Today, I'm gonna show you some great life hacks for going back to school.
If you've been given a new timetable and you're struggling to learn it, you can take a photo of it on your phone and set it as your lock screen picture and your wallpaper. This way you'll always have it at hand, and looking at it regularly will help you to learn it.
If you're packing gym shoes in your bag for sports lessons, you can use tumble-dryer laundry sheets to keep them smelling fresh. Just tuck one in each shoe to help fight those nasty odors. If you haven't got dryer sheets, you can try using a couple of tea bags instead.
If your zip breaks when you're doing up your bag, you can use a paper clip to replace it. Just thread it through for an instant DIY handle. You might also find this useful for a pencil case or even a jacket.
如果你的拉鍊在你拉上袋子時壞了，你可以利用迴紋針取代。只要穿過去來當一個快速方便的 DIY 拉環就行了。你可能還會發現這在鉛筆盒或甚至夾克上都很實用。
If you like using a highlighter pen to pick out important bits of information on a document, you can customize your marker by touching the tips together from different color pens like this. I'm using blue, yellow, and pink to make my own rainbow highlighter. You can try different color combinations, and they're great fun to use. You can decontaminate the nib by scribbling on some paper to get back the base color.
If you've got some spare time, you can take a plain piece of paper and use a ruler to draw a grid on it for a game of Snakes and Ladders. Add some numbering and the all-important details. And you can use a pencil for a dice. It needs to be a hexagonal pencil like this, not a round one. Use a pen to number each side of the pencil one to six. I'm doing mine at this end of the pencil, but if you wanted to, you could do it at this end—so you can remove the evidence of secret game playing by sharpening your pencil. Pretty sneaky, huh? Give it a roll, and you're ready to start. For counters, you can take a paper clip and open it up like this.
如果你有些空閒時間，你可以拿一張白紙，然後用尺在上面畫格子玩「蛇和梯子」遊戲。加上一些編號，還有很重要的細節。你可以用鉛筆當骰子。那得是支像這樣的六角鉛筆，而不是一支圓的鉛筆。用筆在鉛筆每邊標上數字 1 到 6。我是在鉛筆這端做標記，不過如果你想要，你可以在這端寫數字－－這樣你就可以靠削鉛筆來消除偷玩遊戲的證據了。滿狡猾的，對吧？轉一下，你就可以開始囉。棋子的部分，你可以拿迴紋針然後像這樣打開。
If you've got other ideas for simple games you can make at school, maybe using the pencil dice, you can let me know in the comments below.
