How To Motivate Yourself | Productivity

Image
A lot of people see me as a really motivated person. I, however, know that it's actually something that I always struggle with. Whenever it gets to exam season, I find it really difficult to psych myself up to do some work and I try and tell myself that I'll still get good results if I spend hours and hours watching Netflix - ha!
However, in my years of procrastination, I've been forced to look for ways of making myself feel compelled to do some work. Here's what I've learned:

Personality Tests:

Personality tests are potentially my favourite thing to do. I love a good quiz so doing a quiz about something I know everything about (myself haha) and that there's no wrong answers to just makes me so happy. Plus, I love learning about aspects of myself that I hadn't really considered before and discovering what kind of job or life I'm likely to be suited for. 
Basically, what I'm trying to say here is that today I'm going to walk you through two of my favourite personality tests and give you the links to the websites where you can go and take them yourself.

Is Voting Important? | Politics

Yesterday was the date of my County Council elections and, since I'm now 18, my first time voting. As someone who studies politics for my A-Levels and who is ridiculously excited about the general election on the 8th June, it's not really a surprise to learn that I think voting is really important and something that everyone should do.

It's very easy to feel disconnected from yourself when you're busy. What with studying and deadlines and work and moving, I'm beginning to feel as though I'm just acting on auto-pilot and not taking enough time to check in with myself. However, I am working on it and I've made it my goal for the rest of this month to spend more time thinking and less time avoiding it.

Why I'll Never Bullet Journal

According to their website, bullet journals are a "customisable and forgiving organisation system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above. It will teach you to do more with less." It feels like everyday I'm reading another blog post about how all the different symbols, colours and the hours spent drawing out the index and the future log have "changed my life." But I don't just don't buy it. Here's why:

Spring Cleaning 101:

Image
I was going to start this blog post by saying that I'm incredibly sorry for it's lateness but I've been listening to the Guilty Feminist Podcast and I've realised that when it comes to my blog, the only person I'm really accountable to is myself. So, whilst this blog post is slightly late, that's okay. Worse things have happened!

Anyway, I love Spring. For me, it's definitely a refreshing time; a clean slate; a chance to sort everything out. That's why I really enjoy spring cleaning and taking the opportunity to get my space organised and clean. So, I'm going to share with you three ways in which I'm going to Spring clean this month:
