    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Carpe Diem

 

“I’m very busy doing things I don’t need to do in order to avoid doing anything I’m actually supposed to be doing.”

Lately some of my friends and I have been subscribing to the words of Horace in his poem in the Odes (book 1, number 11).. at least this specific part. Not wanting to let life pass me by, we have been actively going through each day, setting mini-goals to be accomplished in a day, an hour and so forth, hoping to be aggressively fruitful. Sometimes, we get crashed in our efforts to be productive college students. For instance, on my part, I can hardly resist watching a movie when I am feeling bored or feeling like doing nothing (especially after an exam). Thus, I put off whatever I had scheduled to do at that time to a later day or time – procrastination.

Despite the hurdles, I always enjoy the feeling of accomplishment when I perform a task well and timely. I am already through half of my first year and next year I will be a sophomore… time waits for no man… so the best I can do is to make the best out of what time I have and seize the daycarpe diem
