Studying habits throughout NTU years

It's rather funny how our studying habits kinda changed for each and every semester.

During my first year, first semester.. as i was still socially inept, therefore, i studied in my room... For the second semester, started to mix more with the Malaysians in my course.. and started studying in the library. We would wake up super early in the morning, and start to wait outside the library at 820am for the library to open at 830am. After that, we would all rush inside, flinging our notes and bags all over the table to book the place, and off for breakfast. Will have lunch, tea break, dinner and supper. Would stay in the library until the library closes at 1130pm.

That was first year. In my second year, first sem.. It wasn't so much of a library anymore. Started off studying at CITS (computer room) near my school and in SAC. This time off, we were more of a die-hard-studying students.. We would go to the benches along the academic spines after midnight to study until like 2-3am. And because the tutorial rooms will be available 24/7, we sometimes would study there as there will be airconditioned but smaller tables to study. Not to mention in Canteen A as it is more spacious and available 24/7 too..

And now, 2nd year 2nd sem... It's back to library. BUt, it's not like how we studied a year ago. We would be slacking off, playing games, watching video clips in the computer and just talk. Somehow, to energy to study seemed to have fade away. We would return to our beloved rooms much earlier, and will start going to the library at a later time.

I wonder what would happen next year.. But i think i can have a glimpse of it. As most of my friends will be going for exchange, I suppose I would study alone in my room if I decided not to make new friends... haha... and the following sem, will be internship!!
As for now, really do not have the desire and commitment to study. Just died off... Just waiting for time to pass...

End of First Paper

It's the end of the first paper!! Feeling happy because one paper has just over but not so because it means that it's time to prepare for the harder ones. The best thing to do right after you finish any paper is to throw all your lectures/tutorials/notes away for that particular subject. Then, your table will look somewhat emptier.. After several papers have past, the table's pretty much see-able.
On to reality! There's still another paper tomorrow that I've barely touched. Fortunately/unfortunately, it's an open book examinations. Till then, shall have a short nap before continuing on the 'war'.

Exams: The end of 2nd year

This time around, everyone would be busy mugging... all well prepared for their examinations.. And me? What am I doing? Slacking off... not in the exam mood... And to make it worse, my first paper is tomorrow.. There are notes lying just right in front of me waiting to be read...
I've no idea why, but I've been playing the new CnC3 game for the past few days.... but come to think about it, for the previous sem, i was busy watching the Heroes Series... But what's the difference between this semester and last semester? I suppose i was more prepared the previous semester... The day or 2 days before the paper, would meet up with a few of my friends, soo fan and xin fern to practise some past year paper questions. But this sem, I'll be alone in the room trying hard to study but to no avail.
Looks like my self-discipline has gone down the drain and wouldn't care less about the future...
Here to remind myself, that life goes on...
