My Favourite College/Uni Tips Videos!


Hey guys!

I will be leaving for my University soon, and I have been watching loads of videos that can help me with this awesome experience. I realized that so many of you guys may be going through the same things, so why not share with you some videos that helped me organize my things for college. I will also list down the things I will carry for my university dorm with me in a future post if you like! :)

So here we go! I hope these help you as much as they help me! =)

You will find yourself doing shopping for your university or college dorm. This I find as one of the most time consuming and confusing parts, because you never know whether you are packing too much or too less. One video that helped me out a lot in this dilemma was this one. I also suggest you watch Meghan Rienks’s videos for what to pack for your dorm.

The first thing you will experience as you move in to college is making friends and having roommates. Your orientation will be the best time to know other freshmen. This video is really helpful and has lots of good advice about that!

To have a good college experience, you need to stay in your limits yet have a free mind. The most helpful video is one I found as a random youtube suggestion, but this is definitely worth it.

College is generally a place where students tend to slack off, they do not study much. They end up concentrating more on their social environment and their new found ‘independence’ than their studies. It is essential to fair well in college. There are 2 videos in this list that can help you set your mind to studies, and help you fare well in class.

 

I hope this little playlist helps you out in your college/university experience. If you have any other video suggestions for college that I should consider, do let me know. I’d love to watch them! :D

See you next time!

P.s: The collaboration blog that I have with my friends called LifeFourWays will in no way stop. In fact, you can see L4W back in action starting this August! We have loads of stuff planned, and we hope you are excited as much as we are!

The Fault In Our Stars : Movie Review

Hey Guys!

I got a beautiful opportunity to watch the movie, ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ today. The movie is based upon the bestselling novel by the same name written by John Green. It was a pleasure watching that movie, and I definitely recommend it to all of you out there.

The story revolves around two characters and their families and their love story – Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters. They are star crossed lovers, but unlike other romance novels, they both suffer from various forms of cancer. It is a sad story, yet a believable one. It is a sad story, yet it is beautiful. It is a heartbreaking love story, yet it is magical.

The movie takes you through a rollercoaster of emotions. A little bit of dry humour also makes the movie very heart warming. If there is one thing I learnt from the movie, it is…

We Love You Connor


“If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.” -Gail Sheehy

 

Hey guys!

On Monday morning, I woke up looking forward to a new O2L video. It has become a tradition of mine. Watching the videos early in the morning makes my day, especially because they are always happy and energetic! It makes me feel that if they depict those five minutes so energetically, I can try and make my own life less boring.

 

It was a shock this morning when I woke up to the news of Connor Franta quitting O2L. However, he left the collaboration project on a positive note. Stating that the boys are his family and would always be. He also sent forth a beautiful message. He said that he was doing this for himself, and that what is his passion had now started seeming like a job. I completely agree with his words. It takes courage to admit what he did and I wish him all the best! You would still be our Frantastic Monday Connor!

He taught me a very important lesson as well. We do so many things for so many people in our lives, but in that whole process, somewhere we forget to live for ourselves. We are our best friends and it is only us who can make us happy. So Connor, I support your decision and will continue to stalk you on twitter :P and wish you all the love for a new chapter in life! Looking forward to seeing you with bigger and beautiful creative outlets! :D

Always Frantastic :’)

7 things I learnt from being a kid


Srishti:

My new blogpost! I talk about a few things I learn from being a child! :D

Hello Everyone!

Childhood is the most beautiful age group. You can be free of responsibility and fly like a free bird. There is a beauty that that period of life possesses. A beauty that most people seem to lose by the time they reach the age of fourteen. So, from my childhood and from the many amazing kiddo cousins of my family, I have learnt a few things from being a kid. I feel like there are some little things that change your life, things that make you happy and see the world as a much more beautiful place that we can learn from being a kid.

So, let’s begin: 7 things I learnt from being a kid!

  1. The power of Smile. When you see a little baby giggling…

Entrance Exams!


Srishti:

I wrote a poem on my poetry blog about entrance examinations for universities! I hope you like it! :D

Originally posted on Srishti:

Given the board exams,
our brains, the human RAMs.
Finally the results are out
it’s time to scream and shout
with joy and laughter
the school is over, the close of a chapter.

Now we plan for university
career plans have a diversity.

The admission process is not so easy
entrance exams, not so breezy.
Competition overloaded
young minds hard at work.

But Alas! You did not do that right
A negative mark and the goal drifts from your sight.
Parents are worried, children are sad;
“What is going to happen to our young lad?”.

Soon these children will move away
To a city afar, a different day.
They are self built with care and love.
I can assure you now,
these gems will change the world!

I hope you liked this short self composed poem!
See you next time

May Favourites!


Hey everyone!

I saw AmazingPhil do his May favourites video today. I felt like if he had the courage to try something new, I should gather some of my own and do it as well! So here is a May favourites blogpost for you guys!

The first thing on my list is these Origami hearts that I have been making for the past few days! I have made them in so many colours and I literally have a ‘Jar of hearts’ in my bedroom! I feel so creative and relaxed when I make these. They also look so beautiful as cards, because you can write a mini message inside them too. If you would like to know how to make them, I may do a DIY tutorial on them someday (if you want). Just drop me a line in the comment section/my email/my twitter.

DIY Heart

I have recently done another DIY project. I made my own lipgloss!! I am so proud of it and it is this beautiful shade of pink that I love to wear. It’s become my to-go lipgloss. I hope you like it too! :D

Okay, so as you know I watch a lot of youtube. So, my favourite video from last month is………? The Prank Calls video that Louise (Sprinkleofglitter) did with Dan (Danisnotonfire)!!! The video is so hilarious and so awkward that you want to laugh all the way through it (and ofcourse, it has Dan in it).

I have not been reading much of anything in the last month, but I did stumble upon a book from my teenhood (I know, it’s not a word). This book is called ‘A Little Love Song’ and is written by Michelle Magorian. It is a very beautiful coming of age novel, which I would definitely recommend! 

It’s summer and it is the perfect time for braiding your hair. My fave summer braid for May, which I have done quiet a lot on my hair as well is a classic but beautiful French braid. I won’t go into too much detail, but I have been loving either french braiding my hair or doing a fishtail braid in the last month.

There are so many that I would love to share with you all beautiful people! But this is it for today :)
If you like my DIY projects do let me know. I want to bring back a lot of adventure to this blog soon! If you like this sort of posts, let me know and I may start doing them more often.

Thanks and I will see you next time,
Srish. xx

We are going to start by taking the left edge and folding the paper half such that the left edge is exactly on the right edge and make a crease and then unfold

Now we are going to do the same thing the other way. We take the top edge and pull it over to the bottom edge, press and make a crease and then unfold

So now we take the bottom edge and pull it up to the horizontal crease in middle and press and make another crease and…
