So the four year roller coaster called “Quest for a degree from MIT” has come to a close. And of course, it wouldn’t be blogworthy unless there was more of a story than that.
So this semester I had just one ninety minute final, open book, open note final exam in cell biology. It wasn’t even really a final exam because it only tested us on the new stuff and was equally weighted with the other exams. The final was last Thursday and the last day of classes was the Thursday before, so I had a week to study right?
So what I’ve learned is that you can only read a book so many times before you just can’t read it anymore. And that is when my brain went to mush when I think I’d attempted my fourth read of the sections that were going to be on the test.
Cue Facebook. The best and worst invention given to man. Now imagine if I really had to study last week.
Battle of the Walls:
me: shouldn’t you be studying like i am pretending to as well?
friend: what is this studying thing of which you speak?
me: about that studying thing, i was just kidding. i watched pirates 2 then fell asleep on my couch. i can’t study anymore. i’ve read my notes umpteen times.
friend: i swear you change your profile picture once-a-day.
me: i mean, i have a folder of facebook photos, and when i get bored, it’s what i do. i can’t look at p53 pathways anymore.
and if you don’t believe me, just check my album.
ps. jkim, i’m glad you’re back on facebook.

Procrastination Technique #5: SLEEP
I can’t tell you how nice it is to sleep more than 10 hours a night now. My almost all-nighter for my thesis has been compensated for with my recent sleeping schedule.
