i hope you pursue what you love in 2021, supported and surrounded by people who are so happy to have you in their lives. i hope you realize that we grow from failure, and that the lessons you learn will benefit you so much. those bumps along the roads, the sad days, the doubting, things not turning out just the way you imagined they would - they will happen, and it will be okay. you’ll face it, you’ll survive, grow, and you’ll make a wonderful year for yourself, regardless, or indeed because of that.

This is by far my favourite thing I've seen for this community. I feel so much pressure to read certain books that I haven't got the money to buy and I feel wrong talking about the ones I am reading. This community is great, and I know we all want to be pretentious and snobby, but let's use that for aesthetic purposes and not to put others down.
(Btw ironically enough I found this text post on Instagram, not Tumblr and now I'm reposting it to Tumblr because idk how to find the original)

As most people are working and studying from home right now, I wanted to share some concrete, implementable ways you can help yourself feel better. Though I believe productivity and quantity of work done (or lack thereof) doesn’t/shouldn’t translate into your self-worth and how you view yourself, when you get work done, you actually do feel better in your own body. 
By the way, it’s the first time I’m formatting a tips/guide post like this, so I apologize that I couldn’t be more concise.
I’ve spoken to a licensed professional counsellor as well as to some professionals who have been working from home for a long time, and some of the advice above is from them. I’m also sharing from my own experience as someone who used to be very productive and an (ex-)overachiever, and still attach a lot of my self-worth to grades and other tangible accomplishments. I hope these slides can help you. In case it’s hard to read, I’ve included it (reworded) in text form if you’d like to read more. 
SMART stands for specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-based. It’s what it sounds like: a smart goal. Some people insist on having a system that works for you, but goal-setting has been a core part of how I’ve personally studied and I think if you’re not a goal-based person, you might just have been setting up goals that don’t work for you (everyone is unique in how we work so don’t take my words as the only truth - it is just a convention!) Your goals should be realistic and should be attainable and I like to set goals every day to keep you accountable and keep you on track. 
RAIN Method
The RAIN method is a mindfulness technique. It stands for recognizing, allowing, inquiring and non-identification/nurturing. This mindfulness technique works as a reset. When you’re feeling just stuck and like you can’t bring yourself to do anything, I suggest doing some mindful practices (meditation, if that’s up to your speed). Recognize your body’s feelings. Are you tense? Are your shoulders uncomfortable? Are you anxious? Allow yourself to feel all of this for a moment. Don’t make a reason for yourself (e.g. I’m anxious because I’m this, I have to do that, it will become like this...). Don’t think deeply for now and just feel. Then, inquire your body, ask your body what it needs. Your body will need very reality-based things and not fear-based one. Maybe it’s water, maybe it’s sleep. Nurture your needs. You can non-identify with your issues for just a moment. Take your own hand. Be your own friend. Take care of yourself with love and kindness. Then proceed. 
This means to keep in mind what your end goal is. Why are you doing what you’re doing? Be intentional. Is it to be happy? Great. Is it to escape school? Awesome. Keep your end goal in mind. Stay passionate about it. 
Be confident, be positive. Trust in your own capabilities and believe in where your journey is taking you. Keep an open mind to what you’re doing, believe that you can actually accomplish what you’ve set out to do. We all fall into a pit of disparity, self-doubt and general cynicism. Trust me. But you need to have an attitude that can help you feel better instead of make you suffer endlessly, even if the latter option is easier. People say it all the time and it’s so pretentious, but try to have a good attitude about things. You can be cynical and skeptical but I think it’s better to try to have an edge of optimism.
Stopping points
Another mindfulness thing but also a literal thing. Set your own deadlines (T in SMART stands for time-based, remember?) If you tell yourself “I’ll stop/rest at 5 p.m.” it hopefully becomes more real for you and more urgent for you to do something. Try not to self-sabotage these deadlines. Be empowered and take control over how you live and react to things (this personally helps me with self-sabotaging due to fear over lack of instant gratification and failure). But when it becomes very hard, know when to step back. Take intentional breaks where you process what you need (RAIN technique). Stopping also means rethinking why you’re doing things (endgame) or just stopping everything and just breathe. The bar is set at surviving. Don’t take anything too seriously. It’s life. Live. If you stop taking certain things that seriously, it doesn’t mean you’re irresponsible - it means you’re just living. Live to enjoy and you will enjoy your life better and end up improving yourself. Anyway, I wanted to end on this note because sometimes we glorify productivity and work. You can stop. It doesn’t have to be so serious. Right now, we just need to live.

every minute spent on planning saves you ten minutes spent on execution. short essays probably don't require that much preparation beforehand, but if you're writing something longer you should probably spend some time planning first. this is the process i go through when planning my essays, and i find it works really well!
transcript below:
essay preparation: a guide by apricitystudies
(section one) the planning stage: getting ready to write
1. understand the requirements: all the things you need to know before you start doing anything else. what’s the word count? how many and what types of sources do you need to use? what’s the required referencing style? what criteria will you be graded on?
2. dissect the question by examining three types of terms. key words, or terms that dictate the topic and focus of your essay. instructional words like ‘how’, ‘why’, ‘discuss’, ‘compare and contrast’, and ‘explain’, which tell you how you should answer the question. scope words, which determine the scope of your essay through location, time period, or people.
(next are two examples which i annotated by hand, so i’ll try my best to express them in text form! sorry if the meaning is unclear.)
example 1: breaking down an easy question. what effect does economic hardship have on the rise of totalitarianism? discuss this relationship using examples from the 20th and 21st centuries. here, ‘what’ is an instructional word and ‘effect’ is a key term -- the question is asking you to identify the types of effects. ‘economic hardship’ and ‘the rise of totalitarianism’ are key terms, and this is the relationship the question is focusing on. ‘discuss’ and ‘using examples’ are instructional words telling you how to got about identifying the effects in this relationship. the ‘20th and 21st centuries’ are scope words.
example 2: breaking down a vague question. was the cold war a real or imagined conflict? ‘was’ is an instructional word telling you that this is a yes-or-no question. ‘cold war’ is a key term and  the focus of the question. (end of examples)
3. creating an essay plan, which comprises three parts. a working thesis, or how you will answer the question, the main points of your essay, or how you will prove your thesis is true, and the order of those points, or how you will organise your answer.
an example essay plan based on the earlier question: was the cold war a real or imagined conflict? working thesis: the cold war was a real conflict because it had real, unquestionable, and lasting impacts. main points in order: the impact off the arms race on modern nuclear arsenals, the impact of the korean and vietnam wars, and the impact of the ideological division of europe. this is a highly oversimplified plan! (end of example and planning section)
(section 2) the research stage: gathering information
1. determine what you need to know using these three questions to help narrow the scope of your research. what types of sources do you need? (e.g. journal articles, primary sources, books, etc.) what information are you looking for? what evidence do you need to back up your main points?
2. make a research log: a single document that contains all the information you need to write your essay. below is a screenshot of a table. the top row is a colour-coding system to split evidence by body paragraph. below, the left column is for in-text citations or footnotes for each source. the next column is for the page numbers of each quote. the final and largest column is for the quotes or evidence themselves.
final note: make sure to create your bibliography as you go!
final slide: thanks for reading! i hope this was helpful. from, apricitystudies
