For the past few weeks, I have been trying to review the math courses I've taken over past two years. All I can really do, though, is just read over the chapters. I acknowledge that the only way to actually (re)learn the material is to do the problems. I always tell myself that I can do it in my head and be done with it, but that's just the laziness talking on my part. But there's something else that makes studying on my own hard--studying alone. I have never been good at studying alone. The thought of it just makes me nervous and unwilling to grab a pencil and paper. I don't know why; it just does. It was okay when I was still in school and studying in the undergraduate lounge where everyone else was studying. But now, I cannot bring myself to concentrate on the material. And now that I've left school, I've no one to study with. I don't know if I can continue focusing at this rate. I'm just so very terrible at studying on my own; the solitude unnerves me far too much.
