memo board

How I study in Uni: workspace, note making & what’s in my files.

 Assalamualaikum lovelies! 

Alhamdullilah midterm exams are over and I’m also happy with the results (but not too happy). The foundation year students are having a week break and my mum is coming from Malaysia in 2 days! (: A week of not having to think of what to cook, because mum is here to save me. 

Anyway, inshaAllah today I’ll share to all of you on how I study here. This post has been highly requested! I’ll try my best to not let any of you down!

Before that, I would share my personal thoughts about having an organized workspace.

Here’s mine! I put a lot of effort in it MashaAllah. Most of my things are from K-mart, The Warehouse and Typo because they have the best range of fashioneries (fashion stationeries!). I’m sure most of you know how obsessed I am with owning the best stationaries. Hehe. I purchased the two Anatomy posters from a bookstore just to inspire myself and to because I have to remind myself every day that this is the last term to study maths because next term if God wills, I’ll never see Maths again for the rest of my life lol. Also, another idea is to have a world map poster, especially if you love traveling. I got my fairy lights from Kmart but I also got some from Kaison in Malaysia which is pretty cheap. The light just brightens up the mood.  You don’t need to put unnecessary items on your workspace because you might be overwhelmed by it. Keep your pens and markers in your drawers. Also, a wire memo board or a cork board are the best ones to hang motivational quotes or important notes.

Okay, so let’s start with note making!

I usually have lectures in the mornings from 9 AM. I’m not sure with other foundation year students, but Otago FY students get workbooks for every subject we take. In the workbooks, there are compilations of lecture notes and also tutorial questions. 

I usually read through the lecture notes and highlight the main points of the lecture on the night before. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the lecture notes than showing up to the lecture with 0% idea of what the learning is about. I read a post from a studyblr about surviving university and it said that it is more important to note what the lecturer says than what is written on the slides (if you can view them online). Usually, lecturers will give out details on how to answer exams questions and the main points that you need to know for the lecture.

I use 3 different colours of highlighters. Purple for large topics, blue for small topics and pink for the explanation. For visual learners like me, it’s important to differentiate the notes (:

So, after lectures, we’ll have tutorial classes. If you’re not a University student yet, tutorial classes are small classes where students are able to interact with the lecturer. Usually, we’ll be doing tutorial questions and discuss. 

It’s so important to do exercises, regardless of how well you think you’ve mastered the lecture. I’ll always add extra notes in the lecture book after doing the tutorial questions. 

At home, I’ll make my own lecture notes as a summary of the lecture. I printed these pages online from a studyblog, but I don’t remember from who! :( But if any of you are interested with study templates, you can just google ‘studyblr printables’ and print them off from the internet :) I made lecture notes after doing tutorial questions so that I’m most sure of it. During exam week, I’ll only be reading these notes! But before that, please make sure you don’t miss out writing any important details from the lecture into the page.

Lastly, I’ll make notes that are more visual. I don’t make notes for all the lectures, just for those parts I know I need help to memorize. I’ll flip through this notebook every night to remember (:

Oh! One of the things SESERI has taught me is to have a file for every subject. Apparently, that habit has been stuck with me to University, which is good! 

I have 5 files for the 5 subjects I’m taking this term which are: Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Academic English & Mathematics for Science. 

In the files, I’ll keep in the exam questions, exam revision questions, and also the lecture notes I made. I also keep in printables like the grade tracker (this is so important so that you know where you need to work on to achieve the GPA you want!), topic understandings checklist and definition list. I glued on one of my favorite quotes too. I leave these files at home and use them to store my notes. Near exams, I’ll review them (: It’s so important for us to keep the study materials we get from classes because it just might be useful for the future. Organizing your file is so important so that things don’t get all messed up, especially when it’s near exam week. 

Remember that doing extra work for your studies is for your own good sake regardless whether people are doing it too or not. I’m sure everyone wants the best for themselves, therefore there is no harm in trying to work harder. In the end, it’s all about how much you’ve achieved to get closer to your goals. If something inspires you, go for it. If it motivates you to do better, go for it. You also need to learn to say ‘no’ to the negative things in life. If you feel like your circle of friends are bringing you down in your studies, it’s okay to isolate yourself sometimes just to get back on track. It’s better to feel left out that feeling regret the rest of your life for not trying your ultimate best. With determination, discipline, and positivity, inshaAllah we’ll get to the destination we want!

