there is always room for improvement, but that doesn’t mean you’re not improving.

today’s weather was rainy, i barely slept. but for some reason i actually got some studying done, so i felt good and as a reward i got a certificate!
felt like drawing today (:
Hot take everyone needs at least one creative hobby to accompany their consumptive ones. I don’t mean just art and writing I mean literally anything where you create something.
Embroidery, cooking, knitting, gardening, wood whittling, trap making, needle felting, instrument playing, bug raising, fandom analysis writing, ANYTHING where you do work and can hold the fruits of your labor in you hands. Anything where you MAKE something else.
Something that isn’t a career choice. Something you don’t have to be good at. As long as it brings you joy.
Please get hobbies, they enrich your life.
destroy the idea that intermediate goals aren’t important. maybe you can’t play the entire piano piece yet, but you can play the right hand and that’s good. maybe you haven’t figured out your major yet, but your minor or your field and that’s progress. maybe you can’t hold a full conversation in your target language yet, but you can ask for directions and that’s fine. setting high goals is good, but don’t diminish the small goals you achieve on your way there. they are just as important.
i noticed this thing with a lot of men. they tend to be really generous and kind only to women they’re attracted to. duh, obvious statement to most of you but it’s jarring when you see it first hand and it’s so prevalent and insidious to the point that it feels uncomfortable accepting help from a strange without thinking of the possibility of him having ulterior motives. and it’s disheartening knowing that if you’re in a position needing a man’s help, a lot of times it will depend entirely on whether or not he’s attracted to you. and the problem is that they think this goes both ways. i can show a simple gesture of kindness and a man will take it as me coming on to him. me letting you go in front of me on the checkout line because you have one item, me offering change because you don’t have any, or anything other well-intentioned act of kindness results in a man trying to eventually make a move thinking that it’s mutual. how sad it must be to think that there’s no kindness for the sake of kindness. that all good done in this world is based on sexual impulses instead of the desire to help another human being just how you like to be helped.
day 3 of @myhoneststudyblr ‘s studyblr community challenge: why did you create your studyblr?
well, i started following studyblrs when i got into college and i fell in love with them! it gave me a nice feeling inside, motivation to study and they are also very aesthetically pleasing (and i study design, so) however, i only decided to make one at the end of last month, it was an impulsive thought. like those thoughts that keep poking your arm and saying ‘’do it’’ and then your brain says ‘’should i or should i not’’ and i was studying marketing at the time, and i just stopped studying and was like? im gonna make one 🤡
i remember feeling kind of empty, like something was missing. creating a studyblr did not change my life, or made me a happier person whatsoever, it was just a tiny thing that i wanted to do, something to look forward to, a new platform to use, new friends to make, and i had nothing to lose! i didnt think about making pretty notes, or getting a lot of notes on my posts, i just wanted to attend my whims and thoughts! a lot of the times at the very bottom of our heart or souls or brain, we get a tiny action that we want to do, most of the time we completely shut it down because we have no reason to do that action, but what i think its that some of the whims that we have need to be realized, we need to listen to our mind when it wanders, and attend an impulsive need!

i have one question for all the studyblrs out there.
WHY IS YOUR HANDWRITING SO PRETTY??????????????!!!!!
the amount of notes that i took yesterday from a class that I had to rewatch were insane. ive never written this much before lol and I have 3 or 4 more classes to rewatch and take more notes so im definitely not looking forward to it 😭😭
this week has been rough for me, but ill get through it! yesterday i downloaded the sims and got to unwind after writing to the point my fingers were hurting, so today ill be doing more reviews and treat myself at the end of the day with more the sims gameplay!
You know, I see all these posts scattered throughout my dashboard and the tags about how the studyblr community mustn’t forget that studying isn’t perfect bujo’s and pristine white desks, and that sometimes it’s cramming using a Quizlet that you searched up because you didn’t realize that your quiz was TODAY, and sometimes it’s drafting a paper while you’re at work because no one could take your shift. But you know what? Sometimes we need to romanticize ourselves. We need to have a glass of wine while we read our dull textbooks, and arrange perfect stationery on new bedding.
Embrace what makes you happy, and embrace what motivates you. If that is flawless notes and MUJI pens, then so be it. Flaunt that. If you love the unbridled chaos of a five hour study/research session, and revel in the tornado of paper and desktop tabs it creates, then cultivate that.
Stop caring what others think about what makes you happy and just embrace being happy for once.
- you are a studyblr
- you are super friendly
- you love when people message you
- you want to support everyone in the community
one thing i love about this community is that it is one big family and everyone is ready to support eachother. reblog this and follow the people that also reblog and start some super cute supportive friendships because you all deserve the best

the weather is so nice today, warm with a breeze and the sun is shining! i felt a huge need to go outside so I brought my laptop and notebook so i can work instead of just spending time in my room and I already feel great just by stepping outside my house to the backyard 😌🍃
pt/br: o tempo tá tão bom, quente com uma brisa e o sol tá brilhando!! eu senti uma necessidade enorme de sair pra fora então eu trouxe meu notebook e meu caderno pra eu poder trabalhar ao invés de só ficar no meu quarto e eu já me sinto muito melhor só de sair de dentro de casa pro quintal 😌🍃
you are fine. i know everything seems to be moving fast and it all seems so scary right now, but you are absolutely fine. take deep breaths and remember to remain in the present. keep your thoughts light and your burden will subside. your worries will blow away like a leaf on a windy day. the sun will come up tomorrow, the wind will continue to blow. you will be okay. you will be alright.

I know, I already write my first post, but I think maybe it’s good idea to introduce myself to some people on here. I saw this on the blog @anartstudies and it’s really great. she seem to be a pretty cool person, so I hope she don’t mind if I do the same on my blog. thanks for the inspiration girl, you rock!
● my name Is pia, some of my friends call me darcy or moony, so I’m fine with this.
● i’m 23 years old and my birthday is on christmas, so i’m your personal jesus! (okay, sorry, no bad depeche mode jokes anymore.)
● I'm from Germany so English is not my first language, so there will be errors and mistakes in my posts. please feel free to correct me, I want to learn!
● at the moment I’m studying pedagogy at the university in my town, because I want to work with kids with disabilities.
● one of my biggest dreams is to become a writer and to make people happy with my books and entertain them.
● i’m also hard of hearing, so I have to wear hearing aids since I was born.
● I'm really interested in history, art, photography, movies and literature.
● I write fanfictions as well, sadly there are all in german, but I write them about Harry Potter, Kingsman, Sherlock and Tatort (a German tv show) most of the time.
● the studyblog community on here always motivate me to learn more and not even for school/uni, but for me and my life to know a lot about stuff I’m interested in.
● and last but not least (thanks for the idea @anartstudies) some studyblr I really like: @drunkacademie @dungeonstudy @bright-goals @thomastudies @soymilkkoffee @plague-o and so many more I can’t remember them all.
thanks for reading this and have a nice day!
