The days leading to..


Every month they come, bringing with them these various questions. No, I dont mean the questions we need to answer on paper, but those we try to answer in our heads! As we attempt to study those subjects which make absolutely no sense, we, at least I wonder just why I'm continuing to study this pathetic excuse for a degree. Every page I turn has a big fat WHY printed on it! I check my cell phone, I see messages from my friends reading, Lets quit this stupid degree, or, Lets ditch all the papers! Every person writing these horrendous internals are in the same state of mind.

5-day PMS.

Day 1 - Saturday. It seems like ages since you woke up at 9 a.m on a Saturday morning. Your stretches are unusually time consuming, and today, all of a sudden you decide to read the newspaper! You then go into your room, open your book, only to realize you have no clue as to what topics you have to study. You call a friend asking for the portions, and then again have a long discussion as to what you're doing with your life. You hang up, only to realize its nap time! Obviously, thats more important than studying. So yes, Snooze!

Wake up, and wow!! Its six!! Where did those hours go!? You drag yourself out of bed, check your messages. All of them read, I'm screwed, how much have you done!! You heave a sigh of relief, everyone seems to be on the same boat here. And again there, out of the ordinary, you take time out to go speak to your parents, discuss world issues, something you haven't done since.. ah well, saturday, last month. Then finally, when your mother asks, don't you have to study, you drag your sorry ass back to your room, flop on the bed, adjust your pillow so your studying position is comfortable and open your book(again!). You look around, suddenly observing things you've never seen before in your room.

You hear you mum yell, DINNER!! So soon, you ask yourself. You check your watch, its 9p.m! Wow, where did those hours go, you ask yourself again!

So you get up, grab some grub, and watch tv as you're doing so. You finish at 10p.m. Now you realize there's no point in studying today, might as well start afresh tomorrow! So there ends the supremely eventful day 1 of the 5 day PMS. See you on the dark side of the moon!
