MUSIC TO ADD TO YOUR PLAYLIST!

MORE MUSIC! WOW!

I usually really like a song for about a week and then I find new ones

Anyways, I recently started using the Apple Music 3 month-trial and it’s SO GOOD

I know a lot of people like spotify but I can’t seem to find my way around spotify.

Sometimes when I’m painting and stuff, I like to play the “recommended songs” list on Apple Music and I find a lot of good songs on there 🙂

Disclaimer: Generally, I don’t search up or really listen to the lyrics of songs, I mostly listen for the tune so if there’s a song with strange lyrics I am most likely not aware of it.

Also I’m not a very musical person, like I couldn’t tell the difference between pop/alternative/indie/rock and other genres until a month ago (still can’t really tell the difference)


This is a really good song

I found this song on the Music app and I searched them up on youtube and they only have 94 subscribers??? whaatt

The 4 songs that Far Places has made are all really good

Camila’s first solo song 😀 (i think)

It’s really good, I listened to it on repeat for about a week, and I still listen to it now

Honestly all of the Brood’s Conscious album songs are really good, I just didn’t want to post every single song in their album on here, so here’s my favorite song 🙂

Here’s a link to their album

I never really liked one direction songs very much but THIS SONG IS SO GOOD

The genre is “soft-rock”, so it’s quite different from one direction songs.

Another good song from his album is Two Ghosts

Not that 1D songs were terrible, but in my opinion, their solo songs are so much better- including Zayn and Niall’s solo songs (speaking of which, Slow Hands is a pretty good song too)

This was the first Halsey song I ever listened to and it’s so goodddddd

I like how every song she tells a story and they’re all really unique stories

also her voice is amazing- I’ve heard her live vocals are not that good but I just like how smooth and “ethereal” her voice sounds

Another Halsey song worthy of having it’s video on this post 🙂

LAST ONE

The tune itself isn’t all that good, but I just really like Halsey and Lauren’s voices together

Also the pronouns in this song- very diverse

Other really good songs in her album include Angel on Fire, Sorry, Hopeless ft. Cashmere Cat

My teacher plays this song during workblocks and ITS SO GOOD AFSJBIHE

This is another really chill song, and it’s really good 😀

Not really sure how everyone knows Sabrina Carpenter (is she from a movie or smth?)

but her songs are really good and she has a nice voice 🙂

This songs kinda weird but it’s pretty good and I keep going back to this song

Honestly I can’t understand anything she’s saying in this song but it’s really good and the tune is nice and it’s always stuck in my head

There was an ad for this song on youtube and I listened to the full song and it’s actually quite good and Vanessa Hudgens sings here and high school musical memories y’know


That’s all I have for this post

And to bless your day

Here’s a hilarious video

Studying Tips!

I have a week of final exams starting tomorrow and I’m still reviewing term 1 of science…..

I should be studying right now but I’m procrastinating 

Also, this is more for like long-term studying, so if you plan to spend an entire day studying this is for you.

———

TIP 1

Open your window- let the fresh air come in because fresh air is good for you and you can think better in an environment that isn’t stuffy. 

Also if you live in a quieter place, it’s nice to have some natural background noise while studying.


TIP 2

Set your work space.

Personally, I can’t study in a messy environment so I have to clean up my ENTIRE room before I can start, or I can’t think.

It’s also good to have a glass of water or a drink of your choice on hand so you don’t have to interrupt your studying and go and get water.

TIP 3

Wind down and relax. Take a shower, wash your face and get all your ~problems~ or discomfort out of the way. I like to wear comfy clothes to study so I don’t have any added stress ontop of studying.


But don’t be too comfy or you might fall asleep!

TIP 4 

Get or use a bunch of really colourful highlighters and pens and colour code EVERYTHING

It helps to have a little legend on the side to organize your colours. For example,

Red- Vocabulary Terms

Green- important points

Blue- for titles and subtitles 


Maybe it’s just me but this makes studying more fun

TIP 5 

This is more for people who study by making study sheets like me- when you’re copying down things, say it over and over in your head while you’re doing it to help yourself memorize it.

