I second what Qualsa said. Don't feed into cameras when you can avoid it. hopefully you can get someone to slate and log the shots down. it'll save your lives and make things SO much easier.

notice how your Zoom writes the file names. I think they are usually STE-000 or MONO-000 depending on how you record it (haven't used 4 channels yet) and then write that on the slate. I also have an h4n so the naming conventions might be a little different. for films i'd recommend it naming by the shot or take over by the date. it'll be easier, trust me.

next: don't worry about lavs. Not yet. you have enough to worry about and lavs and 50 cables are going to tie you down, OR you're going to have a hell of a time trying to figure out what frequencies are usable and not. plus you can even still get interference on frequencies that you thought were empty, but they actually weren't. So, please avoid that for now. You need to set aside non-project time to get that stuff right. Even then, it's different in every county or city.

now, Learn what your mics can and can't do. This is essential. The Zoom has great warmth, so maybe for closeups in the studio, you might get better audio using the zoom's sensitive microphones verses a shotgun or something with a long pole, but I can't know for sure without being there, so that one is up to you.

third, back to the slating, if you've never slated before, here is a good one we are using for a feature we are filming. God it has helped out tons:
Right here

if you want to make things a little easier, you can get some [Gaff tape]9http://www.amazon.com/Pro-FLGRN250-Gaffers-yards-Length/dp/B000SYYIGU) to write down things that wont change. IE director, production name, etc. that and a sharpie will save a lot of time.

But what's a slate without a log book? We've been fine with just:



Roll | Scene | Shot | Take | Audio File | Good/bad/fair
----|-----|----|----|----------|-------------
01 | 1 | 1 | 1 | STE-000 | **
01 | 1 | 1 | 2 | STE-001 |
(train horn)
01 | 1 | 1 | 3 | STE-002 | (distant horn during whispering line)
01 | 1 | N/a | N/A  | STE-003 | ADR - Whispering Line
01 | 1 | 2 | 1 | STE-004 |
(actor fell down)
01 | 1 | 2 | 2 | STE-005 | (might have clipped)
01 | 1 | 2 | 3 | STE-006 | ****
01 | 1 | 2 | 4 | STE-007 |
Safety
01 | 1 | 3 | 1 | MONO-000 | Wide

This is how we've been slating: http://i.imgur.com/dMVsGbp.jpg

It's pretty simple and saves a ton of time when editing. If you don't have your own adaptation of logging things, this is a great time to get in the habit. If you think you can handle not logging it, at least make sure to see if you can call out your audio file name and get a loud CLAP once the camera has started rolling and before the director calls action and definitely before yall both cut. that way the editor can know what file to look at.

if you cant get it during the shot, try and ADR. If you can ADR on set in between shots or once yall wrap up, please do. it'll be so much easier to do while everything is fresh on the actors minds. Don't be afraid to get everyone quiet. sometimes you can't get in that sweet spot where you know it sounds the best, but they gotta get the shot. So pull the actors aside and get their audio if you need to. But try try try and get the audio as best that you can so you don't have to do the extra work and can move on to other things.

DEAD CAT'S for the external mics. Find one that fits your setup.

and RED HEADs for the zoom.

Those will save your life.

feel free to correct me. I am just another dude learning his craft. I told you everything to the best of my current knowledge. I'm sure that eventually I'll find better methods than what my crew is currently using someday down the road.

(had to split this into 2 parts)

PART 1

So you're struggling with taking forever to make decisions, and then probably second guessing yourself whenever you do make a choice.

Boy have I been there. My family used to want to murder me for how long I would take to pick a movie to rent at Blockbuster when I was a kid.

And I carried that trait with me for a long time. I was the kind of person who would read EVERY Amazon review of every thing I wanted to buy and then cross reference ten different websites just trying to pick out a freaking rice cooker.

Another thing you mentioned is how you kick yourself for not spending your free time working on your passion projects but then when that time comes, you just waste it away on video games, Netflix, Youtube, Reddit, etc.

Been there too! Love it! Hate it! Hate myself! Love the shows!

So what can you do?

