Consistency where are you? Please come to me.

Struggling with consistency post the break I took, its just so hard to sit and study when you have seen how it feels to not study and enjoy little things of life, that slow life where things happen at their own pace. 

But I guess life cannot move this way, you have to study. It sucks when you are not able to give it your all.  Cold is making it tough for me. I don't know where my immunity is gone, a little weather change and I become sick. Anyways whatever happens I need to gather myself tomarrow. Lets hope for a good day. 

Strict schedules from tomarrow. 

I will try to study whatever I could do now.  


Try imagining yourself giving GS papers in January, one day later the actual exam. This will help you finish GS in a timebound manner and consistent efforts too. 
That's what I tried to follow when failed in prelims last year.

Came across a passage that resonated with me deeply and reminded me of this UPSC journey. 

"Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn’t something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn’t get in, and walk through it, step by step. There’s no sun there, no moon, no direction, no sense of time. Just fine white sand swirling up into the sky like pulverized bones. That’s the kind of sandstorm you need to imagine.

And you really will have to make it through that violent, metaphysical, symbolic storm. No matter how metaphysical or symbolic it might be, make no mistake about it: it will cut through flesh like a thousand razor blades. People will bleed there, and you will bleed too. Hot, red blood. You’ll catch that blood in your hands, your own blood and the blood of others.

And once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm is all about.”

Haruki Murakami (in Kafka on the Shore) 

Loved reading this. Putting the book on my reading list. This reminded of a poem I keep going back to in difficult times.


Sharing it here: Kahlil Gibran, Fear


It is said that before entering the sea
a river trembles with fear.


She looks back at the path she has traveled,
from the peaks of the mountains,
the long winding road crossing forests and villages.


And in front of her,
she sees an ocean so vast,
that to enter
there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.


But there is no other way.
The river can not go back.


Nobody can go back.
To go back is impossible in existence.


The river needs to take the risk
of entering the ocean
because only then will fear disappear,
because that’s where the river will know
it’s not about disappearing into the ocean,

but of becoming the ocean. 


Apologies for the poor formatting. 

Keep sharing such poems. :)

I'm still stuck on If by Rudyard Kipling for motivation. Need some diversification.

@Villanelle I have "If" as my wallpaper, perfect antidote to my limitless procrastination tendencies :P



@Purplesunbird Don't think we can ever go back to not re-reading "If". I'll keep posting something every once in a while! Good to see you back on the thread :)

Even I had "If" wallpaper in my room right from my school days. I got that nice and glossy wallpaper from moral science book in class 6th but lost it after I went to college. Now I'm managing with just a printed A4 sheet.

This was a good day overall, the first half was just ohoo! Couldn't progress much in the second half but was still amazing overall. Probably due to base effect xD 

Covered around 80% of management and audit. Finished Upsarg and the land revenue act too. Lil bit of bio. This was surely one of better than compared to previous weeks. 


Cold-brew was a little bitter though but amazing! Flavour was quite different from the normal brew.

Look
If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?
Yo
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin'
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
He's chokin', how, everybody's jokin' now
The clocks run out, times up, over, blaow
Snap back to reality, ope there goes gravity
Ope, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He's so mad, but he won't give up that easy? No
He won't have it, he knows his whole back's to these ropes
It don't matter, he's dope, he knows that, but he's broke
He's so stagnant, he knows, when he goes back to this mobile home, that's when it's
Back to the lab again, yo, this whole rhapsody
Better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
You better

Started prep in Jan-2022.

Put everything into PRE preparation ONLY. Got 80.00 in both vision and vajiram key- GS and 117.XX in CSAT.

Feeling Quite upsetbcoz I had a condition with myself that if I clear PRE this time then only I may expect mains next time. But the scene seems bleak (as I am not good in answer writing; maths optional wala).Need some GYAAN.

Now devoting 11hrs= Current 3.5hrs+ Optional 3.5hrs+ GS 4hrs targeting 2023. Is it good? feasible? any modification needed? (Considering my not-so-fond-of-GS subjects attitude)

Devoting 11hrs daily with no immediate exam isn't sustainable

Secondly, 3.5 hrs for current isn't required imo. Read newspaper daily and keep noting things which you think might not be covered in pt365
