exciting weekend ahead.

NOT!! It’s going to be a 3-way date between me, my books and the library … I’m already back there as I’m posting this but at least only 2 more days of studying and Monday night it’ll all be over! So excited because I have lots and lots of things to look forward to in March and April :) Blogger-Events, travels, some special d.i.y. ideas that I have planned, online-orders that I am waiting for … 
For now, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend and are doing something other than being a good student and studying :)
 My tips for studying:
know yourself and your habits … I know that if I study at home I will be sidetracked way too easily, that’s why I go to the library.
get an early start … my alarm goes off at 7:30 everyday during studying-weeks. That way I can get at least 3-4 hours in before lunch and it feels so much better to be able to relax for an hour or 2 in the afternoon.
hydrate!! I always have my water bottle with me and try to get a minimum of 3L of just water.
eat right … I have noticed that if I have carbs for lunch or dinner, I am way more tired after than if I have some soup or salad. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies are a great source of vitamins and energy.
set goals … I always set myself certain goals of how many pages I need to read or how many lectures I have to review per day. That way it doesn’t seem so overwhelming and you can definitely fall asleep better at night, knowing you actually got something done.
**I am definitely not an expert in studying and am not an A+ student either. These are just some point I try to keep in mind and that have worked for me in the past :)
Happy weekend my loves!

    Thanks for the tips on studying. I am horrible at studying. Luckily learning in the classroom really sticks in my head and I don't have to study much to get a good grade!
    love the pictures, your march sounds pretty exciting! can't wait to follow you through it all!

    Viel Erfolg! Ich habe Montag auch ein Exam, aber mit guter Vorbereitung ist´s halb so schlimm. Kann also all deine Tipps unterschreiben und vielleicht noch als Zusatz Tipp, ruhig mal einen Tag Pause machen. Dann setzt sich das gelernte besser im Gehirn "ab" ;)
    Liebe Grüße

    Hallo vicky!

    vielen lieben dank für deinen rat zur haarfarbe! ich war frisör und habe mich einfach getraut. oh gott, der unterschied ist einfach so groß und ich brauche noch zeit, mich daran zu gewöhnen. ein paar tränen sind schon geflossen aber ich wollte es so und die farbe sieht schön aus.
    danke, dass du dir die zeit genommen hast und mir geholfen hast!

    der aktuelle post gefällt mir gut, ich bin auch im lernstress und werde mich gleich der lieben steuerlehre widmen… viel erfolg noch beim lernen!

    liebste grüße

    I'll be joining the study party from Wisconsin–10 hour days of books today and tomorrow… ugggggh.

    Helps to know I'm not alone on this venture! =)

    My books are right next to me as I prepare to go study as well. Good luck to you!!

    Keep going! Sounds like you have the right tactics to survive the exams. I'm so like you in that I'm useless at working from home and need to get up early rather than staying up late!

    loads of luck and keep thinking of the fun at the other side of the exams!

    I share your pain. Stuck in the library as well. I find that exercising during the afternon slump & espresso help also. Good luck! Gabriela xx

    great studying tips. I definitely had to know my own habits when I was in college studying too.

    PS. you've inspired me to buy a nice white scarf.
