I’m sitting here half way through my last week of the semester, drowning in papers and projects. What better way to distract and procrastinate than to write a blog post? Anyway, I wanted to share m studying essentials as well as how I do my best studying. I am not always productive, but any time I really need to buckle down to get my work done this is how I do it.

This picture is a perfect visual of how I am most productive.


First things first, caffeine! If I am going to be sitting down for a while doing homework I need my coffee or tea right next to me. If it is late at night I do hot green tea to make it feel like caffeine!

Next is my planner. I write my entire life in here – nothing would get done without it. This one is from Walmart – should I do a full post on planners and how I use them? Like/ comment on this post if you think so!

I do the majority of my work on my laptop – and this semester I have only papers and projects for my finals so my MacBook comes in super handy. (This is a MacBook Air 13″ ad I love it!!)

My backpack (Vera Bradley) has all my essentials and this one is the perfect size and shape for me! Super comfortable on as well.

My Yeti is literally the best gift ever – I have this bottle and also the tumbler & I use both EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Other tips/necessities:

For me to study or do work I need to be sitting at a table or desk – I feel as though I am much more productive!

Background music is a necessity. I almost always have Spotify playing – should I do a post on my favorite playlists for homework?

Plan out homework time – I try to plan out my homework time and do it all at once. A few times a week I pend a few hours on my work – this works best for me because I set up all my essentials and sit down and get straight to work!

Good luck on all of your finals if you are still in school!
