Featuring some of the new stationery I’ve gotten over the past week! I ordered a couple of journals, some washi tape as I’ve never used them before and wanted to try it out, and also these adorable vintage travel stickers that are just so beautiful! You can put them anywhere and it’s really, really, really cute. They weren’t too expensive either and they include lots of different countries. And yes, of course, I had to make sure there was an Italy one bcs, otherwise, it would’ve been a sad day for all of us. Also, I’ve recently realized that I’ve done more online shopping during this period of time (aka the onset of my gap year) than any other time in my life and perhaps that’s something to meditate about. Anyways, I hope y’all are having a great week so far and don’t forget to breathe and forgive yourself!! 🤍✨

the reality behind these pics is i am struggling. this semester has been really challenging bc i’m taking the most difficult courses in my degree online with professors who think online learning means they don’t have to teach anything.
if anyone else is struggling and needs help please please please talk to someone. my dms and asks are always open <3
Typical of me to finally settle into a good routine only to get a cold and lie in bed for a week. Oh well, I’m all better now, I’m finishing up a coursera course I’ve been taking on poetry, and I’ve learned to crochet so that’s fun🧶
28 Sept. 2020: 7/100 Days of Productivity
Monday just seems to be my day now. I had the best workout this morning, ate really good food, and forced nothing. French is really clicking in my head and I feel like it’s coming along well this time. It’s been a while since I’ve bullet journaled and I’m not sure I like this spread but there’s always next week. Here’s to making the most of every day and celebrating the tiny joys in our lives.
P.S. bet nobody can guess my fav colors 😁

Hey sweet angels! How’s everyone doing in this beautiful Monday? I hope everyone’s doing well. Here are some Italian notes that I’ve taken all about the different tenses; it’s quite overwhelming and it reminds me of when we’d spend like months learning different tenses in my French class when I was still in school. Recently, I’ve had the epiphany that learning a language entirely on your own is such a challenge and you really gotta have some passion and self-discipline, but the journey is also very rewarding! I’m so passionate about Italy tbh; I literally just woke up from a dream that my entire family was in Italy and we were going to Venice for a celebration and this pro tennis player was on a pink kiddie bike and leading the way bcs my mom was a bit nervous driving in a new country. It was very interesting. Learning Italian has allowed me to connect with so many different people including a really good friend that I talk to almost everyday and we’re basically each other’s human diaries! We’re so similar (to the extent where it’s a bit crazy) and we vibe really well and, although things are impermanent in this world and that’s just a universal law, I’m gonna cherish our friendship and connection while it lasts. Also, can I just say that I’m literally in love with Alex 23′s IDK You Yet? It’s like the ultimate yearning song; ugh, we love that. I love you all and I hope y’all have a lovely week ahead!! 🤍✨

I have such a big urge to write about my feelings.
I feel always better after writing.
Studying for my English test.
Trying to take notes for my German class, while also reading the Tempest for the first time ever. I love how big this desk is, and I’m slowly developing a routine I like.
i’ve been using notion for quite a while and at the beginning i found it quite confusing. but recently i got into the hang of things and now i have established my own system. for all the people out there who have no idea how to start, i want to show you my set up for university. maybe it will help you!
my university page is a board view with every semester i used notion in. let’s take a look!
when i click on a semester overview the first thing you will see, is a list of all my courses. i write down important details i might need and turn every course into a page.
when you click on the course you’ll find an overview of all the lessons, tagged with the date, status and type of lecture. so it’s very easy to find information.
below all my courses i have two tables. the first one is for my exams and essays. just a little overview of my exam season, the dates, the form of the exam and the credits i get for the course. below that i made a little timetable, which isn’t perfect, but i havn’t figured out yet how to make it better.
and at the very end of my semester overview i have my study plan. this is a great tool for spaced repetition and planning your study sessions. it’s just a normal calender view where i wrote down every lesson i want to revise that day. so i never lose track!
and when you click on one of the topics you will see, that i established a relation to a lesson. so it’s really easy to get back to the lecture material and revise!
my revision, at least for chemistry is heavily based on the toggle feature. because below every toggle you can hide the correct answer. so it’s just like flashcards, but easier. you can even screenshot the lecture slides and fit them in. after answering the question i will mark it with either green (very easy, i don’t have to revise it next time), yellow (i had some difficulties, but i mostly got it right, maybe look over this next time) or red (no idea whats going on, might have to do some research).
i hope this little overview gave you some ideas how to use notion. just keep trying to use it and you will see how much potential the app has! and remember, as a student it’s totally free to use, as long as you use your university mail to sign up!
