Ways to Cheer Yourself Up (When wanting to be alone) - 50 top things to do
  • 1. Go ON Tumblr, believe it or not, we don't care where you're from, what you do, how you're being you, as long as you are being you, you're pretty much welcomed on here. That's why i love it. Unless of course you are homophobic or judgemental or ignorant - then the people will speak for themselves, we look out for each other here.
  • 2. Read Books; escapism is a wonderful thing
  • 3. Listen to music; and no - not the sad, 'ALL BY MYSELF' type music, but the kickass songs like 'I will Survive' or 'Loser Like Me' just celebrate yourself for being awesome, because we know you are; even if others don't; especially then actually.
  • 4. Become your own superhero. Every single one of you have a talent or a dream. Follow up on that talent/dream. YOU ARE WORTH IT, and you can be whoever you want to be.
  • 5. DISNEY MOVIES. Unless you absolutely hate bursting out into song - better cut of highschool musical and glee while were at this, then Disney is the best pick me up ever.
  • 6. Watch your favourite TV shows. Remind yourself why life can be awesome. Watching your fav characters usually means you can relate to them.
  • 7. Go on walks - it's very pretty outside, and sometimes our heads can be overloaded with information or stress, I advise calming music and a nice walk outside in comfortable clothes.
  • 8. Have a diary. A friend of mine recently bought me one, and it's a godsend because all the anger, or emotions I feel, I try to put in the diary rather than putting it out on others. It also calms you down. I feel better when I write.
  • 9. Speaking of writing...if you enjoy it- WRITE. Writing is a wonderful way to escape. You can put all your emotions into your characters and they just come to life. I tend to do that when I'm stressed.
  • 10. If writing is not your thing then bake. I've actually ironically read in a fan fiction where a character would bake when stressed and try out new recipes, this character tried making butterbeer; maybe be adventurous; have a food blog or something to keep you occupied.
  • 11. Be With Your Pets - Pets are loyal creatures, and they love you, even when you're being a pain in the ass, and I hear they're very good listeners.
  • 12. Now I don't know about you, but I LOVE Musicals. If you are a musical fanatic like me and you're feeling a little down, my dears; listen to those awesome voices, because sometimes we just - need - a break (Also, if you haven't watched RENT, watch it - NODAYBUT TODAY...or Starkid...Starkid make the most funniest musical parodies, even if you don't like musicals I suggest it, and if you're not enjoying their YouTube Channel, then I'll eat my own hat).
  • 13. ASK ME ANYTHING. If you really want to talk to somebody but you don't want to talk to people you know and you just want to get things out, my ASK box is always open.
  • 14. Find a hobby. If you don't really want to talk to anybody, that's okay, sometimes we need to just have some 'me time'. In my me times, I usually deactivate from Facebook, and just focus on things that make me happy. Like; Puzzles, Sudoku, Games, writing, cooking, singing, whatever it is...travelling even. Enjoy yourself.
  • 15. Travel. Maybe being stuck in the same place is the problem, maybe you're head wants to be in a place where it can ACTUALLY THINK.
  • 16. Go Hiking. I suppose Hiking is similar to walking but if you're an outdoor person, this is a great way to clear your head and to feel fresh.
  • 17. Hit The Gym. Or even do your own exercises. I like to walk - do crunches, and I love Zumba. I love dancing. If you love being active, this is also another way to clear your mind from negative things.
  • 18. GO SEE A MOVIE!!! When was the last time you had fun? Even if it's just by yourself. You're allowed to treat yourself. Go, enjoy, be surrounded by people, even if they're strangers.
  • 19. If you like coffee, treat yourself for one at a local cafe. Who knows, you might meet your coffee soulmate in a cafe one day.
  • 20. STOP thinking Negative. Have a Pros/Cons List. Try not to outweight the Pros list with the Cons. Please?
  • You are good enough.
  • 21. Write down a bucket List, and start ticking them off. Having goals and dreams is healthy. If you have dreams, then you have a direction of where you're going.
  • 22. Get help. It's okay, if you're head is in a really bad place to reach out to people. It really is okay.
  • 23. Help others. If you're not sure what to do with yourself at all, be useful to other people less fortunate than you. Volunteer! Work with Charity, Feed the homeless, help the guide dogs association.
  • 24. Smile more. It looks good on you, believe me. Spend time with your guilty pleasures, my guilty pleasure is binge watching glee
  • 25. Please DO NOT go to a pub to drink to ease your mind, if you are going to do that, do it with a friend, or somebody close.
  • 26. Eat Chocolate. Okay yes while society says NO DON'T EAT THE FATTY FOOD. Hey; screw them. If you feel better eating a bit of junk go for it. There's nothing wrong with eating a whole pizza or tub of ben and jerry ice cream when feeling upset - just try not to make TOO much of a habit : p
  • 27. REBLOG YOUR FOLLOWERS POSTS, you might be surprised that you aren't the only one feeling the way you're feeling, you might be surprised by how much you're forgetting that hey - it's gonna be alright.
