realistic academia: balled up paper thrown behind me, notes and textbooks scattered across every flat surface including the floor, snacks get their own chair next to me, a pen that ran out of ink, blanket for comfort, water bottle that I haven’t actually taken a sip out of for the past 4 hours

Protect brown girls who didn’t know the following scholarships existed
This isn’t my normal content, but I was thinking recently about how many academic opportunities I missed out on simply because my parents didn’t know the Western academic institution like my white peers did. And by the time I heard about most of these scholarships and programs, I was too old to apply, or they didn’t make sense for my career path anymore.
I have a lot of young followers. I imagine many of you find yourselves in a similar position, where your non-South Asian peers are applying for scholarships that no one ever told you about. I also imagine many of you are looking for ways to seek education on your own terms, and figuring out the finances poses a hurdle. So I wanted to do a rundown of some prestigious and/or South Asian-centric scholarship programs that you may find yourself eligible for and interested in, at a time when you’re young enough to take advantage of these opportunities--or, at the least, young enough to keep them in mind as you go through school.
This is not a list of every scholarship out there. The scholarships listed here are specifically prestigious, nationally or globally recognized scholarship programs that don’t require independent nomination or enrollment in a specific field of study. As a result, these are also highly selective programs, with some granting fewer than 50 awards each year. But that shouldn’t discourage you from applying! God knows your white peers are applying without caring if they meet the requirements.

How to study a language at school
Tumblr media
Hi! I’ve studied several languages throughout my time in the education system, the main ones being French, Arabic and German. I thought I would give some advice on how to make the most out of classes, and how to study outside of them.
Learn all the vocabulary you are given in class. You can use flashcards (digital ones, like anki, quizlet and memrise, are very good).  Personally, I have two sets of flashcards on anki: one for class vocabulary, and one for vocabulary I have learnt outside of class. You can also try to use mneumonics and songs to learn them, so that they stick in your head (when I was a kid, I remember learning the Arabic names for fruit by singing the vocab list to the tune of ‘centuries’ by fall out boy - it was very effective!). Also, try to write them down, and keep on testing yourself on them. Note down any useful extra words as well, though you don’t have to memorise them. They are just nice.
For each topic, try and generate some points to make before you have to write or speak about them. For example, if you have to talk about the generation divide in your target language, then try writing down your opinions in English first. Then, try figuring out a few ways to express those points in your target language. Maybe try memorising some set phrases, or relevant strings of vocabulary (credit to @wilstudies​ for this idea!).
Do practice questions. Use practice questions for grammar especially. Also, try doing exam specific practice, like reading and listening tasks. You can use work/textbooks for this. You might also be able to find them online.
It’s kind of a no brainer, but don’t waste your lessons. Do all the tasks set for you, even if you don’t like them, and do your homework. Also, make sure to ask your teacher for the meanings of certain words, or to explain grammar you don’t understand. Maybe try speaking in your target language during your lessons with the person you are sitting beside.
Immerse. Try watching youtube videos, and read social media posts in your target language in your free time. Maybe listen to a podcast while you are walking to school, or read fanfiction when you are bored. Switch your phone’s language to your target language. Just try to listen to and read content that you can understand at least 70% of.
Thanks for reading this post! I hope it was useful to you!

Little bit of a witchy spread this week and a witchy book (reading “The Year of the Witching”) because Halloween is almost here! Also, homemade copycat Crumbl snickerdoodle cookies (recipe not mine) and some hot apple cider and a pumpkin spice scented candle to really get into fall. 🍂🍁
Now time to get a lot of homework done. (And yes, I did get glasses, hence them in this pic.)

Trying to make the most of this time when I’m not swimming in work…I can’t imagine it’s going to last too long

so i’ve decided i’m not going back to college for the spring semester for a few reasons.
the biggest one is i still need time to figure out my psych meds. i’m pretty stable right now but i have room for improvement and i need to make sure my body doesn’t just get used to the medication and start going into psychosis again like what happened with my haloperidol.
but aside from that, i’ve recently been finding a new passion in sex education. i don’t know if i want to spend my time getting an associate’s degree at my community college when i can take online certification classes from reputable organizations like planned parenthood, SHEC, and AASECT. i can be qualified to work in classrooms and health centers without going to college and i can start my passion sooner than later.
i’m looking into getting a career coach (the same one my mom has cause she’s GREAT) to help me find what path in sex education works best for me, and i need that time to make my decisions and i don’t want to be weighed down by courses like mandatory math courses that don’t link to my area of study.
i basically don’t want to waste money if i don’t have to. i can put the money i would use for the semester into career coaching and really find out what i want to do, and if it ends up that i need college to do that, i can start next fall instead. another option i’m thinking about is becoming a sex educator to begin with, and then later in my life pursue a degree to do my own research about topics i’m passionate about and get a phD. but i want to spend time just focusing on certifications and workshops and building professional relationships with others in the field.
i feel really happy about this decision because the spring semester has been really hanging over my head and i feel like i can take my time now. my community college accepts everyone who applies and i can always re-enroll if that’s what’s best for me.
i think i always thought i couldn’t do anything without going to college, but i found this whole area that i’m passionate about where i can focus on that specifically and in my own time, which is so much better for my learning style. it’s been hard to come to terms with the fact that my future doesn’t look like my friends’, but i’ve really learned that college isn’t for everyone and you can still lead a meaningful and impactful life without it

Welcome to my uni library I guess? This week has been a little bit busy because I’m still trying to figure out how to balance the need to read all of the things I have to for classes and having some down time that I spend not being stressed. Anyway, these are pictures from my study session on Thursday. I’ve been at the library a couple of times before but they don’t really have the most comfy chairs in this section so I tend to use other study spots when I’m on campus. However, it’s been very quiet up there that morning and it has a great view! We also got some chocolate (kvikk lunsj, to be precise) as a welcome back to campus gesture which was very, very nice and possibly the only reason I even went to uni that day haha.
