Although it might be worth only partying hard once a week, and easing off a bit on the other nights so you're not totally hungover while trying to work!
.....and you call yourself a student :rolleyes: :p:

I'm not really a party hard kind of girl, but as with anything, the key is organisation and time management. If you do a science course with lots of contact hours, you probably won't have that much to do outside of them anyway, but when you do, you could just work for a couple of hours after dinner or something. For arts courses with fewer contact hours, use your time off during the day to get your work done. That should leave most evenings and weekends relatively free, apart from around coursework deadlines and exams.

My work ethic has always been shocking. My school reports from the age of 6 have said "Proton Boy is a bright lad, but could do better if he showed any application". I really want to rectify this next year but I don't know how really. It's just seems to be a fundamental part of the way I operate as a person, muck about and procrastinate and then blitz it right at the end. Last year most of my essays were written the night before, one finished after a 6 hour work session at 7.30am in the morning and handed in an hour and a half later. I actually think next year might be a bit easier in this regard, having to actually travel to uni to work rather than just rolling out of bed 10 minutes before lecture/seminar will actually put some structure into my study life and maybe help me concentrate a bit.

Still plan to party harder than anyone in Brighton, Britain or on TSR though :eek:

party harder than you study. youve only got a few years where it's acceptable to get lashed every night and have as much casual sex as you want. make the most of it.

The real problem is when you realise you've done neither. That was my 2nd year - very little work, and it wasn't even that I was having much fun either.

If you're reasonably intelligent, you can get through a degree (with good marks) without doing all that much work.

I was on quite a demanding course hours-wise, bu found if I got on with the work, a night out/pub trip/cinema/meal out/party was an excellent motivator to start concetrating and stop faffing about on the internet!
I agree with that. Action inspires action, etc... it's the lazing about that really should be cut out for me.

I do EXACTLY that! For most of my A-level 'revision' I would just have a text book open while faffing around with nothing important for an hour and then convince myself I needed a break! lol

To the OP, to be honest I think the best way is to just not buy a computer. I didnt have one first term, and then when I did get one for the computing projects I had to do I didnt plug it into the internet. It meant when I did work I got it done pretty quickly and efficiently, whereas my roomate would spend a lot more time that me working and would work everyday, but I swear he spent half the time at least on msn or youtube.. You can always use the uni computers to check emil and stuff once a day so, or to write essays on as the aforementioned history student does

I found that working hard after partying hard for a while, is more effective. It gets the idleness out of the system and I don't feel the need to slouch off during work. Even if your degree is extremely demanding I think you should always put aside some time for socialising, at least I will be, because I need that to be sane. :p:

In my hall..it was a case of,

September - December - Party hard, sleep all day, go out 6 nights a week, do no work.
January - Learn whole module in 2 days for exam, repeat.
February - May - same as September to December
April-June - Work like your life depends on it. Usually doing 20 hours revision, sleep for four hours, up again to revise.
Last two weeks of June - Same as Sept - December, except now you have no work to do yeyy.

When I went to uni I thought I would do work everyday and be very organised. The reality was I did whatever coursework pieces I had and not a lot else. So that meant doing an all nighter day before its due in every two weeks or so. Worked for me

I think it might be different for Drama. Ovbs I will want to be out doing a lot of partying etc, but when it come down to the work much of it will be group work and practical work. If one person doesn't do the work it can often let the whole group down, so your much more likely to motivate each other. Rehearsing in itself is very social, and ieven if your working it will feel like being with friends. I just have to be careful not to slip into my old routine about show time and see no one else but the drama folks.
