I got. So we're going to talk about what most people don't talk about. And that is the worry and the stress of randomized roommates, whether it's on campus or if you live off campus. And then we're going to just touch on the fact that even if you do have, like a roommate coming into on college, you know what to just be mindful of it and things that you can take to make sure you maintain that friendship. S O. Starting off both my freshman in my sophomore year, I was, um, kind of with randomize roommates. I had met a girl at the end of my freshman year, and then she became I remember we were relieved that close of friends, but my freshman year it was completely random and going into it's like you have to adapt to somebody else's lifestyle, like how they're like they're cleanliness, you know, their personality and things. And then you have to think of you guys like Don't hit it off the back and you guys are friends and they're bringing their friends in. And then, of course, like bad time, like I usually like to stay up late sometimes but you don't have a room and he wants to see. But I can't be up making sure these noise, having lights on, playing music, doing things like that. You really have to be mindful, especially from a female's perspective, you know, just like cleanliness and everything. But, like on the other side of a male perspective, like having roommates, I know Charles had a very unique living situation. Like a lot of places you just have, like the standardized resident call. You have to twenty five beds and then you just share a common area bathroom. But Charles is goingto yeah. So my first semester I wass, eh, a room with five other boys. Five other random boys called supplements Supplement album just temporary housing until they can fill you in tow a dorm because people do end up leaving unfortunately, like halfway through the semester or first semester, because, you know, they, you know, family emergencies or they don't want you on campus. So I was in supplemental my freshman year, but I got place, like, two weeks after. Yeah, I was there for pretty much the entire semester. It was a very challenging experience for me on ly because normally you can address it is one person's, you know, personality. But imagine having adjusted for other people's personalities. And then cleanliness was not a thing, especially being a boy. Some, you know, some boys are just not as clean as you want them to be. That room was not claimed. I was having several issues. Bedtime wasn't a thing because it was like a big space. Just, you know, everyone wasn't have their own individual corner basically, and I was just in the middle and no one really believed in bad times. People come in whenever they wanted. Teo and we were kind of in the basement of the residence hall, so across the hall was pretty much the like lounging area. So we heard people in the lounge area in the computer lab. So it really wasn't the best situation in the washing machine in the washing machine was right there. So people have passed us what? We want to keep our door open because it was hot. When you're like that, people will be looking at us. It was kind of very awkward. And mind you, when I met Charles, like I knew who was in supplemental, but the supplemental I was in, it was just a room with two other girls. And I'm sure we had a bunk bed with one girl. And then the other girl had a bed to herself on the side of the room. So that was just when I moved out. They would just remove them part of the bunk bed. So I was like, Oh, he's just in a living thing because he would always complain about it. And then I like I went out to his room one day and there's like, this huge basement concrete basement, and it looks like a like a camp, like it was pretty much a prisoner way. Don't want to say that to scare you guys off because you know every single thing you experienced in college, you have to choose to either learn from it and grow from it, grow from it or, you know, like enforces. Some people do end up leaving. But just seeing that type of living situation was just I thought I struggled like my first couple of weeks and supplementary, but I cannot imagine living with leg ten other people and then just the claiming miss and just being in like a dark place with no natural lighting there it was like it was very bad. However, I'm glad it happened to me because when I did get placed out, I went to another residence hall, actually, air condition, which was great on DH, my roommate. He was dirty, too, and he didn't believe in bad times. And it was just it was a lot, but since I dealt with it the previous semester, pretty much help me deal with it from that point on, and I for this year I live off campus with Jalen, and we had a random roommate as well. And that was a very interesting experience, However, because I had the skills of dealing with, you know, that particular situation in supplemental housing with five other people dealing with the one other random army that we did get. It wasn't as bad, however, one thing I would say when you do live off campus or you do pick to live with your friend in a dorm, be careful on ly because living with your friends is an exciting time. It's exciting. However, you're going to get tied to your friend Oh, that is an understatement. I remember hearing that my freshman year, like, do not room with your friends because usually when I had my my roommate my freshman year, we did not get along like we got into arguments and everything in line. Just imagine, like getting in to argue with someone you don't know, like you can go to a safe place. You can go to your friend's room and you could just calm down and relax. But, you know, if you're getting into a fight with me and Charles like after we became close friends, when we get into a fight, we have to be in the same house like that same energy. Everything is gonna have the HUS like the hostile environment. So just, like, be mindful and like if you are going to live like there's nothing better than living with your best friend, like living with someone you trust, who's clean, who respects you and your space and you respected like their space. But you just have to be willing to work through the things that you're gonna go through things, not even in a French. But there's bringing, you know, just such a huge responsibility into that friendship. You're gonna have to be mindful because there's times I just want to like I get angry. But I want to go talk to my best friend and there in the room next door, like in the same house of me. So you're just gonna have to have patience is definitely think you're going tohave and having a random roommate is not all that bad. Trust me because you learn a lot from a person that you don't know and you learn about a lot about yourself. You learn a lot about them and you never know. There's so many things you can miss out one by not having a random roommate. It's okay. And you make friends that way having random roommates. So ultimately it wasn't bad, like mice Element. I think I made two friends with, you know, with those boys that were in there, and they're still my friends to this day is actually a great experience. They weren't all bad and just have to always find the light of the situation and make it positive, no matter how negative it can be. And trust me, your living experience to be great your living experience is what you make it not what the world make it. The world makes it the housing complex. The resident makes it. It's what you make it. So if you put that energy in and set rules set boundaries, you know, and it's gonna come back tenfold and it will be great, trust me. And that's what Jalen idea with our past remains. And it worked out and it was pretty great. So, yeah, I think that the one thing to take from this is just, you know, you can always like It's okay to, like here, buy some other people. But you have to know that your experience is your own experience, like everyone has a different personality. Everybody, thanks to different way, ask different way lives a different way. So just be be, like accepting to change, because it's going to be a big change, like you're gonna have to deal with the ones eating schedule. Someone's cleaning the schedule like if you're living in a house and like you can't wash clothes at the same time. Like you know, are you know if the dishes are in the same, but you're gonna have to you don't have to set a schedule. It's just like responsibility is like the biggest thing that you're going tohave. You're going to learn, you know, living in a residence hall or off campus with any type of roommate. Regardless, if you know them prior or they're around a person. Like I said, it's not all negative having random roommate and I wouldn't discourage anyone getting around. A roommate actually, like you should get a random or make all that, because that's how you can make you meet new people. You learn new things and you learn more about yourself and how you are as a person because you could feel someone is this exact thing. Person is you exact displays, exact same everything, however they live with you and I'm like it's like a pigsty like this is that that's not what I want. But you would never know that if you don't explore in life is about exploration, so why not get around the roommate? Why not have fun and see without there? So yeah, alright, guys that his roommate talk one on So we're gonna talk about our favorite places right now. I have Charles, my roommate, following me around today, and right now we're in downtown. So technically, not kids. This is my favorite part of campus. Downtown campus is a portion campus, but there's like the only difference is that they're two different, like police have campus police and then, like, stay calm, stay calm. Police control downtown. Keep so right next to us is my favorite part. I come here about