    Where do you study?

    Hi everyone!

    Happy Thursday :)
    Congrats to all the winners yesterday!

    My question for today is, where do you study? And do you need absolute quiet, white noise, or do you listen to something specifically (like music)?

    It always has fascinated me where people study. If I'm not studying in my apartment (I either study in my bed or at my desk) I will be at my school's library. I study so much better at the library than in my apartment because I am not distracted, and I tend to scroll through facebook less at the library and look at memes because I know people can see what I'm doing!
    Lastly, I'm the type of person that can't study if people are talking because it is distracting to me. So I often study to the sound of my own music, or study music (like violins or piano music), to tune out the people that are being noisy. Listening to music also puts me in a good mood so I've gotten in the habit of listening to music even when there's absolute silence without it.

    I hope you all have a wonderful day!

    Much love,
    Elisa

    Hey!

    I usually study at my desk that is located in my living room of my apartment. My roommate is not too loud and is barely home as he works a lot so that place is quiet enough for me to do my school work.

    Have a great day!!

    Re: Where do you study?

    Great question!!

    I am a little weird in my study habits. For me, I cannot study in a desk or chair for some reason. I like to find a quiet place where I can sit on the floor and spread out all my material. If there is a lot of noise or people around I get distracted and can't really focus. So my study spot was always in the basement of the coop I lived in, in the computer lab on the floor. I also would play classical music quietly.

    Hi lady,

    Now that I am back in school, I find that I prefer to study in my bedroom in the bed, or at the library. I realize there's something psychological about the library that I am more productive there. Maybe it's because most people there are studying or doing something productive and it's very quiet. Too bad the library is closes at 9, I wish they would be open much later or around the clock.

    Howdy ElisaCutiePie,

    I study in my room. It is kind of sucky to study in my room since it is a place that I am comfortable. I find being to comfortable lowers my quality of work. I plan to move soon and the ideal would be able to get a 1 bedroom instead of a studio so that I can be home, but outside of my room.

    Thanks for reading!

    Re: Where do you study?

    I usually study in my room when I'm at home. When I'm studying at school, I sit in the "lounge" with my friends and I balance my time by talking with them and studying for quizzes or exams. When I'm studying on my own, I listen to classical music or soothing music to calm me down. Studying can be very stressful, especially if it's for a midterm exam or final exam. I try to relieve all that stress during studying by hearing calm, soothing music.

    Thanks for the forum,

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hey!

    I study in my car mostly because I work for uber and don't have time or place to sit and study. I also study at school at the library to get things done. I go straight to work from school so when i come home I just fall asleep.

    Have a great day

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hi Elisa,

    I like to make my reading worth the while so I'd like some quiet and/or no distractions. It hurts to be "spinning the wheels" by reading same material over and over without advancement. Hence I'd like to read in a quiet room with minimal movements or distractions. The library sometimes doesn't work for me due to movements and distractions. I hate to regret after my test or exams not being able to optimize my efforts.

    Thanks for reading.

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hey Elisa,

    I usually study on my bed or at starbucks. I like to study in my room because I can be comfortable, but my desk is a mess and needs to be cleaned before fall quarter starts! I find that when I study on my bed, I get way too comfortable and fall asleep, so sitting at a desk is important.

    However, if my family is being too loud, I will go to starbucks to study and use their free Wi-Fi! I would study at my school's library more often, but if I'm not already at school, I don't want to drive there and have to pay for parking. It's easier to save money and study at home or go to starbucks if necessary. However, if I didn't have to pay for parking, I'd definitely study at school more.

    And I like either absolute silence or music without words while I study. I like to play classical music because it helps me focus on the material and not get distracted by lyrics. Music also helps cancel out the noises from my family.

    Thanks for reading!

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hey Elisa,

    I study in my room mostly. When I'm very tired, I can't study in my room because the bed just calls for me until I go sit in it, then I end up laying in it. Sooner or later, the bed gets what it wants, and I pass out on it. Then I wake up at 10 PM and still didn't do the studying and homework I needed to do! In that state of mind, I usually study at a coffee shop or my school's library.

    The library isn't always quiet, but when I'm surrounded by everyone else who is trying so hard and studying (at least thats what it seems like), I get motivated to study hard as well! It is just a great feeling when you actually get things done! I usually start to panic when things need to be done and I still haven't finished it. It is a way better feeling when all your work is done ahead of time, but sometimes you can't help but to procrastinate!

    Thanks for reading, have a great day!

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hi!

    I usually study outside. Although that sounds kind of weird it can actually be very relaxing. Even when it's cold outside I prefer to sit on my porch and study or just work on an assignment. Unfortunately I tend to need complete silence to study because my textbooks tend to be 8 point font and on the tedious side. Hot weather can be bothersome but I feel like cold weather actually helps me focus. I don't live on a busy street but I can usually still hear cars from the highway.

    Hope you have a great day and decide to take a trip outdoors (to study of course)!

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hey Elisa!

    Thanks for the forum,

    I like libraries the best but I also study at the dining room table to be near to my golden retriever but far from the television.

    Have a great day!

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hello, Elisa!

    In order to focus, I cannot be too comfortable! As tempting as it is to study in bed, I cannot retain information when I study in bed! I frequent coffee shops and the public library. I enjoy the chatter of the coffee shop. When I study at the library, I often listen to movie soundtracks.

    Take care!

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hi Elisa,

    I like to study at the library because they have chairs and tables. I find it very uncomfortable studying on my bed because I am always hunched over. It hurts after awhile and I have to shift all the time anyways. However, I did just get a new desk (for free no less) so I will probably be studying in my room more often. I will be comfortable and at home which is even better. Plus, I can control the noise level of the environment much more easily. My room is now the ideal place to study for me now. I am pretty excited to use my desk during the school year.

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hello,

    I like to study in my bed, however based on my past I study better at my desk in my office. Although, I would rather stretch out and get under the blankets while I study I am most productive sitting up straight at my desk. I also listen to music while I study, but I do not have a specific type that I listen to. Sometimes I find myself listening to classical music sometimes and most of the time it is hip hop and r&b. I love studying but I alike to switch up the areas that I study in so that I do not get bored in the area that I am in.

    Re: Where do you study?

    If I'm at home, it's usually at the main computer, and once in a while on my own computer upstairs in my room, but the main computer has a bigger desk so I can have more room to do things, so it's mostly on that one. I prefer it to be quiet, especially so I can think. I've tried listening to music, but I found that I got distracted by it and then procrastinated with listening to different songs and trying to pick which one I wanted to hear next, all while ignoring my homework. It's funny, because my mom can be watching TV in the next room and it doesn't bother me at all.

    Good forum!

    Re: Where do you study?

    Hi Elisa,
    I study in my bedroom. I need complete silence when studying because I focus better when there is nothing distracting me. Although, sometimes it is harder to study when my family is home so similar to you, I will listen to music to try to block out any other noise. I will listen to classical music such as Beethoven, and it definitely helps to block out any other background noise so I can get through my school work. I also find studying at my school library is very effective because it is quiet and peaceful in there. I also love the sense the vibe there that others are studying and working hard on their school work there, it keeps me motivated to keep doing my work!

    I STUDY AT HOME AND IN THE LIBRARY PEACE AND QUIET