I hope I helped one or two of you with this post! Do share your thoughts about it with me personally or anonymously (through the ask box) because I want to improve myself too! Also, please tell me what you want to read in my next post because I’m kinda out of ideas.

Insha Allah, till next time when I write again. Assalamualaikum. 

“Study. Remind yourself: I’m doing this for me.”

Fabric Memo Board Tutorial

Hi Guys

So I’m currently busy with a Wig Commission but whilst I wait to get some more material for it, here’s a quick tutorial for you.
Find you’ve no room for anything? Tired of table space being taken up by paper or card? NO MORE! Not with a Fabric Memo Board 8D
Its super cheap and easy to make and here’s how:

You will need:
*Some Card board or a calk board. I used cardboard because its all over my house :P
*Some spare fleece or wadding
*Some nice material to cover
*Drawing Pins
*Staples and Stapler

Start by cutting a piece of cardboard about A3 in size.
Using this as a template, cut the fleece/wadding to the size of the board with a little extra for trim to wrap around the edges.
Once happy staple away around the edges.

Now do the same for your nice fabric.
I chose one with strawberries :3

Remember to keep your fabric tight and stretched so you get a nice smooth finish.

(Make sure you iron your fabric though - my iron’s broke DX)

Now take your chosen ribbon and start measuring from the left corner.
you can have as many lines as you wish but I’m simply going for 3 each way.

Now do the same the other way.
I ran out of green ribbon so I used a nice gold one for the other direction. Make sure you staple your ribbons to the back of the board as tight as you can.

This next bit you can either avoid or do it your own way.
I basically need the board to stand up on a table, so using some more cardboard I make a stand like what you see on the back of photo frames. It’s very crude but no one’s going to see it :P I tape this in place and voilà! its stands. magic |D

Now take your chosen drawing pins and pin one where the ribbons cross and you are done! You can use any kind of pin but I prefer drawing pins as I can then hang stuff from them, like keyrings 8D
This one I’ll be taking with me to London Expo to display my goods and is a great way of decreasing clutter off your tables :3
enjoy <3

Hold On To Let Go Chapter 3

Chapter three has finally been written so here, take it. Please remember that I obsessively check to see if my works have gotten any feedback, so please comment and/or reblog if you liked it! It means a lot to me! Seriously, even just a bunch of random letters or words would make my heart soar.

Big thanks to @puns-and-fics for inspiring this, and @jamilton-central for putting up with my infrequent update schedule. I don’t know what I’d do without you two.

Thomas walked up the street, from the bus stop to the school courtyard. Soft rays of sunlight bounced off his dark curls of hair, framing his obviously fake smile. At least, it seemed fake to Thomas. But that was because he knew. At least James couldn’t tell, the shorter man running up to him and grinning.

“Tommy!’ James exclaimed, elated at the sight of his friend. “You’re never gonna believe what happened earlier!”

“What is it, Jemmy?” Thomas asked, happy to leave behind his inner thoughts in exchange for one of James’s stories.

“Well, you know how in Mr.Franklin’s class we have that research and debate project coming up, the one where you have partners?” James inquired hurriedly, talking a mile a minute. “Well, you got paired up with Alexandwhore!” He exclaimed, laughing slightly at the title they’d made up for the scrawny nerd during Freshman year.

“Why is that a good thing, Jemmy?” Thomas muttered, trying to hide the look of pain on his face. He would have to work with Alexander, who was the boy he’d been harrassing for years, and simultaneously the boy he’d been falling in lo- the boy who was his platonic soulmate.

“Because,” James answered smugly. “It gives us the perfect opportunity for what I would like to consider the perfect prank!”

Thomas eyed James suspiciously. “Your pranks usually end with someone in the emergency room, Jemmy.”

“Well, it’s only Alexandwhore, so it won’t matter where he ends up. Do you remember last year when it was a fairly bad storm outside, and that loser could barely speak?”

Thomas remembered that day faintly. It had been last spring, near the end of winter. Alexander had been a shivering mess, asking to leave the class as soon as the first bolt of lightning struck miles away. “Yeah, so what?”

“Well, I did some research- it’s surprising what you can find on the internet- and I think I know why he was like that. Turns out that on Nevis, or wherever it is he’s from, there was a hurricane when he was a kid. So now he can’t stand storms or something. That’s where my plan comes in. RIght before you do your presentation, we play some storm noises, dim the lights, and make it seem like a horrible storm is happening. Then, once Alexandwhore is terrified, we force him to go do the presentation in front of everyone.”

