study

The last two week of the semester are the most stressful. Almost as stressful as Finals week itself. Making sure that you have asked off work or organized your time around work and making sure you have everything you need to get all of your projects done, papers written, and studying done for finals. Successful preparing for finals week can make the actual finals much easier and less stressful. By starting early, it is easier to plan out what needs to be done by when so that you can be as successful and possible and not worry about finishing everything or forgetting something. Some tips include:

  • Making a timeline of when you want to work on the final for each class
  • Set a day or time for each class
  • Set a certain portion of each class final for each day
  • Set study breaks
  • Plan in distraction time (we all need a break and sometimes a 30-minute nap can really save you)
  • Get good snacks and drinks when you start studying (sometimes a drink run can turn into too long of a distraction)
  • Set a solid playlist to help you stay focused

Whatever you do, you are going to be successful if you put your mind to it. Good luck and know you are in the home stretch!

Xoxo,

How do I prepare for it? Well, I’ll be honest, I am already overwhelmed with projects and it has been weighing on me like a ball and chain since Spring Break. In short, I’m so burnt out I don’t really care. However, that doesn’t mean I will forget about it.
To me, Finals are the same as regular tests and quizzes; they’re just bigger. So, start off by studying as if it’s just for a quiz. Don’t stress about it, because that will only cloud your mind and make you forget what you need.

Mid-Terms. The exams that we dread almost as much as Finals. When it comes to study, there are a few things that could be done in order to boost your concentration and your retention of he content that you are trying to memorize.

Tips:

  1. If you absolutely need background noise of some kind, try either instrumental music or try ambient noise (if your surroundings don’t currently have this: i.e. birds chirping, rain & thunder storms, etc.). Reason being that when you are listening to either instrumental music or ambient noise, you are more inclined to not become distracted. If your music has lyrics: you will more often than not sing along. Or at the very least hum the tune.
  2. If you need absolute silence: This maybe the most obvious, but go to a location that doesn’t have a lot of people making an abundance of noise.  I.e. Libraries, Griffin’s Nest (provided that there is no event/meeting going on up there)
  3. Finally, go outside: Enjoy the weather & soak up the sun. If there are no events going on, the Golden Meadow is a great place to be!

Until next time guys, stay classy!

Hey Y’all!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Do you like music? I do. I listen to it for fun, I listen to it to help me study, and I listen to it to daydream about my stories. “Why should I care?” you ask? Well, you probably shouldn’t. I just wanted to share some music with you.

Today, I’ll just share my “Study” playlist. It mostly consists of instrumentals from the Celtic, Fantasy, Asian, and Spooky genres. All of them have helped me focus on my schoolwork and put me in a relaxed, blissful state.

Here’s the list; I have them arranged by genre, and they all range from an hour to three hours long:
Fantasy/Celtic –





Spooky –


Asian –


 

Here’s a bonus! A Valentine bonus. What? Did ya really think I was just going to leave y’all with just study music on the day of love?! Here are my personal favorites:








I hope you cherish one another today. Bye bye!

This will be my third semester here at Fontbonne, but it seems like it was just yesterday I was brand new. My first impression of Fontbonne was how easy the transfer process was.  I continue to love the small, accessible size of the campus, and the staff and advisers that are always extremely helpful and […]

I have multiple playlists. Anything from Frank Sinatra to System of a Down. Some of my playlists […]
