As a special thanks to everyone who has been following this site, I present to you a Printable Weekly Schedule Template! I’ve created it with the help of a certain talented someone and am eternally grateful for all his help. For now it’s only available in monochrome colors, but come 2015, we’ll post them in a variety of color schemes.
I am thinking of creating an Etsy page to post similar digital planners. The idea right now is to create printable note sheet templates for language, science and math classes, weekly schedules and college planning pages. What do you all think? Let me know if you have any requests/suggestions/questions and I’ll make sure to put them to action!
Of course, my fellow followers (social media and email!) will receive a promo code to get one for free as soon as it’s available. Here’s a little preview:

Who has never binge-watched several seasons of Netflix shows in one night? I can’t say I haven’t, as this is my perfect way of procrastinating, aside from exploring Tumblr and trying to figure out this blogging stuff. TV is a great way to sit down and unwind after a long day, although I do feel very unproductive when there’s lots of homework to do. Nevertheless, you should always allot time for yourself to relax . Here I present to you my most recent Netflix faves, in no particular order.
1. Gilmore Girls.
Yep, I’ve mentioned it in my last post, but I’ve been getting pretty hooked on Gilmore Girls. It seems like such a simple show to watch, with very light drama and not much information to process, and it’s perfect for some crafting background. I can really relate to Rory in her academic pursuits and habits, although I still have some room for improvement.
2. Arrested Development.
My favorite show on Earth, up to maybe the fourth season. From now on, every line and joke from the show is a reference to any life situation. Easy to watch and with clever humor, Arrested Development is my go-to show when I can’t decide on what to watch. Me on any test now:
3. Parks & Rec Leslie Knope inspires me to achieve great things, period. Also, I would like to have Ron Swanson’s mustache and be literally as positive as Chris Traeger. Let’s enjoy this for a minute (or a few hours!).
4. Orange is the New Black
A little bit more serious and at times quite intense, Orange… is the show I go to when there’s not enough drama going on in my life. At one point I did binge watch a season and a half of it, but then things just kind of died down when things got crazy there. However, I’m still planning on finishing the second season soon. Probably around finals time next quarter.
My little sister and I finished watching 8 seasons of Psych in probably less than 3 months, and that’s during a school year. It seemed like a great show to watch in the evenings, and even she was able to understand the jokes. Now every pineapple reminds me of Psych, somebody please help.
What shows do you guys watch? I’m almost done with Gilmore Girls, need something else as a back-up!!
Before I tell you the whole procedure, I’d like to note that this quarter was one of the most important quarters in my college career (so far). The thing is, there is a certain GPA requirement to get admitted to the Psychology Major. It’s not very high, but various past circumstances have forced me to retake a class to raise the GPA. That wasn’t fun, obviously, but I will talk about that later sometime. The point is, raising the GPA takes a lot of effort, and this quarter was extremely stressful because of that, since my admission to the major depended on it.
I must say now that I did pretty well – scores above average, and good enough to raise the grades suitable for the admission. Three finals in a row wasn’t super fun, though, and it took me a lot of effort to get organized. Here’s what I did:
1. Create a study schedule and follow it.
I know this one is a little obvious, like you would have totally thought of that without me saying it for the millionth time. I’ve written a few posts about this, you can check them out here: How to Make a Study Plan, Make a Study Guide.
2. Use every free minute.
I think my scores definitely had some room for improvement, and I definitely had enough time to study for it. My laziness and procrastion got in the way, unfortunately, and I now regret every minute I spent watching Gilmore Girls instead of studying.
3. Prepare your snacks!
I don’t know about you, but to me it seems like the more studying I have, the more hungry I get. Is it because I’m secretly bored or maybe my stomach is trying to distract me? I don’t know, but having some snacks and a cup of hot tea nearby creates a more comfortable and cozy setting for me.
Probably the most important thing you can do to get all your energy (large dozes of caffeine excluded). Most teenagers and adults need at least 8 hours of sleep every night, and not getting all of them takes a toll on your test performance. Here are some more posts about that: The True Value of Sleep, The Power of Naps, No More All-Nighters
5. Actually study.
Here it is, the mistake that brought me to failure to many times. Just kidding, I’ve never failed any subject really, but I’ve definitely received scores below the ones I’ve expected. As easy as it sounds, studying doesn’t mean simply rereading the textbook or your notes. This quarter I tried to do all the practice problems assigned and quiz myself as much as possible. This technique is called active recall, which works when you retrieve the information from your memory so many times that it actually stays there. Read about it here: About Memorization. There are several Memory Techniques you can use to make the best of your study time as well.

