Things I Wish I Knew My Freshman Year of Uni

Academic Tips

“You are responsible for your own learning.”

1. Always do your work when you get it and don’t wait until the last minute. Waiting until the last minute to get work done will sometimes allow you to still get things done by their due date but it leaves little room for studying and reviewing between then and in the end will hurt you on exams. 

2. Work alone. The best way to learn new material is to do it on your own and struggle through and figure it out ON YOUR OWN. I wish someone had told me this because I really struggled to catch up in classes this past semester because I would do my homework with friends instead of learning how to do things on my own and it hurt me a lot on exams. 

3. Find friends you can study with.You want to be able to be productive if you choose to do a study session. Studying with friends might be okay if you work well together but chances are you’ll get distracted. Find people you work well with to study because you tend to learn more that way. For me, that was people I met in class and at office hours.

4. Please oh, please use office hours This is such a big one that freshman don’t use until the last minute. These are your best bet for getting questions answered if you didn’t understand something in lecture, on your homework, etc. Plus, getting to know your prof is very important because they tend to be more helpful if they see you are working hard in their class and they give good letters of recommendation if you make a good impression on them. If you can’t make their office hours, email them or set up an appointment. It’s very important to have good communication. 

5. Sit in the front and ask questions Be the nerd of the lecture by sitting in the front and don’t be afraid to ask a question. However, if its a question that requires a lengthy answer, save it for office hours so you don’t the lecture behind schedule. 

6. BUY AND READ THE DARN TEXTBOOK So many people tell you not to buy the textbook if you don’t truly need it for assignments but that is so wrong. You will always need the textbook if it is in the syllabus. Period. Read the chapters BEFORE lecture and review it afterward if material still doesn’t make sense. You will learn so much more and remember so much more in a faster time period than if you don’t read it at all. The book is also extremely important for covering details that won’t be covered in lecture.

Social Life 

1. Meet new and DIFFERENT people instead of people like yourself. These people will show you so many cool new things that you’ll never experience otherwise. Meeting new and different people can be challenging and uncomfortable at first if you’re shy like me but it will make your college experience much more worth it. 

 2. Join clubs but not too many. Take part in activities and clubs that you enjoy but be careful not to overload yourself. Freshman year you should start off by just trying a few clubs here and there just to see what you like before committing to a lot of anything.

3. Don’t be afraid to say no to alcohol, drugs, and even hanging out. College students say “You do you” and they really mean it. You don’t have to feel pressured to do anything you don’t want to do and no one will judge you for that. If you find “friends” who do judge you, make some new friends. Also, remember that school comes first so if you have a large project to do and your friends want to go out, its ok to say no. Your friends should understand that in college, you really need to get stuff done and that schedule can be different than theirs.

 4. Be okay with being alone but completely surrounded by people. You are almost guaranteed to different schedules than your friends so you’ll learn that you’ll often be eating or doing school work alone. This is perfectly normal! Learn to like it because it’s nice to do things on your own. You may feel lonely sometimes but you’re also always surrounded by people. It’s hard to find actual privacy in college especially when you live in the dorms and share a room with a roommate. It will be strange at first but you’ll find the right balance of being along and being with people over time. 

Roommates and Dorms 

1. “A clean room is a clean mind.” Keeping a clean room will help you to study because you’ll be able to easily find everything you need instead of digging through piles of clothes and other belongings. Dorm rooms are also very small so putting things in their rightful storage places is essential for keeping a tidy room.

2. Study outside of your room as much as you can. If you’re like me, you can distract yourself easily especially when you don’t want to do something (like study). By getting the majority of your work done in the library or somewhere else on campus other than your room, you have less options to distract yourself whereas in your room, you have all your stuff to pick up and lose hours of study time with. 

3. Be straightforward with your roommate. If your roommate is doing something that bothers you, tell them clearly right away (politely). Otherwise, they’ll never know and continue to do what is bothering you. In order to avoid arguments, tell them right away very nicely and they should stop. It might be their room too, but you need to make sure that you’re happy as well. 

I hope this was helpful. This is only SOME of the tips I could think of for right now but I have tons more tips and advice that I love to share. If you have any questions about these tips or want to know more, feel free to ask.

Doing last minute work

So you procastinated waaaay to much and you now have to do all your work in few hours. It’s okay. We’ve all being there. We all procastinate and probably will procastinate all our life. It’s part of human nature.

