Spring break is finally over for me (but it’s probably starting for some of you!). While I finally had the time to relax, breathe a little, and think about something other than college for a week
(but not that much, since I was basically working non stop), I also know that I don’t have any motivation whatsoever to go back. I wish the semester was over already! Seem familiar to you? So here a few tips to avoid midsemester burnout and stay sane during the semester!
Productivity is one the things I struggle most with. Especially around finals, I can’t seem to find proper motivation! And even once I find it, I can seem to get anything done. I sit at my desk with the best intentions, and before I know it, a 10-minute study break turns into an hour of reblogging stuff on Tumblr. Needless to say that I don’t get anything done while doing that.
So I decided to share with you a few tips that help me to be more productive. Hopefully they will help you too!
With Spring break coming, you’re more than likely to finally have some extra time on your hands. Even if you might want to take that time to get some advance on your schoolwork, you also need to reward yourself for all of the hard work done during the semester. One of my favorite ways to relax is watching my favorite shows on Netflix. I cannot be more grateful that I finally indulged in getting myself a subscription!
I am not sure whether Netflix is actually the best thing that has happened to me or if it ruined my life…
This is actually sort of a TV Show Recommendation masterpost. I’m not going to include TV shows that I’ve mentionned in this series before, so go read my previous posts if those interest you! (because they’re all totally bingeable too)
Read about How To Get Away With Murder, Once Upon A Time, Shameless US and Quantico.
I am a big Marvel fan. So when I heard that they were coming out with a Black Widow novel, I was off the roof! Natasha Romanoff is one of my favorite characters, and I think she’s fairly underrated. We didn’t get to hear much about her background story through the movies she’s been in, so I was really excited to finally read a book about her.
I asked for it this Christmas, and my sister was nice enough to give it to me! The first thing I loved about it is the gorgeous cover. I mean, look at that! Doesn’t that look like a great book?
Natasha Romanoff is sent to stop a big operation involving her old teacher, Ivan Somodorov, the evil man behind the Red Room. While dismantling Ivan’s base of operations, she saves a little girl, Ava Orlova, in the process. Ava has tried to reach out to her saviour ever since, but the Black Widow is not really the big sister type.
Eight years after that night, when children start disappearing again in Eastern Europe, Natasha knows her old teacher has returned. But what she didn’t know is that she would need the help of Ava Orlova to stop him.
Studying is one of the most important parts of college. You will spend many hours of your college days doing just that, like it or not. Your academic success depends on it.
But, are you studying correctly? Many students from high school head into college with absolutely no idea how to study for an exam. If you want to succeed, you have to have some study techniques to help you out!
In this spirit, I gathered the best study tips to help you ace your college exams!
