are you constantly crushed by the overwhelming fear that you may not achieve your dreams or are you normal
Whenever I’m stressed out and can’t do anything about the issue that stresses me out I just go and organize my notion page.

what to do before, during and after class
How should you be preparing your notes for classes or lectures?
Print out and review any lecture notes or slides if available so you can figure out the structure of the class and the main headings that will be covered
Identify main concepts and terms you expect to learn
Search up any unfamiliar terms, phrases or concepts and get definitions or one sentence explanations
Write questions you hope the class will answer
Make note of any information that could be helpful from previous classes or readings, for example, key people, dates, formulae, definitions, etc.
Read any set preparation material from textbooks or articles and notes down your immediate thoughts
What should you do while in class to get the best notes?
Take notes in your own words
Use consistent abbreviations and symbols
Include notes for all aspects of the class (eg. discussions and visuals)
Answer any questions you wrote before class
Add depth and detail to the notes you bring to class (eg. are there any specific examples that the teacher brings up for example?)
Note new questions or areas of confusion from the lecture so you can review those concepts later
Capture main ideas and sufficient detail (definitions, examples, images)
Make connections between concepts both from within the class and from previous classes
Now that you have notes, what should you do with them?
Make time to return to your notes after class, at the very least to read over them
Add clarification and explanation to any areas where you were confused and look up any questions you had (you could also ask your teacher)
Compare notes with a friend or study partner to check for any missed information
Transform your notes into a new format (e.g. mind map, quiz questions, study guide)
Create short summaries with the most important information and keep for later revision (you could even challenge yourself to a certain word limit)
Use your notes to self-test on key concepts by creating your own practice questions and mark schemes

yes this is half way through the month but at least it’s the right month! my may theme is inspired by the leaf doodles in heartstopper, which i watched soon after it came out. i thought it was really cute and definitely a story that needs to be told but probably aimed at a slightly younger age group. i did really love the doodles which is why i chose to recreate them in my planner!