every day. Even if I don't right. I live all keeping. So when on campus, and I'm going to my classes and I need to grocery shop, I don't have to worry about taking the bus to extraneous places. I could just come downtown, give it. I need to get done within the classroom and they come down here grocery shop and then they have eighteen right under and I am a big clothing person. So I love clothes and has she been affordable? We're not here right now, but also there is Urban outfitters on campus. It's very convenient because state college doesn't have to be small and like closest smalls about forty five minutes away and That's still not the greatest small, especially if you're from a town used to a big mall, like over two hundred stores like luxury brands. So this is my favorite part of campus and Charles Fissures. My favorite part of campus is pretty much the same only because I love the downtown aspect. And the downtown part of you know, our campus is pretty much the culture of our campus. Heart of our campus is always advance, like Hogwarts festering somewhere. There's beings before mean there's funnel cakes. There's just always some type of engagement downtown. You see, there's always cars. There's always students. You see people walking around with bags going into teaching him. And I never thought I'd be, you know, in Mommy, where that I wear everyday the classroom with my book bag going on trial close because, you know, seeing someone, a backpack and a mall like Okay, what, like so comet on kid is a good thing, actually, behind us, there's actually photography. Studios of Charles actually gets his hair cut over here, so that's another good thing. There's various places. Get your hair cut, this donut, different little offices and then also another great thing about downtown. You get downtown, you can live downtown. So the livelihood of campus. You know, of course, there's clubs. There's there. He is pleased East. There's like five guys I'd help you with Starbuck News and Company Sarah Brown. Various international restaurants like and that's Josh is like, Not only do we have a bunch of people like cultural wise have restaurants like back it up. Not only do we have, you know, very different countries, we have Japanese restaurants. We have Thai restaurants, Chinese restaurants. We have. It's just it's it's very diverse and that still, like I said, That's the one thing I love about downtown we promote here. A penny saver from what we are, what it's all about. Diversity, inclusion in the downtown aspect? Exactly. Same as you can see, there is a pride of black up, as it is, pride aware this month, and as you can see at the downtown, does take part of that. It is great to see that, um, a promise tree, actually, right now there is a street like full of rain balls, which is very exciting for me. They turn all across walks into rain bows and It's just they make you feel welcome. And like being downtown makes you feel like, yeah, when your own people feel like like I got a way of being downtown like you're still on campus. But, you know, they're stand this walking around prospects, students walking around. And we're really just getting to know your student body, anything with a date. And you just feel like your home. As often says about we are home. It just feels great. So, thank you, guys. And this is our favorite part of this. All right, guys, this is my farewell video. I just learned, first of all, thank you guys for coming on the square with me for being a part of it. It was definitely challenging for me walking around campus and being so open about videotaping and things like that. But just one piece of advice I want to give everybody is just, you know, make your mark. Trust yourself. Trust your good trust your instincts about going to college. You know, they're going to be times where you're gonna be scared, Tol Only because it's your first time to be with home. It's your first time making decisions on your own and, you know, just having this big wave of responsibility. But, you know, just dressing in yourself. You know, surrounding yourself with positive vibes, positive energy, you know, positive things, you know, not letting petty. That's getting in the way and just, you know, believing in yourself. You know, nobody's going to believe in yourself like you believe in yourself. You know, I'm not the victim advice I would give to those who are, you know, kind of scared, especially about academic wise. You're like, Hey, I don't think I'm smart enough for such a big school like this. You know, we all have our own challenges. Everybody has really gives. Everybody has, you know, my strengths are my friends weakened. Since the Andersons are might mean witnesses, I advise you to please, you know, take advantage of tutoring. Penn State learning lion tutors, air. So many tutoring opportunities. You know, I think that you know, of course, you know, you have to be a little bit smart to get into college. But, you know, there's some things that I do struggle with, and, you know, even if you, you know, get a homework assignment may go to a tutor, make sure it's right. You know, even in putting your college, like in earth mental science, they have graduate students. They have students who got an A in the forces who were able to tutor. So just don't be afraid to ask other people. Don't be afraid to break out and make connections, you know, talk to your professors, you know? No professor is not going. Teo, be there for you. I mean your pain. So, you know, just trust herself, you know, have a network. Don't be for mental health of this thing, you know, costumey overwhelming, especially my freshman year and being out of state, you know, it was very, very hard and just, you know, utilizing counseling services. You know, talking to somebody letting it out because keeping a ball and is going to affect you within your schoolwork and everything's, you know, just love yourself. Trust itself. And you'LL have a great college journey, right? feet on the ground with head and Big John and say I'm going to be doing a dorm tour for you guys. If you guys know I'm at Penn State University and I'm here for some recession, so I might do a fault from tour later because I don't have a different dorm, but kinda gonna meet the same stuff. So let me know down below. If you want to see both the summer and fall or just the summer, you has been requesting this video like crazy. So here I am bringing it to you. I'm so excited. I've been waiting to do this video for what feels like ever now. But I really want my doorman. I'm happy how it came together. So I am really, like, happy with the finished product. Have I forgot to mention any stuff where it's from? You should definitely go watch both of my dorm holes because they definitely have something in there somewhere about where I got things. So if I forget to mention it, that's where it'll be. I think that I haven't already definitely subscribe down below, because I am a college freshman now, and I couldn't be more excited to make college videos. So if you, like, call on two videos and definitely subscribe. So, yeah, let's just get right into the dorm tour. Also, I'm not showing you my remains side of the room because it's her stuff, but I don't want to like computer privacy or anything, so I'm just gonna stick to my side of the room. So on the back of my door, we have to hoax. This is my hook. I just have my rain jacket. Hang on here and then you turn right. That's my roommate's closet. My roommates dusk. And then this is my side of the room down here. I just have this pink robe from T. J. Maxx is actually my roommates beanbag chair. And then my favorite part of my room is I have these curtains hanging up. I just hung a string and I put some command hooks to hang the string. And then I just read that through the curtain. And so that way, if I needed, like, a little privacy or something, yes, the currents are see through. But still I just like having my own little privacy if I wanted to, even if it's just a little bit. So this is my bed, my comforters from Target. It's fuzzy on the inside, and that has this pattern on the outside. This throw pillow is from home goods that little floozy pills like bears from Walmart behind my bed, I kind of keep, like, a couple of things. So first I have this little light board that I don't have batteries and this is don't worry, be happy that I have this little three picture thing with me and my boy from me and my friends and me and my sister. And then I just have a couple things up here that I like to use when I'm like sleeping a little time. Like in my glass case of any my glasses. Headphones. I have a sleep mask because it's very bright in here in the morning, and I never slept with a sleep mask in my life, but sober in here in the morning. So I have thio hair, tied tissues and then the sign just says Work for a college out for applause would like to express not to impress. Don't strive to make your president noticed just to make your absence dealt So I've had them for a while. I honestly think I got it from Claire's when I was, like, 12. Anyways, moving right along here overhears kind of my desk area play printer's down here, and then I just have this three shelf thing on the bottom shelf. I have three pictures, and then up here I have two basket things. This one kind of has, like paper clips, a stapler, like all that kind of stuff in it. This just has a bunch of random stuff in it that I need for life, you know, and then up here to have this box paper, like printer papers in it. And then my sister wrote me like, open one letter. So that's what's up there next to my desk. I have used drawers and they just have closing them. They're mismatched, and they're really ugly, but they're yours, and they hold a lot of clothes. So then here's my desk. I really don't sit at my desk a lot, so it's a little like not