As a long-time learner (and seemingly eternal student), I get asked a lot for tips and tricks on everything from the best way to read an article to how someone should structure a paper or review. After the initial panic moment of wondering why on this good green earth whoever is asking thinks I know what I am doing, there are usually a few things I can respond with.

Recently, through the Facebook Group Bullet Journal for Students, someone asked a question about what spreads people use to keep their semesters organized and productive. I put my ten cents’ worth in, and got told by a few people that they actually found those tips pretty useful (thanks, guys!). One commenter, bless their soul, suggested that I actually put these tips together onto a blog if I hadn’t already, because they were actually useful enough for that. Which, point of fact, is how Millennial Academic was born.

Because I don’t want MA to be just a study blog, I decided to create a study series, instead (possible more than one….?), and here we are. This series, called Keep It Together (KIT for short) is all about having a system. Follow a system long enough, and it becomes a habit. Good habits = greater productivity, making your work more valuable and you a better student (hopefully).

I have several ideas for this series already, but if there is anything in particular that you would like me to tackle, let me know in the comments or by sending me a message through the Contact Me page; I’d love to hear from you!
