First of all, I would like to apologize for being a total idiot these few days, especially if I have made anyone upset or stressed over my sudden over-concern for studies, and also for being anti-social, mugging alone, not wanting to talk to anyone, and for being oblivious of my surroundings.......
Basically what has happened was that ever since the holidays, I sort of lost my directions for a couple of reasons, and it is very psychologically taxing to keep your mind straight when it is bugged down by so many tasks. Sometimes one's priorities can get screwed really badly, and when everything seems so important one just cracks down from the emotional and psychological strain. To tell the truth, it was so bad that I couldn't sleep at all on Thursday night, so on Friday I was near a total loss, and from Wednesday till Friday I haven't had a proper meal as I just had no appetite. And this resulted in me being very.. "emo" and "dao"-ish, and the worst part was that I couldn't and wasn't willing to bring myself together to pour out these to anyone, and the accumulated stress just made the situation worse.
Anyway, after a week of.. "emo"-ing I have decided that some things are best to be forgetten, and after all, one really has to balance studies and relations with other people, and concentrating on either extremes is detrimental, neither is it possible to concentrate fully on both at the same time. An opportunity cost has to be incurred, and a choice has to be made. Setting those depressing stuff aside, I really think we should organise some class outings more often, and when i say CLASS outing I really mean the whole class. No one is to be missed. Also, hopefully we will be able to come closer to one another, as many of us has gone through stages of depression in one way or another. I really hope that we can confide in one another, and don't keep your problems to yourself like me... Keeping things to yourself can only worsen the situation.
And also, another important thing will be time management. With people having competitions, irregular sleeping times, piano exams, olympiad selections, late lessons, catching up lessons, CCA commitments, council stuff, and not to mention the normal studies, and with the upcoming Econs timed assignment, Bio presentation as well as Maths test and whatever that I haven't mentioned, it is really important to maintain a clear mind and prioritise and allocate your time adequately. Don't let these events control your life; you are the one in control of these events.
All in all, take care, and have a healthy, balanced lifestyle!!
