Even More Things To Add To Your Bullet Journal

Hello, my journalers! I am making another long list of bullet journal ideas. If you’d like to see my first list, click [here]. I had 30 ideas on that list, so be sure to check that one out! 

1. Books To Read

There are so many cute ways to create this section. 

2. All About Me Pages

These are some of my favorite pages to make. They can be simple and to the point, or colorful and complex. You do you and show off that you! Here’s a [link] to the post I made about my pages. 

3. Future Log

Having a yearly spread of what you are planning, need to plan, or just simply feel organized will help you feel less stressed about the coming year. I’ve seen a few ways how to set up a future log, but I chose the one that works best for my life. Mine has gotten a bit messy and only has the rest of 2016.

4. Movies to Watch

There are so many good movies coming out soon, and so many movies I just haven’t gotten around to see. If you’re like me and love coloring in blocks to show progress, then I suggest to set up the page sort of like mine. (But you can also do it any number of ways as well.) Here’s a [link] to my post about creating a movie/tv tracker)

5. Skills to Learn

I imagine a simple checklist can work. If you like to be more detailed oriented, you can make it more like a progress log. 

6. Important Phone Numbers/Addresses

Much like an address book, you can make pages in your bullet journal for the same function. Most people put numbers and addresses into their phones, but sometimes it’s just nice to have them written down someplace else. 

7. Year In Pixels 

If you’d like to see an explanation of this page idea, click this [link]. 

8. Fonts, Banners, and Frame Ideas

I think it’s convenient to have a few pages that act as a cheat sheet for your designing needs. 

9. Snail Mail Log

This is something that I am totally going to do soon, and possibly even include you all in on it. I want to start a mailing list for sending letters to more people. I love getting mail from family and friends, but it doesn’t happen often enough! 

10. Savings Tracker

This is such a lovely idea to keep in your journal. Be sure to stay on top of your finances! I like to keep an extra page for things I need to pay off or people to pay back.

11. Favorite Lists

This could also go in your “All About Me” section, but I decided it should be separate for me. You can list things like your favorite restaurants, meals, songs, classes, sounds, tastes, places, shoes, animals, colors, instruments, plays, games, etc. Get to know yourself better. 

12. TV Series Tracker

This is for those people who want to feel like they just want physical proof of how many times they’ve watched that series on Netflix. Here’s a [link] to my post about making your own. 

13. Monthly Challenges

These are so much fun to make for you all. If you want to add a challenge to your journal, click [here] for my master list of challenges. 

14. Music Playlists

You can make playlists on your phone with various apps, but there’s something sweet about writing out your favorite songs. You can create a workout, relaxing, studying, writing, etc. playlists.

15. Timeline of Your Life

Use two pages for this one because it will be filled by the time you are done. You can even use this for what you want to do in the future. 

16. Inspiration Page

Quotes, songs, people, pictures, charts, graphs, jokes, scripture, events, love, etc. WRITE THEM DOWN, BE INSPIRED, AND GO DO. 

17. Self Care List/Ideas

Sometimes we don’t know how to make ourselves feel better. Write a list of things you could try to do to help yourself become a healthier you. Examples: take a warm bath, go for a walk, drink a glass of water, watch a sad movie, etc. 

18. Monthly/Yearly Memories

It’s nice to have a page with all the memories you had that month/year. I tend to put a little doodle with each event/milestone in my life just to make it more memorable. (This was from my first journal. Please don’t judge.)

19. Sleep Tracker

I personally don’t use a sleep tracker because my sleeping habits are the worst and logging them might be upsetting to me. However, you can track the time you go to bed and what time you get up in the morning on a chart that is easy to read and compare with other nights. 

20. Me Time Log

Sometimes we all need a little time to ourselves. You can use this with the “Self Care List/Ideas” pages to log specific activities you do with yourself. You can keep track of the activity, when you do to, and how long your me time was. 

21. Tiny Adventures

Not exactly real adventures, but adventurous enough to get you out of your comfort zone. To see the original post about these adventures, click [here].

22. Word Tracker

For those authors and poets, keeping a goal sheet or tracker of your words helps a ton!

Hi!! I was wondering if you had any advice for a newbie studyblr / bullet journalist ?

Hello there, lovely anon!! ♥ I actually joined the studyblr community pretty recently (just this month!) so I hope I can answer your question well /// !! Since I’m pretty new, there’s still quite a bit I have yet to learn myself! 

➸ advice for a new studyblr

Don’t be afraid to just start. 

  • Honestly! There’s no need to feel insecure about your posts, spreads, handwriting, picture quality, stationary - everyone in the studyblr community is so sweet and positive and helpful I begin to feel spoiled. I hope you do to!
  • Don’t feel self conscious about anything. You’re beautiful, wonderful, and perfect just the way you are. There is no better you than you!
  • Stop comparing your posts and blog to other people’s. There’s a lot for you to learn, and it won’t all come immediately. Notes, followers - it takes time. 

