guess who's back and drowning in math :^)
i think i have to explain my recent lack of activity although i always seem to laugh it off in the posts but its mainly because 1. i'm kind of running out of ideas on what to post?? if that makes sense, i'm kind of studying/doing the same thing every day and if i posted the same content with the exact same notes and/or work it would be so dry. and that's also because 2. i'm about to have a major exam so obviously my phone is lying somewhere far out of my reach so that i don't procrastinate and waste my revision time. which also means i'm not taking the pictures as well so no posts :')
to the anons in my inbox asking me to check my tag/checking up on me: i'm super sorry and i feel kinda bad because honestly i just don't have that time to scroll through tumblr that much anymore?? i promise i see the asks, and i'll definitely go through the unreblogged/liked posts that are tagged after my exam :)
so if anyone wants to send me asks/speak to me, just a reminder that you can send it through the tumblr dms as well because i check those more frequently than the askbox! i'll always check tumblr once a day so i'll reply when i see it :))
as for now i'm not sure if you guys want to see more pics?? but they'll probably be the same things over and over again but if nobody minds then i'll try to take more pics and schedule them so that there's at least some form of content on this sad little blog

how to fall in love with life again
go cloud-gazing, lay down in the grass on a sunny day, or empty roads on a rainy day, stare up at the sky and let your mind wander.
read a book so complex that you don't understand anything, fill your arms with scrawled definitions.
writing poems and notes of kindness, hiding them for other people to find and pass along!
read passages of love in another language, untranslated and realise that love can surpass even the greatest of barriers.
find your favourite flower! hunt for it, research it, write an essay on why you love it and how much it means to you!
buy another copy of your favourite book, fill the pages with annotations and give it to a second hand shop for somebody else to experience it the way that you do.
fill a journal with moments of your life, even if you don't think they're very interesting.
listen to music whilst looking at the moon and stars, realising how beautiful life is.
visit an art gallery or a museum near you. become familiar with it, visit it until you know it inside out. make it your special place.
learn the little things about people, including yourself. find their favourite colour and why, find their music taste, their taste in books until you know them perfectly.
the small things! taking sips of warm beverages becomes the most comforting thing, closing your eyes for a moment on a bus and focusing on the lull of movement.
bake/cook your favourite treat. experiment and find the way that makes it taste simply ethereal.

07.18.21. i've realized that i'm most productive in the morning, but i have to be at work at 9am sharp. solution: waking up early, dragging my limp, uncaffeinated body to the library, and trying to work on postbacc apps for an hour before work. being an adult... wouldn't recommend.

Rereading books from high school to feel somewhat young again is a valid form of self care.

