    Hey,
    so I am having trouble with one of my subjects, Science and it's because nothing sticks in my head. Like I can't imagine sh*t and whenever I try and revise on a topic I never know what i'm doing so i'll just be sticking flashcards on a wall, writing stuff on a whiteboard taking a pic with my phone and rubbing it off to go onto the next topic, copying out of a textbook or a revision website, reading up on it or even just making notes is hard because it never sticks in my brain. Whenever i've been told to revise for assessments it has never stuck in there either. Then I just kind of get bored and can't be asked with it and take long breaks which turn out to be scrapping my revision and doing something else. Any tips?

    If you take too many breaks, the universe will start to tear itself apart - the very fabric of space time itself will turn in on itself due to dark energy. Everyone will die instantaneously, in a huge flash of light as the earth is sucked up into a supermassive black hole in andromeda. Everything that ever did exist, and everything that may have existed, is destroyed. Forever.

    Being serious, take breaks when you actually need them. Whatever you do, don't keep working when you are just not able to take on anything - it will be time wasted and you would have been better off having a break so you can learn efficiently next time. But try and find ways to really engage with it, perhaps by writing down every key point you know about the topic.
