1. Have a Positive Mental Attitude- Prime yourself
at being always comfortable and confident that u can do a lot better at
studying. Remember that you are studying things that will prove to be valuable
in real life.
2. Prepare your Work Space- Look for a place in your
home or bedroom where u think u can study and maintain concentration in your work.
Have materials stocked up and in place before your study. This way, u can
finish your work without any interruptions.
3. Avoid Cramming- study an hour a day even when
there’s no homework. Scan your notebooks and do a little advanced reading of your
textbooks. You can also research through the internet to learn more about the
topics u are covering in school. I suggest google scholar, it’s like
google but for students, it has the citations, and filters results so that only
helpful outcomes appear.
4. Do projects with more enthusiasm and
creativity- Don’t be afraid to think of new ideas or ways to present your
homework or projects. Teachers always give additional points to students who
show great effort in their works. SO, don’t be afraid to do something original,
do something that hasn’t been done before.
5. Raise Your Hand- Be active and establish a
friendly attitude towards your teachers. Offer to help them out in checking
some work, filing papers or just carrying their things. Little good things add
up in the end for that extra effort grade, and they’ll always remember you as a
very helpful student.
6. Enjoy Reading the Latest News- Find
connections or associations with your life as a student, as a child, as a
friend, or as a citizen. Certain reports would always ask for u to react so
better be ahead with current events which you may be affected with.
7. Listen to Your Teacher, take a few notes- In
my experience, the more i copy and take down notes, the more i get lost in the
lecture. It is best to listen first and understand before u jot down any
important keywords. Yes, use keywords, simple doodles and arrows to make
associations. These will help u remember all concepts mentally.
8. Keep Notes on Index Cards- I use personally
use the smaller oxford ones, they are more portable honestly pretty aesthetic..
9. Watch TV Wisely- Yep you heard it, TV, when
watching TV I sometimes pick up points which may seem relevant in my life. They
sometimes even have something to do with what’s happening in class at the
moment so, always initiate conversation about the latest shows and issues you
have watched. Don’t be afraid to argue and defend your opinions.
Zimbits AU where your world is black and white until you hear your soulmate laugh
Jack knows his parents’ story off by heart.
Bob had been on the ice at an away game. The crowd was screaming; it was overtime. Things had been a bit tense.
And then Bob had put a puck in the net of the opposition and that was it. The disappointed home audience had fallen into a quiet grumble after some polite clapping. Many hands were slapped on Bob’s back as the team skated towards the edge of the ice. Bob had been just about to leave the rink, and then-
A laugh. A snorting, wonderful laugh, and his world filled with color.
He had frozen where he stood, ears caught on the sound of that laugh and the voice that followed.
“I told you, didn’t I? No one’s got it like Bad Bobby Z!”
It was his turn to let out a laugh and he did, with gusto. His voice boomed so loud it had seemed to reverberate around the arena, every head swiveling to the source of the noise.
Every time he told that story, Bob swore blind he heard his soulmate’s gasp in the ensuing silence. Alicia would roll her eyes fondly, stating that she did not gasp, thank you very much, and that the dreadful nickname she’d called him had been popular among hockey fans at the time.
Whatever the truth, they’d introduced themselves moments later and were married within the year. It was like that, with soulmates. Instantaneous.
Jack’s not heard that story since before the Draft. He knows people think if he’d found his soulmate before- before, he wouldn’t have done it. But people tend to over romanticize things out of habit. In the end, soulmates and laughter and colors had very little to do with how he ended up here.
