  • hello! it's seo from tbhstudying and i'm here with an updated tutorial on how i take notes

  • generally. i adjust slightly depending on the subject

  • how lazy I'm feeling but this is just a bare-bones method that i always revert

  • back to. you will need pens, paper, and a ruler. if you want to be extra (and i'm always extra)

  • bring a couple of highlighters and brush pens too. number one: write the header

  • this is where you can be fun and creative by using calligraphy or different colors

  • i've been liking crayola supertips for my headers recently

  • but if you're interested in different brush pens, the pentel fude touch, tombow fudenosuke, and

  • and pilot enso watercolor extra fine brush pens are small brush pens that are good to write titles with.

  • number two: subheaders

  • i usually write it down and put a box around it to make it stand out

  • sometimes, i write it in a different color if i'm feeling jazzy and pizzazzy.

  • no idea where that phrase came out of me

  • but yeah, yeah, yeah, that's cool????

  • if i want a sub sub header, then i'll just underline it

  • number three: the actual notes

  • i use bullet points,

  • dashes for information that is part of the main bullet point, and arrows for information that is part of the dash.

  • i like to start out with the main concept, break it down into understandable parts, then add details through the arrows

  • number four: color use

  • i like sticking to one color, maybe two, never more than three though.

  • too many colors can be distracting and chaotic on the page. i generally

  • use colors on vocab words and important concepts

  • number five: extra extra important things

  • i have a couple of options, either i'll write it in colored ink, highlight it, or draw a box around it

  • i'm more likely to use a highlighter for lecture notes after the lecture is done because I need to write faster in class

  • and i just don't have the time to change out pens during lectures

  • if i'm taking reading notes in the pleasure and peace of my own time

  • i'll probably use colored ink because i'm trying to use up my excess colored pens

  • unrelated but i have used up over 20 pens this year and it's so satisfying to just clear them all out

  • decluttering feels good, babey!!!!

  • number six: making things pretty

  • let's be real. most of you kids came here for this because boy, oh boy

  • do i love making pretty things!

  • first, i'd like to emphasize the fact that functionality is the most important thing

  • however, making things pretty can be a motivational factor in of itself

  • sometimes i'll slap on some washi tape and sometimes i'll slap on a few stickers, add a

  • calligraphy header, use some pastel colors, put boxes around things or maybe even clouds

  • i keep the washi tape and stickers stuff to a minimum though because too much stuff can cause the entire page to look too cluttered

  • but the sky's the limit! go pursue your own dreams of prettiness, my friends!

  • do what makes you feel good about your notes

  • now for a quick rundown of faq type of stuff!

  • some people have asked me how i manage to write and straight lines on blank paper

  • however, i just angle the paper to match my own handwriting angle. you know, when you're writing,

  • normally your handwriting either goes up or down or shifts a little bit

  • tilt the paper to match that angle and you'll write in straight lines. easy as that :)

  • some people have asked me if i rewrite my notes and the answer is no, i

  • personally find rewriting my notes to be a waste of my time

  • however, i do like making study review sheets at the end of every unit

  • i'll leave a link of my tutorial on that in the description if you're interested. for my favorite note-taking supplies

  • it's kind of hard because my favorites tend to shift pretty easily from time to time

  • however, currently i've been really liking the pentel energel in 0.7, muji gel pens in 0.5, tombow mono correction tape

  • this random ruler for my cousin

  • 0.5 mechanical pencils, mildliners, pastel friction highlighters, and the aqua blue and purple uni propus soft color highlighters

  • because i don't like the other three in that set

  • i've also liked using papermate inkjoy gel pens and the bic bu3 gel pens if y'all are interested for more

  • cheaper and more accessible options and for paper, i either use generic college-ruled notebooks and notebook paper,

  • generic blank printer paper or the muji b5 looseleaf paper. hope that helped and thanks for watching!

  • and this was such a throwback to the first video i ever made and NO don't go watch it because it's like

  • 2 years old and it's super cringey

  • hopefully, this was more informative than that

  • but honestly

  • my system hasn't really changed for years and years and years and years and years

  • if you look at my middle school notes, you'll see the same system

  • maybe my handwriting's gotten a little better and my preferred way of stuff headers and headings have definitely changed

  • but other than that the basic bits of it are all the same

  • so, good luck to your own note-taking adventures, and i'll see you in the next video.

  • thanks for watching and bye-bye!!
