Finals are looming. The mildly comatose look you see on people’s faces in the library has taken on a more frenzied or stricken appearance depending on whether that particular person is currently in the ‘despair’ or ‘determination’ leg of the circle of rationalization.

Each student, like the intellectual snowflake that he/she is, will find his or her own way in exam time. In a recent post, Ana unveils her own particular brand of self-loathing – Shoot me now…

I don’t do outlines – I never include enough details when I’ve tried.
I don’t do other people’s outlines – accuracy is kind of an issue on these.

I’ve tried other methods and this is the one that works the best for me, but can I just tell you – IT SUCKS RIGHT NOW.
