Things we do while we should be studying.

Sigh! The month of march, brings with it your final exams, where every student is forced to work against all basic instincts and study, in an attempt to pass the upcoming ordeal. However, we all know we are gonna do a lot of other things instead of studying. Here's some of the things I do while I should be studying....

1

Daydreaming

Daydreaming

This one is a no-brainer. All of us daydream about random things, like how it'd be if I was dating the girl of my dreams, or how coll it'd have been to have superpowers, or how my batsuit would look like, had I been born as Bruce Wayne. Basically day dreaming is what our minds decide to do instead of studying, because let's face it; these alternate lives we dream up for ourselves are way more interesting than any textbook.

Texting

Texting

Well, you know, when you're studying and your friend pings you up, you know you have to reply, or else you'll end up seeming rude. However, one simple innocent reply can turn into a three hour long deep conversation about what you all will be doing 30 years later when you're old and rich and living on the moon.

Doodling

Doodling

This is one that happens to me the most. As an inspiring mangaka (big dreams, I know), and also an art enthusiast, I just love sketching, and drawing and doodling. And since I don't really have any interest in my current law university, basically every textbook or study material becomes a canvas for me to unleash what ever random BS I'm thinking of at the time. Infact, I doubt I own a single text book that isn't covered in 70% doodles.

Youtube

Youtube

You ever do that thing where you want to take a tiny break from studies, so you decide to watch one small video on youtube, but then four hours later you're still on youtube going through the most random of random videos? Yeah, me neither.

5

Gaming

Gaming

Who wants to study when you can just boot up your system and go online with a bunch of friends and play counter strike, or even, as I prefer, play adventure games offline. Like seriously, who'd prefer studying over hours of fun?

Taking/Uploading selfies

Taking/Uploading selfies

If you,re on snapchat or instagram, or even Whatsapp, after that horrific update, its highly likely that you'll post a selfie at the start and end of your study sessions. I've also seen people posting selfies at almost every new page they turn to with stupid quotes telling how much they hate studying and how likely they are to fail, even though they end up scoring really well. And if, like me, you aren't interested in posting selfies online, you will, or atleast I will, still end up opening my camera app and taking selfies, trying out that new snapchat filter, and so on, because lets face it, I'm more fabulous than that boring textbook can ever be.

Taking Breaks

Taking Breaks

Its very necessary to take breaks during studies in order to avoid overloading your mind with too much information and end up brain dead. However, I don't really study. I do all of the above mentioned things and while away my time, while sitting in front of an open text book. However, periodically, I take breaks from "studying" so I can freshen up my mind before going back to it. So basically I'm taking a break from taking a break, nd I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this.

Clean My Room

Clean My Room

In the 19 years that I have been alive so far, the one thing that has been a constant is the ever messy room I live in. My room has always been messy, except for the short spans of cleanliness. These short spans of cleanliness only come around during exams, because I'd rather clean my room than study.

Make Plans and Study Charts

Make Plans and Study Charts

More than actual studying, I waste a lot of my time thinking about what to study, and how much to study to score how much and so on. I tend to spend a lot of time making these plans, but then in the end, I usually completely fail to follow them through.

10

Sleep

Sleep

Let me tell you, I'm not one of those people who love sleep and can do it all day. I'm someone who'd rather stay awake and watch anime or something than sleep. However, those few times that I manage to convince myself to study for an exam and actually do sit and study, its almost as if I'm hit by Jigglypuff's sing attack. I cant seem to stay awake and end up dozing off right there on top of my books.