  • 28. Do something nice for your neighbour. Ah who knows, have you ever actually talked to them? Maybe they might be lonely too.
  • 29. Have a GAMES Night. A very good friend of mine loves Games. If You LOVE Games, then hell have a marathon of them. Play the sims, be in control.
  • 30. Speaking of marathons...dun dun dun - MOVIE MARATHON, I Don't Know About You Guys, But Having A Harry Potter Movie Marathon always cheers me Up. WITH FOOD Of course, and good company, but this is about cheering yourself up, so if you don't want company, that's okay.
  • 31. Draw. I love drawing too. I suppose I'm more of the creative person. There are a lot of different types of people out there, maybe you like solving things - do those fancy cube things Idk what they're called. If you are like my brother and you love Maths, then maybe you can tutor someone. On one hand you're helping someone, and doing something you like doing, just like I'm drawing because I like drawing.
  • 32.Be with kids. believe it or not, kids are the most innocent little munchkins, and they honestly don't care what you look like, if you play hide and seek with them they'll be thrilled, so long as you're nice to them, they're generally nice to you... but be warned, they tell it how it is too. I talk a bit different. The most popular thing they've said to me was "Is that why you talk funny, because of the things in your teeth?" (They've also never really seen braces before) I even had one kid determined to get me to sing 'Everything is awesome' I'll never forget that because this kid clearly didn't care how I sounded, and just wanted me to sing with her. I felt great.
  • 33. If you're into Fairy Tales, Please Please Read Chris Colfer's The Land Of Stories series 1-4. It's an amazing series, and you almost forget what world you're in once you start reading. Plus, there's more coming (I'm a little excited)
  • 34. Watch Pixar Movies. You can't go wrong.
  • 35. GO TO HOGWARTS. Harry Potter Fan? Visit - Platform 9 3/4s in London, or go to the Harry Potter World, or if you can't actually visit these sites, go on Pottermore.
  • 36. Read Fan Fiction, you might not be a harry potter fan, but whatever fandom you are in, believe me sometimes Fan Fictfion Cheer me up. I adore Glee *Don't Judge Me* and Dalton is the best thing ever. Or Little Numbers...or Both. They cheer me up big time.
  • 37. Role play. If you like superheroes or characters, go be with the crowd. I believe they have events like Comic Con, and on Facebook they even have Events for such things, go be with strangers! So long as it's safe of course.
  • 38. Write a letter to the person who inspires you most and send it. You might be surprised by an answer.
  • 39. Pick up your instrument. Don't ignore your musical talent if you do have a musical talent. Remember, you're worth it. I don't care what you've done. Pick, It Up.
  • 40. Maybe go visit your family? I know this is about 'quality me time' but if you haven't seen your family in such a long time or are at a distance. Maybe being surrounded by something familiar is what you need.
  • 41. Change Careers. If you're not enjoying what you're doing or studying, change it. I remember in highschool a teacher said you might change your job 10 - 12 times before getting it right. It'okay, you just haven't found where you're meant to be yet.
  • 42. Enter a competition - Who knows what will come from it, take risks.
  • 43. If you're a risk-taker, challenge yourself. IDK how you're going to do that, but google has some pretty good answers. Even ask your tumblr followers, they follow you for a reason after all.
  • 44. Go on a boat. Go Fishing! I don't know, it's not my thing, but if you like fishing, then hell - go out there and fish.
  • 45. Find time for yourself, are you working too much? Maybe you are working too much. You know life doesn't stop for nobody, and if you keep pushing yourself so hard, time will go so fast and you won't realise how much of that time you could have spent on your own self.
  • The world is not going to end if you treat yourself.
  • 46. You ARE Good Enough. Listen to my words. Sometimes encouragement is all we need, when people feel hopeless, or like everything's gone wrong. It's gonna be okay. I promise, just hang in there.
  • 47. Write Down Quotes that Inspire You. I have a wall of these, and of people that inspire me too, and it reminds me of the good things in life when I'm in a crappy mood.
  • 48. Find something to do. If you're not doing anything, go take up a course, research things that interest you, you might be surprised by what comes from it. Join a community that enjoys doing things you do.
  • 49. Go To The Beach - If you live in Australia like me, visiting the beach is actually really calming and me and my best friend always would go on a random drive, and drive up to a beach or a look out, and it was always calming. Enchanting too sometimes. Maybe we forget about the place we live in, and what's exciting about the place. If you're in New York, visit Broadway or The Statue Of Liberty, or if you're in London, go to the London Bridge, or the Eye, visit the Eiffel Tower if you're in Paris...just go Anywhere.
  • 50. Take a random journey. Go on a train to somewhere new, go on a road trip. You never know what's around the corner.

