more unconventional study tips

- if you drank coffee while revising, drink coffee before the exam. if you didn’t, don’t

- listen to one type of music (genre/artist) while revising a certain topic, listen to that music on your way to the exam

- wear the same colour nail polish/perfume when revising and when you’re in the exam

- keep your sleep schedule the same. try to get 8 hours while revising and also the night before the exam. don’t stay up cramming and exhaust yourself

- it’s better to do one hour every day in the week leading up to the exam than 7 hours in one day the day before

these tips can help trigger your memory, they sound weird but they really do work

A Really Fucking Vulgar Guide to Not Losing Your Shit in College (Condensed Version)

Bitches love to put things into lists. Moreover, bitches love numbered shit. Here’s some numbered shit in list format to help you not suck in higher education. You’re welcome.

1. Go to class. Like 210% serious. I don’t give a shit if you’re a get by on nothing, A+ slacker. You’re fucking paying for this crap so you might as well get the services owed to you. Take your ass to class even if you zone out 99% of the time. You know 1% more than you did when you walked up in there. Congrats, asshole.

2. All that free time you have during your first week of classes? Make it your bitch. Don’t just print the goddamn syllabus and be like all done. No motherfucker. Take a good fucking look at that assignment list. What’s due next week? Yeah, do that shit now bc I know you don’t have anything else to do. Then when you’re coughing up a lung six weeks into the semester and don’t feel like getting your ass up to do that calculus homework, you’ll remember this week. You’ll remember that you’ve been a week ahead this whole damn semester. Pat yourself on the back, ass wipe.

3. Prepare yo self. No seriously. You got notes to print for class? Sure you could be like all those other bitches and just shove them into your backpack, or you could actually /prepare/ for class. I’m talking looking that shit over, identifying key concepts, getting a decent grasp of the material before your ass is even in class. You a STEM major? Yeah, make this kinda shit your life because now class is like one bomb ass group review session. Again, you’re welcome.

4. Snack like a motherfucker, but save that junk food shit for the weekends. From now on, you are a fucking health guru during the week or if you’re a slacker like me, at least on the days you have class. Fruits? Hell yeah. Pack some of those. Mind wandering in class? Snack on some apple slices. Can’t stay awake? Keep eating some almonds or some shit, but don’t be that bitch with the potato chips. Just don’t.

5. Read. Yeah, you heard me. Read and I’m not just talking assigned reading. I bet my left butt cheek that your campus library has /something/ of interest to you. Commuting and don’t want to drive out there? Library databases bro. We’re in the digital age, motherfucker. I’d bet my other butt cheek that the shit you want is in a nice little PDF somewhere. But na man, you thinking maybe you want to go into computer science? Check out computer science books and eat them up bro. You don’t like reading them? Probably not the field for you. You a biology major in your second year? Yeah dumbass. Time to break out the bio books and not the ones your professor is shoving in your face. Amaze your friends and teachers with your out of class knowledge. Be a fucking star.

At this point I am just impressed. and those freaking #’s took me wayyyy to long.

Hello! Thank you @avidlove for sending in a request for this masterpost! I honestly had so much fun making it (and the icons) ahaha. This is basically just a quick guide on my school essentials. Hopefully it’ll be useful for you guys!

PS: I made all icons except the first 2 paper clips, the whistle, and the 2 water bottles. Those were taken from Google Images. All credit goes to respective owners.

Sam’s Ultimate Failproof Guide to Packing

Extensive Packing List

Warning: This will seem like a lot, but it doesn’t once you get there, and you can use your own judgment as to whether or not you will need something. Also, this particular list is geared towards my specific univeristy

