Study Habits

It's already our Final exam and we're all focused on our studies. We want to pass the exam for a better future ahead of us.

But before we talk about your futures, hehe, let's discuss about the study habits we have everytime we're on our last day study before the exam. Do you study alone? Or you prefer to have a group study in your friend's house? Do you eat while studying?

Well, here's mine, and I'd love to share it to you! :)

  • I can study while listening to music.
  • But I prefer watching DVD while studying. I just don't know why :P
  • I need a pen, a highlighter, to highlight those important terms.
  • I'm always in a prone position.
  • Sometimes, I eat chocolates, others said it can refresh your mind. Actually, I don't believe that. I just wanna fill my empty tummy. Haha.
  • I only use handouts when it's already final exam, cause I don't wanna waste my time writing few notes (Prelims, Semis).
  • I write what I recite.
  • I doodle time by time, so I can rest my mind.
  • I set a goal of studying the whole book for only 4 hours. It's helpful. Hehe.

Actual photo while I;m studying. Messy :|
Handouts i have made. My penmanship sucks, I know.
Cellphone should be turned off to avoid distractions.
Yet this list are mine. I don;t want you to do this cause I know you have your own study habits. By the way, i found this strategies on the net, it is said here that this is perfect for those who want to know the best way to cram for an exam.

Eat Frequent Small Meals
Avoid eating a big meal before a study session. Too much food will send your body into a ‘rest’ mode. On the other hand, don’t starve yourself either. Frequent small meals are best.

Study When You’re Sharpest
Study according to your body-clock. Are you sharpest in the morning or at the evening? Schedule your most difficult materials when you are mentally at your best, and schedule the easier ones when you are mentally less efficient.

Drink Water Often
Drink plenty of water during a study session, especially when you feel sluggish. Caffeine may help you to stay awake, but it can increase your anxiety – use it in moderation.

Don’t Get Too Comfortable in Your Chair
Choose a chair that supports your back. It should be comfortable, but not too comfortable. Just like an athlete during a performance, your body should be relaxed, so that all your energy goes to where it matters – your brain.

Clear Your Desk of Everything You Don’t Need
Have everything you need on the desk. Put away what you do not need for the study session. Seeing reminders of other assessments or domestic bills may increase your anxiety and distract you.

Take Breaks Every Hour
It is important to take a break before you feel tired and lose your concentration completely. Regular breaks at least once an hour helps to sustain your concentration. If the work is not going too well and you have difficulties in concentrating, you may need a long break and go back to it later

Stretch During Your Breaks
Know and respect your concentration span which will vary from hour to hour and from day to day. When you sit for long periods, gravity draws the blood to the lower part of your body. When you take a break, take a few deep breaths and get more oxygen to your brain: try walking around and doing some light stretching for a few minutes. It will help to release tension in your body, and help your circulation.

Study at the Same Time, Same Place
Study at the same time and at the same place, devoted to study only. This helps you to associate the time and place with studying and concentrating. You will find that you get into a habit of studying as soon as you sit down.

Cream and Lotion

Applying body lotion is one of the few inexpensive ways that people can pamper themselves. Do you use one of this? Well, as people (especially women) grow older, they uses cream and/or lotion once in a while. Why? Because these products help to regenerate, replenish (anti-aging creams), smoothen,  and to soften dry and rough skins. Others make our skin glow.(Actually, only few men are concern about their skin, and there are skin care lines for them, in short, I don't care about what they use. Hehe.)

So here I wanna share what body lotion and hand cream I am using. What's for my hands? (Yes, I use different creams for my hands and body ^_^) I use Marks and Spencer's Aloe Vera Hand & Nail Cream. And what can I say about it? This leaves my hands soft and nourished and sinks in well. It has a nice fragrance, which is I need not to put some cologne of my hands. Its thick and very handy. :) I always have this in my pouch.






How about the lotion I'm using? Obviously, I'm satisfied with this Jergens® Replenishing Vitamin E
Gentle Exfoliating Moisturizer. Its not sticky like others do. I've been using it for almost 5-8 years. It does it's job and is still a great buy.





No photoshops or something, here's my lovely hands! (Actualy, they're not lovely. I just assumed.)



How about you? What brand are you using?

Big Mistakes

Every single day in my life, I think about the mistakes I've done to myself and to other people. I didn't know how did I handled it before. I have no idea how would my life be if this/tht didn't happened.

