• Anonymous asked : Out of curiosity, do you know your Myers-Briggs personality type? I know the idea of boxing people into 16 convenient little categories is flawed, but humor me?

    I did not. But those little quizzes can be fun. So I did a free one.

    INTJ:

    Have original minds and great drive for implementing their ideas and achieving their goals. Quickly see patterns in external events and develop long-range explanatory perspectives. When committed, organize a job and carry it through. Skeptical and independent, have high standards of competence and performance – for themselves and others.

    • You have distinct preference of Introversion over Extraversion (67%)
    • You have distinct preference of Intuition over Sensing (75%)
    • You have strong preference of Thinking over Feeling (88%)
    • You have distinct preference of Judging over Perceiving (67%)

    I’m pretty surprised that I only scored “distinct” preference of introversion over extraversion. I would think it ought to be more. *shrug* These tests aren’t the end all, though, of course.

    If anyone else feels like taking the little test I used this one. And I got the description from here.

    Aw, thank you!

  • Anonymous asked : none of the links to your studying master post are working :( it looks really useful!

    I’m guessing you’re looking at an old post with old links? If you go here all the correct links are there.

  • Oh man. What a great birthday.

    As a perfectionist, I struggle with the idea of there not being the “perfect” event. Like a “perfect birthday” for example. I’m glad that wasn’t my focus yesterday, because my day was wonderful with Drew.

  • Birthday dinner with my mom and sister at Red Lobster. We had a mussel appetizer, too. Mmmm. Then my mom did the little embarrassing birthday shit. 👏🎉🎈😑 Ruined it. I think she does it on purpose because she knows we hate it. Ugh.

  • withinthisgarden asked : Oooh, where did you get the book stand? And is it good with heavier textbooks? I always feel like I'm hunched over my books because of glare from the shiny pages. Also, nice to see a fellow color-coding note-taker!

    I bought it on Amazon here! I bought the biggest one they have, but there are other sizes. They also have versions with stands you can perch atop the main stand if you want more books there. I personally think that’s a big overkill (I’d rather have two separate stands) but it’s a cool idea.

    It is good with heavy textbooks! That’s one of the primary reasons I bought it! Before I had a foldable plastic stand that did technically hold my big textbooks but the little plastic arms couldn’t hold the pages down… Because they snapped when I tried. I was being gentle, too! That plastic one is here. It’s portable which is nice, but I only use it for my iPad, notebooks, or pieces of paper.

    I think my color-coding has gotten better but I’m still trying to find a good system. :p

    While stapling neurology journal articles, I stapled my thumb when I was refilling the stapler.

  • I went to the famous Budda Market the other day.

    Omg so much cheap stuff. Most of the stuff we got was $1 or $1.50. I got a bag of berry Starbursts for $2.50, which was the most expensive thing.

    A box of organic protein bars for $1.50.

    A BIG BOTTLE OF HOT SAUCE FOR $1. OMG.

    Would will go again.

  • cloudnumber1 asked : Hi I'm a big fan of your blog! You've done really well? I have two questions... One is what are some tips you can give me to manage homework,volunteering, youth group, math studying, exercising, studying for classes, learning to drive, taking care of your health, and getting ready for SSAT (I'm canadian), in one week. Also, how do YOU manage your time? Do you have some tricks up your sleeves ;) lol??? Thanks!!

    Hmmm in one week. That sound like a lot! Haha. I think you can do it. Certain things on that list don’t necessarily have to be done every day (such as exercising — it can be done with rest days), either.

    What I would do is first schedule the things that just cannot be put off. The things that are mandatory and high priority. For me that would be class (of course), studying, tutoring, preparing for tutoring, and so on. Make sure you put those things on your schedule, too! I suggest you try to plan out when you will eat lunch and dinner every day so you can work around that as well. Now that you’ve got that stuff down, carefully add the other things. I already suggested that exercise could be every other day or whatever you want. For volunteering perhaps save that for the weekend when your schedule is not as busy. Perhaps put learning to drive on the weekends, too.

    I have a post I made a few months ago that showed my schedule. You can see that post here. I also have a couple posts about tracking productivity here and here.

  • Hello.

    So I have been away for a few days anyway house/dog sitting for some friends. I wasn’t really using my laptop. But when I tried to restart my laptop for updates I got a gray screen. Meh. I uninstalled Tumblr on my phone so I’ve just not really been on here. I’m trying to get work done anyway, so maybe that’s good haha.

  • Lunch. Kimchi, crab sticks, and leftover guac. May seem weird but it’s actually a pretty balanced and healthy meal if you think about it.
