GREEN SCHOOL

The history of this college goes back to the middle of the nineteenth century. As an answer to the severe lack of decent and affordable education in the city, this catholic entrepreneur and landowner started a school in 1862 inside existing buildings that were formerly used as industrial spaces. In 1868 he donated the property to the nearby diocese. During the next year, the school was expanded with a teachers residence. Between 1881 and 1883 all of the existing building, including the teachers residence, were demolished and form 1883 onward a new school was built in neogothic style. The building of this new school was largely funded by the former owner of the property. Originally the institution was a secondary school that also provided in agricultural education. By the beginning of the 1960’s the secondary school moved into new buildings and this school only remained in use for the primary school. After a merge with other schools at the beginning of the millennium all of the buildings were vacated. In 2016 the chapel was destroyed by a raging fire.

When you show yourself to the world and display your talents, you naturally stir all kinds of resentment, envy, and other manifestations of insecurity… you cannot spend your life worrying about the petty feelings of others

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:

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

Stimmy Witch Tips

Here are some magickal tips for people who, like me, stim for whatever reason. 

Originally posted by impartialsparkle

  • Charge your stim toys and slime in moonlight to cleanse
  • When playing with kinetic sand or slime focus on putting your negative feelings and energies into it as you squeeze and twist them in your fingers. Be sure to cleanse afterwards
  • Play with different toys, slime, sand, etc based off of their colors for easy color magick such as orange slime for motivation, green squishy for learning/education, yellow sand for inspiration, etc
  • Enchant your squishies, fidget cubes, spinners, tangles, etc to bring you peace of mind, relaxation, focus, motivation, or whatever else you may need it for
  • Use Glitter bottles for meditation and scrying
  • Drag sigils on your fidget spinners, so every time you use it, you activate the sigil on it
  • Draw sigils in kinetic sand or slime then to activate squish and squeeze it
  • Use plushies based off of their appearances such as what animal, food, or fruit they are based off of
  • When making slime, stir clockwise to focus on putting intent into the slime you are making such as for it to bring you peace of mind or focus when playing with it. Or stir it counter-clockwise for intents like banishing negative thoughts or anxiety when using the slime
  • I love deco slime so add in items that relate to your intent like bead color and shape, glitter color, confetti, etc
  • For those of us with wandering minds, use fidget toys or stim toys to help you focus when chanting, working on a spell or meditating
  • After an exhausting spell, ritual or curse use your stimming toy or object of choice to help relax and rest after a spell well done.
  • Use glitter bottles, orbs, and wands/sticks to represent the stars in the sky or other cosmic bodies for cosmic witchcraft
  • Glitter wands also make wonderful wands! Especially for spells related to motion, water or wind, the sky or stars and anything related to the colors in the wand
  • For those who love paint mixing, choose your colors based off of intent and mix them together as the spell itself 
  • Use gifs and videos of stimming to help you during spells and keep you calm if needed or to just add added intent from the things in the videos
  • Chewing stim toys are great for anger relief, think about all of your frustrations and anger going into the chew stim or anythign else you wish to banish from yourself, then soak in water or cleanse in the sun/moonlight
  • Orbeez are great for color magic and mixing them with your fingers and hands to charge and activate the spell. Just do not ingest

Hope this helps all of my fellow stimming witches! Stimming toys, slime, sand, etc etc are all great to use in witchcraft. I personally love slime and deco-slime. I always use it after or during a spell to help me keep my focus. 

Hope you all have a wonderful day dears!!! ^0^
