i always do this before i have an exam

  • Sakura: I know someone who has a crush on you ;)
  • Naruto: Is it-
  • Sakura: Not me, baka.
  • Naruto: Oh... Who, then?
  • Sakura: Well I promised I wouldn't tell but... If you guess who it is, it's won't be a problem, right?
  • Naruto: Uh right! Right! Give me a hint!
  • Sakura: This person has pale skin, and black hair, and they're from a very old, powerful clan
  • Naruto: Um...
  • Sakura: Also, when we were in the academy, they were always watching you, though you never seemed to notice
  • Naruto: Eto...
  • Sakura: They have a rare bloodline limit
  • Naruto: *scratches his head and squints*
  • Sakura: It gives them very special eyes
  • Naruto: So, you're telling me this person... *counts on his fingers, muttering* and they... Aha! I get it.
  • Sakura: Finally
  • Naruto: Hehe, Sasuke, that bastard must be pretty embarrassed
  • Naruto: Oh well, I guess it makes sense
  • Naruto: Though it's weird that we're both guys...
  • Naruto: Don't tell him I said this, but I always thought he was really pretty, not like a girl, just, um, in a different way
  • Naruto: And he's really cool, but, but sweet too, like awkward in a cute way when he tries to be nice. Plus we understand each-other.
  • Naruto: Even though we fight a lot- hell, even fighting with him is really fun.
  • Naruto: And those times we kissed... They were an accident, but damn, that bastard had soft lips. I wonder if- uh *blushes* never mind.
  • Naruto: All things considered, it could be a lot worse
  • Naruto: I wonder if I should ask him out on- Sakura-chan?
  • Sakura: It's- It's-
  • Naruto: Sakura-chan, your eye is twitch-
  • Sakura: HINATA
  • Naruto: What?
  • Naruto: ...
  • Sakura: ...
  • Naruto: I don't get it. What does Hinata have to do with Sasuke and me?
  • Sakura: You know what, never mind. Yeah, take him out to eat ramen. Figure out how you'll revive his clan together while you're at it. It's not going to be easy since you're both guys, but when was anything ever easy for you two? It never stopped you before.
  • Sakura: Kami-sama, I tried. I really did. I'll leave the rest up to you.
  • Naruto: Sakura-chan, you're not making any sense. Where are you going? Oi, Sakura-chan!

hey friends!! a lot of you ask me for tips on things all the time + this is just some really good advice i’ve learnt throughout my years of being a student shared with you:


  • study frequently so when exams/tests come by you only need to revise your shorter notes [you will thank yourself later]
  • i know it’s tedious but try to always do your homework [it’ll help you in the long run]
  • do your readings before class, this will help you understand better!!
  • use time wisely, for example study on the bus on the way to school [i really like doing this]
  • teach yourself material by giving lessons to soft toys or maybe using actual tools found in your household [i like using this method particularly for biology especially with water]
  • if you have to read to revise, read aloud
  • record yourself to be able to listen later when on the bus or something [i like doing this with poetry]
  • make sure to always get enough sleep, it’s not worth it losing sleep over studying! [also i find it better to wake up a little early to revise than sleep late]
  • incense works wonders if you’re trying to calm yourself down whilst studying
  • keep a hot beverage around when you’re studying + reward yourself by drinking a little bit of it when you want to
  • get rid of distractions while you’re studying, put your phone on flight mode or leave it to charge somewhere
  • if music doesn’t hinder your attention span, then listen to it whilst studying/doing homework [i suggest classical music/coffee shop noises/rain sounds] ~ [my spotify playlist // classical favourites // get ur studying on // flourishment]
  • watch videos on a particular topic before you cover it in class
  • if your syllabuses are available online, download them + print them out
  • have an organised desk, it helps you feel less stressed
  • use the pomodoro technique to study
  • make sure you have good lighting
  • work out past exam papers if they’re available to you, these are really good practice for your exam!
  • talk to your teachers during their office hours if you need to, that’s what they’re there for
  • if you’re too afraid to do the latter, send them an email when you need them!
  • have different files for every subject to keep you organised
  • don’t neglect any subject- just give them the time they need + prioritise
  • use a planner/bullet journal to help you plan your week

school stuff

  • smile at people, you have no idea how much it could brighten their day [plus your smile is great!!!]
  • always keep a water bottle handy
  • make your school lunch in the evening so you can sleep a bit more in the morning + not spend your money on school lunches
  • always take your headphones + charger to school [if they’re allowed]
  • keep some emergency money or something in your pencil case, you never know when you might need them!
  • if you menstruate make sure to keep a bag with stuff for when you’re menstruating [if not for you, maybe your friends may need something too]
  • take naps on the bus if the journey is long [make sure you don’t sleep + end up on the other side of the city/country]
  • if you have free lessons, utilise them! do your work at school if it can be done there so you are able to study/relax at home!
  • always take a book with you to school just in case you ever get bored
  • go to a guidance counselour if you need one [they can help with practically anything you may need!] 
  • go to private tutoring lessons if you need them/can afford them

personal life

  • take pictures, lots of them!!! not just for instagram or something, they’re actually a really great memory
  • don’t forget to visit your relatives every now and then
  • watch the news/read articles to help you stay in touch with the real world
  • don’t worry so much about social media honestly from experience, it’s trivial anyway. indulge yourself in the real world + spend time with family and friends!!
  • don’t compare yourself to others, you’re not them + they are not you!
  • try to get some exercise done, even if it’s just using the stairs instead of a lift or dancing around in your room
  • always keep yourself hydrated
  • remember to take a day off once a week, it’ll help you avoid burnout
  • eat fruits/nuts as a snack!! 

