28. do you like the cold? what are your favourite winter activities?

i like cold more than i like hot. my favourite winter activity is ice skating. it is in fact how i broke my arm. i also enjoy reading inside while there’s a heavy snowfall. but since the climate is changing there hasn’t been that much snow.

Only a few days late, but now I’m finally finishing this challenge! Maybe not that much of an accomplishment but doing things for a prolonged time and actually finishing them isn’t really my strong suit.

Day 28: do you like the cold? what are your favourite winter activities?

NO, I DO NOT like the cold. I like it when I can sit inside and be warm and everything outside is cold, but I absolutely hate it when I need to do things and it’s cold while doing them. I know I just need to toughen up but in general I like to be WARM I like knitwear and sweaters tho

Day 29: do you have any hobbies?

Yes! I like gaming and reading basically anything. I’m also learning Turkish at the moment which could be called a hobby. When I feel like it I also like to draw a bit but that’s like really simple drawing, I don’t make art or anything

Day 30: how do you plan for the next month? anything fun happening in February?

I don’t have a strict planning yet, but since last Monday I’m working on my bachelors research for the whole of February until half March! The past two days have been really fun and I’ve learned a lot. I’ll try to post some updates of it as well every once in a while. And! At the end of February my friends and I are gonna start a D&D campaign which I’m really looking forward to.

Day 31:  reflect on how it went & what could have gone better. have you improved anything about yourself this month?

January flew by so fast. I think it went pretty okay, I caught up on a lot of work which was really good of me. I do think things were a bit chaotic as usual and that I sometimes lacked structure. I’m gonna try to improve that this month. I’m not really sure whether I improved something about myself this month though.

Day 23:  if you could travel anywhere, regardless of money or other limitations, where would you go? what would you do?

I would love to see the Petra. This questions is kinda hard, there are so many amazing places to visit, I can’t really make a comprehensive list :^)

Day 24: what’s on your desk? do you function best in a tidy or a messy space?

I got actually two desks, one where I do most of the studying with my laptop, a lamp, some stationary with pens etc. and the other is more of a messy desk (tbh they’re both messy) which more loose stuff and also a thing to store all my paper ware (idk what it’s called)

Day 25: what’s your go-to study method? are there cases in which you wouldn’t use it?

Really depends on the type of course. Courses which are more based on learning facts, I prefer to make flash cards. Courses which are more practice oriented require more exercise. In both cases, I rewrite my notes as well.

Day 26: what’s the hardest decision you’ve ever had to make?

Damn boi, what a hard question. I’m not really sure. Study-wise I guess what to study but personal wise probably something family related. We had some major family issues in the past (which still resonate to now) which required some difficult decision-making.

Day 27: study in groups or study alone?

Never really tried studying in groups. It’s always way to difficult to adjust schedules and to find time to study together with my friends so most of the time I study alone.


Alright I think I’m able to finish this challenge tomorrow, only three days late :^)

21. can you play any instruments? how long have you been playing?

i know how to play the recorder. i played that all through middle school. then we had to learn to play the acoustic guitar. played that for another 2 years. and now im learning to play the bass. i got it last year.

Okay so I know it is February already, but I’ve set my mind on finishing this challenge even though its late.

Day 18: food while studying?

Hmm, I like chocolate, nuts, yoghurt as well. I don’t really have a go-to study snack but these ones always do well.

Day 19: show us your planning system!

Ah this is probably terrible, but I don’t really have a planning system. Normally, my courses only last for 3 weeks so it’s just for 3 weeks only 1 course that you are just constantly emerging yourself in. I do make sure that a week before the exam, I’ll start studying and divide the lectures into 7 days.

Day 20: favourite hot drink

I’m a simple woman, tea is my favourite hot drink, especially green tea. 

Day 21: can you play any instruments? how long have you been playing?

No I cannot :^) I never learned to play an instrument.

Day 22: do you use colour-coding? explain your system!

