    Finding Inspiration

    A few years ago, I used to draw/paint/etc. all the time, but not so much anymore. I was wondering how everyone finds inspiration for their projects, whether that be create or something else?

    Tips on Achieving Fluency in a Foreign Language

    I completely agree with the traits you listed! My interest in the language I'm learning is what's been my motivation over the years. I'd also say it's important to have the dedication/time to studying a little bit a day, if only to review so as to retain previously learned information.

    Glad to hear people like Udemy! I've been thinking of trying it for a while but never really got around to it. Knowing that others have enjoyed it should be motivation enough to try it out!

    Meditation Help

    Hi guys! So, I've been trying to get into meditation for a while now with no luck. I originally was going to start meditating before bed, but that usually just leads to me feeling sleepy and going to sleep instead. Would mornings be a good solution? Or has anyone found more luck with...

    Maintaining Motivation

    I have this problem all the time! There isn't any clear way I have found so far to generate motivation, but more often than the not what gets me up and going is thinking about what the end-goal is of the thing I need to do. I really don't want to do homework for classes, but I need to so I can...

    How To Remember Important Dates

    Hi! I also use a calendar, but I've also found it helps to relate dates back to a certain date you already know. For example, I know my own birthday. I memorized my friend's birthday because it was a week before mine, and my cousin's birthday is a month and a day after mine. Good luck!

    Keeping Up What You Memorized

    Memorizing things in the short-time isn't usually difficult for me, probably because I've been doing it for years for school. My main problem is with keeping the knowledge. I'll know it for maybe a week before it all disappears. Anyone have any tips for how to retain the information? Flashcards...

    Self-Help If Resources are Limited

    I'm dealing with essentially the same issue. To help myself, I've been trying to build positive habits based on hobbies, taking walks/exercise, and things I need to do. Drawing used to be my main hobby before I started getting symptoms, so I started out trying to draw once a week before bed...

    Dealing with Adult Acne

    Hi! I'm 21, but I've been having issues with acne for almost a decade. Every time I think I've found something that works, it immediately stops working. I'm afraid I don't have any great tips, but one thing I've found to help is aloe vera gel for the redness. I get the basic non-brand name stuff...

    Google Drive / Google Docs

    Google Docs/Drive has saved my life multiple times! My favorite use for it is as a collaborative study guide for my college courses. It's a great mechanism for sharing information and chatting all in one place. My favorite feature is the ability to make documents available offline. So many...

    A Quote to Motivate

    With some hard work, I'll be graduating this December and moving to where I hope to start a career in January. First, of course, I have to graduate. A quote by Denise Brennan-Nelson has proven to be fairly motivational for me: "Someday is not a day of the week." Simple, but effective! It reminds...
