To people who have given attempt(s) before , how did you deal with illness during prep? I lose too much time because something or the other keeps happening ... I barely read the newspaper today and get very demotivated because I am falling behind and my plans are not working out because I keep getting sick

All this while I have been at home. So, it is not Delhi😅.

Simply not study as even if I try to my mind does not work plus feel demotivated. 

So focus on giving rest to your body and let it heal. The quicker it heal the quicker you can get back to studies. Sleep as much as you can or catch up with some tv series, etc.

(And then i promise myself i will not slack off much when i get better)

That's what i do. Get well soon.

Hey everyone. 

After attending SFG 1 and 2, it was yesterday that I learnt how to talk to people on thread. (facepalm)

I am pretty introvert, so never befriended anyone during foundation course, but it's high time I come out of my shell. Could you please help me with how peer groups are formed? I have no wild knowledge about group studies. After getting ditched by prelims this year, I am planning to take Sociology as optional. It would be kind of you if you help me keep my baby steps. Also, one last query, how are peer groups managed when some people are not based in Delhi? I'm currently in ORN but planning to go back home for solace and good food. I can't without it. 

Forum threads were a saviour. I found really good friends on this platform. Daily thread was honestly popping in 2021 with everyone sharing their routines, sukh-dukh, tiny moments of joy, learnings and advice, material, food pics et al. So even though I hadn’t met anyone personally there was always a place I knew that I could pour out my worries without any hesitation :)

Though I could not clear the prelims this year, being a silent member of this community helped a lot. A special thanks to@LetsGetThisBread. Your posts on the one thing you learnt from your prelims failure thread was so very helpful. ( I'm not able to turn these bold letters off). 

Anyway, though it was a little heartbreaking to see the result after all my efforts, I want to give my 100% to 2023. Hoping all you lovely people can guide me with your experience as always. 

PS- I want to give a special thanks to this community as a whole. Though I could not clear and have never been an active member, this site has been so good for my mental health, knowing that you're not alone in feeling helpess/hopeless/lazy or any of the countless other feelings and things that you go through on this journey and as a part of the journey of life as well. 

So, here's to 2023. Hoping to give it all that I have 

Heheh not being able to turn off the bold letters after tagging a person is so relatable 😐
