Study essentials

I decided to pick my top 5 for this, so here goes:

  1. Good tunes. I need my music to concentrate while studying or writing. Usually, I use my Spotify and listen to musicals or more instrumental music.
  2. Coffee and a snack. You need brain food to study, and it provides a nice break for when you’ve been reading international political theory for a few hours.
  3. Good pens! I always bring a variety of highlighters and pens, so my notes look all pretty when I’m rewriting them, and it’s super useful for studying later on.
  4. Textbooks and notebooks. Obviously, you need the materials you’re going to be studying, and I prefer to write things out by hand.
  5. An extra layer. It always seems to be cold in the school libraries, so I usually have an extra layer. Plus, it makes you feel super cozy.