Reach out to other studyblrs!! 

  • Say hi, send asks, make friends! Make comments on other’s posts, send compliments or help where you can. Just being active in the community can help you get attention but also give you a wonderful time. A studyblr is to help you grow, and this is a great way to keep you motivated in doing so.
  • Along the same line, try to find ways to interact with your followers!

Tags, Tags, Tags! 

  • A lot of studyblrs will track a tag and will often reblog your content if you tag your original posts with it! You can find out what tag to put by checking out a studyblr’s page (for example, I track #studyfeather). You can make a list for yourself if that helps! (: But try not to be too overwhelming or overuse it. Maybe switch up which tracked tags you use from post to post. 
  • Make a tag for you to track! It would make sense that if you’re using tracked tags to make one for yourself to spread the love. 
  • Have a tag that is specific to your original content (mine is #featherpost)!!! It will make it nice and easy for those who come across your blog to find what you’re posting about. Having original content helps others have more interest in your blog!
  • A lot of what you are reblogging can serve as a resource for yourself. I like to reblog posts that inspire me, or have spreads I might try, masterposts, etc. If its important for you to find what you’re reblogging for later, make a tag system for yourself. For example, heres @ / studypetals’ tags page or @ / studyquill’s navigation page if you need any ideas. This is a great idea if other people begin using your blog as a resource as well. 

Take advantage of all the information you see. 

  • There are so many posts that address procrastination, time management, stress, note taking, school - anything at all - that is made available to you. It’s one thing to see the information, but it’s another to make use of it. (And don’t be afraid to share your knowledge either!) You can even make posts about trying out different advice if that helps motivate you to try something out.

Make an introductory post!

  • Help others get to know you better by putting together an introductory post! It’s never too late to make one, so don’t worry about making one if your blog has been up for a bit.
  • From what I’ve discovered, introductory posts tend to have the following information (not every one has ALL of this, it’s up to you what you’d like to add): name, age, school year, why you started a studyblr, your classes, some of your favorite studyblrs, other blogs you have (and other sites you’re on), any anything else you’d like to say/add. 
  • If you use tracked tags or tag studyblrs you love, it can help get your blog noticed! (:

Post original content!

  • I touched on this earlier, but this is so important. One of the best ways for your studyblr to succeed is posting your own work and sharing it to the community. You never know how many people will love it, be inspired by it, follow you from it, or contact you because of it.
  • Be fairly consistent in posting original content. I try to post at least once a week even though I’m pretty busy. It helps motivate me to keep my bujo and studyblr going! You can try out the 100 days of productivity or some studyblrs put together monthly study challenges you can keep up with. As an example, here’s a May Study Challenge I might try out!
  • In posting original content, make sure you link information you’re referencing to help others that much more!

Queue your posts!!

  • A great way to keep your blog active is to queue your posts. I have my posts queued at 10 each day and try to keep at least 20 posts in my queue at all times, in case a couple of busy days keep me from adding more. Some people unfollow inactive blogs - and this can be a way to prevent it. 
  • The only thing I don’t queue are original posts and asks, but it’s up to you if you decide to use the queue system or not!

➸ advice for a new bullet journalist

Real quick!! I would advise taking a look at the bullet journal’s official website to help understand the basics of bullet journaling. 

  • It’s designed to be quick and customizable way for you to keep information and tasks organized. A great way to make use of this (that I’ve found) is to make a key for each of your logs. You can see my key here. You can also search tumblr for bujo keys to see what others have come up with. If you do want to make a key, make it so that it works for you!  It can be as simple or detailed as you want, with or without signifiers, etc. If you don’t like this system, that’s just fine!

Discover different journal options and where to find them.

  • There is no set journal to use, however there are popular choices among the studyblr community: Moleskine, Leuchtturm1917, and Muji journals - but it is NOT limited to these. Working with a regular notebook works just fine as well! 
  • It’s one thing to find and purchase something online - but I like being able to find what I’m looking for in person. It saves shipping + handling costs, and I get to it immediately. And, sometimes, they can be cheaper too! I found my moleskine journal I’ve been using at Barnes and Noble, and have also seen Leuchtturm1917 journals at my school’s book store. (The temptation is real every time I walk past OTL) 

Your bullet journal is for you, so let’s make it that way.

  • A big part of having a studyblr is to help yourself in becoming more productive in learning and improving a lifestyle (or this may just be how I see it). So! There is no set format for you to use a bullet journal. It’s up to you to figure out what works best for you.
  • You can take inspiration from other people’s post to help experiment with different spreads and layouts. (Be sure to credit/tag if you do! Just to be safe.) 
  • You can find out different things that you can add to your bujo! Habit trackers, daily/weekly/monthly/yearly spreads, lists of things to keep track of (books to read, tv shows and episodes to watch, shopping/wish lists, bucket list, etc), anything you’re interested in. Depending on your interests and areas you wan’t to use a bujo to help you with, this can vary. If you want, you can test out different ideas to see if you like it or not. It will take time to find what you like, so don’t stress about it in the beginning. You’re just starting, after all!
  • There is always something for you to do, it’s just a matter of finding out what that is. If you need any help of finding something to do, feel free to message me! (As long as you don’t mind me asking a bunch of questions haha.)

