My exams and quizzes don’t care for labels. They don’t care which books I used to learn the first three chapters of Calculus - they test me to see if I know the concepts. They don’t care what kind of pencils I use to finish an exam as long as everything is legible and correct. Substance over style when it comes to academics - always. But as a young and impressionable college student, I admit it was easy to get distracted by the aesthetic of 'study culture' instead of focusing on what seems like the obvious - the subjects at hand. I’ve fallen for the whole ‘buy some study snacks, get fancy stationery, and watch endless study routines on YouTube” kind of thing. It didn’t work for me. My study strategies now consist of 'big' habits (for my daily life and beyond) and micro habits (just for my academic/work-life). One of my 'big' habits is meditation. Meditation helps me be a more engaged and present student, employee, and daughter to aging parents. My favorite academic 'micro' habit is picking apart course syllabi. At the beginning of each semester, I use a combination of Trello, OneNote, and Stickies on my computer to plan out my work deadline by deadline. I also use written planners to give myself the satisfaction of crossing things off my checklist manually. Adding a tiny bit of personal flair to my study routine is something I can support, but discipline, organization, and consistency help me get my results. After all, when investing so much in a college education, doing well is a sign that you value your time and money. It shows that you love yourself enough to find time-saving and efficient ways to do well and advance onto the next stage of your life.
