For those who hate to, love to or adore to study.
Don't hate yourself for not being fast enough or smart enough or good enough -
all progress is born from education and application and you educate and apply yourself all the time - whether you want to or not.
You're always learning.
You're always growing.
So study in style - stress-free, but filled with curiosity.

"Why you are not and will never be worthless"
You have knowledge inside of you that I can’t even dream of. You’ve seen things I’ll never see. What you have, it’s valuable. There are things- and be honest: you know what things – that make you different. That have made you the person you are today. Maybe it’s not what most schools are looking for. But that’s okay. It doesn’t mean it’s useless. No, it’s worth a hell of a lot.
You’re a treasure box.
There are crowns born from of pain and necklaces made out of loss, there are gowns sewn with joy and gold coined with stories. Every idea you ever had is a pearl. Every emotion a diamond.
Only you can bring this to the table.
And this is the case with every human being you see. That’s what’s so beautiful about it.
We’re all different and it makes us invincible – if I don’t know the answer and you don’t know the answer, the odds are high that one of the other 7 billion people or so will. Someone always does.
Everyone has this richer inner world inside of them and even though we’re fundamentally similar, and we somehow find ways to compare our worlds and communicate, there will always be corners and alleys and rivers and forests inside your head that nobody else has.
Don’t look down on other people. Don’t look down on yourself.
You have knowledge inside of you that I can’t even dream of.

Don’t ever forget that.

What is love?The ability to spend time with someone or something and enjoy the hell out of it - even if you’re in a bit of a rocky patch right now. You know it gets better. And that’s the secret: Spend time with it. Get intimate with it. Let it become your second nature. Put it to bed and wake it with orange juice. It’s impossible to be bad at something that you adore so deeply and spend so much time with. You will evolve together. And this will happen with everything you spend time with - watching a certain series, reading certain books, lying on the floor, listening to music, calculus, growing strawberries, jogging, meta-analyzing, solving riddles, cooking soup, understanding theories, building light-bulbs, anything.No matter what you do, as long as you love it, you are constantly driven to excel at it. And the more time you spend with it, the higher are the odds that it’ll actually happen.Quality time. It matters.

I personally find it very helpful to think that the book you have to read for class/a course was written by your scientific arch-enemy and you have to find all the discrepancies and baloney to discredit that empty-headed, fatalistic nonsense-spouting wallowhead of a scholar.Preferably with the face pictured above. Sometimes, derision can be quite productive.(picture by http://shoomlah.tumblr.com/)

"My mind," he said, "rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. I can dispense then with artificial stimulants. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation. That is why I have chosen my own particular profession,—or rather created it, for I am the only one in the world."

Never forget.
Or do forget. You know. Don’t let me tell you what to do.(But if you don’t let me now, you already did let me) Sorry. I didn’t want to force this onto you. Maybe we should end this. It’s been great. It was me. I’m so sorry.I always loved your pancakes)

Sleeping is as important as studying itself. All the debris lying around your brain gets turned into exciting stories and when you wake up, your mind is clear as day. It’s also cozy. And fuzzy. And warm. And it improves your memory (http://www.good.is/posts/if-you-sleep-after-you-study-you-ll-remember-more)!It costs time, but it really pays off - don’t cut corners when it comes to hugging your pillow :)

Study Vocab #2

neuronblitz (n.) - the precise moment in which something is understood for the first or rediscovered after a long time. It’s like lightning striking the learner from within and may be accompanied by widened eyes, gasping for air and straightening one’s posture.

Their intensity may range from mild

Study Vocab #1

to lope - to falter into yourself while reading a text. When your eyes keep scanning, but your brain doesn’t process anything and your mind is either blank or filled with obscure images.

This is why we keep reading and watching and walking and talking and getting out of bed in the morning - there is so much to be discovered and we’re going to find it!