6 inches eraser
Available @ National Book Store

I saw this large eraser yesterday. Then I came to think, what if there's a huge eraser to erase our mistakes in our lives literally? I would be so grateful cause it'll be so useful. YeartoSuccess suggested some tips on how we can handle our mistakes. And it runs this way:
  • Take action to better the situation quickly. You may not always be able to correct the mistake right away, but almost always you can do something to better the situation. The key is to act quickly.
  • Do not call attention to your mistake unless it is necessary. Some mistakes do require public attention - as in the Ford incident. However, most mistakes can and do go unnoticed unless the one who makes the mistake calls attention to it. A good example of this is in public speaking. While giving speeches, I sometimes lose my place or skip some content, but the audience does not know it because I never say "Whoops... I lost my place" - I simply continue on like no mistake was made.
  • Don't play the blame game. If you made the mistake, or if someone for whom you are responsible made the mistake, take responsibility for the mistake. Admit your error and assure others that you are taking action to improve the situation. Trying to avoid responsibility for a mistake for which you are responsible does not say much for your character.
  • Apologize. If your mistake negatively affects others, apologize, especially if they bring the mistake to your attention. Do not try to justify or explain your mistake, simply apologize.
  • Use humor. When appropriate, use humor to draw attention away from your mistake and lighten up the situation. It is especially important to be able to laugh at your own mistakes.

It takes a person of character to gracefully and effectively deal with their own mistakes. This process is another one to which many people attribute their success. We all make mistakes and we can all recover from our mistakes with a little effort, character, and positive mental attitude.

Product Reviews

Hi there buddies! :) Thanks for dropping. :) I just wanted you to know that I've been tired of blogging about myself, what happens inside our school, about what I feel about somebody else, so for now, I've decided to blog about beauty products, I really need to purchase one every single day. Haha. No, not really. But yes, I will talk about some products I'm currently using, for I'm a lady now. I need to see the changes I have made with myself since the last time I behave as a girl. Woah! So deep.

Honestly, I don't have anything to blog now. I just want to write. I can't help myself from typing. This is nonsense Beware.

By the way, I have some of my photos here, taken today, yes, this very moment of time. :)

Pale, lifeless.

Let's see what would be the difference if I put some make up and other girly stuffs in my face. Let's see how gay I'll look after. Hehe. I'm not use of make ups, but I'm using some. (Sorry for the english. This is just how I express.)














Shooting Incidents

It's SM City Batangas 3-days-sale tomorrow and I don't know if I'll go there or not. First and foremost, I don't have money so it's expected that I'll just stay at home with my junk of lessons and some snacks. Secondly, I'm afraid of what might happen the time I'm inside the mall. This past few weeks there were two incidents that made me confused of roaming around the mall. How will I explain this lah?

1. A jealous lady shot her husband dead.
2. A boy did the same way to his boyfriend. (Imagine, they're only 13&14 years old) I guess.

These two happened inside the mall (SM), which means even inside the mall with a lot of security guards, you're still not safe to roam around. Well, we never know. Perhaps we're their next victim. (Oh please no.)

And I wanna show you one of a leak video of the boy who shot his boyfriend, they're still alive yet the officers are just standing there, watching the two, waiting for their breath to loose. WTH!?

I'm not yet done watching this vid. I just can't watch it.

Photo Spam (I guess)

It's been a month since I last posted in this blog. I've been busy with my nonsense tumblr lately. :( And I've been missing Susan. :(

Last month was a super duper busy month, while this one is a cramming month. Actually, there's no difference between the two. It's our final exam tomorrow but I'm here in front of our computer, updating my blog. :) So here's what we had on our last catering event last August 3, which is supposed to be last month. (September 28 or 28). So here's our set up. (The table, the room design and the stairs, and yeah, us. :P )









Me with my corporate attire. (I stand in front of that orange table to greet the coming guests. I am the photographer too. ^_^ )


Me inside ladies room. :) Oh I mean, no, that's not me. That's a smiley face covering mine. (What!? O_O)



After the function (it's about 7pm) we had our random class picture. :) That's me, the girl on the right.










You can see in my face how tired and exhausted I was for I did a lot of things. U.U



But inspite of that, I still managed to look sexy. Haha! Kidding!



And this one, I just grabbed from my classmate's facebook (thanks Lawrence!), our tour last October 6 at MacroAsia (Airline Catering in the Philippines), Chowking commissary and Resort's World Manila.

Can you point me out? (Yeah you're right! I'm the girl wearing the Domo shirt. :) Thanks Soh for giving me that wonderful gift! :D I love you!)







And here's my Domo Kun collection for now.
