    When you say Tripos papers, do you mean a question or do you mean they want you to sit 5 full exams?!?

    Full papers as in the number of answers you'd write in three hours, or full papers as in everything? (Either's bad - I concur with wibletg...)

    Movie soundtracks with inspiring music (i.e. Dark Knight Rises) are actually really helpful towards revision

    When do everyone's exams start and end?
    27 May-4 Jun.

    At this stage, ****s given = 0. It's not even the blazé "I'll be fine - I've never revised in the past and it's not done me any harm". It's the "I've spent all day staring at my laptop screen and I don't even care what I get any more - I just want it to be over".

    Today's "When in Cambridge" seems particularly appropriate:

    If only it weren't like this:

    More here, for anyone unfamiliar with the site*.



    *Seriously, you haven't come across "When in Cambridge"? Where have you been living, in a cave? :lolwut:

    EDIT: Rant over. How are you?

    Just popped into my head - have you found Marie yet? (Well, not necessarily you, but the corporate you. Just not the corporate you.)

    Also, When in Cambridge is the best. On that theme, this is what the next week will be like.

    I am also reaching the stage where morale is reaching quite a low ebb. I'm just shattered, the department is doing everything it can structurally to stop me getting a good grade, and I've had enough. Solution: more tea.

    No. :sad: I thought I'd seen her the other day and alerted the Chief Kitten Wrangler, but she informed me that the one I'd seen was Millie. You probably know, but a young cat's gone missing from Queens' too, so the two might be connected. (I struggle to see how anyone could catnap Marie though - you rarely see them out during the day, and an older adult (i.e. non-student) should be noticed in the admin staircase where they stay during the day.)

    What is "this"? Panic, or Dumb Ways to Die? :p:

    I'm resorting to parody videos. This one has a law-related slant to it, but I'm sure everyone can empathise with the underlying message.

    Starts on Tuesday the 28th May, ends on Saturday the 1st June. Yep, 7 exams, 5 days (and there's one day with no exams, so it's 7 exams in 4 days really -_-).

    Each one's 2 hours, so it's not quite as bad

    Yes I'm going to miss my friends so much! A couple of people are staying, but we won't all be living together anymore (I'm being horribly grown up and moving in with my boyfriend, eek!)
