How to Survive The Class That You Hate!

Getting by in your classes alone is sometimes hard! I used to be somewhat of a loner back when I was in a community college and now that I’m in my last year of uni these are somethings I have learned!ღゝ◡╹)ノ♡

  1. If you don’t have the motivation to go to class: Make friends fast!(੭ु。╹▿╹。)੭ु⁾⁾

The key to surviving classes (especially classes that you don’t like) is to make friends! This will help going to class be a better experience and therefore you will want to show up to class. Make friends with the people around you, spark up some conversations and try to have some fun while everyone tries to survive together!

2. Study Groups(˘∀˘)/(μ‿μ) ❤

It is important to not be afraid to get numbers! Being able to communicate to your classmates is important! If there are assignments, projects, and tests that you know are going to be hard, talk it out with the people next to you who are probably equally just as stressed out and want some help too. Creating a group chat is the best when it comes to getting help right away. Everyone has some kind of problem in any class, make sure to help each other out.

 

3. Planning(๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ

Planning out your semester, your month, your week, your day, down to the hour, to the minute is important! Not procrastinating on doing work that you hate is hard! we’ve all been in at least one class we absolutely hate and probably avoided the work like the plague. Try getting a planner or a school bullet journal and plan out everything! from the projects, to the tests, to the homework, to when you’re going to do it, and at what time you’re going to take breaks or reward yourself.  following your own schedule will help you break down what you will need to do for that class and hopefully it will feel like less is on your plate. When you feel like less is on your plate for this class you will feel less stressed leading to you doing the work instead of putting it off.

4. Ask for help!ヽ(・∀・)ノ

In high school our teachers might scare us into seeming like we are going to be completely alone in college and you’ll just have to deal with it, but no! A lot of the time your professors do want to help you! They want to see you succeeded and pass their class as much as you do! Ask them for help, go after class, show up to their offices hours, email them, anything! They are the ones that are going to give you that grade, might as well get advice and help from that source! You’ll know exactly what they are looking for and it will help you get through the class a lot smoother.

5. Tutors! 。・゚・(ノД`)ヽ( ̄ω ̄ )

There will always be tutors and extra help that will be provided for you…use them! They are usually for free and have pretty flexible hours. This is so handy! I used tutors for my Japanese language classes and they were always so helpful to the point I ended up getting all A’s for every single semester! If you have an important test coming up, take all your notes and whatever the professor has told you about the test to the tutor and have them talk everything out with you! Going over everything with another person will help you remember things, have more confidence in knowing that you know the answers, and help you pass that test!

6. No Such Thing As A Stupid Question! ╮( ̄ω ̄;)╭

Ask questions! I know so many times you can just get lost in what your professor is saying but just end up sitting there like “???(๑•́ ₃ •̀๑)” Then you just get up, pack your stuff, and leave╮(╯_╰)╭. While at home you start thinking to yourself…”so what was I supposed to do???( º﹃º )” and then end up stressing out! DON’T DO THAT! Ask someone, anyone! ask the person next to you what you just missed, ask the teacher if they could repeat what they just said or catch them after class. I can guarantee you someone had the exact same question as you did and will be relieved that you said something!

7. Talk to your Academic Advisor(ノ>ω<)ノ :。・:*:・゚’★,。・:*:・゚’☆

If you are really have problems with these classes, talk it out with your Academic Advisor. You can rant to your friends and family about that class to no end, but you won’t get the help or advice you would really need from them; that’s where your Academic Advisor comes in. they can provide you with special/extra help, they could provided you with alternative classes that you could probably take in place of that class, they could even help you plan out your classes before you take them so that you will have the classes you actually want. They know the details about most classes and professors so you won’t have to be stuck with a class and professor you don’t like in the first place. TRUST ME! they help so much, I would not have gotten by without my Academic Advisor!

8. Hate your Professor/ Not doing well at all? Drop The Class(*´ I `)ノ゚(ノД`゚)゚。

Sometimes things happen. You can’t always do good for every single thing. You’re human and that’s okay! If you are doing your best but you just can’t handle the work flow, or it’s just too hard for you, life is getting in the way, professor is pushing your buttons…drop the class. It will be better than taking the F. Just try not to do that every single time life gets hard. It is okay to withdraw from the class and to take the W instead of an F because it won’t mess up your GPA. But having too many W’s in your grade book does not look good either. It shows that you are not capable of finishing a lot of things and therefore will not be able to finish your work in the future (or so it will look). Only do this if you are absolutely about to fail the class.

I know that going to a University or even a Community College for the first time is scary but just know that everyone is there to help you. Do not be afraid to ask for the help you really need, especially if you cannot stand the class that you are in. ❤ (ɔˆз(ˆ⌣ˆc)

My 2019 Bullet Journal Layout and January Spreads

Hello everyone! How is everyone’s new year so far? My year started off pretty good when it came my bullet journal. I have learned a lot from my last bullet journal and I have eliminated some things here and there and added in some things here and there.

These are what I use on a daily for my journaling.

Sakura Pigma Micron pens 005-08

Muji Hexagonal pen in .25

An exacto knife

Tombow Hard Calligraphy Pens

White Gel Pen

 

A Year in a Glance:

img_9944img_9946img_9945

I added on a year in a glance page to my new bullet journal to start it off. I kind of wanted to to have some kind of overview of my year. It has been filling up slowly as this year progresses!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Next I have my 2019 Goal list. I plan to add more to it but so far this is what came to my mind.

