So the year has come to a halt and unless you are insane, the one question that lingers around every one’s mind lane is “what have I done this year”. For the campusbees, its “How have I fared this year” in as far as studies are concerned because believe me or not, we do a lot of crazy things while at campus but the time we spoil while doing such things can yield good results if managed well.
At campus, you can have fun and get away with it only if you have a winning formula and let’s be honest; most people’s years are three phases;
Phase I: This is the start of the semester where you have all the time and you are busy looking for movies, series, & FIFA tournaments. A party is welcome any day of the week and guys are loaded with upkeep and all. It is hard to find a full lecture room at this time of the sem.
Phase II: This is the Middle part of the semester where you start attending classes mostly because of the tests and coursework. You are always waiting for the weekend as you still have time to party and watch movies. For the first time in the semester all students will attend a class because of a test.
Phase III: This is the end of the semester when you actually realize why your parents pay tuition. You start attending all lectures to cover up for the lost time. You get numbers of the focused students to ask, “Do you have notes?” “Do you have a handout for this course unit?” The numbers of trips you make to the Photocopier are probably more than some of the classes you attended.
You realize that the phases above are an eloquent manifest of where much of student’s time is wasted, the first and the second. Yet one can have a blissful campus life and at the same time triumph academically with a simple formula: “Devoting the required time for each and very activity while at campus”.
