Dilemma : distractions vs examinations!


 Before typing anything else- this is my 35th post! The no. is significant for me as  I have those many classmates in my current section - 10 B .I would like to dedicate this to each one of them - although 9th was way better - they became too nerdy for my liking this year - still I will really miss them and dedicate this for them! :)







So now the Examinations are gonna start in 3 days and I have had 14 days of study holidays which I have used up - idk if wisely or foolishly and have completed some important lessons. However I do not feel very happy about the way I have studied in the given gracious amount of time! WHY? coz of Distractions - human made and nature made! =D


  • TV :                                                                                                                                                            The great idiot box will easily feature in anyone's distraction list! That too with the coming of Dexter , world cup and millions of mind blowing movies it sure did distract , I didn't watch it THAT much , but I remember once  when I started watching 2 and 1/2 men and ended up watching Detroit 187 ,Simpsons and friends without a break. If I had studied as sincerely as I watched TV I would have got a century in all subjects from 1st - 10th std ( cricket influences speech too)

  • Blog!:                                                                                                                                                         I cannot bring myself to call it a distraction - but that is the truth. However it is the most useful , productive and important distraction I had during this time. I posted only 1 post in this time - love story part 2 . However my increasing reading list ( and interesting) has left me many hours behind my exam schedule. Also , I used up so much time thinking about 1 particular blog topic - which is yet to be published , although I used to think only when while I was bathing , eating , sleeping and watching tv ( which is just about what I actually did =P ) 
  • working?! :                                                                                                                                                            However extra ordinary it sounds I did help my grand mother with some household work! Well...not voluntarily ......she screamed at me a million times and I would have looked very offensive if I did not - what did I exactly do? - when the maid bunked ( which is almost everyday) - I mopped the house thank god no one broke anything ( it was that wet!) , hung the clothes in the sun ( which is unpleasant in this hot summer , my legs burnt ) , went to the shop ( which is actually fun! You can usurp some money =P ) and had to switch all the lights off ( which is not as easy as it sounds , because my father , grand father , mother ,brother heck! everyone leaves it ON!!) These were the times that I actually felt that I was wasting my time and constantly warning my grand mother that if I fail in the exams it is her fault =P

  • Books:                                                                                                                                                                                                             I read the following books during the study hols : hotel (master piece), girls in tears ( my first ever pinky book . which was pretty lame ) , a wonderful new book called Mayil will not be quiet!!! I really love that book!!! and now I am in the process of reading ' all creatures big and small' by James Herriot which is so from the heart that I want to read continuously but sadly the exams are restricting me from that! This is reason enough why i am lagging behind my schedule! If  I start a book I can't concentrate in studies until I finish the book. eg. I couldn't stop myself from reading a book called ' a place called freedom' 1 day before the math revision exam! ( that's called guts!) 

  • Texting:                                                                                                                                              Well , this is not exactly the perfect time to steal you mother's phone and make it your number. I dont know why but I did it!! So when I am in the act of studying my annoying message alert screams! Tada I have to reply! Actually I do enjoy doing this.......but wrong timing right?

  • Talking:                                                                                                                                               If texting is a sin , I am committing a  murder by speaking on the phone! I don't know why , what and how but I somehow manage to never stop speaking on the phone till it becomes too late for me to study. The worst part is I have to feel guilty for having fun! Shivani - I think I spoke with her for atleast 20 hrs this 14 days , Poori - all I can say is more than that =P 



  • World Cup :                                                                                                                                               This is what I call tragedy! God has manufactured this distraction so that I would fail in the exams! Woah! Surely I am not missing the world cup for this STUPID exams! I watch all the matches I can =P , play the fantasy league thing on cricinfo , discuss about the matches India played ( last one is too much! Ind vs SA )                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

    Even writing about distraction is a distraction nowadays! After proof reading this I feel guiltier than ever!! A good therapy for wasting time! From now on exam mode turned - ON ! Bye!
