Relax in Study

That’s right. Relax in a study session.

The Final Exam of the first semester in my 3rd year is coming very near. And the amount of work is going up incredibly. I have to make a schedule for every day, in every week from now on, until the end of the examination. Well, that is to be expected. However, this year has one more thing to do: Besides studying for the tests, I have to learn how to relax efficiently during this period of time.

To be more accurate, it must be during any moment when revising for tests.

To become a third-year means that you can be called a “mature” student at the university for now. You have to ‘grow up’ even in the way you study, more particularly, not doing the same thing that you’ve always done before just to get high scores or competing and worrying over so many kinds of stuff before and during the tests. It surely was depressing.

Listening to music is normally the way people like to suggest when it comes to relaxing, right? However, concentrating on studying while listening to music is not always easy for anyone. There is much more to talk about this subject, such as using instrumentals instead of lyrical ones, but I would like to skip this, and really hope that I can have the chance to discuss with you guys at the comment session below.

In my case, if there is anything that can help me relax rather than only music, it must be doing exercises, the 12-minute HIIT workouts. It is very time-saving and such a greatly efficient way to improve your health without wasting too much time in the gyms. Moreover, this can be made to be my excuse for not going out to any gym with any friends of mine. Damn, I just want to stay at home (laugh).

The second thing for me is going out and having a walk (most of the time, alone, yeah). In Summer, naturally, I will go for a run in 20-30 minutes, to beat anything exhausting out of my mind. But in Winter, I would love to walk, and jog, whenever I have time with a suitable mood. Since Winter is my beloved season during the year, you can say that I’m always in a good mood to walk alone. Every time I have a chance to walk like that is always coming along with a wonderful experience.

My major is Mathematics. Pure (Poor, laugh) Math. So doing short-time exercises with enough intensity and going out for a long walk do help very much. If I want to feel refreshed again, I do the exercises and then go take a shower afterward. If I want to think more about the Math problems I’m currently working on during the revision, I may choose to “walk my mind” for a bit. Just feeling the breeze outside, especially in Winter, is enough for “a new wind” of ideas in my head. At least that is what I always believe in. And, you know, if there is any major change in my life since the time I became a Math student, it must be “the way to think and then just do it.” I cannot be “mature” enough yet, but somehow I think I am closer and closer with gradual steps.

I am still a kid. It’s true. And I guess this won’t change before long (laugh). You see, right now I am listening to instrumental music, haha. But I’m not studying, just relaxing. I choose to write a post like this, to remind me of one single thing, one good thing that I can always take on, instead of wasting time on unnecessary stuff. That is Writing. And sure it is. The last thing I wish to say is just that.

Write a post, a daily post. So I write one, and there it is. Before Math, this is truly a wonderful way to relax, once you find out a way to finish.

Just do it. Relax.

Finding a way back here

Hi there, everyone 🙂

It has been a long time since the last time I wrote a post here. Back then that was the time when I had finished translating a volume of my favorite Light Novel Oregairu (already translated into English on Reddit) into Vietnamese. And then I thought I would start a new project soon, to get more achievement as a blogger, but … you see, right?

I haven’t been active since that time until now. What have I been doing exactly? Being lazy. That’s perfectly right. Even before “back then”, I had been participating in writing ‘Daily Post’ on WordPress every day, since August. But after more than two weeks, I “decided” to quit. The answer that time is quite simple: Writing on Facebook is much easier. And I don’t have to worry about anything that might go wrong in the content. I had always found the best freedom on my “Wall”.

It sure is a bit of a struggle to come back here. You know, I haven’t found any improvement in my life when I just kept myself being stuck with Facebook. I want to be a “writer” in some true sense, and of course, I have written very much on Facebook, in a serious tone. However, all of them were just for my isolated mind. I shared with people my posts, but I could not gain anything positive back, to hone my own writing. It’s just like that I had been writing for my own selfish life, running away from the fact that I haven’t improved anything considerable in my way of writing.

The time writing Daily posts here in August sure was one of the best time writing in my life since I saw so many people participating too. And they are all real bloggers, with their own unique styles. I even got some comments on my blog too, that I found it super happy to reply back. Everyday sure was filled with passion and responsibility to complete the task of writing a post about the subject given every day on Daily Post WordPress page.

The reason for coming back here is simple: I wish to be passionate about my writing again. Right now I am currently revising for the Final Exam of the first semester in my third year at university. However, I bet that I can find my time to write, just about 25-30 minutes here sometimes. At least from now on, and that is a good thing. I hope that anyone who will find my post and read it can give me some feedback about the content and the use of English words here. I really appreciate that, and thank you very much in advance 🙂

I’m (still) a newcomer who is finding his own way into the world of writing blogs (and maybe further in the future) and wish to learn as much as possible about various things in the world that all of you share. Thank you for having me here.

Thank you 🙂