I'm going to throw a lot of information at you at once here. What I want you to do is take each section and work on it for 2 weeks before moving onto the next one. TRUST ME. Taking thing slow is so much better than trying to fix everything at once. Imagine if you had just written 1 page a day for the past year. You'd have a damn book. But are you going to stop what you're doing right now and write 1 page? No. Why not? Because you haven't created that habit yet. You're thinking "big fucking deal, one page. One page gets me nowhere". TRUE. But one page a day 365 days in a row gets you Harry Potter.

(insert image of that guy tapping his head with that "Uh huh, ain't I smart" face)

So remember, take this slow. Work on each thing for 2 weeks before moving on.

FIRST, the set up. Go to Amazon and invest in this $15 dry erase board. Got a little extra money? Then buy a 4 foot by 3 foot board. It'll make things easier. (But if you're not buying the one I'm linking to then you only have 5 minutes to find a board and buy it. Start a timer now)

https://www.amazon.com/Magnetic-Markes-Assorted-Colors-Fridge/dp/B0186B46CM/ref=sr_1_5?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1523593206&sr=1-5&keywords=dry+erase+board

This board is going to be your tracking system. You're gonna draw a calendar on there and you'll number the days (starting with today or whenever you get the board) and you're going to start making a check on the days when you complete your habit. At the end of each 14 day challenge you'll just write down how many out of 14 you got.

Each cycle (2 weeks) you'll try to do better and better. So if the first cycle you get 4 out of 14 checks, next cycle try to get 8 out of 14 (Here's a little secret, you'll probably be hitting 14 out of 14 by the end of the month.)

Simple as that. Now lets begin with the tasks. I'm just gonna target each thing you mentioned in your comment. Feel free to take what I saw and cater it to your needs because you know you better than I do.

PART 1: STOP AGONIZING OVER DECISIONS: Ever hear of analysis paralysis? Google that shit. You got it. Choices suck. We have way too many choices in our world today. It fucking wrecks us. Too many mates to choose from, too many apples to choose, too many movies, too many shoes, too many shampoos!

Here is what is going on in your head: You are afraid of making a bad choice and then regretting it. Okay, that's a fair thing to be afraid of. BUUUUUUT you have made a critical error in your logic. How many choices a day are you making that are going to TOTALLY ruin your life if you make the wrong choice. Not very many. Those kinds of choices don't come along very often, pretty much never (unless you decide to drive a motorcycle through a corn field backwards while naked with a pound of C4 strapped to your head and a bottle of prune juice in your stomach).

But you're treating all of these decisions in your life like they're important. How many of these tough decisions that you've had to make in the past year do you even remember? Probably not very many.

So what can you do?

First, understand this. And I mean REALLY understand it. Most of your choices don't really matter. Maybe you go to this restaurant, maybe you go to that one. Doesn't really matter does it. Maybe you get these shoes, maybe you get these. Who cares. Maybe you go to this party, maybe you go to that party. Stop wasting your time WORRYING ABOUT THE FUTURE OF YOUR CHOICE and just make the choice. Literally set a timer on your phone for like 2 minutes and make a choice by then.

Trust your gut. Your intestines have neurons in them just like your brain and so your gut actually does a little bit of thinking (no joke, its' weird) and so when people say "go with your gut" that's not just a saying. Your instincts are a lot better than you think.

Just practice for a few weeks making fast choices. BOOM! Just do it. Bam! Do it and no turning back. I recently went through this when I was deciding on a pair of boots to buy. Did I want to buy these or these? These have this kind of leather but these have this. These have this color but this one has this. Will this look good with jeans? Can I wear these at a party? WHO GIVES A FUCK. They're boots. Buy the fucking boots and wear them and if you don't like them then buy another pair. Fuck all the wasting time thinking about it.

SO HERE'S YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Every day I want you to practice making a fast decision and then just going with it. Don't think about what could have been. Just go with it. A good way to practice is by deciding what you're going to eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Just make a fast choice.

If you happen to get to a tougher decision, pull out your phone and set a time for 2 minutes. Make your choice by then and then decide to live with it for the rest of your life.

Do this for 2 weeks.



TWO WEEKS LATER


Okay, onto number two.

