Dumb Things College Students Do #6

I hope you guys learn from my mistakes. When you are writing an essay, do NOT, i repeat, DO NOT underestimate the amount of time the citations and references will take. ESPECIALLY when you procrastinated on your paper and need every last second to do it.

Citations take a long time, the longer your paper the longer it will take. In retrospect it would be easier to just do it as you write your paper, but you don’t know what you want to keep and delete and all that jazz. So, I reiterate, do NOT underestimate the amount of time it will take to clean your paper up. The best thing to do is finish your essay early …. ha if only

Back from the Dead – Thoughts on how time passes

Hey guys, I’m finally back from the dead, I haven’t posted in a few months because school is getting out of hand. Well maybe not school, time. Time is getting out of hand, my hand to be exact. It is quite hard to grab something you can’t see, time, opportunities, courage. These are things that you don’t notice are gone or lacking until you look back.

It is strange, if you think throughout the day about how much work you have to do and how much time you have to do it…I should not be up at 4 in the morning. But here I am, and I DON”T KNOW WHERE MY TIME WENT.

I’ll find a system, I’ll make it work, and i’ll let you guys in on the secret. In the meantime i’m creating a new tag called “Where did the time go?” When I’m up at 4 in the morning, this is what i’m sure EVERYBODY is thinking about (unless you got a paper due in class, then maybe you’ll be thinking about the paper). I’m sure this tag count will go up like crazy, maybe the first 5 of them should be facebook facebook facebook facebook facebook. What a nice way to keep in touch of friends? What a goddamn waste of time ( this should be another post for itself, another time perhaps). The first step to solving any problem, is admitting it and finding the cause.

Just a tip: do NOT wear contacts if you are going to stay up late studying at the library.

When you wear contacts into the night staring at a screen/book your contacts get dry. When your contacts get dry, your instinct is to close them. When you close your eyes, you want to sleep. But you can’t sleep because you have work to do, so you stare at your screen/ book and get back to work. This makes your contacts more dry, which leads to more eye closing, which leads to more wanting to sleep… ext ext ext this vicious cycle continues until you fall asleep (pass out), or go back home and get glasses. Either way you are not getting work done.

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately! I’ve been super busy, but I always see the silver lining, and will most probably cross spend an entire night at the Ugli off my bucket list.

College Thinking #4

Snow, it is a love hate relationship. I am so excited we finally get some snow, it just doesn’t seem like a real Michigan winter without that fresh blanket of snow in the morning. Now I can finally cross those … Continue reading
