Hi! I’m Joy, the nerd behind The Cafe Scholar!  I blog about study skills, writing awesome research papers, apps and tools for students, and productivity.

The idea for this blog came from my first semester as an adjunct professor.  I was teaching a required freshman course, and I soon realized that many of my students didn't show up to college with the skills they needed to succeed.  Also, there are so many great tools out there – for everything from task management to research to formatting paper citations! – that my students didn't know about.  We didn't have time to cover these resources very much in class, but I kept thinking, “if only I had all these resources in one place!”  I started The Cafe Scholar blog to create the tool I wish I could have provided for my students that first semester.  With the help of my fellow professors and graduate students, I hope to make it easier for us to all study smarter, not harder!

10 Fun Facts about Joy: 

1. I study in cafes.  A lot.

2. I don’t drink coffee.  (Yes. I study at Starbucks. And I don’t drink coffee.  Hot tea or iced tea with Stevia all the way!)

3. My favorite kitchen appliance is the crock pot.

4. I love The Hunger Games series!  (both books and movies!)

5. I am a Materials Manager by day, Adjunct Professor & grad student by night, and blogger by…well, the times in between.

6. I am collecting alphabet soup!  I currently have collected these letters:BA, MDIV, SPSM (and SPSM2, but 2 isn’t a letter!), and I hope to add MA and PhD to the mix!  Areas of specialization: Islam, Muslim-Christian Relations, Christian Theology, Biblical Studies, Intercultural Communication.

7. I am on a mission…to pay for my alphabet soup.  Student loans, watch out!  You’re going down!  Hear more about my journey to pay off debt soon!

8. I am a word nerd.  I love to read and write, I think research papers are cool, and one of my favorite games is Bananagrams!  I used my word nerd superpower (and an awesome program called Magoosh!) to get a perfect score on the verbal section of the GRE last year!

9. I play the French Horn.  Doesn’t that speak for itself?

10. I love Evernote  so much that I became an Evernote Community Leader!

How to Use Evernote to Organize Research

I use Evernote as an electronic version of the note card system. I can keep track of much more data, categorize the same quote multiple ways, organize in different ways until I find the best fit, and carry it with me wherever I go. No 3 x 5 cards required! The best part is that this data is fully searchable!