PART 2 - You mention wanting to get shit done but then not getting shit done and playing video games, but then feeling guilty for playing the video games.

What is happening here is a tale as old as time. You know it as well as I do. SO I'm just gonna get to how to fix it.

It's all about scheduling. You have to schedule when you're going to work and when you're going to play. And then work when it's time to work and play when it's time to play.

Do you know how fucking great it feels to have time scheduled to do whatever the hell you want with absolutely no guilt? Because you know that you've done what you needed to do and now is LITERAL TIME TO PLAY.

It's fantastic.

So how do you do it?

Just start blocking on 1 hour a day to do the thing you want to do (writing, programming, dancing, whatever it is). Then block out 1 hour a day to play. Easy as that.

Get your shit done first (in the morning if you can) and then schedule 1 hour later to do WHATEVER YOU WANT. But make sure that during that 1 hour you don't let any thoughts of guilt or anything creep in.

Do this for two weeks. Write down on a sheet of paper a weekly schedule but only schedule those 2 hours. The rest are for whatever. BUT KEEP THOSE 2 HOURS SACRED AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT (in the advance course you would eventually get to a point where you're doing 4 hours a day of your deep career work and then the rest of the day you can schedule whatever the hell you want. Your brain can really only SUPER FOCUS for about 4 good hours. After that it's kinda frazzled so you might as well let it rest and absorb fun and games and movies and books and sexy people)


TWO WEEKS LATER

Part 3: Write!

Now we're gonna have some fun. This one is super simple. For the next two weeks this will be your morning routine. You'll wake up, get out of bed, pee, brush your teeth, sit down at a table and drink some water/coffee. And then you'll set a timer and you will write by hand for 10 minutes. That's it! That's all you gotta do! BUT the thing is, you have to write non stop. DO NOT STOP WRITING. Do it for ten minutes. What are you gonna write about? Whatever the fuck you want. The goal here isn't to write anything good, the goal here is just to write and to get your brain unblocked and flowing onto the page. Watch this, I'm about to do 60 seconds of writing like how I would do in the morning. Setting my timer....aaaaand go:

Oaky so I'm writing. I'm sitting here at my desk and I'm about to go home but I"m gonna go by the store on the way home and get some more eggs and so asparagus and I'm gonna make some more of those egg muffin things. I hope the new muffin tray came in from amazon today. I fucked that last one up. lesson learned. man i hope that annilaliton is still playing at the arc light. really need too let hat in theaters. That shit looks like good. Well, i haven't actually seen what it looks like but i hear it's amazing. love alex garland

and that's it. See all the typos? Yup, no going back to fix shit. Just write.

(If you want to get advanced, this technique is from the book "The Artists Way" and it's fucking genius. Your life is going to change, no joke. This is a good way to start a journal b/c you can just kind of free write about what you did yesterday and what you'll do today)

DO THIS FOR 2 WEEKS

u/NataDeFabi · 2 pointsr/RandomActsofMakeup

Ok this one is one of my favoritest organizer ideas. You could use this for maybe brushes or the items you use most. And you can use an old antique frame so it looks just the way you want :) It's basically a magnetic board and you add little magnetic stripes to some items and pin them up Idea 1

Magnetic board It's not that expensive and you can get these in all sizes, so if you don't have much space it's perfect :)

Another thing if you have much space on the walls is take little containers and hang them on the wall, so you can fill your stuff in them. I can't find a picture of it now, sorry.

I love this organizer, it's just so cute :)

For your brushed you could maybe do this. You could decorate the glasses to fit your house and color theme of your room :)

This mirror is the cutest!

I'm not sure about the English cottage theme, but this desk and mirror is absolutely fabulous too. It might not be what you're looking for though.

For your palettes maybe this, since you have quite a few

A short list of ideas:

u/totallyarogue · 1 pointr/rpg

I came here to recommend this initiative tracker - I used it for 13th Age, not Pathfinder, but it was massively helpful. I hunted around and found it for $20, not $35, but you could probably make a version of your own with a small whiteboard base and some fun fantasy-style decorations.

