My brother came with my nephew to our house today as it was my nephew’s birthday. We didn’t realise he was coming but had a quick impromptu birthday party whereupon my dad rushed out to get a cake… He forgot to buy candles… But never fear my mum has it covered!

Tutorial: how to make organized notes.

  1. Read the objectives of the lecture. If there aren’t any, flip through the lecture slides and make an outline. This puts into perspective what you need to be learning and what you should get out of this lecture.
  2. Skim the book to get familiar with how the information is divided compared to your outline or objectives. While doing this, you’ll figure out whether or not you need the extra details from the book. Sometimes the lecture is enough and you could keep the textbook just as a reference to things you don’t get.
  3. Write down the first objective and flip to the page in the book that has the information pertaining to that objective. Read the lecture slide then refer to the book for details.
  4. Combine your lecture notes with the textbook information. Do this by rewriting the information in your own words and try to be as concise as possible. 
  5. Keep doing this for every objective. Paste things if it helps.
  6. Make sure that you’re not just copying information. Use visual aids as much as possible. Put the information in a table, flowchart, diagram, etc.. (refer to this post to see how I make my flowcharts).
  7. When you’re done with all your objectives, go through the lecture and your notes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

General tips on how to keep them organized:

  • Be systemic. Making objective-oriented notes is one way to do that. 
  • Use two (or more colors). Color-coding information helps me remember it + it doesn’t look that bad.
  • Section your objectives according to the topic. Then make sure that when you’re writing out the information, it’s in a sequence that’s understandable.

Disclaimer: this is the way I’ve been making my notes since I started med school. By no means am I claiming it’s perfect or that everybody should follow it.

Hope this helps and as always, happy studying :)

SCHOOL IS STARTING. READ IIIIIT!

That’s Guyton and Hall!! (is it sad I could tell which textbook that was simply from a glimpse of the first picture… Probably.) But seriously, I love that textbook, it’s got mw through the first year of med school!

Omg I still remember James’s face at school when someone told him I’d written porn for your present he was likeimage

And then he just sighed and said “It’s always the quiet ones.”

The quiet ones will rule the world… Though I did have to stop my mum from reading it once… It was an impressive dive

Update, 26 March 2014
According to Forbes magazine, using the 2014 Billionaires List, an increased share of the world’s wealth means it now only takes the richest 67 individuals to equal the 3.5 billion poorest. The killer fact just got deadlier.

If you claim you voted against same-sex marriage due to your “Christian faith” I’m gonna shove a stick so far up your arse you’ll be using it to clean your teeth.  That is not Christianity, and I’d very much appreciate it if you stopped trying to use religion to hide the fact that you are just a shitty person.
