I‘m so angry and disgusted right now. I read about my home country, East Turkistan. (China calls it Xinjiang.) for a while, I stopped reading reports because I was suffering. But now I can’t ignore this any longer. I am heart broken and can’t comprehend what I’ve read. words cannot describe how I am feeling, how hurt I am and how angry I am. Therefore, I feel like I need to share this. I know a lot is going on right now but please pay attention to this as well.
I will not post everything but you can Read more here.

How to Start Studying
Sometimes it's really hard and annoying to start studying so I've compiled a few tips that will help you to start studying:
1. clear a study space
Clean your workspace for 5-10 minutes before your study session so you’ll feel super motivated to get working. There’s something about having a decluttered desk that will make you feel so organized it will make you want to sit behind the desk & study!
2. get all the items you will need
all motivation goes down the drain when you have to get up multiple times to get every item you need so getting all the essentials before studying really helps.
3. grab some water and snacks
staying hydrated while studying is very important and you can never go wrong with snacks :)
4. get rid of all distractions
Turn off your phone or put it on DND to help you focus. Some people do study better with music but it's better to have music with no lyrics because if you are like me you will just end up singing and jamming to the song instead of studying xD
5. make a list
Write down all the tasks you need to accomplish, breaking the bigger ones down into smaller, bite-sized pieces.
6. start with something easy
The idea is that it’s something that you can just knock out without much brainpower but that doesn’t waste time. It also gives you sense of accomplishment and boosts your motivation to continue working.
7. use a system
I personally use the Pomodoro Technique. It’s great at keeping you focused. I usually study for 75 min and take a 15 min break since it works best for me. It doesn’t really matter what system you use to study – find something that works for you and stick to it.
8. make it a habit
If you turn studying into a daily habit, you won’t even have to think about starting anymore because you’re so used to it. Don’t question it, I just do it!
9. dont strive for perfection
Let that strive for perfection go, as it will take you a lot longer to finish the work. This will make your study experience less fun and more stressful which will make starting next time harder. So instead of wanting to do your work perfectly, try to focus on getting it done.
10. make it fun and enjoyable
burn a candle, put on some music, whatever helps you to get started.
i hope these are useful!! :)
