We get it—you don’t want to miss out on spending time with
that classroom cutie. But you also know you should never sacrifice your grades
for a guy. Solve your dilemma the smart way with a study date. These date prep
tips will get you chic and study-ready while trivia games keep you and your study buddy chatting
and laughing all the way to an A+.
Be prepared to date
You’ll want a laid-back outfit to study in but you’ll also
want to look good for your date. Itchy, tight or uncomfortable clothes can
cause a distraction. For an outfit that’s totally study-cute, put on a pair of
your comfiest jeans, a simple tank and a soft sweater. Keep makeup light and
grab some gloss. Finish your look with a sophisticated bun and you’re done. Perfect!
Gather your materials
Gather all of your materials ahead of time. Start by making
a list. Think about pens and pencils,
highlighters, note cards, paper, text books and whatever else you might need.
Get organized by stacking papers and books into a pile and putting writing
utensils into a pencil holder or plastic cup. Make sure you grabbed a pen and
paper for him too and he’ll be sure to note your thoughtfulness.
Pick a spot
Pick a comfy, quiet place with plenty of space to spread out
your books. Check for outlets if you’ll be working on a laptop. And make sure
it’s well lit so you can keep an eye on your work and on your date. A café, library or your kitchen table is a great
place to get work done.
If your location allows it, make sure you pack a snack.
Studying is no fun if you’re hungry and we all know that boys love food. Chips
and salsa, cheese and crackers, sandwiches and popcorn are all healthy and
Keep it fun and
active with a game
Grab a piece of paper and draw four bases. One of you starts
as pitcher and the other gets batter. The
pitcher asks a question and if answered correctly, the batter gets a base. If
the batter gets it wrong, ask another, but three strikes and you’re out. If the batter makes it home, that’s one
point. Switch positions and play ball!
Take turns quizzing each other with hangman. A face, body,
two arms and two legs means six chances to answer wrong before that turn is
over. Every correct answer is ten points. Add them up at the end and see who
wins. Keep track of the questions the
two of you got wrong to ask again later.
We’re all familiar with this trivia favorite. Write answers
down on one side of your note cards and point values on the other side. The
harder ones get more points. Spread the cards on the table answer-down. Keep
track of points on a piece of paper and take turns reading the questions. Don’t
forget to answer in question form!
