Recently, I’ve been finding it super difficult to study given the ‘situation’. I’ve moved home and my university is still deciding how to examine us. I almost lost all of my motivation.
This morning a rainbow fell across and it reminded me of a quote:
‘You can’t have a rainbow without a little rain.’
It reminded me of how much I want to achieve my dream, to get through university, and how much I need to work to be able to do that.
I know that for a lot of you, this time has made it difficult to push yourself and that you’ve possibly had major changes to your lifestyle, but I believe in you. You can do this. Find your inner rainbow, the reasons that you need to be able to get through this time.
thursday - take a picture of the pens/highlighters that you could not live without
honestly highlighters can die; i’ve lost too many of em in my lifetime for us two to have a good relationship. however my friends are angels and they give me pens for birthdays and holidays bc they know i like to write. the bottom one is a lovely muji pen and the other is one from Dryden Designs and it is very boujee and i love it very much <33
Hello! It’s me, Abby, and i know I haven’t been here for a while, but i just remembered that i have this account (lol). I’m hoping to post more on here now that we’re in quarantine; I have a lot of notes that I feel that would be great to share, and maybe (if you’d like), I can reintroduce myself since its been so long since I’ve been on this blog!
I’m excited to be back on here and can’t wait to post again!
Day [10/100] of productivity ✨ not much work I have to do today . I already studied for my chemistry exam and I feel pretty good about it. I decided to put my energy towards covers for my bullet journal and my brain dump journal. If you couldn’t tell I’m IN LOVE WITH CHRIS BROWN 😫
[Day 9/100] of productivity ✨ My chemistry quiz came back and I got a B !! 👏🏽 we love to see it ! All I have left this week is the Chem exam 😂 so we’re not done just yet. It’s tomorrow at 7:50am . Then we’ll be on spring break !
My go to breakfast has been 3 strips of bacon with a bowl of brown sugar oatmeal ❤️
This day, I mostly recorded the song because it was a new song that I have heard about once. It was really fun doing that! Also, it was a Friday that didn’t feel like a Friday. I don’t know why, but it’s probably the continued break and staying at home. I would love to go out!
Asked people to make a study group
Recorded Bruises for my friend
Did 1 unit of APP1
Vibe checked (talked to) my friend
March 28th (Sat):
I mostly tried to focus on studying this day due to the surge of motivation out of absolutely nowhere. It was fun to catch up, but this is when I started thinking about having a legit schedule that would work for me. This break is getting out of hand in a way. My productivity in summer is way better than this.
Finished Unit 1 of calc book
Did a unit on APP1
Filmed for a chain video
Vibe checked another friend
March 29th (Sun):
I know weekends don’t really matter at this point, but I decided that I needed a break from everything that I was doing. Therefore, from the beginning of the day, I painted a tribute piece to Steven Universe, which just ended by putting a cap on Steven’s arc. It was a very chill day since I didn’t really do anything very productive, but I got some rest during this time!
Did poster color art with watercolor and acrylic techniques - Steven Universe ( @sugargliderowl )
Talked to friends
Organized my supplies
March 30th (Mon):
New week! I wanted to paint a little more since my stuff were still out, so I did paint a Uno Reverse Card that is just for appreciation. I did continue on with studying, though!
Started a chapter for APP1
Painted a Uno Reverse Card
March 31st (Tues):
I actually got to make a study group! I was so happy because I got people in and got a time! It’s going to be so fun, in my opinion. I also played a bunch of instruments that I haven’t touched for a long time(except the ukulele: I play that a lot). Playing instruments make me very happy because it gives me a sense of achievement while it’s also relaxing.
Finished a chapter for APP1
Painted something to appreciate a friend
Played clarinet, ukulele, and harmonica
April 1st (Wed):
Although it is April Fools, I still went on and studied! I could have pulled some pranks on my friends. I should have. I got some more stuff done, and I decided that it was a good time to start things because it is the first of a month. In other words, I’m thinking of new projects to actually do rather than stress out so much about everything and anything.
Did 2(ish) chapters for APP1 prep
Did some calculus
Edited the chain video
Next Block Thought:
The next block is the last block. I seriously need to start more projects! Although this challenge will end on that block, the productivity and updates will continue because I still have about 25 more days (most likely more) of break. I love that I can be productive by updating here and thinking about what I’m doing with my life. That’s the joy of sharing out progress. It’s quite a motivation. Also, I want to start doing languages and SAT/ACT practice during this break while still going on with all the schoolwork teachers are posting. Moreover, I should also talk to some of my teachers for review, grades, and everything in between. As an extrovert, the lack of communication is tearing me down, so that will help as well as talking with my friends. Let’s do this! PRODUCTIVITY!
I just wanted to share some bujo spreads from a while ago. I haven’t really been journaling for march and february … It just be like that sometimes. I keep a calender as well as mood and other trackers on my phone since I have recurring periods like that. That way I can keep an eye on myself even if I am on a downward path.
