True Life: I'm Addicted to Facebook

I had two exams this week, I was not being effective at studying, due to my inability to exhibit self control over my Facebook usage, so I decided to make a change. I had a friend change my password for the week. It’s been interesting.

Monday Evening – I need to start studying. I just asked someone to take Facebook away from me. I miss it.

Tuesday Morning – Hello world, better log onto Faceb… drat.

Tuesday Afternoon – Bored in class, finish typing in the address before I remember I can’t log in.

Later Tuesday - I start asking people to check my Facebook page for me. They won’t. Why did I do this to myself?

Wednesday Morning – First exam was this morning. It was way more difficult than I was anticipating. I wanted to vent on Facebook. I couldn’t.

Wednesday Afternoon – I’m feeling cut off from the world. This allows time for reflection. Why am I so addicted to checking this website? This may not be healthy!

Thursday Afternoon - I'm baaaack

Russia Rocks

So recently I have noticed that I have [a] semi-consistent reader(s) in Russia. This is awesome! I can't think of who I know in Russia which leads me to believe it is a stranger who finds me amusing! (If I do know someone in Russia and am just forgetting I apologize profusely.) At any rate, I thought I would say hello to my Russian Reader(s) and let you know that I think you're just swell.

I’m having flashbacks to my childhood nightmares as I sit in the library attempting to study. For, as those of you I am a friend with on facebook may have already seen, my life is looking a little too much like Jumanji.

See the photo if you don’t believe me.

There is a plant inching its way down from the second floor and I fully expect it to spit an orange or purple dart at my friend Sarah any second now. This is most distressing! I don't know the proper cure for someone who gets shot in the neck with a poisonous plant dart! I never learned that in my science class! I am woefully unprepared to deal with this situation!

After this who knows what could happen? The floor could turn to quicksand, giant assorted bugs could wreak havoc, a deranged military man could come after me! The possibilities are endless! My soda is moving right now, I’m guessing stampede, not the fact that I’m bouncing my leg.

Oh Hey Prepared Kyley

I took one of the more intense exams of my college career today. I’ve had difficult exams, don’t get me wrong, but honestly, I am usually really bad about studying for them. Therefore when I get into the exam I tend to not know a few questions, I skip them, and I get the exam done rather quickly. Not so today.

For some reason, I decided I should study for this exam. And boy did I. I filled out the seven page long, size ten font, typed up study guide, I re-wrote it on my legal notepads (I highly recommend these for note taking, no spiral on your wrist = excellent), and I read, read, and re-read.

Then I got to the exam. I read the first question and knew the answer. Read the second and knew it as well. Read the third and...Then I realized what I’d gotten myself into. By actually preparing for the exam I had decimated my time efficiency. The professor whose exam this was likes to give very long exams. I filled an entire blue book! It was absurd. My hand actually hurt when I was done! I have never had an exam take me so long.

On the plus side I really feel like I knew what I was talking about. We will see on Wednesday I suppose. Fingers crossed.
