Why? Why? Why? Why?

Why is that when I have serious work to do, I can't seem to keep my eyes open? For at least 5 weeks, my alarm has been set to wake me up at 1:30 a.m in the morning so that I can do some studying. Every single night, when that alarm goes off, it's either I keep hitting the snooze button for almost an hour and then finally turn it off or I just turn it off immiediately and give myself one reason or another why I can not be awake.

I have had a hard day. (well, cry me a river)
I studied sufficiently during the day. (Big Lie!)
Or the biggest lie of all: I can make up for it by putting in extra study hours later that day.
I never woke up and studied. Never!

Well, now that my exams have come and gone, I suddenly find that I am actually up way past 1:30 a.m watching The complete blah blah season of something or the other: Desperate Housewives, Prison Break. Grey's Anatomy has been scheduled too.

I wish I could study this dedicatedly.

  14. @ ugo: Programmed? Pray, tell how?

    @ Laspapi: Yep, that about sums it up.

    It is also true for the food that we like to eat. Healthy stuff is boring and difficult to eat, but sodas and junk food hit the palate just right.

    @diary of a G: I will try o! If UD will let me have his secret to programming.

    @kafo: LOL! You sound like a recovering addict.

    @Nyemoni: I know, I know. The mind is willing, but the body is weak.

    @OWNB: Good to see you! Glad I made you laugh. Have you found the
    red shoe yet?

    @noni: Great to see you! I get the results in September. I am runnig over to your blog now to read. i hope you have updated o!
