I’m Back! :-)

Its been a while since I came online, and I’m already sluggish at my keyboard! o.O

My exams went OK – as usual. Can’t expect a VTU student to say he has done exceptionally well in his exams; unless he/she is a bookworm who lives inside the books!

Well, books and bookworms apart, its good to be back. And as always, I got all the brilliant ideas for blogging during the time of my exams! However, this time, I have had the good mind to jot them down. I also have a list of things I’ll have to do in the holidays, which by the way stretches over this month! Yay! 🙂 So, hopefully you’ll see a flurry of posts coming up. I’ll be continuing the ‘Think it over..’ series as well.

In other news, I bought a computer table to support my 5-year-old PC; its *old* you see. Seems like old wine in a new bottle. 😛

The last minute guy

Pressure has a lot of negative effect on people. Some fight it successfully, while some bow down to its effects developing various problems with their career, relationships, and health. But me, I love pressure.

I’m most productive under pressure. I always do my best at the crunch of time, when its almost like a do-or-die situation. Having said that, it might not be a very good thing as it sounds. Like, most of the times, I don’t get started with many things until this time arrives. Things like studying; I open my books for a test when my friends would have finished studying everything once. Even though this is the case, I end up doing good in the tests (at least, most of the times).

I’m certainly not advocating this method of going about things in life to anyone. Because, every time I do well in a test after preparing so little for it, I tend to think how much more better I could have done if I had actually put in more efforts.

This behavior of mine gets my parents going at me. They get agitated at the very sight of me wasting time (at my PC or in front of the TV) on the eve of the exams. I guess after all these years, they have gotten used to it. My dad does question though: “Wonder how you get those marks in your exams; I bet you are cheating, aren’t you?”

What can I say to that? I give him a big smile. 🙂 <— Bigger than this!

No ‘cheese’ for 2 weeks!

Its exam time again! Yep, our university gifts us with exams every year at time the time of Christmas and New Year! It has been a while since I got down to study, so this will be a great deal of a challenge for me. I don’t think I would be able to write here until my exams are over. That’s 2 weeks from now. I’ll be back in Jan.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Have fun, and enjoy! 😉

And also, this is the first blog that I’m writing from outside of WordPress. I’m using Windows Live Writer. Seems like a very good tool (after I’ve had some bad experiences with Performancing). Anyway, I’ll test this and probably review it once I’m back. 🙂
