thursday, apr 15 • an incredibly belated moving vlog! via 98ths
it took me 4 months of living here to muster up enough energy and motivation to finish this, and i think my main driving thought was: “u gotta have something to document this piVOTal time in ur life before u move out” LOL. honestly, i’m pretty content with how this turned out (even though it’s not really like the super artsy cute high production youtube videos i’ve seen of other apt vlogs) because i really feel like i can rewatch this in the future and remember what it was like to move into my first ~*adult*~ apartment uwu hehe
also I GOT MY FIRST VACCINE SHOT TODAY WOOOOO 🎉

Happy Tuesday y’all! Here’s some old excerpts from my book and also of my school’s tennis courts a few years ago! I’m sorting out my camera roll from my old phone so my new one won’t be cluttered and I came across these gems! I haven’t played tennis for two years now and I really miss it, but there aren’t a lot of people around to play with and I’m unsure of my skills now, haha. As for life updates, I’ve been trying to relax and not think of the future too much as it’s simply unhealthy and also trying to get through everyday with positivity and gratitude. 
Also, over the weekend, I caught up with the recent TFATWS episode and, yes the rumors are true; it was crazy and I absolutely didn’t vibe with that ending. I was literally screaming the whole time. A certain character is lowkey irritating me. However, I also watched Interstellar for the first time (yes, I know it’s such an iconic movie, but for some reason, despite being a space enthusiast, I never found the need to watch until this year) and, wow, that film was beyond incredible. I literally get chills thinking of it. What a masterpiece. I’m no longer the same person as I was before watching it, period. I hope the week has started nicely for y’all and you’re taking care of yourselves!! 🤍✨

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.

I have done most of the research in preparation for my 3,00 word Sarte essay and am making an attempt today to start typing it out. I'm writing about the problem of others and Sartre's solution, its a detailed and complicated topic so I'm hoping that the aspects I am focusing on are not too surface level and will get me a good grade still. I have gotten firsts in all my marked essays so far for this term (I didn't get any for my topics last term but I think I have done well on the other this term that are yet to be marked) and since this essay is 70% of the Sarte module I'd love to get a first for this as well. I will be happy with a good 2:1 though and structuring and writing this essay I think will be tougher. Unfortunately I cannot go over the structure with my DDS study skills supervisor as she is on leave for a while and I need to have the bulk of this essay done before she is back in order to leave time for my dissertation. 😭😭 I'm pretty stressed out to be honest but thankfully I am at least finding the content and research interesting...
Today is the day that in the UK outdoor dining and non essential shops are open again! It's lovely but also having people want to meet up and go places when I have so much to do over the next month is allot so I am trying to balance and make sure I don't sacrifice my work. Thankfully the date when indoor dining etc is due to open up again is after my dissertation deadline when I won't have any mandatory work left to do (I will still have a few meetings and have signed up to a three day summer course but this won't be so stress inducing).
