The Dos and Don’ts of Finals

10 Dec

Do ask your professor any questions you have before study days begin.

Don’t rely on help from other students via Blackboard

Do print out all your study guides, notes, etc.

Don’t think about all the trees that had to die for all your papers.

Do invest in paperclips!

Don’t highlight anything you won’t need to study for. It’s confusing.

Do drink coffee.

Don’t forget to make some for your parents, otherwise they will be upset.

Do go to Barnes and Noble if you can’t study at home anymore.

Don’t spend all your time there Tweeting about how your old tennis coach is sitting next to you.

Do get candy to munch on while studying. (Sugar is good for your brain, right?)

Don’t pull handfuls of gummy bears out of your purse randomly. People will stare.

Do realize you probably should have stayed home.

Don’t stay there for an extra hour because you don’t want the people around you to think you’re a failure.

Do quiz yourself while driving, cooking, showering, etc.

Don’t quiz yourself when your mom is watching Oprah. Whoops.

Do step away from the computer.

Don’t go sit in front of another computer.

Do schedule 10-minute breaks to check your email/Facebook/Twitter/Blogs

Don’t extend that 10 minutes to one hour.

Do study hard enough that you finish the test in 15 minutes,

Don’t sit around and wait for someone else to turn in the test so that you’re not the first one too. Totally unneccessary.

Do spend the night at your best friend’s place the night before your last final ever.

Don’t finish the “too strong” drink even if you feel bad. I mean, you do have a final the next day.

Do kick ass on your last final.

Don’t stare at the idiot who ruined your group presentation like you want to kick his ass. He will not appreciate that.

Do be concerned when that presentation grade turns out to be bad.

Don’t worry too much, all the A’s from the beginning of the semester will pay off.

Do be proud that you got through college.

Don’t tell everybody in your class that this is you “LAST FINAL EVER.” They won’t really care that much.

 

What I’ve learned from Twitter

15 Sep

Ha. (Source)

In honor of Twitter unveiling “New Twitter” and the fact that I JUST figured out how to use regular Twitter, here we go!

I’ve learned…

1. For someone like me, who puts a lot of thought into everything they say, how it could be taken and, most importantly, how funny it is 140 characters is NOT ENOUGH. I can literally use that all up in commas, periods and question marks. Also, why is a space considered a character? It’s like air and air is not a character! Have you ever seen movie credits that say “and guest starring….Air”? No. Get on that Twitter.

2. You can make anything into an actual topic of conversation by putting one of these in front of the word(s): #. How crazy is that?! #college #procrastination #imblogginginsteadofstudyingbecauseimsoovercollegeandwanttograduateandgetanawesomejob. SEE, so cool!

3. Not only can Kanye West be considered the voice of our generation, he is now the voice of Twitter.

4. Retweets are kind of like sloppy seconds. Except less slutty.

5.I found out about John Mayer quitting Twitter….on Twitter.

6. 5,249,325. That is the number of followers Justin Bieber has. I am one of them. By the time you read this that number will probably be higher as will my degree of Bieber Fever.

7. Twitter is one of the few things that makes me feel like a 23-year-old. If you knew what time I go to bed, you’d think I was 65. If you knew how much Disney Channel I watch, you’d think I was 12. If you knew what went on in my head, you’d think I was crazy (oh wait, I am.) However, I can tweet from my phone and that’s what people my age do. It might be the only thing we do, but we do it well.

8. Twitter (or Twitterers, or Twits, whatev) need(s) spell check. It needs spell check more than I need to get over my dream of marrying an American tennis player and traveling all over the world with him while he wins championship after championship (all because of my love and support, of course). Yea, it needs it bad.

9. Twitter should win the award for “Website that made Mansee feel like a tool because she hated it for so long and thought that people who used it were dumb and it would never catch on and now she’s on it and is slightly obsessed with knowing what the Jonas Brothers are doing at all time.” I’ll even make a plaque.

10. Even though I only have 17 followers (pathetic, I know) I honestly think those 17 people truly truly care about my tweets. Even @FunNews. I don’t know who they are or what they do but I do know that they care deeply about me.

11. Insert shameless plug here: Follow me @ManseeKMuzumdar 🙂
