book review || The Witch’s Daughter by Paula Brackston 
Check out my July Wrap Up A bit formulaic, but I didn’t mind that. I liked the tie ins to major historical events like the plague, Jack the Ripper, and WWI. However, Elizabeth didn’t have much personality past the first timeline, making it difficult to connect with her as a character. I was pleased enough with the ending, that I have no urge to pick up the second book in the duology. CW: Rape

14/04/21 - 2-4/100
The last few days have been filled with zoom lectures, journal clubs and tutorials. I've barely been able to motivate myself to go outside and do something for myself (that doesn't involve watching charmed, again 😅) but I'm making an effort to do small things. Like enjoy the sunset from my window and making my notes look somewhat pretty.
Things I want to get done (or at least start) before the end of the week:
Read my journal club papers (psychiatric neuroscience)
Watch prerecorded lecture (multivariate statistics)
Read journal club paper (multivariate statistics)
Prepare tutorial (modeling metabolism)
Prepare tutorial (psychiatric neuroscience)

series review || The Shadow and Bone Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo 
Shadow and Bone 
This Was Fine -- January Wrap Up || 9 books!
This was fine. That’s about it. This read like a ya fantasy from 2010 and that’s basically what it is. Alina was pretty boring to me as the main character, I had no investment in the love triangle, and the ending was… sudden and very open.
However, I liked the Russian based world-building we received. I’m intrigued by the magic and power structure we’ve seen. The Darkling character was also my favorite because he was the most interesting. Sure, he's not a great guy, but I like how he’s written. Honestly, I want this story to be focused on him.
Siege and Storm
This Was Kinda Painful -- February Wrap Up || 10 books! This…. Was painful. Honestly, can we just get rid of all the romance drama? It made this book nearly unbearable. Nikolai was the only character I liked. No, scratch that, he was the only thing that kept me going. When the action started off in the beginning, I was hopeful that this would be a fast-paced book, but lord did it drop. I skimmed the majority of the middle because it mostly consisted of Alina making stupid decisions left and right, while Mal brooded, then vice versa. I thought the action at the end would reinvigorate me, but no, it just made me wish we had more on-page time with The Darkling.
Ruin and Rising 
I think this was my favorite of the Shadow and Bone trilogy. This was a fun adventure story and had the best pacing overall, with lots of action throughout, rather than only the beginning and end. Also had the most time with the most enjoyable characters, all the sidekicks. I was, once again, annoyed every time romance came up but managed to push through. The ending climax, however, left a bitter taste in my mouth.

Day 17 of 60 Days of Productivity
so i kinda took an unplanned day off yesterday and i think it really helped and today i am going to try to really make some progress on some of my english work. personally i find english the hardest to revise because it never feels like i’ve done enough and it is such a broad subject to cover.
anyway, i’m pretty proud of today’s notes because they definitely turned out better than i picture in my mind! the title is definitely not perfect and there are a few letters that just would not cooperate but considering this was my first time doing this sort of font style i’m really pleased with it!!!

