I get up at 4 AM every morning to study. When I say I get up, I mean, I have to will myself to get out of bed, when all I really want to do is to break my ipad in to tiny shards, so the alarm will stop ringing (permanently) and I can continue sleeping.
I haven’t gone for my long morning walks for weeks now. I haven’t read any novels, let alone the news paper for a while now. Every day when I go outside to water the plants, I see the messy pergola with leaves all over the floor and a part of me wants to clean it, but then that would mean I will have less time to study. Cooking has been rather sloppy and I have been relying on processed food and leftovers.
My children do help wherever they can. But there is only so much they can do.
And then there is Onam.. for the first time, it is a choice between cooking a feast or studying for the exams. I chose the latter.
Here is wishing you all an advanced onam greetings. I will not have time to blog till my exams are over. Back on 22 nd of Sep.
Before I forget, I am sure many would ask why struggle like this when I have already achieved so much.. the answer is simple. The best is yet to come.. and I tell myself always “I am gonna make the rest of my life, the best of my life”
