All Hearts are dead except those with knowledge... All those with knowledge are asleep except those who perform good actions... All those who perform good actions are deceived except those with sincerity... And all those with sincerity are in a constant state of anxiety... [Imam Shafi'i]

I need help concentrating 4 exams! Any ideas ppl. I'm the worst procrastinator! Worse than flynn, ash apu, any1 else! No matter how much i yell at meself it dont work :(

How do u guys concentrate? Ash apu's been called a science geek by some1 who i wont mention *cough cough*, how do u study?

Lost is on 2nite!!! yay!!! Love that show! Hafta watch! U c, me parents come home at 6 and after 7:30 I watch TV sometimes and afta 8:30 i'm always watching TV coz all the good shows r on den. So they dont c me studying and they think that im always watching TV, hehe. I'm not always watchin TV but i'm not exactly always studyin either. But its all good. No prob bobs.

Hey u guys like the name of me blog: C'est la vie = thats life. Do u rememba the song from the band Bewitched called "C'est la vie"? I used to really like it. "Say u will, say u wont, say u'll do wat I don't. Say the truth, say to me, C'est la vie" - ring any bells? well, im ancient wen it comes 2 songs so lave me alone.

Now i shud really go - studies calling. I'll save u guys the gollum impersonations ;)

Hmmm...not watching TV sounds like a great idea- but personally, like ishi here, I'm hooked on Lost! Isn't it great?

Anyway- I resent being called a science geek! Who said that? Must find out and eliminate!! want advice from moi? Well- what can I say, just sit down and tell yourself you won't get up till you've studied for an hour or so, then reward yourself with a well-reserved break! It works for me (sometimes)!! I don't know what else to tell you...

By the way...c'est la vie sounds cool:)! Oh yeah- don't bother calling me apu- Ash is fine, just right!!

No TV, I cud never do that :P But I cud decrease it insha Allah. It's just that we have too many TV's at home (1 downstairs, 2 upstairs, and computer is like a TV kinda coz of the DVD player in it). So u c I'm usually home alone, no1 keeps a check on me - too much temptation.

Ash (feels wird without the apu attached, but shud get used 2 it :P), u no wat happens 2 me if i study 4 a while and then give myself a break? I end up studying for an hour and breaking 4 like 2 or 3 hours, lol. I need some1 at home with a lathi (stick not kick) to hit me wen i deviate from studying. Any1 willing 2 offer :P?

At least some1 thinx c'est la vie sounds cool. Learn from Ash, Flynn! hehe :P

Lathi? Really- does someone need to resort to such extremes to convince you to study? I really can't believe that! You need to look within yourself and find a source of motivation- then focus on it. Always think about why you are studying--then it will work! At least it does for me.
And I tell myself that I don't want to go to bed at night with a guilty I motivate myself to study for that reason as well. Ok- the last piece of advice- think about the fact that other people (your parents) have faith in you and trust you to study by yourself --tell yourself that you will never take advantage of that trust and abuse it! This should work...I think!
Well, hope you don't feel like using a lathi on me now! Just wanted to lend a helping hand!
Good luck!

By the way- try to get rid of some of those TVs...I agree: there's too much temptation for you. I'm sure your parents will understand--mine wants to get rid of the ONE Tv we have!! Always threating---that's another reason I tend to watch only certain programs and only at specific time!

See, amar problem is I have too much freedom, in everything!

And tha lathi thing, yes, people need to resort to that. Munira apu sent me i think more than 10 virtual smacks, it still didnt do the trick.

But u c, to have motivation, often u need some1 to motivate u. Usually at home, I motivate ppl and no1 moivates me.
