make your study session look cool and motivate you to study since you don’t want to put such a pretty printable to waste! haha. If you don’t know where to start looking for printables, try my printables tag.
  • The calendar printables by @theorganisedstudent or @thearialligraphyproject are great to keep track of long term assignments. Personally, I write down any projects I know I will have in that coming month down. Then, I post the calendar above my desk so whenever I’m doing homework, I can look at it to ensure that I am on track. 

4. Purchase a planner or create a bullet journal system!

  • So this is kind of related to-do lists, but investing in a planner or creating a bullet journal can also keep track of tasks, events, homework, projects, and the like. As you guys know, your planner can be from anywhere and your bullet journal doesn’t have to be extravagant! Remember: don’t compare and do what works for you. For the year of 2017, I’m creating a bullet journal to see if its something I like! I think they look cool and its a great idea, but if its not something you’re into, SCRATCH IT. Don’t continue to do things that don’t interest or help you with your organization.
  • If you need some bullet journal inspiration (remember your bullet journal doesn’t have to be perfect or exactly like the ones you see), here’s my bullet journal tag. 

5. Try to keep a clean study area.

  • I shouldn’t be saying this because my desk looks like a tsunami hit it but you should try to keep your study place clean so you don’t misplace papers that are important. Here’s a tip in a tip:
    • Try the method of tacking important papers (assignment rubrics, scholarship stuff, etc) on the wall in front of or near your desk so they don’t go anywhere! As  I previously mentioned, having those things in front of me give me a visual to look at while I’m working to see where I’m currently at and what still needs to be done.

6. Set reminders in your phone/computer/etc, too!!

  • Technology is sooooo cool guys so utilize it! Set reminders in your phone about things you absolutely need to remember. For example, I set scholarship reminders into my calendar when their deadlines are so far down the road. 

well i hope this was helpful in some sort of way, although i doubt it was. Please let me know what you think of this master post and let me know if it help you in any way!! Send me requests and don’t forget to take care of yourself before you do anything.

@kurtmckinnon @pashastrelnikov

There is an almost three year long gap between letters, and between 1965 and 1968 (which is when the letters pick up again) F seems to have realized something about himself: “I want us to stay friends – even though it will never be the same as it used to be, which is why I never wrote to you again since then – because now I know that I’m not that way ["dass ich nicht so bin”] and I hope that you can understand that and that we can stay friends". Of course, “that way” could mean anything, but given the context I am positive that he means what we think he means, especially given that he later mentions having a fiancé and wanting to marry her soon.

Nathan, of course, being a supportive friend who respects people’s boundaries, proceeds to spend the next letters talking about how hot F is and how great sex is.

how do you make gifs?

I mean it’s a little difficult to explain because there are quite a few steps but I’ll try my very best. I’m gonna put this under the cut however, I assume it’s gonna get pretty long.

Keep reading

you know what? I think Kook has thousands more kept in the confines of his folder entitled “MY PRECIOUS JIMIN HYUNG” because whenever he’s sad or frustrated with how the world works he would open the folder and he’d feel as if a huge burden has been lifted off his shoulders.

Jimin hyung is his source of energy, his vitamin, his special dietary supplement to keep him going, but he could never say it out loud because he’s never good with words. So he did what he’d do best- photography. People would often take pics of what/who holds significance to their lives, and he did just that.

A special folder made specifically for a certain someone who means everything to him.

Hello love ❤️ I hope your having a good day! I wanted to ask you about your city build sunset. I adore it and I want it lol 😭, but something in the build is making my game crash at the main menu. When I 1st found the build I mass downloaded the cc you linked &put it in a separate folder then added it to my mods folder, so i know it is something in that folder specifically that is making my game crash since when I pull it my game works fine. I tried running mod conflict detector but no luck 😞

Heyyy @cookies4sierra, I’m so incredibly sorry for the inconvenience! People previously reported game crash issues to me about this build, and I’ve figured out there was something wrong with those realistic window walls I made for this build back then. :( I meanwhile have updated the walls file and they should work all fine now (at least I haven’t gotten any reports about issues since then…) You can find the new version of the walls and additional swatches HERE! :) Unfortunately, I don’t have this build anymore, so I can’t update it, but you could try putting all other CC in your game and the trays - except those broken windows wallpaper files by me - and then see if it works and apply the new wallpapers yourself? Again, I’m so so sorry for the inconvenience! I hope this however, will already solve your problem!

Looking for Historical & Aboriginal Dog Breed Photos!

I’m working on organizing and expanding my public access dog research database, and I’m adding some folders specifically for historical dog breed photos as well as pariah & aboriginal dog breed photos. I could use some help from any Dogblrs who have photos to add to the collection. :)

Examples of historical photos and illustrations:

Photos of historically important show dogs and champions are also good:

Examples of aboriginal dog breed photos:

(Aboriginal type Afghan)

(Dogo Sardo)

To make organization easier, please rename the files you upload using these conventions:

Historical Photos: Approx. date of photo or illustration + dog breed: ex. 1890 Italian Greyhound, 1920 Afghan Hound.

Historically important show dogs and champions: Titles + show name + breed (can be abbreviated): ex. Am Ch Dasa’s King of the Mountain IG

Aboriginal dog breeds & pariahs: Location (as specific as possible if known; put “COO” if location unknown) + breed: ex. Istanbul Tazi, Puerto Rico Pariah Dog, COO Afghan Hound.

To clarify, aboriginal dog breeds are breeds which are native to a certain country or region and are still bred there for a specific purpose (commonly hunting or livestock guarding). Some aboriginal breeds have been recognized by kennel clubs and bred for show (e.g. Afghan Hound, Basenji, Canaan Dog) but I’m specifically looking for dogs of these breeds from their countries of origin and not Western show types.

Pariah dogs are free-ranging dogs, typically “feral” street dogs, and are found in many countries around the world.

Google reverse image search can help you find the details on a photo you downloaded a long time ago if you don’t remember the specifics. :)

If the files aren’t named in a way that makes them easy to identify and sort, I probably won’t be able to use them, sorry. :(

Upload your photos here!

Don’t know bout anybody else, but I need a long ass post with nothing but exclusively heartfelt hugging

Okay, but “in my downloads folder”???? Like, he only just downloaded it, and hasn’t bothered to move it somewhere else yet? He could have just said “on my computer,” but no, he said “in my downloads folder.”

He wouldn’t specifically mention that unless he was trying to subtly show off that it only just got finished. I’M GOING TO DIE.
