Remember kids:

time < productivity 

just because you studied for 5 hours today, doesn’t mean you studied

I’m so sick and tired of the studyblr/appblr mentality that MORE studying is BETTER studying. If studying for 3 hours a day works for you, great! But don’t feel obligated to study for long periods of time just because it’s a common theme in the community. 

Study for as long as you need to. Don’t set a goal of “I’m gonna study for 4 hours today after school!” No. No, no, no. You’re going at this all wrong. Aim to study until you understand the concepts, until you feel confident about the material. Whether that takes 20 minutes or 2 hours is up to you. 

It’s not about how long you study for, it’s what you do with the time that counts.

Emma Watson’s dress at the Met Gala was made from recycled plastic bottles.

This is what she wrote on Facebook:

Thank you Calvin Klein & Eco Age for collaborating with me and creating the most amazing gown. I am proud to say it is truly sustainable and represents a connection between myself and all the people in the supply chain who played a role in creating it.

The body of the gown is crafted from three different fabrics, all woven from yarns made from recycled plastic bottles (!). Plastic is one of the biggest pollutants on the planet. Being able to repurpose this waste and incorporate it into my gown for the  #MetGala proves the power that creativity, technology and fashion can have by working together.

Each and every part of this beautiful gown has been produced with sustainability in mind, even the components that you can’t see. The zippers on the gown are made from recycled materials and the inner bustier has been crafted from organic cotton. Conventional cotton is one of the highest impact crops, using more chemicals than any other crop in the world. Organic cotton on the other hand, is grown without the use of the most harmful chemicals and is therefore better for the environment and people working with cotton. The organic silk used in the lining of my gown is certified to a standard that guarantees the highest environmental and social standards throughout production. It is my intention to repurpose elements of the gown for future use. The trousers can be worn on their own, as can the bustier, the train can be used for a future red carpet look… I’m looking forward to experimenting with this. Truly beautiful things should be worn again and again and again. #30wears

I hope you like it! The ultimate #30Wears! #MetGala2016