practical, I guess. Sissy cushion I got from Wal Mart and this is my backpack. I usually keep it here. I bought this little mirror from old because the lighting is so bad in here when I have to do my makeup. So it's super helpful to have that. Just this lamb from home goods. I don't know where that's from, but it's his life is met. Four good friends in great adventure. This court board came in my dorm, so I ended up getting wrapping paper and using that as, like, a backdrop for it. I got it at home goods. Super cute. And it really adds like a nice such my calendar is currently a mess. Right now, you could see my friend who wrote on it. Um, but I'm pretty sure this from home goods. My friend got it for me for graduation. Um, but yeah, that's just my calendar. And right here I keep a box fan. Um, we keep the window closed because we actually about an air conditioner. But at night, I like to turn the fan on under my desk. I have this little drawer, PSA, and I use that when my makeup, my hair stuff and a little like miscellaneous things down there, we just have the trash bin. And then right here is our air conditioner I don't think we're supposed to have air conditioners, but my roommate bought one. It has been a lifesaver. Honestly, because it got so hot in here. This is my microwave and my fridge. Nothing special that came in the room. So on top of here, these are my roommates plates. But I just keep paper plates and Ziploc bags up here. If I want to bring it snack to class or something, then next to the fridge and microwave, I just have this three tier car I got from Michael's on the top here. It's like my little breakfast. Look, I have a toaster and a keurig, and then just there's funny there for my teeth down here. Have some cups and dishwashing stuff if I need it. And then down here, keep gallon jugs of water. My tide pods, paper towels, silverware, all that kind of stuff. So it's kind of my little kitchen in, um, three shelves right here. I have this fooling mirror pretty self explanatory. This is my closet. I hang my towels on those two broad things, and actually, my claws is pretty big. So this in my closet, it's a little bit messy. but up on this hook, I hang my robes down there, have my shower, caddy. And then in these little shoe boxes, I have all my shoes. I use my laundry basket as a hamper as well. There's another book bag over there and on this side. I just have clothes hanging up more shoes and I have some dishes up there. Have empty boxes, bags from when I moved in. Thank you guys. So much for watching. I hope you enjoy. I know this video husband so requested. So I hope you guys like that. Don't forget.

But otherwise that's pretty much it. Thank you so much for watching. I hope you enjoy it and I'll see you next So this is Paula Commons, another huge common area for students to go study and get food. So let's go take a look inside here. So Pollock has something that none of the other common has. They have Dan stand revolution for anyone to play for free. There's usually someone going crazy over here, but I get so early. Nobody's playing right now, but it's really fun, really fun to go with. Your friends, just like mess around, have a great time together. So this is another convenience store in Polic. You can order food made toe order or you can get any snacks you want, but also pretty big. And there's a lot of options. One of my favorite things is the frill milkshakes because they're just so amazing and they have all the flavors. Um, you can choose your thickness, and it's just such a tasty snack or dessert. They also have the huge frozen section above anything you could really want to eat and a refrigerator section as well. So also in the Commons is something called rez calm, which is where you can go to take your technology issues not open right now, but they're actually really helpful free service from hence state. I've gone there before to fix my laptop, then. Also over here is the Commons desk, where you pick up mail, any questions about housing. Everyone's really friendly and super nice and helpful as well of a huge study room where you can come hang out with friends, play games like Ping Pong or billiards, or even just watch TV, which is a really nice, cozy feeling in here, Mom that I know a lot of people would love to take advantage of. boy it is, Sonny. Is this too much? That's better. Hey, guys, it's Jonah, and it is Sunday morning. I just thought of this video idea, so I'm not really sure how it's gonna go, because I haven't exactly planned it out yet, But I want to start it like immediately. So I get a lot of questions on how I study and prepare for exams. So I thought I would do kind of like a study with me throughout this video. I'm just gonna be telling you and, like, bring you along with me when I'm studying, Kind of telling you different tips and tricks that help. May I thought the video could be helpful for those of you are struggling to find out how to study. I definitely struggled my first semester, but I think I'm finally kind of getting into the groove of things and figuring out what works best for me. So I have a biology exam on Thursday. Like I said, today's Sunday. So that's gonna be the main thing I'm studying. For those of you who have never worked my videos before, my name is Jonah. I go to Penn State University and I'm a freshman, A bio behavioral health major. But I am on a pre med track, so I'm taking all pre med classes. Just is a little background for you guys. If you were wondering, I'm just gonna go and get ready for my day. And then I'm gonna start studying So I will catch up with you guys once I start studying. So everybody welcome my favorite study location. My favorite way to study in general is to teach information for biology. Really? Just study best by explaining things to others. But obviously, nobody wants to hear about, like, 10 chapters of biology. What I do usually is I come to a classroom today. I'm in Willard. You get good at Penn State. I love going to Willard. But in general, I like to just find a room with the white board and a lot of time. All kind of like teach information and I'll just do diagrams on the white board. Waiting on the white board kind of helps me lay out all of the information the best that ISS my favorite way to study for biology. When it's something like chemistry, I prefer to just do practice over and over and over again in it needs lots of like so, Yeah, I'm just going to get started with studying for that. But I'm gonna tell you guys a few essentials for when I'm going somewhere else. A lot of times I feel like I could do work in my room like busywork and homework and stuff, but I can't really focus and study in my room. Super Well, I definitely can, but not the best environment for me. A lot of times obviously have to go different places like the library or a classroom or something. So here is everything that you need to have when you're going to study somewhere a snack, you're gonna get hungry, Your planner, You have to know what you have to do. And then obviously, like all your school supplies, like if you're thinking about bringing something you like and I'm not sure I need this or not bring it. You'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it. So definitely bring anything that you could possibly need. School wise notebook wide and I'm do water bottle, but I could fill this up, but bring a drink, you're gonna get thirsty. X. I have dry erase markers because a lot of times the dry erase markers in these classrooms suck. So I have my house and a portable charger because I'm addicted to my phone. So those are pretty much all of my studying essentials that I bring. Wherever I go, I'm just gonna get started and start studying a so really quickly. I just like to tell you some things that I've done before. I start like, intensely studying. Obviously, each chapter is broken down into specific categories, so I don't really like to look at chapters. I kind of liked look at category because I feel like they just all connect. One way that I do that is kind of summarizing everything into their specific categories. The thing that's most important is how I organize this Information's might not work for everybody, but I really like color coding. Things helps me like visualize it better during the actual test. I could kind of, you know, visualize in my head where something specific ISS and try to remember. So here's an example of like a color coded chapter that I've gone through. Specific category is a different color. So in this portion of the chapter, you could see that they're pretty small categories and they don't have a ton of information, But they can get as big as this one where I had to dedicate a whole page to that color. So that kind of helps me to study because I break it down by category. So this first category here is Protess, so focused on studying just the orange portion right now. And then I started that way I find it easier to break it down to next, the purple section or the brown section or the green section or the red second, any section I want. I mean, I do try to kind of go in order, but obviously, if I only have 30 minutes to try to memorize something like, I'm not gonna try to memorize this whole thing, I would probably go for a smaller category. They go back to my room will probably do this, but a lot of times will take them together, so be more like a little bit more like a study guide. But while I'm trying to memorize information, just gonna keep them all separate. This is something that I started doing this semester and I have found it. So So So try to break your studying down into categories and just focus on one thing at a time. Here's an example of how I go about memorizing information while talking out loud. I kind of had it. Haven't set up almost like a power point is. So you see this point I have here it is what? Our protest. So