------------------------------------------------------------- --> BE BETTER.


"Motivation for Harvard Students" or all students basically


1. If you fall asleep now, you will dream. If you study now, you will live your dream.
2. When you think it’s too late, the truth is, it’s still early.
3. The pain of studying is only temporary. But the pain of not knowing—ignorance—is forever.
4. Studying is not about…

"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 & was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!

The moment you break down crying.You hold in everything until the moment you are finally alone in your room. You go to school, put up with all the people from school, you have to hold in your feelings and tears until you get home from school, your relationship with someone is now going down hill, then you have to deal with the shit your parents are giving you. One problem became something so much more to handle, every little thing in your life is going completely wrong and the moment you finally get time to be alone and catch a breather, you just sit there and break down thinking about everything

What do you mean, putting pen to paper?
The first thing I’ve personally found that helps with revision is specifications! No matter what subject you take it will have a specification (an outline of the entire course, what you need to know for the exam), it can be found on the subjects exam board website (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, e.c.t.). Simply find your qualification and subject and tad-ah!
Another great way to revise is past papers! Again, these can be found on exam board websites. I know what you’re thinking ‘ew exam prep’ but trust me, getting used to the structure of the paper is a massive plus. You’ll gradually notice the general trend of questions asked which will help you prepare and if you decide to actually do the paper in timed conditions it will help you get used to answering them!
Start revising ASAP, even if its just getting to know your way around the course specification if will be a massive help and it will mean less cramming!
Make notes in colour, it has been proven that those who make notes in colour (or highlighting) are more likely to remember them!
Find out if you’re a visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learner, by doing this you’ll be able to figure out the best revision techniques for you! (Take a free test here, it’s just multi-answer questions dont worry)
Record yourself speaking your revision notes, if you do this and listen back to them over and over you’ll be helping yourself remember without realising (this is especially good for auditory learners)
Read back the notes you just made and then try again without looking! If you get something wrong, do it again!
Create mindmaps, this is a really good technique no matter what type of learner you are as its easy to picture them in your mind when trying to recall (especially if you do it in colours!)
Create presentations, this is a really great way to revise sub genres of a course! (this website is especially good for making presentations)(it is free as well)
Revise in 20-30minute bursts then have a 5-10minute break!! It has been proven (again) that after a prolonged period of time your brains ability to concentrate decreases, so try to have regular breaks, even if its just a pee-and-tea break!
