Some pages of my notebook of A-level Biology’s 2 years class. Never thought I’ll say this, but I miss those classes so much. *cries* As the saying goes “You never appreciate something until it’s gone.”
Indent the first line of each paragraph by half an inch
Use a header that includes your last name and page number in the top right hand corner
The First Page:
In the upper left hand corner:
Your Instructor’s Name
The Class Title
The Date (Day Month Year)
The title of your paper should be one double-space down and should not be bolded, italicized, or underlined
The beginning of your paper should start one double-space down from the title with the first line indented by half an inch
What to Italicize and Quote:
Book titles are italicized
Play titles are italicized
Poem titles have quotation marks
Article titles have quotation marks
Chapter titles have quotation marks
When you know the author’s last name
(Last Name Page Number) or
(Last Name Paragraph or Line Number)
When you don’t know the author’s last name
(Book Title Page Number)
(Article Title Page Number)
Remember to italicize the book titles and put the article titles in quotation marks
Works Cited Page:
Begin your Works Cited page on a separate page at the end of your research paper. It should have the same one inch margins and header as the rest of your paper
Label the page “Works Cited” (do not italicize or put in quotations) on the top of the page and center it
Double space all citations but do not skip spaces between entries
Indent the second line of a citation by half an inch
List sources in alphabetical order
If the source has more than one author, the first given name appears in last name, first name format and the following authors appear in last name, first name format separated by commas. The last author’s name should be preceded by an “and”
Citing Print Sources:
Book or Poem:
Last Name, First Name. Title of Book or Poem. City of Publication: Publisher, Year of Publication. Print.
Magazine or Newspaper Article:
Last Name, First Name. “Title of Article.” Title of Periodical Day Month Year: pages. Print.
Last Name, First Name. “Title of Article.” Title of Journal Volume.Issue (Year): pages. Print.
Citing Web Sources:
Name of Site. Sponsor or Publisher, date of resource creation. Web. Date of access.
Web Page or Web Article:
Last Name, First Name. “Title of Article.” Name of Site. Sponsor of Publisher, date of resource creation. Web. Date of access.
Online Journal Article:
Last Name, First Name. “Title of Article.” Title of Journal Volume.Issue (Year): pages. Web. Date of access.
Note: Don’t forget to indent the second line in the citation. I did not indent the examples because the indents on tumblr mobile and tumblr desktop differ starkly and I figured this was probably the less confusing way to write the information needed for a citation (trust me)
Unknown Information in Citations:
If the author is unknown, begin citation with the title
If the publisher is unknown, write “n.p.” in its place (no quotation marks)
If the publishing date is unknown, write “n.d.” in its place (no quotation marks)
I hope this guide is as useful for me as it it for you!
Doing some more trigonometry review. I’ve summarized some of the identities that I’ve learnt so far so that they can be found and accessed easier when I need to use them again. I’ve also made a studygram which is so exciting!! I’ve linked it in this post. :-) (I know I have some unanswered asks, I’m soo sorry, I’ll try answer them asap, I’ve just been so busy!)
revised some simple math concepts today.
i’ve realised that sometimes i get so used to learning more of the complex formulas and functions that i forget practical math things like long division hahaha
the weather was nice today and i really enjoyed it.
on the bad side of things, i clumsily slammed my pinky toe and its counterparts into the door today and i am limping everywhere now ahahaha oh whale
I wrote these notes yesterday. For some reason I woke up at 5 a.m. and couldn’t go back to sleep, so I decided to do some chemistry lol. I made so many mistakes while writing this, so much white out was used ahh. I’ve posted so many pictures of my notes on here, I want to start posting some resources and advice so I’m working on a post!! :)
For Everyone Starting Their Weight Loss Plans Tomorrow
1- Make sure that you
Have accurate weight / measurements recorded [make sure you weigh yourself early, after you use the bathroom and before you eat breakfast]
Think about what meals you want to eat for the day.
Start meal prepping for the week [if you have time, cook them, if not, just write them down]
Pick a time when you will be done eating for the day[mines will be 7PM]
Pick a cheat day [if you want one]
Pick a “weigh in day” [ don’t weigh yourself everyday, you will stress yourself out, weight fluctuates every 24 hours or so]
Go food shopping
Download a fitness / health / weight tracker app on your phone [make sure everyday that your pedometer is turned on, it will count your steps, calories burned and miles went. ] (if you have a Samsung Galaxy you should have the SHealth Fitness app)
2- Some Helpful Tips From Me
Aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise EVERY SINGLE DAY
Buy Vanilla Protein Powder [I use a small amount of it as a replacement for sugar / artificial sweeteners in my smoothies]
DON’T WORRY ABOUT COUNTING CALORIES [to me it’s tedious and as long as you watch your serving sizes, sodium intake and know that what you’re eating is already super healthy, then you are good!]
If you don’t have a set workout plan go on Youtube. There are so many long / short workout videos, create a playlist.
KNOW YOUR LIMITS. Do not feel bad that you cannot do certain moves or do something for too long. That should inspire you to want to build your stamina and endurance.
Set small goals. Instead of 100 pounds this year, aim for 2 pounds a week / 8 -10 pounds a month.
Plan your workouts according to time.
3: VERY IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER
Please do not stress yourself out over a single thing because you will end up wanting to quit if things get overwhelming. Trust me, I know. It’s happened to me like 100 times. Some of these things cannot be done by everyone, whether it be lack of money or lack of time or even motivation. The #1 issue I have is that I feel like I’m not doing enough so I end up stopping. Some days will be better than others, do not let 1 bad day or 2 or even 3, be the reason you give up. Lastly, please remember that the idea / task of weight loss is MORE MENTAL THAN PHYSICAL. Whenever you get lazy, just think about every single day you’re uncomfortable. Think about how you’ve been trying to change for years. Think about new clothes, the amount of energy and the new confidence and all of the new things you’ll be able to experience this year simply because you feel better about yourself…
I’d really appreciate it if you guys tagged me in your posts/ blog entries about your progress for the next few months… I’m giving out tips and advice but I myself need motivation…..
