The test in next Thursday. You’re lucky, the test is one of the last. Honestly, it’s too late to read your whole textbook and learn everything. Does that matter? No. But here’s some last minute things to keep in mind.
WATCH ALL OF CRASHCOURSE. It’s an easy way to study. It helps. You learn a ton. It’s a life saver. It’s how I got a four. My teacher didn’t teach so John Green taught me instead.
Freak out now. Realize you know nothing and cry and breakdown. Do it now. Get it out of your system. The day of the test, you shouldn’t be crying.
For god’s sake, start studying now. It seems early. It feels like you have time. From personal experience, my friends and I started studying the Monday of the week of the test. We all said we should have started studying the week before. Trust me, start studying now.
THE DAY BEFORE THE TEST- Relax. You will want to cram. Don’t. I felt sick from stress the day before so I took a nap outside and didn’t study. I felt great.
The day of the test, some of my friends did last minute cramming. I just laughed hysterically and couldn’t sit still. Some people were honestly calm.
Basically what I learned was that on the day of the test, don’t freak out, don’t cram. Just stay calm and focused and it’s like going into a big game if you’ve ever played sports. Be happy, focused, calm, excited. Don’t go in not caring but also don’t be sick with stress. Try for that balance.
The test looks hard because there’s so much history oh my god it’s overwhelming(all AP history classes look like that). But it’s not as bad as it looks. Just take it one question at a time. When you look at your essay prompts, just take a deep breath.
You know more than you think you do. Trust yourself.
If you don’t know anything, guess, make something up
If the essay is about Asia or Africa and you are stuck, think about what you know about Europe in that time period. It will help. Is it before imperialism? Is the United States a world power? You can draw conclusions from that. Remember, since the test is more about a flow of ideas and events, about the interaction, you can use what you know of other places to help.
Bring a black pen with you.
It’s seriously easier than it looks.
If you know you have no clue about a multiple choice question, don’t waste time thinking too hard. Just move on, save time. There are some you can figure out with logic. Use your time on them.
Seriously, just relax. You’re gonna be fine. You’re going to be okay.
Know you’re not alone. Look around you and realize everyone else is as screwed as you are. It doesn’t help but it’s fun to see how everyone deals with it.
with harry himself exposing so much of a different side of himself along with his friends and gemma speaking about him, this whole magazine was a huge character witness against the Harry Styles™ that the general public thinks he is. Yes, us fans knew he was like this but now everyone can know and I think it’s so so great.
yandere simulator: *has a main character who cold-blooded stabs people, burn them alive, drowns them, kidnaps and torture to the point they lose the ability of understanding and willing, brings people to suicide through bullying, blackmails, all for her love interest who she stalks on daily basis* people: OMG YASSSSSSSSS YAN CHAN IS MY WAIFU *-* I LUV HER yandere dev: btw she’s a bad guy ok remember you’re playing as a freakin murderer people: WHOC ARES I LOVE HER *7* last update: *happens* people: this game is bad yandere dev is bad i hope yall get killed until you die
I wish more people would realize that Kaidan Alenko is dangerous. Not only because of the obvious raw biotic power. He’s a pragmatic soldier with a penchant for justice. He knows the line between mercy and still punishing a person even if they have a sob story because justice needs to be served.
Kaidan Alenko is dangerous because he’s really fucking good at what he does and a lot of people don’t see it behind warm whiskey eyes. What needs to get done will get done. Underestimation is the best weapon someone can have. They never see you coming.
willing 2 get his hands bloody for the greater good
terrified of dying alone
always always willing to change his mind and admit his mistakes (especially for the above)
but can still say shitty or insensitive things
arrogant about his way of thinking
curious and passionate about learning about other cultures and peoples and ideas
doggedly believes in the fundamental right of all creatures to be free in body and in mind
furious when people or cultures do not respect that freedom (e.g. the qun)
someone who constantly strives to deconstruct traditional ideologies and question established norms
someone compassionate, who cares desperately for people – and especially people who get shit on by society at large (elves, mages, other oppressed groups, etc)
someone who says guilt is only a hindrance and that he has no time for it, but nevertheless, feels massively guilty over what his well-intentioned exploits have done to the world
someone who doesn’t want to lord their knowledge over people, but share it – someone who isn’t pretentious, does not affect or see the need to do so (“no real good need prove himself”), but deeply values open-mindedness and wants other people to be open-minded in turn.
someone who thinks the dalish are elitist knowledge-hoarders, that the dalish think they’re better than other elves because they are able to remember a few romanticized scraps of ~the glory days~, and THAT’S why he has a problem with them – because they look down on other elves and lord their knowledge above everyone, not because he likes to do so
a really fuckin well rounded character with lots of meaningful faults, none of which involve solas being an innocent blushy passive egg OR a malicious pretentious elitist academic douchebag OR a distant and untouchable god who told lavellan about the vallaslin because he just had to be right bc he’s cruel and doesn’t care about their feelings OR an unwaveringly racist elf-supremacist elf-hater (????)
do you guys remember season 3 CS? so good. i mean yeah emma’s walls were up and she was super guarded but i really loved all that sexual tension they had going on. plus i enjoyed their FRIENDSHIP. like they were legit friends that worked together and went on adventures and started to trust one another. sure they weren’t confirmed true love yet, or emma didn’t go full on dark swan to save him, and he didn’t die for her a million times, they had 1 kiss back then instead of 7534. all the epic stuff was still to come but yet they were friends who had each other’s back, constant banter, moments where they opened up etc. that friendship was the basis of everything we have now. from enemies to FRIENDS to true love. no otp compares.
we all know jungkook used to be such a shy bean and has always been sort of bad at expressing himself and his true emotions. remember how he used to always harshly reject jimin and push him away?
of course we all know jungkook always loved jimin and the members from the start, but remember all those running jokes about jikook being one sided that have been in this fandom since FOREVER ago? it must’ve been because he was so embarrassed to get that kind of attention on camera. he was just straight up embarrassed and shy.
but recently he’s definitely become more confident and sure of himself, to the point where now he’s going full out derpy meme lord on us.
and idk if you’ve noticed, but he’s also been so much more openly affectionate not only with jimin, but with all the other members too. and yeah he does have many past moments where he was openly affection with his members, but they felt kinda rare, unlike nowadays :’)
sure i am onboard the jikook ship 4lyfe but honestly, it just makes me so happy in general that jungkook is opening up more, that he feels more and more comfortable in his own skin, comfortable enough to share with us glimpses of his true self. this boy who started off so early in the entertainment business, unsure of himself and afraid to express himself, now makes silly faces, takes hilariously derpy selfies and posts them for us to see, and trolls around even more with his hyungs (like when he was imitating tae and annoying jimin) but also equally shows them his love for them. and for this, i seriously couldn’t be any happier.
