i need to make a universal tag

Steven Universe, 1976.
The only thing that keeps me from making a full video of this is the need of a properly funky arrangement of the theme song.

More retro-fitted shows filed under my “title art” tag.
(Also on Ko-fi and Instagram! Links in blog.)

hey……hey comcast and all yall running this shitty net neutrality thing….

Now, I know it’s hard, to stop being shitty for at least 1 minute, but hear me out

Did you KNOW? Some people, and this is gonna blow your mind, some people CAN’T LEAVE THEIR HOMES???

It could be for physical or mental reasons, it may not even be that at all

But here’s a list of things you will be taking away from people because you need more cash:

Online Schooling (This includes the kids you claim to be so worried about)

Online Work (This isn’t just for you artists doing commissions out there, there are many types of work you can do online.)

Applying for Applications online (which, if you DO get to go out, you know everyone will tell you to just apply online

Grocery Shopping (Yes! People use online services to go grocery shopping sometimes, sometimes they have to shop like that ALL THE TIME)

Contacting Loved Ones (1.Some of us out here have to make a choice on whether we get internet or phone, if you were home schooled like I was and poor, internet comes first over phone. So…yknow…internet would be a means of contacting loved ones without a phone. 2. Did you know if you do not have time on your phone, but you have wifi, you can contact your families still depending on the phone? If you have access to things like facebook, email, or some sort of social media on your phone, and wifi, you will be able to use those things depending on the phone.) 

Like, I’m not sure if you believe threatening people who really need access to the internet is going to make them pay more? But let me be the first to tell you, fear isnt going to change the amount of money in our pockets. If it did, I’d be rich.

The friendly tour guide hands you a campus map and you manage to find your way back to the front desk in Waterstone Hall. You hold your breath, ask for an application, and fill it out. You saunter back over to the desk, the nerves building in your chest, and hand the lady your paperwork.

She looks up from her work, takes it from you and smiles, “Congrats on applying to Waterstone University! I wish you the best of luck.”


Previous | Next | Beginning


I hope you enjoyed learning about this little campus that I had so much fun building! If you’re stumbling upon this post first, and you’d like to see more pictures of these builds and their interiors, go ahead and click that “beginning” link above this paragraph.

The Downloads

For starters, this is a completely CC-free build. 

However, I do own all the expansions and game packs and most of the stuff packs. I used objects from all the packs I own through the lots.

The map up top shows how to place the lots.

Make sure you have bb.moveobjects on when placing the builds.

The downloads will be on SFS, ad-free.

The Quad functions as a park. Waterstone Hall is set to generic, but you can make it residential. The Square can function as: a library, a bar, or a cafe. 12th Street Pub can function as: a restaurant or residential. All up to you and your gameplay/storytelling needs!

The Quad
Waterstone Hall
The Square
12th Street Pub + Row Homes

My TOU are do whatever you want with these lots! :)

However I would love it if you decided to tag me if you use these in any posts! But you don’t have to of course.

yyyyYYYYYY'ALLLLL I had a freaking intensive dream about Rad Likes Robots and I kinda wanna cry???? ;;;;w;;;;

anonymous asked:

Hiiii !! How can I create my own study plan ?? ^_^

Ok this is really hard to put into words because i feel like there’s no “correct” method, but I’ll try!

How To Make A Study Schedule

First, get yourself a monthly/weekly/whatever time frame you need calendar (you can find my favourites in my #printables tag, or you can just make a table in word/pages or your bullet journal). Write down when your deadline/exam is. Your job is now to fill in the remaining time. Here’s an example of one of my own study plans from my first semester at university (obv not all of it, but enough to give you a general idea): 

The difficult part: 

  • You’ll need to write down tasks for each day, but what these are or how long they take is completely up to your judgement. Important is, however, that you don’t just write down “study history” - instead, write specific chapter names, a certain number of problem sets, a certain number of vocabulary you want to study. That way, you can hold yourself accountable - you either got it done or you didn’t, whereas “study history” could be interpreted as 5 minutes as well as 5 hours. 
  • You also need to keep in mind that you’ll have to get everything done in time, so if you don’t start studying early enough, the daily tasks will become bigger and bigger - two days before the exam they’re probably unmanageable.
  • Also, remember that you’ll have more time on weekends or that one night you might already have prior engagements that keep you from studying. That’s okay, but plan around it.
  • Allow some days for rest/fun/emergency last minute studying. I always leave two days before the exam free (the ones labelled “revision” above) so I can flexibly decide what I want to look at again.

