Studying Is Beginning To Change

As tests roll around, mostly everyone is staying up all night and studying until they can’t stay awake. If you’re like me, you’re trying to get organized and get your thoughts together and information together. As I was studying for a previous exam, I noticed an email in my WTClass email. A classmate of mine had sent all of us information about this new website/app that made notecards very easy on the computer and you could study anywhere you wanted with the free app on your phone. Desperate for something new, I decided why not try it. And now I LOVE it! It’s called StudyBlue and here are some benefits I found from it:

1) It’s a lot faster to type than to write out words on note cards. On StudyBlue, you can easily make lots of notecards very quickly.

2) After you type the term on the notecard, StudyBlue pulls up any card throughout the website with the same name. It’s easy to share and find more information about it.

3) You can post pictures along with the notecard. As a Biology major, we have lots of diagrams and pictures so it’s easy to put on a notecard.

4) When you sign up online, it asks you what school you attend. After you put in West Texas A&M University, you can join your class if other classmates are on it and share notecards! If it doesn’t have your class on there, make your own and spread the news!!!

5) You can take it on the go with you and study wherever you are!

6) It makes quizzes and review sheets for you, so if you want to test your knowledge take a quiz! You can also print whatever you want from it so it’s super easy.

As you can see, I really love this new study tool! I’m excited to start using it and am trying to get the word out to other classmates. Technology has taken over!

The Week After Homecoming Week!

Last week was homecoming week which meant everyone (for the most part) was EXTREMELY BUSY! The campus had lots of events including the Pigskin Revue (pep rally), and RHA had events like midnight pancakes and the tractor pull, but the hardest part about homecoming is the week after.

Midterms are also around this time so coming back from a crazy week can be somewhat difficult and if you’re like me you had an exam the Friday of homecoming week and the Monday after. It’s coming back down to reality after all the fun of the weekend. Realizing in the midst of all the fun, that school still needs to be taken care of.

Being able to manage your time during weeks like that are very important! I studied every chance I had and fortunately got As on both exams so I made it through midterms and homecoming! YAY! We are about halfway through the semester so getting off track now wouldn’t be good for anyone!
