I know it might seem surprising to see a new post from me since I have been gone for months. However, I am back and can’t wait to share the things that are going on in my mind with you this year!
Happy New Year, let 2017 be the best year of your life yet!
As usual, I have been super busy with uni and a new chapter in my life abroad. It took all my time and energy, and to be honest, I didn’t feel that creative back then either.
Although, I gained a lot of amazing new friends and made some great memories last year, which I am thankful for.
My birthday was possibly the best ever yet, thanks to all the people who made it beautiful. Also, my festive feels started in October and didn’t stop until after Christmas – coming home for winter break was definitely part of that, too.
Living in Denmark is very nice so far, I really like being there. I am going back soon and hopefully end the first semester with highs, so I can start the second one being content.
That’s it for now, I hope you have a wonderful day! :)
Since I’m in the middle of finals (I still have all my oral exams left), I thought it would be a great idea to give some tips on how to actually survive the exam period as I find it really tough myself, too.
My first and most important tip is to sleep loads. Really, just rest a lot, because you don’t want to start your day tired and all that – you must be energized to focus on studying or during the actual finals. So sleep, please!
Try to keep short breaks in between preparing for your exams, because it keeps your brain active and you won’t be exhausted very early. It helped me a lot and I only started to do this recently, because I didn’t believe that even a 5-minute break can help to be more focused on studying. But it really did.
Organize the amount of stuff you want to memorize day by day, so you won’t panic a day before your actual finals. Start preparing relatively early, if you can!
Prioritise! School before Youtube and books! This is one that I really struggle with, but I know I have to have school as my first priority during this period. How I manage to get things done is that I think of the summer holidays and that each day they get closer and closer. You (and I) are going to survive finals and be awesome at them!
Be as optimistic as you possibly can! I am generally a pessimist and I hate that. But during exams I try to be as positive as possible, because if you believe you can do it, then it’s already a half win. The other half is up to how hard you study for finals. If you’re confident, you’re more likely to achieve a better performance – and just think about: You did everything you could up to this point, now it’s up to luck, really. Everything you can do when your finals arrive is to be calm and confident, then you’ll rock it!
These are some of my tips on how to survive this very stressful period. I hope I could help at least some of you! I definitely need some motivation sometimes, so I’m sure it always comes handy. Don’t stress and you’ll be fine! (I’ll try to think of this sentence, too when the time finally comes, because I’ll need it.) My advanced English oral exam is at the end of this week, I’m really nervous, but I’m being optimistic. Have a lovely day! See you soon! :)
I have been lost for a long time, I know. Sorry about that, but I have been very busy lately and I have lots of tests which I have to prepare for. Literally, this is my only day when I don’t have to study for anything. My weekend will be spent with studying, which is not cool. I can’t wait for summer! I have to do lots of projects for school, too, which is like the worst thing for me, because I’m very uncreative and generally bad in these kind of things. Hopefully, by the end of next week I’ll have some days when I can relax a bit, so that I could bring a proper post for you. School stresses me out and the teachers expect so much from us, students, that I have no life beside school around this time. And I’m not even a senior. So my weekend I will write some essays and study a lot again. As I have done throughout the last couple of weeks. I feel like I’m just rambling now, sorry.
It’s also getting warmer here in my city, which actually makes me sad. I don’t like warm weather, I have always been someone who preferred winter and cold a lot more. I feel like being warm is a lot worse, because you can’t do anything about that, really, while if you’re cold, then you can layer your clothes. But I love summer, mainly because there’s no school, so we get to go on holidays and relax, which I enjoy very-very much. Continue reading I Have Been Lost→