The cheapest minis that aren't ugly and have a wide variety you'll find are likely Bones from Reaper. They aren't pre-painted but they are easy (and fun!) to paint and a beginner's set of paints are cheap. We do painting parties with our gaming groups and it's a nice way to get a great set of minis and let people unleash their inner artist.

Every GM I know, myself included, loves the Critical Hit d20 from ThinkGeek. It's incredibly fun to roll it, get a crit and slowly raise your screen up while staring at your players as they realize their impending doom heralded by the rapidly flashing red light.

A battlemap and the (wet erase) markers to go with it is the only other tool that I regularly use when GMing - depending on the game it might not be necessary at all, but it's nice to have it to reference, especially for a new group.

Things that will help you make a movie

Alright. I would suggest that if you have a smart phone, you film on that. Iphones and Andriods particularly have fairly decent cameras on them. As for computers-PC, you have windows movie maker built in. MAC, you should have Imovie. These will be your editing platforms. If you don't have a smart phone, A cheap video camera will do. A mini tripod will make your life loads easier. It will make it so all your footage does not shake. However, you can make a cheap monopod to fit anything. String, and a metal washer or something else circular and slightly heavy will do. You can find out how to make it here Skip to about 2:45 to see how to do it.

A dry erase board works as a great teleprompter-reminder, guide, silent directions, etc. (It also works pretty well as a bounce, but I am 100% you won't be doing that, haha. But hey if you ever get more into movie making, anything white makes a good bounce!) That's really it (be careful of your audio. You could potentially get a cheap mic that'll pic up noise better, but you should be alright if you're just careful about it!) you should be good to go with all of that.







u/Boohyabuddha · 15 pointsr/college

I'll try to be specific with what I recommend, giving brands and models if I can. Bear in mind, I'm from a STEM major, so some of this is stuff I've used for math and other related classes that you might not need.

  1. Uniball KURU TOGA Mechanical Pencils - These are hands-down the best mechanical pencils I've ever used. It has a mechanism that rotates the lead as you lift up the pencil (I think? or maybe as you write...) so you get a sharp, clean script nearly all the time. My only gripe is I lose the eraser caps a lot, and if you don't have them on it's difficult to click more lead. The "Roulette" model might be different.

  2. TOPS Engineering Computation Pad - I actually take my in-class notes on my Surface Pro (highly recommend it), and use my next recommendation for practice problems, but I use this paper for my hand-in assignments. I don't like ruled paper for any kind of computation work, and with plain paper I tend to veer off and don't get clean lines. With this paper, though, I can see the grid on the backside through the front, allowing me to get a clean look without thick lines muddying up the aesthetics. This isn't necessary, but for me it makes my work easier to read and organize, and it often times is the only green paper in the homework pile so it's easy to pick out as well!

  3. NUboard A4 Dry Erase Notebook - My wife bought this for me for my first semester because I was going through so much paper to do practice problems, and because I hated standing up to do work on a bigger dry erase board. It's the size of a normal notebook with transparent sheets overlapping the dry erase panels, and your notes will (more or less) stay on the board until you erase them. By this I mean that you can do some notes or problems, close the book, shove it in your backpack, and when you open it it will be as you left it. This thing changed my studying habits, and I use a lot less paper now.

    Here's some other random things I didn't think of before I realized I need them in the moment. I try to keep these things in my backpack most of the time:

    Surge Protector - I do all my studying in the library, and if I don't get there early, all the desks with outlets get snatched up quickly (especially near midterms and finals). I ended up picking up a cheap one at Micro Center and keep it in my backpack in case I need to sit somewhere further away. Also, it helps others that aren't close to one either. :)

    Noise-Cancelling Headphones - I study in the "absolute quiet" floors, but even then some people make some noise just shuffling papers, zipping-unzipping stuff, eating lunch, etc. You don't need the Bose fancy ones; anything that keeps the noise out (and, I should mention, your own music IN) will work.

