The Study Itinerary of Exam Success
As end of semester exams approach, I find myself practicing a confounding ritual in an attempt to pass my subjects. Each night before bed, I mentally write a list of what needs to be done for the current week and logically assign each task to a particular day so that I may safely arrive on the shores of Saturday having handed in all the required assessment.
The following morning, in my enthusiasm to stay true to my Study Itinerary of Exam Success and squeeze every drop of productivity from the available time, I decide to have breakfast in front of my laptop while studying. Upon opening my web browser I’m confronted with a gallery of my most frequented websites. All the favorites and necessities such as tumblr, YouTube, Hotmail, Uni Homepage and various popular downloading sites are present. Of course my decision is obvious, there are three weeks until exams, the only tabs to open should be Hotmail and Uni Homepage. And so I move my cursor to do just that.
But then I look at my breakfast, calculate that there is at least ten minutes of fork-to-plate-to-mouth–then-chew-and-swallow action to go and decide to accompany this endeavor with two YouTube videos. YouTube helps my digestion.
No study will be done today.
