Hello lovelies! I have been at school for 3 days now and have already got back into my regular habit of taking notes. I thought it would be good to share with you how I take my notes and some good tips for taking pretty notes quickly. Firstly there is the title. Now this is going to sound very strange but I actually recommend writing the title last or later. Sometimes the title on the board ends up being the subheading so I normally wait until the end of the lesson to note it down. However, I like my notes to look neat so I actually write my titles at home which is something I will talk about a bit later on.
When I first started my blog, I did a post called 6 things you can do to be healthier; admittedly that was months ago and I've introduced quite a few new things to be healthier. The first one is green tea. I have been drinking this nearly every day (as and when I remember to). I am going to say that I hate the taste, but the changes it has made to my skin are worth it. It has kept my spots under control and they've not really got bad at any point since I've started drinking it. It hasn't got rid of them though so I'm still on a hunt to solve that problem. I just drink the ASDA brand green tea which is like 79p for a box, I think.
Now that exams are over and the summer holidays are approaching, you may find that you have plenty of time on your hands but not many things to do. Although the idea of sleeping all day... every day seems appealing, it can quickly get boring. So today I thought I would give you some things to do when you are bored. Organise a day out Leaving the house is the first step to socialising and not sit in front of the t.v all summer. Meet up with some friends, or family and do something whether it involves watching a film or going to the park. The activity doesn't even have to take the whole day, as being occupied for a few hours can quickly make the rest of your day more interesting.
I am constantly searching in my life for inspiration because even though you should be your own unique person, picking up good habits and following good lifestyles that have worked for other people can work for you to. Inspiration is there to inspire you, just like a trend.
It’s never a bad thing to be organised. In fact, organisation can help your life run quicker and smoother. For me, I need to be organised to get things done whether it be homework or other little jobs. I have had a long battle with organisation and I think in my most cluttered year, I have finally reached an “agreement” with it which seems to be working for the both of us.
Sometimes there's just piles and piles of work that need doing. Every time you plough through the pile, more seems to keep stacking up. That's how I feel right now. Buried under revision for these exams. It's ironic that a few days ago I wrote about revision and now I'm ripping it apart in this post. There is a such thing as "over-revising", trust me! You feel tired all the time despite getting 8 hours of sleep every night. You feel like you keep zoning out and your eyes keep closing when you look at words. If you're experiencing these dreadful symptoms, you've been pushed to the limit. Sit back, relax and let me guide you out of this mess.
As I mentioned in my "how to stop procrastinating" post, exams are right around the corner. So I thought it might be useful to write about some revision techniques to help you revise. Message of this blog: there are so many different revision techniques so if you don't get along with one, try something else.
