So, after spending time doing so much Calc and Psych homework, I thought of the idea to write up a post on how to keep your school stuff organized. Basically, how I see it, the more organized you are, the better you’ll study and the better you’ll learn. If you keep having a messy style with your school studies and homework, it’s going to become very difficult for you to keep up with anything.
What I like to do when finished with a unit in a certain class, mostly Psychology, is type up my notes. When writing notes in class, some peers and I have to write quick or else we’ll never get our notes done before the teacher moves to the next slide. So I figured out a way to solve it, which also helps me study for big tests over that certain section. I type up my notes on a word document as I go through the whole unit. When I type it out, I can see my notes so much more clearly and leave out parts that were just meant as mini activities. It’s like killing two birds with one stone!
Never throw away your homework or notes until the whole year is over. This can be a hassle and make you feel like such a hoarder, but it helps. It’ll give you something to review over and just in case your teacher wants to look over it, you have it right there. Once the year is over and you don’t have any other class that might relate to it, then you can throw it in a bonfire and yell to the sky “I’M DONE!” 🙂
Another thing is to keep all your classes in each of their own notebook and/or folder. I don’t know how kids got into it, but they think they can keep up by putting two or three subjects in one notebook. No, that doesn’t work. I haven’t tried it at all, but I know that it’ll only make things more confusing for you and you won’t be organized and not really prepared.
If you want to (although it may be more work), you can take your notes, and once you get home, put them in another notebook in neater hand writing. This is just in case you have things crossed off that you wish you didn’t have or if you have doodles everywhere that are distracting and seem messy to you. I don’t know too many people that actually do this, but that’s just an idea.
On another note: surviving this season with allergies and blah. I know it seems horrible and just a waste of time on your taste buds, take allergy medicine before anything happens. I just took some and I actually feel slightly better. You should take this medicine once or twice a day to keep allergies away. Another thing that’ll help is fluids and healthy stuff. Whenever I’m sick or feel something coming on, I drink orange juice that’ll stimulate my system and protect my body from flu or just avoid getting allergy crap.
That’s my little schpeal on that. Hope this helped!
