Ahhh thank you again//// im kinda flattered you would ask me for tips;;;;; Well colouring is really VERSATILE and so many possibilities!!! So there’s no right or wrong way to colour//// Here is just some stuff on how I colour, hope it helps!!!
So, I’ve been getting recently tons of questions regarding my notes, and today I decided to make a post about it. If you find it useful make sure to reblog it!
First of all lets talk about supplies.
Should you invest or stick to your regular supplies?
We’re all different and we all have different needs and economy. In my case, I love stationery but my economy right now isn’t that high to buy all of the cute stationery in the world. I’m always trying to find dupes, or products that work similar to expensive ones (i’m also guilty of doing this with makeup oops). Here goes a list of the essentials I keep on my pencil pouch.
Pens in different colors - I like to give a color to every single element on my notes. Kinda like a color scheme. Blue = definitions , Black = general content. My favorite pens are the Pilot G2 Gel pens, they’re just a-m-a-z-i-n-g.
Fineliners - Fineliners are by far, one of my must haves. I used to use papermate color pens, but when I bought my first pack of Stabilo’s, It was love at first sight. The two most popular brands are Stabilo and Staedtler. Both of them have their pros and cons, so here i’ll leave you a video of a battle between them. I’ve never tried the Staedtler ones, so I wouldn’t know if they’re better or not. They’re really useful for mind maps, subtitles, decorating, titles, etc. You should totally save some money and buy ones!
Mechanical pencils - I stopped using regular pencils because sharpening them was just pissing me off. My favorite ones are by papermate.
Markers - this ones to me are pretty optional, but I decided to go for some Crayola ones to make some tabs or titles. I would say they’re useful, but only if you feel like buying them.
Highlighters - There are thousands of types, and thousands of brands. But it’s all about your needs. If the reason you want highlighters is to highlight on books, I would really recommend Sharpies and Stabilos. I have both of them, they work pretty well. And here we go with one of the most popular products around tumblr: mildliners. I have to admit it: they’re beautiful. They come in different colors and they’re just gorgeous! The only problem to me is the price. They don’t sell mildliners here in my country, so I have to order them from Amazon, and it’s just really expensive. Are they worth it? To me, yes. But if you don’t want to spend that much money on highlighters, you can also try the Pilot Frixion Light ones.Anyways, here’s avideocomparing many ofthese popular brands.
Now that you have your stationery set and ready, is time to get started with the hardest part : taking notes. One thing you need to know is, I take many of my notes in class time, which means I have to come up with a plan and a color scheme in a matter of seconds to get started when the teacher starts giving class.
My note taking process:
Set a color scheme - You can make it all pink, all blue, all warm colors, all violets, etc. I always try to alternate and use a different color for every topic, so you should try it out.
Different fonts - I use cursive for subtitles and my normal handwriting for the rest of the text. I always get asked: What did you do to get such a neat handwriting? My answer is: practice. I used to have a really horrible handwriting when I started high school, but once I discovered studyblrs, I began to copy some of the handwriting on pictures. I came up with my own font and i’m really happy with it! So dont be afraid to copy some handwriting you like, in the end you can always add your style to it.
Organize your information - Many times teachers ask you to make mind maps, diagrams, charts, etc. Choose the one that fits your information. I’m a huge fan of diagrams, but I also like to use charts a lot. Its all about your personal opinion. Most of the times teachers give me paper sheets with al the information on them, so the next thing I do is to highlight definitions. Once I’m done with definitions, I start highlighting with a different color the rest of the text.
Start writing - This is my last step, and its pretty simple. Once I have all of my information sorted and organized, I can get writing! I spend a lot of time doing it so I really commend you to find a good and relaxing playlist to have fun while doing it and a bottle of water.
Have you tried the Halo eyeshadow look yet? It’s so easy to do and look fabulous too. Can use dark eyeshadow instead of dark eyeliner pencil for same effect. Try using different colors on lid for nice alternative to usual gold or pink on lid.
I’ve read my share of Study Tip
blogs and one of the biggest piece of advice they give students is always “organize
your time”. WELL HOW THE HELL DO YOU DO THAT?! It doesn’t come naturally to
most people. I’ve practiced a lot over the years to be able to plan my study
time effectively. I decided to give you guys a little tutorial on how to
organize your time following a study time table.
OH! AND I made you guys a study time
table that you can print out FOR FREE(free downloads are located in “printables”)! You’re welcome and I love you too.
Using your time Table effectively:
Write in ALL activities; work,
class, travel time, appointments. Color them in using markers, & try to use
different colors for each responsibility.
After you’ve written in all of your
MUST DO responsibilities, NOW you can block out study time. Be realistic. Block
out times for eating/cooking/relaxing too. Try to set aside time EVERY DAY to
Think about it: WHEN DO YOU STUDY
BEST? Are you an early bird? A night owl? If you have the option, schedule
study time for when you study best.
Think about it: What
classes/subjects do you need to study the MOST? Personally, I don’t need to
devote as much time to art history as I need to devote to Chemistry. Each class
is different. Be honest with yourself! If you aren’t very successful with math,
schedule extra study time for math.
Try to block your study times to be
between 2-4 hours with 10 minute breaks every 50 minutes. Those breaks are
necessary! Even if you can only schedule study time for 1-2 hours, that’s okay!
Something Is better than nothing!
“BUT WHAT DO I STUDY?”, you ask. Look
at your class syllabi and take note of when your exams are, and what will be on
them. THEN make your study sheets according to what you are studying for each
Space out your studying! If your
exam is in 2 weeks, don’t plan to study just 3 days before. It’s better to
study an hour a day for 2 weeks, than 8 hours a day for 2 days. You will retain
information better, and you will feel less anxiety.
Detail what your study session will
be like. I made you 2 study organize pages, one is a time table and the other
is a to-do list. Use this to-do list to plan your study sessions in detail. Use
it to write down all your subjects and what
assignments/chapters/research/papers/projects you need to do for each one. Before
you plan think to yourself “What do I need to get done in this study session?”
Do you have to take notes, read, essay brainstorm, research, complete homework
Plan studying accordingly…If you
know you need the internet, don’t go to some place with shitty wifi. I’ve
actually done that so many times haha.
If you have smaller timeframes to
use (30 minutes- 1 hour) for example, in between classes, use those to read,
skim notes, look at lecture slides. Small things that don’t require tons of
material. It takes me 30 minutes to take the train to school and I usually use
it to read ahead before class!
ALWAYS remember to set aside some relax time. YOU WILL GO CRAZY if you don’t do this. My relax time is usually getting to bed early and watching a show (preferably star trek TNG with my husband) haha, whatever I’m a nerd.
I hope you guys find this helpful. Sometimes your workload can appear overwhelming, so I hope this helps you organize and prioritize!
