3 things you need for LYFE // back to school

yes my hair is often put up into a bun...#badhabit
 guys it happened. school officially started like WAHT. PLEASE STOP TIME AND LETS GOOOO BAAAACK TO SUMMMMMER *dodges junk you fall lovers throw at me* *realizes that i have fall lover friends* *looks at aaliyah* * runs*

 I decided that I'm a pro at doing school since I'm a senior *laughs cause I just decided this* so I can give you all pointers on how to get schoolwork/homework done WITHOUT dying. (im really not kidding. death doesn't HAVE to happen)

T I P #1 (and guys that wasn't a hashtag) -- music *yanks your arm cause we are moving on bc ENOUGH SAID*

T I P #2 --- pens or pencils that legit make you happy. They have to fit in your hand, flow nicely, have the correct coloration..like you need the right tools to get a job done AND PENS ARE TOOLS RIGHT??!!

T I P #3 --- comfy clothes, coffee and/or tea and a snack which crunches cause IDK about you but crunching helps get out my frustration at algebra jumbo

 and dudes I know that school is hard to adjust to cause I'm feeling it. THAT ALARM CLOCK IS STARTING TO GET ON MY NERVES -- but at the same time, I'm taking a mile walk each day in the morning. That's one thing I love about school, having a schedule and getting things done *fist pump*

What do you like about school?
how is school going??

  1. Frankly, if my hair came out like yours, I would wear my hair in that awesomely swirly, classic bun every day, too. Do you spend hours teasing your hair, or does it just naturally do that?!
    And I TOTALLY agree with the pen thing! I am sooooo picky about my pens/pencils, but when I find one that I like, it makes the whole experience so much better... and, hey, coffee and chocolate have been scientifically proven to improve your memory if you sample them while studying, I'm told. Truth? Not sure. Do I live like it is? Oh yeah ;).
    I can't listen to music while doing anything "brainy', though. If I'm sewing, quilling, cleaning, etc., I can listen all day (or at least until the rest of my family gets louder and I can no longer hear the music, it just becomes extra background noise, and I get overwhelmed at how much I feel like I'm being pulled between and wanna cry, then I turn it off, haha...). But while reading or solving algebra, I CAN'T do it. For me it's like trying to read and carry on a conversation. You can do it for a few seconds, but eventually one or the other is going to trail off. My sister can do it just fine though, so it's not that it runs in the family. It's sad...

    1. Oh my gosh, Bri!! Like seriously? lol!! No I haven't done a thing to my hair *laughs* well other than NOT wash it.. I'm terrible. I swim in the pool like every day so I just leave it hahaaaa (i know its gross but I wash it like once a week so????)
      I DIDNT KNOW THAT!!!! Wow. huh! I believe it tho. haha! I think I would only remember the chocolate tho and not the school hahaaaaa

      Wow that's strange! I can't listen to songs with words while reading, but I do listen to classical or JAZZ. ooh yes. jazz all the way <3333

    2. I was the first commenter!!! Yeah :D. Haha!
      Well, your hair is goals.... ::sigh:: ;).
      Chewing gum while studying is supposed to work too, if you chew it while testing... it takes you back to studying? Don't know XD.
      I can't even listen to instrumental! It pulls me in too much!

  14. Your hair in that bun looks really nice!! No joke. AND I CAN SEE THE HEADBAND which just makes it even cuter! (In the last few days I've put my hair up in a bun, and I don't know why I decided to all of a sudden BUT I LIKE IT and am going to continue to do it, especially during the week with school TO KEEP MY HAIR/LONG BANGS OUT OF MY FACE. ;))

    Great tips! Pens and pencils you like SERIOUSLY makes writing so much more of a joy! AGREED. And music, yes, music. (For school though, it's only classical or instrumental kind of stuff with no lyrics so I can completely focus.) And school is going pretty well so far... I just really want to put my mind to it more so I can maybe be more efficient. ;) AND THE ALARM CLOCK NOISE is pretty annoying. WHO CREATED THAT SOUND ANYWAYS?!??? I generally shut it off so fast in the mornings that I don't really hear it, though. XD SHUT IT OFF. SHUT IT OFF> PLLLLEEEAAAASSEEE.

    1. It's so funny that you all are saying that cause I don't think its anything special! I just love how it feels up. LOL!! Oh IKR? I just started wearing the headband. I like it a lot <333 I LOVE HOW IT KEEPS HAIR OUT OF MY FACE (or yanking it out of your head while doing algebra or something hahaaaaa)

      I listen to classical too! Or JAZZ <333333333333333333333 Hahaa!! I can't stand that noise so I set my phone on vibrate and leave it on my bed and it will buzz me to awakeness (thats a new word). Its amazing xD
