First of all, there is no such thing as stress. Stress is merely a scapegoat of your mind created to divert your attention from the actual problem. You must solve your work using your mental strength, inner power, only. Above all, do not let your desire for progress or grades interfere with your gaining of knowledge.

Therefore, I have arranged for you a list of hints that may help you achieve wisdom:

1.Always sign your name in extravagant cursive. Add plenty of middle initials to make yourself look sophisticated. Preferably, also tag your name with a label that says “Man of Mystery” or “Future Billionaire”. It will impress your professors. If they are young and female, it is advisable to put “Future Porn Star” instead.
2. You know that girl who always asks personal questions to the professor? Listen to them. They are always right.
3. There will come a time when you will be too lazy to do your homework assignment. Do not argue, it will happen. When the prof asks you in class why you did not finish it, reply that you were busy with other things. When they ask what, simply raise your eyebrows and give them a mysterious smile. They will not question you again.
4. You have an exam tomorrow, yet you do not have enough time to study. What do you do? Simply place the textbook under your roommate’s pillow as they sleep and whisper random passages from the book into their ear. When they wake up, Voila!, they have it all memorized. Voodoo magic? I do not know, but it works every time.
5. If you have a question, ask the girl who always talks about her personal life with the professor. She is always right.
6. Citing your work for research projects can be difficult. Therefore, just make up bullshit citations containing lots of fancy names and “.edu” for websites. (Hint: the article/book is always published in New York). It is rumored that having a quote from MTF gives you an extra 10 points.
7. When writing essays, the title should always be named after your eldest aunt. Furthermore, the text should always be triple-spaced and the font should be Wingdings. When your professor will inevitably blow up over the “nonsensical craps students come up with”, chide him by saying “We’re in the 21st century bro. It’s not my fault I’m more hi-tech than you!”
8. Above all, keep in mind that your inner thirst for knowledge is a stronger force than your outer feelings about grades. Try your best to learn, and you can achieve anything.

Lenders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.

This needs a bump. Been on a hiatus from MTF for school. Today is a 12hour day for school. Wish me luck *salute* :]

I have less than 48 hours to complete 6 hours' worth of work which I haven't started yet. I got given the assignment over two months ago, but I've waited to the last minute as always.

Yeah some courses are annoying like that. I have a course on Linear Programming where we have homework twice a week and if you do it all, you can get 5% extra to the grade . Exam is 75% and two project works are 25% (which are about solving linear programming problems using different software, such as Matlab, by writing the proper code). Fortunately they are not mandatory but it's very demotivating . Especially when the homework has excercises like this:

Quote:
Show using the unit cube {x € Rn| 0 <= xi <= 1, i = 1 . . . , n} that the number of extreme points can grow exponentially with respect to n. If there are n = 100 variables, how long would it take from a machine that goes through 10^9 extreme points per second to go through all the extreme points of this unit cube?
And that one is one of the easier ones, once you get how to think of it it becomes obvious... Might take a while to get it though

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

They're meant to be for practice. I half-arsed 3 out of 3 so far but I feel really guilty about it. And I'm really nervous to see how badly I did, especially for my favourite course.

What's the point of having exams that count for only 5% though?

Yeah I get that . We have a few Asians like that in our school . Us Finns are different, most of us skip all lectures unless they offer real value and really weigh effort/reward tradeoffs
