STUDY TIP #1 :
Personalize your notes. Personalizing your notebook is just as important!
More study tips coming if you will be interested :)

The amazing person that inspired me to do this, was a blogger and a youtuber Kalyn Nicholson! She is the most amazing and inspiring person, and you should definetly check her out .. Here is her video ''click on me''



Tired of studying out of plain textbooks and want to look forward to sitting down and taking notes and doodle and daydream? 
I can show you a way to personalize your diary, notebook, whatever. It is a pretty quick DIY and you only need 
 You will just go to your favourite website (links above..those are just my preferences) and pick out pictures that suit you best. 



I went for pictures that remind me of what I aspire to, what I can achieve with hard work, and just ''warm and cozy'' pictures, because I like to be comfortable while studying.




After you have picked out the photos, just print them (I print 9 little pictures a page, I just find it most convenient and easy to work with), cut them out and start to put and glue them on the covers of your notebooks. :) 


At the end, you should have something looking like this 

Of course not all pictures fit, so you just have to work it out, I made this on a divider so I could show you from the back side that I put the pictures together like puzzles.


You can use sticky tape OR modge podge, Just let me remind you, if you use modge podge, once you are finished, go over the whole cover to kind of seal the whole thing. Modge podge dries transparent.

And have fun #DIY-ing :)

  1. I'm not a student anymore, but this could be a cool activity I could do with my students! Personalizing stuff makes school much more comfortable. And sometimes a place of contemplation when things get boring ;)

  3. Being comfortable while studying - as long as not too comfy that will make you fall asleep :) But being inspired certainly helps put the mind in a good setting to take in more information and connect to it to actually remember.