The even more difficult part: What if you have several exams you have to prepare for at once? 

  • the same system applies, but you have two possibilities: 
    • 1. work a little bit on every subject every day. pros: you have some variation in your day and that might motivate you more. cons: you might mix things up or don’t have the energy to start on a completely different thing after a study session.
    • 2. assign complete days to one subject. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for English, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays for Maths (just an example). pros: you can focus on one thing at a time and are less likely to mix things up. cons: it might get boring to work on one subject all day, especially if you don’t particularly like that subject. 
    • sometimes they’ll have to mix because you have certain deadlines and not enough time. 
  • Especially in similar subjects that are likely to cause mix-ups, reserve (if possible) one or two days before the respective exam to study/revise just that one subject. 

I hope this helped! Let me know if it works :)

Ship(s): Platonic Analogical


Oh, my God, he left me. What do I do? What do I do now? I can’t handle this on my own. I’m not a leader, I’m not a taskmaster. I don’t know what to do oh my god oh my god oh my god. Virgil was panicking, his mind racing as Thomas, Roman, and Patton began to dig through Thomas’ memories. Virgil could practically feel the weight of the future pressing down on his shoulders, threatening to crush him and suck all of the air out of his lungs. And Logan had just left him here. He closed his eyes and tried to control his breathing, tried to block out the bright light and the loud noise of Patton and Roman’s excited squealing. 

It’s too much it’s too much I can’t Logan please come back, Virgil thought, his train of thought all jumbled up and mushed together. He backed up against the wall, breathing shakily and fighting back tears as he slid down to the floor. Logan didn’t care about him. Virgil had been such an idiot to think that Logan actually cared that he was deteriorating. 

Come back come back come back please I can’t please. Virgil buried his head between his knees, tears leaking from his clenched eyelids and running down his face. The whole world was spinning and he felt like he was floating, felt like he wasn’t in his body anymore. He wanted to scream himself hoarse, to get the attention of the others and just get out of this mess because he couldn’t save himself, but he knew he couldn’t. 

Virgil faintly heard someone calling his name, but his head was spinning and he couldn't breathe and he could feel something wet running down his face. Someone grabbed his arm and he screamed, trying to pull away. 

DON’T TOUCH ME DON’T TOUCH ME DON’T TOUCH ME He felt the horrible sensation of his stomach twisting and churning and suddenly he wasn’t back up against the wall anymore. He was on his feet, leaning heavily against something soft, something warm. Virgil screamed again and pushed the thing away, scrambling backward breathing hard, trying to make sense of what was going on around him. 

“Virgil, look at me, it’s okay,” Logan said softly, getting down on his knees so he was at eye level with the panicking man. Virgil stared at Logan, eyes wide and panicked as he continued to cry, seeming bewildered. 

“Good Virgil, good. I’m here. I’m not going anywhere, I promise,” Logan said lowly, trying to smile as the other trait looked at him in pain and confusion. Logan had really screwed up this time, and he knew it. 

“W-Why did you g-go?” Virgil managed to choke out, bringing his knees up to his chest and shivering. “I tr-trusted to. You said you wouldn’t leave. You…you saw…and you just left.” Logan’s heart sunk as Virgil look of sorrow turned to one of anger and he gritted his teeth, his glare sending chills down Logan’s spine. 

“I was upset. It was foolish of me to leave you behind. I-I…I came back as soon as I realized, I assure you,” Logan said quietly, not wanting to startle Virgil by talking loudly. Virgil grimaced and Logan’s hands twitched, itching to scoop up the anxious man in his arms and hold him until he felt alright again. 

“No, you didn’t. You left me in there to…to….I don’t know what! Y-You don’t actually care! And why should you? You never did before!” Virgil’s voice was raised, cracking as if it hurt for him to speak. 

“Yes, I did. I’ve always cared, Virgil, I just didn’t realize how much you truly needed help, so I didn’t do anything. I’m sorry. But I’m here now, aren’t I?” Logan said, his own voice beginning to quiver. Virgil took in a shaky breath and looked Logan up and down, considering him. 

