I really want to know... what are your studying tips and what really helps you to study well? What motivates you to study?
It probably is really late of me asking this question because all throughout high school I have been studying and I should already know by now my strengths and weaknesses of studying but honestly and unfortunately, I haven't found the perfect way to do it. I know everyone has their own studying techniques but I really need some new ideas. Anything to possibly help me through these stressful times :(
Most of you bloggers have already completed your final year of high school (lucky you!) and so I'd love to hear what your final year of high school was like. Was it fun? Do you have any regrets? Do you ever look back and think 'what if...' ? Were your results better than you expected? I want to hear everything!
On my Twitter I revealed that I will be on a blog hiatus. This means that I will be having a 'break' from blogging and resume when I'm done with my exams. When these holidays are over, the break will begin and that's only one week away. It will be for the best since I really do need to maximise my study time. If you're a true blog follower and friend, you will understand... right?
I'll be back before you know it :) I'll blog on the day before I go back to school just for you guys because I really do love you all :']
I better stop with the soppy-ness hehe...
So anyway, on Friday I went on a 'study date' with my boyfriend x] It sounds quite nerdy but it was nothing like that at all! It was successful, enjoyable and I felt that he really helped me and wasn't a distraction. We studied in a library called the Mortlock Wing in the city. This is what it looks like inside:
View from the third level
The whole library is full of old books from the 1800's
Does it seem... Harry Potter-ish at all? It's actually much darker than this. I didn't take a photo because there's security guards walking around so... it would've been awkward :S
It is really quiet in there and it really made me want to study and actually do something because the people sitting across across the other side could see me and seeing them them studying made me want to study too instead of sitting there looking like a slacker. Haha.
The tables for studying are on the second floor and if none are vacant then you can't stay in there. Luckily I got the last vacant spot in the library but there was no study lamp so it wasn't as bright. Oh and I saw my school friend studying with her friends on the other side of the library so I guess that made feel more motivated to study xD
We couldn't have just studied for the whole day with each other x] So after hours of studying we went to have lunch in Chinatown food court where I bumped into another school friend and my boyfriend saw one of his old school friends too x)
First we had Bubble Tea or some may call it Boba. BF had taro flavour and I had mango. I'm so not Asian with my choice xP
Look at the black pearls in mine (on the left). They look a bit gross
I'm obviously the slower drinker out of the two xD
My boyfriend shouted me lunch and we ate Japanese ^-^ The only Japanese food I've eaten is sushi :/ That's quite sad of me haha, especially because I'm Asian.
This was what I had - Teriyaki Chicken with Rice and Miso Soup (and a lettuce salad and a sweet carrot mashed potato)
How pro was my naming of this dish above *sarcasm* Sounds so Masterchef-like HAHA
Oh and sorry it's blurry!
There was a lady literally staring at me on the other side when I took this photo so I quickly took it :/
I'm no food blogger so I can't use sophisticated words to describe this. Overall it was nice but I think Teriyaki chicken is too salty for me! It's okay in sushi but big pieces on a plate drenched in sauce is too much for me to handle. The lettuce salad had nice dressing :)
After that we went to a lolly shop called Blackebys Sweets :) It sells a lot of candy from the UK and the US which are rare to find here!
Again, he shouted me lollies and basically we picked up random things that looked interesting or tasty:
Ah sorry blurry again! People were behind me so I had to hurry up :(
Would you like some lollies that remind you of vegetables? Haha peas and carrots...
None of these lollies interested me :/ Why did I take a photo?
Maybe because no one was at this section x)
One of those mirrors. Hmm what are they for?
Oh look that's my bf peaking behind me ;)
Just some of the lollies :)
Lol at Hello Kitty jelly beans and the Twilight chocolate, he picked them out for me xD
and I picked out the Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme for both of us
It was a really good day of fun and studying combined. So much better than being stuck at home studying and not doing anything fun, or walking around as a form of exercise!
I wish I could do this more often, especially with my boyfriend. We're so busy with work these days that we hardly get to see each other :( But in a way, that can be good because each time we meet up it's special =]
I can't wait until school is over for me!
Oh and I bought bun keyrings for me and my hun, the day before we met ^0^
I gave him the one on the right since it's bigger. Mine's cuter though :"D
