Flower markets are my favorite thing ever, especially if the flowers are color coordinated. I took these pictures while I was in Prague, and they were totally worth the weird looks from the shop keeper :’)). Featuring my September monthly, where I immediately used one of those pics, and some French vocabulary – I might turn these drawings into little vocab worksheets, stay tuned for that!!
On the 23rd of the month of September, in an early year of a decade not too long before our own, the human race suddenly encountered a deadly threat to its very existence. And this terrifying enemy surfaced, as such enemies often do, in the seemingly most innocent and unlikely of places…
A list of things (and reasons) to do before your classes begin.
Gather all the information you need. Where, what and when? This refers to your classes mostly. Also, you should know where all the important places are: library, place where you can print files, stores with cheap stuff, caffes etc. This applies to everyone, not just students who are living in a new city.
I recommend you make a shopping list before you actually do the shopping. I made a mistake last year where I wanted to be spontaneous and just buy whatever I feel like I need. NO, just no. You’ll end up spending more money, time and you probably won’t get everything you need.
Shooping lists are a must. Here’s what I think should be on everyone’s list:
Always check if you’ve got some of these left from the last school year, so you don’t buy more than you need.
-clothes- warm, comfortable clothes you can wear in multiple occasions (jeans for school, but also for going out, see what I mean?) And also laundry and socks, because you always need them. Pjs, robes etc. - for the lazy study sessions.
-decorations for your room- don’t overdo on this one, just one or two things to kinda “cheer up” your study place (plants, candles, cute mugs)
-bed sheets- I often study in my bed, so this is a must for me + bed sheets are so underrated
I like to stock up on things such as shampoo, beauty products, pads, snack bars, coffee etc. When I get busy with classes I have 0 amount of time to go around town shopping for these and I always need them.
I “accidentally” found the names of the lectures planned for september and already started reading them. I’m a freak, but you don’t have to be one. It’s still a good thing to do research on topics you know you’ll have to study in the future.
4. Clean up your room.
I spent two days, getting rid of trash, organising old notes I need and don’t need, making space for new supplies etc. This way when my textbooks arrive I’ll already have a spot for them, and I’ll avoid the mess.
5. Have “the talk” with someone.
I’m not talking about the sex talk, lol. I’m talking about setting goals for the new semester and talking with someone about them. Your mum, dad, friend, dog, someone on studyblr. I don’t know why, but it feels good to have someone listen to you when you’re talking about something you’re passionate about.
6. Make a playlist.
Life-saver advice. Make different playlist e.g. “Workout”, “Morning study”, “Break time”, “All-nighter” etc. Eventually you’ll add more songs, but it’s easier to have something to start with.
7. Plan, plan, plan
I’m not yet familiar with my schedule, but I’m slowly brainstorming how my week-days are going to look like.
I know I’m like obsessed with planing and studying, but the only reason I’m doing this is to avoid the mess ‘caused by the new begining.
One more thing: please start studying asap. Don’t procrasinate and go behind schedule.
The fact that you even have a studyblr blog is enough to prove that you’re smart and awesome and that you’re giving your best!!! :)
Autumn to me… is sitting in bed, bundled up in some cozy blankets, sipping on a porcelain cup with a little fox painted on it and filled with tea, listening to the instrumental music of video games, lighting that pumpkin candle, opening the windows and letting the cool gentle breeze flow through your room with a little hint of pumpkin in the air, putting on knee high socks and boots so I can run through the forest in search of mushrooms and acorns, foraging for little bits of fall nature to take inside and treasure, going antique shopping at an old flea market in a small town, decorating the house with spooky decor, buying tons of halloween socks, making homemade apple pie and sharing it with my family, feeling that warm…happiness inside and smiling from ear to ear because your life feels new and refreshing.
In an early year of a decade not too long before our own…the human race suddenly encountered a deadly threat to its very existence. And this terrifying enemy surfaced, as such enemies often do…in the seemingly most innocent and unlikely of places.
Click the link above^^^ to take a small preview/tour/look at my shop before it officially opens. Payments will be accepted tomorrow on the 20th (at around noonish PST, idk, whenever i wake up) so if you still can’t buy anything it’s because its not open yet!
Also, I’m going to be retiring my Voltron Moon+Stars charms after this batch gets sold! They’ve had a very solid good run but i think i def want to make new ones. Get them before they’re gone for good!
Looks like another pop-up shop is happening! This time it’s at the Limited Base store in PARCO (Nagoya). The shop will run from September 9 to September 27. The merch lineup includes a Puu towel, a wall clock, acrylic standees, a Hiei eye mask, a clear file set, color changing mugs, stickers, badges, and a Toguro bookmark.
Does anyone else ever get an intense craving to go autumn shopping? Like when you go to the shopping centre and there are dark colours and knitwear in all the shops instead of florals and pastels, there are Christmas lights and cinnamon scented candles, Hallowe'en decorations everywhere and giant bags of sweets for trick or treaters me.
I want it now.
