for a lot of us, it seems nearly impossible to find a balance between our grades and our health. i’ve created a list of tips and resources for managing classwork as well as mental illness. i tried to be inclusive of depression and anxiety as well as other disorders like adhd and bipolar. (i’d like to be more inclusive of others, but i couldn’t find a lot of resources and wasn’t sure what would help aaaa)

please let me know if you have anything to add, and i hope this post can help you out in some way c:

while studying

  • create a routine, and do your best to stick to it. having a consistent schedule can be a struggle, especially when dealing with long days of class or difficulties with sleep. try something more open-ended and flexible if you can’t manage specific times. (studying for an hour in the morning and before bed vs studying at 8 am and 10 pm)
  • start with your favourite subject. there are a lot of suggestions on how to start a study session (and they usually conflict it seems), but i’ve found that this works best for me. your favourite subject may be easy or difficult, but by starting with it, you get in the groove of studying and won’t get burnt out as quickly, giving you more energy to do your other work.
  • don’t take on more than what you can handle. if you’re feeling motivated, great! get as much done as you can! but on the bad days, just do what you can. there are times where it seems nearly impossible to get anything done, but still try to make the most out of each day and do what you’re able to so you don’t fall far behind. do what you can, when you can. don’t overwork yourself so much.

during class

  • take notes. for me, the easiest way to lose track during a class is if i don’t write or doodle. even if the material doesn’t seem important, write it down! it may be useful later, and it’ll keep your mind from wandering during lecture. (that being said, don’t always write things exactly as the teacher says; putting it into your own words can make it easier to remember and understand)
  • record lecture audio. if you can’t copy everything down in time, or if for whatever reason you need to know something verbatim, then you’ll have something to listen to again later.
  • take pics of what the instructor writes on the board. similar to the above tip, you can refer back to the pictures you took. just don’t forget about them! write yourself a note or make an alarm on your phone to remind you that there’s more material to review. don’t be the kid who takes pictures during the whole lecture but never writes anything, that kid’s obnoxious and gets bad grades
  • stay focused. i fidget a lot with my hands and feet, especially during a long lecture or study session. i find that keeping my hand on my pen/pencil is the simplest way to keep my mind on track, but fidget toys may help you as well. most teachers and students are fine with it as long as it’s not too disruptive.

at home

  • keep track of medication. ngl i am suuuper forgetful when it comes to medication :’) if you’re forgetful too, leave yourself as many reminders as you can. set alarms, write notes, or have someone else keep you accountable if you’re living with a parent or roommate. having routine helps here as well, especially if you take meds multiple times a day.
  • communicate regularly with your doctor. if you’re living away from home, or just a busy student, it can be particularly difficult to make appointments. but you should still make an effort to email your doctor, therapist, etc. at least once a month, and more often if you’re currently changing or adjusting medications.
  • “catching up” on sleep is a myth. depriving yourself of sleep during the week and then sleeping in on the weekends won’t fix your sleep schedule, sadly. keep it consistent if you can. even if you’re staying up late and sleeping in, try to get at least 7-8 hours. whether it’s 12-8 am or 2-10 am, it’s a reasonable amount for getting through the day. sleeping too little can leave you tired and grumpy in the morning, but sleeping too much can also leave you groggy, sluggish, and unproductive for the rest of the day.
  • eat something healthy. okay, no one can eat healthy all the time, and i don’t expect you to. i certainly don’t expect myself to lol. but we can still find a healthy snack or meal to make a part of our lives. sometimes fruit is the best comfort food tbh. here are a few simple snacks that you could try, for studying or for whatever else. i personally enjoy anything with berries, especially yogurt parfait or oatmeal.
  • have a support system. it helps so much to have someone you can talk to when you’re not feeling well or in need of encouragement. it can be a friend, a parent, a sibling, your significant other, or even other members of the studyblr community! (if you don’t have anyone to talk to, please talk to me!! i am here for you my friendo)

other stuff

  • community college by @universi-tea - if you’re worried about moving into dorms or away from home (or are simply unable to), i strongly encourage you to try out community college. it’s made schooling much more enjoyable and accessible for me and i think everyone should give it a chance. plus it’s waaay cheaper.
    • also, most (if not all) U.S. schools have a disability services department; this applies to both physical and mental illnesses. talking to them for the first time can be nerve-wracking, but in the long run it’s completely worth it. teachers and staff want to help you! but you have to help yourself a lil bit too. accommodations may include leniency about attendance and deadlines, or they may let you take exams on earlier or later dates with fewer students present. the flexibility with deadlines has saved my ass more than once tbh
  • things to do when things don’t feel right by @affectionsuggestions - sometimes it’s okay to just do small things, and sometimes it’s okay to not do anything at all.
  • ways to start feeling again by @urbanthropologie - similar to above, but with a focus on mindfulness (helps with anxiety, dissociation, etc)
  • my mental illness tag - this has many other resources that are otherwise not listed in this post.
  • my printables tag! - printables are great for when you’re too tired or not sure how to write things out completely by hand. there are some planners and calendars as well as gratitude logs, habit trackers, etc.
  • i have tons of other tags listed here if you need anything more specific :>

thank you for reading! i hope you found some of these tips helpful. i believe in you!!