“That’s a terrible plan.”

“You have to admit that it’d work. All you have to do is get him in the right place at the right time so that I can do my technical stuff.”

“And Burr? What does Aaron know of this?”

“He said something about a code of honor, and how he needed to remain impartial on the situation of Hamilton- basically, Aaron’s a buzzkill, but he won’t tell anyone if we go through with it. So…you in?” James asked, raising an eyebrow.

Thomas felt his heart sink at the idea of doing such a thing to his soulmate. Even if Thomas didn’t love the other teen, this would be a cruel thing to do to his ‘other half’. But this wasn’t his soulmate. Nobody knew except him. Not even Alexander. And Thomas knew that he wouldn’t think twice before doing such a thing to a bastard, orphan, whore’s son, undeserving, smartass-

“I’m in.”

Click, click, click, went the linoleum tile beneath Alexander’s feet. His arm was covered in dark green scribbles, and the scribbles were covering up his- he didn’t need to think about that. Not at all. His sleeves were down, and it was a particularly cold day, so wouldn’t have to worry about someone accidentally seeing the marks on his wrists. Not at all.

Locker doors slammed open and shut carelessly down the hall, the metallic clangs melding together with the dozens of conversations happening at once, a few words stringing together each time he passed a group of people. One moment it was ‘she smells wine and cheap’ and the next it was a simple ‘cooler than a vintage cassette’, as if people still used those.

He kept his head down, denying himself the ability to see exactly who was around him. It was more in an effort to remain inconspicuous than to block his eyesight, but Alexander was willing to use either excuse while trapped in his thoughts. The world was quiet, but a strange sense of quiet. The type of quiet one can only find in the midst of a crowd of teenagers and the air thick with gossip.

Eventually, he reached his first class of the day, U.S. History. It wasn’t his favorite, per say, but he was smarter than to call it his most hated subject. After all, in this class, the only member of his group of tormentors that was here was Jefferson, and he sat across the room. That was as good as it would get.

Rushing in through the open door, he scurried away from the pressing crowd of his peers and walked into the artificially-lit room. There was Mr.Franklin, smiling at him politely, and the classroom half-full of people who simply wanted to avoid the noise and pressure of the halls before the first class of the day, and, of course, the memo board. It was typically bare, save for the crumpled flyer for a musical that the school had put on years ago, but today was different. Today, a neon green piece of paper was tacked to the board.

Walking over to it, he furrowed his brow at the list of names before reading the title of the page. ‘Group assignments’, it said, in overly curvy font which Mr.Franklin had most likely chosen for no reason other than the fact that it seemed amusing at the time, as most his choices appeared to be.

Scanning the page, Alexander’s heart stopped beating for just a moment when he read the words next to his own name.

Typed neatly on the paper in a font that Alexander had never even seen before was the name Alexander Hamilton, with a line attaching it to another name he knew all too well.

Thomas Jefferson.

Do you have any cool ways or ideas to motivate yourself?