“Y-Yes…Yes, you’re here,” Virgil whispered, closing his eyes and chewing at his bottom lip. Logan smiled and fought back tears as he opened up his arms, welcoming the other to come towards him. Virgil cracked an eye open and let out a tiny sob as uptight, necktie wearing, feelings-hating, affection-avoiding Logan took him into his arms, a bit stiff at first, but eventually relaxing and holding Virgil in an embrace that could have rivaled Patton’s. Virgil hiccuped and buried his face in Logan’s chest, twisting his tie around his trembling fingers. 

“You’re here…a-and…you’re…staying?” Virgil said although it sounded more like a question. Logan swallowed the lump in his throat and nodded, hugging Virgil tighter and resting his head on top of his. 

“Yes, Virge. I’m staying.”

For some reason, the new season brings sad days
I chased after you as you ran by the dry river bed
You carried a nostalgic record and an overblown episode
Over your tired shoulders and your frown was blinding

As if saying the same words at the same time
We created a world with this overflowing magic

A world only for us, that no one can touch
So I won’t have to let go of your hand again
If by some great power we floated into the sky
♫♪ then we’d ride the winds of the universe

Even an abandoned cat surviving in a corner resembles you a little
I pick it up and snuggled it to my cheek
I looked up, it was pale and dirty
The barely-there crescent moon was watching me

I was waiting on the ridge at the end of the dream
You had a surprise look in your eyes
With that, the two of us are reborn here

A world only for us, that no one can touch
So I won’t have to let go of your hand again
If by some great power we floated into the sky
♫♪ then we’d ride the winds of the universe

(Since I first listen to this song, I really loved it and I looked up to the lyrics and their translation. I can’t help it but those make me think so much of Bluzu, so I needed to doodle something on it. I thought it may please other people to listen to it too so I’m sharing you this! Hope ya will enjoy as much as I did.)

How to fix Storm in the Room.

Have everything play out as it did up until the point where he’s yelling at Rose. That still happens, but he doesn’t end up apologizing. He makes Rose disappear and goes into the burning room to find Bismuth. He unbubbles her and have a brief exchanges that goes into a cliffhanger.

Bismuth: Wha-? Steven?

Steven: I want to know everything.

And then the episode ends. It would’ve been so amazing and this episode would’ve meant so much more than, “Steven talks to himself for awhile”.

And in the next episode we can have 11 minutes of exposition, I sure wouldn’t mind getting answers about everything.

❤ Here’s my art tag to get a feel for what I do   ❤

A friend and I are thinking about making a podcast where we answer questions from people’s original characters! Like an advice show, but we’re giving advice to imagined people. Example questions include things like “I’m having trouble relating to my friends due to some trauma in my past, what should I do?” and “I THINK MY BF IS A VAMPIRE?? HERE’S A LIST OF REASONS WHY. HELP.”

Realistic and OUT THERE Questions are all accepted! You could be as vague or specific as you’d like about your universe!

Would anyone be interested in participating? If we’re to do this we’ll need questions!

Please reply in the notes/tags if you would send in questions!

Prompt request: “Um…somebody broke that.”

Summary: The first time you meet Jungkook, he ruins a display you spent hours making. But he’s cute and adorably embarrassed, so you make the most out of the situation.

You stared at the messy, unorganized space around you, wishing your shift would just end faster. The quaint art supply shop you worked in was rarely busy, let alone on a Wednesday afternoon. You took the job because you needed to fund your university career, plus you supported small businesses.

But your boss was scatterbrained and failed to inventory the store properly, leaving most of the mess to you. Plus, he always insisted on having beautiful window displays, so for the majority of your shift today, you slaved over creating a hanging paper sculpture.

A wave of origami pieces were suspended midair using fishing wire. The colours were pastel to match the spring weather outside. The whole thing was beautiful and terribly decorated, so you shouldn’t have been surprised when the display was immediately destroyed.

Two boys around your age burst into the store, barely sparing you a glance from where you stood behind the cash register, as they chattered excitedly. You observed them openly, since you had nothing better to do. The one standing nearest to you was tall and well built, but had a babyish face–dramatically round eyes and pouty lips. His friend was even taller, and had surprisingly similar facial features.