then I kind of at that point and I'm like, Okay, I talk out loud what protests are, and I have a point that's is that three domain system. So I talk out loud and say, with the three domain system is so that way, I'm actually reciting the information instead of just reading it over and over again the 1st 2 times, I have to, like, recite the information by, like, reading out of my notes and then, after, like, 345 times, I can actually recite it without directly reading it. And that's kind of time. We're calling it from my memory. So I keep those points up and I work my way down and just keep making points as I go to memorize different information. And then after a certain amount of time or after I memorized a certain thing, I start from the beginning again and I go through all the informations. That way I could number one, make connections and number to make sure I'm not forgetting the information that I originally memorizing. This is a super, super great way to study reading the same thing over and over and over again, like you're not doing anything doing flash cards over and over and over again. You're not doing anything. You're not making any connections. You're not recalling the information from your long term memory. You're kind of visually memorizing. It is different than actually storing it in your long term memory. So I wanted to tell you another little tip that I use when I'm studying, I get super distracted with my phone. I think we all can say that we are very destructive ira bones. I could be really hurtful when you're studying. Hate to turn my phone completely off because if my mom calls me and I don't answer honestly, she'll think I got kidnapped. So there's the first thing. Second thing is like I just I don't like to have my phone off because I'm scared there's gonna be an emergency or something. I don't know. That stresses me out a way that I kind of keep my phone on. But yet don't use it. I set a timer for 25 minutes at 25 minutes. I don't touch anything. I don't go through my backpack and look for something I don't like. Open up my snack and eat it. I just make sure I don't look at my phone. I just make sure that I'm sitting and studying for 25 straight minutes with no distractions. I try not to go to the bathroom during that time and just study for 25 straight minutes. After that, I give myself a five minute break. So set my timer for five minutes again. That's what I could go to the bathroom, eat, take a drink, use my phone if I want to. I could do anything really that I want. This structure kind of gives me the ability to focus during a set amount of time, but yet keep taking breaks. So let's say you're planning to study for three hours straight. Let's be honest. You just you're going to get distracted by your phone. So if you just at certain periods of time where you're allowed to go on your phone and certain ones where you can't that are short periods of time instead of like three hours at a time, I don't know. I mean, if you could do that good for you, but I definitely can't stick to that. So yeah, I definitely think that's a very good tip for you guys. If you struggle with getting instructed by your phone. So here is kind of like the aftermath of me studying different topics. So here on the board are all things that are directly connected to each other. I don't know if you guys know anything about biology, but here I have, like, literally, it's all the different kingdoms of you. Carried. Split also almost tested my toe, sis. But I don't have my toast is on any of these boards because I'm trying to study one thing at a time. My toast is it does really to these things generally, I guess. But that's not You're not really making connections between the kingdoms and my toast. So that's why I studied all that at one time. I'm finishing up now. I'm taking a break. The guy break, we're actually leave. And I don't know if I'm to go to Duncan or my room, but I'm just gonna leave this space for a little bit about two hours of studying. So I feel like that's a good chunk of time for me that I like. I got a lot of information in that two hours and it's definitely time for like, an actual break. That's not just five minutes. I'm gonna finish up here and I will talk to us and a little bit. We're on day two for studying for biology. Yesterday you guys saw me like trying to memorize, like, a lot of information at one time. So right now, what I'm going to Dio is kind of go over that information one last time, just kind of skip over and repeat it one last time. And then I'm gonna try to write down everything from memory because copy your notes exactly. Word for word is actually really not beneficial. Thio. We literally had an entire psychology class the other day on good methods of studying in bad methods of studying. So I learned the other day that copying down your notes it word for word is not beneficial to you at all. That's why I'm going to try to recall it from memory and write it all down. But then once I do that, I will move on to my next category of memorizing. And I think I'm staying in my room today in my room. It's not gonna be here, so I'm able to, like, talk out loud when I study, and that's kind of a huge factor for me. I really like to talk out loud. A lot of people are different with this, but I definitely needed a super comfy while on studying. I have so pants are men's repents to exact because men so pants away come here than girls in this, like loose T shirt. Yeah, I'm gonna get started studying. You know, we talked about this a little yesterday, but I told you guys that I was going to, like, tape the little study guide made together. So is pretty cute cover because it's a fun part making study guides, okay. And I just kind of tape them all together in order. I just think this is a really cool way of keeping things together. I don't know. I like to be organized, and I feel like this kind of makes me organized. So I'd like one of these for Exam one on pretty much every class besides statistics. So now that I did what I told you guys that I was going to d'oh! Now it's kind of time to start the process all over again. So starting to take sections apart, one by one of like, a different chapter of what I'm learning is take the different sections apart one by one, and memorize them individually. Then tomorrow I am going to do more of what I did to that. Whatever I try to study and memorized today, I'm going to try to recall from memory tomorrow on my own. Before taking that psychology class where I learned how the study and how not to study. I would normally make flashcards for an exam like this because it's tons and tons of memorization. But I recently learned that flash cards are flashcards are completely and totally ineffective or long term memory storage. It is hurting me not to use flash cards right now, but hopefully this will get me the grade that I'm looking for on my exam. So I'll probably just come and update you guys tomorrow with where I'm at when I'm studying. So, guys, So it is to stay tonight and we still studying out here. But I am back in the classroom and the Willard building. And if you don't go to Penn State and that's kind of a relevant for you, you just need to know that I'm in a classroom. Now that I've spent two nights studying two different portions memorizing two different portions. What I'm gonna do is I have this nice white board here I am going to bright out all the things I remember in black. I am going to do a little Look, I'm going to reference a little bit of an outline. Just kind of like So you see how this part has title? So I'm gonna look at the nucleus and right. Just look at the word nucleus. Write down everything I know about the nucleus look at and no membrane system. Right now. Everything I know about the November in system and so want I think you guys get the point, So I'm going to write that down in a black marker. Each section will be written down in a black market, but then, after I finish pulling things from my memory, I am going to go through, see what I forgot. And whenever I forgot, I'm gonna be writing in a different colors. That way kind of stands out, and I know that that's what I'm missing. That's just pretty much home studying. No, this is only one section, but it's not that bad. Well, the black is the information that I pulled from my head. And then the blue is information that I should have pulled from my head that I either missed or in that case, I kind of said, transportation vesicles. And so the transport vesicles. So this gives me an idea of things I need to focus on. And I could clearly see that I know this section really well because I don't have that much blue there, and there's just a couple of details that I was missing. So I now know that this information from that I studied yesterday was stored into my long term memory. Just going to keep doing this with the other information, and then I have another whole section that I have to study. Yeah, I will check in with you guys tomorrow. You know how the studying is going. Hello, guys. I am looking really rough today, but it's fine. We had a snow day and I didn't get out of my bed until 8 p.m. So just rolling with this Look, today's one say, and my exam is tomorrow. Now that we have fully memorized all the information Mmm. Find the mostly a day before the test is the day that I like to go through all of the practice problems, if you have any. But most most people have, at least at the very least, homework. So go through your homework's answered those problems signal of the ones that you got wrong and see if there's a trend. If you are like lacking information in a certain area, while your practice us to all your homework's like go through them all, see what you know, see what you don't And if there's any subjects that you see that you're constantly getting questions wrong with, and maybe that's the section