    Chegg/Wolfram Subscription - These saved my academic butt so many times. Wolfram might not be necessary if you're only taking one math course as a GEP requirement, but if you're taking up to Calc2 or 3 it's great. It can solve integrations and derivatives, but, more importantly, it will also show you a step-by-step solution. Chegg, however, I think is worth it for nearly any class. I've only had one or two textbooks whose answers weren't on there, and for the others it was a lifesaver. Professors will sometimes not post solutions or answers to problems in class or on homework, and books will often only have the answer in the back. Chegg, however, not only has the answer, but, more often than not, has step-by-step solutions. I used this all the time for two things specifically: 1) Check my homework before I turn it in to make sure I understood the processes (and got the answers right), and 2) doing practice problems from the book that the professor didn't address or post solutions for.

    Hope this helps!
u/d4rch0n · 15 pointsr/lifehacks

I had one for a couple years that I got from craigslist for free. Offices are always getting rid of shit like that.

Alternatively, I actually think it's worth buying one if you rather have a nice framed whiteboard without spending hours of work making it look solid. You can easily spend a few hours crafting your own and it probably won't end up looking nearly as good as what you end up making. You get a nice perfect rectangle with a perfect frame and a little spot to hold markers. The effort it'd take to build that quality isn't worth saving $45 IMO.

Bought this one after my craigslist one got screwed up... for $60 I think it's worth it. It's a really good size and it's super solid and screws right into the wall with drywall screws and has a nice metal frame. It's about 4 times as much as that panel board but I think it's totally worth it. I'd rather have something that looks good framed in my office and is attached strongly to the wall.

Mine right now from amazon. It is a lot more clear than it looks there - I used photoshop smudge to hide some work stuff. Unless you're going huge and 4' x 3' isn't enough, I wouldn't bother considering making my own. Now, if it was between spending $600 on those massive ones, sure. But for $60?

u/roland00 · 13 pointsr/ADHD

ADHD people do not have a good verbal working memory. They can not remember things they need to do inside their head as a verbal list, like steps, 1, 2, 3, 4. You only use your verbal working memory on things you are not actively focusing on right now. The importance of your verbal working memory is to retain information in a temporary backup, while you do the things you are focusing on. You retain the information so when you are done with your primary thing your brain can access its working memory and now make a secondary item into a primary item.

 

Verbally asking you to remember all these things is asking a person who has to use a wheelchair to go up stairs. If your partner is doing that and is getting frustrated or passive aggressive than this is his or her own fault and not your own. Your are ADHD, you have a disorder, you are slightly disabled.

This is not to say you do not have responsibilities, instead we need to create an artificial prosthesis, an elevator, to deal with your disability.

 

 

You need to make this information visual and you need to interact with it in your environment.

  • Instead of telling you to do the dishes, write post it notes do the dishes, and put it on the bathroom mirror or if you want to be cute, put the post it note on your forehead.

  • Buy a whiteboard, buy three like this one and place it on your fridge, your door you leave the house, anywhere where you will see it.

  • If you are a person who uses the computer often and does not have a password to log into the computer, open up word and make it fullscreen and place the note in big letters do X, Y, and Z

  • Almost everyone has a smartphone today. With Android, iOS, and Windows Phone there are calendar apps where multiple people can enter information into the calendar (sometimes called group calendar). Google Calendar is one such thing. This person can set up calendar events and reminders that you receive via text message and/or email and you can even make them reoccurring.

    Another Way to help an ADHD person is to make an event have consequences. Our brain does not retain useless information in our verbal working memory. If something does not have immediate consequences then our brain does not store it in working memory, or if something else comes up our brain stores that in working memory instead and since your working memory is limited you "forget" the other piece of information.

    So you need to have consequences both positive and negative if you do not get your chores done. These do not have to be horrible like the consequences your parents have when you were 10, they can be fun like if you do not do chores for a week, you have to dress up like a french maid, with an apron and a hat and everything, and do housework all day on the weekend while making your partner iced teas, and giving them massages while they relax and watch tv, or do whatever they want.

    One thing that will help your brain is having immediate artificial consequences even if the real consequences are delayed. Aka a token economy. Having 3 chores that have to be done daily, and if you do not get those chores done you do not get a poker chip. If you have 5 poker chips at the end of the week you two do something fun in town, like going out to eat. Poker chips are reset every Sunday, so if you do not do chores 5 days out of every 7 days, you do not get the positive reward.