  1. Bedroom
    1. Bedding
      1. Duvet cover and insert or comforter
      2. Matching sham
      3. Sheets and pillow cases (I recommend two sets of cotton minimum, one set of flannel in addition is optional)
      4. Egg crate topper (super cheap but super comfy after the first few nights—you may want to get a second one towards the end of the school year)
      5. Mattress pad—holds the topper in place
      6. Mattress protector (as recommended by an Anon). Some universities have bed bug problems, and you never really know what happened on your bed before it was yours, and this will help ensure a little more help on the cleanliness front.
      7. Pillows
      8. Stuffed animals
    2. Desk Area
      1. Stapler
      2. printer, ink, and paper
      3. Three hole punch
      4. Binders and notebooks
        1. For some classes you’ll want to keep every piece of paper ever (things related to your major and math classes), so these will need to be in binders.
        2. Math and science classes lend themselves to hand-written notes, so you’ll want to use a binder with loose leaf paper or the notebook of your choosing for those.
          *note* My personal favorites are Mead Five Start Flex Hybrid Notebinders
      5. Pens, pencils, Sharpies (you will use black and silver frequently for labeling random things)
      6. Tape dispenser (can be a cheap $2 plastic one, or a heavy duty, belongs in the office of a CEO one)
      7. glue sticks (yes, you will use them)
      8. Headphones
      9. Phone and laptop
      10. Phone and laptop chargers
      11. HDMI cord (literally the most used item in my dorm room)
      12. Power strip
      13. Desk lamp
      14. Post Its, paperclips, extra staples, push pines
    3. Closet and Laundry
      1. Leave your high school shirts at home unless you want to use them as sleep shirts. You’ll get plenty of shirts from your college or university.
      2. Hangers. Mine are mismatched and plastic and came straight from my closet at my mother’s.
      3. Hamper. You can choose your preference here. I prefer sturdy plastic with handles, but my roommate loved her fabirc one. Walmart has one that rolls, which is cool. Maybe you just want a laundry bag.
      4. Detergent.
      5. Fabric softener and Downy balls
      6. Dryer sheets
    4. Other
      1. Fridge
      2. coffee mugs (can use for tea, coffee, soup, ice water, milk for cookies, Spaghetti-Os, literally anything you can think of)
      3. microwave if you don’t have one in the common area/common area is far away
      4. Small table lamp or floor lamp (put this somewhere across the room from the desk lamp because overhead lighting is the worst)
      5. Books and movies
      6. TV (optional, I use mine as a second monitor pretty frequently)
      7. Video game console, accessories, and games (if desired)
      8. Purse/wallet
      9. Trash bags
      10. ALL THE CLEANING SUPPLIES
      11. Canvases, posters, pictures, corkboards, etc
      12. Command strips (the Velcro kind of the absolute best) and sticky tack (Loc-Tite brand, it’s blue)
      13. Keurig or coffee pot (if you’re into that) and all the fixin’s
  2. Bathroom – some of these are included because I have a bathroom within my dorm room
    1. Trash can
    2. Shower curtain, liner, and rings
    3. Bathmat
    4. Toilet brush and cleaner
    5. Plunger. Plumbing on campuses can be iffy
    6. Lady supplies (if you need those sort of things)
    7. Toiletries and makeup
    8. Some sort of caddy if you’re living in traditional or you’re sharing your bathroom with multiple people and don’t want to clutter the counter
    9. Toothbrush holder
    10. Soap dispenser
    11. hand towels, bath towels, wash cloths

Suggestions for use of this printable: do something new every 10 days or also mark your “treat yourself” days (you deserve it!)

Hopefully when you’ve reached the end, you’d be proud to see the great things you’ve accomplished!

Assignment Tracker

If you’re like me who’s prepping to go back to uni for the summer semester, or if you’re still in school dealing with finals season, here’s a more school-focused to-do list!

I’ve had a couple of messages asking me what the little progress circles (some called it “bubbles” which are cuter imo) are for and how I use them. They’re basically an estimate of how much I’ve done for a specific task. For example, I have to write a research paper. Given that the structure of the task is made up of several parts (abstract, intro, method, etc.), I can shade one or two circles if I finished the abstract and intro within a study session.

I started using this method in the beginning of my sophomore year in uni. I felt that it was more motivating to see all those circles getting shaded as I progressed in the task as compared to ticking a checkbox, which I could only do if I finished the entire project.

Links for download:

As some of you requested, I’ve put up a printables masterpost page so you can check out all of my previous work! A printables info/FAQ page is in the works as well. 😊

Lastly, I’d like to send a massive thank you for the lovely messages and visits to my blog. It means the world to me. 💖 Just know that my ask box, Twitter DM (cxptainstark), or Snapchat (ariadnejessica) will always be open if you need someone to talk to.

I hope you all have a great month!

Coagulation cascade made simple.

Someone shared this with me on my surgery clerkship and I wanted to pass it forward. 

1) Everything centers around the perfect 10

2) 7 is a lucky number so I keep it to myself

3) 8 and 5 are cofactors

4) 3, 4, 6 do not exist

5) When you draw it out, it looks like a gun, and your trigger finger (TF) would go by the 7. so TF (tissue factor) goes by 7

6) You use guns and trigger fingers in war, so that’s the part effected by warfarin. The other one is heparin

7) The shorter path has the test with fewer letters (PT). The longer path has the test with more letters (PTT).

The last “rule” was told to me by someone else, but it helps me every time, so I’ll include it here:

8) PET is WET (PT, extrinsic, warfarin) and [Brad] PITT is a HIT (PTT, intrinsic, heparin)
