ART TIP: Keep a balance between digital and traditional art

because there are things traditional art will teach you that digital art won’t, and the same goes the other way

oh ok thanks for answering so fast :) even it's fake that's still nice for my namjin imagination lol can you tell me what was written after daddy please... i can't read it :( Oh by the way what do you think about namjin since the beginning of 2017?, do you also feel that they interact less compared to their early debut where they looked so close to me, always standing next to each other, rapmon always touching jin hand when talking etc... i'm a bit sad, do you also feel it or is it just me?

I think it says “bby sin” - which ??? I have no idea what that means.

Beginning of 2017? We’re only 3 months in so I dont think we can make a general statement and say that “ there werent much namjin moments this year”. But I feel like, with the whole Wings comeback last year, NamJin has just been everywhere and more in your face then it has ever before- 

Exhibit A - when Namjoon and Jin had no chill and were openly flirting at a fan-signing 

Exhibit B - when they gave us this christmas gift and defined the word married

Exhibit C - when they actually got married in Japan and did a whole photoshoot on it

Exhibit D - when they couldnt contain their joy at winning at the AAAs

(lol im Yoongi in the back admiring them)

Exhibit D  - when Jin had some words of encouragement (?? sure) for Namjoon and vkook were all of us

Exhibit E - when they ended all ships with this one v live

And lets not forget:

And when it comes to holding hands and standing next to each other, well…

So anon dont be sad! Namjin is here and to me, 2016 was THEIR YEAR and fingers crossed that 2017 will be too!

Thank you so much for looking forward to my new pieces and enjoying what I do, that legitimately means the world to me as a creator <3
Being able to evoke feelings in others whether it be warm n fuzzy or melancholy and reflective, is honestly all I aspire to do *fist clench* 

Your words keep me fired up to work hard and persevere through all the potholes that come w art blocks/feeling frustrated w my art (because honestly, no matter how long you’ve been drawing for or what your skill level is, art block and fear of stagnation can come atcha at any time)

I hope you have yourself a flippin great weekend Anon, cus you sure made mine a whole lot brighter ;u;

organic chemistry notes

i was really bad in organic chem in high school and gave up that entirely but the weightage in college is so great so i cant do that!! initially i took really long to understand the reactions but with practice i improved a lot that even my teacher noticed !! with this, im sure all of you struggling with this chunky topic will manage better too!!

pre-studying: 

⋆ have a positive mindset !! tell yourself organic chemistry isn’t hard !! you can do it with practice!

⋆ always remember to work in parts not cram before an exam, dedicating time for every functional group.

⋆ if u have a syllabus document like a level’s always make sure to check what you are required to know first !!

tip 1. do mindmaps first

its always useful to have a mindmap for each functional group, including the below:

reactions it undergoes / name ( colour coding for different reaction type ! )

reagent and conditions required ( also to compare across functional groups as they might undergo same reaction type but different conditions eg. both alkenes and carboxylic acids undergo reduction but-alkene: H2, Ni catalyst, heatR-COOH: LiAlH4, dry ether )

equations of reactions + mechanism ( note which are reversible, ⇌ and irreversible, → )

observations ( color changes are very important for distinguishing test eg. if oxidation occurs w acidified kmno4, purple mno4^2- ions will be decolourised to mn^2+ ions )

tip 2. practice, review, practice !

practicing helps you to check your understanding of the concepts and how well you know your reagents ! take extra notes if your explanations for why the reaction occur in a specific way etc

hopefully you’ve learnt some tips to do better in organic chemistry !! its a easy topic if you put enough time and effort !! if u take a levels too or want to to delve in deeper into certain functional groups just drop me an ask !

this is inspired by @determinationandcaffeine‘s post !!

heeeelp i'm being unproductive and lazy again. any tips?

I’VE GOT YOUR BACK SON.

APPS WHICH WILL HELP YOU GET YOUR SHIT DONE 

Time Out

for the times you’ve blinked and fuck where did the past 5 hours go. 

Hands down my favourite program. Basically, it sets a timer on your computer, forcing you to take breaks at regular intervals. It’ll force you to do so by blacking out your screen and disabling any running programs. You can set alerts and the automated voice can yell the fucking time at you. 

The most useful feature of this program is the use of mini-breaks, which dims your screen at regular intervals. What I find useful is that it helps me assess how effectively i’m using my time. If all I’ve done is dick around on tumblr since the last time my screen blacked out, then fuck, I need to move on to another task because clearly I am procrastinating (albeit like a boss). 

Lanes

If you’ve got to PLAN YOUR FREAKIN’ LIFE this is the one for you

If you use the Pomodoro technique, there’s a set timer on this chrome extension. There’s also handy to do lists and a weekly planner. Its basically an all in one planner. 

Alternative: Momentum.  

30/30

Micromanage your life. With alarms. Lots and lots of alarms 

You know your long ass to do list? This app will let you make a long ass to do list - but you can have alarms at the end of each task. You can set the time for each task, queue them up, and you’re good to go! 

Self Control

BLOCK ALL DISTRACTIONS.  

Basically, Self Control works as a website blocker which stops you from accessing certain sites for a set period of time. You can create a list of your most visited websites (e.g. youtube, tumblr, facebook…all the usual procrastination staples) and block the for up to 24 hours. Uninstalling the program will not work - you still have to wait for the allocated time to pass! 

Alternative:  StayFocusd

THINGS YOU CAN DO

  • 3-2-1 Method: If I’ve got a whole day (and night) of study I break it down into different sessions. My first study session will be for three hours (with 10 min breaks between each hour), then I’ll take a longer break for a meal or something. Then I’ll study for two hours. Break. Then one. Repeat. 
  • Lists: On my very very unproductive days, I list out all the things I need to do and break them down into small chunks. I try to complete as much as I can within the hour. After a small break, I start another hour study session. The goal? To complete more tasks than I did in the hour before. So even if I only get one thing done in the first hour, at the very least, by the end of the second hour, I’ll have completed two things. 
  • Do small things first: if you have a large list of items to do, do a succession of the less time consuming tasks first. It’s a real confidence booster to be able to cross off 3 things from your list within the first hour, and may give you the motivation to power through the rest of your day. And heck, even if the rest of the day ends in a netflix spiral, at least you’ve got those three things done! 
  • Find another way to study the same content: sometimes, lack of productivity may come down to an inability to engage with content (aka the shit you’re studying is boring). Mix things up - record your notes on a mic, draw mindmaps, colour code things! Keep yourself engaged - studying isnt all about wrote memorisation and copying notes. Same shit, different day? NOT TODAY.  
  • Do not disturb: Short of throwing your phone out of the window, put your phone on do not disturb mode. Heck, if you can bear it, put it in another room. 
  • Make sure you know wtf you need to get done: This may involve making a list etc. I find that where I don’t have set goals, im more likely to procrastinate (as the impending doom of the deadlines has not forced its way down my throat yet). 

In the wise words of Shia LaBeouf, JUST FUCKIN’ DO IT. 

All the best! 

The second one for the night! (I’m not even sure if this is the updated colour scheme for Xia) I really adore scribs and this had to be done, so I hope they are having a good day! @galactibun
