Slacking off

I have been slacking off a lot lately. Watching tv series, sleeping (a lot!), facebooking. Time to get serious. This week I am supposed to meet my supervisor. But since she is not around, oh well, I am enjoying my time, although that I am not supposed to do so.

Still have a lot to read. Have to discipline myself more. Aziz, go read all the journals please! before its too late..

hemm... remind me of something.

@ Mdm Dilla - such as?

1- Read with a purpose in mind.
i.e What are you actually looking for? To understand the theory? To find out the method that paper is investigating? To find out whether that paper backs up/ againts your hypothesis?
For a start, it is great if you write down the purpose of your reading. Put it in front of you so your mind won't wander off.

2- Skim through before you actually read it.You may find that the paper is not worth your reading time, or you canjust pick and choose the section that really matters to you. OR if the paper is really superb (like it is a masterpiece in the field), you may want to read the whole paper.

hope this help :) Just let me know if you need more info. Glad to be of help
