What has these last two days of study leave taught me?

A retrospective insight from a tired and gonky eyed Enny...

1) Studying in The Huns study is more productive than studying on the couch or in bed.

2) The productiveness of the study is more likely to be affected by distractions than you ever thought possible (but at least the groceries were done, food cupboard sorted, 'My Documents' folder was tidied up, etc).

3) I am not human. I am powered by refined carbs, particularly those found in No Name Crinkle Cut Potato Chips, Loaves of white bread with seeds on top and Nuttelex all round, Thins (plain AND crinkle cut), Free-from double choc biscuits, Soy Good Chocolate 'Ice cream', popcorn, diet cordial and Redeye.

4) This unadultered craving for potato chips does not mean I'm pregnant (proven, so you can all relax now).

5) Even the most precaution(istic?) people fear that there is a chance of pregnancy when 'the time of womanly celebration' does not occur within the expected HOUR.

6) I am TOTALLY too easily influenced by things I find on the internet (WILLIAM SLEDD YOU ARE THE HOTTNESS), b!tches.

7) Accounting? Soooo not my strongpoint. How mumsy does it (and how youngest bro wanted to do it) I'll NEVER know. Like how you can you just group things under names that seem to change according to whim, flight and fancy and somehow all balance out?

8) Slowing the internet to 'share' with the ppl who have 'shared' with you, will NOT reduce the amount of time I procrastinate - it will INCREASE it as I wait for the tabs to load.

9) Blogger, Firefox and Gmail need to get their sh!t together so that I can have 3 gmail accounts open in seperate tabs WITHOUT everything wigging out and me almost accidentally posting comments with my 'real' name MORE THAN ONCE IN TWO DAYS.

10) Who procrastinates at 1am the night before an exam?! That would be me.

Ugh.

Update tmr evening - at least the accounting will be over and done with.

Unless I fail.

Happy thoughts happy thoughts!!! I am sending them your way Enny!

I always think I am pregnant...I always have that feeling. I bet if I ever get pregnant i will probably feel normal and not realize for six months.

Best of luck with your exam tomorrow....

Enny said...

lulu - It's nice to know someone else is up at the same time ;o) Heh heh - I can't help but think of those old Dolly stories 'I went to the toilet and pooped out a baby!'. And thanks!

Jennifer said...

LOL, you girls!

I can now be certain I am not pregnant, unless of course immaculate conception takes place, then I wouldn't be super upset because I'd probabaly make lots of money selling my story to "Woman's Day" not to mention to fact I'd have like God (or Jesus's, I don't know who's, I am a heathen!!) baby.

Good luck with your exam!! I hate accounting passionately. I did it for one semester in Year 11 and it's the only subject at High School I ever failed, I can't imagine how terrible it would be at university level.

Boo for exams, but hooray for chippies!!

Enny said...

d'jen - can't you get pregnant by sitting on a toilet seat?! ;o) And if it were that dire, I think it would be God's baby.

Thanks for the g'luck - on one hand I'm cautiously optimistic as she pretty much spelt out what would be on the exam, but on the other hand I'm dangerously pessimisitc that I'm seriously underprepared because I have a vague idea of everything in the book but no concrete knowledge to do it all by myself (we're allowed a double sided page of notes). I thought I did well on the test. but got 20/40 (the average was 17!!) and thought I did poorly on the assignment (I got 13/20 for an average of 11!!) so it really could go either way. *gulp*

And if I do fail, well, I guess I'll deal with that when the results come out. I can at least hope I do okish on the one tmr (Org B) to keep my bosses happy (more on THAT soonish!).

And hooray for chippies!!!

My team leader was telling me that (not that I wanted to know in the slightest, mind you, in fact I particularly didn't want to know, but some people love talking) that she hasn't been on the pill for years she just knows that when she really wants it (I'm assuming sex, I might have been wrong) then that's when she knows she shouldn't.

Does that not sound slightly retarded? What if she gets drunk? I don't understand girls.

Anywho, back on topic. Accounting was the subject I came 2nd closest to failing (I got right on 50% for Business Stats) I don't think it's all that logical.... it seems like a bunch of random rules. Good luck the En.