Hello January!

I have decided to put in a monthly calendar overview for my 2019 bujo. So far I am loving it and I am going to continue to do this for the rest of the months!

Next, I put my Habit Tracker and my Mood Tracker in for this month. I love how everything is coming together for my mood tracker! Using my new washi tape was a good pick for this one. I think i will continue to use my washi tape for all of my monthly trackers.

January 1-2

I started the new month out with daily spreads but I though that would be consuming too many pages later on. I ended up switching to a weekly spread.

January 7th was my first day back to school. I was one hell of a day. I was sick to start things off and then I got into a little argument early in the morning. At the end of the day all was well, I talked things out with that person, and I got medicine for my sickness!

Back-to-School BUJO Spread, Stickers, and Hurricane Coming Close!

08.23.18. 1:58. PM.

Hello guys! I have updated my bullet journal for the new semester! I always change my spread right away when I go back to school because I don’t have time to be as creative as I want with my weekly spreads. I change it to be fast and efficient so I know what I have to get done and what if coming up next. tempImageForSave 14.JPG

This is my schedule! This is the first time I’ve had a day off in my schedule and it is a bit weird staying home in the middle of the week! I also but what supplies I will need for this semester at the bottom. Thankfully I have most of these supplies at home so it will save me a lot of money. tempImageForSave 16.JPG

I just had to put a quote here just to motivate me to start back up again, and to keep going! Always have mini notes to yourself to remind yourself to keep trying and to never give up! I know how hard it is to push yourself everyday throughout school but it helps to have a little bit of encouragement!

IMG_8803.JPG

This is the full spread. I will be sticking with kind of spread for the rest of the semester. It won’t be as fun or creative as I want it to be but it helps me out during school to keep things a little more simple.

IMG_8869.JPG

This is this week’s spread! I decided to put the calendar in the corner each time so that it will help me to realize how many days has past and how many more days I have left to go. It kind of helps me remember that I have gone so far and that I can count down the days until I finish and finished another semester!


 

I have created even more little sticker packets for my stickers!

IMG_8775.JPGIMG_8783.JPGIMG_8774.JPGIMG_8805.JPG

I’m pretty happy about how everything is turning out! Not many people are buying them though, but I won’t give up! I am still trying to post a new sticker design out every day. If not then I make sure to make some updates to my store here and there.

What do you guys think?

Do you guys think I should create more anime sticker or more planner/journal stickers?

Hurricane Lane is coming dangerously close the Hawaiian Islands! So far it is hitting the Hawaii Island (or as we call it: The Big Island) and it is heading towards Oahu (The island I am on) by tomorrow! I am not sure how badly this hurricane will be but it is looking pretty bad. Schools are closed for tomorrow and Friday already and it may stay in effect till Monday! I hope everyone stays safe! As for my Etsy shop, I will still be dealing with orders the best I can during this time but due to the hurricane, orders might be delayed for a few days. Meaning that your sticker might come a little late! I hope that is alright! I still want to keep my store running since it is just an online store and not a physical store. I will do my best to fulfill everyone’s orders if I get any during this storm! I have not experience a hurricane yet in my life. The last very major hurricane hit Hawaii before I was born so this will be my first experience. Hopefully everything will be okay. Right now it is just the calm before the storm!

Thank you for reading!

Memory Journaling, Shop Reviews, and Food

08.16.2018. 1:39. PM. 

I decided to get out of the house today! (The rarely happens). I decided to go out for some lunch and to create another page in my memory journal for 2017. I feel like keeping photos in my laptop is never enough and I have to just make a full journal out of it, so I really want to slowly create mini memory journals starting with the year: 2017.

My canon printer can print out 4 x 6 glossy paper, so I have made a little template for myself on photoshop to print out these little pictures.


Shop reviews

I really love when people are happy with their stickers!

tempImageForSave 10.JPG

My store hasn’t been doing so well this month so I was beginning to get a little discouraged but this review really helped me out. It made me realize that although I don’t have a lot of customers, the customers that I do have really appreciate my stickers. It really makes my day and helps me stay with what I love to do most which is to create my own art. Thank you everyone who is supporting me through IG, blogging, or my store, I really can’t thank you guys enough!


Bullet Journal Update 

School is starting on Monday for me, so I think I will go back to my minimal school bullet journal and show you guys that! I mostly change my bullet journal into more of a kind of planner because I am usually too busy to be super creative with the spreads.

I have been trying to come up with designs that are not just sticker designs for my Instagram while also trying to find my own art style.

Today’s Sticker Designs

 

08.13.18. 1:37. PM

Good Afternoon everyone!

Today I got more sticker paper so I decided to create another journal sticker design!

IMG_8375.JPG

I created these crystal and plants sticker designs! I was always a little scared to make these because crystals are hard to color in but I made it in my own little style. I hope everyone likes them! IMG_8376.JPG

I like to create stickers that has the doodle look to it so it is not perfect as if you just drew it in your journals!


My arm is feeling a lot better today! Normally I would keep drawing all day and come up with a little more designs but I think I should still rest up a bit.