DACA and what it means to me

*disclaimer when I was typing this I was a crying mess it might not make sense. It might also not flow together and just sound like a bunch of random thought but this is my story as a DACA recipient.

I am a DACA recipient. I was brought to the U.S. when I was a year and a half old. I’m not sure if I was brought here illegally or legally and then overstayed my visa. I never asked my parents about it. Hell I didn’t even know I was an illegal immigrant until I asked my parents why we never went to visit our family in Mexico and my we never left the state or hell even the county.

I lived in constant fear of being deported when I found out I was an illegal immigrant. The city that I grew up in had ICE raids almost every day for a couple of years. And then they stopped.

It was hard being a teenager and having to hide this huge secret that you never asked for. It’s difficult having to explain to your friends why at the age of 16 and 17 you don’t have your drivers license and weren’t going to get it any time soon. It was also hard to explain to them why you would turn down acceptances to so great universities because you don’t qualify for FAFSA or any kind of financial aid. Why you are going to a community college when you had a great GPA and good SAT/ACT scores. Why you didn’t apply for any scholarships because the all require you to be a U.S. citizen.

Living in constant fear because now you are going to lose the only thing that made you feel safe. The one thing that allowed you to have a good paying job. The reason why you don’t have to pay out of state tuition at school.

The U.S. has been my home for 19 years. English is my primary language it might have not been the first one I learned but it’s the one I speak the best and the one I am most comfortable with. To even think about going to Mexico makes me nervous. What am I going to do there?

Teens and adult like me didn’t ask to be in this position. Us DACA recipients are either attending school or have a job. We pay our taxes and every time we renew our permits we have to go through another background check. We are just people who want to make a decent living and make a difference in this country a country that has been out home for as long as most of us can remember. I mean how may 20 year olds do you know that have already have had to have 3 backgrounds check just to prove that they deserve to be able to have a decent job and further their education.

Less then a month ago, I went to my lawyer to renew my DACA. I paid almost a grand for both my legal fees and application fees. Money that I won’t get back if DACA get terminated. And now I have to wait and hear what Trumps official decision on DACA but I’m sure we all know that he’s going to end it. And with that end my dreams of ever being able to finish my education.

So please show some compassion and call your local senator and congressman. Telling not to end DACA and show your support to people like me who just want to live a normal life with out fear of being deported to a country that is foreign to them.

Good Shot

Clint x Reader

The sirens blared into your ears, the building rumbled underneath you. A panic flash back of the hot desert, the bullets spraying passed you, grabbed a hold of you. Collapsing on the ground, you bury your head into your bloodied knees. People were screaming and running around you, it all felt imploding until everything went silent. Your heartbeat was loud and rapid, tears fell down your face. It was inescapable. War was everywhere you went, tucked into every street corner.

“Ma’am,” a soft voice broke through the silence. A steady hand touched your shoulder, causing your hands to grip tighter against your head. Your body trembled violently, lips quivered as a little blood spilled from your mouth.

“Are you hurt? Let’s get you the hell out of here,” the man’s voice was calm and collective as he attempted to reach for your hand.

“Leave me alone,” you cried out.

7th grade history class memories📚🇺🇸

Before I tell the story there’s a system in our school that involves colours

Blue student- very good kid
Green student- good kid
Yellow student-needs a little work kid
Red student- gOD AWFUL KIDDO

Also in our school we do a thing called “morning salute” which is basically announcements with the u.s pledge and our school pledge

So our principal was ragging on the eighth grade (my grade) about how were god awful children and is ashamed of us and stuff.


So me being the green student I am sat in my little seat and watched as kids filed our auditorium

When they were done leaving

There were only like thirty of us left


The principal then quietly stated

“Y'all are the only ones who will be aloud to go to the end of the year field trip”



so theres this FUCKING AMAZING AND ODDLY ACCURATE movie that was released in 2016.“Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life”. It deals with some insane shit many middle schoolers go through. i watched as a “reward activity” on the last day of 8th grade. it got cheers, sobs, and all around agreement THAT EVERY U.S. SCHOOL OFFICIAL NEEDS TO WATCH IT. It deals with school administration’s useless fucking rules and dress codes that suffocate children’s creativity and individuality. It shows what a principal will do, has done, and can do, to get perfect scores. Perfect scores that hinder a child. Perfect scores that turn us into mindless rule following robots. It shows the impacts of standard tests, both on teachers who agree with them, those that don’t, and the children being turned into robots from them. It shows how much a teacher that actually takes the time to understand and involve their kids can alter a kid’s life. IT ALSO HAS A PLOT ALONG WITH IT FOR A SHITTY FATHER, A MOTHER STANDING UP TO SAID FATHER, THE LOSS OF A TEEN DUE TO CANCER, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY; Rules Aren’t For Everyone.

so yea… even if you have no relation to the majorly flawed U.S. School system, watch it. It’s from a kid’s perspective that actually is in the system and is so accurate in it’s own goofy way. Especially parents and teachers- y'all in for an eye opener.