I don’t really use colour-coding for my studying, but I do use it for google calendar. Purple is for casual, everyday appointments, green is uni schedule (including exams), red is voluntary work 1 and yellow for voluntary work 2and blue is for anything related to finance

31.01.20 | and the challenge came to an end

Alright we all know I didn’t make this post on the 31st of January but around the end February 1st but let’s just not make a big deal out of it.

Say goodbye to the challenge and semi-consistent posting and say hello to the picture from a few days ago when I kind-of tried to study mechanics.

Thank you @stu-dna for putting together another monthly challenge! I hope to see more of them in the future ❤️

It’s time for the last prompt!

reflect on how it went and what could have gone better. have you improved anything about yourself this month?

Well I’ve definitely improved on my… who am I trying to fool? I’m still the same binge-eating, lazy and definitely not working mess I’ve been when I started the challenge. I’m still barely passing my classes.

All I could’ve kind-of keep up with was the studyblr challenge that I still had to catch up on like five times in four weeks 😅

I keep getting distracted, doing something else, lying in bed all day doing nothing or I comfort myself with food to a point where I feel like throwing up.

But I think I’ve realised a few things about myself and I have a vague idea of what to do to help me with all the shitty things I get myself into.

And with that, see you all on a non-challenge post sometime in the future!

20. favourite hot drink? recipe pls ;)

i drink coffee either black with 2 sugars or flat white.

heres how i make it:

1. boil water. i use an electric kettle.

2. fill your french press with coffee powder? i put 6 teaspoons of it bc i usually drink more than one cup.

3. fill the press with the boiling water.

4. stir it with sth that’s not made of metal. i use a chopstick.

5. put the top back on the press.

6. wait for 4-5 min

7. press down the filter slowly. otherwise the coffee will burst out due to the pressure.

8. fill your fave mug with the coffee but leave some room for milk if you are feeling a flat white.

9. before u add milk tho! add sugar bc then it will dissolve better. sugar is not a necessity but i sometimes like it sweet.

10. stir

11. add milk. i drink regular milk bc im poor

12. drink the coffee super fast OR forget u made it

@stu-dna‘s january study challenge

i know i’m a day late but let’s just finish this… happy february! (◍•ᴗ•◍)♡ ✧*。

day 31: reflect on how january went & what could have gone better. have you improved anything about yourself during the month?

to be honest, january felt like every other month. maybe because i was still in the same class and studying the same thing and didn’t have much change to my life in general.

what could have been better was my patience and determination. many people really got onto my nerves last month and there were times when i really couldn’t take it anymore. i was also less determined to pursue my habits because i always used the excuse that “i can still do it tomorrow”, but then fail to do it the next day.

while there were downs, there were ups in january too. my classmates and i have bonded really well together. i also feel that i’ve been able to cope with failure better and try to improve myself from there. i read a lot (of books and news articles!) this month and i’m very happy about that.

january study challenge day 30 | how do you plan for the next month? anything fun happening in february?

next month i’m seeing 2 of my favourite bands for the first time and i turn 16 so i’ll do some fun things for that, but i have mocks again after half term so it probably won’t be that great other than those few days :(

day 31 | reflect on how it went & what could have gone better. have you improved anything about yourself this month?

i’ve done what i wanted to do this month in terms of academic things and even though i’ve had a pretty uneventful month i definitely feel like my outlook on things has changed since the start of january

January Study Challenge | day 31: reflect on how it went & what could have gone better. have you improved anything about yourself this month?

This month has been pretty good, overall. I feel like I’ve hit the ground running with the start of the spring semester; in the week-and-a-bit that I’ve been on campus I’ve kept up with most of the habits I wanted to start, although eating healthy hasn’t been going quite as well as I’d hoped. I’ve definitely been feeling more stressed out now I’m back at school, but also really happy, so I’m hoping that that continues and I don’t get burned out by midterms.