How To Study When You Really Don’t Want To
Active Revision Techniques
How To Do Uni Readings
How to Revise BIG Subjects
Non-Stop Studying
The Problem
You find a comfortable spot to study and refuse to move ever again. You don’t even think about taking a break—that would be a waste of time and your due date is super close so you can't afford to do that
The Solution
Whether you’re doing this because you think it’s efficient or because you left everything until the last minute, you’re not going to learn much. Our brains need rest time to process information. Planning ahead is the key here. Instead of focusing only on your deadlines, work backwards and figure out when you need to start working on a project. Take into account how long each part of the work will take you. You’ll feel less overwhelmed and more able to actually learn the material, as opposed to just cramming. If you’re really in a pinch (hey, it happens to everyone), try out the pomodoro method: 25 minutes on, 5 minutes off, with a longer break every 4 circuits. It holds off exhaustion and keeps you feeling refreshed over long periods of heavy work!
Over Highlighting
The Problem
You try to study by reading the textbook, but somehow end up highlighting everything and remembering nothing.
The Solution
Turns out, passively re-reading a textbook is pretty useless. Just because you’re holding a highlighter doesn’t mean you’re actually engaging with the material. Learn how to read actively by taking notes as you read, which will force you to decide what parts of the reading are worth remembering. Come up with practice questions or make flashcards. The more of the 5 senses you use in your studying, the more likely you are to remember the information. If your exam includes an essay portion, think about what kinds of themes your professor might ask about and make some possible outlines. Even if your practice questions don’t actually show up on the exam, you’ll be in the right headspace!
Multitasking 
The Problem
You are studying at the same time that you are watching the newest show on Netflix, texting a friend about what happened last Tuesday and cooking a three-course meal.
The Solution
People are actually really bad at multitasking. While we think we’re focusing on 2 things at once, we’re actually switching between 2 tasks very rapidly, meaning that our brains never have time to fully adjust to working on either one. Unfortunately, the only way around this one is to plan ahead (weird how that keeps cropping up). Make a study schedule ahead of time and figure out which days you’ll devote to which subjects. You’ll be able to process the material more efficiently than you would if your attention was split between tasks, and ultimately you’ll have more confidence in what you’ve learned.
Solo Studying 
The Problem
You only ever study in solitude and refuse to ask anyone else for help.
The Solution
Studying on your own is fine (sometimes even preferable), but having people you can bounce ideas off of can be insanely helpful (even over Zoom!). Convince a friend or family member to let you “teach” them the material—the gaps in your understanding will become more obvious when you try to explain a topic to an uninformed party. If you have no one available, you could even teach to a pet or toy. Most importantly, take advantage of your professors or teachers and contact them if you’re confused about something. You won’t regret it.
Studying Chronologically
The Problem
You sit down to revise for an exam and you look through all of the notes from your class in chronological order.
The Solution
In addition to being a very passive study strategy, it also puts you at risk of running out of time to review the material you learnt most recently, which is often emphasised more heavily on the final exam and can also be some of the most difficult concepts to master – especially for classes like math and languages that increase in difficulty throughout the semester. You will also probably be reviewing information you already know. Instead of studying in chronological order, try studying in priority order, spending the majority of your time on the information that will be most important for you to know for the test.
Memorising, Rather Than Understanding 
The Problem
You know that you need to know facts in an exam so you study by trying to memorise all of the facts from a class, rather than truly understanding the underlying concepts. 
The Solution
Memorising can work well in some classes, especially in earlier stages of school, but it often backfires in more advanced classes. If you’ve memorised a definition but don’t really understand what it means, then as soon as the information is presented in a slightly different format, or you’re asked to apply it to a new type of problem, you will have no idea how to proceed. Rather than memorising the information from your classes, use study strategies that encourage you to understand it. Explaining ideas out loud in your own words, or teaching them to someone else, are great examples of study strategies that promote understanding.
Not Practicing How You’ll Be Tested
The Problem
You have a study method that you use for all of your exams no matter the subject or the format of the exam. 
The Solution
It’s great to have a study method that supports your revision but often they can be limited to specific skills. For example, flashcards might be a great strategy for a test that is mostly multiple-choice and matching questions, but they might be less useful for essays. If you want to be prepared for your exams, you need to make sure that the way you are studying for your test is similar to how you will actually be tested on the material. The best way to do this is by doing practice questions. Numerous studies have shown that students who test themselves on the material they are learning remember the information better than students who do not take practice tests. Practice testing also helps you avoid “illusions of competence”: situations in which you think you know the information better than you do. 
Not Using Active Revision Techniques
The Problem
You study by re-reading over your notes or perhaps rewriting them. 
The Solution
Unfortunately, this approach to studying is not very effective, in large part because it is extremely passive. Students who use this approach will readily admit that they can read over a page of notes and not remember what they have just read! If you don’t remember it right after you’ve read it, how could you possibly hope to answer questions about it on the test? Choosing more active study strategies that require you to engage with the material will enable you to learn the material more effectively and efficiently. This includes: mindmaps, flashcards, past papers, study groups, and many more.

now that i have a little more spare time, i’ve been rereading romeo and juliet! my ninth grade english class “performed” it and i played mercutio, indicating my gender confusion much earlier than i would’ve liked. reading it again is bringing back some good memories, but i’m also understanding more than i did when i first read it. 
how’s everyone’s april going? finals approaching soon? i wish you all luck!!

Some badly handwritten notes from organic chemistry revision lecture that I took today.
I am progressing in my chemistry subject but I still feel like I can do more with every passing day. Also Ramadan is starting in a couple of days and idk how am I going to manage studies while fasting. If anyone has any tips, feel free to tell me. Although I am taking notes from a few resources and planning a different schedule for the month.

I went to the beach today and there's just something about the salty air that soothes my soul.
I feel so refreshed that I decided to start a 100 days of productivity to pull myself through the last of this year, let's see how long that sticks 😂

today definitely could have been better for me, but here i am thinking if i should take a gap term after finishing this one cos i'm burnt out and exhausted. doesn't help either that professors don't seem to be very compassionate towards their students. quite crazy when they go "i know there's a covid-19 surge and uni shouldn't be your #1 priority right now, i hope you guys stay safe. but btw here's 4 readings due next meeting." nonetheless, i was able to force myself to be productive today so i guess that's a good thing! and hey, have you guys listened to fearless (taylor's version)? if not, you definitely should!!!! been having a ts party every day since it came out!! anw so sorry for this mini rant, i hope you guys had a better day than i did <3

After over a year of virtual learning, I finally went back to school this week! We’re still on laptops cuz about half of the school decided to stay home, but it’s been great actually getting to see and interact with my teachers and friends. My physic’s teacher gave us a test on our first class back tho, lol
Also, I got my first vaccine yesterday! I’m so happy I was able to get an appointment, and have had no side effects (other than a slightly sore arm)

a soft, slow, scattered sunday for the things i want and have to do-- which includes reading for my credit, civil procedure, and labor classes. but i’ll sit in the sunlight and dream for a bit. last week was so exhausting to the point that it took me about 3 days of naps to recover, but i’m ready to meet what this week brings. 🌷🌷🌷

so i took yesterday off from revision and i think today i’m still going to take it easy. i’m not entirely sure what i’m going to do yet but it’s definitely not going to be you know writing a load of essay plans or doing past papers cause i just don’t feel up to that... i think i might just write some pretty notes as something that is easy but still means i’ve accomplished something
