I’ve been spending so much time studying lately that it seems like all I do. I thought maybe I haven’t had much free time in the last couple weeks because I have been spending so much time with Jan, but I was thinking just now and I realized all we have even been doing together is homework and studying (we watched a 90-minute movie yesterday, but shhh). Such is the life of a university student at exam time. I’m finally at the point where I have only one midterm left, but it’s still a midterm…
I spent kind of a ridiculous amount of time on the elliptical at the gym today. I had my Japanese midterm at noon, so I decided to study at the gym when I went in the morning before class. I usually get really bored doing cardio so I don’t tend to go more than thirty minutes, but being so intensely distracted studying really hard for Japanese, fifty-six minutes on the elliptical just flew right by. 😛 I went hard for 45 minutes and then walked for ten (a one-minute warm-up makes fifty-six).
I wish I could distract myself that well on a normal day! I almost went so far as to wish that I had a test every day so I would always be urgently studying rather than thinking about how long I have been running, how far I have gone, etc. I always listen to music while working out, but it really doesn’t help enough. Sometimes I bring books, but reading while running is actually quite an unpleasant experience. I can only read on the elliptical, and only just barely, but I use the treadmill three days a week and the elliptical only twice. So in the end, it all comes down to willpower and trying SO HARD not to give up out of boredom.
My willpower really sucks, you know?
I feel like I’m living in a fog. My tiredness is so beyond the help of sugar… I had ice cream an hour ago, but it did absolutely nothing for me. I don’t want to drink coffee tonight because I already had some this morning to wake myself up. I promised myself I would study Italian tonight so I wouldn’t have to spend hours and hours studying it tomorrow like I did last night for Japanese, but it’s only 10:12pm and I’m already in quite a state. I will try to study on the treadmill tomorrow… help me God. xD
I really don’t know what I’m saying. Too tired. I would say “proper blog soon” but damn it this is proper. I don’t know how I lived on so little sleep in high school. I was literally shaking this morning.
Time to go die for eight hours. I think I could even sleep nine… oo…
