ops 12

some advice, from me to you

- DATE. YOUR. WORK. I can’t stress enough how much this can really help. If you date all the worksheets and handouts that you’re given, it’ll make it so much easier to keep everything in order so you can find it when exam time comes around. 

- I like to have just the essentials when I go to classes. So for me, that’s a notebook (two for maths subjects- a summary book and a workbook), a clear plastic pocket, my pencil case, my laptop, my planner, a water bottle and, if I can’t keep a PDF of it on my laptop, my textbook. I use the plastic pocket to store all the loose handouts I receive, and I find it much easier than using a binder or something big and heavy. Once it gets filled up, I just get another one and use double-sided tape to stick the two together. 

- Adding on to the last point- if you can, keep all your textbooks digital and leave the hard copies at home. Your arms and back will thank you, and sometimes online copies have additional study material which can be a bonus. 

- It’s not a source of embarrassment to study. If you want to study, go to the library and study. Find a spare table in the cafeteria and study. Pull out your phone and read through your notes on there. Enhancing yourself is not something to be ashamed of.

- However, ensure that you are spending enough time relaxing and having fun with your friends. Downtime is important. It keeps you focused and happy, and gives you a break from all the stress.

- UTILISE YOUR TEACHERS. They are the ones who know the course inside-out. Most times, speaking to them can really help you.

- Prioritise. I know this seems obvious, but it can be something that’s really hard to do. Remember- you are your biggest priority. 

- Find out what works for you. You don’t have to fit into any category. Study however you want- if that’s in Starbucks, so be it. If that’s in a huge quiet library, so be it. If that’s in your favourite Indian restaurant, so be it. I have a friend whose sister used to sneak into the detention room during lunchtimes just so she could do her work in peace. Whatever works for you. 

- Try to look over your notes at least once every night. It really does help.

- Don’t waste your holidays.

- Don’t waste your nights, either. When you have no homework, CATCH UP. We’re all behind on something. I know. 

- Find a study buddy. Having someone else there to motivate you can be extremely beneficial. 

- I don’t listen to music with lyrics while I study, because the words distract me from my work and disrupt my thought processes. It sounds cliché, but classical music can really calm you down when you feel the rising panic of an overdue assignment. One of my favourite songs to listen to is “Salut d’amour, Op. 12″ by Edward Elgar. 

- TO-DO LISTS REALLY HELP ME. They motivate me and push me to finish them, because ticking off boxes is just so satisfying. 

- Keep a spare pencil case with pens, pencils, an eraser, and a ruler in your locker. 

- Always bring a drink bottle to school, and aim to finish it. It does wonders for your skin and helps with headaches.

- Set goals. It’s so much easier to reach big goals when you set a series of realistic, small ones that lead up towards your ultimate dream. 

That’s all I can think of right now! Please let me know if you enjoyed this post or if it helped you in any way, or if you have any other questions you want to ask (ask box and messages are always open, though I am by no means an expert) (I’ll try my best though). Thanks for reading!!

12. OP asked if it’s okay to draw a heart on the photocard, Haechan drew it for her. OP says that members of NCT DREAM have been growing well, how about Haechannie. Haechan,”That’s… In comparison, Jisung has grown A LOT taller” [j_yunoh]

13. OP says that Haechan is so pretty she thought he’s an angel. Haechan replied,”Not if I’m standing with Taeyong hyung~” OP replied,”If you are standing at the corridor even the ants will stop for you. Let’s work hard~” Haechan says thank you and even winked at her 😆 [moontell_]

My solo ops with J2 this year. :’)

Jensen was so sweet; he’s always doing a cute, crinkly-eyed smile when you walk up to him. All I could manage was a nervous ‘hello’ and asked if I could hug him “up here” as I reached my arms out (lol). I almost squealed at how tight he pulled me into him, I was totally pressed against his body. It was glorious. He is glorious. And looks like his gorgeous model self in this photo. x

And Jared is a doll as always; he said “hey, how are ya sweetie?” when I said hello and “no problem, babe” accompanied by a beautiful wink when I said thank you sooooooo much. :) He comes across as such a genuine dude. I love it.

It was an amazing day.

[translations] 2017.07.11 NCT 127 Cherry Bomb fan sign at Yongsan (Haechan‘s fan accounts)

https://www.instagram.com/p/BWaKoaclQKW/

1. OP: What did Haechan receive from Jeno and Jisung for your birthday?
HC: What did I get… Ah, I got cash.
OP: From Jisung?
HC: Both of them. Jisung always gifts money, but Jeno gave money to me only this time round.
OP: And, what about that 1000 piece puzzle?
HC: Puzzle? *looks at Mark on purpose for him to listen* Not yet! I didn’t even touch it!
Mark: Ha…………….. [musicstar1l22]

2. Haechan entered the venue after Johnny, a lot of focus went to him so he started walking really slowly it was so cute kekekeke

Initially HC couldn’t open the cap of the bottle, after some struggles he passed it to Mark for help. After that he spilled the water on the table, so he used tissue to wipe it.

Throughout the fansign he and Mark kept interacting with each other. When Mark used his clothes to wipe his glasses, HC judged him. When it was time for their ment, the sequence was Mark -> Donghyuck -> Taeyong. While Mark was holding the mike, the 2 of them (HC and MK) started conversing among themselves, Donghyuck used his shoulders to touch Mark’s.

Haechan placed 3 pens (used for signing) in between his fingers, and used that hand to hit Mark’s thigh.

OP showed the Polaroid she got of Haechan. Haechan is amazed because it’s his first time seeing the actual thing. He added that they really took 100 photos [soldhc]

3. Haechan: Hello~
OP: I’m noona!
HC: Noona~~
OP: Yeah! Any type of drinks you like?
HC: Nothing in particular, but recently I have cravings for barley tea
OP: Oh barley tea! Any fragrance you like?
HC: Fragrance? I only think of perfume.. Cl.. Clean…
OP: Clean warm cotton!
HC: Thank you! *OP says he kept the eye contact with her until she walked away* [990802_MarkLeee]

4. OP asked Haechan which color would represent him the best. He said he has no color. OP asked why. He said,”Because I can fit any color so it’s LIMITLESS colors!” [soldhc]

5. OP asked Donghyuck if he changed his signature, and the reason for that change. Haechan says just before Firetruck he fixed his signature in a rush, so he decided to change it this time! [962O1]
