  • can someone tell my uni that making students write 4500 words (as a maximum and minimum approx) in 1 6 hr exam and 3000 words to an unseen question in another 6 hr exam 2 days apart is more likely to make them exhausted than do heaps for "mitigating students' circumstances due to our current times"

    I think that may fall under cruel and unusual punishment!

    @DistortionLocke University of Cambridge and these are my final exams for 50% of my final grade sjskdkd 6 hours to write that much is doable by uni standards but they also expect really good answers rip

    @SimplyUnknown to be fair they tell students to not try to use the entire 6 hours (and for the second exam they got me to prepare empirical evidence/essay plans for all their vague past papers that I could get some idea of what I might argue) but they still expect so many good essays so we all spend as many hours as we can on it anyway dkdkdk idk how I could do a good job in less time
    hello friends! if i am even slower than usual to comment on your run i am really sorry, life has decided to make my final Massive Uni Exams that Count for 3/4 Of My Grade 6 hours long each D: and life also is up and down dskljfhdsjk once i ride out this storm i will try to catch up on comments
    Me: *tries to write an essay due tomorrow which is admittedly not the most interesting*

    tfw a graduate scheme employer, who tells u 2 days ago to apply by 20th sept, is like "what are ur [career] goals?" in their form

    and u stare blankly because ur tired and want to play pokemon and these were meant to be ur days off after months of dissertation and career prep
    Hello I just want to say that u are all creative beans and that if I had the time and energy I would comment on everyone's run in the forums 💜💜 also I'm sorry for the past month where I didn't comment that much where I usually would, bad personal circumstances are legit the worst
    you ever recall an angsty song that talks about being paralysed by doubt and failing moral compasses etc, and instead of being like "yes this is perfect for my edgy story plans" you are like "yes this is perfect for the hidden Angst in my dissertation"

    ...okay that may be just me ;skgfhdfkjg i'm not actually edgy i promise rip

    I know you're not edgy but this post ain't doing you any favors in that department.

    me thinking of story ideas: "okay so sinnoh shall now be this massive tower with its own economic system and weird dimensional stuff, hmm am i missing anything"
    the actual pokemon who fight in pokemon battles instead of going on about economics all day because it wouldn't be a nuzlocke otherwise: "yeah excuse me what about us"

    At least they aren't the final boss of a certain fangame I've played; that has 5000 hp, is immune to all status moves and effects oh btw just for good measure has 3 times the Special attack of Mega Mewtwo Y. :)

    Oh btw, when a youtuber who made a Let's Play of the game complained "This is way too hard" some modders for the game said "Get good" (I know this because I watched the video where that happened)

    The worst of all, that boss isn't even the hardest thing in the game.
    god life really does decide to pull the rug under me whenever i feel happy and smiley and when there's been a positive development

    then suddenly it's "hey this thing was going well? lol you thought" and it feels like i'm hurting, and here like i may've been messed around
    aaaaaaa u ever just be flustered and so happ and listen to love songs and everything is cute and aaaaaaaaaaa

    dfkvhdfkjh i may sound drunk but i'm honestly not, i'm sober

    god of all the times to draw this edgy profile pic for myself and then i'm posting vague stuff about being so blushy and happy like. this is not me being quite as angsty as i thought i'd be 😂 😊
    me: *is trying to be epic and productive and work hard at my dissertation and my coding*

    my brain: "HELLO i heard you like LOVE SONGS let's get them in your head all hours of today, no you can't think about anything else, this song about pining WILL play" lkvhdflkgjvhdflkj
