hello all, my name is maria!
i am a first year biomedical student in toronto, canada. i am 18 years old, love cats (especially my sweet boy), and want to become a pediatric oncologist when i grow up! my dream is to work at sickkids hospital, so i’m definitely manifesting that.
i began my journey w studyblogs on tumblr back in highschool, however i finally mustered the courage to create my own. it’s been an incredibly inspiring resource of motivation, revolutionizing my studying and wanting to hold myself publicly accountable.
i want to start the #100daysofproductivity! so here we go :)

monday, january 25 | day 16/100 of productivity
sorry for the late post, i had a hectic morning :( but please appreciate my cute lil octopus who’s REVERSIBLE - he becomes purple and angry instead of blue and happy LOL
going home to see my parents has been very lovely <3 the only problem is i don’t want to study b/c i just want to hang out with them LOL not alot of work has been done, but i have kept up my anki streak over the weekend! small wins :-)
-savour every second i spend w/ my fam
-figure out a study schedule for my first midterm of the semester 🙃
-use self-care (ex. working out, journalling) as a tool for your mental health, not something you have to check off a list
Another day back on campus for classes! I never loved the snow before coming here, or even really saw a ton of beauty in it. Now, looking at these photos, this view warms my heart. Even though the green in the spring and the summer is gorgeous, this place always feels most at home during the winter!
January 25, 2021
My English teacher doesn’t think I can handle analyzing the Iliad (even though I’ve done it before) so now I have to prove her wrong
first day halfway done
01.25 - took an ap psych test, reviewed for ap psych (past chapter), worked on a spanish assignment, worked on an english essay draft, an ap euro assignment, took a spanish test, meditated for gym, recieved some books in the mail, emailed a teacher… so yeah id say my day was pretty productive lol !!
I recently made a reading journal and that’s the cover. I enjoyed doing it was so relaxing and I love the result.
This month I’m reading The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka and soon I’ll be able to write about the experience I had with it.
a dark academia-esque photo set i did for my small pin business.
we are currently holding a giveaway for this pin set [@sleepyghosty on instagram] if anyone that sees this is interested.
Sometimes i feel, wish i would have not met anyone.
Write down your plans :)
I have a lot of messy math pics from my frenzied studying yesterday. I tried to add a few things into the top pictures to make them look a little more “aesthetic”, but to be honest it’s just straight math with a few cute markers and erasers I have topped over it. Productivity isn’t always beautiful.
Anyways, I got a high B on the quiz I had yesterday! Which, to be honest, I’m really proud of, even if it isn’t a “perfect” grade. I am amazingly bad at math and I normally just give up on it and don’t even bother studying, so a B is honestly nothing I’m going to cry over. I won’t know how I did on exams for a week if my teacher’s syllabus is to be believed, but fingers crossed it’s a passing grade.
came back home after celebrating a friend’s birthday 🌼
snowy monday afternoon.
Oh, I don’t have this type of sticky notes!
- Me, who has every other type of sticky notes
cozy lectures at home, iced coffee that i drink way too quickly, and taylor swifts new album that’s playing constantly
procrastinate isn’t cool but it is what it is
25.01.21// I miss sitting outside at cafes with coffees and crepes. To be honest I really just miss going anywhere. Truly have my fingers crossed that we are able to travel in the next year ✨
25 Jan 2021 | 🌞 | I’ve handed in my final essay for honours and nearly completed my thesis!!!! Just need to finalise the discussion and do my two final exams. And I’ll be free!!!
