+22% from my last exam!

Don't actually know how I did that, but yeah my teacher seems proud of me as he knows I have huge problems when it comes to studying and it's a good start as computing is fucking hard so all is good.

Last year in this week I had a similar situation. In the start of the week, I didn't have motivation to start working until 4am in the night and then I started to watch AO wildcard playoff. Between Wednesday and Friday, I had only two one-hour nights.

Luckily I was able to do that task.

So true. I've written my longest posts to MTF when I should've been studying for an exam.

Re: Motivation for Tests/ Papers. For all Uni/College/Highschool students.

Today has been wasted... after being productive yesterday .

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

Re: Motivation for Tests/ Papers. For all Uni/College/Highschool students.

Don't choke good sir.

28/05/2016 - The day which proved that Tennis is RIGGED


The game is completely rigged against Federer. Nadal was supposed to be the trojan horse to overtake Federer, but the elites of tennis changed ther mind in early 2012 to Djokovic. If you understand that, then you will understand why modern tennis is completely fixed for Djokovic to win.

If you want to read my entire theory, check here as I'm not allowed to post the truth on MTF: https://twitter.com/SunSeekerSlade

Re: Motivation for Tests/ Papers. For all Uni/College/Highschool students.

I should currently be studying. Exam tomorrow, my toughest course, but it's my 4th exam in 5 days , all I can think about is the feeling that I will have tomorrow when the exam is over and I'm off for almost a month long christmas break

This is so so true Some of my gardening work in the house was done when I should have been studying for my toughest exams. Now in the holiday mood , I cant even bother to find out where the garden is

Federer will win another grand slam.
Cilic is not a one slam wonder.
