I have my mid term exams from monday.I have to study for them.But can anyone tell me how will a better grade help my life ? I am sure I will study now.But how it will help my life ? I can put in my brains in studying for them.but I need this answer to put my heart in it.What drives you to study for an exam ? Cut out the recognition from this world jazz.I stood last , and the world ridiculed me.I stood first , and they were jealous of me.People who loved me before IIM happened still love me and those who hated me still hate me.Cut out the prove it to myself jazz.I have had enough of exams I have struggled through.I know myself.How will a higher grade help my life ? Damn.I will study.Damn.



r U oK ???

Personally, to me a 94 is no different from a 49. But apparently to others it is. Because they judge you by it. It's sickening how the entire world is bent upon judging you. Even people who hardly know you want to judge you. A 94 means "Wow, smart!" A 49 means "Dumb Fella".

It doesn't matter if you yourself know that a 49 doesn't mean you're stupid. I'm as proud of myself with a 49 because I know I'm capable of a 94 if I want it, but I don't. But we live in a damn society which involves living amongst other people.

So, if you care about them people, study! If you don't, screw it. Because some numbers on a paper, don't define you. As you said, you are still who you are. Those who love you will always think you're grade A stuff whether you get a 94 or a 49.

P.S. - I can pay... so is it 94 or 49? ;)

Here's raising a toast to studying,studying & more studying.

Akanksha said... does it help??...hmmm good question!!!
but i hvnt seen the smile as good as the one that comes on my dad's face after a good result...after that it all bcmz meaningless! initially it was for my dad, for the gifts that he brought after agood result...later for something else...and today for survival!! i guess reasons hv changed but the compulsion to study...aaah "never!"..all the best for exams.
