Studying in the library. Borderline solitary confinement. Doing work ahead of schedule. Very few distractions. Old leather backed books. Musky smell. Vanilla. Sunlight peeking through the windows. Pumpkin pasties. Writing small so you can fit everything in. Taking great care. 100% all the time.
Katniss Everdeen - The Hunger Games
Questioning everything. What is the point? Procrastination levels to the max until someone tries to be better than you. Not studying much but getting an A. Using simplified words to understand. Technology is everything. Sleeping in late and then straight to work.
Tris Prior - Divergent
Straight back when you begin then suddenly you’re lounging on the floor. Greyscale. Minimal colours for effectiveness. Writing down everything. Actually paying attention in class. Auditory learner. Wanting perfection. Trying to pull an all nighter but failing.
Annabeth Chase - Percy Jackson
Managing everything. Working out in study breaks. Architectural sketches everywhere. Motivational quotes for inspiration. Thinking back on how far you’ve come. White desk. Having a clean study space until you actually start studying. Teaching yourself things.
Clary Fray - The Mortal Instruments
Paint speckled notes. Music blasting through headphones. Messy desks. Hair hastily pulled into a bun. Getting distracted easily. Random doodles on the sides of textbooks. Smart but doesn’t show it all the time. Study groups with lots of people. Quizzing each other. Collapsing on your bed after a long study session.
Teresa Agnes - The Maze Runner
‘I give up’ you say as you continue. Pushing yourself. Trying to beat the system. Piles of notebooks. Stretching your legs. Studying in bed. Using a laptop instead of writing. Study playlist which doesn’t help. Organized for two minutes then it ends. The sound of rain.
