Albert Einstein once wrote, "Never regard study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn". Not knowing the definition of 'enviable', but believing anything Einstein declares as valuable, I looked up this ambiguous word I'd never heard.

This is when I realized the reason people look up to Albert is not because he was a genius (that too!), but because he had dedication to not only learn, but to pass on his learning like a father teaching his children.
If my grades were Bella, I would be Edward. That is how much I am in love and obsessed with them. The problem is I am not a vampire, unlike Edward, so I need sleep.

It's most people's dream to enter college for the people living in India. Since my school days, I dreamt about entering college to get rid of uniforms.

What do I remember from elementary school and high school?
Why can't I focus on studying? It's a question every student comes faced with in times of crisis. There comes a point when you find it hard to cope with your sudden lack of energy. This leads to a lack of motivation, which affects much more than your marks. As you see your academic performance worsen, it's easy to lose confidence in yourself. That's a trap you should never fall in. Losing motivation in college may be unfortunate, but you can easily regain the energy you desperately need.
