ah, all the time in the world we all have during summer! currently, i’m trying to learn Italian, which isn’t too hard because my first language was Spanish. if you all want a different post on how i got started tell me!
2. start a bullet journal-
with no school in your schedule, you have time to make your bullet journal as complicated or as simple as you’d like. i recently bought a journal and used it as a bujo. i love it!
3. practice your handwriting-
i know many people hate their own handwriting, but how are you going to like it if you don’t practice! i’ve changed my handwriting completely this summer. if you guys want a post about it let me know.
4. make a studyblr/blog-
that’s what i did! i’ve started my studyblr, instagram, and blog (all are linked on my tumblr page ;) )
5. practice calligraphy-
i’ve learned how to do calligraphy with Crayola markers. it’s very easy once you get the hang of it. There are plenty of tutorials online.
6. clean your room-
it’s a great time to clean your room! i know when it’s the school year i never have time to be cleaning my room. you can do a deep decluttering because you probabaly haven’t in a while…
7. DO YOUR SUMMER HOMEWORK-
please for the love of god, do! your! summer! homework! if! you! have! it! i finished my summer homework a couple weeks ago, but my friends still haven’t started. i’m saving their butts by helping them with it. i know plenty of people are going to start doing it two days before school starts. please don’t be one of those people.
i know a lot of people don’t like to read but maybe with your summer boredom you’ll get so bored that you’ll want to read? currently, i’m reading Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare.
9. try to prepare for the upcoming school year-
look up your classes and research about them. it’s good to start preparing for what you’re going to learn. it helps so when you go over those subjects in class, you can excel in it ;)
this is summer. your free time. relax and get ready for another stressful school year <3
monday 19th april 2017 // today i am finally finishing my english language notes & i have never felt so accomplished. i have been using my b6 muji notebook for my notes and loving it. it makes me so happy to see all my notes together and complete. also i recently bought these new pastel stabilo highlighters & i can’t stop using them. they make everything look so aesthetic
In honor of the new year, here is my simple tutorial for setting up and maintaining a language journal. I’ve made 3 so far using this method for spanish, french, and italian because it’s so simple. Disfruta y espero que logres sus metas de lengua este año! <3
I do not learn other languages so I can talk to more people or tell that I know the language. I learn so i can understand how other nations express themselves. Their feelings, their love, their ways of thinking. I don’t only get the chance to know words I didn’t know existed but I can discover feelings, noone understands in my native language. I feel like one can’t see the entire world unless they tried to learn a foreign language. The more you learn the clearer your vision gets.
