    So I get the question: how do I productively study? How do I focus?

    So I am going to share something I do.

    Today happens to be a library day so here is my schedule for my lib time at noon.

    I work for 45 mins and take a 15 minute break.

    I write down goals for each 45 minutes

    After the 45 minutes, I assess where I am and revise the timeline (never getting disappointed or anything!)

    This makes things less overwhelming and boosts my own productivity. I can see tangible gains and have charted progress at the end of the study day.

    I’ve used this all through undergrad, my masters, and now my PhD! Hope this is helpful to some of you looking for techniques!

    "[The] women that I portray in my art are all around, but society sees them as almost invisible.”

    This is how David James, the Trinidadian mind behind BBW Art, explains his work. The portfolio is a stunning showcase of the beauty and versatility of curvy women.

    Love this!!
