    Set time aside, and if you don't have one, get a diary to write all your homework in and when it's due. In my school, they give you one, but I'm not sure how it is elsewhere...

    Oh, yeah an agenda. When I was in the US, we used to get them every year for free, even at my community college. But you don't get them down here, unless you go to a fancy school. I tried finding one, but the Office Depot down here doesn't sell them either. I guess a regular small sized notebook will have to do. I shall take your advise and get organized.

    So recently, I overheard someone at a campus I was visiting mentioning he forgot all about his midterm that was due on the exact time of release of Pokémon X/Y...and had to drop his class as a result. Don't know what class was it, but not my business to know. I was only passing by.

    Avid fans at its finest. I only came there to drop belongings off to a friend that attends there.

    But to that person, seriously - be realistic.

    Unfortunately I'm the same. But with the workload I have, I guess it might not be as much of a bad thing. And on that note, I'm really starting to hate Maths. Having a horrible teacher doesn't help.

    It's the opposite for me. I'm the only one who already had a 3DS and now I have the game.

    I'm technically retired from the Pokémon games, but then again...I could honestly care less about release dates. Nobody would bite if you get the games later on anyway (goes towards other hyped games, too), but I'd rather be productive instead. I do make games as a hobby, however...though I have no intentions to profit from this at the moment.

    Same here lol. Some of the people I talk to at college about Pokemon are probably playing the games right now while I have to wait for a few more days.

    Pokemon Y can be added to my list of procrastinations. I gotta be careful about that. then again, in one weekend I played 3 hours and made it to route 2 while friends are on their way to the Pokémon league (bullkid knows what I mean)

    I second this. Just got the game yesterday and the hours are flying by. Time management skills need to be revived. I'm glad I have no exams any time soon.

    I've come up with a routine to help myself deal with my new arduous term, and it's surprisingly working. I'm taking short five-minute breaks (in fact I'm taking the time from a break to write this!) every single time I finish an assignment. Granted, it isn't the best method, but it's given me less stress than procrastination. I've also taken to just playing X and Y before school and the way home from school, which gives me at least 30 minutes of "playtime" each day. I'm still a freshman though, so it isn't as difficult compared to you guys. My most difficult class is AP Human Geography, though it's pretty fun, I'm learning about so many interesting topics!

    I was supposed to have done a (seven-page) research paper for anthropology, but I never did it, and it's due today, along with presentations. Eff it, I'll take zero for the 250 points I'm going to miss out, even if it means getting yelled at by my parents (whom are also pushing me to apply for an internship even though I need to have samples of animated graphics to send of which I have nothing). I turn everything else in otherwise in that class, and if I get a good score on my final in a few weeks, I'll be able to pass with probably a C.

    I seriously don't care anymore. I'm doing really well in my animation class, but the teacher's rather lax about everything, so that's why I'm doing well. In Visual FX, however, I barely scraped by with a D for midterm. Frigging hate that class... frigging hate everything...

    so I got a 56 in my Calc 3 midterm, and I almost cried from failing it. But then I learned the next day that a 56 is a C for this exam. Gotta love those college curves! But yeah, I'm not trying to get a C in my report card (med school won't give me more than a quick glance), so I have to fix that.

    Hah, so my power decides to go out while I'm doing some of my online college work on their website. Now I got to start all over.

    Which reminds me...I remember a classmate who failed all the midterms and the final and still passed with a B-. Not to forget to mention 51% is a C while a 45% is a C-. So literally, you'd have to get 60% for a B. If this is the case, then I guess the only thing one has to worry about in this teacher's class is to pass all the other assignments other than the midterm/final.

    On midterms, I got a low C on my Physics midterm, but the way the grading scale works, that's actually a B. Kind sucks, but now I know going for a perfect GPA like in high school isn't exactly reasonable anymore. I'm still trying for as high as I can get, but I'm ready to accept a GPA below 4.0 if/when that happens. On the bright side, curves aside, I have a B- in my Calculus midterm, which is better than most. The curves won't even come in until the end of the semester, but I'm satisfied with how my Calculus grade is turning out, for now.

    Alright, one more exam to go and I'm on break. Thankfully I do better in Probability than Physics (Hoping I got a B in that class, but I know I passed). After that, I just have to finish up a 3D modeling assignment and I am home FREE!

    so you're saying the probability of doing better in probability than physics is probable...

    I have today, tomorrow, and part of Sunday to get about 400 pages read and two short papers done, and then I go back to school. This has not been a good break.

    Deadline for uni personal statements is next week, and I haven't even signed up to UCAS yet. As it now transpires that I probably won't be allowed to retake a year if I flunk my A2s, I really need to get a move on if there's any hope of me going to university at all.