    Your brain can organize towards the poker chips, your brain understands the importance of chores and such. The problem is your brain thinks 30 other things are important, so if it does not have that physical reminder, that you interact with in your physical environment than you do not store this information in your faulty verbal working memory. If the information is not in your working memory then of course you can not do it. And if you do not make the event immediate, even if the immediacy is artifical you will always put the event off for everything else seems more important to you, everything else needs to be done now, dishes can wait.

u/DnDYetti · 3 pointsr/secretsanta

Just some ideas from someone who finished college not too long ago (All gifts from Amazon).

u/tanplusblue · 9 pointsr/boardgames

If it was me, I'd go for a [simple](http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60152340/] and large dining table. The girlfriend loves these kinds of tables because they can be used with a combination of chairs and benches. Nothing fancy or custom, as easily used for seating people for barbeques (assuming your basement opens up to your yard) as it is for gaming. IMO, having cutouts and cup holders is really limiting and can occasionally get in the way of your gaming needs.

Instead go for simple add-ons like a lazy susan. If you're worried about rings or condensation ruining the table/game pieces, large coasters are always reliable. For food, serving trays are always good, as are TV trays.

If you need a large surface with a grid like nerdbloggerwil linked to, it should be easy enough to mount a pane of plexiglass onto a wooden frame. You can also get plain, unfinished slabs of whiteboard from hardware stores and make whatever marks you need on them. Keep them off to the side and whip them out as needed.

Depending on how you wanted to set up the space, I love this style of bookcase as a room divider. You can use them to wall in a more intimate (or perhaps more intense) gaming space while showing off your collection to either side of the room. A more traditional sideboard is great too, as the top can function as a bar. ! As I was searching for a minibar to link, I saw this which totally works for both game storage and drinks storage.

White boards are crazy expensive, especially glass ones. There are plenty of cheap alternatives (white board paint, those cheap 4’x8’ white board hardboard panels from home depot), which are all well and good. But if you want something nice and don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars, try this option.

It’s up to you how you hang the final product. I used some generic 50lb picture hangers (pictured). I had to put a couple washers in-between the picture hanger and the wall in order for the machine screws to clear.

To construct, you simply mount the plate strap to the mounting holes on the back of the glass ikea table top using the machine screws. You’ll need a couple washers to make it snug. I put straps top and bottom, but you can probably get away with just one. I’d still recommend putting in all four screws to keep the glass even with the wall.

Then use whatever mounting hardware you’d like. I went with simple 50 lb picture hangers. They worked great. I put two side by side. So essentially I got a 40” by 40” glass white board for around 80 bucks.

(Oh, and please excuse the blurry pictures. My iPhone stopped autofocusing, so it’s stuck at a certain focus depth which happens to be about a foot from the camera. So anything farther than that is blurry.)

Some examples of flowcharts I have would be the interconnected factors which make up my vocational challenges. Another is the pattern I noticed I go through regarding my social needs (I titled it "the gifted shame-coping loop" and another, most recent, "the gifted mirroring-discernment loop"). Another flowchart I have is a map of my values and how they relate to each other. Sometimes I get discouraged because I can't quite make a visual of the pattern I recognize but want to. I mostly started making these flowcharts because it was much more efficient in communicating my challenges to new therapists or people who care to understand me.


I am wondering if glass boards are any good? Like this one, for example: https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Visual-Direct-Frosted-Glass-Dry-Erase/dp/B004QWAOQ8/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2HG2280JLKCA9&keywords=glass+boards+for+wall&qid=1565414678&s=gateway&sprefix=glass+board%2Caps%2C193&sr=8-4

This is a pretty simple strategy that made a big difference for me:

Get a whiteboard calendar. Draw some checkboxes on each day for the month, correlated to tasks you want to turn into habits, and check them off at the end of each day that you've completed them. I started small with a row of 4 checkboxes at the bottom of each day for a month, and have been adding to them as I think of more tasks I want to be doing (I'm up to 12 now I think).

Start out striving to check boxes off. Doesn't matter when you get them done, just fit it into your day somewhere. Just make sure you're doing some of your tasks each day. Eventually, start pushing yourself to strive for PERFECT days where you check every box. You'll still miss things sometimes, but you can visualize your progress and even when you forget to do something or you're too lazy to do it, you can look at your calendar checkmarks and say "Look at all the things I've successfully completed this month!"

