Mastering the Art of “Librarying”

28 Mar

So, you have an exam coming up that you have yet to study for.

Because every time you try to study, this happens:

Or, your roommates are home and this happens:

What you need is a quiet space where you can focus and think in peace.

Enter: the library.

But when you walk in, you realize you’ve never been to the library before.

Where do you go? What do you do?

How does one master the art of “librarying”?

First step, come prepared with lots of food. Because after hours of studying, you’re going to get hungry.

You’re also going to want to stock up on some caffeinated drinks.

The library can get a little cold sometimes.

So, bring a light jacket or blanket to keep warm.

Studying alone?  Rent an individual study room for up to 6 hours at the front desk.

This allows you to cry in private when the stress gets to be too much.

With a group?  Reserve a group study room online in 2 hour intervals.

Then, when you have a stress induced breakdown, you’ll have someone there to comfort you.

If you’re going to be using a laptop, don’t bother lugging one around,  just check out a Mac at the front desk for 4 hours.

Pulling an all nighter?  4 hours isn’t going to cut it.  Rent a PC netbook for 72 hours instead.

Now, the challenge is to stay focused. Cut out all distractions (i.e. your phone).

It’s hard, but you’ll be so much more productive if you’re not Tweeting, Instagraming, and texting constantly. So come on, let the phone go and give it up.

Lock it up in the front desk library charging stations, then walk away.

The library is a public place, germs are everywhere! Be sure to use these guys frequently.
