Right now my craving for summer is so big that there's no way I'll be able to concentrate on reading for the exams for at least a couple of days. That however doesn't mean I won't be trying. Today i spent about an hour trying real hard to read but because of my lack of concentration I ended up reading the same sentences over and over again (and still didn't quite internalize them), and ultimately got two pages further. It's not that psychology isn't interesting, I actually find it very fascinating, it's just that when I'm excited about something and basically think about it 24/7 it's very hard for me to just shut it out of my mind and focus on something else. I've been hyped ever since I found out that Two Door Cinema Club is going to perform at Ruisrock (a Finnish music festival). And yesterday I received a very eager phone call from my boyfriend telling me that M83 and Justice are going to be at another festival here in Finland this summer. As if that wouldn't be enough I love pretty much everything that has to do with summer so I seriously can't wait for the snow and ice to melt and the temperatures to rocket through spring. My train of thought while studying is more or less like this "...alright, so, cognitive dissonance is a feeling of unpleasant arousal caused by - SUMMER, SUMMER, TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB, SUMMER, M83, JUSTICE, SUMMER, SUN, SUN, SUN"!
I really do wish it was summer already. And it's somewhat depressive that there's almost three months left to go. Therefore I'm lucky to have other cheery (in a much smaller scale, though) things in my life. Like having a girls night out today! Or being the lucky winner of this really sweet giveaway hosted by Lija from The Fashion Skeleton. This is actually the fourth time I win a giveaway and I'm starting to think I should play the lottery. Anyhow, my point is that sometimes even I forget the little things while fantasizing about stuff that's out of my hands. So instead of whining about it I've decided to enjoy what I have. Maybe that'll improve my concentration as well...or not.