Don’t be afraid to use pencil first when making your spreads.

  • Me being me, trusted myself to use pen right off the bat. Boy, do I regret that XD It got to the point where I purchased an erasable pen but I’m finding nothing can beat pencil before pen. But before you erase the pencil - make sure the pen has dried. I can’t stress this enough. I’ve gotten impatient multiple times and go ahead to erase, and instantly wished I hadn’t. You can try to find pens that prevent this from happening, but waiting is the best alternative. Something you can do is make a spread at night, and wait to erase when you wake up in the morning. You can keep your bujo open to the page you worked on for it to dry better.

You don’t need any fancy or expensive stationary.

  • Seeing the pastel highlighters, wide variety of pens and miscellaneous tools it’s easy to think you need to have it all but … you don’t have to have any of it. Especially if you are low on funds, don’t worry about getting anything new. Just work with what you have! I have been using pens I’ve owned for years and have hardly touched to see what I can do with them and am pleasantly surprised! I have a bunch of supplies that I have gotten for school that haven’t been used that I plan on finally putting to use. 
  • Your basic school supplies with notebooks, highlighters, pens and pencils, post it notes, can take you as far as you wish!

Having a difficult time coming up with a spread? Here’s some ideas! 

  • Try out different hand written fonts. This can include headers/titles and subheaders/subtitles. Try headers, banners, and dividers too! Here’s some different ideas: x | x | x | x
  • Give your spread a theme. Disney, movie, music, history, art, cartoon shows, books - anything at all! This can help with finding art to fill in blank spaces to give your spread some more interest. Here’s a post with a bunch of ideas you could use.
  • Colors! Try out different color combinations! Being an art student, I’m overly conscious of colors. They can help set a mood, evoke certain emotion, some colors work best with others (be smart when using complimentary colors), etc. Here’s a site that covers basic color theory. But … this is me being nerdy. This can take quite a bit of thought - but you honestly don’t have to (: !! It’s best if you stick to one or two colors within a page not to overwhelm what others are seeing, especially if you’re wanting to keep things minimal. If you want me to go deeper into this, and talk more about contrast and whatnot … I can make a separate post as not to clutter this one ♥
  • Make goals for yourself! This can be included in a habit tracker, but doesn’t need to be. They can be as small as going on a 20 minute walk each day during this week, being sure to stay hydrated, doing something with a family member or friend, completing or starting a big project or assignment, etc. 
  • Find some quotes and add them! Here’s some quote masterposts I’ve come across: x | x | x | x

When taking pictures, be conscious of lighting.

  • The best kind of lighting is natural lighting. Taking pictures outside (or inside) during the day will help your image quality! I know before I said picture quality doesn’t matter much, but this can be a simple and easy way to help improve your posts. 
  • If natural lighting isn’t helping you the way you want, you can take a look at different apps with photo editing capabilities or filters. I have a horrible app finding ability, and just use Photoshop (you can get PS CS2 for free here) or Clip Studio Paint to edit my photos. My favorite tool to use is the tone curve. However you can see this post to look at other options, like apps (it also links to other posts you can look at)!

Have a good time!

  • Honestly, I feel this is what it boils down to. As long as you are enjoying what you’re doing and continue to have a passion for studyblr related content, you’ll succeed. Don’t stress about it and take one post at a time.

I’ll start putting together a post of how I started my studyblr in case that may help as well! Thank you for asking, anon! Hopefully this helps, and that I was able to cover everything! T o T Sorry I kinda went on a bit of a tangent in some areas.

The Soccer Player - Pt. 7

quick note: i never thought this would get this far but here we are thanks for reading :) also there should only be one or two more parts because  i know how i want this to end part one part two part three part four part five part six 

Walking out of the lecture hall, you found Calum leaning up against the wall scrolling through his phone. When the students started to pour out of the room he looked up, eyes locking onto you. He sent you a smile as you began walking towards him. “Are you waiting for me?” You asked, a slight smile playing on your lips at the idea. 

“I am.” He confirmed, standing up straight so he was taller than you again. “Got a problem with that, Y/L/N?” You shook your head, trying to hide the growing smile. 

“Not at all, Hood.” He held his hand out for you to take, which you did. “My class ended a few minutes ago and I wouldn’t mind the company back to the dorm.” He said, pulling you with him to begin walking to the doors. 

“Sounds good to me, but don’t you have practice in like 30 minutes?” You asked, checking the time on your phone to see it was 1:33. As soon as you fell into step with him, he dropped your hand, raking his fingers through his hair. 

“Yeah, but it won’t take us that long to walk there.” 

“I guess you’re right.” 

“Are you coming today?” He asked as he held the door open for you. You stepped outside, feeling the heat of the day. 

