So I've been wanting to set up a study blog but I'm kind of afraid to because my handwriting is really big and horrible, and I'm horrible at organizing. I just don't know, every studyblr (that's what it's called right?) is super duper organized and has the neatest handwriting like yours and ???

Nah honestly don’t even worry about that aspect of it because sure the majority of the output you see from the studyblr community is this #aesthetic shit that I myself am guilty of trying way too hard to achieve when it’s really not necessary and detracts from the actual purpose of the studyblr community: to encourage productivity and self improvement and helping others. Behind every single “perfect” studyblr photo is 30 minutes spent writing a fucking title the right way, aching hands and wrists from writing unnaturally tidily, 637 deleted photos that were taken prior to you nailing that perfect shot, time spent manipulating the lighting so it’s just right and then manipulating the image further with exposure and filter settings to make it look even more perfect. Like honestly that shit might get you notes but that’s not what studyblr is about in my opinion. You don’t have to play into that aspect of the studyblr community in order to reap rewards from it. You can learn so much here without needing to pander to that kind of thing. I say go for it and don’t get disheartened when people have better handwriting/tidier notes than you/ more organised desks than you because that says nothing about them as a person or their intelligence.

When I think about the future I become depressed. I am the best version of myself as in I pray 5 times a day, don't engage in haram stuff at all and yet I'm not getting help from Allah regarding my future what I want to be or motivation. Why? What's wrong with me?

I am not best person to advice on such issue but remember we should rely on Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala more than our efforts when we just see our efforts it will make us more anxious and depress that what will happen next. We should know that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala plan are better than our wishes. So try your best what you want to achieve in life and leave the rest to Allah. He knows what’s best for us. Make dua and ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala for help never think that He is not helping us. Our dua are always accepted as narrated in hadith:

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Any Muslim who makes a supplication containing nothing which is sinful, or which involves breaking ties of relationship, will be given for it by Allah one of three things: He will give him swift answer, or store it up for him in the next world, or turn away from him an equivalent amount of evil.” Those who heard it said they would then make many supplications and he (peace be upon him) replied that Allah was more ready to answer than they were to ask.

(Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2257)

Lastly we always have something to improve in ourself and we shouldn’t think we are the best versions of ourself. Maybe outwardly we are the best version but from inside we need to have pure hearts and shouldn’t feel proud if we are doing something good; it’s from Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. We should be humble and ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala to accept our deeds.

May Allah make things easier for you.
Allahumma Ameen

I'm in med school right now, I have dyslexia and ADHD. I am not medicated and I want everyone to know that even though society looks down on us don't ever look down on yourselves. We are so much more than what's written on paper, don't let anyone try to stop you from achieving your goals - especially not yourself. You can do whatever you want, even if it seems very very hard!

You are awesome, Anon! Thank you for sharing!

anonymous asked:

My entire life I've wanted to be a doctor. But after unfortunate life events and probably because I'm not as intelligent as I had thought (definitely not for lack of trying) I am failing (undergraduate)college & realize my hopes of being a doctor are slipping away. What are other jobs in the medical/ science field (besides nurse, P.A., tech positions) that I could try? Do you know anyone in a similar position? my grades & GPA are not so good- I love the field I just don't think I get my GPA up

Hi anon! 

There are tons of jobs in healthcare right now! None of these jobs have any reflection on your intelligence or what you can achieve. Some people prefer to help people in other ways aside from being a physician! This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Physician assistant
  • Nursing (RN, NP, CNA, LVN, etc.)
  • Running clinical trials (I helped do that for awhile)
  • Occupational therapist
  • Physical therapist
  • Bioinformatics 
  • Epidemiologists
  • Medical technology (devices, electronic medical record development, etc.)
  • Technicians in various disciplines
  • Midwives

You asked if I knew anyone in a similar position, and in fact I know someone very well: me. I had to take my MCAT twice, I got two Cs and a handful of Bs, and my GPA was nothing glorious to behold. I applied to med school twice. Lots of personal crap along the way, too. Left me feeling pretty humbled. What I’m trying to say is that shitty things happen and you’re not alone. You’re definitely not alone.

So let me ask you something: how badly do you want to be a doctor? I’m seriously asking you: how badly do you want this? Are you willing to take the risk, despite the chance of failure? What does becoming a doctor mean to you?

Do it for yourself, and if you can’t bring yourself to do that, do it for me. I want you to turn off your phone, sit in a quiet place, and think really damn hard about this. If you truly want this, you’re going to find a way to address this GPA, your self-doubt, whatever else is keeping you from doing what you need to do. 

And if you really don’t want to be a doctor as much as you previously thought, that’s okay, too. There are MANY ways to help people, and we need every person we can get!

