How to make studying fun

blonde-girl-gril-studying-school-studies-Favim.com-344722

Hey babes! Long time no talk!! Life has been crazy and I promise just give me a little bit to my life together LOL! I have really been learning how to study right, but it isn’t always fun so I have discovered a few techniques to help make studying less painful!

 

  1. KEEP MOVING EVERY 2 HOURS

I don’t have ADHD what so ever, but you still get antsy if you are sitting in one place for too long! I have discovered my four places to study that work best for me! My room, Outside patio, Starbucks, and Panera! All four of these places are my go-to’s! First I usually start by prepping everything in my room and after 30-1 hr I go outside! I stay outside for about 2 hours then I go get lunch typically at Panera and after 2 hours there I finish off with 2-3hrs at Starbucks with a Vente White Chocolate Mocha!!

2. Get a STUDY not “study” buddy

I personally study best alone and there is nothing wrong with that or with needing company! When others are around I find myself more susceptive to procrastination! If you are finding a study buddy then look for these 3 things…Productivity, Calmness, and Supportive! You may not find someone with all those characteristics, but at least find someone with one or more! Also if you are in college find someone with your same major!

3. Treat yo’ self

Every time you finish a never ending math problem or have been writing an essay on the philosophy of educational rights( yes thats my topic for the semester…pray for me) then take a small break and treat yourself! For example, when I am at Starbucks I get a bag of their popcorn because its SOOO GOOD! Anyways I treat myself to some whenever I finish sections! Its all about the right reward!

4. Get 6-8 hours of sleep

Now when it comes to college this might be an issue if you are out all night, but this doesn’t count towards that! If you have been studying all day and you have a test the next day or the next you need to make sure your brain is getting enough rest or else all the studying you did and little sleep you got might actually make you do worse then if you had slept!

Hopefully this helped some of y’all out! Lots of love!!

Then combine all your dry Ingredients into each other! Now Grab your Pumpkin purée, Vanilla, and oil and combine those as well!

Mix all the ingredients until they are all one color and have a batter look to them!

How to Start a Blog & Make Money!

How to start a blog

MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL

Hey babes! So as you all know I have really jumped into the youtube world, but of course I am going to s†ick to blogging! I think blogging is such an amazing platform for everyone, you don’t need a fancy camera, or even to be a great writer! If you are in college, and are going through a bunch of new amazing changes maybe creating a blog to document them would be a good idea! If you want it to be private you can always privatize your posts only for you!

Youtube has been so much fun, and definitely something I have been really working hard at! I don’t want to get distracted from blogging since this is what started my passion for these online platforms! I encourage everyone to find their niche, and if you love to write and photograph then try blogging! If you love to be on camera, and are into videography then try YT!

This is a sign to anyone who is wanting to start going after their goal, it doesn’t have to be blogging or YT, it could be cooking, fitness, modeling, literally anything…start pursuing it! Don’t wait until tomorrow, start today, start now!

For any of y’all that are interested to hear more about blogging I linked my newest youtube video above where I talk all about my experiences and how to make money while blogging!

Lots of love xo!

FALL BUCKET LIST

Forlorn-Bridge-during-fall

Hey Babes! So the other day I was watching my favorite youtuber, Kalyn Nicholson, she does more lifestyle videos( shes amazing, I love her) Anyways, She does this thing on youtube called youtober…you know…like October! The other day on one of her youtober videos she did a fall bucket list so she inspired me to create my own! I challenge all of you to just try mine or create your own and attempt it all before winter!

  1. Halloweentown Marathon– Halloweentown was my all time favorite movie series as a child during fall! I actually own them all and am one movie down two to go!
  2. Carve/Decorate Pumpkins– I love to carve pumpkins, but this year I want to make some really cute and chic pumpkins! So I will do those first and if I have enough time carve actual pumpkins!!
  3. Decorate for Fall– The other day while I was in Austin visiting my parents, my mom and I went to Target to get some Fall decor for our houses, and I got a few cute little things and I love the look it has given my room!
  4. Bake Pumpkin Something– Haha so I have never made pumpkin bread or pumpkin pancakes and i have been really wanting to attempt to make both, You don’t have to bake those, but I do recommend baking something!
  5. Haunted House– I love going to haunted houses and attractions like that, I am trying to figure out which house I want to go to! I am so excited!!
  6. Order a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte– Okay so I know this is basic, but I have NEVER had a pumpkin spice latte and I am finally going to get one this year!! I have always been to nervous to get one, but I am doing it!
  7. Sweater shopping– Nothing is better then putting on a cozy sweater while laying in a comfy cozy bed while shopping online for comfy sweaters!

 

Hopefully y’all got some inspo from this for your fall time festivities! lots of love!!

I bought these boots last year at H&M and they have been my holy grail! I have gotten so much use out of them! Every girl needs a pair of black over the knee boots in there closet!

Blogging will always be my first passion, but youtube is just bringing me so much inspiration that will reflect through here as well!

Thank you so much for the endless love and support! Prayers going out to Las Vegas today! This post is dedicated to all of the wonderful people that lost their lives!