Enny said...

adam - heh heh - I have a friend who got married and was telling me how they use the 'rythm method' - "it can be really romatic, sometimes he takes the temperature, we chart it..." then BAM! PREGNANT!!!!

Hrm - this isn't sounding too promising. Hopefully I can smack bang on 50% - acctg baffles me more than economics did!!!

Adam said...

Dude, you're so going to cringe all the way through it and then find out weeks later that you did awesome. We're onto you!

Adam said...

P.S) Economics I romped though, both Micro and Macro. Business Stats are different - all equations and weirdness.

MHE said...

Accounting and I are enemies. Good luck on your test. If you fail, cock-punch your teacher.

Enny said...

Right! One down, one to go!

adam - I was cringing through, but it was better then I thought - will wait to see how I go as how I feel about it is no longer a good indicator (see comment to d'jen above!).

My economics was both macro and micro, but I still managed a credit and was in a very distressed state studying for that one (as it also involves things that can be one thing or another depending on some obscure reference). There is a stats course for this degree too, but as it requires 3 lectures a week (on 3 diff days at 3 diff time slots!) I don't know how I'd go convincing my boss for the study leave ;o) That will wait until the END of the degree.

mhe - I'm joining your clan - together we may be able to beat the enemy. And as much as the thought made me laugh out loud, I couldn't do that to the lecturer - she's a lovely old Chinese woman in her 50s (or if you meant USE a cock to punch, I could also not do that)!

Halliwell said...

Why is the line 'the time of womanly celebration' in RED isn't that implyed anyway..

Best of luck with the exam, Remember there is NO spoon..

ChickyBabe said...

Number 9 can be done if you use 3 different browsers: IE, FF and Opera.

I almost made the same mistake twice. Especially with the remember password feature. Ugh...

Enny said...

Halliwell - because if I didn't highlight it in red I KNEW you'd comment and ask what it meant!

I don't quite get the spoon reference tho...

CB - Bah! Surely that would be more annoying then logging in at out? (Also - I've never heard of Opera!) - it happened once at work - IE picked up that I'd logged into gmail earlier, then used the real name to comment, but then I couldn't stay in as me to delete the comment after it happened - SO STRESSFUL!

Adam said...

My GSOH is set to Wrong. Mhe made me laugh so much.

I'm glad you're feeling okayish and have gotten past the cringin'. All is right with the world again. I hope this has taught you to never study again, no good can from it.

Enny said...

adam - heh heh.

IT'S OVAH!!! (for this year)

Halliwell said...

There is no spoon, is off the matrix. It would allow you to re-write the program and make u score top marks.
No I would get THAT reference. Like RED OCTOBER, female days reference and a partial name of a movie, HIGH CLASS BABY.

Did the exam go well??

Enny said...

halliwell... right.... Yup! (I think so!!)

M said...

oooooo crinkle cut potato chips!!! *drool*

Erica said...

Enny, with regards to number 9, I find that having different browsers works a treat. I use both Opera and Mozilla (Opera preferred), and open one gmail account in Opera, and one in Mozilla.

And don't worry about the pregnancy paranoia...I had my share of that the other month. Then I STILL thought I might have been pregnant even though my "time of womanly celebration" came and went. Turns out I was feeling off colour because of imminent glandular fever. But I have heard all these stories of girls still getting their periods and not knowing they were pregnant until they went into labour and ended up in the hospital!

Steph said...

Refined carbs are the devils work. How i heart them so.

So how did your exam go?

Enny said...

m - I'm stuffed FULL atm, but the thought of those crinkle cuts are STILL MAKING ME DROOL! =o)

erica - Hrm... I might hafta look into switching between two of my accounts in IE and keeping Mozilla in with me 'blog' email. And I DO know what you mean about still thinking it could happen, even while 'IT' is happening (as illogical as that is!).

steph - they are one of my many weakspost. Exam went well! I am about to update, I think =o)

'the time of womanly celebration'... heheh... love it

Enny said...

r-dogg - trying to making it sound lovely and empowering and inspiring rather than just a big, fat, pain in the ass...