“This August I’ll be transferring to a U.S. high school. I’m very interested in astronomy and computer science, but my current school doesn’t even have a club or really any classes for them. So I looked into it a bit and sent in my application to a school in the U.S.” 
“How did you end up getting interested in those fields?”
“My father is a documentary director and a devout Christian. We didn’t really mesh well, since I don’t believe in religion. But we could pass one hour, two hours, and many more without realizing when we talked about astronomy. My father would look at the sky and speak about religious ideas, and I, with my strong inclination to believe only what could be seen, would talk a bit more scientifically. At any rate, I grew more interested and ended up knowing more after we talked. Whatever my father talked to me about, I would look into more and take an interest in it.”
“It seems astronomy was what connected you two.”
“Yes. I ended up growing closer with my father. There wasn’t really anyone around that I could talk with about my career for two hours. My family thought that I should figure out my path for myself and so there wasn’t anyone who asked me about it. But my father was the sole person who asked me, ‘What do you want to become?’”

“이번 8월에 미국에 있는 고등학교로 전학을 가게 됐어요. 전 천문학이랑 컴퓨터 과학에 관심이 많은데, 지금 학교에서는 클럽동아리나 수업이 전혀 없거든요. 그래서 좀 알아보고 미국에 있는 학교에 지원서를 넣었어요.”
“그 쪽 분야는 어떤 계기로 관심을 갖게 된 거예요? “
“아버지께서 다큐멘터리 PD면서 독실한 기독교인이세요. 그래서 저하곤 평소에 잘 안 맞았거든요, 저는 무교라서. 그런데 둘이서 한 시간, 두 시간 시간 가는 줄 모르게 이야기 할 수 있었던 소재가 바로 천문학이었어요. 그래서 아버지는 하늘을 보고 자신의 종교적인 사상을 이야기 했고, 저는 보이는 것만 믿는 성향이 강해서 좀 더 과학적인 이야기를 했는데, 어쨌든 둘이서 이야기를 하다가 더 관심을 갖고 알게 된 거죠. 아버지가 어떤 이야기를 해주시면 거기에 대해서 더 알아보면서 관심을 가졌어요.”
“천문학이 두 분의 매개체가 된 거네요?”
“네. 아버지랑 좀 더 가까워지게 됐어요. 제 주변에서 진로에 대해서 두 시간 정도를 이야기할 사람이 별로 없었거든요. 가족들이 제 진로는 제가 알아서 할거라 생각해서 물어봐주는 사람이 없었어요. 그런데 유일하게 아버지가 저에게 ‘뭐가 되고 싶냐'고 물어봐 주셨죠.”

Profile of School Shooters and Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold

In May 2002, the Secret Service published a report that examined 37 U.S. school shootings. They had the following findings:

  • Incidents of targeted violence at school were rarely sudden, impulsive acts. [In the case of Columbine, the massacre was planned approximately a year before. Both Eric and Dylan had written about it in each other’s journals by May 1998.]
  • Prior to most incidents, other people knew about the attacker’s idea and/or plan to attack. [On a few occasions, according to some acquaintances and co-workers, they both had talked about bombing their school.]
  • Most attackers did not threaten their targets directly prior to advancing the attack. [There is not any evidence that suggests that Eric and Dylan threatened one of their victims. The only incidence that occurred was that some acquaintances of Eric and Dylan had some trouble with Isaiah Shoels.]
  • There is no accurate or useful profile of students who engaged in targeted school violence. [Not really.]
  • Most attackers engaged in some behavior prior to the incident that caused others concern or indicated a need for help. [Eric and Dylan did talk about bombing their school, Eric had told Chris Morris that it would be cool to kill jocks, Dylan wrote his gruesome creative writing story, both had drawn gruesome, dead like figures, and of course, both had purchased guns through Robyn Anderson. The boxes that Eric ticked out in his Diversion Files also suggested that he needed serious help.]
  • Most attackers had difficulty coping with significant losses or personal failures. Moreover, many had considered or attempted suicide. [Eric and Dylan had problems overcoming failures or perceived failures, and Eric thought of suicide when he was angry, while Dylan thought of suicide very often.]
  • Many attackers felt bullied, persecuted, or injured by others prior to the attack. [In Eric’s and Dylan’s case, they were bullied and injured prior to the attack.]
  • Most attackers had access to and had used weapons prior to the attack. [Eric and Dylan used the guns that they purchased to film the Rampart Range video.]
  • In many cases, other students were involved in some capacity. [Robyn Anderson was involved.]
  • Despite prompt law enforcement responses, most shooting incidents were stopped by means other than law enforcement intervention. [In the case of Columbine, Eric and Dylan killed themselves.]

