How to get stuff done

made on 8-22-2021

Hey there! Today I will be giving you guys some tips and examples of how I get stuff done and not wait until the last second! Let’s get into it.

How I get my tasks done:

When I am assigned alot of homework or tasks, I have a few things I like to do. I have this planner, so I write down things I NEED to do right away and things that can wait a bit. Here are the main two ways I finish tasks:

1. I do one task at a time and after I finish it I normally take a 5-10 minute break and do something that is relaxing like reading, watching TV, etc. I then go back to do another task and take a small break, they cycle continues.

2. I do 2 or more tasks and then take a break, this continues until I am done with the work.

I find that they best method to finishing your work is to reward yourself with something when you are done, you don’t need to go out to the store and buy something. You can have small rewards like watching TV, eating a chocolate, relaxing after a long day, and more! I also find that you should take periodic breaks, if you are just finishing your tasks all the time it will make you hate finishing whatever you have to do even more.


If you have a habit of keeping things until the last moment (procrastinating) and you want to stop here are some things I suggest:

  • Motivate yourself, if you are feeling lazy and do not want to do anything, give yourself a pep talk, say that you can finish this work and that you will not keep it till the last second.
  • Reward yourself- If you have a problem with procrastinating and want to stop I suggest to motivate yourself with a reward. If you have a reward you will be more motivated to finish your work. As time goes on and on, and you get out of this habit, you can still reward yourself, but the reward does not have to be something that will break your wallet, it can be some TV time, or playing with your pets.

Tips on how to get work done:

  • Make a to-do list of everything you have to complete. You can divide it into two sections:
    • Need to do
    • Can wait
      • This helps you keep track of the things which are very important for you to do. Just because something is in your Can wait section doesn’t mean you can’t do it, it just means it doesn’t need much attention. I suggest that you put deadlines for the tasks. Don’t make the deadlines on the day it’s due, make the deadlines a few days before it needs to be finished so you don’t have to worry about it
  • Plan when you want to finish/do something
    • By this I mean that you should put some of your tasks on the day you want to do it and also put deadlines. I recommend doing this on a planner or calender
    • You can write in a calender, planner, or even a piece of paper of when you want to do things.
  • Here is an example:
As you can see some of the tasks are spread out. The can wait tasks are on different days and all of the tasks have deadlines
  • Take breaks!
    • If you have been working on something for so long you deserve a break!!

Update about Ina :(

Hello, I have some sad news! I was actually supposed to post this is in July, but I forgot to, let’s get into it.

Ina update:

If you didn’t know Ina (pronounced EE-na) is my bamboo plant, I talked about her in this post: Update- My new plant and school!

My plant Ina died, she died in July! She was cut off of another bamboo, so I didn’t think she would live very long, and she didn’t. Rest in piece Ina. I watered her everyday and put in rooting powder so that Ina would grow roots. Well, it’s ok, she was a great plant.

On a happier note, my school is going well and everything else is great!

That’s it for this post, sorry it was short, but that is all I had to talk about. Thank you for reading this post!! Also please comment any posts you would like me to write! Thank you again! Bye, I’ll catch you next time!

July Overview 2021

made on 8-1-2021

Hey there, it’s me again! Happy August! Summer break flew by so quickly, and I’m very sad to see it go, but I am kind of excited for school to start again! Anyways, today I am doing a July overview post, let’s get into it!

Blog overview:

This month I reached 50 followers! Thank you!!! I also got 21 new followers!!!! Currently ( august 1st) I have 58 followers, we are so close to 60! I did 14 posts. In my June Overview 2021 post, one of my goals was to have a more consistent posting schedule, but that didn’t really work out..

Summer break overview:

My summer break is almost over!!! I had fun though, this past week I read some Roald Dahl books (I have the book collection). I read: The giraffe and the pelly and me and Fantastic Mr. Fox, they are quite short, but I liked them, I love Roald Dahl books! Anyways I am going to be trying to make the most out of my last days of summer break for this year!

Goals and Announcement for August:

Announcement:

I will probably not be posting too much in August because my school starts again and I will not have as much time to post.

Goals:

  • Get at least 5 new followers
  • Write at least 5 posts
  • Have fun at school
  • Read at least 2 chapters of: A series of Unfortunate Events: The Grim Grotto
    • I have been wanting to finish this for a long time! I started it last year!!!!!! I have already watched the series on Netflix, but I also want to read the books, even though I will know the ending. Actually, funny story: I had started reading the 1st book a little before the Netflix series came out, then when the show came out I started watching it. My parents got us the book series because we loved the show. Skip forward a little. After finishing the 2nd season, my sister and I were eagerly waiting for the 3rd season to come out, but I realized I had all the books, so I started reading them. When the 3rd season came out I was on the 4th book. When we had finished watching the series, it had inspired me to start reading the books, so 7 books later, here I am on the 11th book, The Grim Grotto.
Here is the book

Sorry for all of that!

My really fun day!

Made on 7-13-2021

Hey there, today I am going to be telling you guys about my fun day! I will just be telling you guys the main things I did! Let’s get on with it!

I woke up at around 5:50

I went to the dentist for a checkup at 8:30- 10:00.

Surprisingly it took longer than I had expected, though my sister and I were both getting a checkup so it took a while. We both don’t have any cavities! Which means I still have my perfect record (my sister has had a few cavities in the past)

My family and I went to the science center in our state! 12:00- 3:00

This was really fun, I have not been to the science center since around 2018!! I think there is a science center in every state (in the U.S.A) so if you want to go, you can!

We got popsicles- 3:30-3:35

My dad and my sister didn’t want a popsicle, so my mom and I got one from a local popsicle store! I got a mango raspberry one, and my mom got a mango sunset one! They were both good!

Making a sock monkey- 4:30- 5:00

The rest of my day was just relaxing!
