It's Cram Week :-(#1
Posted: 12/6/07 at 1:13pm
Maybe this should be on the student boards, but whatever. Is anyone who is in school now experiencing hell week yet? I have two semi-big essays due next week (on Tues. and Wed.), an ad campaign (3 ads) due on Tues., and a test on Wed. My partner for the ad campaign is slacking off so I have to work on it by myself.

And despite all the work I have, I'm posting on here. What's it like for everyone else?

At our school this is the last week before finals. Everyone here refers to it as "dead week." We have classes on Monday and Tuesday next week, Wednesday is "dead day" and then we have finals Thursday-Tuesday the 18th. I'm actually surprised because I haven't had too much to do, but next week when I'm studying for finals is going to be awful.

Oh, I understand. This is also our last week of classes...so by next week, I need to write a 10-page paper on Jon Stewart and rhetoric, learn an entire semester of microeconomics, study for a calculus final, write a 4-page calculus paper (that's right), and study for an art history final. Not fun!

4 finals, all 3 hours long and 100% of my grade.....

cheers to all the students.... as one of my professors put it "don't kill yourself because of finals. put the gun down; it'll work after you get your grades"

of course, this was the man who walked in the finals room in a full grim reaper costume. who said lawyers don't have a sense of humor?

Ohhhh yeah. I had my final dance piece/performance today. I have finals from 8am to 4pm on Monday, and then two more on Tues and Wednesday. I nearly had a mental breakdown yesterday, it was joyous. On top of that I am the assistant stage manager for a high school production of Fame that opens in about a month... If I am still in one piece after next week it will be a Christmas miracle!

Could you cram somewhere else?

It's leaving a stain.

On the board.


This should be on the student page because the adults don't care.

THEN DON'T OPEN THE THREAD.

Problem solved.

But you did open the thread AND you posted, so obviously you do care.

We can cram wherever we like. It's OT, after all.

And I commiserate with everyone who's overloaded right now. I have so many projects and papers now - and midterms just around the corner.

Some students who don't particularly mind this thread don't happen to find endless audition threads very compelling, and thus don't exactly frequent the student board. re: It's Cram Week :-(

I just finished writing a 17 page paper and making a corresponding Power Point presentation... to be handed in and given at 9:00 tomorrow morning. Wooo.

Other than that, this week has been tolerable. Last week, though, I spent three days straight, nearly every waking moment, writing a section of my thesis. I ended up skipping two full days of classes just so I could hole myself up in the library and write. It was the most exhausting thing I've ever written. 27 pages later, I felt like a vegetable. And it felt amazing.

I had another giant paper due two days later, and so I completely crashed at the end of the week, and came down with a cold. Yay school.
A work of art is an invitation to love.

Really.

Honestly....... ...... why must you be negative ALL the time?? It's not cute or funny.

"I am currently back in LA. I've been doing theatre for my entire life. I've been on hit TV shows and in Major Motion Pictures."

AKA: Your a sad, over the hill wanna be actor who is bitter at the world cause he didnt make it in acting so had to make cheesy wigs and do extra work to get by. How is doing extra work for a living?I hear it pays ****. It must be touph living paycheck to paycheck. I guess I would be a bitter bitch too if I had to live the ****ty life you have.I always did feel bad for old single queens.





Geez, you don't even know what you are talking about. I make a very good living designing those 'cheesy wigs'.

And how is a base pay of over $300.00 for my last job considered '****' pay? And considering I sat there and did nothing for 12 hours, I think I made more money in that one day, than you will this week.

Until you know what you are talking about, shut it.

And don't bother PMing me your little rants. I'll just post them here as well..

loser
