Study tips for surviving finals!

With finals in full swing here at UT, I thought I would share some of my study tips!

TIP 1: TAKE OUT YOUR CONTACTS & PUT ON YOUR GLASSES

  • Contacts prevent oxygen from getting into your eye, which puts causes strain. Chances are, your glasses also have anti-glare built in and will protect your eyes from the computer screen you’re looking at. Glasses let your eyes breathe and will make it easier to study. 

TIP 2: LIGHT AN INVIGORATING CANDLE

  • Scents like orange, ginger, lemon, and eucalyptus are uplifting, release tension, and sharpen the senses. When trying to cram in those last minute notes, we all need every extra bit of sharpness we can get. 
  • Not only is the flicker of an orange flame pretty to look at, but it’ll keep you awake.
  • P.S. I’ve had an orange ginger candle from Bath & Body Works burning for the past 6 hours and I have yet to feel sleepy! 

TIP 3: DRINK LOTS OF WATER

  • Stay hydrated is extremely crucial when studying late into the night. You’re already pushing your body and trying to force information into your head.
  • Drinking cold water can jolt you awake when you feel tired 
  • It’s better than drinking coffee, which comes with an inevitable crash 

TIP 4: STAY OFF FACEBOOK

  • Unless your class has a facebook group and you are actually quizzing each other, stay off facebook. 
  • You’ll focus better and get more done in a shorter amount of time. 

TEXAS-SIZED CHANGES!

Things are changing here on MyGoldenAge! First of all, MyGoldenAge is NOW HKGoldenAge!!! I have been working really hard and starting my own YouTube channel just like many of my followers have been saying I should. It will launch either this weekend or early next week and I will post the link here! 

Also, now that it’s now HKGoldenAge, things are looking a little more… golden, to match the theme. I’ve had a couple followers ask me, “Why GoldenAge?” My name, Hoang-Kim means Golden Age in Vietnamese. The GoldenAge doesn’t refer to a time of riches and jewels, but a time or peace and harmony, where the streets are made of gold and no one has to lock their doors since no one would steal from each other. I’ve decided to incorporate this into my username and I hope you guys like it!

PLEASE send me your feedback and comments, negative or positive, I love reading them and it helps me improve!

I hope you enjoy the new look and best of luck studying for finals!