You can make your tasks whatever you want. Some of my examples are exercise, reading, guitar practice, cooking a meal for myself, logging calories for the day, etc. Even small successes build up momentum.

Get one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Noteboard-Ltd-Pocket-Size-Erase-Board-NB35X15/dp/B00EAOJA4Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1462121720&sr=8-1&keywords=foldable+whiteboard

It's a foldable whiteboard that can fit in your pocket, or in your notebook holder. This was one of the best tips I got, and this thing was awesome. Useful for posting the timeline for the next day, sketching out your TMK, or just having a large space to jot some ideas down.

Hello! Yay educator contests!

  1. Bitchin' pink swingline holepunch I require my kids to keep English binders so they can organize handouts and assignments. It also helps them create a portfolio of their work! Of course, there are always moments where I'm running copies and realize afterward that I've forgotten to hole-punch them. Stinks!

  2. I teach 7th and 8th grade English. Middle schoolers, woohoo!

  3. There is nothing better than the feeling I get when I watch a student "get it" with a new skill we're learning. You can watch their whole face light up and then they want to run around and help other students understand as well. This brings me all the warm-and-fuzzies.

  4. This is me including the point that "students are the future."

Buy a calendar dry erase board and write all your assignments, appointments, due dates, etc. on it. Don't just buy a blank dry erase board, get one meant for calendars.

Buy a pack of multi-colored dry erase markers for each subject. That way when you look at the Calendar in a glance you can tell what is due when and what subject otherwise if it is all in black one tends to tune it all out. Keep the markers in a coffee cup right below the dry erase calendar.

Buy color matching notebooks for each subject.

My system: I have the calendar hanging on the wall right in front of my desk.

Microbiology: Green Notebook + Green Marker

Chem: Blue Notebook + Blue Marker

Ethics: Black Notebook + Black Marker

Calculus: Purple Notebook + Purple Marker

You'll find more and more that on Adderall one quite enjoys doing things like organizing fun little systems like that, and they do work very well.

u/xoriginal_usernamex · 6 pointsr/rutgers

Pretty sure they get left open but I could be wrong. Also if you're willing to drop the cash, something like this is pretty awesome to have in your dorm/apartment/house

u/Midnight_Moopflops · 2 pointsr/learnprogramming

I love using the static whiteboard sheets you get in a roll. Great for me as I can't drill holes in my rented bedroom wall.

Hi there,
My product is a whiteboard. I'd like to get some shots that are on pure white background and some lifestyle shots. Take a look at the links below. 1st one is of my product, and 2nd is of a competitor that has better pictures. I like how you have staged some of the product shots, what kind of ideas do you have for my product?


Here is a link to my product https://www.amazon.com/OfficeSpace-Aluminum-Magnetic-SmoothGlide-Surface/dp/B01FIPW7EI/ref=s9_simh_gw_g229_i2_r?_encoding=UTF8&fpl=fresh&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=&pf_rd_r=Z6M0MN2NXPX1PW07T9E4&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=a6aaf593-1ba4-4f4e-bdcc-0febe090b8ed&pf_rd_i=desktop

u/Jennrrrs · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Keep track of your personal documents. I recommend getting a file box like this. Organize your health documents and social security card, car documents, important financial documents, school stuff, etc.

Also, make a calender for your bills and expenses. Write them down every month, checking them off as you pay. I also like to write down my estimated debt to income ratio so I have an idea of how to budget for the month.

These are two things that helped me keep track of so much.

u/onedeeone · 2 pointsr/Pathfinder_RPG

Dunno; the site says it's made of something laminated. But the reviews for Version 1 and Version 2 on Amazon seem pretty favorable. I might try one out myself.

u/Ralmaelvonkzar · 1 pointr/Pathfinder_RPG

There might be cheaper alternatives but I have one of these

http://www.amazon.com/Noteboard-Ltd-Pocket-Size-Erase-Board-NB35X15/dp/B00EAOJA4Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464308917&sr=8-1&keywords=pocket+dry+erase+board

It's a fold up dry erase board with a grid on one side. It's great for student stuff and bringing dnd stuff with you where ever

u/writerlib · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This dry erase/corkboard will help me stay organized and on top of weekly tasks.