+ my masterposts

these are all practically all the tips i can remember!! i hope they help a lot of you out <3 good luck with school

*sigh* tumblr why do you always have to make my photos so blurry?

tb to some study sessions i’ve had earlier this semester! first one is from last autumn(i wish i still could draw like that) when i skimmed through my history book right before the exam. the other one is from a few weeks ago when i was utterly lost with math! luckily i’m back on track again🍀

No to Low Stress College Study Strategy

I started using this study method my 2nd month of college, when I realized that it was better for study-life balance and my emotional wellbeing. It makes me feel productive and alert all day, and gives me plenty of free time to pursue hobbies, clubs, and personal interests. It sounds kind of hardcore at first, but it’s seriously wonderful if you give it a try! Here’s the game plan:

  • After the first few days of the semester, I sit down with all of the syllabi from all of my classes and write down every single assignment for the rest of the semester into my planner. Include exams, readings, lab report due dates, worksheets, essays, etc. Everything.
  • Every weekend, I set aside however much time I need to knock out every single assignment for the upcoming week that is possible to do in advance. I do my textbook readings, textbook practice problems, my humanities readings, short essays or write-ups to accompany those humanities readings, etc.
  • Even though I’m doing more work, I generally spend the same amount of time in the library as my friends who only do their work for Monday over the weekend. This is because if you don’t commit to doing a large number of assignments, you tend to spend a lot more time on minor assignments than is truly necessary - do I really need to spend 3 hours on this 1-page essay for my English class if it’s only graded on a 10 point scale? Couldn’t I finish this in 1 hour and then devote more time to the rest of the readings I need to do for that class this week?
  • I still have enough time to sleep in, have long lunch breaks, go the gym, go to parties in the evening, etc.
  • You can do this, no matter your workload. I am a pre-med science major taking 20 credits (max course load) a semester, with two labs, and I can get it done. My roommate is an English major with heavy novel reading assignments and she can get it done. (Disclaimer: this mostly applies to undergraduates.)
  • Research papers and midterm exam studying generally get their own day separate from homework assignments. I like writing essays in 1 or 2 sittings, but if you like to spread it out just break up the essay into manageable pieces and do it over multiple weekends, or do the pieces between classes (see next bullet point).
  • After blasting through most of my assignments over the weekend, during the week I generally only have to do busy-work that is assigned at the end of classes and continue studying for midterms that week. I easily finish these assignments in the breaks between classes during the day.
  • With this strategy, I always complete all of my homework well before dinnertime, and often have days when I don’t have any assignments to do. I use this free time for club meetings, hanging out with friends, going to the gym, marathoning Netflix, pursuing hobbies, working a job, whatever.
  • I also use this extra time to be able to study for exams much more effectively - when you don’t have busywork assignments floating in the back of your mind, it is much easier to focus. You will study more productively and effectively, and with much less stress. Exams are worth way more of your grade than the homework assignments you blast through each weekend, so it’s best to be able to focus exclusively on them Monday - Friday.
  • The best part about this strategy is that your workload is heavy on Sunday and sometimes Saturday, but you get to relax Monday - Friday. You basically have a 5 day weekend every week, assuming you enjoy going to class.

If anyone also uses this method, I’d love to hear from you or hear your variants/study suggestions! If anyone tries out this method for 1 or 2 weeks and finds that it works for them, I’d love to hear about it! If you try it and hate it with a fiery burning passion and loathe me for even suggesting it, I’d love to hear about it!

I believe in you!<3 No matter what study method you choose to use, just do your best and exceed your own expectations.

‘Ello, studyblr! Maths (or Math, whatever) can be quite / extremely / obscenely frustrating at times and very simple at others and it’s sort of hard to find a bridge between that. You can’t exactly cram for it either or study in under a week for finals so after flunking my first term epicly, I came up with a strategy of sorts and now my grade’s an A+ (yay!!). Anyway, thought I’d share ‘cause this shit could have saved me a lot of tears.

mr. neighbour || 13

Genre: Neighbour!Jungkook
Notes: I finally finished! I should be studying for my exams, but I procrastinated a bit to finish this up. Thank you for waiting! You guys are the real MVPs :D ALSO, it’s not Jaewoo!
Series: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12

You and Jungkook went back to being just neighbours, just like it had been from the very beginning before that fateful drunken night. Rarely did you see him and if the both of you somehow bumped into each other, your gaze was downcast and your earphones were stuck in your ears to avoid him. He was the same way.

Hours turned into days and days turned into weeks. The season was beginning to change from fallen leaves and frigid temperatures to blossoming buds on tree branches and warmer nights. Despite the passing days, the hole in your chest remained the same. Some days you half expected to hear that familiar knocking on your door and other days your heart would jump up into your throat when your phone buzzed. The disappointment would settle quickly after though. The pain of losing a love and a really great friend at the same time was still too fresh, no matter how hard you tried to keep it away.

But time waited for no one, and life would move on with or without you. That was the cruel reality. What little hope you had in the depths of your heart dimmed and withered away, leaving behind a hole instead.

anonymous asked:

Imagine Tony is neighbors to Steve and Bucky and Tony's cat always ends up in their apartment bc she likes to nap in their dog. Sometimes Steve and Bucky's dog sneaks into Tony's apartment bc he misses the cat and Tony's sweatshirts are so comfy

I am so so so so sorry for the long wait! School was crazy, work was crazy, family was crazy. bla bla bla bla. But now the only thing that I have to do is focus on the exams. And after that I have a summer break of nearly four months, so enough time to write, before I start university. For now, I’am aiming to publish one story a week (I am still looking for a suitable day). Anyways. I present you fluff!