“Dude, why are we even here? Can you even do art?” the taller one asked as he followed his friend through the tiny, messy aisles.

“The fuck, Yugyeom?” the other boy replied indignantly. “Haven’t you seen me draw before? I am the Art God.”

“Ok, buddy,” Yugyeom scoffed. “If you’re gonna buy something, hurry up. I have class in like, fifteen minutes.”

The two boys rounded the store, approaching the front once again. You held your breath as they neared the window display. The artist friend browsed through a marker display, testing a few on the sample pad below.

“Bro, these Copic markers cost more than me,” the boy sighed.

“There’s a pack here on sale,” his tall friend pointed out from a few feet away.

“No way!” he replied, spinning around excitedly.

Time seemed to pass in slow motion as you watched the disaster unfold.

The boy whipped around, searching for the discounted pack of markers a few feet away from him. As he turned, he stepped back to get a better view of the aisle, completely disregarding the delicate display inches away from where he stood. His backpack got caught on several of the strings and origami sculptures. And as he turned quickly, he ripped them away, sending some of the paper sculptures flying across the store.

The pressure from the boy’s spin also caused the mount every single origami sculpture to collapse. You stared, oddly detached, as you watched your labour tumble to the ground with a loud crash.

The two boys froze, and the store was silent, save for the radio playing softly in the background.

Eventually, you stepped away from the cash register and approached the two boys, who both were staring wide-eyed at the broken display.

“Jungkook, you idiot,” Yugyeom hissed, his eyes darting in between you and the broken window display. “You fucker.”

“So, what happened here?” you asked pleasantly, trying to dispel the burning rage inside you.

“Um…somebody broke that,” Jungkook replied in a tight voice, a fiery blush blooming over his cheeks as he turned to look at you.

“I can see that,” you smiled.

“I’m so, so sorry,” Jungkook blurted out, his eyes still comically wide. “Like I’m so sorry. I’ll pay–no I don’t have any money. I’ll help you fix it!”

You raised an eyebrow at this suggestion. “It took me five and a half hours to make that.”

“You made that!? Holy shit!” Jungkook explained, his expression worsening. “Fuck, I’m so sorry! I’ll do anything. I’m not–I don’t–fuck! Just tell me what I can do.”

“It’s okay, I guess,” you shrugged. “I still have a few hours left of my shift. I’ll just try to…repair what’s left.”

“I swear I can help!” Jungkook cried–although it sounded more like a wail. “I feel so bad about this!”

Normally, you wouldn’t really consider making a customer stay back and help clean up the mess they made. But this customer–Jungkook, apparently–seemed legitimately apologetic and inappropriately guilty. Plus, you just realized he was incredibly good looking and didn’t want to turn down the company.

“Well, if you insist,” you replied. “Let me grab the origami paper. Better prepare for an incredibly boring next two hours.”

“You two have fun,” Yugyeom said, slowly backing away from the mess. “I have class. Jungkook, don’t fuck up more than you already have.”

“Amen,” you muttered, as you walked down a few aisles to locate the cheapest origami paper pack you had.

“How many times can I say I’m sorry!” Jungkook cried, watching his friend who slipped out of the store as quickly as he could. Soon, the store was quiet again, the atmosphere tense. When you returned with your hands full, Jungkook was staring at the ground, his cheeks still flushed.

You tossed him a pack of origami paper, which he fumbled to catch. His eyes darted back up.

“Look,” he began, pausing to peer at your name tag. “Y/N. I’m really, really sorry. I feel really bad about destroying your art.”

“Honestly, I don’t really have any emotional attachment to a window display I made in two minutes’ notice,” you laughed. “Just help me make a few origami sculptures, and we’ll be even.”

So, for the rest of your shift, you and Jungkook hunched over the cash, deftly folding origami paper into pretty little shapes. Surprisingly, Jungkook was quite skilled and didn’t need any instructions. While you worked, you exchanged little tidbits of information about each other.

Turns out, you both attended the same university. Jungkook was a year under you–studying business–and roomed with a few friends nearby.

He sang along quietly to the radio while you worked (“You have a beautiful voice,” you had said to him. After spluttering and blushing terribly, he replied, “Thank you. I’m minoring in music, actually.”).

