"The Magic Number 187" #Macroeconomics
Those who know me personally from my undergrad days can recall that I have a bad habit of writing fresh notes of class lectures at home. While doing it and spending so much time preparing the fresh notes in good legible handwritting, I have received both appreciation and taunts. However, the taunts never gave rise to the desire in me to stop spending time writing notes since the valuable time spent writing them helps me remember the lessons better and cuts down my preparation time ahead of the exams.
Now, comes the actual reason behind putting up this status update. Recently, I started writing notes for my masters macroeconomics core course and at the end of almost 4 months of rigorous lecture attendance and the fresh note writings that followed, I just noticed that the last page of my fresh note bears a "page number of 187." Alhamdulillah, the effort paid rich dividence in terms of the final grade. #Motivation #notboasting
