    It was straight guys, but that's not the point. I take time before and after things I need to do, like school, to do other things like that; I make time.



    I go to school Monday to Friday and wake up an hour early to exercise and get things done, why can't students who go to lectures that lets face it, mostly start at 11am, two to three times a week, do the same?
    Like most other students....

    And they can go to lectures, it's just a case of whether you want to or not. If I'm going out midweek, I probably won't make my 9am the next day. I'd be ridiculously tired, hungover and I'd probably be more productive if I just layed in, missed the lecture and then proceeded with my day as usual.

    (Ofcourse, you could just not go out at all)

    basically. some people have fuller schedules than him.
    ye sounds like he literally has nothing to do all day everyday lol. The type of day that he just described is something you do on days off when you've got no lectures or job etc.

    Yeah OP, if you aren't at uni and working then you don't really know what it's like. If you are still doing your A-levels (which I presume you are), then obviously you have a ton of free time. A-levels are piss easy.

    and cardio only? Do you even lift?
    I don't feel the need to lift to get internet points. I'm not a muscle Mary.

    Like not turning up to lectures, going to the pub, working 8 hours a week at Starbucks and writing incoherent essays. Yeah, real full.

    As a carer for a parent, working 35 hours a week, studying for another uni course and having 2 dogs to look after / walk every day... I'd say sometimes I don't have time to do everything that I'm supposed to do...

    But good for you having your life in order 👍🏼

    Hm, if the guys are having gay sex with you...they obviously aren't straight are they?

    Re the lecture thing. You're doing A-levels. Uni study is very different. Lectures don't make up most of the learning, unlike in high school. I'd say 80% of most uni degrees is spent in the library reading or doing coursework. Most students spend 30- 50 hours studying per week (around 50 certainly for medicine), outside of scheduled clases. For A-levels, I did 3 hours max a week and got all A*/As. There's quite a difference.

    That's your own fault then, you can't be bothered to make time for the commitments you're spending £9,000 a year on, to go out, great choice. Then you'll moan you have no idea what's going on at university, how on earth you'll pass this module and that it's all unfair. You can go out and go to lectures; set an alarm like I do. If I go out the night before school, I set an alarm and go to school anyway, because that's a commitment I've made. I still have the time.

    They are when they have girlfriends and you offer them stupid amounts of money for them to do what you want. Regardless of that, I still have time to write this to you after having had a full day of doing things.

    Dude, you do your A Levels, you have so much time in general, university students have it harder. Maybe in that spare time you could find a job or do volunteering for your personal statement? It's something I do, but yeah not everyone has it easy like you.

    Why does it concern you what other people do with their time? I thought you were like, 16? Where exactly are you going out? To the local park for a couple of cans of stella?

    Not at all; I've done three hours of studying today in total. I have time for things because I use the time available in the day without wasting it.

    Okay so please tell me when i have time on my thursday for example: Wake up at 7am, get ready, do some exercise in the morning, leave by 8:30, in uni 9-1, working from 1-4 then 5-10pm then come home and have a shower. Do tell me when i'll have time in there to get my uni work done/go shopping/see friends/ect

    Don't assume everyone's on your schedule.
    Well theoretically:

    If you wake up at 7, did 30 minutes of exercise, had a 10 minute shower and ate breakfast in 20 minutes you'd have half an hour spare. It's not exactly unheard of to get up earlier either.

    Your post is a little confusing, are you saying that you work from 1-4 and 5-10? If so that sort of begs the question why are you at uni when you can't afford it without working?

    It does amaze me that so many students go straight to uni and then find themselves needing a part time job to support themselves. Why not work for a few years before uni to make yourself financially stable?

    I'd also assume this is a more packed day for you. If you're spending 9-1 at uni and most student gets 12 hours per week then 1/3 of your week is packed into Thursday. Meaning you'd have plenty of spare time on other days right? It's perfectly fine to have one busy day where you can't get much done but I doubt this is representative of your entire week. If it were then you wouldn't have the time to be posting about it on TSR