hey emma! can you please give advices on how to study effectively on maths and geometry? I'm currently on my 8th grade, i always do well in school except for those subjects. i find those subjects really hard and i don't know what to do now but i want to make my parents happy :-(

anonymous asked:

hey so i haven't always gotten the Best grades, mainly because i don't study well for tests. now that i'm entering 9th grade, though, i'd like to change that, but i'm not sure how. do you have any tips for to get my shit together and start studying better / getting better grades?

I applaud you for wanting to change your approach to grades! Some useful tips that have helped me through my high school experience:

  • ask questions in class. this is especially helpful for me in math bc it’s my toughest subject!! remember that there are no stupid questions, and it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you’re really embarrassed to ask for help, you can always talk to your teacher at break or after class.
  • ask your friends to tutor you. Idk about you but I have some seriously genius friends that I’m really close to. IF you don’t have time to ask for homework help while you’re at school, you can always have a tutor-sesh through Skype, FaceTime, or HouseParty!
  • check your grades frequently to see what you’re missing or need to catch up on. this will also help you to know how high you need to score on upcoming tests for you to go up a grade. the Grades app is perfect for this and I check it all the time!
  • put your phone away, leave it upstairs, or use it until it runs out of battery. even if you’re trying to convince yourself that it’s helping you study, it’s probably just tempting you to go on instagram every 5 minutes.
  • take breaks. let your eyes rest, eat something, drink some water, or go to the bathroom. going so much work at one time is NOT healthy for you mentally or physically!
  • don’t wait last minute to finish an assignment unless it is absolutely necessary!!! Set a small amount of time every day until the assignment is due to get it done little by little. That way, you’ll still have time to do assignments from other classes and you won’t be drowning in work the night before it’s due.
  • do the study guides even if you’re teacher isn’t going to grade them.
  • take advantage of the resources your teachers may put online. this could be anything from study guide pdf’s to videos.
  • my best advice to anyone trying to get their shit together is JUST START. Tbh starting is the hardest part. know what you have to do and take the time to do it. it won’t be easy or fast but you’ll be so grateful in the long run.

