'Tips' to study

It's midnight 2am now. But i'm not sleeping yet. Tomoro i have an exam paper. Oops.. sorry, i should say TODAY since it's adi over midnight. However, that's not the reason I'm not sleeping. Instead, I was actually playing game just now. Kinda amazed with myself. lol

I wouldnt say I'm very 'senior' in UTP now, but i'm definitely very 'experienced' in handling matters in UTP. After studying here for 6 semesters (3 years), i guess everyone should be able to manage and adapt to the 'culture' here. 

Let's hear a story of my past. In foundation year, when I was naive and innocent (now I'm still naive and innocent, :P) I study every day after the lecture.. Seems pretty amazing huh. And i brought 2 to 3 textbooks to class, and copied down the lecture notes even though softcopy is provided. "Copying notes makes you remember better", this was what i thought. I could burn midnight oil just for a little 5% quiz or even lesser percentage. Furthermore, i'm punctual in every class and never skip any classes. Lol, flashing back on those moments made me smile. I wonder why i would become so lazy now.

So, now, I do not bring any textbooks to class anymore since it is heavy and pretty much i dun need the books at all. Therefore, i might as well leave it in my room. I always carry an empty bag and a file to class. It's not exactly empty actually, it has my pencil case and umbrella.. and that's it. lol. Going to class, i'm still punctual, compared to others. But after a few punctual attempts, I realize there is some class, no matter you came in time, or 15 mins later, the class is going to start at 15 mins later anyway (due to other latecomers). That's the time when i learned, punctuality might not necessary (but i came late 5 to 10 mins only la, not 15 mins) I tend to skip class sometimes, just to go home. Sometimes is to meet friends, sometimes my siblings back home. Reasonable ponteng, isnt it? haha.. 

I didnt really care about quizzes now. Unless i scored pretty bad in previous quiz or i think i got a fairly low coursework marks. Another reason is the quizzes are mostly 'pop' quizzes. No energy to prepare for it every time. I'm very relax this semester and I've reached the peak of my laziness (at the moment). Getting very sien of studying and fortunately i'm going for internship next semester. Like now, playing games and blogging on the exam day? it never happened few years back. And honestly, I have 2 more chapters to study. lol 

Studies isnt everything, do you agree with me? I think so, only if i still have a relative high cgpa (result). If i  score badly, i guess i would regret and disagree with this statement. lol. Anyway, i guess it's time to study.. I dun want to lose an A for a subject that i could get A, that's so not worth it. 

What i want to conclude is... Study hard? No, of coz not. Study smart is the key. When you know how to study, or i should say when you know how to score A, there's no point to study hard anymore. Like me now, what for studying so hard while you could achieve the same thing with less effort. We talk about efficiency here.. Achieve the best thing with least effort. lol. It has its drawback though to 'study smart'. It makes people become so lazy.. And i think the effect is permanent! Once lazy, forever lazy~
