1. How I Use Facebook

Well, I actually don't. So...this post is over. Haha!

Blog-Post-A-Palooza (;D)

People often ask me how I come up with things to blog about, and I find the question strange, because my problem is the opposite. I have too much to blog about. Why? Because there’s a whole fast revolution rolling through, and right now – today – is our time to make it all work for us. If we’re going to show people how to use social media to drive meaningful conversations instead of being yet another marketing tool, we have to run out and educate at a break-neck pace, so we can bring more and more thought leaders into alignment with these big and not-so-big organizations who could use our help.

Okay, my rant is over. But still. On my way to target, I thought up 50 things you could title your new blog post. You don't have to read them; this is my way of getting out of doing 4 geometry review packets before my five o'clock meeting with my tutor. So, here we go:

45 Fixing Conferences
46 Making Marketplaces for Media Makers
47 When I Feel Frustrated
48 Branding Strategies I Use

Some of them are very boring, I know: I read all the billboards and tried to get ideas. But I'm going to go through all of these (I hope) in the next year (or two). So wish me luck and here is the blog-post-a-palooza for the next two years of my life!

Don't Push The Red Button

Omg, go here and check this out. It is so freaking amazing I can't even begin to tell you how freaking amazing it is. The only thing I can tell you is DO NOT PUSH THE RED BUTTON!

Lol, anyway, spasm over. It's Sunday, so I'm just kind of chilling. My brother's friend is coming over to help him with his Medieval Torture project thingie for his Medieval Fair that everyone does in 6th grade. Of course he would be assigned the torture chamber. Of course his best friend MATT would just mysteriously be assigned his partner. Of COURSE he has to do the entire project at Matt's house and NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PLAY ROCK BAND WITH MATT'S BRAND SPANKING NEW DRUMS. But that's just me...I've done most of the work for him so far anyway. That's why MATT is coming over HERE. So I'll finally meet this mysterious Matt and see his forked thumb...heheh.

Anyway, smell ya later, peeps!

Okay, I know I haven't updated in a while. Mostly because I've been under a lot of pressure. I mean a LOT of pressure. Hey, why don't YOU try to read Uncle Tom's Cabin in two days? With annotations? And a character list? And a theme walkthrough? Yeah, I thought so. But I finished the reduction...

Anyway, I was sick yesterday. I threw up. A lot. Thank god for washing machines, because otherwise I'd be sleeping in my guest room...ew...

So, I thank you people who took the mission on Mystery Google (that doesn't exist and please continue reading this blog. I will TRY to get a post in every day. Anyway. Parent alert. Smell ya later!

PLAY IT!!! It's addicting, and fun...hey, why was it on the "Unpopular" list in the first place...?

Anywho, have a blast, guys!

Midterms and Finals!!! MUST-READ STUDY TIPS!!!

Ack, exams are coming! With midterms and final exams, students have two goals. First, you want to ace the exams, or at least get decent grades and do as well as possible. Second, there's your sanity; you want to get through exams with a minimum of stress and test anxiety. Fortunately, with the right study skills techniques, you can both manage your stress and do well on the tests. Here are some study skills tips for final exams to help you do well and stay sane.
• Time management. Plan, plan, plan. Before finals begin, get out your calendar and schedule as much of your finals week as possible. Then stick with the schedule.
• Schedule in study breaks. Don't plan to study non-stop for the next five days. You'll go insane, and you'll be too fried to do well on the exams. When you write your schedule, include short study breaks to help you recharge. You'll feel so much better and will be able to concentrate so much more. Here's some suggestions for great study breaks.
• Schedule in sleep. Some people can function well on three hours of sleep a night. Most cannot. You'll do much better during exams if your mental state is good, and sleep is essential for this.
• Exercise. There's no better source for stress relief. Just don't overdo it to the point that you're procrastinating heavily. Go for short, stress-relieving activities, like racquetball or a treadmill run. And don't underestimate the value of a brisk walk.
• Prioritize. You have limited time to study and will have to choose what to spend the most time with. You could spend hours and hours on that math exam because if you do really well, you might be able to pull of a C. Or you can spend hours and hours on a history exam because if you do well, you've got a good shot at an A. It's up to you.
• Form effective study groups. Just don't waste your time with lousy ones. Here are some tips for effective study groups.
• Free your schedule. As much as possible, eliminate other responsibilities. Work fewer hours. Put off social events. Definitely put off shopping.
• Ask your professor for help. If you're confused about your notes or the readings, go to the resident expert. This works much better if you don't put off studying until the last minute. It's a good idea to read through all of your notes before you start to study, so that you can inquire early about things that confuse you.
• Keep things in perspective. What's the worst thing that can happen if you don't do well on this test? Excessive stress will make you crazy and hurt your performance on tests, so as much as you can, relax. And if you're having serious problems with anxiety during final exams, seek help at your school's counseling center. This is a common problem that schools are well equipped to help you with.
