    UGH I am so tired, but I can't naaaap

    I have class registration at 5 and then once I am done with that I am meeting with friends for dinner and then we are seeing a movie and I still need to finish the fafsa

    and I am so tired. Not as in, too sleepy to fucntion properly, but tired in that your eyes feel all weird and your face and head has this sort of weird pressure to it.

    :(

    greeeat there's only one setup for doing this lab

    and the data analysis is due tomorrow

    and I haven't done the lab because of the depressions

    But I can't do it right now because someone is already there

    The guy is a total douche so I doubt he has a real excuse like me

    should I stab him so I can get my work done?

    Yes. Stab away!

    Is there not enough room for more than one person to work in the lab? That's kind of crap.

    There's only one set of equipment for each experiment.

    I really meant not to be a piece of shit but then I had a breakdown.

    I'd really rather not have to cry to the professor, so hopefully they'll be finished in a couple of hours.

    First thing, try not to be so hard on yourself. You're not a piece of shit because you're struggling with something.

    Depression is a serious health issue that your school should be aware of and hopefully your professors will be reasonable and make appropriate allowances.

    Have you talked to anyone at your school about your problems?

    Stupid registration. Somehow I keep getting really awful registration dates. I've avoided it thus far but I am going to need to crash because nothing is open. My roomies have too given up and are just going to crash . . . I really need to book an appointment with a counselor again.

    Oh no, I'm much too proud for that.

    I'm way too cool to use depression as an excuse.

    So I just found out I have two assignments due tomorrow night in my Brit Lit class.

    Because apparently having an essay due Sunday and a midterm due Wednesday night isn't enough work for a short week before spring break, so she decided to toss in a regular assignment load on top of that.

    ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

    Eh, I still do that. I waited until the day of to whip together my first essay for Brit Lit, got a 92. Did the same for my presentation in hardware/software, got a 94.

    Hard to stop doing it when it keeps working. Maybe if this second essay has a bad grade are start caring, but virtually every assignment I've had this semester has been completed within twelve hours of the deadline. Except Linux, because I've got so much time to work on it in class.

    it's the professor's fault for assigning a six page paper

    how am I supposed to get worked up about that
    that's a blurb

  • ToxTox I kill threads Pharezon's human garbage heapRegistered User regular
    Seriously, I sit down to write a 3 page essay and all of a sudden I have four and a half pages and I haven't even really gotten to the point of the paper. So I have to go back and hack'n'slash half of it and then quickly wrap it up.

    Also what the hell is with instructors assigning things with a maximum length and not a minimum?

    Hardware/software presentation was supposed to be 5 min long, then it becomes "don't go over 5 minutes or we won't have enough time." and I'm like, should I just say "this is a hard drive." "this is a sata drive." "this is a ssd." "what are your questions?" ?

    Man I wish I was like this in college; writing five or more pages was a god damn misery

    Five years later, if I'm concentrating even a little (read: not posting here) I can hose words like nobody's business (when what I really need to do is shut the hell up and get to the point)

    Fuck you! You're probably a business major anyway!

    Basically the calendar is set up so that each color group is a specific class, with the multiple instances (a, b, c, etc) being different timeslots of the same class

    So the first thing I have to do is figure out which French class I want to take, as those three are the only ones with the Instructors I want, from there the priority is split between everything equally, since they all fall in to major requirements.

    I'd kill for a B in anything at this point.

    you should suck up to your profs more

    finals are an exercise in telling your profs what they already think in a clear and concise manner

    in other words it's a completely pointless exercise without application outside of politics

    The 9:00-9:50 French class is by far the most desirable one, if I get it then I can rock a super easy 17-credit semester

    Could probably pull 21, I really think I could pull 21 credits. May as well sign up for 21 if I can, then decide what to drop.

    shocking

    the only A+ I ever got was in a class called "Intellectual Property and Human Rights Law"

    I spent most of the time in class explaining why I thought the concepts he was proposing were total garbage

    then I wrote my final and just repeated his arguments back to him, pretending I thought they were at all legitimate, raising only the meekest version of my actual counterarguments

    I had to drink an entire six-pack over the course of the six-hour take home exam period, but by god I got that shit done

    My highest grade was in my Commercial Law class, my first A+

    I did what you did in class and wrote it down

    And since my arguments were incredibly well articulated

    Got an A+

    Shocking (and rare)

    I don't really doubt the existence of profs that will grade a well-written exam that they disagree with highly

    but it's just so much fucking easier to tell them what they want to hear as clearly and concisely as possible

    Easier I guess sorta?

    Most I knew would sniff that out and just grade your test harder

    They looked more for consistency in your arguments/beliefs and articulation than sucking their collective grimy old cocks.
