The following may or may not have any correlation with observations in a café near a major university…
I’ve got so much work to do, I’m going to fail and my parents will disown me.
It’s OK, I can study, I can do this. I’ll study right after I check facebook.
My friends wrote on facebook that they will meet with me for a study session. I’m saved!
It’s way more fun to text message and talk about complicated relationships than study right now.
I’m screwed, the exam/paper is taking place/due tomorrow! I need to get to work!
This makes sense, I know this. Studying is working!
This makes no sense, I’m screwed. Studying isn’t working!
Everyone looks way more worried about the test/paper. I’m in good shape.
I think I missed a few questions, but I think everyone did. The prof will probably grade on a curve.
Actually, the test/paper wasn’t too hard. Good thing I hardly worried about it.
I probably failed my test/paper.
Oh, I got a B. It could have been worse I guess.
But I studied so hard and I only got a B???
I got a B because my professor is a jerk.
Oooo, cake popsicle at Starbucks…
