I'm trying to be active and productive. I have spent the whole day (now it's 5pm) waiting to reach the point of my to do list where I would have had to study.
Here I am, 10 hours after I woke up, and still haven't done a thing. As yesterday and as the day before.
I've actually found an inspiring spot and have all my stuff in front of me.
The progress today is: I have opened the file I should listen to and focused for 15 minutes. Then I just watch myself opening up pages, daydreaming, thinking, unfocusing. -.-
Good thing: I'm in a public place and they're playing some music - "I Want It All" reminded me of how I used to feel, when I was 11 yo, listening to Queen.
I do have energy and enthusiasm inside. A LOT.
I miss it. I sense it, but I don't feel able to grab it and take it up here.
[People who knew me before remember this, my old self, and maybe something of it it's still visible, I'm not aware].
It's part of me, I could burst and explode, if only this drowsiness would fade away. I have a sun inside which got suffocated through the years and now I can't move. I just follow the days as they go by and this crushes me.
I've tried several strategies, in the past three years, but I can't find what could work for me.
I've tried to concentrate for short periods of time, then take a break, then study again and so on, but it has worked for a few days and then stop.
Same applies to anything else.
(I change my way of studying as my needs do, though, so I don't expect a method to work all the time).
Does anyone have tips to focus on the short term, heading to bigger goals?
(I'm referring to college's exams in particular, in my case!)
How do you manage to mantain a regular studying activity? If you manage to do so, otherwise feel free to comment down below you too, if you wanna share something. :)
How do you like to study?
Btw: "My Fairy King" and "Great King Rat" are two curious songs by Queen I really like. I'm trying to take my light and my younger spontaneous and full-of-enthusiasm self out and these songs resonate in a particular way, now eheh ^^
Thank you for reading - a hug to everyone ~
