unfortunately, one semester of debt at most schools is about equal to what you can make at red lobster in a year.*

*i've already spent time thinking about this option.

So close to being done with this goddamn graded memo, I can taste it. Yet, I'm content with sitting in the library just browsing the interwebs instead of finishing it out.

I worked a lot this weekend on my memo. I know what I want to say. But I can never bring myself to do work until it's close to due.

So if I get the concepts, and I'm using someone else's old outline, not word for word, but structure do you think it still helpful or do I need to start fully from scratch? I'm so not motivated to write this outline, when someone said it more articulate than I and it's right there...

Depends on the person. Personally, I benefit more from making my own than using someone else's. I usually check against other outlines to make sure I'm not missing anything big though.

Don't you go to a lower T1? Isn't that all the motivation you need?

Yeah, starting to succumb to this as well. Still doing my best to stay up to date with my outlines, but the material suddenly seems much less daunting then it did a month ago.

But don't make it rain in front of the coffee machines, you don't want to block people from drinking it. Make it rain off the to side... or better yet put a stage behind the coffee and make it rain onto the floor in front, it'll attract a larger crowd.

1. Take people out drinking the night before.
2. Roofies for everyone!
3. ...
4. Profit.


Question: Is there a program that I can get quickly that will allow me to make flowcharts without drawing? I suck at trying to draw flow charts on a computer and would rather just take a wizard-based approach or some such. Halp?
