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!

When you have to Reorganize a Research Paper

Your organization and structure will probably change several times as you write your paper. Sometimes you come up with a clever way to word your thesis, and then you need to make your paper structure match. Other times, as you are writing and revising, you realize that something might make more sense in a different part of the paper. This can result in a bunch of cut-and-paste madness. It’s kind of a pain, and it is really easy to lose track of something or miss a section as you go, especially if you have to do a lot of scrolling to move a paragraph somewhere else in the paper.

The Cafe Scholar is Back! & My Focus for 2018

That’s right - I’m back!  The past few months I’ve been going through some major transitions and life changes.  I usually wait to share about transitions on social media, but now that the dust has settled, I’m so excited to share what’s been happening in my life and...
