Holly Jane is a YouTube Blogger and PhD Student. I’ve only just come across her but her youtube channel is really great. She is really funny and authentic … and has also started doing a “study with me sessions” . These are basically where Holly Jane studies in 50 min blocks with a 10 min tea break and various people join in and do the same. People interact via YouTube chat. It’s a great motivator and given my particular research interest, all this stuff is sooo good! Anyhow I managed to catch one or two of these in the week and they were both great. I did one at lunchtime and then one after work yesterday, which then motivated me to keep going so it’s gotta be a good thing yes?
Anyhow Holly Jane can be found here .. I think she’s great. She also has an Instagram account which I have also started following. I’m amazed at just how much she manages to get done ..
I only wish my study desk was half was as lovely as hers .. mine is just a complete mess! She also has the best view from her New York Apartment !
