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!

21 Things You Say To Your Roommate If You Two Are Practically A Married Couple

Until I made this list, I didn't realize how absurdly close my roommate and I were. #sorrynotsorry

Let's be real: you and your roommate have said these things at least one to each other.

1. "Can you turn the light off?"

2. "We probably shouldn't go out for dinner again...right?"

*Complains about not having money* *Spends $8 on Chipotle three times a week*

7. "Does this outfit look stupid?"

The answer is usually yes. No offense.

8. "Can you throw this out for me?"

9. "Can we get ice cream?"

10. "I need coffee."

This text is usually sent when you know your roomie is out running errands... errands you know are near a Starbucks.

11. "Can you tell me what happened?"

12. "Are you asleep?"

There have been times where I couldn't tell if you were asleep or dead... and I had to say this out loud to check if you were alive.

*Cracks up in the middle of nowhere* *Catches a weird stare from your roomie across the room*

10 Tips To Prepare For Your Freshman Year Of College

Tips and tricks for college freshman year.


Obviously, I am not an expert on college life yet, being that I am only a high school senior. Barely hanging on these last couple weeks of school. I have been preparing for my freshman year of college since the start of my senior year. It is an overwhelming, stressful process and it takes a lot of preparation and time to get it all done. I wanted to give some tips and advice on how I started my process and how I have gotten through it. Starting a new chapter can be really scary, especially if you have no idea what you are doing, I am the oldest sibling in my family, and I am the first to go through this crazy process called college. Though I was uncertain exactly what I needed to do and how to do it, I figured it out and here's how I did it.

1. Have a planner

This is going to be your best friend. It helps you keep your life organized (or at least it makes you feel like you do) and assures you that you meet deadlines. Since I can remember I have always used a planner and it helps me so much. I wouldn't know what to do without it. I have all the dates for when things need to be turned in- like housing and such, and also I have up to when classes start next fall. A planner is so helpful and would recommend getting one if you don't have one already.

2. Talk to friends about their experience

This has honestly been one of the top life savors. I have gotten so much advice from my friends that are in college and they give me the inside scoop and what to do and what not to do.

3. Do your research

Research the school, research clubs and activities that you may be interested in. Get familiar with what is on and off campus.

4. Visit the campus

I am lucky enough that I am only an hour and a half away from campus and it doesn't take long to get there so I just go when I feel like it. But visiting and being on campus several times defiantly has made me feel more comfortable and more at ease than I would be if I had not visited at all.

5. Embrace times with friends and family

This is the last summer with you In your house as a full time member. Embrace it! Be with your friends and family as much as you can. You are going to miss them just as much as you are going to miss them.

6. Start doing things on your own

I am already pretty independent but I struggled like starting to make my own dinners because I have been fortunate enough where my parent always took care of dinner. But now they are making me responsible for making my own dinner. Which was a really tough life altering thing for me. It may not seem like it but it was for me. But start doing your own laundry. making your own dinner, getting things yourself etc.

7. Make list

This and my planner have been my saving grace. If I didn't have it there was going to be no progress on the thing called college.

8. Manage your time

This is pretty self explanatory, there is a lot to do during the college process. Be sure not to procrastinate and know when things are due so you can get everything on time.

9. Take summer classes if needed

If you know you are going to be behind in a class, take some summer classes. For example, I am a little behind in math, and I have to take all the way up to college algebra in order to graduate college. Well, I knew I didn't want to take math all four years of college and I knew I was behind. So I am taking some summer courses to not only finish with math earlier but just to be ahead of the game.

10.  Gather everything you need for college!

Make sure you have everything you need for the big day. Set apart some days before move in day to take time and pack whatever you may need so you don't forget anything.
