end of week # 2 for the 12 week design fellowship -
we are in the exploratory research phase and I believe I am leaning towards designing something under the umbrella of making mainstream educational institutions and classrooms more accessible for people with disabilities. let's see how this unfolds.
another broad theme I am fascinated with is making internet more accessible.
loved waking up early today and having a hearty summery breakfast!🍳

Here are some tips that have worked for me:
while reading your notes, read them aloud. It may seem foolish to you reading aloud alone in a room, but trust me it increases retention.
make your own short notes even if you already have someone else's available. It really makes a difference when you yourself write it down.
keep your phone away. i really cannot stress this enough. keep it on silent and keep it away from you physically. it will really boost your productivity.
take short breaks of 5 mins and hydrate yourself. do not, i repeat, do not pick up your phone in those 5 mins.
sit someone down and explain what you've learned to them. i do this with my sister and it really helps me understand the concept and revise it.
Remember that it's also important to take out time for yourself and rest!!! get appropriate sleep. You can do this!!!

18/100 day of productivity
These days it's a bit harder for me to be present online, since it seems like my internet hotspot is really sensitive to hot weather. Alas more reasons to stay on track and be productive - I still have like 10 lectures to go through before next monday. I'm planning on going for a all-nighter tonight.
It also rained pretty heavily today, but it's for the better. I like that kind of weather very much 🍵

How to never get an educational burnout
you can be only two types of people for this.
type 1 : you study inconsistently often on alternate days and wait for the sudden surge of motivation so that you can start planning your studies and include everything in a day but end up feeling overwhelmed so ultimately, you don't study for the entire week
type 2 : you study a lot. like you get around 43 pages of homework done, solve math problems for 3 hours straight, hit the library several times a week and study on weekends. so at the end of the week, you're just burnt out like an extinguished candle
either way, it's not a bad thing. certain people have certain ways of hitting the books and as long as it is working for you, you're good.
but if it is messing with your head and you have a pile of assignments that you were supposed to submit a week ago and don't even mention the huge backlog you have . . .
then you need this post ;)
chunky studying 🧊 like i know i know you have a lot but do a bit today. don't go for six hours if you're a two hours person. break down your studying according to the pomodoro technique 🍅✅
make a daily plan based on hours and not on how much you have to study 🧺 so effective like what, bro, I have been doing that for a month and I've never felt more productive 🕠 it's basically like you plan to study a subject for an hour and then another subject for the next two hours, depending on how long they take. it helps because you just don't end up including everything in the 24 hours you have.
studying 19 hours ≠ productive day ⏳ a productive day is you waking up early, making your bed 🛌🏻, working out 🏋🏻♀️, meditating 🧘🏻♀️, making a healthy breakfast 🍳 (and not just the leftover pizza you had last night ok) and writing down your goals for the day 🔖and getting some studying done 📚, doing your assignments 📝, your daily chores 🧦 etc.
healthy distraction exists 🍫 include your household chores as study breaks 🧽👕 like, if you have done an hour of studying, go clean your room or your desk 🧹 in that way, you'll be having a break + getting some other work done as well and your mind wouldn't be left back on your books
go for a walk 🚶🏻♀️ or just meditate for a couple of minutes 🧸 if you don't want to include chores as study breaks. i meditate during study breaks and i feel so energized 📈 also, stay hydrated. sometimes, you just need water to go on 🥤
i hope this helps :) drop a message anytime if you have to ask anything ✋🏻 i would also love to take suggestions on what to post next 🏷️
follow me for more school tips, next post coming up this week 🔜 self growth check up 🩺

Hello there! It's been a while!
I may have been inactive, but I was far from idle! I've been learning languages such as Japanese, Korean, and German! Though it may have been overzealous of me to learn these languages all at once, so for now I'm focusing on German! (And a bit of Japanese on the side cause I can't help it)
I also may have consumed too much coffee than is allowed but coffee gives me dopamine and I am in dire need of that right now.
How ya'll doing? Is it summer for some of y'all yet?

Is it just me or does leaving the tumblr dashboard of your studyblr open in a computer screen in front of you while you're studying help with motivation?

hi guys! im currently a premed student
i always wanted to make a studyblr when i get into a med school, highlighting my journey there.
so i thought i should make an account before my entrance exam to motivate myself.
there's one month left in my entrance exam, so this is the final home stretch, i hope to get a medical school this year only :)

Good Morning 🌻🌄
I'm back with another Bullet Journal Spread🌈!
Tbh, from the last few weeks, I lost the motivation to journal and to do anything. But thankfully, MILKYSAKURA's videos motivated me again to what I love to do! 🦋✨
This spread is really minimal and tells the kind of status I am in right now.
Love, Jas 🌻

Sorted through a bunch of old study notes from my undergrad to see which ones I want to keep for future reference today and thought I'd share some. Both of these are from my last two years in aero - safe to say my handwriting is far better now.
Left is notes from my junior level controls class with one of my favorite professors. I always enjoy collecting random quotes from my professors in class and you can see some of hers I scribbled in pencil in the margins. On the right is miscellaneous research on the Apollo landing system that I did for a senior design team project. They used a lightweight aluminum honeycomb system that crumpled upon impact - I think I ended up using that same thing in our own theoretical lander proposal. Those notes were taken fairly early on in our project and, given how incredibly intensive it was, I can't remember if this particular section made it into our final report. My biggest regret in my undergrad was not participating more in that class. But I don’t think I could have if I tried since I had so much else going on in my life at the time, so I try not to wallow in the missed opportunity.

A little something about my daily routine. I usually wake up around 8 am, that is, if my dog allows me to. Usually, she'll just whine next to my bed until I'm well awake.
I noticed some of my laziest hours happen right after I wake up. I'm not hungry enough for breakfast, nor do I feel like tackling something particularly monumental. For several weeks, I'd just let this time go by watching YouTube videos or dragging my ass around the house.
Instead, I now use my time from between 8:15 and 9:45 to catch up on my Coursera courses. It has been very to have something enjoyable and bite-sized to ease into the day.
On another note, I had my first class with a new English group today. I am exhausted, but it's for a good reason this time! They are the most enthusiastic people I've ever met. We even sang and some of them said "That was a good class!" as we were wrapping up for the night.
I'm crazy excited for what's coming next.

06.23.2021 // preservation
I’ve been a little down about work these past couple of weeks so I’m trying to focus on the little things that give me joy. Part of that includes my daily commute and starting work in the preservation department for a few hours a week. Yesterday was my first day and I got a tour and training on making folders for pamphlet bound items. I’m excited to develop my hands-on skills and possibly work on book repairs in the future