It was really too cute. Far too cute. Sensory overload. So cute it should be illegal.

“So… I am most definitely not waking them up,” Steve said, while softly cooing at the two animals. Once again, Tony was in the new neighbors’ apartment looking at this little traitor of a cat, that was cuddling Steve’s and Bucky’s Labrador. The white fur of the Maine Coon could be seen only if you looked from the top of the two animals, so  engulfed was it in the dog, which had rolled itself in a ball as if to protect the cat. This was the sixteenth time  in a month and half that the cat snuck out of the apartment just to go and have alone time with the neighbors’ dog.

Things no one told me before college.

1. Just because you have an interest in something doesn’t mean that you have to study that thing. I’ve always loved politics so when it was time to pick a program, I chose something related to political science. About an hour into the first class, I knew I was in the wrong place. Not because I didn’t like politics, I do. But simply because I wasn’t meant to study that. 

2. You’re allowed to make mistakes. You’re allowed to fail an exam or a class. It’s really not the end of the world. Cry a little, eat some chocolate and move on. Make it your motivation to do better.

3. You’re also allowed to change your mind. You can pick a major or a program and decide that you don’t like it. You can quit that and study something else. Who knows, you might find your calling

4. Whatever decision you make, there’s always going to be someone out there who thinks you’re wrong. But who cares. Do what you want to do. When I decided to study classical studies and anthropology, a lot of my friends thought I was being stupid, but believe me, it was the best decision I’ve ever made and no one can tell me otherwise. 

5. College might not be for you and that’s okay. Everyone has a different kind of intelligence and your type of intelligence might not fit into the college mould. And that’s totally fine. It doesn’t mean that you aren’t smart. Having a college degree doesn’t make you smart, just like not having one doesn’t make you stupid. 

Studying - Jim Kirk

Requested by anonymous. 

“Jim, stop,” you said. He scoffed and you looked up at him. 


“You know what you’re doing.” You looked back down at your book, but could feel his eyes trailing over you again. You had clearly worn this low cut shirt for a reason, but you really needed to get some studying before hand. In some crazy turn of events, you had actually gotten Jim to come into the library, and you were going to get your worth’s. 

“I can’t look at my girlfriend?”

“Not when she’s trying to study. Come on, you could study, too. We have a huge exam on Tuesday.”

“I told you, I already studied.” Jim always said that, but you never saw him. He also always did incredibly well on his exams. For a while you thought he was cheating, but he promised you he wasn’t.

“Study some more.”

“There are other things I’d like to study,” he said. You rolled your eyes.

“Lame. If you really want to have my attention you’re gonna have to try harder.” He laughed and you fought of the urge to smile with him.

“Come on, we both know you’re bored.”

“It’s not a question of whether or not I’m bored. I need to study, so I am.”

“Fine. I’ll see if I can find anything good in the stacks.”

“What, like porn?” He snorted.

“Hopefully.” He walked away and you watched him for only a second before looking back at your book. You studied for a good six minutes before Jim was back.

“So.” You looked up when it was clear he wasn’t going to say anything more with anything less.


“There’s a corner of the library where people go to fuck.”

“Neat,” you said, looking back down at your book. Jim touched your hand and you looked back up at him.

“Let’s go.”


“Why not?”

“I’m not in the mood.”

“What if I help you study?” You cocked an eyebrow at him and he smirked.


“One hundred percent,” he said, flashing his charming smile.

“Fine. As long as you actually help me.” He smiled even wider and moved to your side of the table. He took the book from you and patted his leg. You looked at him in confusion before he picked up your feet and rested themo n his leg.

“Ready?” he asked. You nodded and listened as Jim started asking you questions. For a while, you were on fire, getting every question right. However, as Jim got further into the book, the less you knew. 

“I’m never going to learn this,” you grumbled, resting your head against your knee. The more you studied, the closer you got to Jim. You legs were now bent, with your feet still on his lap. He had one arm wrapped underneath your legs. 

“Yes you are,” he said, kissing the top of your head. “Come on, I know you know this.” He reread the question and you closed your eyes to try and picture the answer. Jim’s thumb brushed against your skin, and it eased your mind, letting you remember the answer.

“Nice!” Jim said when you answered. 

“Keep going.”

“I will.”

“No, I mean keep touching me.” He cocked his eyebrow this time and you laughed. “It relaxes me.”

“Don’t worry, you don’t have to tell me twice.” You smiled and Jim read the second question, tracing his finger over the piece of skin bared behind your ripped jeans. The answer came to you again and he smiled. “That’s my girl.” 

Over and over, Jim questioned you, and kept his hand on you. And every time, you got the question immediately. When he reached the end of the chapter, you opened your eyes, confused as to why he wasn’t reading anymore.

“We finished the chapter.”

“Well do the review questions at the en-”

“I did.”

“Really?” He nodded and you pulled your feet off of him. You put a hand on the back of his head and pulled him into a passionate kiss. He grinned into it and wrapped his arms around your waist, moving them softly against your shirt. “Thank you,” you said, pulling away for a moment.

“You know you don’t have to thank me like this.” You laughed and stood up, holding out your hand.

“Show me the way.” He smiled and stood up, trailing his hands up your waist as he did. He laced his hand in yours and kissed you quickly before leading you up one flight of stairs, and into the very back of the library. There was a corner of books that stood in the back. The stacks created a tiny, private area. You smiled at Jim and he mimicked it. 

You put your arms around his neck and started kissing him. Jim’s hand were exploring your waist and back. As your kisses started moving down his neck, he began backing you up against the stack of books. You groaned in slight pain and he smiled into your kiss. His hands traveled down to your legs and soon, he picked you up and wrapped your thighs around his waist. 

