Well said, Shakespeare!

Exactly 19 days from now, I'll be getting ready to appear for my first exam.
My preparation?
I opened my Business Studies book half an hour ago and haven't been able to get past the second paragraph.
My plan?
100 pages a day & I'll be done with Business in 4 days.
The flaw?
I'm not the studious type at all! I get distracted very easily. And I take my time to study. I wasted all of April. May is here now. Ugh!

And to think about touching English Literature within these 19 days too.
The course?
1 book of poetry which contains 22 poems (I think)
1 poem itself which is of 5 cantos (I adore it)
2 Shakespeare novels (Ugh I suck at Shakespeare)
Katherine Mansfield's short stories (12 of them I think)
1 play each by Oscar Wilde (love him), Caryl Churchill (No idea), Harold Pinter (Very, very disturbing)

And here I sit, as Nageen says, "Blog, I don't know, after ever 5 seconds"!

My aim: Use of luxuries such as Internet, television, iPod after 9 PM starting from now. No more shopping, telephone calls & I definitely do NOT need to touch my cell phone (which btw I love and adore and I haven't had since a year now. Technically, I still don't have it but I get to use it if I want *sighs*) Since I went through the pain of staying away from it & still am going through it, that won't be a problem! To continue: No more going out anywhere at all. Except the plays of course! (Anybody for murder? & Ma ma mia!) And I really need to get my sleeping cycle straight.

I need your prayers =)


P.S: Blogging has become an addiction. I love it. Thanks Mano =P

P.P.S: If want to spend the minimum time in the kitchen and make a yummy-licious snack try this:

    And, best of luck for your paper.

    Ubaid, I'm an awesome cook and everyone agrees (I beat them if they don't) and I still use these ready-to-make mixes because
    a) they do actually taste good
    b) sometimes you just don't want to go through the whole process of making it from scratch.

    Anushay: HELLO?! Why isn't MY tag here?! I am responsible for this blog's existence!!!
    Ubaid said...
    chalo walid points... but like my mom teaches cooking as well toh she tought one thing that no doubt thats an easy way which does give taste but the quality of food becomes better if you just spend 4 - 5 mins extra... according to her all it takes to make a meal is 25 mins !!

    so ....

    khair i like the biryani masala's :D !!
    Anushay. said...
    Ubaid: Woh sir shameel k papers nahi hein it's like book available at a store jiska naam i don't remember. Royal palm? you hate it? are you serious? ACCA ke to centers holiday inn waghaira hotay hein be gladd! And yaar some of us just don't enjoy cooking like others =P And as they say "kuch logon ke haath mein taste hota hai" That taste is NOT in my hands!

    Mano: Done baby!

    Momal: So basically, there's hope for me =) Thank you =)
    Ubaid said...
    pls agar possible hua toh tell me the name of the book !! and yaar royal palm mayray ALEVELS key paper ka cener hai ACCA key paper ka center toh mayra liberty castle hai !! and royal palm is very far from my house i live a km away from thokar near UCL so it'll take me daily atleadt 1 hour to reach there =( !! so i'll have to leave house at like 6.30 am or something !! me not like this !!

    Sidra said...
    Wow i am suprised. You know HOW to use a ready-to-make mix? =O. Very suprised you didn't call me and ask pani ke saath aur tou nahi kuch daalna?
    *refers to the fries wala incident*
