Hello, Tumblr!

We're here to say that we don't always find the right way to study and get things done. How many times have we pulled all-nighters to hand in that paper/project or crammed last minute for that important maths exam?

We thought so.

So... This is for you.

We post pro-tips (when time allows) and some motivational posts in between to keep you all going.

Don't hesitate about asking or submitting anything you'd like to see here!

Happy Studying!

Procrastination is a thief. It steals our time, our potential, our self-esteem, our peace of mind.

Hi there anon, I actually have the app on my phone, so if you message me in private, I’ll be able to take screenshots for you :)

A tip to using Wolfram Alpha is also breaking up the equation in different steps- it won’t always give you the full step-by-step, but it can give you a closer look to how it’s being solved.

Failure is your best friend. It never kills you. It always teaches you. And the feeling it brings is as real as it gets. You fail? Cool. Work it out on paper and re-calibrate. You tried it once and it didn’t go? Cool. Youtube that activity and find your shortcoming. Drink that bitterness. You won’t die.

TAG! You’re it!

I’ve been tagged by studymotivationandmore !

Here are my 11 answers to her questions :)

1. What’s your favorite quote?

Oh gosh, this took me like 5 minutes to figure out- but I believe one of my favourites has to be by Einstein:

Everyone is a genius.

But If you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

2. What are your goals for the school year? 

I guess my main goals are too keep to what I plan to do, focus on my courses and not let small insignificant things get in the way of them. Simply to know what is best for myself. Oh, and to have fun, is that a goal?

3. What’s your guilty pleasure?

Watching way too many weird documentaries on TLC…. Like “Extreme cheapskates” or “My strange addiction” They can’t be real, can they??

4. What’s your best study tip?

My best study tip would probably be to not compare yourself to others. We don’t all learn the same way, what’s efficient for some might not be as efficient for oneself- so it’s important to not go by a “it works for that person, so it should work for me”-motto, but instead to find what works best for you :)

5. Do you have an study playlist?

I do…or did, nowadays I don’t really listen to music while studying anymore, I have weird phases where it sometimes distracts me more than anything- so I’ll just listen to rainycafe or rainymood.

If you’re like me, and can be a little sensitive to noisiness in the exam hall, I’d recommend listening to rainycafe in the background to get used to mumbling noises…. Not that exam halls should ever reach that level of sound, but it can be a good way to easing your mind into working despite the level of noise around you :) 

But if I do listen to music, it’s mostly instrumentals by Dennis Kuo and movie scores. I’ve noticed that listening to instrumentals I don’t have an association to makes it easier for me to concentrate on things- or I might start dancing and humming along to things like the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack…

6. Last concert you were to?

Is it bad if I can’t remember? I’m not really a concert-person >__<; But I do love musicals, and the last one I saw was Jersey Boys on Broadway a few years ago :]

7. What keeps you motivated most?

Tough question! I’ve always been such an impatient person- always looking forward to the next week or day because of big events coming up, always wanting to move on to the next stage of life… I’m not going to lie, oftentimes I still feel pretty lost and confused about my life choices, but I guess following my gut feeling and instincts has kept me the most motivated. If I know I’m doing something I’m comfortable with and something that feels right to me, then I’ll just stick with it. 

8. Who inspires you?

There are so many people in my surroundings that inspire me, I can’t really say that there’s one person who inspires me the most. 

My parents, for one, inspire me to become a more independent person- to not have to rely on anyone else for anything, because you never know where you’ll end up and who you’ll have around you in the future..

My grandparents, all of them, have come from very humble beginnings, and have built their businesses and careers from scratch- always pressing on, and always been there for family.

My friends who go after what they want in life, I’ve had so many of them move away to attend universities/follow job opportunities abroad so they can be one step closer to their dream. Seeing them so happy and motivated makes me inexplicably happy and wanting that for myself as well :)

You guys on Tumblr, following and supporting this blog, motivates and inspires me to keep it going- and to keep challenging myself so I can continue giving you guys feedback and advice. 

9. Have you ever had a professor/teacher crush?

Can’t say that I have- most of my professors at school have been pretty quirky and funny in their own way… Although I did have an exercise supervisor that looked a lot like Zac Efron, he was really cute ;)

10. What’s your favorite film?

Okay first off, what’s the definition of favourite film? Is it a movie you can watch over and over again without getting sick of-? Or a movie you have to watch once a year in order for your year to feel complete and perfect? 

You know what, I’ll just bore you with my list:

Movies I can watch over and over again: 27 dresses, Howl’s Moving Castle, 13 going on 30, how to lose a guy in 10 days, Bridget Jones diaries, the Devil wears Prada.

Movies I have to watch once a year: Home alone 1 & 2, LOTR trilogy, Forrest Gump, Inception, Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain

Movies that I’ve walked out of the cinema going: BEST. MOVIE. EVER- and then never seen again because I’m waiting to have a marathon with them ALL: All Marvel movies.  

11. What’s your biggest wish?

This is going to sound cheesy:

Wherever I end up in life, and whatever I end up doing- that I’ll feel fulfilled and happy. 

The rules are:
1) you answer these 11 questions
2) you write 11 new questions
3) you tag 11 people

1) What makes you happy?
