During exam times, my favorite thing to with friends is to study together at a small cafe! Let your friends know that you have an upcoming exam, and most likely they'll agree to the suggestion. When we arrive at the cafe, we purchase a drink and a small snack, talk for 20-30 minutes, and set off to do work. In this way, you have hang out, talk, and study for that upcoming exam~ After a few hours--if you're up for it--go out to eat lunch/dinner together!
Studying at a cafe and then going out to eat afterwards can be quite pricey, but there are many other ways to have fun studying with friends:
- Study and have a short baking session!
- Study and make lunch/dinner for each other!
- Study and watch a short episode of a drama/anime every few hours!
Studying shouldn't be boring, and it shouldn't be all-consuming! It's so important to hang out with your friends and make long-lasting and meaningful relationships in college. These relationships will last a lifetime! Even if you're an introvert like me, be sure to push yourself to spend time with your friends. Studying by yourself may be good during crunch time, but studying with friends can also prevent you from getting distracted. If you see others studying, you're more apt to study as well.
Here's what I did this weekend!
Saturday: Studying at Paris Baguette in K-town with my sister and mutual friend!
My Look! They're matching~ This cup stole my twin :( hahaha~
Sunday: Studying at school and eating pasta afterwards!
Overall, my studying was actually quite productive! While We did get off track a little bit, I still did more studying than if I were by myself. Moreover, I'd rather get distracted with friends than get distracted just surfing the web. :)
What do you guys do to study and hang out with friends?
