I have a midterm in 2.5 hours. I have yet to start studying.
-I need to stay at work for the next 0.5h
-It’ll take me another 0.5h to get home
-Where I’ll spend 0.75h shoveling nutrition and caffeine into my maw
-That leaves 0.25h for me to put my notes in the right order, hoping that through osmosis, some of the information on them will seep into my brain
-Then I’ve got 0.5h to get to class and hope I’m smart enough to keep pulling this off
Some days I almost (almost, not quite) wish I weren’t as smart as I am. You see, I’ve never actually learned how to study. So I just don’t. Grad school has never been in the plans, so I did enough to get by with my 3.25, and was happy with it.
One of these days my lack of studying is going to seriously bite me in the ass. Will today be that day?
UPDATE: (8:50pm) I have not lost the magic. The amount of information I retained was just right. I’m still safe… for now…