When the next employee came to take over, they eyed the impromptu workstation you had set up suspiciously.

“This kid destroyed the display, so he’s helping rebuild it,” you explained. “But I’m done here, and so is he. So I’ll leave the rest to you.”

And so you shed your smock and your name tag and promptly scurried out of the store with Jungkook on your heels.

“Is it okay to leave the display like that?” he asked, concern lacing his voice.

“It’s fine. Plus that guy was late to his shift last week, and I had to stay behind for an extra hour,” you said, feeling a little petty. “Thanks for your help, Jungkook. I’ll see you around, I guess.”

“Yeah, see you,” he said, sending you an adorable smile that revealed his bunny teeth. And so you parted ways.


You were working the following Wednesday. And like every other Wednesday afternoon, the store was empty. But a few hours before your shift ended, the door chimed as a customer walked in. Your head shot up–you definitely weren’t dozing off–and your eyes widened at the sight of Jungkook waltzing into the store.

“Hi,” he said with a small smile. Jungkook walked right up the cash and leaned against the edge of the counter. The muscles of his arms bulged as he did so, and you were fairly certain that it was on purpose. “I was wondering if you could help me with something.”

“Yeah, sure,” you replied, your curiosity piquing.

“I was looking for something, and I think you have it. I want a date,” Jungkook said, blushing faintly, “with you. You and me–a date. Yeah?”

“Yeah, I think I can do that,” you smiled. “No refunds or exchanges. This is final sale.”

“I’ll take it,” Jungkook laughed, his face illuminated with a wide smile.


These days, Jungkook helped you make the window displays for fun. Turned out, he actually did have a knack for art. Your boss was seriously considering hiring Jungkook, but you dissuaded him from doing it. After all, you’d rather have Jungkook all to yourself.

That’s it! Thanks for requesting!!!! And yes, be our regular anon, that’s so cute (and sorry this took us like 5 years to get to omg).

Thanks to all the people that love and respect Lance!

I made this post because i’ve seen a lot of comments about how “lance is the most loved in the fandom” and yeah, maybe he is the favorite. But those people don’t see two problems:

1. Fanon =/= Canon: I have to explain this? Many people love Lance, but that doesn’t mean that he has a good treatement in canon. I know that everyone is excited for S3, but as a latina that lived this experience many times, i’m only gonna be excited for Lance in S3 the moment that i see him having a good canon treatement. I can’t forget comments that i’ve seen about Lance coming from the people that made/are in Voltron (for example, lance is dumb, lance is machista, things that made people very uncomfortable -including myself- but most of the fandom ignores)

2. Quality over Quantity: I’m not gonna lie, the “lance stans” are a big part of the fandom. But that doesn’t mean that he’s being treated like a goddam human being by every “lance stan”. I’ve seen many “influential” people that “respect/care” about Lance doing many things that i mentioned above. That means that they’re a bad people? When they get called out and they just ignore/make excuses, yes, fuck them! But sometimes they don’t even see it. Ignorance floats in the Voltron fandom like fucking air. This post is not a “hate post” about them, is a call out for some people that maybe didn’t see how what they been doing is problematic. The fact that posts about lance being latino (just mentioning that he’s latino) are 98% made by latine fans is very…telling. But of course, the “latino” part only comes to the fandoms minds when they’re writing a fic and the character needs to say something sexy in spanish (and 99% doesn’t make any sense) I love being latina, but when i am in a fandom with a latinx character….i know that i’m gonna rant so much. I’m a white person, so i need to be extra careful with, for example, the fanart of a character of color that i reblog. Months ago (maybe a year?) i didn’t do that!!! I’m embarrased about it, but now that check the fanart that i see in every fandom and i’m horrified by what i see. The point is that so many people here need to check themselves out.

pd: gringx is not a slur (i learned to clarify that in every post that i make here. being a latina is tiring sometimes)

How to study/ revise for History!

This is an overview of 8 different methods of revision and studying for history assessments. (It can also be used for other humanities based subjects too.)
It is also a basic outline of revision/ study methods, however I shall make more posts on different assessment types and how I do them.

This is based on how I learn.  I(Feel free to change them to suit your needs!) If you have any questions, or I have missed a method, please feel free to message or ask me!


 1 – The Clock Method.