Day 31: reflect on how it went & what could have gone better. have you improved anything about yourself this month?

January went pretty well though I have been very tired with the immense workload + extracurriculars - next month will be a lot more chilled out for me, which I am grateful for.

In terms of improvements, while I haven’t put away my phone exactly when I said I would or gone to bed on time most days, it is a start. I’ve def improved on the crying less because I’ve learned to stop fixating on what was making me upset/stressed, and either work it out or shelve it for later, depending on its urgency. Overall, I have made some progress on the majority of my goals, which I am really happy about.

Thank you to @stu-dna for this study challenge! It’s been a lot of fun!

Looking forward to next month - may February treat us well!✨

@stu-dna January study challenge

31. reflect on how it went & what could have gone better. have you improved anything about yourself this month?

January was…okay. Busy and stressful, I guess. Junior year is hard, especially since I’m in the crunch stage for recital preparations. There are bits that were really not fun, but also lots that was awesome. I spent some really good time with some good friends, and got closer to a few of them. I made some big life decisions, and I feel a lot better about myself and (slightly) less stressed out in general just because my goals and life outlook also changed as a result of said life decisions.

Looking at the habits I wanted to change this month, I bombed most of them overall. I most definitely was NOT up on time every day this month…but I was up a higher percentage of days than I used to be. That’s progress, and I’m trying to be proud of it because it was very hard and it’s something I’m still working on. My German studies on Duolingo have gone down the drain because I simply don’t have the time for it with everything else going on, but that’s okay because that’s my “fun” studying during breaks or if I’m bored. 

I’m proud because I’ve stuck to my most important goal - taking care of my own mental health by saying NO to things. I’m bad at saying no - I hate letting people down, and I hate feeling like I missed opportunities. In the past week and a half, I’ve turned down two accompanying opportunities with two of my favorite music friends, which was sucky in the moment but enables me to do what I’m already doing (which is a lot) that much better without breaking down.

Day 30: how do you plan for the next month? anything fun happening in february?

I mark out holidays and events on my wall calendar for the next month and a to-do list. I have some of my second set of mocks in February and a Sixth Form entrance exam but I’m going to Malta with my family for half term so that will be fun.

Have a good evening!

January Study Challenge | day 30: how do you plan for the next month? anything fun happening in February?

My monthly planner spread includes things happening on specific dates, and things that I generally need to get done that month. I also do a monthly gratitude log and habit&sleep trackers. 
February so far has the show I’m working on opening on the 1st, which is exciting, and then it’ll be over and I’ll have my evenings free again, which is also exciting lmao

@stu-dna January study challenge 

20. how do you plan for the next month? anything fun happening in february?

I have out-of-the-daily-calendar-ordinary events put in my monthly planner page. I’ll do each week at a time since stuff changes last-minute all the time.

Anything fun happening in February? Hopefully not another mental or physical breakdown. The past two years in February, I’ve had really rough breakdowns - I seriously considered dropping out of school after the one freshman year, and the one sophomore year just happened to coincide with a bad bout of the flu. I’ve got preventative measures in place to try to keep myself sane this coming February. My teachers are aware it’s happened, so they’re keeping an eye out for me. I’ve been attending couseling through my university since last semester, and that’s really helping too. I’m not allowing myself to take on anything else since my schedule is already super full, and I’m trying to prioritize time for self care - things like MAKING SURE I GET ENOUGH SLEEP, taking breaks, and spending time with friends.

Actual fun things? I’m giving my junior recital in a week and a half, which is stressful but I’m looking forward to it. I’ve been working really hard to get my program together, and I get to play some chamber music with some of my best friends. Also, my family and some of my closest friends will be there to support me. One of my best friends and I are also trying to plan a trip to the mall (and the bookstore) sometime in the next few weeks to hang out - we’re both super busy, and he’s trying to get me out of the small college town we live in to give me a mental break because I literally never leave.
