Best ways to study

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

I’m still in college, and I’m happy that summer is coming up but since it’s coming, that means finals is coming very soon which is a dread. During this time I’m busy taking notes and studying for my exams, and while I was reviewing my notes, I thought I should share some tips. (BONUS: at the bottom, there’s a music list that I use when I study)

  • To begin if you are studying for an exam DO NOT CRAM. It honestly doesn’t help you it’ll just get you stressed, and you don’t retain the information.
  • When you’re studying you need to take breaks
  • in between studying you should do a little exercise. It increases performance, gives you longer attention span, and gives you more fluid problem-solving. I like to do Zumba on youtube.
  • Have a study group but make sure that the people you are with really do want to study.
  • Test your self on the information every now and then. When you do, you can see what area you need to work on.
  • If you are studying a book, annotate it. If you don’t know what annotate is it is when you add notes to a text. You write explanations or put comments like “I thought this paragraph is interesting” or you could just put symbols/doodles that means something like”?” which would mean that you don’t understand that section and you can use it to ask your teacher a question about it.
  • To study better, you need clear and precise notes. To do this, I personally have two journals one for class one for home. For the classroom journal, I write in pencil, and I just focus on write all the vital information, and once I get home, I take the home journal to recopy my notes but in color. I color coded it, so each color means something specific like red means it’ll definitely be on the test and blue means vocabulary, etc.
  • When you’re taking notes in class, and you feel like you cant catch up see if it’s okay to record the teacher’s voice that way if you miss something later on you can listen to the recording to get the information.
  • Don’t work on a bed usually with me I tend to fall asleep on mine even on the couch because its super comfy so if you’re in the same boat as me you have to work at a table or desk.
  • If you feel like you’re easily distracted at home because of the tv or because of your pet or even family you should go to the public library, the school library, a lounge, or a coffee shop.
  • Now if your phone is what distracts you put it on airplane mode or the do not disturb option.
  • Set a timer. This gives me a goal to reach every time. I feel like I work harder when I put a timer. you could also use an app called Forest (android) Forest (iPhone)
  • Schedule your studying time and make a to-do list to help manage your time.
  • A tip I’ve learned from one of my AP classes n High school is to write the vocabulary word and a simplified definition on a note card then on the other side draw a picture. The picture on it reminds you of the information. For example, the word truncate would be on the front then on the other side you would draw a tree trunk being cut, and that’s supposed to help you know that truncate means to shorten.
  • Personally, I listen to non-lyrical music while I study or do homework I think it helps but for some people, it may not.

Instrumental Music: Hans Zimmer , classical music , upbeat music

Disney , jazz

A Forest Story

Friday, April 6th, 2018

There is an entire forest

full of the most incredible flowers,

plants and trees inside you,

and you are ignoring all of it to nurture a single tree

that they planted inside your heart and abandoned.

The people who left you this way

don’t deserve to become your favorite stories to tell.

You are a massive forest full of beautiful and vibrant stories

and every single one of them deserves you more

then those that abandoned you to hell

-Nikita Gill
