Fun Places To Study When The Studying Isn't So Fun

Fun Places To Study When The Studying Isn't So Fun

I think one of the biggest differences between college and high school is that there is always something you could be doing. The work is endless, but as long as I have a good cup of coffee and a quiet corner then I'm able to get so much work done. Here are some fun places to study.

1. Coffee Shops

I can testify that most of my time in the past 5 years has been spent at a coffee shop. Not only do they feed my caffeine addiction, but they create a comforting atmosphere where you can spread out all of your homework and really focus.

2. Bookstores

I have found that a lot of people like to go to coffee shops. Sometimes it's refreshing to run into people you know, but at other times I need no distractions or I may never get anything done. I think studying at bookstores is a good solution to having no distractions. Just the other day I went to Barnes and Noble for three hours and got so much done with no interruptions. Also, if you're a book nerd like me, you can reward yourself for your hard work by going to look at books after you're done studying or if you need to take a brief break.


Another great place to study with no distractions is the library. Libraries have a no speaking policy, which makes it easy to focus. Some libraries have rooms that you can reserve. During finals, I like to reserve a room where I can go and study with a few people. A small space to study allows you to consult with your peers on something you're unsure about, but it is still a quiet and relaxing atmosphere.


If it's a nice day and you don't want to spend all of your time inside studying, take your homework outside with you. I like to take my hammock and work on homework. A hammock is a great place to study and it is a great place to take a power nap if you need to take a small break from work!

No matter what atmosphere you prefer, pick a study place that provides a relaxing atmosphere where you can be the most productive with no distractions. Also, it is a good idea to figure out what helps you study. At times, I work best when I'm alone in a quiet atmosphere. Then other times, I like to have two or three friends who are just as dedicated to working as I am. It's good to have a couple of people to motivate you to get things done and who will help you if you're confusing about something. So next time you need to study or do homework, pick a fun and helpful study place!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