A second later, he was laying you down on the floor, never removing his lips from yours. He did eventually trail away, copying your kisses down your neck. He moved further, and soon he had to push your top to the side so he could place a few kisses and tugs on your breast. You moaned breathlessly and he smiled again. You put your hands up and he pulled your shirt off fully. 

He continued kissing down your stomach, until he came to the hem of your jeans. He looked up at you and you nodded. He started unbuttoning them and you kicked them off. He continued his kisses as he pushed your underwear to the side. His lips and tongue were cool down there and you moaned more than breathlessly. 

“You aren’t allowed to smile against me,” you said. He did again though and you moaned. He pulled away and started unbuckling his jeans. He was already mostly hard, and only a few strokes were needed to get him all the way there. He pushed inside of you, and you moaned loudly. He put his hand over your mouth and you laughed, nodding.


“Don’t be,” he said into your shoulder as he began pressing into you. You gripped his shoulders, trailing your hands over his back. He was rhythmic as he moved inside of you, and waited until you were both comfortable before picking up his pace. 

Jim continued this sped up movement until he nearly couldn’t, and in the end, he sped up more than he had before, just before finishing. You smiled as you felt his warmth inside of you, and a few moments later you finished, too. He pulled out of you smoothly and placed a kiss to your stomach. 

Since this was a public space, he handed you back your clothing and you both got dressed rather quickly. You remained seated on the floor, and you started making out with Jim. You were tucked in the corner of the shelves, that it took Leonard a moment before he realized it was you two. 

“Jesus!” he said, jumping back in surprise. His yell surprised you, too, and you jumped a little and knocked your head against the shelf.

“Dammit!” you said, holding your head. Jim put his hand over yours and looked at you worriedly.

“Nice job, Bones. You should have announced yourself.”

“You’re the ones hiding the the tiniest corner of the library. What are you even doing here?” Jim looked at you and you shrugged.

“Studying.” Bones rolled his eyes, clearly knowing what this corner was used for. 

“I just need a book.” He grabbed the right one from the shelf and put up his hand to say goodbye. “Go back to your studying.” You laughed and kissed Jim again when he was gone. 

“I think you’re the best study buddy I’ve ever had,” you said.

“Me too,” he said, closing the gap between the two of you again.

Hello, it’s #optomstudies here again with another Weekly Study Tip on university life! This will be a multi-part series that hopefully will give a unique insight, since I can go on and on about university, and I love giving advice and helping others :)


Keep close with your high school best friends. A lot of people from my high school came to my university, and they’ve done different things in this regard. I know some people who completely cut off contact with everyone from high school. Then there are others who stuck to the same group of friends, and then others still who became closer to high school classmates that they previously had little contact with. 

My advice is to choose to keep your closest friends, because making friends that close in university can be difficult. 

What if you cut off everyone and hang with uni friends, only to fail a subject and have to make a whole new group? This is a very real occurrence; many of the friends I was quite close to have left, and it’s just difficult to keep in touch as much as if we were in the same classes. I think out of a cohort with 110 ish people, we’re down to 56, and even then only about 2/3rds of us were from the original cohort that started together in 2013. 

Uni is great for meeting a variety of people. These might be people that you don’t get along with, people you find standoffish, people who you are forced to work with for the sake of an assignment, people who you think just act stupid/selfish/snappish or on the other hand, they might be people who become great friends that you continue to keep in touch with. It reflects the wider world, so keep an open mind and try and learn about different perspectives. I found that first year was really good for reading cues about people and figuring out little things from small subtle gestures.

You can’t get along with everyone. I kinda knew this before uni, but at the same time when I’m dealing with people it’s hard to keep it in mind. There are just people who you can hang out with for ages, and yet you still don’t get along, not because of any lack of effort on your part. If you don’t get along with someone and you’re not forced to, then just hang with others. I think that’s one of the main benefits of uni; you aren’t sort of forced to hang out just in those lunch groups anymore. 

Try to make friends with people outside of your degree. I just think that knowing and talking with someone outside of your degree interests makes you a more well-rounded person and you can often pick up things about a topic that you wouldn’t otherwise know. Likewise, join a club for socialising and meeting people with the same interests! So that you can fangirl over the same things :D

Don’t be the tool that cosplays a pauper. That omgsh-free-food-guys attitude is absolutely ridiculous because unlike American college students that almost always have to live away from home and pay for their tuition, most Australian students live with their parents. They also aren’t living paycheck to paycheck, so I don’t understand why people have to scramble for free food in a bizarre cult-like fashion. There’s even a free food facebook page for our university where anyone that doesn’t post about free food gets hurled abuse.

Maybe don’t talk about university homework too often? I know it’s tempting especially as most people reading this are probably studyblr owners, but now that I personally try not to talk about uni, I find that people start talking about uni to me. It can get exhausting after a while. Likewise, don’t be that person who omgsh-slept-only-4-hrs-last-night-and-hasn’t-even-started-that-assignment-due-tmrw-gosh-i’m-soooooooo-tired. Is that like a humblebrag or something? What’s up with half the student population competing for who handles uni life the worst? It gets old pretty fast. 

Going to annual cruises, parties, formals: go once in first year and once in your last year. Once for the experience, and then in the last year for the meaningful memories and celebrations. No need to put up with vomit and drunkards unless necessary. Plus, the events are usually held during mid sem break, which is when you want to catch up with your studies and your old high school friends for example. 