Close your eyes, and visualize yourself reaching your goals.
Try something new today.
Take a walk in a park, and let nature reset your mind.
Make a to-do list. You’ll feel encouraged as you cross off items.
Get more sleep. Sleep deprivation could be making you less motivated.
Drink coffee for a quick jolt.
Start exercising, and you’ll feel like yourself
Take a small step. You don’t have to immediately immerse yourself in the project and see it until completion right away. Just make baby steps, and take it one day at a time.
Wake yourself up from your slump with a cold shower.
Have a reward system, so you’ll have something to look forward to.
When doing a task you don’t want to do, play energizing music to help you get through it.
Get the hard stuff done first thing in the morning. Once you’re done with the most challenging projects, you’ll be able to tackle the others with ease.
Prepare early so you’re not in a rush. When you’re late all the time or feel rushed, this may stress you out and kill your motivation.
Push yourself. Realize that getting things done means giving yourself a little push sometimes.
Grow your willpower. Read The Willpower Instinct for how to do this.
Make motivating yourself into a habit. Read The Power of Habit to help you learn how to form habits.
Set a deadline for a task to spur you to get it done before the time is up.
Focus. Doing too many things at once can overwhelm you, so drop the multitasking and focus on one thing at a time.
Get a friend to join you to make whatever you’re doing more enjoyable.
Clean up your home or your workspace, and you’ll feel like you can get more done in a decluttered environment.
Let go of your fears, and you may feel brave enough to take on challenging tasks.
Eat right. Treating your body well will put you in a better place mentally.
Take a break to get some rest and recharge your mind.
Do something you enjoy when you first get up. Whether it be drinking hot chocolate while reading a chapter of a book you’re currently glued to or taking a hot shower, start your day off on a positive note.
Share your goals with others. Being public about your goals will give you a sense of accountability, which may make you more inclined to get going.
Fake it till you make it. Act like you’re motivated, and it’ll become a reality in time.
Focus on the positive instead of the negative, and you’ll feel more inclined to start new projects and take risks.
Bring light into your room. Open up your curtains. Let fresh air into your room by opening up windows if it’s not too cold and if it’s not polluted outside.
Find out what it’ll take to get there. When you set a goal for yourself, begin by doing some research, and you’ll be done with the first step.
Encourage others, and you’ll automatically start seeing encouragement from them in return. It’s a cycle of positivity!
Don’t compare yourself with others or you’ll get discouraged. Compete against yourself.
Have realistic expectations. Know yourself and how far you can go.
Stay excited. Experiment and keep coming up with new tweaks so you won’t get board.
If you fail, pick yourself up and keep going. Don’t let it derail you or cause you to lose confidence, which ends up affecting your motivation.
Keep track with a journal. If you track your progress, you’ll be able to see it, which will help motivate you to continue or try even harder.
Read biographies of the people you look up to for inspiration.
Listen to motivation stories from audiobooks, Ted Talks, documentaries, and more.
Place motivational quotes around your home and workspace. They can come in such forms as a sticky note on your memo board, a note taped to your mirror, or an inspiring quote on a coffee mug.
Volunteer. It’ll help ground you and make you realize that you’re fortunate, so you should take the opportunity to make the most out of your life.
Read The Last Lecture. It’s a book written by a professor who managed to squeeze the most out of his final days after a terminal cancer diagnosis.
Dress to impress yourself. You’ll feel like you can get more things done when you’re putting your best foot forward.
Write down a few things you’re grateful for. If you have a more positive mind-set, you’ll find yourself more motivated and looking forward to what’s in store for you.
Reflect on the times when you worked hard and succeeded at your task.
Remind yourself that it’s better to try and fail or succeed than living with regrets.
Give yourself a pep talk, and tell yourself that you are awesome.
Drop the projects that you might not be totally committed to and focus on the ones you’re really passionate about.
Tell yourself that nothing worthwhile is ever easy.
Know that only you have the power to create your dreams and generate motivation.
Write down where you see yourself in five years, and stick that note in a visible place.
Turn it into a challenge with a time limit. You can create your own or join an existing one. There are plenty of challenges that already exist out there, such as the NaNoWriMo, which challenges participants to complete a novel in a month.
Set your alarm clock to remind you when it’s time to start on your task.
Find something you truly enjoy, and do it. Pick up a hobby or start a collection, and it’ll make you excited about life.


When I worked at a banquet hall in a hotel, I had a manager (who we’ll call steve) who treated everyone like shit, calling us stupid, calling us out on things not even the managers above him cared about, and just generally being an a**hole.

One day he puts this pissy memo on the bulletin board about not eating left over food (none of the other managers cared about this, and it actually went in the garbage if nobody ate it), but instead of signing his name, he put “banquet management”. Well, as a joke I scratched that out, and wrote “-Steve”. A couple minutes later, he walks over to the bulletin board, sees this, and starts screaming “WHO WROTE THIS?!”, and then runs to his boss down the hall, and starts complaining, and the guy just doesn’t know what to say and shrugs.

Well, the entire staff saw this and thought it was hilarious, so we start writing “-Steve” on everything. Over the next few weeks Steve gets more and more pissed, and launches an “investigation” saying that he’s analyzing the handwriting (at this point he still thinks it’s just one person, despite the fact that the entire staff is in on this joke).

He never really figured it out, and I’m not sure how crazy it drove him, but he did get fired for drinking on the job.

·          1. Good NOTES. Make sure you’re not just rewriting everything from the book, you  rewrite notes based on what you understand! Jot down only the important points.  It’s also easy to recall info.

           2. RECORD the LECTURE.  Just for back up. this is optional but very helpful. { here’s a picture of my voice memos during my board review }

·         3. SEEK HELP. If you don’t really understand the lesson, never hesitate to ask the professor or your classmate.