that you need to go over again. That's what I'm gonna do right now. I'm gonna start doing some practice problems, seeing where I need some work. I can't wait for this exam to be over because that means we're one exam closer to spring break. I'm gonna go work on some practice problems, and I will see you guys in a little bit. Just want you guys to know that I tried to feel me doing homework problems for you. But all of my homework problems are online. So, Dexter, it's gonna be extremely boring to sit here and look at my computer screen. Well, I do home our problems, so just so you know, I tried, but I just saved you from boredom. So, guys, it is the day after my exam. I think it went OK. I definitely knew all the information that was on it. The only issue I had was actually applying it. So I feel like the only thing I could have done better is maybe the more homework problems. But I felt like the homework problems weren't nearly as intense as the problems that were on the exam. I just thought it update. You guys on how I think I did. So I think I'm gonna call this like a study with me. I don't know how I study something like that. So I hope you guys enjoyed getting a look at how I study for my exams. A lot of you guys ask how I study in college. Obviously, I'm still a freshman and I'm still trying to figure out the best way to study in college. But I think this method has been like one of the ones that have worked best for me so far. Especially just like going to the costume, talking out loud, writing things down on the board. That's how I retain information the best. Every person's different. Every person's going to retain information differently. Able might work for me. It might not work for you if you guys enjoy this little video where I had some study tips and should you guys how I studied it and, like, took you as along with me while I studied for my biology exam. Let me know because I have tons of exams, so I could probably do this video 1,000,000,000 onetime side of 1,000,000,000 and one exams. You guys in which watching I hope you enjoyed. Don't forget to subscribe down below. If you haven't already, I go to Penn State University. So I make tons of videos about my life here. And I would love for us if only along on this journey. So definitely subscribe down below. If you want to keep updated with my life otherwise think you have so much watching. I hope you enjoy it. And I will see next time my feet on the ground with her head in Good morning, everybody. I am to retired and exhausted. I'm gonna go brush my teeth and wash my face so I'll cut you guys in a minute. It will be more energetic. Quit? Probably not, because it's 8 36 in the morning. And honestly, I'm kind of running late again. Whatever. Happy Monday, everybody. So today is Monday. Like Like I just said the last week in the life that I felt it was a little abnormal. That one was a little wacky. I was hoping that this week would be more normal and I could actually show you a normal weekend. My life looks like if you guys haven't been to my channel before. My name is Jonah. I'm a freshman at Penn State University, and I make tons of videos about my life here, a college. So if you're interested, subscribe. If you're not, then don't. Sorry if I'm running around while I'm talking to you guys. I am running late. So typical. So if you guys did watch my last week when I think it might be slightly repetitive, but I don't know, you seem to really like it. So I thought I would make another one. So right now I have a nine. AM today. I am in 11. AM back to back. Some people say that sucks, but that's my favorite kind of schedule. So, yeah, I'm gonna head to that any minute now. Yeah, I'm really running late, so I'm gonna go and I'm gonna go to my three classes. I will see you guys after. Hello, guys. So I went to my three classes today, so I just ate some pizza that I had in my bridge. I really lived a healthy college. Like then I just started doing a little bit of work for biology. Pretty much we have, like, lessons online, and I kind of like to summarize them and make them into notes, because the notes that she gives us in class are literally the worst things in the world. So that's kind of what I depend on for everything in biology. I'm going thio quickly finish like the one lesson that I'm on. And then after I'm done with that, I'm going to work out and shower and actually a biology class later today it's currently 1 30 I don't have bio until or so I have a little bit of time, so I'm just gonna do Ah, workout. I said this my last video. A new war go plan from serious day. I actually missed last week because if you watch my lost video like I was so stressed out last week, I didn't really have any time to work out. But I have a bad habit if I don't work out for a week like, I'll make that trend and I, like, will stop working altogether. So starting back off this week right where I left off, It's okay to have, like, break weeks. I definitely needed it. I'm gonna go do my workout now. So you are all aware always break out into a rash when I'm warm. So between work out taking a hot shower, I am broken out in hives. But just pretend to ignore them. I just wanted to let you guys know that since this winter, and it's obviously, like, very cold. I have been looking like a straight ghost because I obviously do have a tan. So But I'm really scared of Self Tanner because I feel like I would definitely messing out. So I started using this Jergens natural glow, which is a gradual self tanner. So you use it like every day, just like a normal lotion. And then you gradually get Tanner instead of, like, hell chain or being a one and done deal, which, you know, some of you might find them or annoying. I'm not sure. So I've been using this. So I just got out of the shower. I'm gonna put this on, and, yeah, family. So I just got back from biology class and quite honestly, my roommates not here until, like, 10 o'clock to make. She has class really late. Probably gonna sit like all right there and with no pants on and just grind out work because that's just what we're gonna do, given the fact that that is extremely boring. I will see you guys in the morning. I just want to say that I can never film a normal week in my life. It's just not gonna happen. So good morning, guys. It is Tuesday morning, and normally I haven't am lab today, but there is so much snow outside. I am so happy. So just like the last week in my life, classes got canceled today and I'm just super happy. So yeah, I don't really know I'm gonna do today. I'm not sure what my plans are. I would love to do a photo shoot in the snow. Besides, I'm probably just gonna get a lot of work done. So I'm not sure if the library's closed or if the gym's closed. Yeah, I will keep you guys updated because I am just a static that we don't have class. So, guys, it's actually like sleeping outside and, you know, whenever they cancel class slash school, I'm always like, Oh, my God, that means go out and do things And, like, wait, they cancelled school because it's actually like really should be outside me and my friend Christina, we're going to go on a photo shoot and we still might, but it's likes leading right now's not the best weather to do a photo shoot in. But I'm thinking of maybe filming a video because my roommate she went to work, and I kind of have time to today, since they don't have a super lot to do today. Not really sure. I just I just don't really know. I'm just very confused. I really didn't think classes were gonna get canceled today, So I am very much thrown off. I probably shouldn't be this thrown off, but a little update for you all. I just did my makeup and the hair and and after us and I just filmed a video. I just hit my head off from my bed. I hope you can see that red mark. But today's my friend Kristina's birthday. So I'm actually gonna go meet her for lunch, and we're gonna go on a little, many photo shoot. We're gonna try to if the weather holds up. But I'm not really sure how it's gonna go. In case you guys were wondering, I'm wearing this light washing jacket from for over 21 layered on top of this like, kind of cropped, like, barely cropped. But he just wearing high waist of leggings. And I'm wearing Tim's with socks, like coming out of them because it's snowing and I need, like, decent shoes. So me and Christina just went to lunch and we grabbed a couple pictures. If you want to see any of them, then follow me on my instagram because that's where you're going to see him. Yeah, right now, I'm just going to warm up. I kind of want to go back outside and feeling like some b roll. I don't know. I've been waiting for the campus. Look a little prettier to do that, but it's just really cold outside, so I'm not really sure yet. Guys, welcome back to my channel. Hey, how you doing? I shall let from Jeffrey Starr. Shit. Okay, um, have you guys had a great again? We're here in a psych class, and we did not do as well on the exam, is we hope, Because that's just a thing that John and I do with every single class ever. We're like, Oh, yeah. We're gonna get 100 this time. We get, like, 40. More like, Oh, shit. All right. Bye. So, guys, Sorry. Haven't really talked to you today. He was just like, a crazy morning because, you know, I'm always running late for class, like, pretty much every day. About 12. Right now, I'm gonna eat lunch, and then I actually volunteer, so I'm gonna be volunteering from 1 30 to 3 o'clock. People say that they want me to show what you as well and let me show you why I don't talk about what I eat. I am literally eating leftover pizza, and I've been having leftover pizza for, like, three days now. Um, I eat super unhealthy you. So if you guys honestly, like, let me know if you guys want to see what I eat, I just need so one healthy that I figure that nobody really wants to see it because I literally live off of Roman pizza and pasta. So So just so you guys were updated. Last time I talked to you, I just ate lunch. And now I'm talking to you right after I ate dinner. I just went to the comments for dinner and had, like, pasta and pizza because, like I said, I literally actually live off of pasta and pizza like that's really all I so pretty much after that, I went to volunteer, came back, and I'm trying to be right now whether or not I'm gonna work out, I should work out. If I d'oh, I'm gonna win a little bit because I hate working out right after i e. It's like six o'clock right now. I'm thinking maybe I'll just wait. We do a quick out for the day. Let me show you guys what I were volunteering because this is the only day that address. So for volunteering, they kind of we don't have to dress like business. See, like I thought we did at first. But we really don't. But we have to dress still like nice. I just have this long sleeve like mustard colored sure on. And that's just from forever. 