Tutorial: how to make organized notes.

  1. Read the objectives of the lecture. If there aren’t any, flip through the lecture slides and make an outline. This puts into perspective what you need to be learning and what you should get out of this lecture.
  2. Skim the book to get familiar with how the information is divided compared to your outline or objectives. While doing this, you’ll figure out whether or not you need the extra details from the book. Sometimes the lecture is enough and you could keep the textbook just as a reference to things you don’t get.
  3. Write down the first objective and flip to the page in the book that has the information pertaining to that objective. Read the lecture slide then refer to the book for details.
  4. Combine your lecture notes with the textbook information. Do this by rewriting the information in your own words and try to be as concise as possible. 
  5. Keep doing this for every objective. Paste things if it helps.
  6. Make sure that you’re not just copying information. Use visual aids as much as possible. Put the information in a table, flowchart, diagram, etc.. (refer to this post to see how I make my flowcharts).
  7. When you’re done with all your objectives, go through the lecture and your notes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

General tips on how to keep them organized:

  • Be systemic. Making objective-oriented notes is one way to do that. 
  • Use two (or more colors). Color-coding information helps me remember it + it doesn’t look that bad.
  • Section your objectives according to the topic. Then make sure that when you’re writing out the information, it’s in a sequence that’s understandable.

Disclaimer: this is the way I’ve been making my notes since I started med school. By no means am I claiming it’s perfect or that everybody should follow it.

Hope this helps and as always, happy studying :)

“Don’t do that. Don’t skip stages in your life. You’re 19, kiss a few boys and wear your heart on your sleeve. There will come a time when you’re 39 and stuck in a suit, wondering why the hell you were so eager to grow up in the first place.”

What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?

Half of the women I spoke to said , would he admit that’s he’s bit of a sexist, misogynistic — he sees women only in sexual terms?  (x)

This is it, this is how I’m going to explain privilege to the next one.

THOSE LAST TWO GIF THOUGH. MALE FEMINISTS, PLEASE TAKE NOTE. I KNOW YOU DON’T WANNA BE SEXIST BUT PLEASE LISTEN TO WOMEN IF THEY TRY TO EXPLAIN HOW SOMETHING YOU SAID/DID IS PROBLEMATIC AND TAKE IT TO HEART, THANK YOU!

I agree with him. If you think I’m being sexist, let me know and I’ll work on it. I won’t get mad, promise.

honestly this mindset works for any kind of privilege - if someone from an oppressed group calls you out, don’t argue. Fix it.

His breathing is so loud it drowns out the thump of bass from the floor below.

Stiles can’t— It’s been fucking months. Months of So, Derek… we’re in the same lab group, huh? And: hey, if you’re interested, I’ve got a bunch of  resources on Schwartz’ field work I could go over with you, in my dorm room, where my roommate is definitely out of state for the weekend. Not to mention: soooo Derek I was thinking, uh I don’t really fully understand what Professor Fallon was getting at in the last seminar, think you could shed some light on it for me? Over coffee?

Derek Hale is the most brain-stewingly hot science nerd Stiles has laid eyes on in his entire nineteen years of existence. And he’s met a lot. A lot. Even Jenna Montgomery from space camp in eighth grade, who was the owner of the first boob Stiles ever touched has been eclipsed by Derek No You Can’t Try On My Glasses Hale. Derek I Stroke My Stubble When I’m Doing Complicated Calculations Hale disagrees with Stiles on pretty much every theoretical debate opened to the floor, develops a stutter when he’s astounded by someone’s perceived stupidity and remembers your pizza topping combination despite hearing it only once when ordering in for group study sessions. Stiles didn’t stand a chance.

Derek is also the most oblivious.

Did he mention months? Stiles has never been commended on his subtlety. His dad joked once that there would never come a time when he’d get the wrong birthday gift, since he all but published a coupon in the local paper for whatever it was. So Stiles knew it wasn’t something lacking on his end. However, Derek I Must Not Have Been This Hot In High School Hale had innocently rebuked every single one of Stiles’ come-ons with replies like yes I know I was there when they called out our group members and I have the internet and library access too, Stiles and Lydia said I could read her notes -you can have them after I guess.

Honestly.

So. Stiles had resorted to doing things the old fashioned way: keg party and Usher.

Hey, it worked.

Sansa Stark meme: 1/10 scenes

“Sansa!” The boyish shout rang across the yard; Joffrey had seen her. “Sansa, here!”

He calls me as if he were calling a dog, she thought.

what I really love about this scene is that Sansa is trying to emotionally manipulate Joffrey into going to the most dangerous area of the fight. Don’t tell me she’s just a passive player, she picks her battles where she can and this is her shining moment of defiance.

Anonymous said: Hi friend, I’m kinda new in this fandom and I already confused. The half people told that Harry is asshole, who loves sex with hundred of mans and kinda manwhore and other half says that he is sweet,kind, caring person who found his love at 16 years old. I literally drowning in this two different opinions.

Don’t ever believe for a second that Harry Styles is an asshole. He’s proven time and time again that he IS sweet and lovely and caring and has been in love with the same boy since he was 16.

[rings your doorbell] do you have a minute to talk about this wonderful sugarplum? because if harry styles is a womanizing asshole, 2+2=5. let’s take a little journey.

harry asks animals how they’re doing

image

sympathizes so deeply with people less fortunate than himself and then names companies in honor of the friends he has made

image

never even mentioned this himself, which speaks volumes because so many celebrities would have used it for a good bit of publicity 

image

genuinely cares about his fans more than most people care about anything else

image

imageimageimage

image

image

knows that he is an idol and role model to a lot of boys and girls at a very impressionable age and acts accordingly (including several different occasions where he covers his nipples when younger fans ask for a photo and he happens to be shirtless. come on now, the boy is a peach)

image

image

constantly defies gender norms by just being himself

image

image

image

is very passionate about not making women feel victimized or objectified (number one thing under ‘how not to be a womanizer’)

image

image

image

image

i could go on for ages about all of these and then some, to be quite honest, but i think you get the point. and last but not least… found love at 16, you say?

image

yes. yes he did.

sO FUCKING ACCURATE AND SWEET BITE ME
