It’s Finals Time – Top 3 Tips to Ace Those Exams

Hey everyone!

Finals start this week and I wanted to share some of my favourite tips for staying motivated and relaxed during this week. I think we all need to be told that we will survive and everything will be okay and you will survive this week.

1.Get Some Sleep

I think this is my favourite tip by far. Sleeping helps so much to keep you ready for the week. If you sleep better you’ll be more alert and ready to study or take that exam. I think this is self-explanatory on why you should be sleeping but I know how this week can get. Don’t bother with late nights trying to cram in everything last minute. Night time is for sleeping. Try and shoot for 7 to 9 hours of sleep.

2. Schedule Your Studying/Projects

Honestly, this was the best thing I ever did. Instead of staying up all night writing that 1000 word essay or studying till I can’t stay up any longer, I look at my schedule and dedicate time to doing everything. On Monday’s I have a 4-hour break so instead of going home or watching YouTube videos I do a big chunk of work. I wrote most of my 2 essays and got some studying done. (I also edited a video and wrote this blog post) This helps so when I get home I don’t have to do it all at home when I know I won’t want to.

3. Have a Visual Schedule

I made a video about this and it’s up on my YouTube channel. Briefly, I like to see when everything is due and when I have exams. This helps me sort out what is the most important thing to do and when to do them. You can see more about it here:

 

I hope this helps some of you guys. When are your exams? I would love to hear some of you guy’s tips!

What I Loved in February // 2018

Happy Monday everybody!!

I know surprise! I don’t usually upload on Mondays, but I thought I would make a blog post to go with my YouTube video. For all those who don’t know I post videos on Youtube every Monday at 9 PM eastern time. Today I am sharing all my monthly favourites. So let’s get into it.

Beats

I love my beats. I got them at the same time I got my MacBook. They’ve been featured a few times in a couple of other posts like “What’s in my Carry On??”. I decided to add them into this month’s favourites because I have been using them every day. They are the best for students. The sound cancellation is pretty good. I’m sure they aren’t the best headphones for it ever, but I do really like them. I feel like I can really focus at school because when they’re in I can’t see or hear anything other than my work. I have the Rose Gold ones but if you want to buy some similar you can get these Gold ones here: http://shopstyle.it/l/zJ61

YouTube

As much as I’ve always been a fan of YouTube I feel like this month I have taken a special care for it. I have been watching YouTube as a YouTuber and not as a fan or consumer. I was watching videos and taking mental notes on ideas for my own videos. I’ve been watching small channels lately too. I feel like there is a different atmosphere when you watch people that are still growing their channel. These people are in the same boat as me trying to build their career and hustling as hard as they can. Honestly, I really do suggest taking time to watch smaller accounts. You’ll be very surprised with what you’ll find. I actually talked to my boyfriend about this. We both agree that we find more genuine and interesting in smaller accounts. I think it’s because these are the people that are dedicated to their craft and are not just in it for the money.

Notebook

I love notebooks. I am a stantionary-aholic. I have a genuine problem. So, this should come to no surprise that I like taking notes by hand. I decided to create a notebook to start taking my blog from personal to business. I’ve been reading ever pin I can find and taking as many notes as possible. I am the worst note taker. I have notes all over the page. Checkmarks, boxes, crossed out things, I have it all. I am the only person who can read my notes. I highly suggest getting a notebook if you are really looking to be more serious about your blog or YouTube channel. I think paper is the safe option rather than leaving everything on a computer. Your computer can crash or lose files out of nowhere. Just do it! Trust me. If you liked my notebook in the video you can get a similar one here from Kate Spade: http://shopstyle.it/l/zJ7f

Perfume

This was in last month’s favourites. I’m sure you guys are sick and tired of hearing me talk about this perfume. Almost all my perfumes are from Bath and Body Works. I love their brand, it’s cruelty-free and always good quality. Everything always smells so good too. I have never been disappointed with any of their products. They have a few other scents in this range if this isn’t your favourite. I have the Rose scent. Be warned, this is a real perfume, it’s not like their other body mists. If you don’t know most of Bath and Body Work mists don’t stick to you very long. This one sticks to you for what feels like forever.

Jalapeno Cheetos

I think this is one of the most embarrassing favourites but if I didn’t share I wouldn’t be true to my monthly favourites. I love these Cheetos so much. I am sort of obsessed with them. I will eat a whole bag in two days. If you like spicy snacks this is for sure the one for you. I find food harder to explain because I never know what to say about it. It’s very unhealthy and I probably shouldn’t be suggesting this to anyone but they are so yummy.

The Best Studying Space!

Good evening everyone!

It’s almost mid-session for me which means I have so much school work I think I’m going to go crazy. I have been doing hours of homework while trying to maintain my blog and youtube channel. It’s been a lot of work.

I know that a lot of you guys are in the same boat as me. Exam season is coming and you need a place to study. I thought I would give you guys my top advice on study spaces.

I usually use my deks to study or I sit on my bed. I used to sit on my bed to do everything. It’s just so comfortable. Over time though, I learned that I would slip into bad habits and watch a youtube video instead of studying. I still sometimes sit on my bed to do work but it’s mostly if I have to read something now.

I like to use my desk. I’ve had this desk from Ikea for some time now. I just never used it. It would be my collection station. I would just dump stuff on it and never actually use it. Now as shocking as this may seem, desks are great for studying!
