But studying is a big part of being a college student! I like to make studying fun by going to different buildings on campus. Each place has a different atmosphere.

Today, I’ll be discussing my 5 tips for studying productively at the library!

Welcome back to Blogmas Day 2! It’s currently finals week for me, so I’ve been busy hitting the books and typing away from my laptop. Every December, I look forward to two things: Holiday Peppermint Hersey Kisses (the red and white stripped ones!) and my friend’s annual Secret Santa party. Karyn, one of my besties from back home, does a wonderful job each year coordinating and hosting a gift exchange party. It’s a great way to get friends together and open presents.Ā
