Study Tips

Whether I am in the Library or in my dorm room, I will always try to make either the best study environment possible. First, I MUST be listening to music to be able to focus. Yet, I just can’t listen to any sort of music to study. I have a “Study” playlist on my iPhone that I will always go to in order to help get my mind in the right place. This playlist consists of primarily instrumental tracks, whether it’s jazz, neo-soul, indie-rock or hip-hop. Words tend to distract me so I try to eliminate those as much as possible. I have a lot of Quiet Storm-esque music and other types of ambient music to help get me in the correct frame of mind. I will often listen to music through my Apple headphones or in my room through my Harman Kardon Onyx. Second, I have to be alone. Well, you can still sit by me but I’m about to ignore you completely. When I am in the zone I don’t have much concern for whoever is around me. So I just prefer to be alone when doing productive work to take away chances of outside distractions away. I already deal with enough on my phone and computer as it is. Lastly, I always have to go into studying or whatever assignments I am working on with a plan. If I don’t go in with a plan I will be more likely to procrastinate (which I am amazing at).

After winter break I decided to revamp my room to give it a different type of setting by adding LED Christmas lights hung all around the room. I now love studying and doing productive work in my room now.

There is nothing more satisfying at the end of a semester than hearing Christmas music practically everywhere you go, shopping malls filled with door-buster discounts, food cooking away on the stove by your parents or grandparents, family coming together, snow falling on the ground, and being able to put your feet up! Why do I say such things? Because it means I have made it through another semester of college. Literally, I survived!

Sure I have finals after this coming week, and basically three finals all in one day, though finals are nothing big or something to freak out about. For finals, since I know that  I write notecards for basically each and every one of my previous tests in the semester, I pull out those notecards and review. Along with using notecards, I will also make sure to have a study group with friends in my class and spend time studying. Whenever I make a study group, it is more likely that I will actually get things done in relation to studying or working on a project for the final.

It is very important to make time for studying whether one may like it or not. But think about it: we are just studying for FINALS, not new information. That is the best part, so make sure to show your stuff and prove to your teacher that they taught you new things this semester as well as prove it to yourself. You can do it each semester, you made it to college anyways, so prove it to everyone around you! All things are possible.

Yahoo~~!! The fall semester is almost coming to the end, it’s excited right? I can’t wait to go back home!!!! But before the semester ends, I know I need to have everything done and get a good grade to end my semester beautifully. So 3 more weeks to study hard!!! The best places that I like to study on campus are definitely the second floor of the library, where there are a bunch of individual tables where you can study and do homework quietly. Also, another place I like to go is the computer room in Ryan Hall. One day I went there for color printing and I found this awesome place with very few students — you can use the computers there and study in a quite place.

Sometimes I will also go to a coffee shop nearby because I do need some noise to write essays, especially very long essays — I can’t write them without people around. This is just my habit :)

So, everyone, are you all ready to end this semester? Let’s study hard and play hard during the Christmas break!!!!

So, advising week starts Monday (help me… please…). I couldn’t be happier though because that means I’m one semester away from being a senior!!!! I didn’t get to this spot overnight though, I’ve had many late nights and study parties that I don’t wanna relive. Anywho, when I’m studying, I found that I do my best work in the heat of the night (and yes, I mean all-nighters) Now before you guys judge me, I realize that this isn’t the best practice, but it works for me. All I do is put on my comfortable pajamas, tie up my hair, and get to work. Another thing that helps is that I take rest breaks that last 30 minutes to an hour, and during that time I sleep. I like to play music to keep me focused while I’m working, so that way, I can get my daily jam session in while being productive. While I’m on campus, I study in DSAC because it’s comfy and I can get a good meal.

Studying without the tears.

by Fontbonne University November 4, 2014

Studying can be an adventure, even though some people make it out to be the worst thing in the world. The main thing is knowing how you learn. The person sitting next to you can study a minimal amount and ace the test, but you could be studying for hours. This is the way humans […]
