I'm peppering myself for a 10% mark tomorrow [absolutely serious]. No need for revision for something worth 3% lawl.

I go for all my lectures, even the shit boring ones, unless I have something more important to do, like watch Roger at the WTF (serious). I don't know why. I guess I hope that by attending, something would register somehow and I wouldn't be totally lost? Even though I get so bored that I start surfing MTF on my phone halfway through. The Finnish way makes more sense.

I am having trouble focusing now because I don't have anything to drink but tapwater in my apartment and there also isn't much to eat. However, I don't feel like going to get anything because it is dark and snowing
So really, I'm just sitting here wasting time wishing I had something to drink

Followed this advice and absolutely owned my exam paper on Friday, would be surprised if I got anything under 85%, which should mean at least an A.

Makes me feel sick that the one exam I actually study for is the one I'll no doubt get the best grade in, should have somehow forced myself to even greater limits to study last year!

Good to hear kind sir. Keep it up all, remember, vigor, courage, strength, will power.

Nothing but greatness for everyone here.

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.

No, it doesn't make sense. I would rather lose a day of my life to some stupid project, than lose parts of two days. It makes more sense to just get it all out the way tomorrow. I can do three hours at school and three hours at home and then it will all be done, no problem. I'm going to enjoy this evening, without any worry.

I think I got 1 A, and 3 B's this semester. 3.25 GPA is not so bad, but hopefully that one teacher doesn't fuck with me like last semester when he gave me a C+.

I am a huge procrastinator, yes.

It's a report and presentation for physics, and it counts for 10% of my final grade, so quite important. I'm not too worried about the presentation, I can blag my way through it and get good marks for my charisma and enthusiasm. However, I'm not looking forward to the effort that needs to be put into this stupid report. 4000 words.

Same here I'm good at speaking, but I have trouble structuring essays and stuff. I never prepare much for presentations.

Not sure if anyone on here knows what an Actuary is/does, but I'm studying to be one and tomorrow I sit for my second exam. It's been about 2 weeks straight of 5 hours a day to prepare for that, and it's on top of taking 18 credits this semester. So I take the exam tomorrow, drive 3 hours back to school, sleep, cram for an Earth Sciences midterm, take that at 8 on Tuesday, study for Financial Math midterm, take that Thursday, then 4 finals next week. Needless to say, I'm in need of some motivation currently.

The only way to handle it . Most of time when I'm at school, I play pool . Enjoy the social aspect. And of course I do group assignments there. But I study at home a lot. And besides, when you're taking as many classes as I am, I would go crazy if I went to all of them, especially since a lot of them overlap

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

Big assignment due in Friday, haven't even started. Then an exam next tuesday, a term paper due in early January, then only a 6-month thesis to go for my M.Sc. title, finally.

Turns out absolutely nobody in my class has done this project, so we're going to stall it for another week. Teacher can't really punish if the whole class hasn't done it.
