the original thread used to be here

the previous thread is here:

Cloudy's Cafe



Come in, be welcome, be comfortable, be yourself

Welcome to Cloudy's Cafe, a place to have a cup of coffee or a good
darjeeling and the finest in conversation and camaraderie.

The proprietor asks that you follow a few simple guidelines:

this is a real conversation zone, not a role-play zone



* no flaming; if you disagree with a viewpoint expressed by any patron, please do so in a civil manner

* any topic is fair game, but keep posts to the standards that Ziroc has set for the entire forum, please (ie: foul language is not appropriate and things should be suitable for all audiences)
-a side note from Cloudy: I see this as a place for those short
conversations about a new baby or the latest soccer fiasco, not for things that are big enough to warrant their own threads, by all means give those things the space they need and post separately!

* Please, no one word or smiley posts (Ziroc has declared them 'real spam' and the proprietor doesn't want the reputuation of "good spam" to suffer!)

* do feel free to be serious or silly and enjoy the company of others while you are here. By all means POST if you have something to say, even to start another topic , we can handle multiple chats, we're a CAFE!!! But be courteous and don't disrupt a conversation just to disrupt it.


Come on in! The bar is stocked with coffees, teas, juices and waters from around the world. And purple napkins, of course!

The lighting is low, the golden oak counters and tables glow with inviting warmth. Near the window, the lighting is brighter, as comfy, plush leather armchairs wait for those who'd like to read a book while relaxing to music or just lazily watch the world go by.

I had a pretty bad-ish weekend. I have two exams coming up next week and I should really have studied a lot for them, but I just don't manage to motivate myself to study. I managed to get four hours done in the whole weekend. Does anyone have any ideas as to how you can get yourself some motivation?

Edited to remove first postishness.

I always find, leaving my computer turned off, and pretending it doesn't exist, helps. If I turn my computer on, I always end up losing concentration and begin playing on a game. How does this motivate, you ask? Well, don't tell me you have anything better to do than post on this forum. If you can't post, you might as well do some studying.

That might help Blunderbuss, but I need the computer to talk with those with whom I do the exams over MSN.

Ah, you are doomed, then. Good afternoon. We are about to leave on a family hike.

Thanks. I might need luck more than usual if I don't get to study until then...

Attalus got in first so I'll add that I was referring to Blunderbuss' post.

Patrick, put some chillout music on (Vangelis are good...I also have a good 4cd collection of classic chillout) and stay away from your computer as much as possible. That will definately help you. Also, it is much more effective to plan your time, say two hours of study then an hour of computer, two more hours and an hours computer. If you get up early enough then you can have all your studying (say 6 hours) done by mid afternoon and you can do what you like for the rest of the day. That's what I did to get straight 1s anyways [img]smile.gif[/img]

Good luck!
