One Of My Biggest Study Distractions

This semester is almost over and we want you to pass this semester with flying colours. For this reason, I thought I’d share with you all, one of my biggest study distractions and provide you with a solution on how to handle it. So read on and may the odds be ever in your favour!

Distraction 1) Facebook: Ah Facebook where would we be without you? Facebook is a great means to bring us together no matter how far away we may be! Despite all the wonderful things Facebook has done for us, Facebook can also be a Weapon Of Mass Distraction (W.M.D). When it comes to studying to Ace the semester, Facebook does a wonderful job of distracting us from our semester often without us knowing!

Despite its powerful ability to distract, it is relatively easy to snap out of Facebook’s distractive trance and refocus your attention back on your semester.

The solution is none other than Facebook! You can easily turn Facebook from a hindrance to one of your greatest assets for acing your semester. Creating study groups, Study private message group chats, Creating study events, scheduling your major assignments and exams as events are some ingenious yet simple ways to turn Facebook into a means for organizational planning as well as a way for coordinating with your friends and classmates to enhance your performance to pass your semesters with flying colours!

Kenny Conextus Team Spotlight

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

We confess – we love pretty things. Whenever we needed a beautiful website banner or poster, Kenny is the one person we could always rely on.

Even though he is living the life after university, we caught up with him so he could fill out this simple and fun questionnaire that will give you a better idea of who he is.

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?

I want to travel the world and get a glimpse of all the unique cultures, cuisines, individuals, and activities. The first destination would be to explore countries that make up Europe. However, time is always holding me back.

What is your most memorable moment at SFU?

No one can forget the moment you walk across the stage at Convocation Mall and see the crowd of family and classmates in front of you. It is as if time slows down in that moment.

What does Conextus mean to you?

An outlet to express myself in a unique way and to make a difference in the world.

What song are you jamming to these days?

I am good with any music that has a good beat to it.


“Do I look serious enough?”

What is your guilty pleasure?

It must be the high metabolism, but I’m blessed with the powers of not gaining weight regardless of how much I eat. Because of this, I tend to eat a host of different kinds of food. Nothing specific – anything that is yummy.

If you could invite anyone (fictional or not) to your party, who would it be? What do you think would happen?

I would invite Jesus. It is hard to say what would happen if he showed up, but it would no doubt be an interesting night. Maybe – just maybe – he will show me how he turned water into wine.
With Conextus, we are looking to change the social community at SFU. Through our own experience and of many other student’s, isolation is rampant on campus. We want to connect students with new friends and squads. We want to connect students with new activities through student clubs and events. Look out for us to make SFU more social.