That doesn’t mean procastinating is okay. It causes unnecessary stress we could perfectly avoid by sticking to organisation plans. Procastination is not extra free time. It’s wasted time. Because let’s be honest, it’s not like we are writing Shakeaspere instead of doing calculus homework.

Anyways, we procastinated and forgot we had stuff to do. So now, what? How am I going to be able to do this? Don’t worry guys, I got you. This advices are from a master in procastination, aka me :)

  • Quick organisation. Take 10 minutes to organise and sort out everything you have to do. Start by the things that are due the next day and are harder to do. Don’t start an essay for next week if you have an assingment due tomorrow.
  • Be effective. Do what you are supposed to do. Don’t wonder arround trying to make your notes look pretty, or adding a beautiful cover page to your project. You don’t have the time. Stick to what you have to do and add the extra things when you have the time.
  • Take breaks. Not very long ones, but five ten minutes each half an hour is pretty reasonable. If you do all your work load without taking deep breaths in between, your study will not be as accurate as you wish it to be. But be careful, taking a break is an easy way to fall into procastination again.
  • And last, DO NOT PANIC. Panic is not going to help you. Take a deep breath and think about all the things you CAN do, not the things you won’t be able to do. Everything can be fixed, and you are going to make it through this school year with amazing grades and feeling super proud of yourself. WE CAN DO THIS GUYS.

ok y’all ep 4 had me shook as a kanamari shipper and now i think i’m signed tf up as a tru shipper so obviously i had to dig for any bit of canon that i could find. so after a bit of research i have some (COMPLETELY CANON) receipts on these two that I think solidifies them as a stable ship

1. Mari, if she were the principal (which she is the director lmao) would make Kanan her vice, and even after promoting Dia, Kanan would still be her second in command

After all, the Mari today is the ruler of this school!
Okay for now, I’ll act as the principal, Kanan is the vice-principal, and then— Dia is the curriculum coordinator♡
Ah, if that’s not okay, that’s fine~, hmm let’s see, then I’ll promote Dia to vice-principal, Kanan can be the principal— I’ll be the board chairman♪ Fufu, the globe-trotting jet-setter, enigmatic super board chairman!!

2. For the 1st center election, Mari admitted that voting for Kanan was the reason why she didn’t win

Hi everyone, did you enjoy voting? Thank you for all the support♡ After reflecting about it, I made everyone mad by voting for Kanan-chan who always took care of me~♡ What a mistake, next time I’ll follow the rules properly♪

3. Kanan thought Mari looked cool while riding horses on the beach and didn’t pay attention to the gossip/rumors ppl were spreading about new blonde foreign rich girl

Everyone’s been gossiping about Mari being rich and beautiful, saying this and that but— I don’t pay heed to any of that.
It was just, when I saw the figure of Mari on one of her occasional horse-riding sessions on the island— Somehow I felt she looked a bit good.
Just a bit— cool♡
My hobby is diving, and Mari’s is horse-riding, and in truth— I’m certain these have absolutely no relation to being idols, but right now, that’s what the two of us are and that really gives me a mysterious feeling.

4. Kanan’s grandfather is Mari approved

You live alone with your grandfather, but are you on good terms with him?
Asked by 紫鮫さん @Twitter

Yep, we’re good friends~! My grandfather is a bit of an oddball, but he’s extremely knowledgeable about things like the sea and the weather, and he’s unexpectedly small so he’s quite popular. Ah, and, he’s well-liked by Mari and You too (lol).

Around the Sims 3 | Chair-Desk

You have no idea how long I’ve been working on this. I might have started two or three years ago, but I couldn’t get it working (the bad news is that it STILL doesn’t work properly). Every couples of months, I dig  it again from my “unachieved projects”, was spending hours, days, at trying various things without success. For all these years, I’ve tried to use a picnic table as base, but no matter what I could do (rename the bone for plate as the bone for homework, for example), I never managed to make a Sim doing his homework on these desks, and it’s all I wanted to do.
So, last time I tried, I gave up. Instead of using a picnic table, I made the chair-desk from a chair, and it needs an invisible desk to be used. So, Sims can do their homework there, use a scribbling pad or a computer. Yeah.
But the bad side is that Sims clip into their desk when they move from the chair, of course.