Congrats on graduation! I too have had a long struggle completing school due to the reasons you listed above. I just keep telling myself that I have to keep swimming. I guess that would be my biggest life lesson not learned in school. That sometimes things don't always go as easy as you think it should or as easy as it does for other people, but you just have to keep going for what you want. I'll get there eventually.

I was schooled.

u/hrocson · 1 pointr/college

I got a one-week whiteboard and it saved me from forgetting so many things, especially my classes during my first month! Mine also had a strip of cork on the bottom to tack stuff on.


Just looked it up...it was $9 when I bought it and now it's $30. I would've sent you a link otherwise. I'm sure you can find something much cheaper.

EDIT: okay, link

u/nnngey · 1 pointr/GetStudying

I ordered this one because i wanted a really big one to work with, but something like this will do just fine!

u/telepathetic_monkey · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Stapler and staples.

3 Hole puncher

Powerstrip, this is a more subtle item, but once he sees it, he'll realize you went all out.

Pink is the new black.

Thanks for the contest! Will you post before and after pictures??

u/microseconds · 9 pointsr/networking

Start with the underlay.

Got your underlay in position? Awesome. Now add the overlay materials. Use /u/the-packet-thrower's stencils in conjunction with your overlay and underlay tools.

Need to back out a change? Use the standard change management tools prescribed by the underlay/overlay technologies..

u/gandothesly · 1 pointr/FATErpg

I bought one of these: The Notebook Ltd. Noteboard Pocket-Size Dry Erase-Board.

It's great for mapping areas, brainstorming, and other things non gaming uses, too. I'll probably buy one more for gaming, to have two.

u/-AcodeX · 1 pointr/Pathfinder_RPG

Could be true, but the Amazon ratings are solid enough for me to give it a shot at just $13.50 a pop.

u/CleftDub · 3 pointsr/DnD

Apologies but it is my first time posting on DnD and I was being careful about not breaking the advertising rule, even though I don't represent the company or anything. The brand I use is called Magic Whiteboard. They come in big rolls like cellophane.

UK £17.49: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Magic-Whiteboard-MAGICWHITE-x/dp/B001P5UAV8

US $65.99:
https://www.amazon.com/Magic-Whiteboard-Feet-Erase-Sheets/dp/B005MQPL3S

I'm not sure if the sizes of those two products are exactly the same but I believe so.

Well naturally you'd need [a tutu] (http://www.amazon.com/Leg-Avenue-Organza-Tutu-Neon/dp/B004282W2A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376945117&sr=8-1&keywords=pink+tutu), and matching [knee high socks] (http://www.amazon.com/Large-Baseball-Softball-Athletic-All-Sport/dp/B009K7ALK8/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1376945225&sr=8-6&keywords=pink+knee+high+socks).

How about this?

Or if you like them bigger

u/GhostofEnlil · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

If you know for a fact you'll be playing multiplayer, bring a small white dry-erase board with you, plus enough markers for however many people will be playing. The convenience will blow your mind.

u/norsethunders · 6 pointsr/lifehacks

What you really want are these, glass whiteboards. We got a bunch of them recently for our office, they're incredibly resistant to scratching and are basically impervious to staining!

u/TheRubyRedPirate · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Before the Goddamned Marines get all of the credit.

My husband is in the Army. He's actually at basic right now and was hospitalized a couple weeks ago. We're unsure if they will let him continue training or send him home. I'm not sure if I count since I don't know if he will stay in nor not.

This whiteboard would really help me so I can write down due dates for bills, groceries, and things I need to remember.

u/treetrnk · 1 pointr/FATErpg

This is what I do for aspects. I also bought one of these dry erase notebooks for whenever I need to draw out zones.

u/-filly- · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

There is no way you didn't buy a magnetic white board at some point in time.

u/ZBeebs · 3 pointsr/mac

Seeing as this has been a problem since they first started making "talkies", you might consider an old school solution.
