I Am So Sick of Studying !!! Aaarrrggghhhh !!!!

  1. Ok, now that I've gotten that off my chest, back to the books.



    Actually, I'm a little aggravated because yesterday a classmate claimed they only need to study two hours before a test and that they still get A's.

    I don't know if it's really true or not (you know how people BS about these things.)

    But, as I'm facing yet another weekend glued to the books instead of swimming in my pool (where I want to be) the remark sticks in my mind. I WISH it would only take two hours tops for me to study for a test and do well.

    Such is my lot in life. BTW, if you're going to post that you're a particularly brilliant student with a photographic memory that aces every test with minimal study time, please don't. I'm already depressed.

    (Just kidding, sort of.)

    It will be over soon. There are always those who claim they don't have to work at their grades, who knows what's true and what isn't. You're doing great! I know how you feel, I too am busy studying statistics and world populations, like I could really care when the sun is out and it's so pretty here in the south this time of year. And it's always harder when studying something that has nothing to do with what you'll do with your degree!!!!!!! AAUUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH!

    I have lost all ambition to study. A class mate and I are having a cram session at my house on Monday for our A&P exam. I told her I would make sure to have a 2 liter of pepsi for her and she said " better make it margaritas" LOL

    Well, I guess all we can do is whine since I can't drink wine, or margaritas, for that matter. :chuckle

    Oh ... how tempting. A drink sounds really good right now. But the day would be shot and I can't risk even a slight hangover. Makes my brain fuzzy.

    All of this discipline better be worth it!

    Hey, margaritas sound GREAT!! :chuckle

    I *have* to finish a 7pg paper today and send it in, but my beloved Red Sox are just pounding the Yankees, so that won out!

    I'll be busy tonight though!

    Lizz, there's a student in my class that always claims to have "forgotten" that we even have a test therefore she didn't study AT ALL, and yet aces every test. I don't buy it for a minute.

    Some people will do anything for attention, it seems.

    An A in nursing? I did not think that ever happened - didn't in my college I can tell you that much.

    Anyway keep hitting the books, the end is near. Soon it will be all over and you can start studying for state boards (breeze after nursing school) and start raking in the big bucks (they actualy seem big for one year after graduation!~). Good luck all that are studying hard.

    lizz, I too feel your pain, I am also one of those people who needs to give up my entire life to study for tests. I have poor reading comprehension skills, so I make up 4x6 note cards for everything. It is very time consuming but the only way I can get things to stick. I am struggling to maintain a very low 'B' in my Psych class, and there is a girl in there who told us today this class is so easy for her, and she is so disappointed that she is .5% away from her 'A'. She stated if she doesn't get her usual 'A' she is going to be a B**ch for the entire summer semester. She also tends to brag that studying is not something she needs to spend much time on. But I have to tell you there are more of us out there than there are of them. Hang in there it will all be over soon!
