CSE 2022: Plan/ Strategy/ Daily Routine

This is an everything thread for all stuff 2022. You can post your daily goals, end-of-the-day updates, weekly targets or any weird thing you use to measure your progress. You can put into words & post the soul-sucking sadness that is threatening to devour you & your productivity. You can write what made your day & let others experience the happiness too, at least vicariously. This is a thread to pick each other up. This is a thread to keep each other accountable. This is a no-judgement zone.

--------

“This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything, don't get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone. You have to realize it's going to be a long process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time.”

— Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Was not able to finish Ethics today but I'm happy with all the ground that I covered. Will be able to finish it tomorrow. Also, since I'm going to prioritise GS tomorrow I'll pick up an easier mathematics topic instead of S&D. 


Targets: 

  • Vectors - Try to finish 
  • Finish Ethics Theory + EN Examples 
  • Essay Prep - Quotes + Basics Doc

I was fanboying over Vishakha Yadav's topper copies a while back, saw Divya Mishra's copy today and I'm awestruck. They deserve all the success that they've got, insane skills. Need to put in a lot of efforts to even run in the same race as them. Hopefully one day! Good luck people.