I can guarantee that next to nobody up until now has heard of this method before, mainly because I made this one up when I was 14 … It’s slightly unconventional and can only work for certain time periods, but this method works wonders for me (and I still use it at university too). I’m quite sad because no one uses this method, so please tell me if you like this or would (or do) use it!! :D

What you need: An analogue/ digital clock… Anything that tells the time. You may also want post-it notes to go around the clock, although I personally don’t do this.
When to use: As soon as you have learnt dates, the clock is your trigger.
Method:
1- Looking at the clock, tell the time.
2-If it reads, say, 19:15 try and recall all the events and dates for that year (that’s in your syllabus!). So, in 1915 the film ‘Birth of a Nation’ is released; and the British Women’s Institute is founded, etc. 3- Where possible, try and remember entire dates ie. In 1915 on the 1st January X happened…
4- If you have more than one event that you have to remember for that year try and recall all of them as quickly as possible when its ‘year’ comes up.
5- This method is more of a spot-check method. So, when you’re studying for other topics and go to tell the time, use it then. J
Advantages: Quick recall. If you keep this method up you’ll find that it’s easier to recall dates quicker, which can be good as the more precise you are in exams, the higher marks you tend to get. You also begin to do this automatically after a while, which I find very handy.
Disadvantages: Can only go up to years that end in ~~59.. However I tend to do a running commentary in my head of events after years ending in ~~59.

2 – Word Vomit
This method is more-or-less what is says on the tin.

What you need: Pen/ Pencils; Paper. (A timer if you want to test yourself)
When to use:
Before, during and after studying for a test/ exam/ assessment. Depending on how big your exam is, start 1 month – 1 week before exam(s) (or at the advice of your tutor).
Method:
1- With or without timing yourself write as much about the exam topic you are going to answer, and that you can remember. DO NOT LOOK AT YOUR NOTES WHEN DOING THIS!
2-If you have a big topic coming up ie. You’re looking at Russia from 1897-1945, look at things either chronologically so split things up into reasonable chunks, and write about it; or do it thematically. (Chunk things regarding how you’re meant to answer the exam/ assessment where possible.)
3-Try not to learn things thematically when you’re asked to respond to the question(s) chronologically and visa versa.
Advantages:
Ensures you can cover a lot of material. See your weak points before the exam as you have no notes in front of you when you do this, so you know where to put in extra effort.
Disadvantages:
Can be frustrating when you can’t remember something.

Word Vomit Part Two / Free Writing:
This method can also be used for assessments such as course work/ presentations too if you’re struggling to make a start. Just free write.
When to use: During and after the planning stages of writing a plan.
Method: Free write your ideas for your assessment and see where they take you, especially if the assessment is stubborn and you don’t know where to start. Write your ideas down and watch them take form into sentences.
Advantages: The assessment is finally getting written.
Disadvantages: Tends to need heavy editing.

3 – Time Lines

What you need: Paper (I tend to use A3); Pens (coloured); Pencils (coloured); Ruler; Post-its.
When to use:
Revision for test/ Order events for an assessment.
Method:
1- Draw a line across the middle of the paper. The end on the left-hand side is the earliest date of your assessment, the end on the right-hand side should have the latest date needed.
2- Chunk the line into time segments ie. days/ weeks/years/ decades/ centuries – whatever is the most suitable for your needs.
3- If you are a visual learner (like me!): Have 2+ coloured pens/ pencils and assign them a meaning.  For example: Dates relating to people = blue; events = red; legislation = green etc. Try not to have more than 10 colours.
4- Depending on the needs of your assessment, also have key quotes around the edge of the timeline. (This way you’re killing two birds with one stone)
5- If you want to, add pictures.  
Advantages:
You can get all the important dates/ time written down; other people can test you on it; looks pretty; able to put it on your wall/ door so you can see it.
Disadvantages:
Limited space.

4 – Posters

Okay, so with this one, I find that it tends to be up to the nature of the assessment on whether or not I use this method of revision or how I use it. I used them a lot when I did A-Level Law because it helped me learn the practical elements, whilst I use posters now for exams which include source analysis.

