stubborn persistence, finals week, and the inevitable last-minute cramming because you’d rather play video games all weekend and study the day before the test. And the procrastination even then. The tiny, pointless observations that stem from eyes wandering from page after page of inexplicably boring information. Why would a company have a “patent pending” on the design of a trashcan? Why would a bacterial host cell not detect an integrated bacteriophage chromosome and excise it before replication? Why does Taco Bell sound so much more appetizing the longer studying has taken place? So much futility, and so much self-directed frustration at knowing this point would come and not doing anything to prevent it.

I need tacos.

  1. Do the logical thing. Give up. Drop out. And live in a van DOWN BY THE RIVER!

    Man, I still have like 3 or 4 weeks left before finals. Don(is it everyone or is it only I who cannot type single quotes in these text boxes?)t worry your pretty little head, I don(fuck this)t plan on studying until the day before and perhaps the day of my tests. (Typing single quotes is making me do a quick find. It is pissing me off. I think it is mozilla or this new keyboard i got.)

  2. I think I speak for everyone when I say, Why isn’t tards inc. working hard enough to come out with new MBCG games. I mean come on, that’s why we’re here.

  3. study!? i scoff at the word. i havent studied since middle school. i am completely content with sinking to mediocrity. my real problems do begin untill i start accumulating projects to put into my final portfolio. and by the way, i have seen the face of god, and odly enough its on my 360. its name you may ask… gears of war.

  4. I’ve been playing Gears of War since Friday – great game, and why I didn’t study until yesterday.

    Unfortunately, my chosen vocation isn’t very accessible to those who don’t make time to study. Stupid system.
