    End of the Term

    OK, it's gotten to the point where it's driving me crazy. 10 more lab assignments and 8 more papers to write before next week, and then final exams. I'm really starting to lose my ability to concentrate on school work, like I have no idea which way to go to get it all done.



    Anybody else?

    Yup, I don't have it as bad as you, but I'm feeling the crunch.

    2 Econ projects due this week, Physics test, AP Stats test, damn college apps are due Friday, then in 2 weeks is finals.

    Spending time posting to BF is a good start.

    Seriously...do the most important stuff first. Go for the points and grades first. If you miss a 10 point lab, will it really hurt your overall grade? Those are the ones to save for last.

    Part of college is learning what has to get done and what you can skate. It will come in handy in the real world work force.

    Just start cranking away getting those papers done! Don't lose sleep over it, or all your work will go downhill even quicker. Unless you are really good at functioning when you are sleep-deprived, you will be in abysmal condition for your finals, and I'll bet they make up a LARGE part of your grade.

    Good Luck.

    Git Er Done. No compromises. Dont spend too much time on the stuff you like! Labs are always easy so get some momentum going and 3 lab assignments, then do 3 papers, do 3 more labs, do 4 papers, 4 labs and 2 papers in the finishing stretch.

    Congrats, and 32 isn't old...is it?
    Damn if all that wasn't enough the pc shut down twice in a row from a thermal fault almost as soon as I posted this thread.

    I'm on the other end. Lots of grading to get done in the next few weeks.

    Also not as bad as you: Three papers, one speech, one collection of stuff with topics for pysch and 56 hours/week of work. The only thing I am dreading is this 6 page paper for sociology which is not even that bad. End of term laziness ftl.

    i think i should note that this is one of the reasons why i never take more than 4 classes at a time. i don't know how you people handle 5 and 6 classes. not only would it strain my budget to do so, hell, 4 classes strain my budget, it would be very hard for me to keep track of all of them. how do you do it?

    We're bored and have no life. It's something do do after spending time at work and with the family.
