On my Instagram I show you a glimpse of my daily college life. I study in Amsterdam and I go there by train and the subway. I travel for my college almost an hour and if there are no public transport delays, I don’t mind the travel. After years of switching studies and personal setbacks, am I finally in a good place. I am in the middle off my third year of college and still need one year to graduate. Even though I got difficult reports to make and I have to make hard exams, is my motivation still high to make the most of it!
Sometimes I need to remind myself to stay productive. I shared with you how I prepare for my college, it is still the way how I do it. Planning and making to-do lists help me very well. Let us be honest, same old routines take the best of us! Without it I don’t know what to do and with it, I forget to take care of myself because I’m so busy with it. My study does bring me stress, especially these last months I have left. My simple ways to relieve stress comes definitely in handy!
So, I study Pedagogy. Freely translated it means educational theory. The British encyclopedia says about pedagogy that it is a study of teaching methods, including the aims of education and the ways which such goals may be achieved, the field relies heavily on educational psychology, which encompasses scientific theories of learning, and to some extend on the philosophy of education, which considers the aims and value of education from a philosophical perspective.
The target audience are children and young adults aged from 0 to 23 years. The main focus is to create a safe haven for them, involving the parents or guardians and if relevant, other care providers. The reason why I chose this study is because I’m very curious about the human mind. The second thing is that I’m a very caring individual and would like to help others with their hardships and psychological struggles. I get a lot of satisfaction from a counseling process where I see a client grow and getting back on his or her own two feet.
This is it Loves; this is the reason why I don’t post often on my blog. But don’t worry, college is almost over which means, almost back to my blogging business!

College; the place I spend most of my time and I must admit, it can be challenging. I don’t know about you Loves but I have a hate/love relationship with my studies especially when I’m not prepared or I have a workplace that is a mess and I mean this not only on my desk but also my home. So, my first tip: create a good working place. It can be your room, at the library or the study places at your college and university. Pick a place where you not get easily distracted. When you’re living home, like me. I let them know that I don’t want to be disturbed and that I’m only available in case of a fire. Its sounds pernickety but because of this you can focus on your studies.
Having good stationary is half the work and this is the part I love to put afford in! I’m quite obsessed with cute pastel coloured pens and marble printed notebooks, well with everything that is marble printed. I vow for making things your own and personal so don’t feel embarrassed if you want matching stationary or even a themed one. Feel free! Let’s admit it; it feels good to have those frills.
Whenever I have home work to do or some reading, I place it into my to-do organizer. These organizers come in very good use when you place it on your desk or close to your view to remind yourself that a task is waiting to be done and when you finished it, place it in your done organizer before you store it permanent or you want to take it with you to hand it in. I find this systematic organizing very helpful during my studies and personal tasks.
I find binders also helpful during my studies. Using tabs to separate paper for different subjects, it is just a good way to use one binder for many subjects. I use this mostly to write summaries for my exams. To give myself small reminders and if I want to emphasize important words or tasks I use post its. I stuck them on the inside of my binder, now I have it always close to my sight.
To stay motivated and having an overview of all my homework, daily tasks and to-do’s I use printouts. I found online perfect ones! I got mine calendar from Scattered Squirrel and other printouts from The Organize Student. Definitely credits to the owners! I use them daily, they are easy to use and perfect for an organized freak like me.
