i hate this photo why do you exist

HELP....

I’m not really sure if I can survive in this studyblr environment where aesthetics and color coordination, pastels and expensive pens, muji and other brands are the only things that sell. Pretty stuff that would probably leave me broke and pictures clicked with DSLR and edited with photoshop would waste my time and seeing no notes on my post because of the lack of material would leave me disappointed. I am not only speaking for me but also for other smol studyblrs who are here in search of some inspiration and here to provide some too. I know pretty is nice but there is so much more importance in just achieving what you want by taking inspiration for the notes and weekly spreads. I’m not speaking against any studyblr who follows aesthetic but I’m speaking for the blogs that cannot. I just want people to see beyond the colors and see the hard work.

Maybe the lighting isn’t the best but do your thing and post it. Be confident of what you are doing, bend the existing studyblr norms lets create new ones where the hardwork and content, the organization and neatness and the efforts and thought matter more than your mildliners and washi tape. Lets break the norms small studyblrs and create something that’s your own. Maybe there might be some just looking at pictures and thinking that can never match the photos of @emmastudies or any other super famous studyblr. That is not the point of the community. The reason why it exists is to give you another reason to study. So no matter how bad your notes look today just pick up your phone click the picture and put it up on tumbrl and give the others some real inspiration. Just tell them pretty isn’t everything. if you just manged to do it, it works too.

PS. no hate to blogs that follow the pretty rule{I kinda do it too} also no hate to @emmastudies​ I love your blog. This is just for the people who are still staring at their screens and feel they cannot do this. STUDYBLR IS FOR YOU BY YOU MAKE IT YOUR OWN AND ROCK IT. THERE ARE NO RULES.

Quinn smiled politely up at her date as they stood in line at her favourite cafe. Those kind brown eyes met hers and a sweet grin crossed his lips. He was handsome, with his dark brown hair longer on top and shorter on the sides. The leather jacket and motorcycle boots was a stark comparison of the caring man that had picked up her groceries when she ran smack dab into him outside the store. She liked the edge, though, especially the motorcycle he promised to take her out on one day.

Of course, that would mean their first date went smoothly, and it had only just started. But she hoped it went well, hoped that she would fall for those warm eyes like she had the startling blue pair she hadn’t been able to stop thinking about.
