Please, feel free to print the table I made for myself for the first week, very Tumblr (ish).
1-lets go little by little, but putting effort on this!
2-participation is key. Make teachers happy, and they will make YOU happy. I am already seeing difference in that aspect and I barely asked two questions!
3-WRKTE. EVERYTHING. DOWN. I’ve posted a table that you can use to see your progress here .
Week one was a total catastrophe. I have just finished my final tests for the second term (I still have one to finish school, the one when I want to change!). I was SL tired I could almost get up every morning to go to school without a ton of coffee. Thank God my dad is a nice human being and makes my breakfast before I go downstairs.
Anyway: here are my impressions on the first week.
*AVOID FORGETTING HOMEWORK: it worked just fine! I recommend the app I said on last post : my study life, available for Android. It’s simple so you don’t waste to much time on it and it’s also very clear and has a calendar, a class timetable, it allows you to log your exams and to create revision tasks for them, apart from the obvious homework use. So I didn’t forget any homework during the week.
Again, if you prefer another app or using a paper agenda, it’s fine! I just get lost with my paper one. Tell me your experiences in the comments!
*AVOID “FORGETTING” HOMEWORK: I want so lucky on this one. I did all my homework every day except on Monday! I simply was too tired, so Ihave no excuse
*PAY ATTENTION IN CLASS: It certainly was hard, especially in math, but I think I did it. I even asked once in Spanish class, and spoke out in chemistry. I should have probably been more active in math, but it was only the first week!
*DONT BE A MESS: b**ch please. I have actually been cleaned and tidier than I have ever been! Just take a look at this:
See? You do t really have to be as incredibly beautiful as most Tumblr pictures out there. Those are goals, but let’s go step by step. Just write something that you and the teacher can read.
See? You don’t have to be as goals as most studyblr blogs out there, just write in a way that both you and your teacher can read. Studyblr will arrive in its time!
*BE ACTIVE IN CLASS AND AT HOME: Well. This part wasn’t so great maybe. But, as I said, I have barely had any homework or important classes: we are watching two movies, reviewing and doing exercises in class…Thatslrt kf things.
There you go. My experience this past week. Tell me yours!!!
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!