Uni is great for networking and learning professionalism much needed for future career relationships. There are a lot of resources, not to mention careers support, and some of the lecturers you talk to, or the seniors above you could be your future coworkers or bosses. Try to make a good impression on everyone you meet :) 

Find someone who likes to study/practise as much as you do! As an optometry student, I also need to keep my clinical skills up to scratch so I like to practice whenever I can… except the thing is that I almost always can’t find a partner. It’s so impossible because no one can be bothered going to practice when I do, and they all practice right near exam period which is when you have to start fighting to the death waking up at 5:30am for a practice bay!

Summary: There’s always been a rivalry between Gryffindor and Slytherin. That’s all the strong feelings Yuri has for Otabek are. It’s just a house rivalry. That’s it.
* Here’s some info you might find helpful before you start reading (House and Year):

  • Gryffindor: Otabek (4), Mila (4), Mickey (4), JJ (6)
  • Slytherin: Yuri (2), Seung-gil (5), Isabella (5)
  • Ravenclaw: Sara (4), Yuuri (5), Phichit (5)
  • Hufflepuff: Victor (6), Chris (6)

Yuri stabbed his sausage brutally and glared at the Gryffindor captain with as much malice as he could manage so early in the morning. “He’s insufferable.”

“Let me guess. You’re complaining about Otabek. Again.”

“He’s annoying.”

“Sure, that’s why you always stare at him.”

I just started a double degree (engineering and business) and holy shit I regret everything. THIS IS ME SCREAMING INTO THE ABYSS. I DONT KNOW HOW I'LL EVER MAKE IT TO MY FINAL YEAR


Here’s a few things I wish I’d known before I started my double degree (+ a few things which have kept me sane since then!) 

1. Coffee. 

  • I started my degree as a ‘social’ coffee drinker. 

2. Student Discounts 

  • Reap the benefits of student discounts. Seriously. 
  • Know where the cheapest coffee is, transport subsidies, printing subsidies, student sales, student flights! 

3. Shit happens, things change. 

  • Just because you hate something now, doesn’t mean you can’t love it later. The upshot being - just because you love something now, doesn’t mean you won’t hate it with the feverish passion of a thousand burning suns later. 
  • Your interests will change. Your goals, both academic and personal will change. That’s ok.
  • Find something that motivates you to complete each degree. You may enjoy both your degrees equally. You may prefer one over the other - particularly if you’re still completing tedious core units for one degree whilst you get to do much more interesting advanced units for the other. Remind yourself why you’re doing this degree. Why are you doing double the workload, why is it worth the late nights, caffeine overdoses and the concurrent deadlines? Assess each degree independently of the other and find something which motivates you to study in that field. 
  • In my case, I was very demotivated halfway through my degree. Honestly speaking, in my 3/4th year, I was ready to drop my other degree and graduate with a single. I only continued my other degree after going on exchange (read: more holiday than study) and when I could finally do advanced units which were interesting to me. 
  • For others, changing degree (yes, even in 6th year) was the best choice for them. They’re much happier now, and much more driven - and it was their experience throughout their double degree that helped them realise their passion in another field. Sometimes, finding out what you hate is just as important as finding out what you love.  

4. Save a first year unit for the end of your degree 

  • Ok, I shit you not. 
  • If your degree structure allows you to save an elective first year unit for your penultimate or final year, do it. 
  • Sure, its strange to walk into a class of freshers. When you inevitably have an ‘ice breaker’ exercise, watch in sick fascination as the majority of the class whips their head around incredulously as you introduce yourself as a “fifth year student” 
  • BUT BOY THE REWARDS ARE SWEET. For example, having a reduced workload so you can focus on your advanced units. Easy marks because you already know half the shit, and if not, you know where to find it. 
  • You already have half the transferrable skills (report writing, referencing, critical analysis, knowledge of HOW THE FUCK TO SUBMIT AN ASSIGNMENT THROUGH YOUR UNI SERVER) to do well. You could probably skip all the intro/ getting to know your way around the library resources classes. 
  • A relaxed class and a healthy boost to my GPA? Sign me up. 

5. Use time to your advantage

  • One of the things I’m grateful for is time. 
  • Its a long degree. Instinctively I knew this when I signed up - 5 to 7 years is a long time. But I only truly felt how long a period that time was when my friends with shorter degrees graduated and entered the workforce. And whilst I enjoy what I study, the mechanics and routine of going to uni and sitting exams etc remains tedious. 
  • But heck, I am grateful for the time and opportunity I’ve had to figure shit out in the safety of university. 
  • Professionally, I know the ins and outs of graduate job hunting. I have had the opportunity to ‘test run’ interviews etc, and learn about more opportunities with each passing cycle - the fairs, the assistance you can get at uni, the whole recruiting circus. I have a well established study system that works for me, featuring keyboard shortcuts, shitonnes of sticky notes and my weight in coffee. I know where to ask for help and I know which areas of campus are the best study spots and which places to avoid during mid-sem hell. I know what events my student society runs, and I know when there’s free breakfast during semester. I’m confident. I’m certainly not ready to face the workplace, but I’m more prepared that I would have been 3 years ago.  
  • Personally, I’m more confident in my identity and what direction I want to take in the future. I know what I like, what I dislike, and what I’m willing to sacrifice/invest for what ends. I’ve learnt a lot about how I handle stress, friendship and 8am non recorded classes (read: not well). 
  • Also, FIGURE OUT WHAT YOUR HIGHER DEGREE GRADUATE REQUIREMENTS ARE BECAUSE YOU HAVE TIME TO FIX THINGS. Do you need practical experience to graduate? Do you need to complete an internship unit? How many units of each degree do you need to complete? Have you completed the correct number of majors for each degree? Find out early, so you can amend your study plan. 

