Get Ready For Finals: Study Essentials

by - November 14, 2016

Happy Monday! It is finally getting chilly here in Georgia and I am so happy! I love fall and winter so much, so the fact that I have to wear a jacket when I'm outside makes me smile. Here come the boots and sweaters! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week? I'm so excited and just have to get through this crazy busy week.

When I get back from Thanksgiving break, I have a week left of classes and then finals start. The end of the semester is so soon and it is exciting, but scary at the same time. I have a year left of college. Where did the time go? Anyway, today I am sharing my study essentials with you. Whether I study in my room, the library, or even Starbucks... these are items that I have with me every time a study session begins.

This is pretty much understood, but it is still essential. In college, the majority of your work will probably be done on a laptop. I love my MacBook Pro!

My planner is my life. I write down assignments, meetings I have that day, things I need to get done. I even remind myself to do my laundry. I take this with me and once I finish studying that subject or complete the assignment, I'll highlight it. 

Pens, Pencils, Highlighters, etc.
Even though you might be working on your laptop, it is important to have some paper and writing utensils. You never know when you might just want to jot something down. Also, you might decide you want to make flashcards (flashcards are my life).

A Snack, Water, and Tea/Coffee
I always have a snack and water with me. I love clementines and Harvest Snaps, which I tried because they were in my Voxbox that I received from Influenster. These are so good and probably a little better than a bag of chips. I also ALWAYS have my water bottle with me and sometimes, I have coffee or tea. 

Phone, Headphones, Charger
While study sessions mean I'm not really on my phone, I have to have my phone. I'll plug my headphones into it and listen to music while I study. I also always have the charger with me. I have a portable charger which is so handy! 

What are your study essentials? Let me know in a comment below! I'd love to add to my list of essentials. Let's get through this week because next week, Thanksgiving will be here! 

Happy studying!