  • Touya: Well, I guess that makes it official. Everybody's paired off. Teachers get dates. Hell, even the school librarian sees more action than me. You ever think that the world is a giant game of musical chairs, and the music's stopped and we're the only ones who don't have a chair?
  • Yukito: All the time.
  • Attractive female classmate: Touya? I just wanted to thank you for helping me with math. You're really smart and kind, and I just wanted to tell you if there was anything that I could ever do to...
  • Touya: Do you mind? We're talking here. [taken aback, she rolls her eyes and leaves] So where were we?
  • Yukito: Wondering why we never get dates.
  • Touya: Yeah, so why do you think that is?

anonymous asked:

Congratulation on your grades!! So I want the same grades like you. I try and try but I don't get the grade that I want. Either it's my study method or I'm not college material.

Thanks! And I have some tips to hopefully help you out!

I keep really close track of what I’m getting on EVERYTHING in a class - I’m the person who will do the math to know exactly what I’m getting in a class and what I need to get on certain exams and assignments to get the grade I want. Sometimes this might be stressful if you aren’t doing as well as you want, but this really helps you gauge exactly how much you should be studying for each class to get close to the grades you want
Develop a consistent studying method - Once I find a way to study for a class that works for a class, I’ll stick to it for the whole semester. Here are some guides I’ve written that might help you with studying and taking exams! (But remember that everyone studies differently, so try out some different methods to see what works best for you)

Try to become friends with your professors - If you know your professors well, they’re much more likely to help you out compared to the kid who sits in the back, never says anything in class, and refuses to visit office hours. I know that speaking up in class and going to office hours causes anxiety for some people, but trust me when I say that I used to suffer from severe anxiety in class but after forcing myself to do and say things I normally wouldn’t, everything is SO much easier now. Plus, by visiting office hours and talking during class, you’re showing that you really want to do well in the class, and your professors will notice this. 
Accept that some classes are just hard and just because you didn’t get an A it doesn’t  mean you’re dumb - Some classes are hard and no matter how hard you study you might still not get an A. That’s okay! You don’t need straight As to be a good student. I don’t always have straight As; this semester I did really well because I was taking classes specifically for both my majors so I already knew a lot of things about the subjects and since they were for my majors, I knew what to expect and how to study for them. 

Good luck! I hope that these help you and you can get closer to where you want to be!

I need help :( I want to major in computer science and astrophysics, but I don't have the confidence to. I'm always so scared I won't understand the math, that I end up just not studying it. It's so stupid, I want to learn but I'm also too scared to attempt to. How do I combat this?

I actually asked my boyfriend because he was a computer science major that went through something similar. His response:

“You have to learn that doing poorly or not understanding something doesn’t mean you fail, per se. Rather it’s a stepping stone in the right direction. It means you’re learning. In other words: ‘Fail fast. Learn fast. Improve fast.’”

evergreenbooks  asked:

I can't study. No matter what I try (study in my room, use music, go outside, rewrite notes), I can't stay on task and I can't absorb the information. I've been fine not studying in the past, but now I'm feeling the pressure for my final exams and my last math test. I don't know what to do because the days of the tests/exams are coming up soon, and I want to be prepared. Please help me. *hugs*

Hello there! Well, for starters, I don’t think you actually can’t study. Because everyone can study! But what’s sometimes forgotten is that studying is a habit; it’s something that doesn’t come naturally to most people and most people need to really put effort into doing it. So trust me, you can totally do this!

It sounds like you’re really smart and are able to absorb information quite quickly, which is what has maybe prevented you from really buckling down and studying before. Lucky! But also unlucky, because when you do sit down to study, you can’t really focus when you do.

So my advice to you would be to start making studying a habit. That’s going to take a lot of time and effort and you’ll probably hate doing it most of the time! It sounds like you don’t think you actually can sit down and focus. But I’ve sneaked a peak at your Tumblr, and it looks as though you’re a big Tolkien fan. And whether you’ve just read the books or just seen the films or both, they’re all very lengthy and reading/watching them requires a lot of time!

