SAT countdown - 7 days!

Nope, no smiley face at the end of this title - studying for the SAT is not fun. At all. Since I will be taking the test next Saturday and seeing that this blog is related to school/exams/etc., I thought I'll tell you all how I study throughout the day up until the exam! Are any of you taking the SAT too? If so, how's your prep?


What I did today:

Not too long ago, this blog turned one! On that day, I decided to share some of my "Blog Firsts" with you. Today, I'll share 5 things that I learned during my first year of blogging! Maybe it'll inspire you to start blogging. Maybe it'll clear up things that you've wanted to know about blogging!

How I Organize: My Toiletries/Cosmetics Pouch! :)

*Hi! Welcome to my blog if you're visiting from the "One Project at a Time" link party at A Bowl Full Of Lemons! Hope you enjoy my post! Feel free to look around some more! If you would like to know a little more about me, click here!*

With traveling across the world, (click here to know about it!) I wanted to keep all of my toiletries/cosmetics in a reasonably sized pouch to use at the airport (I didn't use anything on the plane - ended up sleeping too much! :P) and also at the hotel! So, let's get into it!

*not affiliated with any of the brands mentioned, all opinions are my own!* :)

If anyone close you know ever makes a round-trip flight in business class, take advantage of it and ask if you can have one of the travel pouches that they would have received - they make good pouches for all of your travel needs! This pouch is from Emirates, which I took from my dad (he had four!) :P

How I Organize: My Carry On Bags! :)

In this post here, I tell you about how we are moving to the US! (already moved!) Since the flights were about 20 hours in total, I decided to show you what's in my carry on bags and how I organized them!


Carry on #1 is a regular backpack. Carry on #2 is a backpack which I used as a laptop bag but I also kept quite a bit of other things as well! Each bag is under 7 kilograms, the limit for carry on baggage.

SAT Subject Tests! :)

I'm back! Finally. The past 10 days have been so crazy - traveling, jet lag but most of all, studying. Yesterday, I took the SAT subject tests, actually, 3 SAT subject tests! I took Math Level 2, Biology (M) and Chemistry.
Well, how did I do? Before that, how did I prepare? I studied from the Barron's books for each subject, which are supposed to be much much harder than the actual test, especially for Math level 2. I studied for a little over a month, but did a lot of practice tests and revision throughout the past week. I'll break down my expectations and experiences by subject:
