Gummy Bear Studying
Ever been staring at a book trying your darndest to actually read what's in front of you but just can't muster up enough energy to more your eyes from right to left. Then you my friend need this hack in your life.
Just place a gummy bear after every couple of paragraphs on your book and whenever you reach that word you can reward yourself with a sweet treat. I honestly think they should start doing this from primary school age. If gummy bears aren't your thing feel free to substitute them with whatever tickles your fancy. Cola bottles, white mice or if you're watching your weight carrot stick although I cant think of anything worse than studying and being on a diet at the same time.
The Glass Amplifier
Are you a heavy sleeper? Class starts at 9am but in reality you're not getting to your seat until at least 9.45am (10am if you need a shower.) Is your alarm just not loud enough to awake you from your slumber?
Dont worry all you need to do is work this neat little life hack into your nightly routine. After you have put on your jammies, brushed your teeth and checked your facebook for the last time just set that alarm and stick your phone in an (empty obviously) glass. When your alarm goes off at 8am it will echo through the glass with great vengeance and furious anger. Not only that but it will be enough to awaken even the snoriest Snorlax.
Student Cuisine For Two
Life in student digs can be tough. Your flat mate has the day off so decides to come in at 3am while you on the other hand have a 7am start. You flat mate never lets you know when you're down to the last few sheets of toilet roll. You only one shower, one toilet and one microwave.
Well you can scratch that one off your list because we have it sussed. Next time you are heating up dinner (or last nights fried rice) just stick one of the bowls on top of a mug. Now you don't need to fight over who gets their dinner first, you can eat at the same time sitting on the couch arguing over what to watch on your one television. What do you expect? we can't solve every problem.!
Have you ever stepped foot on a train feeling as fresh as a daisy? Sit down in your seat, get yourself comfy and before you know it you are in an all out losing battle with your eye lids and doing that weird thing when you jump in your sleep (much to the amusement of the other passengers?) Then you wake up in the middle of nowhere and someone has stolen your bag?
Well if you ever do find yourself in that situation try sticking your leg through one of the straps on your bag. That way if you do get into a tussle with your eyelids no one can steal your precious belongings while you drool on the window. Plus if someone does try it you can always enjoy the excuse they give you while the are holding your leg and your bag at the same time.
Binder Beer Pyramid
You've studied all night while eating gummy bears, you woke up at the right time to get to class, you had a lovely sleep on the train home while you bag was safe and sound with your leg through the strap and you made two dinners at once using one microwave. What a day! Now its time to celebrate with an ice cold refreshing beer but you're failing miserably and your beer is rolling up and down the fridge shelves like a boat on a stormy sea. You take one out and it fizzes up all over the place when you open it and it has totally ruined your otherwise perfect day.
Or maybe it hasnt. Maybe you got a file binder and used it to create a perfect beer pyramid in your fridge and now you beer is everything its supposed to be; cold, refreshing and never, ever shaken.