“Yeah, if Charlie does.” You waited for him to fall back next to you. 

“What about me?” He laughed, only joking. 

“What about you?” You said, earning a grin from him. 


The day was packed full of studying and more homework, and you stopped to meet Charlie after practice. You walked back together, after saying hi to Calum and Luke, and now you were back in your room again. Charlie was showering and you were scrolling through Instagram when you got a text from Calum. 

Let’s go for coffee, on me? 

To which you replied, Right now? 

Yeah, let me know when you’re ready and I’ll be at your door 

You told him you were ready now, as you hadn’t changed from earlier. A few moments later he was knocking at your door. You wrote on Charlie’s whiteboard that you went for coffee with Calum and took your keys and met him in the hallway. 

“Hi, princess.” He greeted, pulling you in for a kiss. You eagerly kissed back, feeling him smile against your lips. He pulled away and brushed a strand of your hair behind your ear. The moment didn’t last long as someone was left their room and you two went out the entrance to the hall, wanting to get to the elevator before they did. 


You sat down after ordering, Calum sitting opposite of you, putting his wallet back in his back pocket. “So, tell me about you.” You laughed, not expecting him to say that. 

“What do you want to know?” You said, leaning on your elbow on the table top.

“The usual, your family, your favorite color. The not usual. Who is Y/n?” He leaned back comfortably against the booth, crossing his legs under the table.

“My favorite color is silver.” You offered.

“You skipped the family part, I think.” He joked, earning a laugh from you.

“Did I?”

“Ah, so we’ve hit a soft spot.” He deadpanned, leaning forward and clasping his hands together on the table. “Interesting, do tell me more.” He waited for your response, a grin on his face as he saw you slightly smile.

“You first.” He sighed and you heard the defeat in it.

“I have a sister, Mali Koa.” He explained. “This is for her.” He showed you the tattoo he’d gotten for her. You read the pretty font, looking at the bird and finally putting a meaning to the picture. “These are for my parents.” He held his hands out, showing you the initials on either hand.

“You must love your family.” You concluded as he folded his hands together again.

“And you don’t?” He asked, genuinely curious now.

“I do, just sometimes I don’t like them.” You looked up at the bar as an employee pushed your drink onto the counter and called out your order. You got up and went to retrieve it, grabbing a straw too. As you sat down again he urged you to pick up where you left off and you reluctantly did. “I’m close with my sister, in fact I have a tattoo with her.” His eyebrows raised.

“I didn’t notice a tattoo anywhere on you.” He said in thought, obviously replaying the scene you took place in earlier in the week. You smacked his hand, earning an ow and a smirk from him. “What, princess? I’m just trying to remember what I-ow!” You smacked his hand again and he laughed, pulling back from the table.

“Maybe you didn’t look hard enough.” You said. At that time the barista called out his order and you stood up to go get it. “Please, let me.” You said with a grin of your own, you turned and knew he was looking for it somewhere. You grabbed his drink and a straw and returned and he was still stumped. You slid his drink towards him.

“Where the hell is it?” He asked, giving up on his search. You laughed, turning your head to the side and pulling back your hair so he could see the small heart with the letter F enclosed in it behind your ear. “Ohhh. Well of course I wouldn’t have found that.” He stuck his straw in his drink and took a sip. “So is her name Fiona or something?”

“Francine. She has one just like it with the first letter of my name.” He nodded.
“So what’s the story with the rest of your family then?” You took a sip from your coffee, deciding a way to say it.

“My mom and dad are divorced, so Francine and I went back and forth a lot. We didn’t like it and so the relationships with our parents were often strained, but they’ve gotten better over the years. Now my mom is remarried and has a son named Cameron, he’s only 8 but he’s the smartest kid I’ve ever met. He says he wants to be a doctor.” You stopped when you realized how much you’d just let spill out, and he probably didn’t want to know that.

“Why’d you stop?” He asked, leaning on the palm of his hand and gazing dreamily at you. The look he was giving you was making you smile uncontrollably.

“It’s boring, isn’t it?”

“Nothing’s ever boring if I’m doing it with you. Besides, I want to know more about you.” He gave you an award-winning smile that genuinely showed his happiness in the moment and you swore in that moment you loved that and everything else about him. It’d only been a couple weeks, nearing a month, since you two started whatever this was, but it was turning into something deeper by the minute.


request for part 8!

Could I possibly ask for a McCree imagine where he's kinda mad his s/o has been avoiding him so he goes to find them and they're too sad to move/answer the phone so he just holds them and kisses them gently for a while You font have to and regardless, you're wonderful <33333

McCree huffed as he put the pin for your door, knowing it perfectly. He had a few words for you, feeling a little ignored as you avoided him and refused to pick up the phone. He finally decided to talk to you in person and demand an explanation.

His eyes quickly adjusted to the dark, noticing a lump under the sheets. He slowly walked towards it, his spurs jingling. It shuffled slightly and your head pushed out slightly, eyes puffy and red from crying. His heart ached and he sat down on the bed, hand reaching to touch your hip.