What you need: Pens/ pencils (coloured); paper (coloured or plain); ruler
When to use:
As revision for an assessment. These can either be an on-going project ie. If you’ve got 30 sources to learn for a source analysis so you do them as you learn about the sources; or before assessments.
Method:
1- Split subject matter into smaller quantities. I find this method best if done thematically, or if I have split my exam into the chunks in which I know it’s going to appear.
2- Find out all the important information for the test.
3- Fold or segment the piece of paper into reasonable parts for each section.
4- Assign meanings to your colours! Write the information for each section on the paper, use your notes.
5- Write out all the key terms and main points.
6- Try to be concise in your work, but I make one poster per theme / source.
6- Stick them on walls/ cupboards/ doors and test yourself.
Advantages:
Can be used to test yourself with; able to condense important information. If you write it for another person with limited knowledge on the topic, shows good ability in expressing information. They are great for when you have to apply work ie. For Law, or source analysis.
Disadvantages:
Upsetting when you run out of space (just stick another piece of paper next to it), or when you try to draw and can’t…

5- Brain Storming/ Mind Maps

Brain Storms/ Mind Maps are so useful. I use these for both revision and for assessments and find them super helpful for organising paragraphs for coursework.

I tend to do one mind map per exam topic, or one mind map for one essay, but this is up to you.
When I use mind maps for I only have one colour for all dates/ people/ events etc. whilst my friend gives the centre one colour, the first branch a second colour, the second branch another colour etc.

If you prefer lists over brain storming, write the list. It’s the same concept but a different layout.

What you need: Pens/ Pencils; Paper
When to use:
Start of writing an assessment; studying for an exam.
Method:
(You should already have the resources at this point, this is a way to organise your essay plan or research, unless you’re making it whilst doing research)
1- Write the essay question/ subject topic into the middle of the paper and draw a bubble/ box around it.
2- Decide how many branches you need from the mind map, and how much weight they all need. You can either write these subheadings down on a separate piece of paper and write them in when you come to the next point, or give each point an educated guess as to how much room you’ll need. 3- Don’t forget the introduction/ conclusion.
4- Go round filling each branch of the brainstorm – include people of note/ events/ important years/ important works etc.
5- You can also use this as a form of revision too, if you’re using it for essay plans for an exam. Write the question or subject topic in the middle, and then fill out the mind map without looking at your notes.
Advantages: Able to organise thoughts; can get in lots of information; add information;
Disadvantages:
If revising with other people, they may not understand it; can’t incorporate large chunks of text.

6 – Flash Cards

These are one of my favourite forms of revision, because they can fit anywhere and they’re handy for commuting to university.
Like mind maps I associate 1 colour per topic/ subject. I keep my colour codes across all revision pieces.

What you need: Flash cards (If you don’t want to buy them/ can’t afford them fold a piece of A4 into 4 and then cut on the folds); pens/ pencils; highlighters; rubber bands (or hair bobbles); treasury tags and a hole puncher (optional). Depending on how you learn best, have different coloured flash cards so you can make better associations.
When to use:
Between 1-2 months – 1 week before the exam (I say 2 months because I find flash cards exhausting and time consuming to make…)
Method:
1- Admire beauty of flash cards.
1- Go through your notes and find suitable headings for the flash cards, and mark which notes should go onto what card.
2- Write notes onto flash cards – use your colour for key points/ dates/ people etc.
3- Test yourself, or get others to test with you.
4- Whilst you’re making your flash cards label them. They will get dropped and you’ll forget what order they go in.. I tend to order mine in the top right corner. The number is what order number the card is, and the letter is the subject. So my first flash card on topic one is ordered 1A, so my 10th card on my 6th exam topic would be 10F.
5- Restart the numbering for each exam; or module. (This one is up to you).
6- If you have more than 26 modules/topics swap the ‘1’ and the ‘A’ round.

- How to use as revision
7- You can self-test or give it to someone to ask you about the material on the card. I find it easier to study with my course friends as they phrase questions about the material a lot better than people who aren’t on the course.

8- You can also use flash cards for essay plans – aim for one flash card for one paragraph.
Advantages:
Organised notes; portable; effective when used.
Disadvantages:
Can cost lots of money; notes may only make sense to you. (I tend to write in abbreviations, or put it information that wasn’t taught)

7- Mock Tests

I have changed how I use mock tests over the years. And this is good. Depending on your level depends on how you use them. I have found that questions at university are easier because they’re not trick questions and as long as we bridge the introduction right we can talk about whatever we want (within reason), so I only use mock exams as elaborate essay plans.

