next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
How I Organise My School Folder
I’m a bit of an organisation freak sometimes and I love to have everything colour coded and looking neat so this is just a post to show you all how I organise my folder!
- Flash Cards: I keep these attached to the inside of my lever arch folder using a binder clip. They’re always helpful to carry around just in case there’s a particular vocab. word I want to note down or if I get a spare free period to do revision in.
- Hole Reinforcers: I have sheets and sheets of these on the inside of my folder so that I can put them on every single sheet of notes I make as I make them.
- Sticky Labels: I used to use these as hole reinforcers before I managed to get hold of hole reinforcers, but now they’re just useful for labelling plastic wallets and folders as I get them.
- Timetable: I always have a copy of my timetable stuck on the inside of my folder just in case I forget my planner. It’s all colour-coded and it’s laminated so that it doesnt get tatty.
- Rectangular Page Markers: These are post-it brand and are plastic, so I don’t tend to write on these ones because they’re also reusable (and quite expensive). These will usually be used to indicate a new topic in my textbooks so I can flip to them easily.
- Removable Page Tabs: I use these in a similar way to the rectangular page markers, but I use them for my written notes instead. I’ll also write on these because they’re relatively cheap.
- Arrow Page Markers: I’ll usually use these kind of markers for actually pointing out important points on a page, either in textbooks or in my own notes.
- Post-It Notes: I’ll use these to add extra points onto my notes that I don’t have space to add onto the actual paper. I’ll also use them to add little reminders in my planner and things like that.
- Correction Fluid: this is so vital to keeping neat notes. I like the pen ones better than the little bottles because they seem more precise and they’re easier to open.
- Eraser: The Helix erasers are some of the best in my opinion, and they usually do them in multipacks fairly cheaply too.
- Highlighters: I have 8 colours of highlighters in my highlighting system. I’ll probably make a separate post on what I use each for in the future, but all of them have their purposes.
- Coloured Pens: I use Paper Mate’s Inkjoy ballpoint pens for my notes because they’re fairly cheap and come in a great range of colours. I love to make my notes colourful and these are vital to that.
- Mechanical Pencils: I’ll usually only use mechanical pencils for my schoolwork (with the exception of art, of course) because you don’t have to bother with sharpening and they’re way more precise.
- Sticky Note Page: These sticky notes are all different shapes, sizes and colours and I just use these for whatever comes up. The bigger ones are good for making to-do lists on and the smaller ones are useful to add in definitions of words or a date.
