My After-School Study Routine


Usually I leave class at around 1pm , so after that I usually quickly grab something to lunch Sometimes I pack my lunch before I leave the house and eat at college and other times I go back home and cook something light before I head out Today I went back home and just prepared a very quick salad while checking my bullet journal I keep a list with all of my tests and reading materials in my bullet journal so I tried to update it as frequently as I can just to understand how productive I was throughout the day and Whether I’m going to be able to tackle all the items in my to-do list before the end of the day Either it’s a library or at home my schoolwork mainly consists of reading, so that’s always my big priority for the day I open the reading materials on margin notes, which I’ve talked to you about before import the documents and then start highlighting the most relevant parts I try to use different colors as much either as a color code for differently themed information or just separate parts of the text so I can easily divide sentences and arguments a Good way to work thoroughly on a document It’s just writing down your opinions on the margins that doesn’t mean you necessarily need to describe that opinion in class But the fact that you access your reading in a critical instead of a passive way means you will be able to interpret and analyze the readings and Therefore be more prepared to comment on them I will be doing a reading skills video that will be uploaded next week so stay on the lookout for that My readings always take most of my time so I try to compensate with a bit of planning and other minor tasks Usually I’ll read four blocks of one hour and then get up and do a few small tasks around the house Or in this case reply to some emails check on my calendar and browse through my social media after finishing my first documents I will pull up one note increase the page with the name of the document and then write some quick notes referring to what I’ve just read It actually works as a guideline for me To have in class and understand the facts and main arguments of the text or case I just read it’s also very helpful to have during exams or while writing my final papers Since most of the readings get easily forgotten and going through these outlines is a quick way to remember the most important key points If I’m able to finish my readings I then either try to read materials for the next week just to get a head start or go back to past seminars and notes and do more thorough analysis of what I’ve read I Try to have just small study sessions for this so sometimes I grab a few textbooks with extra non-mandatory materials and try to complete and organize information I have adding a few bits and pieces to my old notes and organize them better for future reference I also keep a separate section in my OneNote notebook where I brainstorm ideas topics and themes for my final evaluation papers so I try to get a head start as soon as I can and Structure my work in the neatest way. I can before the deadline is approaching For this I usually create my own deadlines my calendar or bullet journal Usually I save a few days for brainstorming and topic researching Then a few more days to create the first draft in bullet form and if I can another full week for a full on first Draft I then do two sessions of revising and referencing before I turn the paper I’m also participating in a mood contest this year so that requires a bit of extra work every day for me that Consists on re-reading at least a few pages of the problem and do some research on interpretation for international treaties and conventions This is usually the last thing I do on a typical day Except if there’s a big deadline coming up which requires a different year key since some tests can be prioritized over the others After my studies over I then grab my bullet journal open my calendar and plan for the day head Having an account what I’ve done during that day Being consistent with your planning and the way you organize even the smallest Tasks is just a good way to make sure you keep a good pace when reading and studying and still keeping track of other events So this is all for today’s video. I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and I’ll see you next week. Bye

    Thanks for the video! My biggest problem is time management. It feels like I am always studying and have no time for entertainment or going out with friends. How long does it take you to study daily? Do you have any off days where you do not study at all?
