    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..

Staying strong

Today, I had back-to-back classes from 10 a.m. to 1:40 p.m followed by a meeting at 2 p.m. after which I had an hour before another meeting that was preceding ¬†two other back-to-back club meetings! All in all, I had four hours alone, more or less, of meeting time in addition to classes, preparing for an exam, studying, and revision! The day was certainly intense and I am hoping to get a good night’s sleep, after more homework and studying…

When the going gets tough, the tough …

As a student at CSS, and basically at any academic institution, it’s inevitable to have these ‘overwhelming’ days when all you do is look forward to the weekend or to whatever break you might have. It pays to live in each moment and avoid wasting time by doing that which does not benefit you or push you two steps ahead in your academic journey. You just have to stay strong and keep fighting!

A friend shared this joke to enlighten and perhaps touch on a point..

 

Newton’s Fourth Law of Motion:

A student in bed will remain in bed unless acted upon by a large enough panic, usually in the form of exams or class-in-two-minutes-from-now.
