Hello Everyone, A random new person here. Summer months are coming and i wanted to have this on record. Even though i haven't use this site in a long time i wanted to use this site as extra motivation. I really do enjoy the community and my short time on this site. So there is an exam coming up for me that i need to pass that will help me move on with my career goal. I have failed it once already by a little. i needed a 520 to pass and i received a 499. There was a high chance of me failing due to not having learn all the topics that was going to be on the exam. But i was still super motivated in my studies. Though this time i am still doing my studies but not as motivated compared to the first time. In short i am not happy with the effort i am giving. It is not that i am slacking off, it is me not putting in 100% of the effort or 110%. I am currently going at 70-80% effort.

The exam will be either next month or August. I will definitely take it before September. It depends if i need to push the exam date back depending on my studying progress. The thing is if i actually put in 100% effort i am confidently that i will pass and there is a good probability of passing.

If i fail again i will delete my account and never use steamgifts again. I really do enjoy casually sharing games with the community even if i don't know any of you personally. So it will affect me even if it doesn't seem like it will.

I feel doing this will give me some much needed extra motivation.

Also i wanted to give away this game for the longest time ever since it came to steam.

TLDR - Taking an exam soon, if i pass then everything is great, If i fail then good bye steamgifts.

Also if i do pass the exam, i will make a giveaway for the #1 wishlisted game when i get my results and come back.

I am generally curious as the title states, Any plans for the summer?

Note: Thank you all for the comments and support, i do read all of them during my break time even if i don't reply.

Good luck on the exam, I don't do well with academic pressure, even topics about people's exams give me guilty feelings. But it's nice to see you're working towards something and I hope you're getting your extra motivation here :p
As for my summer plans if you really want to know, there aren't really any specific ones but I def. want to spend more time with a friend, maybe go on a little trip to like amsterdam, london, or just the seaside or a lake.. like we did 1-2 years ago when things were.. different :) I want to get out more, that's one thing, even though I hate hot weather.

I know how you feel :/ I feel i am putting %20-30 tho :/

I think it is about believing you did work. Even if you think you can think better, do not think that while entering the exam. Think positive and confident. I really had a great grade in my university exam because i was very relaxed, even tho i didn't know some topics at all. (my score was a lot higher than my friends who worked so hard but stressed about whether they will be able to succeed or not) I hope this helps :/

Thanks for the giveaway by the way :) It is one of my top wishlisted game.

Seems like the only plan when you get older and older. It is a plan nonetheless.

I sincerely hope you can find the motivation to put the effort in and that you pass! Either way, I hope that you do not leave SG, as I enjoy seeing you on the site.

No real plans this summer, just working on the house.

It is something i have to do to pressure myself to give more effort. If there is no risk then i probably won't be motivated to try harder. Now that i committed myself to do this and it is on record, I will follow through with the results. Hopefully i will make it and pass, if not then it is really goodbye.

I see and understand. In that case, I hope you buckle down and pass! It would be a real shame to see you leave, and not because of what you give, or the fact that you make giveaways, but because we would miss you.

In the horrible event that you do not pass, let me take this moment to say: "Goodbye, God bless, and may you and yours have joy, peace, love, happiness, and what you most desire--whether you now know you wish it or not. Peace, my friend. 😀"

Now that's a constructive plan :) Good luck on your exam (and on finding resources to study properly, of course)!

There's nothing interesting to tell about my nearest feature (aside from several concerts and movie premieres), I don't plan to go abroad or do anything noteworthy otherwise. And I'll probably spend a bunch of time with my little devil of a niece and my newborn nephew.

Best of luck to you, but I wouldn't do it that way. Positive reinforcement is MUCH more effective than negative punishments. Promise yourself something you really want (not even a thing, can be a career, life goal, etc.) and that will be much more effective than punishing yourself.

So sayeth some random guy on the Internet, but seriously though there have been studies proving it. Please consider it.

I do agree positive reinforcement would be better but sometimes you need to give yourself a push and risk it. I am pretty sure there are studies that support your statements and i remember reading something that backs up your statement. Going to the extreme sometimes is something i feel i have to do.

Anytime I've messed stuff up in school, it makes it easier not to mess up because I'm already heavily aware of it. Also, you didn't seem too far from the mark you needed so I think you'll do fine.

Props to you for not giving up, with this heat I can't even think properly anymore. I hope I'll be able to go to some place by the sea in august, but things don't look good right now. Good luck with your exam! Think about a whole horde of sgers rooting for you :)

It's good to see you again, even though we have obviously never seen each other before because you are evidently new ^_^

Wishing you the best of motivation, effort and luck, for your exam. Study habits and routines, plenty of rest, relaxation practice... and then the answers will flow from your mind at the right time, as they're all in there.

And behold, for you have completed your post with a casual appearance of Barbie Catherine, for which the cult community is thankful!