How To Study When You Really Don鈥檛 Want To
Active Revision Techniques
How To Do Uni Readings
How to Revise BIG Subjects
Non-Stop Studying
The Problem
You find a comfortable spot to study and refuse to move ever again. You don鈥檛 even think about taking a break鈥攖hat would be a waste of time and your due date is super close so you can't afford to do that
The Solution
Whether you鈥檙e doing this because you think it鈥檚 efficient or because you left everything until the last minute, you鈥檙e not going to learn much. Our brains need rest time to process information. Planning ahead is the key here. Instead of focusing only on your deadlines, work backwards and figure out when you need to聽start working on a project. Take into account how long each part聽of the work will take you. You鈥檒l feel less overwhelmed and more able to actually learn the material, as opposed to just cramming. If you鈥檙e really in a pinch (hey, it happens to everyone), try out the聽pomodoro method:聽25 minutes on, 5 minutes off, with a longer break every 4 circuits. It holds off exhaustion and keeps you feeling refreshed over long periods of heavy work!
Over Highlighting
The Problem
You try to study by reading the textbook, but somehow end up highlighting everything and remembering nothing.
The Solution
Turns out, passively re-reading a textbook is pretty useless. Just because you鈥檙e聽holding a highlighter聽doesn鈥檛 mean you鈥檙e actually engaging with the material. Learn how to聽read actively聽by聽taking notes聽as you read, which will force you to decide what parts of the reading are worth remembering. Come up with practice questions or make flashcards. The more of the 5 senses you use in your studying, the more likely you are to remember the information. If your exam includes an essay portion, think about what kinds of themes your professor might ask about and make some possible outlines. Even if your practice questions don鈥檛 actually show up on the exam, you鈥檒l be in the right headspace!
Multitasking聽
The Problem
You are studying at the same time that you are watching the newest show on Netflix, texting a friend about what happened last Tuesday and cooking a three-course meal.
The Solution
People are actually聽really bad at multitasking. While we think we鈥檙e focusing on 2 things at once, we鈥檙e actually switching between 2 tasks very rapidly, meaning that our brains never have time to fully adjust to working on either one. Unfortunately, the only way around this one is to plan ahead (weird how that keeps cropping up). Make a study schedule ahead of time and figure out which days you鈥檒l devote to which subjects. You鈥檒l be able to process the material more efficiently than you would if your attention was split between tasks, and ultimately you鈥檒l have more confidence in what you鈥檝e learned.
Solo Studying聽
The Problem
You only ever study in solitude and refuse to ask anyone else for help.
The Solution
Studying on your own is fine (sometimes even preferable), but having people you can聽bounce ideas off of can be insanely helpful (even over Zoom!).聽Convince a friend or family member to let you 鈥渢each鈥 them the material鈥攖he gaps in your understanding will become more obvious when you try to explain a topic to an uninformed party. If you have no one available, you could even teach to a pet or toy. Most importantly, take advantage of your professors or teachers and contact them if you鈥檙e confused about something. You won鈥檛 regret it.
Studying Chronologically
The Problem
You sit down to revise for an exam and you look through all of the notes from your class in chronological order.
The Solution
In addition to being a very passive study strategy, it also puts you at risk of running out of time to review the material you learnt most recently, which is often emphasised more heavily on the final exam and can also be some of the most difficult concepts to master 鈥 especially for classes like math and languages that increase in difficulty throughout the semester. You will also probably be reviewing information you already know.聽Instead of studying in chronological order, try studying in priority order, spending the majority of your time on the information that will be most important for you to know for the test.
Memorising, Rather Than Understanding聽
The Problem
You know that you need to know facts in an exam so you study by trying to memorise all of the facts from a class, rather than truly understanding the underlying concepts.聽
The Solution
Memorising can work well in some classes, especially in earlier stages of school, but it often backfires in more advanced classes. If you鈥檝e memorised a definition but don鈥檛 really understand what it means, then as soon as the information is presented in a slightly different format, or you鈥檙e asked to apply it to a new type of problem, you will have no idea how to proceed. Rather than memorising the information from your classes, use study strategies that encourage you to understand it. Explaining ideas out loud in your own words, or teaching them to someone else, are great examples of study strategies that promote understanding.
Not Practicing How You鈥檒l Be Tested
The Problem
You have a study method that you use for all of your exams no matter the subject or the format of the exam.聽
The Solution
It鈥檚 great to have a study method that supports your revision but often they can be limited to specific skills. For example, flashcards might be a great strategy for a test that is mostly multiple-choice and matching questions, but they might be less useful for essays. If you want to be prepared for your exams, you need to make sure that the way you are studying for your test is similar to how you will actually be tested on the material.聽The best way to do this is by doing practice questions. Numerous studies have shown that students who test themselves on the material they are learning remember the information better than students who do not take practice tests. Practice testing also helps you avoid 鈥渋llusions of competence鈥: situations in which you think you know the information better than you do.聽
Not Using Active Revision Techniques
The Problem
You study by re-reading over your notes or perhaps rewriting them.聽
The Solution
Unfortunately, this approach to studying is not very effective, in large part because it is extremely passive. Students who use this approach will readily admit that they can read over a page of notes and not remember what they have just read! If you don鈥檛 remember it right after you鈥檝e read it, how could you possibly hope to answer questions about it on the test? Choosing more active study strategies that require you to engage with the material will enable you to learn the material more effectively and efficiently. This includes: mindmaps, flashcards, past papers, study groups, and many more.

balancing self care and studies
make sure to get enough sleep - all nighters are NOT good for maximum brainpower, trust me. try to make a routine of what time to sleep and wake, as it helps you to feel refreshed during the mornings.
water! at first i hated drinking so much water because it felt like a chore. so, instead i used one of those big two litre diet coke bottles. it means that i can fill it once and then use it all day, without having to keep getting up. remember, your body can only absorb so much at a time, so small sips!
if it gets to the point where your brain is shutting down and you simply cannot think anymore - then don't. pushing yourself overworks you and ultimately means you're not learning/studying as effectively. try taking a small break, fifteen minutes without your phone, just move your legs, give your brain a rest. if you return and still cannot work, take a longer break or even stop for the rest of the night. you need breaks!
allow yourself some pampering. it doesn't have to be much, but washing your face can make the world of difference. cold showers are refreshing, warm ones are more relaxing. to each their own.
make sure you're living life outside of your studies. sure, for now it may seem like it's everything, but neglecting your mental health is even worse. please take care of yourself.
do some exercise! yes, yes, i know. but even ten minutes of some stretches can do you the world of good. make sure you give your body some work, especially after longer study periods. try not to over do it though - sometimes people do longer workouts, which although aren't inherently bad, it can make exercising feel like a chore.
hobbies! find something fun that you like to do, watch a movie, read a book, do some artwork! (and if you do some - tag me please #snippetsofsherlock )
