Your worth is not in numbers. It isn’t in test results, weight scales, IQ levels, or numbers on pay slips. Your worth is in your kindness, your happiness, your ability to make people laugh and your compassion. Be somebody who feels, striving for others to be happy alongside you, someone who cares about people. Put that idea of numerical value aside and remember you are human.

Ultimate Study Tips - Master Any Subject!

• Your objective is to UNDERSTAND the subject, not just to read the book. Don’t feel your work is done just because you read all the pages you were asked to. 

• Be modest. Train yourself to love correction. Don’t be disheartened by mistakes or bad grades, they are important for your progression.

• Make sure you understand the words you read. It’s a bad habit to skip over words with vague understanding. Use a dictionary. Each word is chosen for a reason. 

• Only use definite ideas in your argument. Have enough facts to support your essay thoroughly. 

• A proper method of study ALWAYS involves re-reading. 

• Memory is not a substitute for thought. That said, fundamental principles of subject should be frequently memorized. 

• Don’t try to solve a problem without knowing fully what the problem actually is. What is the problem? What is required to solve it? Would variations of problem affect result?

• When you read “from the above it is evident” stop reading. Ask yourself what is evident? If your conclusion matches then continue, if it doesn’t, re-read section. 

• Go beyond the books you read (this is important to get the highest grades) regard book as suggestive and not final. 

• When starting a new subject, pick an ELEMENTARY book. You need the core of the subject before you can expand and understand to an advanced level. 

• If you can, stick to studying one subject a day when revising. It’s easier on your mind. 

• Review work frequently. 

• DO NOT neglect physical exercise and recreational time.

• Generalise books. Gain a simple and precise conclusion along with all the main principles. That’s the important part. 

Sorry this is super long, but here are my tips for the most effective studying. I hope it helps someone! 

  • Motivation. Ha. Fuck motivation. Baby girl, you gotta do this without feeling like it. Baby boy, you have to get up every morning without 'motivation'. You think every person who is successful had 'motivation'? No darling. Motivation is an excuse. Get up, get out, and make a difference. Motivation is a feeling. What if you don't feel it? You just going to stand there and wait? Huh? While you're waiting for motivation, someone else is working towards your goal. It will pay off, trust and believe. Get off your ass and prove everybody else wrong.

casually rewriting notes in the lib, I’m surprisingly a lot less stressed than I thought I would be for this busy busy week. tomorrow I have a genetics exam, Tuesday I have a presentation and paper due (both of which are barely started…), and an exam on Thursday (that I’ve yet to even take notes on!!). I think I’ll be okay though; I just feel so great right now, honestly. I am so relaxed and can’t wait to get up and work out tomorrow! definitely an arm day 👍

Chipotle Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas are my favorite add-in for a lot of dishes. Use them as croutons on a soup or salad, a crunchy garnish on pasta, or a kick ass snack all by themselves.

The trick is evenly coat them, and then to roast them for longer than you think you should, making sure they’ve released all of their water and shrunk into a snack-sized, well, snack.

Serves 4-6


  • 2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and patted dry with paper towels
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder


  1. Toss the chickpeas with olive oil in a large mixing bowl, making sure they’re coated evenly.
  2. Add half of the salt and chipotle powder, toss to coat, then add the rest and toss again.
  3. Distribute chickpeas evenly on a baking sheet. You don’t want the sheet to be overcrowded, so cook in two batches if you need to.
  4. Roast chickpeas at 425, for 35-45 minutes, shaking the pan every 7-10 minutes, until crispy.

Note: If you want to remove the chickpea skins while drying them, go for it, but I found it was too much work for too little reward. Also, if you’re not a spice fan, this recipe is still great without the chipotle seasoning.