Hey! I really need help... I'm procastinating very much and i don't know what to do, i always try to change it in the next morning but is always the same. I'm feeling sad and lazy everyday. Did you have some tips for it? (Sorry my bad english)

hello there! sorry about how youve been feeling lately bby, ik how you feel :( for me, some of the best motivators consist of reminding myself of my goals and aspirations, envisioning myself living having achieved everything i want, and letting myself actually feel the kind of satisfaction that is only acquired through being in control of one’s life. 

i know its crazy difficult to actively initiate large amounts of change regarding how you conduct your life; let your future comfort and happiness fuel your need to succeed in the present. 

your english was great as well :-)

hi leo... I hope I'm not bothering you but I have something that's been bothering me and I thought maybe you'd have some advice for me. I love drawing, I've been drawing since I was tiny. I also love cartoons and making cartoons would be a dream come true for me. the thing is I'm just... not good at it. I'm 17 and even though I've been drawing so long I can't make anything look right. I just don't know what to do and I feel like I have no chance for a future in art with my age and skill level

dude, you’re only 17! you have so many years ahead of you! i know it might seem like you have to achieve your goals by the time youre in your early 20s, but that’s not true in the slightest. something i understand now is, even though im already 21, i still have tons of time to try out other things in my life besides making art. i could learn how to write music, or sing, or act, or anything else ive ever wanted to do. it is never, ever too late to get better.

and, yknow, if you have the resources, that’s what classes are for! idk what classes youve taken already, but figure drawing would be a great way to build a foundation for your art. if youre not happy with where you are, it might be good to take a deep breath and start back at the basics.

it took kimmo timonen 17 years, but he won the stanley cup.

you might not be achieving your dreams right now.  you might feel like they’re so far out of your reach that you could never possibly get there.  just keep trying, keep reaching, and you’ll get there one day.  even if it takes 17 years.

anonymous asked:

I have a massive problem with motivation. I can never bring myself to start studying or do my homework - possibly because I don't believe I can accomplish anything and because the workload is intense - and it's got me into trouble a few times. My teachers now know that I'm struggling so they've excused me (just) but I don't want to spend the next half of the semester being pathetic and doing nothing. Have you got any advice?

Hello. I have made a similar post before (X) so I will try to provide you other tips. 

First and foremost, belief in oneself is important. It is something that provides you courage and hope when others tell you something is impossible to achieve. Everyone is capable. We might struggle with certain subjects and tasks, but in the end we are all capable to achieving what we set our mind on.

Motivation helps us give a small push to start working on a task, yes, but it is habit and discipline that are much more important. Motivation can fade away in the blink of an eye. But, if you develop a habit, then even during the days where your motivation cannot be found, you will push yourself to continue to work and progress. Developing a habit takes time. It takes an average of ~66 days. 

So, it is best to get started on whatever task you wish to accomplish.

Surely, you can motivate yourself, by checking out Motivational Youtube video, #studyspo on Tumblr, #fitspo… And it will motivate you. But, you are the one to decide it you are willing to fight and push yourself to achieve what you dream of achieving. 

  1. Set a Goal:  The goals can be from small goals to life goals. Normally, if no one is laughing at your goals, then it really does mean that it is too small. Try to set large goals. But, find the reason why you wish to achieve this goal. 
  2. *The reason why will help you overcome tiredness, laziness, and every other alibi. It is important to keep in mind why you are doing all of this. The reason is what pushes me to work everyday on my goals despite every single excuse that I can give myself.
  3. Planning: You cannot just get make your dream become a reality in a night. It takes time. It takes effort. And, it takes planning. Think about it. Everyday, what are you doing in order to accomplish your goal? What effort are you putting in? How much have you progress from where you have started? Dreaming is easy, but turning that dream into reality is not. Make sure that you are being productive. Somedays, you might not progress as much as you want to, but any progress is better than no progress at all.
  4. Developing Habits: As I have stated beforehand, it takes ~66 days to form a habit. So, I would recommend that you start as soon as you have a set goal and reason. Everyday that you work on your goal, mark it down on your calendar/planner/somewhere where you can see it. By marking down the days you work on your goals, you will develop a chain. The day that you do not work on your goals at all, do not mark anything. The ~66 days are consecutive days. 
  5. By missing a day, you must start over again. This is an efficient system. The first ten days may be hard, but after that ten day mark, you start to push yourself to work on your goal everyday. Just because you do not want to break the chain. Check out this link for more details:(X)

Best of Luck.

Hey. So i know that there's a difference between weight loss and fat loss and i was wondering what is that difference exactly. I'm trying to lose some fat but i don't want to lose muscles...what should i do to achive my goal?

Do it progressively.

Most people make the mistake to rush it so they can lose weight as fast as they can. This will most likely lead to muscle mass loss, which is is unhealthy.

If you want to achieve your goal, start small by decreasing ~200/300 calories weekly. Then adjust according on how your body react to it.

Also, unless you’re preparing for a competition there is no need to do an extreme your caloric deficit. 

Here’s a good guide on how to lose weight, the right way:

Do you ever see Louis right now and like how approachable he is and how just Louis he is a part of a world wide famous band and he's just so humble and sweet and think about how he literally could become someone like Azoff, in the sense of that business feel and to us he'll be Louis because he still will be Louis but he'll have that respect from everyone and we'll keep talking about tiny louis who is just so cute. I don't know how to explain it but I'm proud now and know i'll be even prouder!

Why are you trying to make me cry?

