I saw that my posts are gaining a lot of notes and that's was surprising. It was a tea spill on my meticulous notes. Maybe it was a relatable situation? I honestly have no clue. Thanks a lot though, really fuelled my spirit.
College is now turning to be a constant stream of lifeless tests and late night study sessions. Mid terms are approaching quick and as a result we are getting many tests and assignments. So I decided to upgrade a bunch of old notebooks into planners to help me keep track of everything that's going on since it is a lot. Will post my progress too if I feel like it. My posts were never that consistent, but they might reduce now. Also club recruitment results are slowly being released, and some forms are still present, so am waiting, and waiting, and waiting.
Oh and these are the books am reading for now, did a book haul this Sunday after going for a movie, so am excited to complete these books!
Take care, stay safe.
I'm Ave M. Darling and I'm new to studyblr! I'm joining, like, today (September 20, 2021) and I'm excited to join the community to help me achieve my academic and personal goals.

- I'm 18 yrs old | birthday - November 1
- I'm a freshman (technically a transfer student since I completed most of my gen ed in community college while I was in high school) at the University of Arizona
- I'm studying Psychological Science and considering adding a second major of either law or dance
- I'm a dancer that focuses on African, modern and ballet and a lil bit of acro
- right now, I am studying: ballet, modern, african dance, introductory africana studies, anthropology, political philosophy and Spanish.
- my pronouns are she/her, and I'm black/african-american
- I'm an INTP-T
- clinically diagnosed with MDD and 'quiet' BPD
- triple Scoprio (Sun, Venus, Mercury) w/ a Virgo moon and a Libra Ascendant
- philosophy, metaphysics
- spirituality, religion
- writing, literature, books, authors
- people, watching people
- design, art, painting/drawing
- languages and culture
- build consistency and discipline in my studies: study more frequently and smarter, prepare for major assignments early
- lol I low-key wanna learn some other languages that aren't Spanish so you might see me practice studying other things on here too
- write and read more often, especially since I'll be running two blogs!!!
- push myself out of my comfort zone in terms of communication and participation (so opening up a little more about myself personally since I'm such a reserved person and pushing myself to speak up more in class when I have something that I would like to say or question)
- lose (more) weight and increase my strength, flexibility and technique in dance (you can follow my IG for updates on my creative journey)
what's on my studyblr:
- essay, short essay practice
- student lifestyle and health/wellness
- speaking, conversational, and writing in foreign language
- deep dives + explorations; essentially just me going deeper into subjects of interest
- cultural, religious/spiritual studies, mainly for dance, anthropology and personal interest
- study sessions + occasional note uploads and explanations of these notes
can't wait to meet new people, make friends and really push myself this year! I'm doing pretty okay so far but I'm I think that I can do even more now that I'm getting ready for my midterms. my manager for my current part time job told me something today in our coaching call that I thought was really helpful in keeping me motivated for the rest of the semester and my college career: there are no strengths and weakness, only strength and growth opportunities. so instead of me assuming that there are just things I'm not good at, I'm going to go into the rest of the semester with the idea that: hey, you know if I'm really a badass at these things, then why can't I be a badass at this one thing I'm not super good at?
I'm hoping that in this time I can build a new routine as I've fallen out of the one that I started building, but I'm also quite excited to step into this new area of my life.
Ready to grow with you all.
Peace and blessings <3

I woke up earlier to make notes. My classes are going super fast. I can't believe it been only a week of them! Finally I've a break tomorrow, we've a mid weekday break instead of a sunday. As much as it gets exhausting, I love being busy and consider it as a blessing! I felt a lil sleep deprived so got some extra coffee. Trying to reduce my caffeine intake by avoiding drinking everyday but today's a necessity
I am a joke. I keep on looking for ‘study aesthetics’ ‘study motivation’ but I don’t really study that much (because i spent my time looking for these searches)
a small collection of pics from the last few days!
super excited to get into spooky season💕
✨today’s song of the day:
14/100: today was honestly a struggle to get motivated, not gonna lie. i did get a lot done but it doesn't feel like it. my interview went well, and i've been reading and doing some chores over the course of the day. i'm gonna try to put some more effort into ap lang and do more exercise as well to boost my energy.
SILT: acceleration is basically how fast velocity changes.
Finally doing this on time! Today I dressed up for '60s day at my school, came up with 2 article ideas for the paper, and auditioned for the upcoming musical. I'm not super content as to how I'm perceived by others right now, but that's okay. I have quite a bit of work due tomorrow, but I think I can get through it!
Finally starting my 100 days of productivity! Here are some pictures from today... My planner, some AP Spanish work I had to do, and picture of my bookshelf that my friend edited to look aesthetic :P
Study things I did:
Write down everything I had to do in my planner
Do all my homework
Wrote my lines for a scene I'm doing in Drama (yay!)
Read my book (Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi)
Sooo good luck to everyone with everything <3
posting some journal stuff from april because i really liked this whole vibe also feels like it fits the changing of the seasons !
Send me an ask of a character and I'll answer with a verse (?) from Fadwa Tuqan's poetry that reminds me of them;
(Could be black clover, sk8, vanitas no carte, mdz, tokyorev.... if u know ik the fandom u can ask it)
I'm swamped with internship work and didn't sleep all night.
I also finally did something that I'd been waiting for really long to do, and I feel really relieved about it.
Listening to: Angels like You by Miley Cyrus
Me, on the IB Program: oh nooooo, I have so many things to do :(
Me, on university trying for a double degree: Ufff my brain is 10/10, no one can stop me
