Study...


"Study to show thyself approved..." has been lately my motivation for school... School nowadays has been something completely tedious for me, I am given a book and am told to study. But what does it really mean to study?
I read the book and I go apply the exam, but I found out the hard way that reading only isn't really the trick. By the time I got my test scores I had just applied for 5 and I realized I wasn't as smart as I thought i was. I flunked half of them and the other half i passed by minimum score... shame on me.
So this month, I decided to study, no, really study with notes and highlighting all. Damn it takes forever to understand these books in Spanish, when I'm used to doing school in English (altho I dominate Spanish as a native language, its still tedious), and I can hardly concentrate at all... even if I'm in a well-lighted room alone, or listening to music or talking to people, I just can't concentrate on my books... LHM! But Lord willing I'll learn something from this and pass my next tests with flying colors.
