15 ways to avoid studying

by Staff Writer Anna Brown

1. Refresh your Twitter feed… again. UberFacts is super educational, right? Twitter is definitely the best place to go for quick, brief snippets of information.

2. Search “study tips” on Pinterest. There are all sorts of great organizational tips and suggestions.

3. Bake cookies. You can find a scrumptious cookie recipe while you are on Pinterest.

4. Eat a whole pan of cookies. You need all the energy you can get to study for these finals.

5. Catch up on the latest campus gossip on YikYak and Whisper. There is no telling what juicy news will show up.

6. Watch an entire season of your favorite show on Netflix. Just one more episode….

7. Make a to-do list. There is nothing more satisfying than checking off that last item on a list.

8. Call a loved one. Family and friends back home miss you, right?

9. Exercise. Going for a quick jog might help you remember the information you learned.

10. Go outside. Treat yourself to a walk on the TVA reservation trails in Muscle Shoals.

11. Calculate the lowest grade you can make to pass the class. This can easily be done on Canvas under “grades.”

12. Learn sign language. Sign language is a beautiful way to express yourself without words.

13. Look for a place to park on campus. Stroll the campus parking lots after hours to find that perfect space.

14. Read a book. Reading is a great mental exercise.

15. Take a nap. When all else fails, sleep.
