How to survive the study hall when you have nothing to study
Study rooms can be a real savior when you find yourself desperately trying to prepare for your next exam after a night of hanging out with your friends. Or when you realized that the final job you’ve been avoiding is due the next period. Of course, like anything else, the study room has a downside. What do you do when you have nothing to study? When you are very bored and the teacher keeps giving you the evil eye, and it seems like she is about to kick you out if you pass one more note or tell one more joke to your neighbor.
Fortunately, a trip to the office is not your final destination. There are tons of things you can do to keep yourself busy in the study room that don’t involve homework. Yes, believe it or not, you can find entertainment at your school and it doesn’t even involve breaking the rules.
1. If you like to read, you can always take one of your favorite novels with you and escape throughout the entire period, from worldly boredom to a fascinating story with exciting characters. You could even take a short trip to your school library and discover something new from your selection of books.
2. Or if the games suit your wishes, just bring your laptop. There is an almost unlimited variety of games that you can download online for free. Options include cooking games, speed games, house games, and many more popular games.
3. Also as an incentive to keep your grades up, your school may offer downtown passes to students with high GPAs. So if you want to escape the boredom of sitting in a study room, there are plenty of options available with one pass. You could go out for lunch with a group of friends, do some light shopping, or even go for a walk to get some fresh air.
Prepare before going to a study hall if you know ahead of time that you don’t have to do any school work that needs to be done. Bring your laptop, with an extra battery of course, a good book, or your downtown pass if you have one. This will make the study room much more enjoyable for you and your study room supervisor too!
