This is for all you students out there! I know I said I was taking a hiatus(I'm such a liar), but I desperately need a study break in the library, and this is for my own benefit as well as yours because I am majorly freaking out at the amount of work I have in the next month. So sit back and relax while I guide you through this rough time ⭐️
  1. 1.
    Make a calendar
    This will help you visualize all of the work you have to get done, and helps you feel more organized and on track
  2. 2.
    Make a day-by-day study schedule
    Don't overwhelm yourself by trying to think of all the work you have to do, because that will only stress you out more. Come up with a reasonable schedule and take it day by day, and eventually it will be all over.
  3. 3.
    Don't overload on caffeine
    As tempting as this is, don't. Especially at night. Try and switch to tea after 6pm. Getting a decent night sleep and having coffee in the morning is a good balance
  4. 4.
    If you're not getting any studying done, try going for a walk or changing your environment
  5. 5.
    Seriously this is important
  6. 6.
    Try and eat reasonably
    Yeah, exam period is going to be super stressful and making KD or mr noodles is just a part of this time. While is more than okay during this time, just remember that protein, veggies, and good carbs should also be in your diet
  7. 7.
    Highlighters and post its are your friends
  8. 8.
    Actually do your readings
    Adding your readings into your exams/papers are how you bring them to the next level
  9. 9.
    Don't be afraid to go see your professor if you have a question or if don't understand something
    You're literally paying them for this
  10. 10.
    Find a friend in the class you can study with
    Sometimes talking it out is a great way to learn something
  11. 11.
    Make up fake exam questions and write out answers for them
    If you had a midterm in the class, base the questions off the style of questions asked in the midterm
  12. 12.
    If you have a term paper, make use of the academic resources your school provides
    If you need help with citations and such see if your school as a writing centre to help you. Also if you finish your paper early, maybe take it to your TA to read over and give you some tips
  13. 13.
    Don't be afraid to ask for help
    Professors aren't always scary, deadlines can be flexible. If you're really struggling don't be afraid to talk to your prof to see if there's anything you can work out. Nothing bad ever came from asking. At the end of the day, they want you to succeed/get a good grade in their class too.
  14. 14.
    Try and get your studying done before the day before your exam
    Take the day before to reinforce what you know and not be cramming in new material. Also use this time to work through the concepts you feel the most sketchy about
  15. 15.
    REMEMBER: there's enough time in the day, you just have to make it
  16. 16.
    If you don't have any fun your stress will build up and you'll explode and die, and you can't write exams if you're dead
  17. 17.
    BONUS: if you're like me and can't follow good advice, its 12 hours to your exam, and you have done none of the above, let me let you in on my study secret:
  18. 18.
    I call it a Study Mimosa™
    It's equal parts Red Bull and Orange juice. I know it sounds gross but I promise it will change your life
  19. 19.
    Good luck everyone! 😘
