    i know the grades will turn out to be unstatisfactory when i stop caring about half way to 3/4 of the term. This happens every term, i geuss i "burn out" and dont care, and i end up getting B's and some A's and continue to keep my gpa from getting any higher..... I get pissed. i dont know how to work consistently all the way through the term.... :( :(

    This happens to me also. My grades always drop off a bit at the end of the sem. Usually still end up alright, but not as good as they could be.

    Why isn't "Smoke a lot of weed" an option?

    I think your motivation and your study habits at the beginning of the semester play a huge role for the rest of the semester. After 2-3 weeks it becomes habit and you don't really think about doing it, you just do it (this is coming from a huge procrastinator btw). Of course your study habits at the beginning of the semester depends on how motivated you are to do well, how interested you are in the subject, and how much time you have.

    I think you need a "Bitch to your teacher till he/she becomes sick of your dumbas$ and agrees to change the grade" option for all the crazies out there.

    If I get a bad grade, I don't feel like I deserve to party. If I get the grades I want at the end of the semester, however...

    I can tell by your avatar that you are on the Bill O'Reilly "christmas war". I think it is funny that he is making such a big deal out of it all. Anyhow, gf are good at easing the tension.

    I second the women thing. :thumbup: Just be safe, don't screw up any of your friendships, and try not to act like a total fool in some bar somewhere. If you're married or in a relationship, the whole process is much easier. ahahah

    Or more difficult. ;)

    The semester is over. There's nothing you can do about it for now. Might as well get drunk and resolve to do better the next semester.

    I have this problem too. I burn out towards the end of semester. I just took a final yesterday and I could barely study for it at all I was so sick and tired of school.

    And to answer the poll, I usually get drunk.