21 that over top of it. I just have this kind of oversized sweater. It's under the oversized. Just has that, like Big Drew Penis to it. I don't know how to explain it. I don't know what it's called, and this is just black, obviously. And then I have genes on. Then, with this album, I just wear. These little beauties are also from Forever 21. I actually think these pants are. When I was going to class, I was actually wearing Tim's and like, longer socks because there was lots know here when I was walking to class. So you guys know in an hour if I'm going to work out or not. So I decided to go to the gym because I'm not doing hit workout today. It's still in the same workout plan that I talked about but like more of a toning thing. So I feel like it's not, like, quite as tiring time. I tried for myself working out. I just look horrendous. And I paid it so I could try to fool me, work out. But I don't really want to because I look weird because I just got back from the gym broken out in the hives. As usual, though, I'm just gonna shower. And then I'm just gonna work on homework until I go to bed, so I will see you guys in the morning. Good morning, everybody. It is Thursday morning. Happy Valentine's Day, by the way. So I only have one class today, and that's not until 12. It's from 12 to 1 30 Right now, it's currently like 9 30 Yeah, it's 9 30 actually tickets for the chain smokers and five seconds of summer. Um, they go on sale at 10. So actually, within goodbye, we get them for really inexpensive because we're getting student tickets. I'm just waiting for that to go up. I still have a little while, though. In the meantime, we'll probably actually, like, get ready for my day. Yeah, I don't have that much going on today. After you a research study thing later. I'll explain that when I get to it. And then I'm also going to study with my friend Lizzie tonight. But I think that I am so excited. I got tickets for the chain smokers in five seconds of summer. I'm so like, literally not even until September. And I don't listen to that much. I definitely isn't It They're older films. I don't no family, newer zones or I haven't listened to them And still, like, really excited. I haven't been to a concert in a while. I feel like like I said, I don't know, like, 1/2 hour ago. I'm actually gonna get ready for me day some still Benjamins. So I just got back from class. Let me explain to you a little bit what this research thing is that I have to D'oh. It's kind of not gonna make sense, but let me do brief explanation for my psychology class. You have to get six credits of research pretty much what it means by that. Like you need to participate. You need to be a participant in research for pretty much. It's six credits pretty much equal six hours. I did a lot of online surveys that didn't take an hour. So I have, like, four credits of not actually physically being in the lab and being tested just surveys. That's how they get people like participate in there, so raised by making it required for classes like psychology. So obviously, they're all like psychology studies. So yeah, I have I took a survey and I qualified first study. So I have to go in today for one hour. No, I have that. I think, is that for 33 positive for 30 and then after that, I'm going to. It's like a little study session. I'm in a club called Sunny State here up on stage, and it's pretty much like a random acts of kindness club. But we have a little It's like a social, but it's not in me meeting. So we're all just getting together and doing home where I think that's a security. Maybe I don't know. I'm going to eat something. You know what? Yet I should probably work out today. You don't know. Oh, wait. I wash my serious rate. It won't work out that way tomorrow. Right here late last night. So it's still very fresh. And I don't like watching it again today. So actually, I'm not gonna work out to say that we're cut for tomorrow. Anyone else have a hard time coordinating their workout schedule with their hair watching schedule? Because I feel like that's such huge struggle for me. I just got some studying done, and I think now I'm gonna go to the research thing. And I actually have a meeting at six. Like I said before. So if you guys don't know this my friend, like you've seen her before even in this loan. But I have a fear of trying and food. And for Valentine's Day, I got Lizzie the champagne Gummy bears really awful. So just give it a is your true beauty group. Wow, I can't do it. You just physically there. What is it? Nothing. Because all like to out of town. Emphasis on attempting. Thanks. It's been a while since you've been screaming the whole time you're me. Hi, It's folks. I'm looking egg right now, but it's fine Okay, So when you say I love you Good morning, guys. It is Friday. I am not in a very good morning mood. And no, some mornings I wake up happy some I don't. I am not happy this morning. I probably just have to wake up. So given our have chemistry at night, I don't have statistics today, So I don't have a 10 o'clock class and I have psychology at 11 and then I'm done by 12. So I love my Fridays because I'm done by 12. 02 chemistry, comeback eats and breakfast and what not and then go to psych, and then that will be the end of my day. So, guys, I got done with class, and right now I'm just telling I put coconut oil in my like the bottoms of my hair because it's my hair has been really dry since it's been winter. And I'm about to work out. So I'm gonna work out with coconut oil in my hair because I'm in a shower after. So yeah, that being said, I'm gonna do work out pretty soon, Julia, soon as I'm done filming this cliff. But didn't you have just got in the mail because I'm so excited. I got a package from a company called My Friend Shop, and it's literally cutest thing. I'm so excited. They sell different kinds of necklaces somewhere like friendship next to the summer for family members. And they all have really kids saying, Don't move a confidence cube Super Huebel baggy that since love This sweet just actually sent me for the first time that I got was this necklace it like they look like a little two rings held together on the first cyclist there. It looks like they're a little too brings together, and it's the sisters for eternity. I heart, you know, I think that's super cute. My sister is probably gonna like this. And then these three necklaces are kind of the same. So they all say on the bottom, Thank you for being my un biological sister. They have, like a couple different phones, which I think is cool. You love them, are the ones that look just like the sister ones, where they're like the two rings linked together. And then there's just one was like the single ring I would really love little dainty necklaces like those I think they're soak. You also love friendship necklaces, especially for friends that, like, don't live very close to me. Like my friend Francesco. She's definitely getting one of these. I missed her so much, so I would definitely say per one. Actually, my friendship on these birthday's coming up. She probably got this by the time I posted. And if not Shivani. I guess you know what you're getting for your birthday. But, um, I think I'm gonna put one of these in her birthday gift for her too. I just think It's so cute. I love them. How cute is that? I think that's adorable. So thank you so much to my friend shop for sending you these other instagram linked down below. If you guys want to check them out. Yeah, Like I said, I'm just gonna work out. Then I'm gonna shower, and that's pretty much gonna be the end of my day. So I think I'm gonna end this week in my life. Thank you guys. So much for watching. I hope you enjoy different. It's subscribe down below, if you haven't already. I make tons of videos about my life. You're at college, so if you're interested in learning more about that than definitely subscribe down below. Also, let me know what you guys wants you down below. Like if there's anything specific that you guys want me to fill. Yeah, that's pretty much all I got. So thank you so much for watching. I hope you enjoy it. And I will see you next time. My feet on the ground with her head Hey, guys, it's Joan and say, I'm going to be telling you my high school stats, that independent state, I guess all other colleges I apply to too. But I got your feet on the ground, good head, and you guys didn't know I woulda Penn State University. I was admitted as a biomedical engineering student. I ended up switching majors, which was my last video. If you want to go hear anything about that. So I know you guys are probably seniors in high school and Yuri, they're finishing up. Your college applications in the middle are starting wherever you are in your application process. You're probably just really interest to get acceptance letter from wherever you're flying to. So hopefully I'll be helpful