5 Types Of 'Studiers' During Finals Season

5 Types Of 'Studiers' During Finals Season

Aka, 5 types of college students you see the most during finals season.


With finals and everything else that goes on during this stressful time of year, I thought that writing this article instead of studying was the most necessary thing to do. If you are one of these people, congratulations. You're not alone. We're all drowning together so let's just embrace it.

1. The Procrastinators

These poor people really cannot get what they want to do. It is so hard for them to focus on their school work for they might have A.D.D but that is none of my business. Everything they attempt to do to get themselves to diligently work just isn't cutting it. They are usually doing everything else BUT studying/getting work done. God Bless these people.

2. The Ones Who Lay Out All of Their Things In Front Of Them As They Scroll On Their Phone

I see these types of studiers the most in public and it is so funny to me. On Twitter, this has been floating around and I love seeing it because it is so true. People will literally organize their belongings right in front of them, open their textbooks, planners, etc. and will literally scroll on their phone for hours! It is so hilarious to me that this is so common everywhere I go in my college town, I love people haha.

3. The Ones Who Take Their Best Friend With Them To The Library

The studiers who can't be alone never get anything done either. If you do, then hats off to you and your bestie but most pairs of friends I see in public studying together are always talking. Although, right now you shouldn't be alone at the library in the late hours of the night because of all of the sex trafficking that is apparently going on right now. This is perfectly fine, no hate whatsoever to those who (try to) study with their best friend!

4. The Campers

Ah, the campers. The ones who usually bring snacks, blankets, and everything else they need to get their work done. One time at the library I overheard this girl on the phone with her mom saying she is going to pull an all-nighter at the library to finish her essay that was due the very next morning! I was simply shook and respect people who are that dedicated. Don't get me wrong, I am FULLY dedicated, but I like to space out my work, so I don't end up having to do this. I NEED a full nights rest so you will never catch me out of my house after midnight.

5.  The Ones Who Actually Get Stuff Done

Hats off to these students because these are the ones who can zone themselves into what they're doing with no distractions. I have a friend who can grind on the homework like no ones watching and she will forget where she is when she ate last, and what time of day it is because of how hard she works at getting her assignments done. I wish I had this characteristic, but sadly, I too struggle at staying focused for long periods of time.

After reading, I hope you college kids or anyone else who is currently going to any type of school can relate to any of these types of "studiers." I personally identify closest to the campers. Whenever I go to a coffee shop or the library, I plan on staying there all day until I get everything I need to done. I do this in order to motivate myself to finish my homework so I can go home and watch YouTube videos snuggled up in my warm bed. It actually works, so if you need any tips on how to motivate yourself academically, hit me up! Have a blessed week Odyssey readers, you guys rock!

It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate

Not the horror story kind of roommate, but the one that was truly awesome.

Nostalgic feelings have recently caused me to reflect back on my freshman year of college. No other year of my life has been filled with more ups and downs, and highs and lows, than freshman year. Throughout all of the madness, one factor remained constant: my roommate. It is time to thank her for everything. These are only a few of the many reasons to do so, and this goes for roommates everywhere.

You have been through all the college "firsts" together.

If you think about it, your roommate was there through all of your first college experiences. The first day of orientation, wishing you luck on the first days of classes, the first night out, etc. That is something that can never be changed. You will always look back and think, "I remember my first day of college with ____."

You were even each other's first real college friend.

You were even each other's first real college friend.

Months before move-in day, you were already planning out what freshman year would be like. Whether you previously knew each other, met on Facebook, or arranged to meet in person before making any decisions, you made your first real college friend during that process.

The transition from high school to college is not easy, but somehow you made it out on the other side.

It is no secret that transitioning from high school to college is difficult. No matter how excited you were to get away from home, reality hit at some point. Although some people are better at adjusting than others, at the times when you were not, your roommate was there to listen. You helped each other out, and made it through together.

Late night talks were never more real.

Remember the first week when we stayed up talking until 2:00 a.m. every night? Late night talks will never be more real than they were freshman year. There was so much to plan for, figure out, and hope for. Your roommate talked, listened, laughed, and cried right there with you until one of you stopped responding because sleep took over.

You saw each other at your absolute lowest.

It was difficult being away from home. It hurt watching relationships end and losing touch with your hometown friends. It was stressful trying to get in the swing of college level classes. Despite all of the above, your roommate saw, listened, and strengthened you.

...but you also saw each other during your highest highs.

After seeing each other during the lows, seeing each other during the highs was such a great feeling. Getting involved on campus, making new friends, and succeeding in classes are only a few of the many ways you have watched each other grow.

There was so much time to bond before the stresses of college would later take over.

Freshman year was not "easy," but looking back on it, it was more manageable than you thought at the time. College only gets busier the more the years go on, which means less free time. Freshman year you went to lunch, dinner, the gym, class, events, and everything else possible together. You had the chance to be each other's go-to before it got tough.

No matter what, you always bounced back to being inseparable.

Phases of not talking or seeing each other because of business and stress would come and go. Even though you physically grew apart, you did not grow apart as friends. When one of you was in a funk, as soon as it was over, you bounced right back. You and your freshman roommate were inseparable.

The "remember that one time, freshman year..." stories never end.

Looking back on freshman year together is one of my favorite times. There are so many stories you have made, which at the time seemed so small, that bring the biggest laughs today. You will always have those stories to share together.

The unspoken rule that no matter how far apart you grow, you are always there for each other.

It is sad to look back and realize everything that has changed since your freshman year days. You started college with a clean slate, and all you really had was each other. Even though you went separate ways, there is an unspoken rule that you are still always there for each other.

Your old dorm room is now filled with two freshmen trying to make it through their first year. They will never know all the memories that you made in that room, and how it used to be your home. You can only hope that they will have the relationship you had together to reflect on in the years to come.
