Finals start Monday.

I have had the whole day to study.
And as such, I have been in my chair and have not left my room except to get a soda since noon. It is now 11:30 in the evening.
I have not even begun studying.

What is even my life I don't.
I can't even.
I...

I know my exams can't even be compared to yours, but I, oddly enough, can kinda relate.
I've spent last week trying to study but couldn't force myself. Today, when it's too late for everything, I have experienced a weird desire for practicing math. What is wrong wit- I don't even.

F is expected. I am officially doomed.

Youtube new layout...
Ohmygodyes.
I wish Youtube and Google would actually spend time fixing some of the core problems they have with the site instead of redesigning* the page layout every year.
Apparently this design is supposed to lighten the amount of data sent to the viewers (by not remembering settings and things like this I assume) but I'm yet to see an option box for "I don't give a monkeys' uncle about how much data needs to be sent. Give me back the layout I got used to."
This is them again forcing people to get used to their way of thinking about usability.

One of my biggest peeves is that the "1,337 more videos" button has gone so I can't scoot along to the next few videos without having to go through the user's channel. I swear they've done this on purpose.
And why the fudge is it not aligned to centre?

I just don't get them... They're trying to get it as simple to use as the Google page is and yet they're also adding facebook-like features too... You can't have it both ways Google. One's a cluster**** of blue menu options and a complete mess and the other is a featureless, white monolith that people just momentarily use.

Just... ugh. Grr to you Youtube and Google... Grr to you.

Same with me. When I'm forced to do something, it takes me much more effort than when I decide to do it.

Well if you're anything like me try not to let the stress get to you. So far I've found that stress has lost me more points than a lack of studying has.
On one of my more recent chemistry exams, I remember getting to the section on molecular geometries. At the time I had some difficulties recalling the names of the different geometries, and when I did, they ended up mixed up, so I lost points on that. I didn't know they were wrong at the time of course, but when I finished I went on with my life and didn't learn or study one more iota of chemistry until I got that test back. When I got it back, I turned to the page with the molecular geometry problems, and seeing my old answers crossed out I was able to write down the correct names off the top of my head.

So just try not to let it get to you. Not to suggest that you don't need to study, it always helps and is recommended, but remember to manage your stress as well.

Just relax, guys.

Take your study to your happy and/or relaxing place.

It works almost all of time for me.

Rant board? Rant board.

Damn braces are trying to tear off my teeth.

That is completely true. I personally don't have much problem with tests, but a certain person I know does. She's a good student and all, but she stresses too much and then forgets everything.

Also, what the hell was wrong with old YouTube layout? What happened with that option to only see new submissions from your subscriptions? And why do they want my real name? Google is planning something. Something big, I tell you. Next thing they'll start implanting Google chips inside our brains and infiltrating the government. Where's my tin foil hat?

You don't have one yet? You're exposed!
But seriously, I don't doubt that really. When they went around with the street view car it would regularly stop and hack into people's wifi routers and gather passwords.When the American government found out they just slapped Google's wrist with nothing more then an "Oh you naughty thing, you."

Great job! Nerves got me in my exams. Thankfully our Uni course is all coursework.
