WEEK #2: STARTERS MENU

Ok, let me explain this it’s to add to last week’s tasks (you can print the table picture in the next post so you can check what you did and how you are improving). This week it will get a little more complicated, but there are less tasks, so all fine!!

*STARTING TIME: having a fixed routine will improve your study, and will also increase the time per day you devote to it.

HOW TO: Make yourself a study plan. It doesn’t have to be very elaborate (yet), maybe the starting times are enough. If you decide to go for something more elaborate, make sure you schedule the homework the same day the teacher told you to do it, because the lesson will still be fresh in your head, so  itvwill take less time from the work itself AND from the time you’ll use to study the lesson, because you will review it sooner.

If you want to do a more complete schedule, look HERE.

Also, obviously, FOLLOW IT! it’s a plan, so maybe change it a little bit if you don’t have anything to study for a particular subject, or if you have an exam for another one in the next few days. But YOU MUST start at the scheduled time, no excuses here. The idea is to create a routine of study, to spend more time working and less on your phone.

*PRACTICAL SUBJECTS: This one is going to be hard, especially if you hate math as much as I do. It’s not that big don’t like the subject, it’s that I have this little attention problem and I don’t seem to be able to copy numbers in the right order. So I always have mistakes in math/chemistry that lower my grades and blah blah. Anyway, those problems are supposed to go away with practise, which is why:

HOW TO: No matter if you tend to have more or less stupid mistakes, comprehension mistakes​ or just calculator dyslexia: practise those subjects. Depending on the length of the particular problems you are studying, do more or do less, but THERE SHOULD NEVER BE A DAY WHEN YOU DONT DO ANY. atvleast one a day. There are millions on the internet, so NO EXCUSES BABY!

(BTW that’s me motivating myself because…Yeh, imma have trouble with this task for sure)

And since these are pretty hard assignments, this will be all for the week. Now, do it! (Also, add it to last week’s work;) we can do it guys!)

WEEK #1: THE BEGINNER

Hey guys! Here’s our challenge for this week:

*AVOID FORGETTING HOMEWORK: ohhhh boy that happens to me very often, because I am way too lazy to write down what video have to do, or to find the piece of paper where I wrote it, or to ask one of my classmates.

-HOW TO: I have decided to find an agenda app that can syncronise between my iPad and my phone. That way, I won’t be too lazy to write my homework down in my school agenda. No, I have already discovered that writing the number of the exercise we have to do at the bottom of the notebook page doesn’t work unless you open the notebook. My personal recommendation to the moment: My study life, although I will be able to tell you more about it at the end of the week! Of course, if a paper agenda works for you, that’s great! It simply doesn’t for me!
*AVOID “FORGETTING” HOMEWORK: big NOPE. Thats cheating. That’s bad. You have your nice agenda! USE IT! NO EXCUSES! And teachers are not stupid: they know you are lying about your dog eating the ten chemistry exercises you had to give in.

-HOW TO: Easy: AGENDA! GET UP FROM THAT BED AND DO SOMETHING FOR YOUR FUTURE!!

*PAY ATTENTION IN CLASS: Sleeping in class may seem more interesting than listening to the teacher in some cases, but it’s not going to help you pass your exams. So get up and sleep at night. At least seven hours per day. Letting go of technology for one hour before bed is a good idea and it’s scientifically proven that it improves the sleep quality, but maybe we can wait a couple weeks for that task!

-HOW TO: Could it be more obvious?

Also, don’t be afraid to raise your hand and ask. The teachers will like it. Your marks will be higher. Win-win!

*DONT BE A MESS: I’m not saying you go from writing in your own language to becoming a studyblr type of person. I’m just saying that nice class notes will be easier to understand and nicer to read. They will have more appeal than ones you notvonly have to study, but to decipher.

See what I mean?

-HOW TO: Blegh. Obvious again.

And, last but not least:

*BE ACTIVE IN CLASS AND AT HOME: again, lying on your bed watching Netflix is nice now, but I don’t think your 30 year old self thanks you for it.

-HOW TO: In class: take notes. Or underline your book/handouts while the teachers talk. It will take a lot of work off later! In your house: if you don’t find yourself in the mood/need for study yet, at least read your notes/book, what you did today in class. Don’t try to read more if you don’t want to, but just reviewing what you did that day will help you see if you have any doubts, and some of itvwill stay in your kind, which will make studying the topic in depth later will be way easier.

There you go, that will be all for this week, just setting the bases for next one! Good luck and try to do everything!!!!

Come here to see my experience this week, and HERE for a table you can fill in to check how you did each day!
