Hi all,

Since it’s the holidays I have been studying at home for my upcoming university exams. I often found myself getting distracted & going on my phone during my breaks or sometimes falling asleep.
Now I have changed my studying environment, and gone to the library - where I feel like I’m more focused.
The fact that I could have revised/ learnt everything really quickly/ efficiently without distractions at the library before hand is bothering me , especially because I wanted to try my hardest in these exams.
Do other people ever feel like this, or is this something bound to happen if you’ve been studying in one place for too long ? (Sometimes I dislike the library when it’s noisy and prefer home, and vice versa).

Thanks

I did all my studying at the uni library at night as it was open 24/7. They had laptops I could borrow. 24/7 McDs 2 minutes walk from uni so I could get a break. Ace.

If the house is empty, I find it easy to concentrate. If everyone's at home however, it can be more difficult to stop my mind from wandering. At the university's library I find it relatively easy to study as everyone else is doing the same thing. However, at my home town's library (which is council-run and not an academic library), it purely depends on if young children are present. The study space is in the same room as the children's section (I don't know why either), so children cry and scream and run around constantly. I even had a small child keep coming up to me the other day and asking what I was doing about 5 times, before asking if he could have a go [on my laptop]. :dry:
