The Story Of Study Holidays

Posted: May 12, 2012 in Uncategorized


“From tomorrow onwards we will study seriously”, my roommate said before he slept.

The next day morning I got up at 8:30 after snoozing off the alarm for innumerable times. I got up because the breakfast will be closed by 9:00 in the hostel mess. After freshening up I went to mess and had a nice breakfast, grabbed a cup of tea and started reading newspaper. Enjoying the morning newspaper, especially Bangalore Times, with a nice cup of tea, I totally forgot I had to study.

After flipping through all the pages when I had finally come to sports section, I saw a guy rushing towards bathroom with a bucket in his hand. I looked at my watch. Oh shit, it’s already 9:40. Hot water will not be available now, I thought. I rushed to my room to get my bucket to at least take warm water bath.

 It was almost 10 when I got ready. I sat on my chair and opened my books. I counted the number of pages to be read. I made up my mind that I will finish 20 pages before lunch, again 15 after lunch and some in evening. I planned to finish it off by night. The planning had already murdered 5 minutes of time. Finally I started studying.

After 10 minutes, few of my friends entered the room playing a song with full volume. They started asking questions like how is the subject, how much time will it take to finish and so on. Gradually the discussion moved on to Aamir Khan, Bollywood, Big Bang Theory, new Samsung S3, Temple Run etc. We never realized we were hungry until it was 1:00. Continuing the same discussion we went to mess.

Having a heavy lunch when I entered the room, I realized I had not logged on to Facebook since morning. Surprised. Ashamed. I logged on to Facebook and started clicking on home and scrolling joblessly every minute. I stalked many random profiles(mostly of the opposite sex!) and read and even laughed at some status updates. With a yawn, I logged out and hit the bed. Lazily waking up at 4:45, I went to mess again and had tea. With full determination to study I sat on my chair and started studying. With the shortage of time, I re-planned my schedule for another 5 minutes. This time I continuously read for half an hour.

Then I heard that one of my friend’s parents had come and have brought sweets. The next hour was spent in grabbing, fighting and even running for the sweets. Then it started raining. I went out and stared at the rains as if I was seeing it for the first time. I came back and started studying. It was almost 8:00 and went out to have dinner. When I returned it was time to check Facebook and mail for the second time. At 9:00 the study hour started. Finally I could finish that part which I had planned to complete before lunch. With a sense of satisfaction I got up and played some songs on the laptop. Randomly I scrolled through the playlist and passed the time.

It was almost the time to sleep. When I jumped on the bed and closed my eyes I realized I still had loads to study. I opened my eyes and turned toward my roommate. He was preparing to sleep. I said to him, “From tomorrow onwards we will study seriously”. The Vicious Circle.