Mock exams are best used AFTER or DURING doing other forms of revision. Do not do it before hand because you won’t get very far, unless it’s a multi-choice question… Then I hate you (kidding) because there should be more of those on this side of education…

What you need: Pens/ Pencils; Paper; Mock papers (and answer booklet/ criteria). (Depending on what level, a nice teacher who will mark your mock papers and give constructive criticism)
When to use:
At university, I tend to use these a week before the exam (because that’s when I start to heavily focus on exams). When I did my GCSE’s and A-Level my teachers did mock exams throughout the year, but I focused on mock exams a month before the actual exam.
Method:
1- For your first early mock exams, give yourself extra time and have your notes (or at least an essay plan) For your extra time – if it’s 30 minutes, give yourself 40-45 to complete. If it’s a 45 minute question, give yourself 60 minutes. Then decrease the time as you do more essays.
2- Once you’re feeling confident, take away your notes/ essay plans/ aids (unless you’re allowed them in the exam), and do a couple of mocks.
3- Take 5-10 minutes planning. Even if you don’t get to the end of the exam, if the marker can see your essay plan they may be more lenient. It also saves you repeating yourself when you’re writing, which may detract points.

4- If you don’t want to write out essay after essay, write detailed essay plans on the question, using the same timing method. Start with your notes, so you have a ‘perfect’ essay; then take away your notes and write the essay plan.
Advantages: You know your weak points; you know what you’re facing when you enter the exam; you also have a rough idea about how much you can write in the time period given.
Disadvantages:
Time consuming;

8- With friends/ family/ your plant or pillow or pet
I think that this method is great when you know some / most of the topic material as you can see exactly where your strong and weak points are. 

What you need: Notes on your topic; a person to speak to; sweets
When to use:
1 week before the exam
Method:
1- Find someone to talk to.
2- Give them your revision/ study materials.
3- Get them to question you on all the material you’ve written.
4- If you get a question right, have a sweetie.
5- I’ve found that this method works best with people doing the same exam as you as you can discuss things in more depth.

6- With someone or something that can’t speak.
7- Have your material with you
8- Write a brief prompt – what are you going to discuss?
9- Explain and teach them/ it what’s on the exam.
10- Look at notes if you get stuck.
Advantages: Teaching other people your material is one of the best ways to learn and retain information.

Disadvantages: Can get very frustrating with people who just read the information when you don’t know an answer rather than prompting you.

Hey so I’m doing a cool dude character workshop (for kids) tomorrow, but I put together this neato character sheet, and I thought that you, the Internet, would enjoy it! 

The basics!

Name: Duh
Age: Approximate
Favorite Color: Good to know character-wise, also for use in their costume/dress
Abilities: List here the things that your character CAN DO. This can be anything from laser vision to being good at playing guitar, but they’re the fundamentals that make your character who they are. Minimum of three, but no maximum!
Flaws: These are the things that your character CANNOT DO - what they are struggling to overcome. More important than abilities, your characters flaws are what make them seem realistic and relatable. Example being Superman - he’s hard to relate to because his only flaw is Kryptonite! 
Mission: What does your character want to do? What do the other people in this universe KNOW that they’re doing?
Secret Mission: What does your character NEED to do, that other people don’t know about? Sometimes, even the character themselves don’t know this!
Extra Fun Stuff: Do they have a pet? What is their favorite burger topping? Extra flavor that makes the character fun.

Feel free to share, and have fun making characters! If you end up using it, please @ me so I can see your awesome work!

  • me: i need to find someone like peridot in my life
  • friend: lol why
  • me, internally: i need someone who understands my mental illness as much as peridot understands lapis'. i have literally never seen a character be so patient and helpful in someone's recovery as much as peridot is. she's always aware of anything that could trigger lapis, makes it a point to make sure lapis is okay before leaving, and immediately assures her that she will return - not wanting lapis to think she will abandon her. surely lapis still has her moments of weakness from time to time but she seems genuinely happy now, laughing and smiling because of camp pining hearts and meepmorp. i need a peridot in my life.
  • me, externally: lol she's smol and a nerd
