  The write way to study!
Hello boys and girls out there in blogland,

I studied more today than I have for some two weeks! I'm feeling so nice and relaxed. A lot of the anxiety I'd felt over the last two weeks has dissolved. Whew! I feel I've turned the corner and am truely on the road to lasting recovery now.

I decided in the morning that I would condense the text I was reading by transcribing the salient points into notes. I found that writing the stuff down actually made me move faster. I would read the text, decide what was important and what I could do away with, then I'd write them down in my own words. And I didn't get very tired either. I was actually enjoying myself a little bit. I'm going to tackle the rest of the course this way as well. Write write write. While at first, writing stuff down might seem like the slower way to go, it actually speeds things up.

I didn't study that much today - about 7 hard hours. But that's more than what I've done in 2 weeks. Tomorrow I'll aim for 10 hours and then a study 12 hours thereafter. Wish me luck!
