Studying is never as simple as it sounds.Targets are set and schedules are made to be followed during the preparation leaves before the semester exams. But, the fortnightly ‘vacation’ is riddled with distractions and procrastination.
A very important group of people in your life that will surely ping at all the wrong times during exams. Exchange of notes over late night cups of coffee acts as a great stress buster, but not when you have the syllabus piled up!
Lovers, the people you can rely on for almost everything. They will pick you up when you fall down, and love you even at your worst. But have patience, young lovebirds! Love can wait, but exams can’t.
- TV Shows and Movies
TV Shows and Movies gravitate a serious attention during the exam time. One might resolve to watch them during breaks, but at times it happens that some videos that we watch tend to stay with us and, hence result into a major distraction. A subtle escape mechanism from the melancholic exam schedule, watching movies is definitely one of the most time taking distractions.
- Party Plans
A party during exam? Doesn’t sound that bad. That is what you find yourself saying when your phone pings on the table covered with books. Friends are going, what is the harm? Well, the harm is that the party will turn into an after party, and you won’t know when to stop. Be the party pooper if you have to. Reserve such parties after exams when the weight of the semester lifts off your shoulders!
- Late Night Hangout Plans
How could you say no to a late night plan of driving across the city with friends or simply hanging out at a friends’ place? After all, it does seem to be relaxing, especially after a day wrapped in a tight schedule of studies. Everything seems to lure during the exams, but drawing a line between a ‘relax-time’ and distraction is what it’s all about.