Next on my list of topics to cover is dealing with messy handwriting. It’s a common question among students, and I too understand the hardship. I’m no expert on the matter (although at one point I did relearn some cursive), so I decided to ask my best friend and calligraphy guru for some advice. Here I quote him:
“When it comes down to handwriting, unfortunately it’s all about effort. Your handwriting is definitely a large part of you and is a representation of you as an individual. As you progress through life your handwriting will evolve as you yourself evolve, but sometimes it’s just not up to par with what you expect. It takes lots of practice to change it, but it’s not impossible. It only takes a little dedication and the willingness to change. I once asked my friend how his cursive was so good. It was a very traditional cursive, not like half print half third grade cursive. It was like business cursive from the 1900s. And he told me that he taught himself. He was tired of his messy, illegible handwriting and decided to change it one day. So he started writing in cursive and kept at it until it was flawless.
But the easiest way to start writing a new handwriting is like learning a new calligraphy script. You work one letter at a time. You master A, both upper and lower case, then move onto B and so on. Once you know each letter you write the alphabet all the way through in upper and lower case. Use a sketchbook to write it all out. Your practice sheets end up looking really cool once you’ve filled every space with a letter.
After this start integrating this new handwriting in everyday life. If you take notes a lot, use this new handwriting as a heading or to emphasize a word. Be creative and just start using it. Soon you’ll be able to write it without thinking and then it will become a habit. And by golly wouldn’t you know it, you’ve improved your handwriting.”
So there’s some wisdom for us all. To get us started with changing our penmanship, here are some resources and inspiration:
1. If you are learning cursive, print this out and stick it somewhere where you’ll always see it when writing.
The other day I decided to sacrifice my Math Quiz Section in favor of three hours of pure study time for the finals. I must add, I do not regret this decision, as lately things with organization have been getting out of hand.
While studying for my upcoming Psychology final, which has just so many theories and hypotheses, I decided to go for making flashcards (these have some great advantages!) To make things a bit different this time, though, I put the definitions in my own words and added some comments relating to my life experiences, movies I’ve seen or songs I’ve heard. For example, one flashcard that came out looked like this:
From this experience, I realized that there are several things I need to do to make my flashcard-making time worth…my time. Because if you think about it, after spending hours (sometimes even days) drawing these up, how much do you actually study from them? I’ll be honest and say that I give up the second I put the pen down, thinking that making the flashcards was helpful by itself. So, if you are like me, I would suggest following these quick tips to remember more while making flashcards:
1. Paraphrase – always restate the key definitions in your own words. This is help you to actually think about the meaning of the words and remember them a bit better. Read more

When is it better to go to bed and when do we get the best quality sleep? After scouring the internet for hours, I’ve found that it’s best to go to sleep as early in the evening as possible. Multiple sources and studies (Check out this one and this one) have confirmed this, and I have made a little chart based on what I’ve found.
It is also important to consider how you natural body clocks work and the cycles that you sleep through (called the REM/Non-REM sleep cycles). I’ve written a little bit about those already (and here), but basically the key is to not interrupt your sleep. If you do have to wake up even though you haven’t gotten your recommended 8 hours, it’s alright as long as you wake up in between the 90-minute cycles. Here is how they look like if you go to bed at 10 pm :based on this schedule, it’s easier to wake up at 11:30, 1 am, 3:30 am, 4 am, 5:30 am, etc):
That being said, this doesn’t mean that you will feel as feel as if you slept the full night. This only implies that it will be easiest to wake up at those 90-minute increments. To feel fully rested, it’s best to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night.
If you are interested, here are some great apps I was recommended:
Sleep Cycle – a super fancy app that tracks your brain activity while you sleep, analyzes it and even works as an alarm. Available for iPhone and Android
Sleepy Time – doesn’t work as an alarm yet, but can calculate the approximate time when you have to wake up or go to bed based on what time you go to bed/wake up.
