Studyblr is simply Study + Tumblr. It's a particularly popular category in Tumblr that is focused on the discipline and aesthetics of studying. It's a creative and productive way to get studying done. And I have found the principles translate well into my work.
Here are snapshots of some of the pages I follow to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.
I have yet to get to the levels that these (very) young students are in but I've been flexing and stretching my journalling muscles as well as grafting in some of my dayjob-data-organising-skills. Since I began to adopt the play of aesthetics into my dayjob tasks, I found that my focus has improved, and my tendency towards impatience and boredom have been tempered to a tolerable degree.
It's just a bit frustrating that I cannot fully show off what I'm writing because it's work (confidential data and all that). So I have to content myself with strategically blurred notebook pages, desk shots, and materials shots.
In addition to writing in my daily journal, I find that "studyblr-ing" WHILE working on a dayjob helps calm the agitation of not being able to do actual art works. The play of colours counts a lot, I think.
In the past week I went on a full dayjob mode and also a full "studyblr" aesthetic play mode. The result : I met my personal targets and suffered minimal distractions. I did get extremely exhausted though, and I needed full eight hours of sleep each night.
Next week I will be doing even more "handwork", meaning more writing on paper than on the computer, because I will be going deeper into the data analysis, as well as getting into the mapping of how to present the results in the report. At this stage I think better with manual writing than digital writing. So I will have on hand my full range of gel pens, brush pens, highlighters, Post-its, and loose paper sheets. I expect it to be quite fun, despite the inherent difficulty of the task itself.

I am an artist-in-progress. I started my creative journey in 2012 and have never stopped taking steps since. Always one step at a time. Always moving forward. It has been an increasingly tough and occasionally rewarding road.
