I need some tips on getting through high school and also how to get good grades when you're depressed and just don't care about anything anymore.

Hi Anon,

Here are some awesome ways to beat school blues:

College needs:

Food

Helpful sites:

High school needs:

Mental health resources:

Misc resources:

Motivation:

Music/Sound:

School resources:

Stress relief:

Studying/school help:

English/History:

Foreign Languages:

Geography:

Math/Science:

Study Needs:

TIPS:

  1. Remember that today’s day in age is different from how it was back then. So don’t stress about school too much.High school students today have the anxiety of what a mental patient in the insane asylum had in the 50s. Here’s also a thing to show how times have changed.
  2. Prioritize. List what needs to get done first and when. Sometimes getting the bigger/harder tasks is easier than conquering the smaller/easier tasks.
  3. Set times when certain projects need to be done and stick to that deadline.
  4. Turn your phone off or give it to your parents while doing work/studying. I know that we live in the age of technology and literally everything is at the touch of our fingertips. Honestly though you can wait on what your favorite celebrity has to say or if your crush liked your instagram photo. You’ll be more involved in that than you are into your work.
  5. If you have trouble in a certain subject and there is no assigned seating, take advantage of the front. I guarantee you’ll learn more.
  6. Ask your teacher what exactly you’ll need to know. If you’re taking notes during the year, write in the margins whether or not it will be tested. It will be easier to know what you will be tested on.
  7. Save your exams. Half the time your teachers use the same questions (or questions similar) from your exams on your midterms or finals.
  8. Don’t try to do homework straight afterschool if you can’t, despite what everyone says. Give yourself an hour, and try to get some exercise in. I find it stops me getting bored of sitting down. Not to mention helps me concentrate better.
  9. Don’t just read the material, write it, draw it, recite it, quiz yourself on it! Until you have the material down.
  10. Join clubs, sports, or organizations! You’re guaranteed to find friends in there. You’ll already have common interests. Start with that and go with the flow.
  11. College kids: If you don’t have assigned seating, and you have been sitting in the same seat for 2 weeks. That is you assigned seat now. Don’t move or you’ll screw everyone up and they will hate you.
  12. Color code things, such as your notes. If you want to see how I color code my notes message me and I’ll be happy to show you
  13. Be kind to one another.

I hope that helps!

Best,

Lena

Bullshit! You couldn’t have possibly known we were going after [Venganza]…

03.12.2017 | 🌨

오늘은 날씨가 정말 추워요~ 저는 책 조금 읽어요. 지금 밥 먹어요. 커리 치킨 먹고요. 너무 맛있어요.

Today I read a bit of a book about tidying up and how cleaning your living space can help you to clean up your life.
I also made some edits to my process book for my Comm D1 class.
Although I haven’t yet gotten to do revisions for my english paper yet.
Overall its been a successful 1st day of spring break!!!!

Study hard everyone~~

And now for something a little more serious.

So this week has been pretty hard for me because today it’s been exactly 4 years since my mom died.  We were really close and I think about her all the time.  I don’t usually talk about personal things (except lamenting my lack of mozzarella sticks) on this blog, but I thought that I would share this graphic essay I made about her for a creative nonfiction class in college.  Beware, it’s kind of weepy.

-♦- Time to give some love to our Knights! -♦-

In June and July, we’ll celebrate each of the girls in turn  You can write fic, draw fanart, make graphics, write meta/essays, put together fanmixes or music or graphics or needlepoint or balloon animals. Anything to show some love! You can (and perhaps should!) prepare things ahead of time, but wait to post til the appropriate week.

Just use the tags #HikaruWeek, #UmiWeek, and #FuuWeek when you share it to Tumblr so everyone can see, and we’ll also reblog it here!

You don’t have to follow any sort of theme, but if you need inspiration there are prompts for each day!  Interpret however you like, or ignore entirely.

Monday: sunshine
Tuesday: darkness
Wednesday: strength
Thursday: family
Friday: colours
Saturday: love
Sunday: future

Drop any questions in the Ask. Hope to see you all in June!

I feel so mindlessly absorbed whenever I dance. That’s when I feel the most joy. I want to make my fans happy too with my dance.

CHARMED APPRECIATION WEEK

Hi guys! It’s been a while since there has been a Charmed Appreciation Week so I wanted to create one! :D 

It will start on August 13th and will continue until August 19th and I’m hoping that all the gif makers, photoset/graphic makers, video makers, fanfic writers, etc. will want to participate! :)

There will be a theme to represent each day. On that day you should make a post (gifs, graphic, essay, fanart, video, audio, things you deem your personal headcannon  or really anything else) related to the theme. Although this is a confessions blog, I will reblog all your stuff on this blog that way every Charmed fan can see it! In order to do this, you’ll need tag it whatever you make as charmedaw2017 so I could track your tags. P.S. be sure to make charmedaw2017 as the first tag in your posts because only first 5 tags can be tracked on Tumblr.

Day one: Favorite Power / Favorite Transformation (Aug. 13)
Day two:  Favorite Character(s) (Aug. 14)
Day three: Most Heartbreaking Moment / Happiest Moment (Aug. 15)
Day four: Favorite Episode(s) / Favorite Quote(s) (Aug. 16)
Day five: Favorite Season (Aug. 17)
Day six: Favorite Friendship / trio (Aug. 18)
Day seven: Favorite Storyline / Free Choice (Aug. 19)

There different categories for some days. You can do just one two or all of them. It’s completely up to you guys!

Be creative as you like!! 

Invitation to Dérive

“Men can see nothing around them that is not their own image; everything speaks to them of themselves. Their very landscape
is alive.”  — Marx

(…) We perceive the ‘real world’ through our own image, ideas, conscience. The physical parts of an environment are decipherable by all, but the meaning we make of it, it’s almost incommunicable. It’s unique to which one of us. In a sense, it is safe to say we all live in a different space. In a different ‘geography’.(…)

When it’s over I just want to be able to look in the mirror and say, ‘Well, you were a half-decent player.’