I’m already so so fucking proud of him, he achieved so much but he’s still that absolutely wonderful, lovely, humble, kind person he was before 1D and he keeps spending his free time doing charities but he also keeps a focus on supporting new talents cause he knows how hard it is and what a great chance he got and no matter how famous they got he keeps being grateful for things like no control project and thanked us at every concert. He gets so much shit from the media but he keeps doing the best he can to prove himself even tho we’re all here to support him 200% cause we know the real Louis and he’s such a wonderful person, I couldn’t love him more

I can't seem to find balance in my life. I'm either giddy or absolutely terrified. I try so hard to define myself, but I'm not even sure what I like anymore, or if I am even capable of enjoying myself unless I'm drunk. Everything about me pisses me off and I have no patience for anyone. I assume everyone will hate me as much as I hate myself so I put up a wall and I don't know how to bring it down. I define my self worth by my achievements, of which there are few. How do I change this?

Balance comes from the space in you that is beyond emotions, beyond your thoughts of yourself and beyond all these ups and downs. Getting in touch with this space is the beginning of self love and stillness, calmness and peace in your life.

You get in touch with this by just realizing when you are up and when you are down. You realize that you are just a passenger on these emotions that they are not you. That there are emotions in you but they aren’t you. This comes from observing these emotion, just feeling them. Take a look inside yourself each chance you can. See what is going on inside yourself. What are the feelings you have, be curious where do you feel them. Feel the ups as downs, no matter how bad, how painful just simply give these emotions space in you and realize you are the space that they reside in. Breathe and notice your breathing whenever you can remember to.

Sit eyes closed with the emotions raging in you, these ups and downs, the giddiness and the anxiety. Try to notice that you are feeling the emotions. That you are not those emotions. That you are the space, the space where the emotions take place. You are the house and the emotions are the furniture. The more you can sense this and get in touch with this space in you the easier life will come and you won’t be run by your and emotions. You’ll just be the space. You won’t be dragged along by these powerful emotions anymore.

There is a quote by Pema Chodron that illustrates this beautifully: You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.

I hope this is of some help.



Happy Birthday Kand Minhyuk!

What can I say that hasn't been said about you yet? I truly don't know, a lot of people can express their feelings for your in such beautiful words and I regularly also try to express my feelings into words. Now that I really need to say what I want to say, now that the day of your birthday has finally arrived...well, all the words that I have been trying to say.... all the words that I wanted to say today and that I had been practicing...well...I don't really know where to start, I'm so awkward at the moment, it feels as though you were here next to me and I feel like hiding my face because I'm so embarrassed at the moment for a reason I can't understand...

Minhyuk, happy birthday, I guess that's what needs to be said fisrt. I wish you all the happiness in the world in this day and every day in your life, I only wish that you can be happy and achieve everything you want, that everything that you decide to do goes well and that you enjoy every day to the max and make the most beautiful memories every day.

....I'm running out of words, oh my god this is so difficult, not because I have nothing to say to you but because all the words are a mess inside my head, they are a total mess and I don't know what to say, where to start, I was out the whole day thinking that I should come back early to post my birthday wishes to you, I was thinking what to say but now everything is gone.
You understand though, right? Everything I feel about you is so easy and yet so difficult to express in words. In normal days I'm always here on this side of the world expressing my love to you, but when it comes to put it in beautiful words or when it comes to write down my thoughts...geez I feel my heart aching and I feel myself running short of breath.

I notice so many things about you, you came into my life so suddenly and started to make it better just like that and I want to thank you for that. I'm always saying stuff like ''you're my oxygen, you're my air, you're the reason that I breathe, I live for you'' and such, it may be a little borderline creepy but when I see you...I do run short of breath, the effect you have on me is that strong. I don't know how it happened, I don't know how I suddenly started stanning you...it just happened, it happened so naturally and now you're part of my everyday life, seeing your smile is part of my every day life and I'm happy that I can see it, your smile makes me smile, and I want you to smile every day, I want you to be happy, above all, I want you to be happy.

The moment I noticed that it was you the one who became my ulti bias... I knew there was no turning back, once someone falls for you...well... it's hard to forget you, at least to me, I'm sure that i wouldn't, you're my ideal type, you're the person I like the most in this world, you're someone I want people to cherish because you deserve all the love in this world. You're hardworking, sometimes you kind of look down on yourself and understimate you, but you know? you're the best there is, you really are the best. I would say ''don't let anyone tell you otherwise'' but you're the one who says it isn't like that so I don't know what to say OTL. You know you are cute right? But I won't say it since you dislike being called cute.

I hope you one day show us how you make all those floral arrangements that Yonghwa mentioned once. :) It would be nice to see. 

um.... I guess this it for the meantime... I don't know what else to say, not because I don't know but because the words left me even though I wanted to write so much about you but right now... my words left me. I'm so sorry, I wish I could say more, I really want to say more...

Well... I love you, but you know that right? even though I'm just one more fan in the sea of fans that follow you, I hope that one day you get to know...how much I love you. At least for now I know that you saw the heart I made for you back in January =) And again, I love you...so much I can't even express it with words.

May this day bring you happiness and lots of cake =)