“Puddin’?” he asked and you gave a noncommittal noise, refusing to look at him, “Oh, puddin’.”

He gently pulled you into his lap, you curling into his chest with you hands resting on the top of his shirt. He pressed a kiss to your forehead and a few tears slipped out. He gently rocked you back and forth, murmuring things into your ear and pressing kisses against your face. Refusing to let go until you stopped crying.

Let’s talk about being organized and how to create an efficient system for your chemistry notes!

I will be the first one to admit that I’m not always organized or put together. Though in retrospect, I should’ve been because it saves you 87684 hours when you sit down to study for an exam. On that note, let’s get started!

Binder/Folder/Notebook Organization

  • Color code the subjects to match folders and notebooks. What I mean by this is to have a purple folder to match your purple notebook for chemistry. This system really helped me organize my subjects by color and quickly access them when I have to do homework or look over notes. (On top of that I like to use the same color when writing in my planner for due dates!)
  • Divide your binder into sections. Try to be mindful of over using colors on this part. It can start to get messy if you use the color system for your subjects and then another color system within that subject. Let me give you an example for chemistry:
    • General Notes - this includes basic stuff like vocabulary and theories. 
    • Nomenclature - keep it simple and just continuously update it. 
    • Reactions - put headers on the paper with what category these reactions fall into (Synthesis, Carboxylic reactions, Amine reactions, etc.)
    • Instruments - this relates more to an analytical chemistry class or an organic class, but don’t forget to include some pretty illustrations and sample spectrums. 
    • Handouts - organize them by chapter and put answer keys behind each one if given.
    • Quizzes/Tests
  • Create a binder cover. These are fun to make because you can either draw it or print out an already made cover. I usually find a pretty font and colorful background.
  • Buy a separate binder to store old notes. So this is good for people like me that hoard their notes… and only use notebooks during the semester. When I finish a semester I usually have assigned binders to store my notes. For example, I have a 3-inch binder for ONLY general chemistry notes/tests/handouts. Then I have a binder for ONLY organic chemistry notes/tests/handouts. This system has made it extremely easy to store my notes under my bed and then pull them out when I tutor students!

Chemistry Note Organization
(This can easily work for any other subject, but I’m going to stick to only chemistry-related for this post!)

  • Embrace the color system. Like I said before, don’t try to overdo it but adding colors in chemistry notes make it easier to follow. My prime example for this is organic chemistry:
    • Write non-carbon atoms in blue, purple, or green. Maybe do halogens as blue, oxygen/sulfur as purple and nitrogen as green. Do whatever works for you!
    • In a different color pen (black if you write in pencil), write the solvents used to perform the reaction. I don’t know how many times I forgot to look out for solvents because I read right over them…
    • In arrow-pushing mechanisms, I really liked to draw the arrows in red. This allows you to see how the reaction scheme works and what atoms get eliminated, substituted, or added.
    • Label compounds/ions if they’re either an electrophile or nucleophile. Another thing I commonly read over because it blended in too well with my notes. The first-semester organic chemistry class is really heavy on knowing these terms and being able to identify them. 
  • Highlight key terms. Pretty obvious but I know some people who have notes that are nothing but in pencil. I honestly don’t know how they can read their notes and study them…
  • Date and put headers. Another pretty obvious thing but sometimes it’s hard to keep track of what you need to focus on for a test. I usually go off dates and start with the first lecture after a test!
  • Get creative and draw illustrations. It spices up the notes and sometimes it’s better to study with a picture. This works well with theories like the Bohr model! Maybe even draw your own little IR spectrums or NMR peaks. I did that when reading my secondary organic chemistry book. Oh, and why not put some color in those illustrations as well, haha.
  • Annotate equations by circling variables you don’t know. I’m currently doing this for my analytical notes and it makes understanding the equations so much better! I can go back and see why or what a certain variable is being used.
  • Use margins to annotate. When going back at study notes, it can get crammed if you annotate them all over the pages. So try to create a column only for these side notes.

These are all the things I can think of when it comes to organization. If you have anything else to add, please feel free! Hope you enjoy. :-)


to me from an admin standpoint i just can’t understand the appeal of a small container theme for a roleplay main, really. there’s so much information to put in just one simple roleplay and i just feel like…you need space for all that because putting a lot of information in a small space just 

a) doesn’t seem conducive and b) overwhelming in additional to those funky color schemes and backgrounds and this trend of the cursive font and small text and intense backgrounds that already make them hard to see

i mean fansite themes by now are super varied so there’s always one you can find that can work and a lot of people have enough skill that they can be edited but the features they have are really helpful in terms of like…a calendar regarding events and activity checks or any updates

i mean the functionality of a theme to me seems a bit more important than overall aesthetics that can be changed over time but this huge jump the rpc made from those themes to smaller ones is weird 

it’s even funnier and sadder that generally the only roleplays that have bigger themes are ones with full applications which really just says to me that appless roleplays usually have tiny themes because there isn’t a lot of information on it but….just some thoughts..

character posters tutorial

Hii people! It’s me Ash. I’ve been getting questions about the character posters lately, and I remember I may have promised to write a tutorial about it once. So…. on this very early Monday morning, I think I want to give it a try. ‘Try’ being the keyword ‘cause I’m going to be honest that I’m rubbish on explaining things. Feel free to hit me up if you’re confused. Nonetheless, I hope this could help you in some way! 🌹🌹🌹 


  • Pictures for the posters
  • Adobe Photoshop (I use CS5)
  • Basic knowledge of PS maybe
  • Patience

Check the end of the post to see the result.

