Let’s face it, homework is the most dreadful part of everyone’s day, and as we lug around our backpacks, we hope for as little work as humanly possible. When it’s time to do the homework we’ve all been avoiding, it can feel really overwhelming. Nevertheless, these assignments have to get done, and sometimes the best way to get it over with is to mix things up a little and leave the house to go get work done.

If you like to get out of the house for minimal distractions, libraries and coffee shops are a good call. Sometimes home can be riddled with technology, and more interesting can take you away from getting your work done. There’s also that chance of being a couch potato and bingeing Netflix all day long. Who can blame you?

Hanging out in the library or working in a coffee shop ensures focus between you and the work you have to do. Many Royals here at Rosary tend to go to the LEC or a local library which encourages a study-friendly atmosphere. Giovanna Pinel a��19 suggests, “People should go study at Bogart’s Coffee Shop! It’s really nice and homey. It’s where I study all the time.”

Others prefer staying home for the silence. Getting out of bed can sometimes be way too hard to do. Melissa Borbon a��18 says, “I like to study at home. It’s really convenient and quiet so I can focus.”

However, if you go out, there are possible concerns. Popular coffee spots like Starbucks are usually pretty busy, and people are almost always walking in and out of the place. Lauren Bueno “18 adds, “If I’m going to a coffee shop, I usually focus on doing busy work for teachers, but if there’s a test coming up, I have to study at home where there are no distractions.”

Alexis Rivas ’18 enjoys the quiet atmosphere the LEC offers for all Royals.

Starbucks may not be best place to get those creative juices flowing for everyone. You risk slow Wi-Fi as well as noisy customers. If you do choose to go, Vanessa Guerrero a��18 suggests, “Make sure you bring your headphones so you can stay focused. It helps me a lot.”

Regardless, if you stay home or not, there are advantages and disadvantages. It’s always a good idea to try new things. Who knows, you might study better at a place you didn’t expect you would.