6. Old habits die hard. 

  • In saying that, use the length of your degree to develop good habits. Figure out what study method works for you, find out whether you’re more engaged in morning or evening classes. Where’s a decent study spot on campus? 
  • Don’t be afraid to apply the skills you’ve learnt from one degree to the other. Whether it be research skills, note taking habits or otherwise. Keep in mind the differences between each discipline. 
  • Work smart. By the time you’ve reached 3rd year, you’ll be at the halfway point. You know what lectures are like. You know what tutorials are like. You know which textbooks are worth the buy and what assessment structure suits you. Don’t be afraid to exploit that knowledge to forge a better semester for yourself. 

Its a long journey. There’s going to be good days, shit days and then “fuck the world, what the hell is this” days. There’s going to be coinciding deadlines and  insane exam timetables. And that’s not even counting the late night existential crises in between. 

But you’re going to learn so much - both in an academic and personal sense. You’ll find out what you enjoy, what lecturers to avoid, what subjects bore you to death. You’ll meet so many people - inspirational people, motivational people, and some assholes. You’ll realise that fuck yes I can complete a 3000 word assignment the night before, and yes I can survive a 90% exam. 

Remember you always have the freedom to choose. You don’t have to do it all at once - go on exchange, take a semester off, find something to break up the tedium of study. Sometimes, the bravest thing you can do is to figure out what’s best for you and pursuing it. 

Good luck dear anon. You’re the first double degree anon to scream into the abyss - THIS IS ME SCREAMING ALONGSIDE YOU OH MY GOD YOU ARE NOT ALONE. 

All the best,


Why exo's first comeback of the year is always unbearable


and we love every second of it :)


anonymous asked:

i have a writing state test tomorrow and i know i'm probably gonna be fine, i'm panicking aaah is there anything you do in the morning of state tests to calm nerves and stuff?

Hi anon! Don’t worry, I know you’ll do great!!

I always panic before tests and exams because honestly standardized testing is not my strong suit. But here are some things I do before tests to calm my nerves:

  • Get more enough sleep: The night before, I make sure to get 30 minutes to 1 hour more of sleep than I usually get. This usually means only revising a little the night before so I can actually go to bed on time. 
  • Treat yourself: The night before I also like to do something nice for myself. Maybe take a bath or listen to my favorite song or watch a funny movie or tv show.
  • Wake up slowly: I hate it when my alarm clock wakes my up abruptly, because that’s the opposite of calming and relaxing. Instead I like to use this app to wake my up slowly. 
  • Eat and/or drink something: eat a nice breakfast (or any breakfast) if you can stomach it. It always calms me down because it forces me to slow down and stop rushing, which is definitely something I’m prone to do on test days
  • Wear one cute thing: I try and fail to do this every day, but on test days i definitely like to wear at least one thing (no matter how small) that I like and feel good in, or smart in, or something.
  • Treat yourself some more: after the test, I like to just let out the breath I’ve been holding since before I took the test and get a smoothie or something to celebrate the fact that it’s over!

I don’t do these for every test, but they’re just some things I’ve picked up, and I hope it helps you too! :)

Study Like “The Brightest Witch of Her Age”

If you’re a potterhead you must be familiar with this brilliant witch. Yep! Hermione Jean Granger! 

Known as “The brightest witch of her age”Hermione always on the top of her class. She even brewed a difficult potion in the second year, solved Prof. Snape’s riddle, and the coolest of all, punch Draco Malfoy on the face! (Sorry, I just can’t help it) 

In this article, I would like to share how we could be “The Brightest Student in The Class” just like Hermione. Okay, let’s start!

1. Prepare yourself before school

Well, back to the first time The Golden Trio meet at Hogwarts Express, Hermione confidently said that she already read all her books and practice some spells. Preparing yourself before school is really important. You will be step ahead from your friends. Take your books a week before the school start and take a look at chapters you will learn during semester. I always do that before I start school. I usually read the first chapter from each subjects that I will learn that semester and make a summary from what I read. It help you, really. Especially when you have 14 subjects that you have to take at school *huft*

2. Pay attention to your teacher

If Hermione didn’t pay attention to Herbology, Ron would be dead because of devil’s snare.If she didn’t pay attention to Prof. Flitwick, We wouldn’t see her make a feather fly. Pay attention to your teacher! You may find some information that you can’t get in your textbook but it come out during the exams. I have this kind of teacher, so whenever she say something important, I always write it down. And that’s why the next step would be…

3. Take a note!

Yes! Remember although some of the class are really boring, it won’t kill you if you take a note. And beside, taking a note make you stay awake during class. During Prof. Binns class, Harry and Ron started to play Hangman but Hermione keep writing down on her book, and when the exams start, the boys have to borrow Hermione’s note. See?You never know when you gonna need it.  It doesn’t have to be clean and neat at the time, just write it as long as you understand what you have written. Then at home, you could take out your note and write it all over again. 

4. Don’t hesitate to ask

Hermione asks when she wanted to know more about Chambers of Secrets. She even arguing with Umbridge because of that-kindergarten-DADA-Textbook. By asking and think critically we could understand what we learn better. You don’t have to shy, just ask your teacher, they won’t eat you anyway. I found this phrase that say “Just ask; you may look stupid for 10 seconds but better than look stupid for your whole life” and I agree with that. 

5. Speak it out

Don’t hesitate to answer the question or aguing some facts with your friends or teacher during discussion. It helps you in many way. Especially in critical thinking, elaborate argument, speaking, and etc. And the bonus is, some teacher will pay attention to you and watch your back in the class and may give you some points in the end! Ten points to Gryffindor!