Hey! I was wondering if you have any tips on how to create original content Xx

     hello lovely! jo’s here to help you out, don’t worry!
(well, maybe worry a little because I’m flying pretty much blind here, not much experience with original content or anything. but hey, you asked, i answered! also, i did this in one sitting, sorry, it’s 11pm and idk my brain’s kind of fried but i didn’t want to keep you waiting too long so here it is)

     sooo i’m assuming your probably looking for an answer like i answered about starting a studyblr and about all that stationery hype, right? well, i know you don’t want a ‘just post notes and pretty them up, you can do anything!’ kinda answer so i do hope i do your question justice…here we go! (/; v ;)/

     first, you gotta realize that hey, maybe i don’t post perfect photos with perfect lighting and everything but that’s okay. it’s okay to not have beautiful notes or photos or original content or whatever. yeah. okay. also, good original content is subjective, know that ok. now onto the actual post lol

  • Types of Original Content - so i realize that there are different types of original content you can post, so that’s how i’m gonna categorize this stuff, yeah?
    • Notes (+doodles and photos)
        • Here in general, you post notes of whatever you’ve been studying! Add doodles and little things to your notes. Post your~
      • Notes - these are usually outlined in black and accompanied by a certain color (or color scheme). Try to structure your notes when writing. Can also rewrite your notes and pretty-fy them as you rewrite. (posts about note taking here, here, and here)
        • also, people usually take photos that compliment their notes, that are either of the same sort of tone (red / yellow notes with a pic of fire or fall leaves, etc.)
      • Mindmaps - make a mindmap on a topic you’re learning about! you can find some of examples of mind maps here
      • Flashcards - make flashcards and you can use a colored pen / pencil for the term and use black or another shade of that color to make pretty flashcards. 
    • Resources
      • Post your resources! Anything that you think has helped you learn or memorize something faster, a resource that you often refer to, anything! Can be
        • a compliation of books or pdfs
        • quotes and advice and helpful things
        • your own advice and resources!
    • Masterposts
      • Make your own masterposts. Can be about anything and can cover anything! You can make a masterpost on-
        • Topics - math, language, calculus, ap subjects, etc.
        • Advice - like advice for starting a studyblr, for studying, for when to sleep, for different foods to eat, for a list of tv shows, of different apps to use, how not to procrastinate, etc.
        • Masterpost of a masterpost - make a masterpost of a bunch of other masterposts!
        • A list of anything, really.
    • Advice/Tips
      • Share your wisdom!
      • Make a list of tips, shortcuts, and advice you have and post them! You can have advice on how to get through a boring class, or tips on how to manage time wisely or beat procrastination!
    • Graphics
      • Most of the time, even notes and longer posts have graphics on them. You can make your own graphics! I make mine with Photoshop, but you can just search ‘online editor’ and make your own. 
      • Titles - make up titles for your posts (that aren’t notes). Set a solid colored background, usually pastel (maybe with a simple pattern like dotted or dashed lines on it) and put your title on it. like this post! (look at top for example, haha!) 
      • Graphics - make actual graphics. Make graphics of motivational quotes or of people or things, etc., and don’t forget to use legible, nice fonts and nice colors and stuff!
      • (if you want to know more about this, please send me an ask again / message me and i’ll elaborate more on how to make graphics because this’ll be a whole ‘nother topic to talk about)
  • Boost Your Original Content / Improve ‘Em
    • Photo Editing
      • Please pay attention to this because this is the important part! Use photo editors to make your photo look pleasing to the eye! It makes all the difference, trust me on this!!!
      • VSCO - a photo editing app that gives you basically everything you’ve ever wanted. use this, it’s not hard to navigate and gives makes your photos look professional and super nice. free and works with both android and apple. (android | iphone)
    • Taking PhotosYou’re going to want higher quality photos that look good and aesthetic and fit your post in general, right? Well, a few things
      • Camera/Focus - use your phone to take photos or whatever else you have that has a camera! just make sure that when you take the photo, it’s focused on your subject! 
      • Taking the Photo - when you’re taking the photo, focus the image. it’s best if you have good lighting (a window or a lamp, etc.) and that your background is clean (whatever clear surface. a white desk, wooden desk, etc.). 
      • Shadow - when you take your photo, try not to get shadows of your hand or the phone/camera into your picture! sometimes that means taking the picture at an awkward angle or moving backwards or putting your notes under a light source to eliminate shadows. always try not to have shadows in your photos! 
    • Aesthetic!
      • Color Scheme - try to make whatever things you have color coordinated! perhaps red with yellow and orange, or blue with purple or green and blue! 
        • coolors.co - a color scheme generator. super fun to use!
    • Tagging - to boost your posts and promo your own post, tag!
      • Main tags - Tag your posts with: study, studyblr, (subject specific)blr, subject, topic, studyspo, studyspiration, +more specific tags related to your post depending on what it is.
      • Tag people - Tag studyblrs / popular studyblrs you want to show your original content to because chances are they’ll reblog or like yours! also tag your mutuals bc just do it.
  • But honestly original content is basically trying to make things either realy super helpful or really super aesthetic, so it’s really up to you to make it awesome, but i know you can, so yeah!