TIP 6 

Quiz yourself!

Learning from mistakes is one of the best ways to learn and memorize things.

TIP 7

Spray a perfume or a scent you wouldn’t normally smell. And then on exam/test day, spray it in yourself.

This helps you remember facts from when you were studying.

TIP 8

Work in a BRIGHT, well-lit room.

If it’s possible, open your blinds so that sunlight can pour in! Unless you live where I live and it rains every day.

Your environment and the amount of light in your room greatly affects your mood.


TIP 9

If you’re in a time crunch and you study well by reading, Times New Roman is proven to be the easiest font to read. 

TIP 10

If you need help understanding a concept, watch a crash course video!

The guy who talks is John Green’s brother and all the information is really informative and it’s FAST (which helps if you need to relearn a whole years worth of science like me)

You might find that these videos explain things better in 10 minutes than your teacher does in a whole term!


TIP 11

Teach someone! 

Pretend you’re a teacher and teach someone everything or maybe even film a crash course video yourself. This helps you apply your knowledge and helps you memorize way better.

TIP 12

Take breaks! But efficiently.

Take breaks once your finished a certain topic and not halfway through so that you can remember it as a whole. 

Also, don’t just go on your phone during your break- take a walk! Ride your bike or something and excercise so you can get your brain moving.

TIP 13 

Use a mnemonic!

What is a mnemonic, you ask?

It’s a word or phrase you memorize to help you memorize stuff (I know, great explanation)

For example,

ROY G BIV helps you remember the order of the rainbow.

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

Here’s a mnemonic generator so you can type in the letters you need to remember, and it helps you generate a sentence

http://www.mnemonicgenerator.com/

TIP 14

Before you let yourself sleep at night and while you’re laying in your bed, quiz yourself briefly on what you’ve studied that day.

What’s a nucleus?

What goes on during anaphase?

Studies have shown that this actually helps you remember things better.

BUT this does not mean studying at 3AM in the morning before you sleep helps, because you’ll be too tired to remember any concepts. This means that before you sleep at a good time (preferably before 11:30), reviewing what you’ve studied helps you lock in all those facts

——-

Hopefully these tips help.

For those of you with exams, good luck!!!

Also, don’t procrastinate like me right now.

Song Recommendations + Covers

 

Yikes no post in a while but at least summer’s coming soon so tons of posts!

Most of these will probably Madilyn Bailey and Jasmine Thompson just because I’m doing a marathon of their videos right now.

This is a song she wrote and I love it! It sounds so good and she had a bunch of youtubers lip syncing it for this lyric video 😀

This cover is one of my favourites by her and deserves more views!

Her most recent cover that she did for a contest and sounds a bit better than the original 😛

Jasmine’s Wonderland album sounds so nice but here’s my favourite song from it! Plus she’s only 16 so she’s amazing for her age!

SHE SOUNDS AMAZING

I love how her voice makes all songs sound sad or soft ❤

When do you guys get off school? I’m already seeing people on Instagram getting off like I STILL HAVE A MONTH SO

School Life Hack

It’s very possible that this “life hack” is already commonly used and I just suck at life


Have you ever struggled remembering math formulas before an exam?

Have you ever spent 10 minutes flipping around your book for a phrase or a formula?

Well forget no more!

If you have a math (or any subject) workbook, simply look at the front or the back pages of the book and you should find a blank page somewhere

4

There, you can write any key notes, errors you commonly make, or any formulas.

That way, you don’t have to flip around your book everytime you’re studying, especially when it comes to finals, where you have to study everything 🙂 18575265_1558940340782732_1107242929_o

What if you don’t have a workbook?

