day 9 of @myhoneststudyblr’s studyblr community challenge!
what is the worse thing about studyblr in your opinion?
i think the standards of running a studyblr has been twisted. people tell you (or at least they give the impression) that you need to have nice handwriting, the most expensive stationery and pretty notes to run a studyblr. but that’s simply not true.
all you need is a tumblr account and boom, you can have a studyblr. you don’t need to post pretty pictures of your notes (or any pictures at all in fact) to tell people that you studied; you don’t need the most expensive stationery to “fit in”; you don’t even need nice handwriting to run a studyblr.
what really matters is your will to study and better yourself. every other materialistic thing is just a plus, if you wish to indulge yourself, and is not necessary in running a studyblr.
i’ve personally fallen into this trap myself and it messes with your self-esteem because no matter how many new pens you buy or how neat your notes are, you will never feel good enough compared to the “ideal version” of a studyblr.
so don’t put pressure on yourself to “fit in” with the rest by buying a ton of stationery or changing your handwriting or following a certain “aesthetic”. just be you and people will come to accept you for it ❤

last week’s not-so-productive bujo spread + a dressmaking project i’m working on!
Studied for tomorrow’s geography test.
Wasn’t enough tho.
French cheat sheet and my grammar book.
Another month passed. It’s really how fast time passes.
biology! i’ve really only been doing practice questions for all my subjects since exams are coming up, none of which are ✨aesthetic✨ but i’m excited to document my language learning journey once these big exams are all over!
Studying for my English test.
Today I’ve managed to have a very productive day and get a lot of the things I said I’d do done! The day isn’t out yet and I still have a few more pieces of homework to do but I’m hopeful.
Productivity Score: 8/10
Relying on Khan Academy again to learn new concepts. I wish I could personally give Sal Khan an award.
He’s almost singlehandedly taught me everything I wanted to know since I was literally 9 years old. I’m more than halfway done with completing my engineering degree, and still learning from his excellent content. It’s weird/poetic to think I sat in front of the computer and learned basic algebra from him when I was still losing my baby teeth, learned physics from him as an (edgy) teenager, and am learning from him as a nearly-fully-grown-adult engineering student 300+ miles away from home.
All for free.
european history work! ☕️

REVISING SOME NOTES
Reading some short stories!
This could be a fun tag thing? Shout out some media that inspires you and tag some people!
I’m currently studying computer engineering and I’m interested in space systems. I think people who want to know more about those would enjoy:
- The Innovators by Walter Isaacson, a book about teams that pushed the early days of computing forward
- Roving Mars by Steve Squyres, a book that tells the story of the development of the Spirit and Opportunity rovers through the eyes of the lead scientist
- High Score, a Netflix series about early video games and the people who made them
