How to Take Notes from a Textbook



Hey guys! I’ve received so many questions about reading textbooks and taking notes on that, so I am going to share with you how I do it. 

I like to write on the margins. Not highlight. I don’t use a special color coding technique to separate my comments from key terms from titles from definitions.

My system is very simple and makes sense to me. All I use are:

  • A pencil
  • An eraser
  • Small (not tiny) sticky notes

“You have your whole life ahead of you. Be smart. Study hard and be independent…You must rely on yourself. No matter what else people may steal from you, they will never be able to take away your knowledge. The world is changing. You must make your own life outside this home.”

- Adeline Yen Mah, Falling Leaves: The Memoir of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter (via wordsnquotes)


It’s depressing seeing how many people give up on their dreams at a young age because they’re told to “be realistic”.

Hi this might be a weird question but I need some advice. I'm in my last year of high school, and I'm totally obsessed with one of my teachers. He's young, not married, attractive, funny, you see my point. It's getting to the point where i simply cannot focus in his class! this is really distracting me from my studies and I need a good grade in this class. Advice??

  1. Stop this crush in its tracks
  2. Stop this crush in its tracks
  3. Stop this crUsH IN ITS TRACKS

These things never work out. It is illegal for someone in a position of power over you, especially a school teacher and double especially if you’re a minor, to pursue, encourage or engage in a romantic or sexual relationship with you. Stop dreaming.

In all seriousness, even after you graduate it’s unlikely this teacher will be willing to pursue a relationship with you. He’ll probably see you as his student for many years, if you even keep in contact, and he’d probably find that weird. He probably has a gf/bf of his own who is closer to his own age and more aligned with his interests. It’s true that nothing’s impossible - but I strongly advise you to let this one go. It’s only going to hurt you in the long run. I know this is harsh advice, but it’s true. You’re not the first person to be in love with a teacher and you won’t be the last, but you mustn’t give in to your feelings. Use your brain. Focus on your studies.

Good luck xx
