As so many of us are currently consumed by GCSE, A-level or Uni exam prep and I’ve been reading others’ posts on revision, I thought now might be a good time to show you my revision space at the minute. Since my last revision themed post I’ve updated my desk set-up a little. Shown mild OCD tendencies with my revision timetable, but I know all of us bloggers can be a little obsessive at times!
A girl can never have too many notebooks. Over the years I’ve accumulated sooo many (anybody else get stationary as presents as a kid?) but I always seem to at least half-fill them! I could almost guarantee you’d find a notebook filled with knitting notes and scribbles, lists of file numbers andthe odd mymaths quadratic equation in every room of my house. GettingPersonal.com kindly sent me a few pieces which have helped to brighten up my desk space, including this personalised ‘stuff I gotta get done‘ notebook. There’s nothing like writing on that clean first page. I need to get out more. 😉
Unless my tasks for the day are written down in list form, I often find myself dithering about trying to remember what exactly it was I needed to knuckle down with. It’s that ‘extreme faffing’ again…really I need to just get the bloody job done. Enter organised Lily with lists of everythingggg. 😀 Revision timetables are the thing of the moment, but I also like to keep separate lists for crafty projects and blog-related things included too. I suppose you’re either a list person or you’re not, and I definitely am. Despite being of the techie generation, I prefer pen and paper over on-screen memos any day. Told you I’m 16 going on 60!
Currently housing my can’t-revise-without Sharpies is this pencil sharpener desk tidy, also kindly sent by GettingPersonal. I’m easily amused by quirky pieces! This one made a welcome replacement for my rinsed out Nutella jar, anyway. 🙂
How’ve you been getting on exams-wise recently? I like reading any revision/exam style post whether it be GCSE or A-level or whatever; there are a lot of us in the same boat at the minute!
