Heyyo!! So being a high school student has its trial and tribulations. It's not all fun and parties like the movies make it out to be (and if it is, well I'm not that kind of person to be turning it up on a Monday). I recently found this post on tumblr that I thought was interesting because it revolves around studying. It is a 30 day challenge where you have to post something every day for a month of something about studying.
Recently, I have gotten into the studyblr side of tumblr and am following probably more than 50 blogs all of people taking photos of their study sessions and it really is motivating. I would love to start this challenge on the first of November, but because I did not see it until now, I will have to play a bit of catch up. :) I hope one of you come along with me and do the challenge too, and help each other out if we end up slacking ;p
Here are the challenges:
Day 01: Find something that inspires you to hit the books.
Day 02: Clean up and organize your study area.
Day 03: Add an extra half hour to your study time today.
Day 04: Make 10 flashcards for a subject of your choice.
Day 05: Write a page of notes that has at least one diagram or flowchart.
Day 06: Make yourself a nice cuppa of whatever.
