Things NOT-TO-DO When It Comes To Studying

Photos from W705

Still in the midst of the student life makes studying a necessary part of daily routine. Getting the momentum to start studying could be such a pain. So, here is the list of things to AVOID or NOT-TO-DO if you are really down with the mind-set to STUDY.
*This list is merely just a personal opinion*

Yes I mean it literally! That comfy bed lying in the bedroom is definitely more tempting than the stack of books to be read through or the stack of notes to be studied. The obvious choice most people I know would choose is THE BED! Studying on the bed makes things worst when you actually doze after 10 to 15 minutes.

So that bed of yours? Its either lock that bedroom until its time for sleep at night or taking the bed away.

This is especially true when your hometown has more attractions than your place of study.  Going home during the study period is really a bad idea. Don’t believe me? I’ll prove it. There has always been failed plans to study every time I make a trip back to my hometown, Penang. Going back home calls for gathering with ex-classmates whom you do not see occasionally, gathering with family members whom you are closely-knitted to, and going out for good local delicacies.

So, going home during the study break? BAD IDEA!!

The internet is such a distraction to be honest. (The fact that I am blogging at this moment proves it.) Video clips to be watched online, blogs and daily updates to read, the addictive Facebook and Twitter and then there is online chat like MSN. Not only it is time consuming to be online, it takes your mind off your priorities. And, this is especially true when you have fast-speed internet connection.

So, turn off that WIFI, switch off the modem and shut down the computer NOW.

That is it for now! It takes more will power to get down to studying. I am going to succeed. ADIOS for now. =)

As Time Goes By


Time is the answer. That is my stand today. As our life move on along with the momentum of the world, time is the best prove to what we see, hear or feel.

Though time showed the worst of people, it showed the best of them as it passes by. Every split second is the teacher of life. As time goes by, I have seen the best of men and also the worst. For many weeks in the past, I have seen the worst. Perhaps not the  worst, maybe its just worse. Then it comes to my thought, is the anything worst that I have yet to see? How would the dependency of a relationship between men withstand the test of time when time constantly becomes the divider between people?

As of now, I had seen time changed many. A change from good to bad, bad to worse, close to unfamiliar, friends to enemies. Happy as I may for many friendships remained the same and grew better than before through time; sad as I can be to see other friendships crack as time starts showing the greed, selfishness, cruel and dark side of a friend. Would such a friendship make or break with the test of time? Time is the answer. As a dear friend said a few days ago, “I see people change through time when they are abroad. They said they won’t change but they still did”.

For many years, my decisions made were hasty. I believe in taking a stand with no regrets. Without proper analysis and thinking, it seems like taking a wrong turn or the wrong path whenever the route divides. Though many were the RIGHT decisions, there still remains many which I would say the WRONG ones. One that was so incorrect; the darkest route that may exist; routes that turn the worst of me to light. Perhaps, it is an OPPORTUNITY to learn to grow with time as every wrong move would teach a valuable lesson. At least at the very end, I could stand up high and say I MADE MISTAKES BUT I LIVE A LIFE OF NO REGRETS. Bak kata pepatah, bumi mana tidak ditimpa hujan.’

TODAY, with heads held high; I would say the frequency of making such unforgivable errors diminished as every second passed by and I certainly withstand the test of time in life and I would continue to for many years to come or even for eternality. Doubt me if you might, I withstand the ever changing periodic test time has for me and I would continue to do the same retaining my best qualities; my roots and traditions (I am not being ‘lao eah’); my values and various type of relationships. Time is the best measure for many things in life. Time is the answer; the key; the best solution.
