howllor: My sister is currently doing a project on norse mythology for her religion class. She didn’t think they had been told enough about it, considering it’s part of our heritage, so she took matters into her own hands.

psych-facts: 1. Study in different places. Studies show that studying in different places helps us remember better because our brain becomes more active in trying to make connections. In one classic study, participants were asked to study a list of 40 vocabularies in two different rooms - one windowless and cluttered, the other modern with a courtyard.

9 Tips To Help You Focus When Studying
psych-facts: 1. Get Rid of Distractions This should be pretty obvious right? But actually, it’s not. We often get distracted without realizing that we already are. Once distracted, we engage in the new task and we don’t pay attention to what we were originally supposed to do. Instead, to get rid of distractions, identify what distract you and then take proactive measures to not let them...

First off, I think you can very easily imagine hobbits having sex. In fact, if not them, then who? They’re very much the sort of earthy, sanguine people who would have very few problems with sex. The fact that they seem to have very...

bana05: I wanted my first-year film students to understand what happens to a story when actual human beings inhabit your characters, and the way they can inspire storytelling. And I wanted to teach them how to look at headshots and what you might be able to tell from a headshot. So for the past few years I’ve done a small experiment with them. Some troubling shit always occurs. It works like...