6. Practice, practice, practice!

Yep! Your knowledge have no value if you haven’t practicing. In the fifth year, Harry, Ron and Hermione along with DA members practicing their skills in Defense Against the Dark Arts. The results? an happy O.W.L report card! You don’t have to push yourself so hard. Just like them, start from small step. For example, you could practice math by anwering five question everyday. and after a week, you could adding to 10 questions/day. No need to study overnight for exams and you don’t have to be startled if your teacher suddenly said “Okay! Today we are going to have a quiz” because you always ready!

7. Reading

It’s hardly to miss during this series, but we always see Hermione with books, even when they’re on the run! That’s why Ron said this, “That’s Hermione, when in doubt, go to the library” Reading makes you smarter and I think everyone agree with this. Your memory will improve, more knowledge, vocabulary expansion and many others. What I mean with reading in this is NOT reading your textbooks. Reading your textbooks is a good thing, but better to touch books outside your textbooks. If you’re not a reading person, you could start by picking some classic children fairytale or magazines. If you’re into reading already, I dare you to try genres that 180degrees different from your shelf now. I’m going to give you links to reading list that I suggest you to try in another post. 

8. Enjoy it

Last but not least is to enjoy the process of studying itself. Hermione could survive her third year because she considering studying as a fun activities. She even take Muggle studies and still get excited about it! My online tutor said “The highest achievement of studying is when you found yourself enjoy it” Because when you enjoy it, you could understand it better and take you to the highest level of knowledge. 

Ps: Feedback welcome! :)


april study challenge / 18/04/17 -  How do you like to take notes? What method is your favorite?

so first of all i prefer to take notes with pen and paper, its just so much easier and quicker for me. i take notes during class and i always like doing it in points but sometimes its not possible but i just try to write down all i can and i sort it out later. either when i have time later on or before an exam i sometimes rewrite notes and then organize them in points and use different colour coding for each subject.

5 reasons your martial art sucks.

Martial arts of any kind are really considered a niche kind of ‘sport’. So we can assume that… not everyone likes it. Here are some reasons why.

1. You don’t learn how to fight.

You don’t. Face it, whatever martial art you are practicing, when you let yourself in an MMA cage fight or a Kickboxing match: you’re most likely screwed. And I put it nicely there. You can’t fight, it doesn’t work.

(… even in martial arts movies we’re portrayed as losers)

2. There’s a huge imbalance when it comes to diversity.

Now this might be local of course, but mostly the amount of male participants is (way) higher than females’. In my own dojo I’m one of the two (!) adult women. The demography is mostly better with the children, but it’s rarely 50/50.

3. You don’t earn any respect.

You thought getting into martial arts would finally land you some real respect and people would start treating you like a human being that is, in fact, awesome? Think again.
If they have even HEARD of your martial art and you don’t have to spend ten minutes explaining it, then you still get smacked in the face with the fact that people think martial arts are only for nerds who need help sticking up for themselves.

You might think: “Oh but you do Karate, that’s easy, everyone knows that.”
Not even close. I always have to explain that Karate isn’t Judo and explaining that my style of Karate has Jiu Jitsu in it makes the whole thing even more complicated..

4. It leaves you bruised and beaten.

I remember having to run back and forth to the coffee corner at my work to get another batch of wet towels to cool my extremely bruised finger, 4 days before my black belt exam. A bit awkward to say the least, especially since your sweet co-workers will ask what’s up.

Also, I came into school one day with a black eye. Everyone in school thought I had gotten into a fight. I just went along with it because… well because I didn’t want to admit I actually failed to deflect one of the many Frisbee discs that were thrown at me by two black belts.

5. It’s a real commitment.

There are people who just come in once a week to do their thing and that’s it. That’s fine, but if you really want to get somewhere and earn that black belt you have to invest. I trained 4 to 5 times a week for before I earned my black belt. I saw my training partner more than my actual partner. Naturally that took a lot of understanding from my partner, not everyone can do that.

Well that sounds like a royal drag, why would I even start?

1. You learn something more than just fighting.
You might not be a cage fighter, but you do learn how to defend yourself. You learn the of the ways of budo. You strengthen your soul, your mind, your body, everything. A true budoka is mostly not just a good fighter, but also a good person.

2. Men everywhere
Okay so the girls aren’t as represented yet as the guys are. And yes there are an overwhelming amount of Caucasian males that run the show…
Welcome to the world. If you mind the lack of women in your dojo, invite them! Encourage them to try out, encourage others to bring women in! Make sure that diversity is happening, in every way possible.

Until my brown belt, I never even met a female sensei.
I never had a female sensei teach me. Now, I AM ONE. 

Lead, by example.

3. You don’t earn any respect?
Well, I might’ve lied a little. Look in your school years, you don’t get any respect (sorry). They’ll just sneer at you and ask you to ‘give ‘em a little show’. What I hope is that you have earned your own respect and are able to say no to those losers who make your life miserable.

In the corporate world however, it is respected if you are (still) doing something you love as a hobby and actually acclaimed some sort of title in it (like a black belt or a teacher’s license). Also, martial arts mostly mean that people are calm, collected, good listeners and disciplined people. All good traits if you ask me!

4. You’ll get beat up.
Only a little at times…? Look, if you didn’t like it a little at the very least, you probably quit already. But you know what? I’m just going to put it out there: getting a punch or a kick will toughen you up. Now I’m not saying beating children is okay (never). But getting hit the first time is huge shock and you’ll cry, the second time you’ll have a scare and a sniffle, the third time you might already be able to suck it up and continue. Not because you’ve been yelled at to do so, but because you are training yourself mentally.

