Haha… so I haven’t sat down to write in quite some time. I believe that brings us to point numero uno. Priorities, gurllll. If I have a test in 2 days but I also haven’t written a post? Yeah… the test takes precedence. Unfortunately, I had at least one per week, so this lead to a rather sparse posting schedule.
But that’s not the point. I have a few little ~lifesaving~ tips for the best grades possible.
Number 1: motivation and time management. I follow a few “studyblrs” on tumblr… having them in your feed as you scroll mindlessly through tumblr will actually motivate you to study. I don’t know about y’all, but aesthetically pleasing pictures of handwriting and lattes makes me feel like I should be doing something productive rather than lie in bed. That’s prob just me though.
Number 2: Flashcarding the right way. You want your flashcards to be the most detailed and accurate as possible, right? Right. What you need to do is after EVERY lecture (or class for my little grade schoolers) make detailed flashcards on the info you just learned. This seriously helps. I mean you’re rewriting your notes pretty much which is super helpful I.M.O. Not to mention you’re getting super in depth cards. AND you won’t stress out three days before a test because you literally are making 20-40 cards max. Boom. OH and when I say “detailed” I mean, keep the cards straight and to the point so you can easily remember the answer, but make multiple flashcards on one topic- i.e., “Hemoglobin (flip) retains oxygen in a RBC blah blah blah” and on a separate flashcards “Hemoglobin carries ____ iron” you get the point.
Number 3: Study. do it. just get it out of the way. it takes 30 minutes. just do it. I promise you that you will stress so much less when a test is coming up. It just takes 30 minutes to relieve yourself of the sleep you should be getting pre-exam.
Lastly, you’re in college. Enjoy yourself responsibly. If you gotta test on wednesday, treat yo self to thirsty thursdays (if you’re into that. I prob would be rewarding myself with netflix, but I’m a homebody. No judgement if you are tho, let urself goooo).
Oh and if my grammar and punctuation sucks, it’s because I wrote this post in 10 mins and I have like 59 things due next week and pRIOritieZ k byeeeee
