Are you in a dreary class? Does the professor’s voice lull you into sleep? Don’t let these circumstances hinder you from passing your exams or quizzes! Remember, you are who you choose to be and if you choose to give up on your notes then what would that say about you? That being said, here are 8 ways to improve your otherwise dull notes!

Find the perfect pen.

I don’t know about you but sometimes I give up writing in class altogether because my pen doesn’t feel right. Find a pen that suits you and I promise you will want to write forever with it.


Get colorful.

What are pastel highlighters for if we don’t use them correctly? Yes, they’re meant to ‘highlight’ the important parts but you can also use them to highlight different topic headers. Then your whole notebook becomes colorful!


Buy cute and functional notebooks.

Simply lined notebooks are great but you could always find something better! There are notebooks slash planners available at your favorite bookstores and even online. They’re better because then your planner and notebook are in the same place. You can also choose notebooks that are lined, in grids or blank.


Try bullet journaling.

For simpler yet beautiful looking notes, try your hand at bullet journaling. It experiments on different styles of note taking. You can write headers by calligraphy or draw cute banners around them. There are no rules to bullet journaling!
