Hey guys! Today’s tag is a bit out of the ordinary in that I’m borrowing it from YouTube and not another blog like I normally do. I found this on studyign’s channel! Sareena is one of my favorite studytubers. Her videos are so well made and she talks about all sorts of school-related things, gives helpful advice, et cetera. I really admire her!
Anyway, enough chit-chat. This tag is geared more toward secondary school students, I think, but it looked like fun so I’m determined to make it work for college too. Hope you enjoy!
P.S. You can find Sareena’s answers here.
How long does it take you to get to school?
Some of my classes are only five minutes away from my dorm, while my furthest is ten to fifteen minutes away. It all depends on whether I feel like strolling or booking it that day.
What do you like to eat for lunch?
If I’m near one of the dining halls, I usually eat whatever the Asian station is serving that day. If I’m studying in the library when lunchtime rolls around, I usually buy something from the café there, which has snacky items such as raw veggies and ranch dressing, pita with cucumber salad and hummus, fruit, yogurt, et cetera.
What classes are you taking?
Age of Dinosaurs; Writing & War; Mystery/Detective Fiction; Gender, Sexuality, & Media; and Magazine Reporting and Writing! You can read more about them here.
What’s your favorite subject?
I always enjoy writing workshops, particularly those focused on creative nonfiction! They’re intense, but well worth the effort.
(This question and the one below proved trickier to answer than I thought they would, because you study specific, not general, subjects in college. But I did my best!)
What’s your least favorite subject?
Probably philosophy? I actually ended up earning a B in the Principles of Reasoning course I took last semester because I worked so hard, but boy was I stressed out about that class. I won’t deny that it challenged and stretched my brain in very good ways, though. I just had a lot of sleepless nights because of it and I wish I hadn’t.
What grade are you in?
15th grade. I’m a junior in college.
What time do you get out of school?
Not the same time every day, that’s for sure! Because that’s not how college works lol. Mondays are my longest days, since I have four classes and my last one gets out at 5:15. On Wednesdays and Fridays I’m done just after two. I only have one class on Tuesdays and Thursdays and it’s over before noon, but that doesn’t mean I have the rest of the day off: It’s time to study and attend writing group meetings and work at my job in the English department!
What do you like to wear to school?
This changes according to the season, but you can usually find me in either jeans or this really soft pair of gray leggings I adore, a T-shirt, and a flannel. Dressing like the lesbian-est English major is hard work, but someone’s got to do it.
How early do you have to wake up for school?
Although my earliest class is at 9:30, I wake up at 7 every day, including weekends, because I find that maintaining a regular sleep schedule is necessary for my mental health! It helps me feel a lot more alert later on and dramatically improves my state of mind.
What’s your favorite item in your backpack?
I love my pencil case! I like to use lots of highlighters and colorful pens when I take notes and it keeps them all in one place so I’m never digging around in the bottom of my backpack for a writing utensil. My parents bought it for me when they went on vacation in Australia because they knew I’d been looking for one. It has a map of the country plus some little pictures of famous landmarks and the native animals.

And as always, feel free to participate whether or not I tagged you. (Or ignore this tag, if you so choose.)
What is your school routine like? (Or, if you’ve already graduated, what was it like? How did it change over time?) I’d really appreciate hearing from all of you, because I’ve always been fascinated by the differences between countries, as well as how each individual person makes their day-to-day routine uniquely their own!
