[ 4.9.16 ] HELLO EVERYONE IM STILL ALIVE!!! I’ve been busy studying and revising for exams so I haven’t been on as much so sorry for that!! I really liked this week’s spread so ta-dah here it is. this week consisted a lot of studying till 2am and getting up at 7am to study again ;-;;;;
GOOD NEWS IS I HAVE ONE WEEK OFF AFTER MY EXAMS for me to chill for a bit before hardcore studying for my IGs *sobs*

Hope September will be a great month for everyone!!


Back to school in two days and I can’t be more excited!!!! Honestly, the last time I was this excited to go back to school was in my third year in high school. Now as I am entering my third year in university, four years after, I’m feeling it again. Maybe there’s just something about third years. Haha. Anyway, here’s a little something from my first semester last year!

This is an 8-page bullet reviewer from my HST 201B (Mainland Southeast Asia) class about the country of Laos. Basically, I annotated and highlighted a lot which made it easier for me to understand everything. I don’t really do this to other subjects/courses (forgive my bias) as I take my history classes VERY seriously for everything about history will always be my favorite subject. 


  1. ANNOTATIONS & HIGHLIGHTS: I printed the reviewer with a 4-inch (not sure) margin on the left side which is where I will place details about the bullets. For example, the first bullet states “LDR: The Lao People’s Democratic Republic”, and what I’ll do is highlight the main point which is “Lao People’s Democratic Republic” and put what it’s about on the left side of it. In this case, the answer is “Official name”. So if I decide to test my self, I will simply cover the right portion and try to answer them myself.
  2. COLORFUL POST-ITS: As you can see I placed colorful post-its for mnemonics or figures or additional info about the bullet. For example, the second bullet states the countries that share borders with Laos which are Thailand, Burma, China, Vietnam and Cambodia. So I put a small post-it underneath and place the first letters of the countries– “T-B-Ch-V-Ca” for easier memorization.
  3. YELLOW POST-ITS: I put those yellow post-its at the bottom right part of the reviewers labeled as “POINTS TO REMEMBER” to put anything that I think would be significant answers on the exam in that particular page. They could be people, dates, doctrines/treaties, etc.
  4. VOCABULARY: I basically underline (with a black pen or any pen) a word that I don’t understand and put its meaning beside it.

Color-coding content:

  • ANNOTATIONS & HIGHLIGHTS: I use two colors to highlight the bullets. Nothing is color-coded because I just want to use them alternately so that words would be easier to find and the reviewer won’t look like a coloring book. As for the annotations, two colored pens were used as well, which were then partnered with a corresponding highlighter. 
    • yellow highlighter on the right side, blue pen on the annotations on the left side
    • orange highlighter on the right, green pen on the left
    • black for the chapter/titles and vocabulary
  • COLORFUL POST-ITS (mnemonics):
    • pink for mnemonics
    • green for figures (land area, population, stats, etc.)
    • blue for other/additional info
  • YELLOW POST-ITS (important terms):
    • green for general state description/events
    • blue for politics
    • orange for places
    • violet for important people

That’s it! This is how it works for me but I’m pretty sure it looks messy for others. Anyway, it’s been a while since I posted so I wanted to share this, and if it helped/something isn’t clear, just let me know


P.S. They have captions.

“I was the stereotypical kid from Harlem. I was a good student until 4th grade, but then I started going down the wrong path. My friends started making fun of me for raising my hand too much, so I stopped participating in class. Instead of playing on the playground, I followed my friends and went to steal bikes. I had no direction by the time I finished high school. So I decided joined the army. To my surprise, I placed in the 96th percentile on the entrance exam. My superior officer recommended that I stay late and study for advancement, so I did. Then he recommended that I go to City College, so I did. I just finished twenty years of service, and now I want to go to law school. Sometimes I look back and think that the army took the young years of my life. But I was going nowhere. If the army hadn’t taken my youth, I wouldn’t have these older years.”


I’d risk my life for two things, love and revenge.

I used to write multiple times a day, every single day. But then the words were swallowed up by a terible case of writer’s block. But now I can feel them beginning to bubble back up again, and it fills my heart with such joy. Writing is my entire heart, and to know I’m slowly finding my way back to the words is so wonderful. Now, I’m gonna go make some coffee and get to work!

Doctor/Rose beach scene in Doomsday voted the greatest moment in sci fi TV by SFX magazine =)

An article about it is here, here is a quote from it:

The winning scene - which topped a list compiled from more than 90,000 reader votes - saw a hologram of The Doctor say his goodbyes to his sidekick but the image fades out before he has chance to say he loves her.

Tennant said of the climax to the pair’s story: “It all came together so perfectly in this scene that people still talk to me about it with misty eyes all these years later - and I suspect they always will.”

This is amazing and I’m so happy it was voted #1, I’m just not sure whether to
