It's the night before a big test. You prepare yourself to pull a all-nighter. You brew the coffee, guzzle the Red Bull, and open your textbook. Before you know it, all the words on the pages are starting to blur. You lay your head down on your open book telling yourself you just need to rest your weary eyes for a sec.
Confession time: How many of you have fallen asleep while studying?
I'll admit it has happened to me a time or two, especially when faced with a wretched Statistics or Astronomy exam. You and I are not the only ones. In fact, study sessions become nap times for most students at some point in their college life. Wouldn't it be nice if you could just curl up in bed, lay your head on your pillow, and absorb everything you needed to know for the next day's test? That would make a cram sesh a whole bunch more appealing!
Barry Weinstein comes to the rescue with his pillowcases! He hasn't quite invented a way for us to absorb information through a pillow---that would be too easy. But he has designed a collection of pillowcases with study notes already on them.
“I studied 8 hours straight for two nights in a row for my first test. Not only did I fail the test, but I fell asleep face first on my textbook leaving an unattractive red mark above my cheek. I failed…. and I was ugly. Then it hit me! I thought that there had to be a better way to study so why not make studying comfortable? I took all of the notes from the entire semester and wrote them on my pillowcase so I could study the information for 1 to 2 minutes every night and when I fell asleep from potential exhaustion, I’d have a nice comfy place to rest my head. For the rest of the semester, I saw the information before I went to sleep and when my final came around, I pulled off an A and raised my grade to a B from an F. Not to mention that I never have to worry about that giant red mark on my face because my new textbook was fluffy!” - Barry Weinstein, PillowcaseStudies.com
Kinda brilliant, right? Barry was kind enough to send one of these studious pillowcases my way. While there's no pillowcase for Journalism yet, Barry sent me a Psychology pillowcase. Back when I was an Education major and taking Psych classes, I could have definitely used it! (I also could have put a Latin pillowcase to good use back when I decided to try to learn a dead language!) Anyway, the pillowcase is super cute and soft! It is white with black text/notes, so it'll fit into any color scheme. And I could totally see these pillowcases inspiring some geek-chic decor in a dorm room!
Right now, these pillowcases are available in: Political Science, Corporate Finance, Biology, Drama, Principles of Psychology, and Art History.
And Barry's offering one lucky Lovely Undergrad reader a pillowcase of her choice!
