Fooling myself

Posted 03-23-2012 at 03:02 AM by TheIndependentAquarius
Updated 03-23-2012 at 03:19 AM by TheIndependentAquarius

Another problem that I have is that I keep on talking to
myself by visualizing the things that happened in my
Example - Last week I somehow remembered a big incident
that happened in my life 8 years ago when I was in college.

	void setRollNumber (int rollNum)
	    rollNumber = rollNum;
