RwR 24/4 to 30/4

The final week of exams…

SoTW: Exclusion – Lucas King / You Raise Me Up – Selah

Timecheck: 11:19pm.

 

Three days past when I was supposed to write this entry – mainly because I was busy studying for my papers yesterday and today. So finally it’s all over, but this isn’t going to be a semester reflection post, just the usual weekly recap.

How I’ve been…

  1. Physically:
    1. Sleep cycles have been generally the same as the previous week – late, but regular.
    2. Things were more or less okay health-wise.
  2. Mentally:
    1. The usual academic stress that comes from revision.
    2. Had papers on Tuesday and Wednesday, then really switched off until Saturday or so when I started panicking and trying to get notes done so I had something to study, lol.
    3. Cognitive processes were working fine during exams, just not so well before and after.
  3. Emotionally:
    1. Things went from a semi-low state on Monday to a high state on Wednesday following the end of the paper before taking a nosedive on Thursday and Friday.
    2. Slowly crept up again on Saturday and Sunday though. Which follows how both SoTW went.
  4. Socially:
    1. Didn’t have many, if any, meetups this week with friends. Unfortunately that tends to be the case during the exam period, since people (including me) are hardly ever in school.
    2. Still, the occasional acquaintance which came to say hi and talked for a bit before the papers provided some much needed social relief.
    3. Many (though not all) seem to have friends to take exams with, and discuss how the paper was after it’s over. Maybe that’s the perks of making friends within one’s batch of peers/majors.
    4. Perhaps I should try doing that, but there’s only two more years left. Better late than never though?
    5. [BGR]: Didn’t really notice so many couples during this period – I guess it’s because it’s still exam week, and so most are preoccupied with academics instead of other stuff. This topic also wasn’t on my mind so much during this period so it’s not too bad.
  5. Spiritually:
    1. Took a similar course to that of my emotions with a major peak happening during the weekend after some thinking and reflection.
    2. Surprisingly I seem to be able to see spiritual lessons in things like anime and manga. Not everything of course, but if one consumes sufficient media there’s bound to be something one’s seen somewhere before – some similar tropes.
    3. It doesn’t matter that they’re similar though – what matters is what one learns from them. And so coming across unusual animanga and contemplating about it – I learnt a thing or two about myself and God. Pretty cool.
  6. Character improvements:
    1. Making steady progress after spending some time introspecting.
    2. In several areas, that’s good too. Long may this continue.
  7. Hobbies:
    1. Played a bit of CS:GO on Thursday and Friday, was not bad.
    2. Some guitar too, was fun.
    3. Nothing on drums – planning to record covers after finals are over.
  8. Random thoughts:
    1. “Some things are worth dying for.”
    2. “Some things are worth fighting for.”
    3. Fighting for something can be the same as not fighting for something.
    4. Therefore some things are not worth fighting for even though one is fighting for them. It doesn’t have to be literal.
    5. It would be nice to have someone to meetup with after a paper and talk about how it went, but because most people just wanna go home, that’s fine too I guess…
  9. Week ahead:
    1. Last two papers and FREEDOM IS ‘ERE!
  10. Prayer for upcoming week:
    1. Well, I’ve already finished my two papers as of typing this. But I think…pray for continued strength to forge ahead with my summer plans, and also for wisdom to make as many right decisions as I can.
    2. Also for The Priestess’s sis – that would be most important at this time ><
