Started blogging since October 2012 (and I still have no idea why I'm doing this)

Last September 4 and 5, my class had our retreat in Tagaytay. The experience was amazing and really memorable. I am so blessed to have them as class :-)

Here are some of the things I learned during the retreat. I felt like the pictures could tell everything so I didn’t write a ling post about it 

Have an awesome weekend everyone!!

"Teka akala ko fourth quarter na"

"feeling ko exams na bukas"

"sure ba kayong first quarter pa lang?"

these are the usual dialogues I say and hear during the first quarter

(pc: weheartit.com)

I remember telling myself “FINALLY” when I entered senior year. I did not actually think about the stress and the challenges I will face. I even remember dreaming graduating and finally entering college. 

So far senior year is stressful (duuh). It was only the first quarter and we already had bunches of groundwork, projects and requirements. Is is always like this? Based from what I observed from other batches, they looked calm on the first quarters of the school year (or maybe my batch is more expressive on social medias that other batches?) 

In short, I did not really expect all of this work. 

 But of course,

We all face hardships in our lives. Like what I usually say, “Kakayanin!!

You are just minding your own business until *BAM* destiny hits you in the head and knocks you out. 
The best part is, you refuse to notice it. In our generation, people like Nathaniel Keith, a very intelligent and studious, won’t notice what’s outside studying and school.
For a know-it-all, he couldn’t get a clue that destiny just came in late for school…

TIPS & TRICKS
Studying in a blue room relaxes your mood and makes you more productive, which is great for finishing up assignments and homework.
Spray an unfamiliar scent, and chew an unfamiliar flavour of gum while you’re having a study session. 
Before you start your exam, write down the things you think you might need while they’re still fresh in your head at the top of the page such as formulas and vocabulary words. 
'Times New Roman' is the easiest and fastest font to read.
When writing an essay, add the opposing point of view to make the read look at both sides. 
When you’re taking notes, pretend you’re writing them for some else, preferably someone you care about, and imagine them not knowing anything when it comes to the class you’re writing notes in.
Using colours when writing your notes helps you remember faster, avoid using only one colour as it might dull out important information. 
Change your font from 12pt to 14pt when writing essays, it looks the same but increases the number of pages by 1-2.
Cinnamon flavoured gum helps you stay awake, use it for your morning classes. 
Speaking something out loud helps your remember, so always read your notes aloud when you’re studying.
Reading the first and last paragraphs and only running over the middle has the same outcome as reading all of it.
Chocolate has the ability to improve your math skills. 
Always have an alternative email, you never know when it might come in handy.
Cold showers over coffee anyway. It keeps you fresh the entire day, and also helps you stay focused and less tired throughout the day.
Reward yourself with 15-20 minutes of free time with every 45 minutes of studying. 
If you’re pulling an all nighter, sleeping the 20 minutes before the sun comes up helps your body relax and you’ll be less tired. 
Replace the colour tube of your red pen with the blue one. No one steals a red pen, and no one wants it.
Always say yes to extra credit, no matter what your grade is. It can make a huge different seeing as it has the ability to change one percent which can change an entire grade letter. 
ALWAYS DATE YOUR NOTES // ASSIGNMENTS. 
Writing something down is an equivalent of saying something 7 times. 
No matter how much time you have left, do it earlier. You’ll be glad you did.
Be friends with your teachers, you never know what can happen during the school year.
Have a study group, you’ll have friends to explain things to you and vide versa, also you can share notes and finish up homework without feeling like time is passing by slow.
And now an inspiring quote said by my biology teacher to one of my friends who wouldn’t stop looking at the clock, “The time will pass, but you might not pass this class.”