·      4.  Be organized. Be sure you’re able to follow the things you should do for that day. remember that hard work, discipline and perseverance beat talino.  so do your thing on time. stop procrastinating!! (says who) Haha. Provide yourself a Flash drive to put all your files like thesis outputs and handouts, and don’t just let somebody borrow it from time to time.  { virus alert, in the end files corrupted } provide backup on your laptop.

{ picture; My 4th year college planner } 

·         5. When reviewing..

  • bring out your highlighters and other study tools like colored pens or even scratch paper
  • Don’t study in your bed.
  • Don’t drink coffee if you’re not used to it. Don’t drink cobra too. Don’t push yourself too much
  • Find your review routine { study at night or dawn } which is more effective.
  • Khan academy,  handwritten tutorials From youtube. { if you don’t really understand the lesson Go search!! this is also one of my secrets in college }
  • don’t cram.
  • 4 quizzes tomorrow and you haven’t started yet? Pick the most important and hardest subject. don’t focus too much on easy ones or the things you know already. waste of time.
  • facebook, texting, twitter, tumblr, instagram.. stay away from them for 40 minutes. you can have them during your break time. believe me, walang kang matatapos kung kaharap mo sila.
  • use study technique like doing your own mnemonics, stories that you can relate to that particular topic, flashcards.
  • Study APPS: my study life, pomodoro, studyblue, evernote peek, simple mind, exam countdown.

           6. PLACE AND COMPANY. make sure you are studying in a good place, comfortable, well-lighted and ventilated, with good company or simply just by yourself. somehow it also affects the way you study. Be with your true friends with good and positive vibes always. Pharmacy is hard but it’ll be so much easier if you have your friends with you.

Showered in insults and false accusations. Names pinned to me like a memo board. Prodded and picked at. Underestimated. I could not resist to walk alone tonight in thought. Shame and pain covers my face but that blood that flowed, that flesh was torn,disfigured,and bruised was for me. That blood was poured on the ground from one place to the next. That great sacrifice was for me. When He said “it is finished”, the moment He rose from that tomb, it was all for me too. No amount of hate could hold back love. That grace was enough to cover all my past, present and future sin. There is nothing that I could do to make Jesus stop loving me. Thank you for your forgiveness. Your power is made perfect in my weaknesses. Thank you for the promise to never leave me. No names will stick to this child of yours. No one can fine tune me to create the type of sound they want to hear from me. This beautiful melody will forever play. The sound of You in me. As the crowd rages on, the sound of your unfailing love remains. The sound of your truth forever drowns it out. I belong to the King. This is who I am.

hey friends! for the past few weeks, i’ve accomplished many things: i completed my first animated short film, had a successful BFA show, and will be walking the stage for graduation, my college career is at its end!

so to celebrate i’m posting all my zero escape pro designs for ACNL for everyone to enjoy! <3 (some of these were posted on my old joypandaah blog just so you know, so you might still find those posts floating around tumblr)

BONUS: here’s some designs i created for my house, i recreated the hospital room and doors 3, 5, 7, 8 and one of the fancy-looking bedrooms.

*note: the memo design is best used for a custom cork/memo board item as shown here!

hope ya’ll like these, enjoy! you can see how i utilized everything in my house if you visit my dream town: 4900-2307-0961

If you two get in a serious fight, who apologizes first and how??

[[They spend a couple days sulking, then leave messages on their memo board along with little gifts like favorite candies or drinks and then bang that night or something idek and then let go of their grudge the next day because they can’t stay mad at each other for long no matter how big of a whiny, pouty mess they are because even though they don’t say it, they convey their apologies through little actions like that because tsunderebakacouple2k14]]

Hi! I am currently crafting for my future little and we are supposed to get a picture frame, letters, and 3-4 other crafts. I was wondering if you had any references for unique crafts because all I can think of is canvases and I really don't want to hand her a bunch of canvases and nothing else! Thank you!

I have 2 posts with lots of ideas for big/little gifts! The first is a master list of items to make or buy. The second post has cute and crafty ideas. I agree that one painted canvas is enough. For the other gifts you can choose from the numerous suggestions on the lists below. Some of my favorite big/little craft ideas include a decorated: clipboard, coasters, cork board, memo board, mason jar, wood box, etc… xoxo ;)
