    I've been drinking a fair amount for the last year or so....but I don't go out. I sit and drink beer and work E&M or QM problems. I know, I know....you don't have to say it

    It's the only way to get through that hard classes. Your brain needs a release. Some of the biggest partiers I knew where engineers, science, or design majors.

    Procrastination is good time management - if you put it off 'till the last minute, it only takes a minute to do. Otherwise, I'd spend days on it!

    If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done.

    Except for hammocks.

    That's why I drink, I think....I like physics too much to procrastinate properly, unless I'm lit

    My motto is "Why put off until tomorrow what you can get away with never doing at all"

    I suspect that my problem stems from always having found it really easy to pass. Someone once told me that "51% is too much, and 49% is not enough." Another gem that a doctor once told me: "Never allow uni to interfere with your social life". If I can consistently pass with a few days (or hours) of strategic cramming before essays and exams, then why do any more?

    Of course, an efficient 'purge' afterwards is very important - usually courtesy of a couple of dozen beers (get this crap out of my head!). It's like hitting the reboot button on a computer - it clears the cache and frees up some memory.

    Hmm, I'm liking undergrad more and more from the comments! Although at this point, I am trying to decide whether or not to try and go for the "Take-5" program I want. U of Rochester has an awsome program that lets you come back for a 5th year tuition free, but the only catch is that you can't study anything related to your major.

    Part of the reason that I went to UofR was for the music program (Eastman School of Music), and I think that doing a Take5 for music performance would be awsome. Now if I can get myself to be dedicated enough to do it in a foriegn, non-english speaking country (Berlin, anyone?)

    But for now, calc, physics and chem are the issues at hand. Argg.
