How's that essay coming along? When did you start revising this morning?

Monday - 2 hours
Tuesday - 1 hour
Wednesday - 7 hours

I'm aiming for 40 hours this week
Badly - still reading. I'm not going to sleep until I've done at least 1000 words though.

9am - had lectures though and then took hours off :facepalm: I'm gonna need to use ColdTurkey to get the hours you've been getting in recently!

I'm sure you'll be fine. When's the deadline for it? What's the word limit?

I never do any work after lectures so can't blame for taking long breaks today

I'm at home for 2 weeks so need revise everything before my first exam on the 23rd because I have barely done anything until now. What does ColdTurkey do?

Why did you get negged for this?!? The deadline's 5pm tomorrow and 2500.
That's when my first exam is and yeah I've done very little too!


ColdTurkey is a blocking software that I have yet to get around - it is very, very strict - and that's saying something because I can normally get around these things quickly, such is my procrastination. I've blocked TSR etc now so am posting from my phone which bugs me so I barely use it

I might try getting that. Switch off your phone and finish your reading.

You aren't going to be revising at your full potential at this time of the evening, so I'd recommend going to the cinema. It'll allow you to relax and take your mind off exams for a few hours!
Yeah i decided to actually go in the end and watch Attack of the Block- for them 90 minutes my head was exam/revision free. Its a shame it had to end, oh well.

Ok so 4 hours done today, yep im slacking.
Im going to do 7 hours tomorrow.
Feel free to verbally abuse me if i dont.

Thanks! It was alot of hard work, but I guess it'll all be worth it when it's over. I think the fact that there are other people are putting in the effort, which makes you more motivated to complete the challenge. Trust me, I've never done that amount of extensive revision before but it feels good, so I urge everybody to just try it atleast for this week anyway before exams
your welcome definatly, we're a team lol. i have a lot of hours still to put in so im going to go do some hardcore revising!

I'm not going to lie, I failed last week and probably shall this week as well. I am a master at distracting myself, and finding a whole heap of new awesome songs has been my undoing. I must leave TSR if I want any chance of passing. No more TSR for me!!

It's okay! You can do it this week Maybe you're not taking regular enough breaks and getting bored? TSR can be useful if you stick around stuff like the Summer Revision Thread or the Uni Study thread

Well, my degree says it should be a full time working week but to keep up I really should be doing about 60 hours. ..I really do not get physics.

I suppose. Next week will be better, I know that much. Study leave and two exams to study for, it's all good. Next week I will succeed! You're right, I probably am. I'm like "I'll revise for four hour straight!" *15 minutes in...oooh lookie, more Doctor Who videos, I'll just watch one...ooh, this one looks funny...:lol:

Let's see... I started at 9am, had an hour's break... So I've done 6-7 hours today. On very little sleep. And all my clocks are wrong. I know it was light outside when I woke up :erm: I think.
