How to manage to study when you're sick?? It's finals week next week and I'm feeling awful 😭
Hello! Here are a few things that could help:
prepare yourself in the morning - have breakfast, brush your teeth, wash your face/shower, drink some water, stretch, get dressed! Getting yourself ready and not staying in your pj’s will really help! I always will do a little morning routine before I study/revise/read/etc.
get smaller things done early - I prefer to do menial tasks in a morning like tidy my bedroom/bathroom/desk etc. One, I like to have everything in order but two, it means I’m more alert when it comes to getting on!
figure out what priority everything needs to be done in - depending on how you like to organise you can either plan it out in subject order or use the Eisenhower Decision Matrix which decides the urgency and importance of each task. If you need an example, here is one! It can just give you a bit more structure on what needs to be done first.
break up your time - do not work for hours on end! Try to work for about 25-30 minutes with short breaks in between. If you need some help on managing your time, check out this post. During your breaks, treat yourself to something nice and relaxing!
look after yourself - make sure you’re drinking enough, eating right, getting sleep! Take medicine when you can. Use things like nasal sprays, Vicks vapor rubs to help ease your symptoms. Maybe looking down to write notes isn’t the best option if you’ve got a runny nose, so maybe try work from your computer!
make your study space productivity - make sure it is bright, clear and organised! Gather all the things you need so you don’t have to get up every 5 minutes. Also, if you can try to study away from your bed. You’ll be more inclined to sleep if you on it. Keep a glass of water and tissues close by.
take it easy and don’t punish yourself - look, you’re sick and it is fair enough that you aren’t your usual productive self. It is awesome you’re trying so don’t get upset if you don’t get everything finished because you’re a little slower than normal. don’t stay up late - try to finish your work before you have dinner at night. It is always nice to just curl up on the sofa and watch a movie when you’re sick. If you can get the priorities done, then you can relax!
First of all, I just want to say a great, big THANK YOU to everyone who participated! There was a lot of great content and I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only one out there for whom ace headcanons are important. ^_^
As a final tally, we had a total of 19 contributions by 16 people:
13 works of fanart
4 works of fanfiction
12 modern AU works
5 canon era works
(2 whose era I was unsure of)
Enjolras and Grantaire were by far the most common characters, with a smattering of Courfeyrac, Cosette, and Joly.
I know I had a lot of fun, and I hope you all did, too!
Same place next year? ^_~

Hey Remus I just wanted to apologise for last night I know I shouldn’t have called you at all and I’m absolutely sorry for waking you up at 3 in the morning. I have no idea what I said and I hope I didn’t make you uncomfortable, I was just regretting some of the choices I made I think, you know how I say what comes to my mind when I’m drunk. Please don’t feel obligated to reply to this and once again I’m sorry.
“You know how I say what comes to my mind when I’m drunk?!?!”
Remus was walking up and down his small living room, clutching the phone like it was his lifeline.
“YOU KNOW HOW—” he yelled out. “That son of a bitch.”
He felt so angry but he had also a small curl to his lip. Regretting some choices? You better, you wanker.
He looked at the phone again, frantically searching for Lily’s phone, he didn’t have the experience to deal with this alone, this required professional help. The phone rang a few times before Lily finally picked it up.
“Yeah?” said Lily, her voice a little too excited. “He called, didn’t he?”
“Nope,” replied Remus, hoping she couldn’t hear the stupid happiness to his voice. “He texted and you need to hear this.”
FIC: “The Utterances of Storms” OMGCP, pre-graduation
Bittle, after laughing into his cup of tub juice for a good forty seconds, explains with only a little bit of a slur to his words that he’d need time—his mother would have to ship things and he’d need to bother someone named Katya for music.
Jack can’t hear what Ransom says in reply over the din of the party, but Bittle nods a couple of times and grins, cheeks flushed with alcohol.
It’s probably nothing.
Shitty texts him in the middle of World War II in Europe.
dude get to faber asap
It’s not just the lack of exclamation points that makes him leave class early—something he’s never done before, and the betrayed look that Professor Shahabuddin gives him as he’s sorry-ing his way past everyone else in his row tattoos itself on the part of the brain where the ocean of his guilt lives. It’s not just the knowledge that Shitty has his schedule memorized and would never dare interrupt if it weren’t important enough to rattle the cage of what he calls “The Zimmerbeast” that spurs Jack into running across campus.
To begin with, this is funny. So my university is undergoing some staffing changes right now, and as a result I was put under the guidance of a new academic advisor. So I met with him today to get ready for next semester, and it was great - he has a Master Shake figurine on his desk and we talked for like twenty minutes about the terrifying twenty-something foot tall crucifix that’s on campus. 😂
In other news, Blackbird editing is coming along nicely now that the semester is winding down both for myself and my students. I believe I’m going to keep to the Friday update schedule from now on, though I’m not 100% on that. I’ll keep y'all posted. At any rate, chapter 6 should be up sometime tomorrow afternoon/evening.
Thank you to everyone for the continued support! I’m hoping to catch up on putting my own reviews on various works as well, but just remember in the meantime that y'all are amazing and your writing sustains me through the endless bullshit-fest that is grad school 💜💜💜💜
….so finals are this week and I’ve kinda pushed this blog on the back burner this past weekend.
I have a request pertaining to the 24hour livestream that I’ll try to get up either later tonight or tomorrow morning but then after that idk guys.
I need to pack up my house then drive home by the end of the week then next week I’ll be catching up with friends before I drive across the country for my cousin’s graduation where I’ll be for 2 weeks. During those weeks I won’t be posting anything as I’ll be with family and being tourists in Maryland and D.C. THEN when I get back I start working again…
I need to figure out a new posting schedule that will work for the summer so bare with me. I enjoy writing but like friends, family and summer. I’ll figure it out but don’t be alarmed if I seem very inactive. I’m still here, it’s probs just because my brain hurts or because I just don’t have time…I have very needy friends who I haven’t seen in months.
IT’S HERE IT’S HERE
Omgggg finally!! Sorry it took so long to post guys ^ ^“ I’ve been kinda busy lately. But hey, IT’S FINALLY HERE OH MAN I’M SO EXCITED
Now, I will try (emphasis on try) to update this weekly. I’ve got the first couple of chapters ready to go, so be ready!
So, until next week, enjoy the prologue!
