Oprah's advice is not meant for me!

Its 00:45 and I am studying (or atleast attempting to). My stoumache seems to be on a mission of its own these days. Its so strange that I always become hungry around these times. Come to think of it, the last time I ate was 7 hours ago! How is it possible for a young student like me to maintain healthy eating habits? Think about it, I eat the greasy food that the residence caterers serve, I eat three meals daily which are at set times and I am awake at ridiculous hours! As a faithful Oprah fan, I know that it is advised that you eat your last meal before 19:00 and that you dare not touch anything afterwards. I just came to the sad realisation that THAT piece of advice is sooo not for a university student because for you not to snack or drink anything after that, you will have to be asleep! Oprah, I think we need to go back to the drawingboard with this one.

Procrastination 174

If procrastination was one of my modules, I would be Cum Laude! I am in the middle of exams and I'm still struggling to get into study mode. Yesterday I was supposed to start studying. I had my books and all the neccessary stationary right in front of me. I had my laptop, thinking I would need it for the academic documents I have on it. To cut a long story short, one movie lead to another and before I knew it, I was falling asleep. Knowing that schedules dont usually work for me, I drew one up anyway thinking "THIS time, I will follow it!". Well, according to my schedule I should be reviewing chapter 9 on the Kinematics of particles. Oh well, I'll get to that later...

I blog what I like.

While signing up for this a thought came to mind. Why do I want to blog? Are blogs the new age dear diary where you write things, hoping for some form of release? Do you pour your heart out on the internet with the hopes that maybe someone will read it and you will gain instant fame? I'd like that but thats not why Im here. Do I care if anyone ever reads this? Not really. What I'm trying to say is, its not about the reader, its about the writer, how she sees the world and perceives situations. We all keep a fraction of ourselves in our minds, where no one can hear us. In our heads no one can "correct" us, condemn us or judge us. In my head thoughts are like smarties being shot from the sky at the speed of light. Too many colours, too fast and very random. My blog wiil be the place where I can structure my thoughts. So if you do read this, know that you are in my mind and you cant judge me here.
