Pretti Please’s Final Exam Essentials!

This post brought to you by BIC 4-Color pen. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hello, Pretties!

With final exams coming up at USC, I thought it would be a great idea to post about what gives my studying a boost during the most high-stress week of the year!  If you’re looking for fun, easy, and creative ways to stay on task – continue reading! 🙂

1. Study smart with the BIC® 4-Color™ Pen!
Use your pen to your advantage!  The BIC® 4-Color™ Pen assists with underlining, making notes, and categorizing your not-so-interesting readings.  You can also use it to differentiate sections on your study guides, making studying easier.  The “4 Inseparable Colors in 1 Pen” makes it much easier to manipulate text (and, the reading looks a whole lot prettier with some color splashed, am I right?).

I bought mine at Amazon, but you can also find it at Staples.  BIC’s campaign includes some pretty entertaining personalities for each of the 4 colors, which you can read about on their Twitter and Facebook pages!  I would like to think that I am most like the Red, which BIC describes below:

Blue: Blue likes himself. And with good reason: he knows that he’s important. Blue cheese, blue skies, blue jeans, blue moon; he’s everywhere! To prove his point, look at the names of his family members: Navy Blue, Oxford Blue, Royal Blue…Ever heard of “royal yellow”? Exactly. Let’s admit it… Blue is the boss.

Green: Green is the jealous type…wouldn’t you be if your Red, Blue, and Black counterparts were used [way] more often than you? He’s a foodie. Such a foodie that he chronicles each of his daily meals on his social media profile. Because if you eat a meal and don’t take a picture of it, did it really even happen? Green has a soft side too. For example, last summer he cooked a huge cat nip cake for his beloved cat, Mr. Furrybottom. Oh, and Green still sucks his thumb. But according to him, that’s an old trick to prevent him from snoring.

Black: He just doesn’t understand…why does it always have to be about Blue? He is not as fit as Blue although he likes to think that he’s just as handsome as he is – in a different way though. (Muscles are so last season). He secretly dreams of becoming the Undisputed Master of the World but hasn’t yet come up with a clear plan for this. And before we forget (although he doesn’t like to talk about it), his natural hair color is blond.

“Red: Red likes it when things are correct. When matches are parallel and books are well aligned on a shelf. His favorite moment of the day? When it is 11:11 sharp on his digital watch. His passion in life? He has many: spelling, grammar, conjugation, calculation. And a bit of syntax on the weekend. Want to make him happy? Give him some mistakes to correct. He even makes mistakes on purpose sometimes, just for the pleasure of correcting them.”

Call me a perfectionist, but it’s almost too easy to get study documents looking juuust right during finals when you are using the BIC® 4-Color™ Pen!  Here are some fun videos about the BIC® 4-Color™ Pen and all the colors’ personalities:

2. Make sure you use your stationary to your advantage.

Don’t bore yourself with plain notebooks.  I don’t know why, but when I have nice stationery, studying studying looks a whole lot more attractive.  I usually search the dollar bins at craft stores for folders, notebooks, and paper pads.  Keeping my notes organized in separate folders is always helpful!

3. Use noise-cancelling software.
A few months ago, I found an app that plays “brown noise,” and it has seriously changed the way that I study!  I used to get distracted by every little noise, which usually forced me to search for a super quiet, private study room.  Well, a super quiet, private study room is hard to come by in college!  Finding a quiet space to study can be especially difficult if you live on campus, so using a noise-cancelling app is crucial for maintainging your focus while studying.

 

Thanks for reading, Pretties!  If you have any of your own study tips to share, please post them in the comments and I will make sure to check them out!
