students free

3

I’ve been waiting a long time for a major political party in Canada to push for free university tuition & debt relief. Glad to finally see some movement in this direction from the NDP.

Student debt, while not quite as severe as in the USA, is a serious problem for my generation. I’m almost $30,000 in debt, and that’s likely going to rise before I graduate.

HOW TO GET ORGANIZED

Have a system and stick to it!

  • Find a way that works for you in regards to school supplies and organizational methods. Some common ones include a folder for each class, a binder for each class, a notebook for each class, etc. Once you’ve found this system, and you’ve seen concrete evidence that it is effective (i.e. increased scores, less stress, etc) DO NOT CHANGE THE SYSTEM! The fact that the system is working is proof that you should continue what you’re doing!

Use a planner! Use a planner! Use a planner!

  • I can NOT stress enough the necessity to use a planner. Rely on the planner as if it is your own first born child, and your lifeblood. Planning is essential to staying on track with assignments and turning things in on time. Without them, you’re sure to not succeed.
Have a clean space

  • If your study space is not clean, then your thoughts will be as cluttered as the space is. Cleaning your study space will assist you in filtering out your schedule, and determining what needs to be done versus what will be done later. Filtering like this assists in the organizational process.

Keep your physical and mental health the main priority

  • There is absolutely, positively NO WAY to become organized if your physical and mental health are slacking. Your personal self needs to be prioritized over any assignment, ALWAYS. This is the key to success.

Normalize breaks

  • Many avid and dedicated studiers, especially within the studyblr community, work consistently with little to no breaks. I am here to discourage this as much as humanly possible. Taking breaks is essential to proper functioning and to excelling in academics. Normalize them, take them, and love them.

                                            “Their Minds Are Open”


Originally designed for students, can be used with family members or friends who need that little nudge to think about things. It doesn’t cause a fundamental shift in views, simply makes the mind more able to think about new ideas and suggestions without bias. 

Yesterday there were these guys in a van in my school’s courtyard giving random students free “hot chocolate”. I refused when they gave me a cup, although my friend took a sip. Turned out it was just hot water with a little chocolate powder on top. When we asked about it, our teacher said they were the school’s sponsors.

I made myself an printable for the exam period 🤓 but I cant seem to figure out how to get pdfs up on tumblr so that I can post this in proper quality… Any super humans out there who know how I can fix it? Any help would be appreciated ❤️ Edit: Got it up and running! Here is the link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0G5JxeNcPPZM3EwSXQ0QkVwMUE/view?usp=sharing

St. Patrick’s Day in a university town is always surreal. My friend and I saw cops breaking up three different house parties at 11am while we were driving to a grad faculty event.
