Use social media, but stay productive



By: Arica Batta

Ever wonder, when you listen to the word exam, what is your first reaction? Some people think that exams are the main reasons for sorrow and depression, but do you really know what they are? They are absolutely not just the tests in which we all try to score well. In fact, exams are an opportunity to prove ourselves in order to make a better future ahead.

People say that they get tired after studying for 15 to 20 minutes. But just imagine when they use their gadgets and are surfing different social media platforms, they never get tired, even after surfing the it for straight 1 hour. Sometimes, they don’t even realise the amount of time they spend on purposeless surfing. Then, how can people give up while studying?

Well, I won’t say surfing social media is a bad thing but just suggest that it shall not become a habit. Social media is one of the biggest distractions but using it productively will be helpful in learning new skills. Also, remember your parents have made plenty of sacrifices just for you to have a better education, so make your parents proud by achieving your goals. Everyone may not be brilliant in academics, but you can learn new concepts and apply it when needed. And just be happy to learn from your mistakes!