either when you feel better insurance you more. But I didn't even know. I know a lot of people like to watch these videos while they're waiting for their acceptance letters. I feel like so many different kinds of people fly, and there's so many different factors that they look for. So I think it's really helpful together a bunch of information from a bunch of different people to see what exactly they look for And if there's a trend or anything like that, every time you guys, my G p A s, A T and the cards and activities I was involved in in high school, so hopefully this will open. Got So it's just concerning Penn State is the school I go to now. But I also applied to the University of Scranton, Elizabethtown College and Widener University. I know I feel like they're very like popular school status, but in case you were also find any of those schools that might help with that as well, because I ended up getting into all of them. So yeah, I am definitely another four point out student. I was not four point of student high school and like, I feel like I'm a very pretty average student. So I feel like the scores could be interpreted differently, depending on where you are. Some people look at me and be watched grow stupid looking. You'd be like, Wow, she's really smart. Some people could be like, Oh, she's really average, like I don't know depends on where you are. So please do not judge me for anything like that. I have I interest here to help you out don't hurt feelings such as the new version of the essay tea. So I know the score is different for the new one. In the old one, I took the new one for starting at six. He was in the fall of my junior year, and I ended up getting a 5 80 in both math and reading and that total up to 11 60. Outside of the essay portion of that, I got a 20 out of 24 which I was pretty proud of. But I'm also pretty sure that no, this was applied to your part of the outside. So the second time I did, my city was the spring of my junior year, and I actually stayed the same in reading, so I got a 5 80 But then I got a 6 10 and Maps, so that ended up being in 11 90. I didn't have to super score anything. My reading scores stayed the same, and my math went up, so I ended up applying to schools with 11. 90 s, my city. That's pretty happy with that score. I don't think I could have gotten much higher if I took it again. So I was pretty happy with it. I go to a really small school, not special my school kill miss school, but we don't have very We were not known for Academic said it was not a very good school. I wasn't. We didn't have any AP courses. We had honors courses. They're barely even different from the normal courses. So I only knew one or two people in my class that we're taking the a C T. So I just didn't take it because the school's required it. So yeah, that was it. I said to you scores and I'm gonna get into my g p A. And the cops took I know opportunities for Ap credits. In high school, I had honors classes, which was pretty much you were either in honors classes or you work. So when you are 1/3 grade, they determined, like by your grades, whether or not you put in honors classes. So, yeah, I was in all underst losses, but at the end of the year, they only told me my on waiter GPS, so I don't really have a way to g p A. For you guys. You could probably trying to figure it out. I'm gonna tell you, I actually applied to schools with because I only applied to schools in my own way to do so. My lady, g p a. Ended up being a three 175 because that was pretty good. But I think the most important thing about GP when you're applying to schools is improvement. I think my G p 1/9 grade was like a 3.3 or 3.4, But then I ended up improving over the years, obviously lifted my g p a up. And I think of colleges See that if you didn't have the strongest U P. A and your freshman or sophomore year, but you really were trying to bring that up your junior and senior year. I definitely think that shows something about you and your character that you're growing into student and you're learning as you go. So if you have a freshman g p a. That subsets pulling you down like don't worry about it. As long as you're trying to improve yourself in every thing, that's all you need to try to do. You could do your best. You could do. So I guess there's nothing really more to say about my g p a or my S A. T s. Because I guess it is what it is to get into the activities that participated. I stayed in the lot. I'm not a lot. So just bear with it. Student council for two years, Matt inside stuff for four years and within math and Science Club. I did a lot of science competitions. I didn't mention that one of my f say things and the truck alone for four years, which I know you guys probably don't know. That is because it's pretty rare, I think. But track love is pretty much where you raised trout from on their little eggs and then you at the end of the year, you go really stunned and it's really fun. I was vice president of my class on I was elected that sophomore year. So when you're elected in South Korea, you automatically get it for the rest of the years and what she liked resigned or something. So I feel like that was a big focal point of my I was elected in this thing called peer mediation myself for you as well, which teachers take you If you're like, have a good character and they know you and your they think you're a good person, it's pretty much an anti bullying program. So I was selected for that software year, so I did sophomore, junior and senior year. I did cross country for two years. I did soccer for four years, and I was captain of the soccer team, my junior and senior year, and I did skate Club for four years. Most importantly, you're not involved in a lot of activities. Try to take leadership rolls, and I know I heard that lot. Like all that's a stupid leadership roles. Whenever I don't know, it looks so that if your earlier also I'd like to throw this in there, this has something to do with applications. But I did go to a career for a lot of the recruiters asked me, Do you have any leadership experience? So it doesn't even just help? Her college application helps going on. So yeah, that's pretty much my college application, said no. On Pence's application, the personal same is optional. But if you're in the lower to mid range in their average that they have online, then definitely do the personal statement that could really show your character that could really blown away. I personally was kind of the middles right in the middle for Penn State Africans. So once again, I was pretty much an average student to get in. But I really think that my personal statement probably did play a big part. So I hope this video isn't all over the place. Those were pretty much the steps that I played all colleges with, and I got in. Like I said, I depend State University, the University of Scranton, Listen, Town College and Widener University. So you guys have any questions? Definitely. Leave them down. The law will be happy to answer them. If I get a whole bunch of questions, I will definitely make a video about it. So if you guys have a bunch of questions, just leave them down there. I will enter them for you. Whether it's about pence a or the application process or high school or anything, just leave them alone. Thank you so much for watching. I hope you enjoyed. I hope this helps you Good luck in your application process. if you're going through that right now, I really hope you get in. Because if you D'oh, then you could come. We could be friends. Good creamery together. And so I think it's so much Roger. I hope you enjoy it. Will get into every college that you apply to that you want to be Oh, my feet on the ground with a head in a Hey, guys, it's Jonah. Today. I'm one to be filming a week of my life video. You guys don't know. I go to Penn State University and I'm a freshman and sound pretty much going to be taking you guys along with me throughout the weeks. That way you could see what a normal week is like for me. So today's Monday, the class I'm supposed have today are e con cam and Cal. I don't go to Couch because I don't learn anything in that class. That's a whole nother story. Yeah, I don't have a couple other little things going on today, but I get you as we'll see when we get there. It's about quarter to 10. My first class starts at 10 10. And if you're wondering, I never, ever look nice for class. So this is about as good as you're gonna get me. I'll check up with you guys. Four. Wait, so I just kind of coughs. And except for a little bit in the library, I have to go to an advising appointment right now because I'm thinking about such a major. I'll talk more about that. You there later, in a different video when I figure it out. Okay, I was ready to go. Okay. Heading for small. So shallow to Shivani because I just stole her room will choose that class and there's nobody in here. It's just me. I'm actually in a facilitated study group for chemistry A which is all the way on the other side of campus. And my friend lives on the side of campus, and I have about an hour, and I wanted to eat, So I just went over to her comments and I grabbed Burger. I'm going to my study group at five. And it's about 3 30 right now, so I have a little bit just show, and that's what I'm saying here to occupy my time. My friends went to class, so they just let me sit in here until I wait. So I just got a cheeseburger because we live that healthy college. Really, you know, really see things such as shoes, burgers. Now I'm gonna watch prison at me. Hello, guys. It is Tuesday morning. I didn't log the rest of last night because I feel like that a lot of these nights are going to be repeated things so I feel like it wasn't a big deal if I got everything from yesterday because I'm going to be doing the same thing on other days. So I didn't want this week in