We’re in the middle of a busy busy period. I have 15,000 words to write before the 19th April and I’ll be honest, I’m a little behind. There’re going to be a few late nights in the coming weeks, I think! If you hadn’t guessed, one of those essays is on Lord of the Flies, a book I studied for GCSE a long time ago, and as I’ve already read and studied it my motivation is somewhat lacking. Still, I’ll persist.

ProPlus have done a little bit of research lately about the average millennial night out. Apparently we spend, on average, £28.84 per night. As a Durham student, that sounds like a hell of a lot of money for one night out, and with revision season on the way that £28.84 can definitely be better spent elsewhere!

But it got me thinking… what would I be doing instead? Well, I’d be working. I’d be in a weird room somewhere in the library smashing out a bit of reading or another thousand words. I’m a fun gal, and am making myself sound far more motivated than I actually am.

What would £28.84 get me if I wanted to have an absolutely banging night in working? Well, ProPlus has challenged me to just that. Let’s see how I can get on the (study) sesh LIKE A PRO!

£4.99 (per month) Music – first and foremost, let’s get the tunes going. My essay writing playlist on Spotify is a weird mixture of old school banger and weird punk-pop hits from my emo days. A real treat for the ears. Think Mayday Parade and Africa. It powers me through and keeps my spirits up, even at 1am.

£2.40 Refreshments – more specifically, tea bags and a carton of coconut water. Tea is an absolute staple, and I try to drink decaff wherever possible. I can get through a million cups in an hour! Coconut water is a little pick-me-up. It’s regular water only way better. Keep hydrated gang – a hydrated mind is a 70+ essay (I can’t guarantee that but I wish I could).

£5 Useful tray – this one is such an essential. I’m a big old believer in being comfy while you work, and so working in bed is a must. But white sheets + tea + chocolate + cheese fries = scary combination. Protect your sheets, keep your tea upright, and generally have a cosy time with a tray. Want to know a secret? These are actually wooden chopping boards – same difference, right?

£1 Chocolate – it’s egg season and ASDA was absolutely rammed with deals. A chocolate egg and a packet of maltesers for £1?! Oh, okay then! If you insist. My usual chocolatey snack of choice is a bourbon, but when you’re surrounded by easter eggs it really would be rude not to. Perfect as a little reward between pages, or for each 500 words that get written.

£2.67 ProPlus – just two tablets (the recommended dosage) contains 100mg of caffeine, or the equivalent of one cup of strong coffee. As a non-coffee drinker, I’m always looking for ways to stay alert and beat away fatigue without having to force that horrible brown stuff down my throat. Though a good night’s sleep is always no1, sometimes those final proofreads come first.

£10.80 Deliveroo – what would life be if we had to leave the house to get food. Can you imagine?!?! The horror. When I’m working late I need more than just a meal deal to get me through. A ham and cheese sandwich is delicious but ultimately depressing. Get yourself some cheese-fries and a vanilla milkshake and you’re ready to roll. The best meal in the world.

Total: £27.96

+ the best late night study session you’ve probably ever had, tbh. And a whole £1 leftover to grab yourself another easter egg if you were so inclined. I’d probably use mine on a bus ticket to and from the library for books I’d forgotten I needed. Joy!

You can keep your nights out, because I’m having a pretty sweet night in. x
