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

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┬ávicious cycle continues until you fall asleep (pass out), or go back home and get glasses. Either way you are not getting work done.

Perfect.

So apparently super glue and duct tape does NOT fix everything. Yea..sorry guys, it was hard for me to believe too. This is our couch after we tried to fix it with duct tape and super glue. Welcome to the my janky college sad-excuse-for-a-place-to-sit couch.

After of course, we discovered it was not the smartest idea to do that…it took about 3 days to fall apart into Continue reading