How do people improve their handwriting and learn new fonts and stuff? Got any tips for learning stuff like that? Masterposts, helpful links? aaaa I want my handwriting to be pretty too

Hi there!! Improving your handwriting can be pretty tedious >< but you just need a lot of practice! We always like to practice lettering etc. by looking at fonts that we like or different posts. First, we would try to copy them, and then we’d learn to add our own little details onto them (:  

We found a masterpost by @aescademic that might be helpful too! I’ll put the link here! Hope this helps!!

how did u make the mildliner in yr icon!! >_<

Hi there! I used Photoshop to make the icon (: These are the Mildliners (sorry about the bad quality) :

If you take it apart, you’ll notice that they’re basically a bunch of rectangles:

So basically, just I basically just used a bunch of different rectangles and put them together (: Then I used the Helvetica font for ‘Mildliner’ and for the little paint blob, you can either paint it yourself with the paintbrush tool or use another shape to make it (: Hope this helps!

Not a Morning Person. (MGG)

Warnings: 0

*matthew isn’t a morning person, y’all get in a fight*

Your pov:

The cool autumn morning woke me up in a good mood. I loved the coolness of the weather in the morning. It gave me a feeling that I can’t even describe. I danced downstairs to the kitchen in one of Matthew’s sweaters. I started a pot of coffee and then started to make breakfast for the both of us. When the coffee had finished I poured some in a mug with some half and half. I continued working on the pancakes and bacon. I pulled out two plates, another mug for Matthew and two forks. I put the food on the plates and poured him some coffee setting the food down on a tray. ‘Breakfast in bed sounds good to me.’ I quietly made my way back up the stairs and pushed open the door. I sat the tray down on his night stand as I was about to wake him up. “Matt. Matthew, wake up.” I asked him shaking his shoulder a bit. He groaned out a no and turned over. “Come on baby, wake up I made us breakfast.” I told him rubbing his back and slowly shaking him a bit. “No.” he said forcefully. “Matthew come on. You need to get up. You have a scene early today.” I told him in a monotonous voice. He mumbled something into the pillow that was hard to understand. “What babe?” I asked him “I  said fuck off.” he roared and turned around knocking the tray of food on the floor. I looked down at the broken glass and teared up as I backed away from him. I saw his eyes turn from anger to worry. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to.” he said getting up walking towards me. I backed up and frowned at him. “I’ll just go, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to make you mad.” I said quietly walking out of the room. “Wait Y/N, I didn’t mean to spill that onto the floor and I’m sorry that I told you to fuck off.” I just nodded my head going into hiding. 

His pov:

Fuck me. Fuck my life. Fuck everything. Why did I have to be so rude to her. I didn’t mean to I’m just not a morning person. I went back to our room when she went into hiding and cleaned up the food and coffee. I frowned and got ready for work. I felt so bad making her feel upset. I pulled on some shorts and a t-shirt making my way to the front door to leave. “Y/N, um I’ll be back later. I’m really sorry.” I yelled throughout the house walking outside to my car. When I made it to set I heard Shemar come up behind me and pull my hair. “Fuck off will you.” I told him angrily. “Woah what’s your deal.” I sighed “Just fuck off, I’m not in the mood.” “Are you and your fine little lady having issues?” I pushed him “Fuck off Shemar. Don’t fucking say that about her.” “Geez, whatever.” he said walking away rolling his eyes. I sighed and got to set getting on my Spencer wear. My mind was so preoccupied with her that I could barely think about the lines I had to say. After I was done shooting the scenes I had, I pulled back on the clothes I had on before. I drove to the store and sat there for a few minutes just relaxing. I turned off the car and sighed getting out. I went to the flower section picking out some autumnal colors thinking Y/N would like them. I then went to the snack section getting her favorite snacks. I got up the cash register and waited for the woman to ring me up. “So what happened?” she asked me looking at the flowers and snacks. I looked at her confused, “What happened with your significant other?” she asked again, “Oh you mean my girlfriend. Um, I’m just not a morning person, lets just put it at that.” I said frowning a bit. “I understand honey. It can get to you sometimes.” I nodded as I gave her my card letting her swipe it. She bagged the snacks and gave me the flowers, “Good luck sweetie.” she told me as I walked out of the door. ‘I was going to need it.’ 