So I think, if you want to be prepared, that you need to start studying. And you want to do that, so the first step is there! Now, to do the work. I’d start small, as you need to build up your “studying time”. Try studying for 15 minutes the first day. Just 15 minutes of sitting still and concentrating on studying. If that’s too much, start with 10! And every time you feel yourself getting distracted, forcibly pull your concentration back to the task at hand and focus. You can do this! The next day, do 30 minutes. And then 40. And then 50. Build it up to an hour. Two hours. Three hours. It will take time and you’ll be distracted a lot. It might help to read this really cool article on Forbes about the three phases you go through when forming a habit!

You can do this! I have faith in you! Lots of cuddles ❤️🎈 let me know if you need anything else and good luck! And let me know how your exams went!

5SOS PREFERENCES #110: STUDYING...
  • Luke: "Ugh, I simply can't understand this," you sighed, dropping your head on your notebook. "Ah, c'mon, babe. It can't be that hard," Luke sat crossed legged behind you in your bed, massaging your tense shoulders. "It's easy for you to say, Mr. 'I'll just go touring with my band and keep studying 'cause I'm a freaking genius'," you lifted your head, resting it on his shoulder. "Here, I'll help you," he chuckled, looking at your homework. You looked up at him, face serious as if he was lost in deep thoughts - which he probably was. Unconsciously, you leaned in and pecked his cheek, lips lingering there longer than it was necessary. "(Y/N)," Luke laughed, "Are you even paying attention to what I'm saying?". Of course!", you replied in a high pitched voice. "Then what did I just say?", he asked you, eyebrows raised. "You asked me if I was paying attention to you." "God, what am I going to do with you?!", he looked at you with a funny expression before taking your face on his hands and crashing your lips together. "Let's do this:", he mumbled against your lips, "I'll explain it again and, if you get this exercise right, then I'll give you a reward." "Ooh, I like the sound of that," you pecked his lip, waiting for him to begin explaining again.
  • Ashton: "Watcha doing?," Ashton asked, looking at your study table from behind your shoulder. "Studying," you replied. "Why?", he insisted. "'Cause I have an upcoming test," you sighed, knowing this conversation was going to take a while. "But studying is no fun," he whined. "It's funny you're saying that when you're not the one supposed to be studying," you laughed. "I feel your pain," he said, "Plus, I'm suffering quite a lot myself thinking of the things we could be doing while you're here studying." You rolled your eyes, not feeling tempted to answer him at the moment. The room went silent for a moment, and you wondered if Ashton had left you to study in peace - even though you hand't heard his footsteps. "I know you don't want to be sitting here and studying when you have a hot boyfriend ready to give you what you want," Ashton seductively whispered in your ear, leaving a trail of kisses down your neck. "My hot boyfriend ready to give me what I want is the reason why I'm failing in the first place," you moved your neck away from him, "And, right now, all that I want is some time to study. Could you please give me that?". "Fine, but only 'cause you look cute when you're begging," Ashton said, finally leaving you to your books - not before biting your neck.
  • Michael: "Michael, do you think you can help me with my homework?", you asked your boyfriend. "Babe, I'm the one who dropped out of school to be in a band, remember?", he reminded you. "Yeah, but you surely learned something there," you shrugged. "The only thing I learned there was that it's useless," he chuckled. "C'mon, Michael. I need help," you sighed. "Okay, okay. Let me see what I can do for you," he walked over to where you were, glancing at your books, "Oh, God. It's like I'm in hell again." "C'mon, Michael," you laughed, "You don't remember anything?". "Ah, I might remember some of it. But, mostly not. Let me see," he took your pencil, scribbling some things on a piece of paper. You curiously tried to read whatever it was he was writing, but couldn't understand a thing. "Yeah, I don't remember anything about Maths," he confirmed, "But, you know, I was always pretty good at Chemistry, and I think what you and I have is something we could work on." "Oh my God, Michael, you're so cheesy," you giggled. "Hey, at least I try," he defended himself, leaning in to kiss you.
  • Calum: "What is my beautiful girlfriend doing today?", Calum asked you. "Studying," you sighed, quite unhappy with that. "Need help?", he sat next to you on the bed. "Not wanting to sound rude, Cal, but you dropped out of school," you said sweetly. "That doesn't mean I wasn't a good student," he replied. "Yeah, but you'll only distract me," you stated. "Oh, I'll distract you?", he turned his head to look at you, "By doing things like this?", he put a hand on your thigh, sitting closer to you on the bed. "Or, maybe, by doing this?", Calum moved his hand higher up your thigh, leaning in closer to you. "Or something like this?", he said, connecting your lips and biting it. "Calum," you mumbled, not even sure yourself if that was a protest for him to stop or a moan as a hint to continue. "Or maybe I would distract you by looking super hot while you're trying to study," he pulled away from you completely. "Cal," you whined. "Aw, (Y/N), don't be like that," he stood up from the bed, "After all, you need to study and I'm just a rebel who dropped out of school." "Fuck you," you said under your breath, watching his smirking figure. "Better yet," he said, "Let me fuck you when you're finished," and, with a wink, he walked off.