You can use painter’s tape and tape a blank page behind your textbook cover. Make sure to use painter’s tape or a light tape so that it doesn’t peel the paper

OR

You can buy those giant sticky notes and stick it to the front or back of your book

OR

You can just write in pencil (not too hard) and erase it at the end of the year 🙂

Life Update pt. 2

so my laptop has ressurected

I’m not sure what happened but now I don’t have to use my mom’s laggy laptop anymore :))

this laptop is still probably pretty unstable and might die again but idkkkk I’ll deal with that problem when it comes

As for now, I should probably start backing up all my files that I care about before they’re all gone…again

~Cari

life update

so my laptop decided to die on me yesterday

and now I have my mom’s laptop but I can’t play any games on it,
1) it’s super laggy
2) it’s not made for gaming, unlike my other laptop
3) downloading a game (like LoL) is probably gonna lag the entire laptop more than it already is laggy
which is fine because I’ll won’t have as much distraction from doing homework and stuff

I’m really sad though, because I lost Sony Movie Studio and I don’t think I can re-download it onto another laptop because it’s only meant for 1 device per purchase

Thank goodness I uploaded most of my photography onto here or else that would all likely be completely gone too

I mean 90% of my files are gone because I didn’t back them up, but they weren’t really that important – the files I really liked are online or on something else, but then again, my unprocessed video files are gone too…oh well

Also means all my fantage files are gone, so maybe this is a way to say I’ve finally gotten over fantage (I had way too many files on fantage even after quitting lol)

I got the laptop a little over a year ago and I’m quite sad that it broke (it won’t turn on)
not really sure how it happened and idk if it’s fixable, but if not, I might get a desktop instead because they seem to be more stable

looks like I won’t get a camera anytime soon at this point 😦

Last Minute Presentation Hacks

We’ve all been there. A presentation the next day where we haven’t even started practising for. It’s honestly the most stressful thing ever but you know you gotta get that A+ ;))

Here’s a few tips that will help you get by and in addition, make it seem like you’ve rehearsed it a million times:

1. Read it over and over and over and over and over again until you feel comfortable with what you’re saying

Pretty self-explanatory. The more you read it, the closer you get to memorising it (which should be your goal if it is reasonable).

2. Practice in front of a mirror
Image result for presentation mirror
Yes, it’s uncomfortable staring at yourself. But if you’re able to get past this, presenting in front of an audience is much easier
An alternative to this would be to video yourself, then watch it. I do think it’s more preferable to just do it in front of a mirror though.

3. Record yourself (audio)

And then listen to that file. Even if you hate your voice on tape, just do it. Listening to yourself will help you identify where you stumble and it will let you know where you need to get yourself more familiar with

4. Highlight parts of your paper

I’m not sure if this method works for everyone, but I recently thought of doing it and it worked out super well for me.

This was a book report I had to present in which I procrastinated to the night before to write and practice. I found that I often lost my place at the same parts, so I decided to highlight the phrase. This way, when I glanced at my paper in the middle of my presentation, it would be easy to find where I was. In addition, my brain works really well with colour. I associate colour with certain parts of the presentation. For example, the parts I highlighted in yellow were quotes from the book. When I looked at my sheet during the presentation, I would see I am at the first yellow part, and because my brain associates it with “I can’t let them hurt her anymore…”, I would be able to look right back at the audience right away and continue my presentation confidently because I knew exactly what I had to say.

(not sure how well I explained that but
tl;dr I’m a very visual person so by associating parts of my report with colour, it’s easy for me to know what’s next and by having bold colours on the page, I can easily find my spot when I quickly glance down at my paper)

5. Stop procrastinating

This is hard. I get it. But the more time you have to keep thinking about what you’re presenting and repeating the words over and over again, you get more comfortable and you can almost present without thinking.


Hopefully at least one of these tricks helped 🙂 I have aced 2 English presentations so far using these tips and tricks. Of course, it’s not always great to leave things last minute but if you have a lot of other work to do and this presentation just wasn’t on your mind until late, this list definitely will help you out, even if it’s just a bit.