That commitment
One of my sensei-in-life (a.k.a. mother’s) sayings is: there is always a choice. You might not feel like it, but there is always a choice.
And she is right. If you cannot fit that extensive training program in your busy life, then don’t. If you are mentally not ready to commit even though someone might ask it, you can perhaps try it, but if it really doesn’t go that well, then don’t.

The reason you are doing this is because it is FUN.

By the way: you’ll never get it perfectly right, ever.

But you know what?

It brings you: joy, friends, a healthier body, a peaceful mind, a longer lifespan, inner strength, laughter, perseverance, discipline, this ‘amazing’ blog, a feel of home in the dojo, some great stories to tell and most of all: FUN. That’s all I need.

Come back alive and I’ll tell you (Peter Parker x Reader)

Request: I’m not sure if I’ve asked this yet but I wondered if you could write Peter being all “In case I die, do you want to go out with me?” And the hero reader answers “Don’t die and I’ll tell you”

A/N: I promise my next imagine will be the Tattooed Heart request -I love the idea, but I don’t really know how to start the imagine, and that’s why I’m struggling to write it. I’m so sorry!

Being best friends with Peter Parker had never been easy. You had always had to tend his wounds -when you were children, because of the bullies; and now that you were teenagers, because of him being Spiderman. But you would never stop being his best friend. He was always there for you -he always helped you with homework, he always bought you chocolate when you were on your period, and most importantly, he always tried to be with you even when Spiderman was needed, making sure you were okay with him leaving before doing so.
‘’I aced that exam, [Y/N], I’m telling you’’ Peter said, a smile on his face.
‘’You always do, Peter’’ you answered, shaking your head and rolling your eyes, a smile on your face as well. ‘’My parents aren’t home until later tonight, do you think I can stay at yours?’’ you asked him. You didn’t mind being home alone, but you preferred being with Peter. You lived in the same apartment building, a few floors down, so you didn’t have a problem with leaving his house at late night.
‘’You know you can’’ he said, throwing his arms around your shoulders. You tried not to focus on that, not to focus on the way your heart was beating faster than normally.
You walked in silence, happy that you could spend the afternoon with Peter and hoping his duties as Spiderman wouldn’t ruin it.
‘’Damn,’’ Peter said, catching your attention ‘’look at that car. There must be someone rich visiting a neighbor.’’
You nodded and didn’t give it much thought, taking the elevator with Peter.
‘’Hey, Aunt May’’ Peter said, his arm still around your shoulders.
‘’How was school today?’’ May asked.
‘’Okay’’ Peter answered, removing his arm from your shoulders to leave the keys and his backpack on the counter. You instantly missed it, but said nothing. ‘’There is this crazy car parked outside…’’ his words were cut off as he saw Tony Stark sitting on his couch next to his aunt, his eyes opening wide.
‘’Oh, Mr. Parker’’ Tony said, a smirk on his face.
‘’Um… Wha-What are you doi–hey! Um, I’m-I’m-I’m-Peter’’ Peter stuttered, crossing his arms to stop his hands from moving.
You zoned out, looking between both men and furrowing your brows. You didn’t realize the conversation was over until Peter’s arm touched your shoulder, bringing you back to reality.
‘’Uh, you know, can [Y/N] come?’’ he asked, a small smile on his face. ‘’She knew about the grant as well.’’
You didn’t understand anything he said, but nodded anyway, not wanting to be excluded from their conversation.
You got into Peter’s room and sat on his bed, your back resting against the headboard. All your hopes about having a relaxing night with Peter went away as Tony got a kind of phone out, showing some videos of Spiderman. You zoned out again, too upset to want to pay attention.
‘’Not even your…unusually attractive Aunt? I guess your girlfriend does -she is here, after all’’ Tony said, pointing at you.
Your head rose, a blush covering your cheeks.
‘’We’re not-uh, we’re not dating’’ you quickly said, your eyes moving to Peter and seeing him blushing as well. ‘’We’re just friends. But if you are talking about Spiderman, yes, I do know’’ you said, nodding your head softly.
After the embarrassment, you zoned out again, just wanting him to be gone already so Peter would tell you he needed to leave as well.
When he finally left the room, you got up from Peter’s bed and you stood at the door of his room, your hands on the pockets of your sweatshirt.
‘’Mrs. Parker, I’m going to take Peter with me to the Stark Tower so he’ll get used to everything. It would be great if I could take him right now. Is that okay with you?’’ Tony asked, a flirtatious smile on his lips.
‘’Yes, of course!’’ May said, a huge smile on her face, proud of her nephew.
Peter stood next to you, a nervous look on his face as he started to pack. You helped him silently, choosing some t-shirts for him.
‘’I’m sorry’’ he whispered.
‘’I know’’ you whispered back, too tired of being ditched to even argue with him. ‘’It’s fine.’’
He knew it wasn’t fine, and you knew he knew, but there was nothing neither of you could do.
You walked with him downstairs, Tony a few feet in front of you. You were not ready to have Peter leave for a week, but you knew he was needed.
When Tony got inside the car, Peter left his bag in the trunk and turned to you, a small smile on his face.
‘’I don’t know where I’m getting the courage to say this from, but’’ he started, looking straight into your eyes ‘’in case I die, do you want to go out with me? You know, it would be nice dying knowing we dated, even if it was for a-‘’ his words were cut off by your lips, pressed firmly against his, your hand grabbing his t-shirt.
‘’Come back alive and I’ll tell you’’ you whispered when you broke apart, your foreheads pressed against the other’s. You gave him one last small kiss and run back into the building, a smile on your face as you got into your house.

Needless is to say, he came back alive, and even bruised, he took you on a date, a huge grin on his face as he told you how he beat Captain America and Ant-Man.