I soon got back and opened the font door. It was silent, the lights were dimmed low and Y/N was nowhere to be found. I sighed and sat the things I got for her on the counter grabbing a vase for the flowers. I unwrapped them from their plastic wrap and put them in the water. I unbagged the snacks and sat them also on the counter. I quietly walked up the stairs searching for Y/N. “Y/N? Where are you?” I yelled out. The faint sound of music echoed through my ears. ‘Ah, the bath.’ I walked into our bedroom going the the bathroom door. I quietly knocked on the door. “May I come in?” I asked through the white door. She quietly said a yes and I pushed the door open to see her in the dark in the bath. “Why are you in the dark?” I asked confused, “It just makes me feel better.” She said timidly. “Can I get in with you?” She coughed a bit. “I’d rather you didn’t, I’m about to get out anyway, its getting cold in here.” she said “Oh.” i frowned a bit and turning back towards the door. “Matthew?” she asked me in her fragile voice. I turned back to her and raised a brow, “Will you get me a towel?” she asked pointing to the closet. I nodded and smiled a bit happy that I was finally doing something for her. She stood up and I wrapped the soft towel around her delicate body. I brought a hand up to her hair tucking the stray piece behind her ear. She leaned into my touch and kissed the palm of my hand. I helped her step out of the tub bringing her into my chest resting my chin on top of her head. I rubbed her back and kissed her forehead. “I’m really sorry about this morning, I didn’t mean to dump our food in the floor. You were just trying to be nice.” she nodded into my chest and sighed. “I bought you some flowers, and your favorite snacks.” I told her as I felt her smile into my chest. “Can we watch some movies?” she asked looking up into my eyes with her beautiful ones. I smiled at her and nodded. “Can I borrow a shirt too?” “Of course, I love you in my shirts.” 

Better Man is sad. It isn’t a love song. It’s a song about losing the one person that you thought you’d never lose. It’s about being pushed away even though you’re holding on so tight. It’s about knowing when it’s time to walk away and not hold on any longer. 

Below, I’ve highlighted parts of the song that stick out to me. I’ve kinda just put context behind certain lines – for the people that either don’t understand them or may be reading them a different way than I am.

I don't know if you've addressed this, but doesn't it seem weird that sans would act like papyrus is a goof when gaster trusted his opinions on his experiments, if "WHAT DO YOU TWO THINK" refers to sans and papyrus? Surely sans would have noticed? Taking the whole idea that everything associated with gaster was scattered, including memories, wouldn't that mean that the whole thing with gaster looking for their input be erased? But there are still fragments..ah! Running out of letters to use!!!

I’m really, really sorry for the late reply. ;w;

I agree with your theory, but the problem here is that it’s not confirmed who were the two people Gaster was talking to. Personally I’m torn between the idea that the two people are Papyrus and Sans, or Asgore and Toriel (since Gaster was likely the Royal Scientist when both of them were still together/Toriel was still Queen). However, I’ve seen theories that the two people could be Sans and Alphys (which I don’t think so since Alphys only worked as a scientist much later, and one of the first projects she did was put Mettaton’s SOUL into his robot form), or two people we don’t know at all. There’s theories that there could be three people named W.D., since there are three different Windings font. They might have been siblings, and maybe Gaster was talking to the other two. Or it could just be two of his followers that we see as grey NPCs or that we don’t see at all.

I guess the thing he was talking about could have been erased? Or at least the memory of him creating that thing was erased? The thing is, we don’t even know what he was talking about. The most we know is that whatever it is absorbs light, like a black hole. “PHOTON READINGS NEGATIVE.” Photon readings are used to detect light reflecting off a surface. It’s impossible for photon readings to be negative unless the object absorbs light completely. We have no idea what he was observing.

Bleh, my knowledge on Physics suck. the wiki page on photons can explain more I guess. TwT I’m sorry I don’t know much about photons.

But yeah, we don’t know much about what he was talking about, and thus we don’t know if the memory of it was erased or not. My personal headcanon was that he was talking about something in the Core, or something seen in the machine in Sans’ secret lab. But this isn’t confirmed.

As for the first part of your ask, it really does seem that Sans doesn’t know how intelligent Papyrus actually is, and Papyrus might be lying to Sans in order to keep it hidden. (The whole thing about Papyrus pretending not to know about the lab in front of Sans, and also the fact that Papyrus knows Sans likes space-related things and science even though he says “SANS DOESN’T TELL ANYONE ANYTHING”.) 

(When the call includes Sans)

I don’t know why he does this, though. But if it’s true that Papyrus keeps secrets from even Sans, and acts naive in front of Sans, it’s not surprising that Sans would think Papyrus is just a naive goof, and feel the need to be overprotective over Papyrus.