my life to be too repetitive. Like I said, today is Tuesday and the only class I have today is a four hour lab, which really sucks. It's from 1 30 to 5 30 I have homework doing there and a quiz, and I haven't started to work on either of those yet. So pretty much up until 1 30 it's about 11 Now. I am going to the doing my work for this class. I also don't want to do too many montages and me just doing work. So I'm gonna try to keep those to a minimum because they definitely got a couple yesterday. I'll keep you guys updated. So after my four hour long lab, I grab something to eat, and then I went to the gym, and now here I am, all sweaty after the gym, so I'm very sorry for my hair sits right now, but on the rough side. But you know, I really don't care, actually, but I haven't economy exam tomorrow. So I'm just going to study and go to bed so I will update you guys in the morning. It is really windy. This clip might feel a little loud, but today's once said the difference in today than Monday because I have an extra class on one said It's called the first year seminar off Freshman are required to take it. You take the seminar that corresponds here, major or something that's very similar to your major. So it's a really easy class. It's just once a week, like said. And I did actually go to calculus today because my friend convinced me todo I'm on my way to that right now. I have it until 2 15 After that, I'm done. E. I actually have a couch exam on Monday, and there are these things at my school. Call it lying tutors. I don't know if you has got a that state, you know they are, but they have free exam review sessions and their four hours long. I'm going to the calculus one today, so that is at six and says it could last from 3 to 4 hours. I'll be there all night, pretty much. So you guys, I won't be seeing much of me Kind of like yesterday when I have for class, I give log in there. So that's my tire. Day after this, I'm gonna eat and maybe try to go to the gym. We'll see the tutors is across campus, so see how much time I have, but yeah, that's pretty much my life right now. I had come home work that was due at six o'clock today because you submitted online. But I actually did my camera work during Kim class instead of listening. So I just submitted that about an hour ago. He also just tripped up the stairs. So yeah, I will probably up to you guys after my upward angle, but I really just want, like, I'm super tired and I'm super hungry. I think I'm in the oatmeal now. Go to the gym. Probably shower after that. Then by then, maybe it'll be time for either the dining common teared open, or I'll just go thio difference Dining comments. But I'm so tired. I don't know how I'm gonna sit through this four hour tutoring session today. I am so so. I also didn't have any teeth today. Maybe I'm, like, so tired to have any caffeine. I'm gonna go make thine oatmeal, so I'll talk to you guys later. Okay? So I'm gonna go head to the gym now and I'm gonna work out. It's gonna be a relatively short work out, probably 30 or 45 minutes, because I really don't have that much time to work out. So I want only my dorm by five, and it's quarter after three right now, and I just have a snack. But since the tutoring session is four hours, I'm gonna need to eat dinner, short workout, maybe a shower, probably shower, hopefully of time shower, and then I'm gonna go and eat and all that. I'm actually missing a meeting today to go to a tutoring session. I know that's a week of my life, but normally, yes, today I'm going to to during session. But a lot of times I'll have a club meeting or something like that so that I would let you guys know that there's always something different going on, and I usually I have something at night, whether it's a meeting or tutoring, probably about three times a week but yeah, if you guys want to see a video about, like, the clubs that I'm involved in, all that stuff and let me know and I will give you more details into it. So I just got back from the gym. Now I'm in a shower. I believe my 4 30 some way I can get dinner and then go to the tutors. So this is probably the last time talking you got today and I will see you guys in the morning and it's currently 10. 48. And this is why I love Thursday. I just woke up and I don't really know what I'm gonna d'oh. So I can't really tell you anything, But I just wanted to let you know that I got to sleep in today and it's the best feeling ever because I was so tired. I feel like this week in my life may have been filmed in the same spot every single day. And I'm really sorry about that. If that's the case, because I don't really remember. But today is Thursday. Thursday is my favorite day of the week, and I will tell you I have one class today and it's from 3 34 30 So does not require me to get up early. It is not a four hour long class. So by Thursday is a really good especially this Thursday, because I feel like all of my work that was due was doing beginning in the week rather than the end, usually in the mornings on Thursdays. A lot of times I have to wake up not early, but probably by 10 o'clock just to get up and, like, do homework until I have to go to class. But today, I didn't have to do that. I do have homework to do after class, though, because I have a take home math quiz that's due tomorrow. And also homework, muck, math, homework. That's due tomorrow. And that's not too bad. Like I didn't have to get up early to do it right now, I'm gonna head to the gym after I do that, Then I'm going thio comeback and shower. Then after that, you know how I went to advise me advising appointment on Is it Monday? Maybe. Yeah, I think Monday she pretty much just referred me to a different adviser. So I have that appointment today and hopefully I can figure something out because it's kind of been stressing me out. So let's go to the gym here being one thinks you look like a little bit. But I'm so hungry and I just took a shower. So I would like to comment and grab something to eat and get You guys were wondering. I only get a ham and she only get him. And she is on my panini because I'm a super picky eater, and I don't like anything fun. So I'm gonna go eat this and then go to my advising appointment. Okay, guys. So I just got back to my room after class. I went to my advising appointment, too, which for the second time, they directed me to another adviser so that I'm really stressed out over this switching major thing or whatever, and I just kind of wanted to get it figured out when I'm the type of person that we were gonna go until I get figured out. So the fact that I have to sit and wait until it gets all sorted out kind of sucks right now. Actually, I don't know why. Mid quiz. I decided that I would blow, but I'm actually taking a quiz online right now for chemistry. It's due by midnight 4 30 I have a meeting at six for the Society of Women Engineers, and Grey's Anatomy starts night the new season, and it starts at eight o'clock. I'm going to like this watch party thing and I don't know anybody there. It's kind of weird that I don't know anybody there but hear me out for a second. So I know a lot of colleges have this, but Penn State has, like a class of 2022 Facebook group. So somebody posts down there one day. Oh, put your Snapchat sound below you want? I have Ah, Grey's Anatomy watch party. Your watch Grey's Anatomy together When it first comes out or something like that. I actually, like put my staff chatted and I'm going to watch Grey's Anatomy with a bunch of strangers, which should be fun. But I'm probably not gonna blogging because I don't know anybody there that would be super weird. So I just did my quiz and a bunch of math homework, and now I'm going to go to my meeting. That's from 6 to 7. And then after that, I'm going to agrees. An enemy language already you talked about before, so I'm not gonna talk about it any more. The last time I up did you? I was going to Grey's Anatomy went toe Grey's Anatomy and ship went with me. You guys have seen Giovanni in the last wall going? If you haven't, then go watch it. She Montes May College b f. It is one I am. We just finished doing. Our Mac was figured out. This classroom is here in my commons and there is a microphone, and the teachers at Penn State was talking like your phone. So I took it upon myself to use the microphone for the night. And anyone who's in this classroom tomorrow will subscribe to, so yeah. Anyways, I'm gonna go back to my room just talking on the microphone. Watch Grey's Anatomy until I fall asleep. So I will see you guys in the morning And tomorrow's the last day of my week of my life. I will see you guys tomorrow morning. Today was kind of the same as Monday and Wednesday, which is why I didn't really film at all today because it's literally the same thing Monday, Wednesday, Fridays of the same, with the exception of the additional one class on Wednesday. So I just got out of Coke and I'm gonna go eat. We'll see later. I'll probably close the log a little later. I'm on my way to the gym, honestly, have a lot of homework to do today. So I think after I do that, I think I'm just gonna study and get homework done, but actually going home next week. So I want to try to do homework in advance, which sounds really nerdy, but I don't want to do anything when I'm home because it's the weekend before my birthday. But I'm technically going home for my birthday. I want a fully enjoying my birthday weekend. You know, I'm gonna go to the gym for a little bit in them, probably study. So I just went to Target and I got some groceries and then I came back to my dorm, and that's pretty much all that's gonna happen today. I have a math exam Monday, so I'm definitely gonna be studying for that tonight. I know it's a very anticlimactic Friday but I have to study because tomorrow's game day so there's gonna be no studying going on tomorrow.
