the last week has been less productive in some ways but majorly productive in others. i emailed my councilor and one of my professors about some things i’ve been worried about and got them resolved. i’ve been doing way more yoga lately, and i can can feel that i am improving parts of my body that needed the extra strength. i have been kinder to myself this week and feel that things are falling into place
You are under no obligation to make your notes look pretty.
A lot of study channels/accounts on youtube and instagram (i think tumblr is pretty chill with notes and don’t rlly care if your pics are aesthetic or not) always make their notes look very pretty, and sometimes even say that it helped with studying. I don’t exactly think that is true.
I tried to make my notes look very pretty in year seven, and honestly it didn’t work out for me personally. I would do those fancy highlighter titles, and all that. But, I found that I wasted more time on looks than how effective (for studying) my notes were.
Like, if it actually helps you then that’s great. Sometimes, pretty notes make studying fun. But we need to stop acting like it’s going to help everyone. My friend at school writes super messy notes but they aren’t doing bad at all. A girl in my class does really pretty notes and she doesn’t do bad either.
We all need to understand that everyone is different and will learn things differently. There isn’t one right way to make your notes look good, as long as they are easy for YOU to process (because they are YOUR notes) then they’re good study notes. We also need to take into account affordability and time. Like a lot of people don’t have the time to make their notes look like an artwork, and a lot of people may not be able to afford expensive, good quality highlighters and notebooks.
So, we all have different preferences. And that’s why I like the studyblr community on Tumblr. I feel like here we aren’t under a huge obligation to make our notes and our pictures look pretty. It’s pretty chill here. So I feel like it should be there on all social media.
🇲🇽 Continuando con el estudio, en esta ocasión con los temas más básicos de español, sobre estructura gramatical.
En verdad es un tanto surrealista estudiar estos temas cuando se está a punto de comenzar un posgrado en Ciencias, pero sin duda hay un par de cosas que daba por sentadas y no las recordaba del todo, creo que no las había estudiado desde hace más de 10 años.
🇬🇧 Continuing with the study, this time with the most basic topics of Spanish, on grammatical structure.
It is really a bit surreal to study these topics when you are about to start a master's degree in Science, but there are certainly a couple of things that I took for granted and didn't quite remember, I don't think I had studied them for more than 10 years.
I’m revising again for some exam i want to take in order to work for the Government which is something where i could see myself right now. It’s actually fun right now but also kind of hard because it’s all in french and it’s my weakest language...
I started off today pretty productively - with an early morning library sesh and then I had classes. I’m doing neuroanatomy rn and we had to brush up on the osteology of the skull to make sure we have a decent base to work with. Ahhh i feel like neuroanatomy will be really interesting to cover but also a paaain to fully understand and memorise.

I’m so excited to announce that I just made a 92 on my Unit 3 test, which means I’ve only made A’s and B’s in fundamentals this semester which is a major contrast from last semester. With Unit 1’s exam, I made an 86 and on Unit 2’s exam, I made a 90.
As much as I was resentful at first, being forced to redo level 1 after being so close to passing (less than a point), I have learned way more this semester and this will give me a solid foundation to stand on as I advance into the other levels. I just hope I pass the Pharm final, Unit 4 Fundamentals exam and then the big Fundamentals final so I can make it through to level 2. I’m going to work my behind off to ensure my success because I’ve never wanted to do anything more than nursing. As challenging as this program has been, especially with all of the COVID complications, I still want to push through and become the best nurse I can. I just hope I’m strong and smart enough to do so.
Ok, I change my mind. I don't like my supervisor. She told me that I need to do an empirical experiment for my paper, but the thing is, I don't have to do it for my bachelor's thesis. Actually, it's recommended not to do it because it’s too complicated and time-consuming for a mere bachelor paper. So I pointed it out, she even said it herself in her first email, but it seems like she’s forgotten about it now. Now she’s telling me that she only agreed to supervise me because of the empirical experiment and I'm like????????????
