This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download. 

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive. 

not necessarily art related but as someone who couldn’t afford their textbooks this semester this is a godsend

REBLOGGING because after a little digging, I found my $200 textbook for free in PDF form.

friendly reminder that this exists since I know we’re all going back to college soon

Will reblog every time I see it.

omfg i’ve been looking for this ahhh thank the heavens!



Tutorial: how to make a study schedule.

  1. Make a reference sheet with separate lists for each subject. This reference sheet is used to orient your daily studying.
  2. List the material you need to study for each subject. Be more specific than you would be on a study schedule and make sure you put down everything you need to go over.
  3. On your schedule, highlight the exam dates and deadlines and put down any relevant information.
  4. Using your reference sheet, assign certain material to go through each day.

Scheduling tips

  • If you haven’t been working on study material throughout the semester; schedule days before your study leave to work on study sheets for revision, flash cards, summaries, whatever you use to study. 
  • Take a day to gather your study material before your study leave begins. Like the weekend classes end or so. This will save you a lot of time when you sit down to study every day.
  • Schedule your studying so that you start studying for the last final first, and the first final last. Make sure you start this early enough to give yourself time to revise for the subjects you need to.
  • If you have a day between each of your finals, take the night of the final off and revise for the next exam the day after. If not, take the couple of hours after your exam off then revise for the next one.
  • Schedule the harder/heavier material in a subject first, so that you work on that material when you have more energy.
  • If you’re taking subjects that you have difficulty with, or subjects with a heavy workload; schedule catch up days. However, don’t let that encourage you to slack off. Try to stick to your schedule and only rely on the catch up days if you really need to, and if you don’t; then it’s a day off!
  • Also, schedule days off… a day or if you can’t afford it, half a day. I can’t stress how important it is to take time for yourself, it’ll help you avoid burnout. 

Disclaimer: this is the way I’ve been making study schedules since I started college. By no means am I claiming it’s perfect or that everybody should follow it.

I’m sorry I’m posting this by the end of the year when a lot of people are already done with exams, but perhaps it’ll be helpful for people taking summer courses now? And also for next year :)


easy egg fried rice



  • 2 rice-cooker cups dry rice
  • sesame oil
  • 1/2-1 medium onion, chopped
  • a good-size chunk of peeled ginger, grated or finely minced
  • maybe half a tablespoon of minced garlic, don’t worry too much about it
  • 2-3 cups fresh or frozen vegetables (carrots, peas, corn, whatever you’ve got)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • soy sauce
  • rice vinegar
  • green onions, chopped (just the green parts)
  1. Cook the rice in a rice cooker. While it’s doing its thing, chop stuff, or clean stuff, or whatever needs to be done to get your kitchen ready to make food.
  2. Once the rice is fully cooked, unplug your rice cooker. Heat the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add the onion, ginger, and garlic and saute until softened, maybe 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add any tough fresh vegetables that’ll need softening, e.g. carrots, parsnips. Saute until tender. If it looks like it’s going to burn, add water a tablespoon at a time.
  4. Add your frozen or already-soft vegetables — corn, peas, etc. Cook until no longer frozen.
  5. Scoot the pile of vegetables to one side. Pour the beaten eggs into the other. Scramble them. Once they’re starting to cook properly, mix them with the veggies to finish cooking.
  6. Add a couple of generous splashes of soy sauce and a smaller splash of vinegar. Stir in rice and chopped green onions. Keep stirring until the rice is basically uniform in color.
  7. Enjoy!