“I listen attentively to my teachers, and I tend to be deeply influenced by what they say. But when I told the teachers who usually said good job to me that I wanted to apply to a U.S. high school, they said it wouldn’t work. They said that the Korean and American education systems were too different, so they wouldn’t really choose me when there are kids who learned that way all along. I was upset, and I wondered if they were saying those things because they’d already seen my limits. So I was afraid even while I was asking for recommendation letters. No matter how well they might write, in the end, it will be painted with a certain nuance. I became afraid that, if the teacher had even the slightest doubt about my path, it might come out in the writing.”
“Is there also a person who helped you?”
“The person who helped me was also a teacher. This teacher supported me from the very beginning. I let all my worries flood out and said, ‘I don’t know how many schools I should apply to.’ The others said it wouldn’t work, but my teacher told me, ‘No matter how many you apply to, you’ll get all of them.’”

“전 선생님들을 잘 따르고, 선생님들 말에 영향을 많이 받는 편이에요. 그런데 평소에 저한테 잘한다고 해주던 선생님들이, 미국 고등학교에 입학원서를 넣고 싶다고 했더니 안 된다고 말씀하시더라고요. 한국의 교육방식과 미국의 교육방식은 너무 다르고, 그대로 배워왔던 애들이 있는데 굳이 저를 뽑으려하겠냐고 하셨어요. 속상하기도 했고, 제 한계를 벌써 보셔서 그러시나 하는 생각도 들었어요. 그러니까 추천서를 부탁드리면서도 두려웠어요. 아무리 잘 적어주시더라도 결국 쓰는 사람의 말의 뉘앙스가 묻어나잖아요. 그 선생님이 조금이라도 제 진로에 대해 의문이 든다면 그게 글에서 드러나지는 않을까 싶어서 조마조마하게 되더라고요.”
“힘이 되었던 사람도 있나요?”
“힘이 되었던 분도 선생님이었어요. 처음부터 저를 응원해주신 선생님이요. 제가 '몇 개의 학교에 지원을 해야 될 지 잘 모르겠어요'라고 한 분께 고민을 털어놨더니 '너는 몇개를 지원해도 다 붙을 거야'라고 말씀해주셨어요. 다들 안 될 거라고 하셨는데…”

Logic of FAFSA / US College Financial Aid
  • Me: Okay but I'm not a dependent, my parents haven't claimed me in two years. I claimed myself. I am independent. Why do I need to turn in my parental information or the form saying they don't support me and I don't get shit?
  • FAFSA: Oh that! It's because you're not 24 or married. So you're not an independent.
  • Me: But I pay my own bills. I live separately from my parents. They don't give me anything.
  • FAFSA: Nope. Not an independent. You can give us their tax info and see if you could qualify for more.
  • Me: Okay here it is.
  • FAFSA: Oh...No you don't qualify for any more. Sorry. But hey! Two more years and you'll be independent.

P.S. I really want to minor in French or Arabic in uni, but I’ve been having difficulty with practicing/retaining (I took three year of HS French) what I learn. If you have any tips please message! 

anonymous asked:

so i'm very confused if islam has "feminist" roots or not. i've seen posts saying arab women had rights way before islam (owning businesses,being warriors something like that) but I've also seen many arguemnets that islam was unique in what rights it gave to women (right to divorce). i'm very confused because what i was taught in (my u.s. mostly christian) schools was the former. did the quran not give women the right to divorce and other things they didn't have before?

It doesn’t have feminist roots because a female slave couldn’t refuse her master AND the only way she could be freed was if her master decided on it or she had his child. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a man can marry four women but a woman can only marry one man. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because for a man divorces his wife he just needs to say “Talaq” three times for ANY reason whilst a woman must have a valid reason (if the reason is not absolutely necessary Muhammad has stated that the fragrance of Paradise will be forbidden to her) to divorce her husband which then needs to be approved by a judge. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a woman can not be a leader. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a woman can not leave her house without her husband’s permission. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a woman can not refuse her husband’s request for sex. 
It doesn’t  have feminist roots because a woman can not wear what she wants. 

I could literally go on forever. 

Look at the power the Greek women, the Spartan women, the Egyptian women even the Quraish (the people who lived in Makkah at Muhammad’s time ) women had prior to Islam.

So not Islam doesn’t have feminist roots nor was Muhammad a feminist.