Hey, I'm embarrassed to admit it but I think I like math. The problem is I SUCK at it... right now. I was wondering if you could recommend some website, list, or schedule to go by where I can teach myself the math I don't know, practice what I'm not good at, and review what I do know? I hope you, or your followers, can help me be a better math guy.

I know I just said Khan Academy to another person, but…give it a shot. Anyone else got an idea for doctorcollado here? (sorry to tell everyone you like math, but I wanted to give other people a chance to help you out).

I have such bad anxiety about going to my math class. My teachers mean and makes you look stupid and I don't know what to do to stop the anxiety

i do decently well in math, but a year or two ago I developed really bad anxiety during tests and quizzes. I have teachers who want you to succeed (as most do) and allow me to listen to music during the test & I sit in the front corner so I can’t get anxiety about who is finishing and how long it’s taking everyone else! It’s been really helpful to me.

I work at a place that does ABA therapy, I thought it was great at first, but slowly I started to question the helpfulness of it. I started asking how is telling a kid to copy me going to help him? What's wrong with him stimming when he dies math? It seems like the data in their "improvements" is manipulated. Then I started reading more about it, now I'm starting to think its not good at all and I don't want to cause harm. Please give me your view on ABA anyone else who sees it pls do.

There’s definitely a problem of ABA results being so “good” while ABA is still bad, because they do achieve their goals, but, like you said, a lot of those goals are, at best, pointless and, at worst, harmful (like getting a kid to stop stimming while they work - that’s only going to make their grades worse).

I’ve talked about my own opinion of ABA in the past here and you might also find this article helpful, it’s written by a former ABA therapist about why they left ABA.

I hope that’s helpful.

Does anyone else have anything to add?

Hi,I have wanted to be a astrophysicist for so long But my parents say i need to give it up becuse i can't do math well enough., But have existential depression, which i think is the reason why its so hard for me to concentrate so i can try to learn new things. I REALLY want to get better at math but it feels impossible because i feel like i don't care about improving even though i know i really do. I'm so confused.

If you want to be an astrophysicist, then that’s what you should be! And yeah it’ll be hard, because math is hard for you, but you should still keep working at it. It just might take you longer than others but you’ll still get there!

Can I suggest KhanAcademy? It’s got free math programs, and hopefully the lessons will be presented in a way that catches your attention. It might help you improve your math capabilities. You can do it! I’m already super proud of you for knowing what you want in life and wanting to do better even when you have to deal with your depression. That’s great and you’re great.

You’re gonna be an amazing astrophysicist someday!
