പടനം /Studies/ पदाई

Its that time of the year again... the dreaded (and oxymoronically) the most looked forward to period in an academic year are here. Its almost the end of the semester. That means it is Exam time. Possibly the last one such stint i have in India.

Why is looked forward to? The long seemingly never ending (but never starting) summer break begins the day after the examinations...(this year i have 4 months to while away).

But not losing track, exam time has its own special meanings for all of us. So i thought up about what all it could mean and came up with a small list of stuff that i do in and around an examination schedule...

1) It means its obviously time to run to the nerd in class and beg him to part with his notes for an hour or so, so that i can get my share of studying done by photocopying his notes. Then possibly never see the photocopy again till half an hour before the exam and wish I had studied at least the previous night.

2)I will very soon find the latest Anime torrent i like and start downloading it. Downloads will be super fast and what takes more than a month to downloaded will be downloaded in a matter of days from a Japanese super fast nerd computer. I will finish that anime on the last nite of study holidays for the very last examination.

3)Daydreaming will overtake (in terms of priority) everything else. EVERYTHING ELSE becomes of secondary importance.(EG : Breathing, eating, talking etc)

4) I will have amazing conversations with my roomies with whom i hardly connect and then spend some of the sweetest days in Chennai. I will soon regret this and stop talking to them alltogether.

5) All humans of the opposite sex become sexually much more receptive to a noob like me only during the examination period. Some crazy fucker once said stress makes mammals homosexual. I believe they make them blind and willing to take anything of the opposite sex as well.

6) Alcohol suddenly seems to be very accessible (financially) and i become very tempted to use all my money for that one purpose. I succumb to my temptation. After which i soon resort to begging for a pen to write my examination. Which i don't get. And we know the rest of this drill...

7)Examinations are always a source of inspiration for me to blog about some random topic. I always end up losing my writer's block and can write articles at the drop of a hat (i had to google this one out)...But then there are the articles which i need to write for marks in the exam. That still falls under serious writer's block issues....

9) I have serious mommy issues. I miss my mom and the rest of my family the most (for no reason) during my exams. I keep calling them, mailing them etc. I have issues of talking to somebody all the time, especially people from the family. I end up not studying. I tell them i didnt do well in the examinations. They stop talking to me. And its a vicious circle....

10) Exams means one thing more for me : Lady luck is on overtime...
