It's that wonderful time of year again. Yeah, that's right: it's exam time...

Exams pretty much always suck, because there's so much to learn and way too little time to learn it. I have a very long record of "48-hour revision". Sometimes that works well and sometimes it doesn't, but it has always meant that I get some down-time between exams.

It's not like that anymore. I don't mean that I spend a lot more than 48 hours revising for exams, I just mean there's no down-time. Because the brilliant professors at the Slavic department have a habit of continuing classes during exams. A course only ends once the exam is over. So I have classes this Monday and Tuesday, an exam om Wednesday, and classes again on Thursday and Friday. And then another exam next Monday. So this means I need to do my homework AND find time to revise for my exams during the same amount of time that I usually spend struggling to get all my homework done. There's something seriously wrong with that.

And to add insult to injury I have the flu. So I'm sitting in bed with my laptop -- feeling really happy I bought that legged breakfast tray the last time I was in IKEA -- trying to focus for long enough to update my LJ. Five minutes is my record so far. Then I have to lie down or close my eyes for a while.

When doing something simple like updating my LJ takes this much effort, can you imagine how much trouble I have revising or doing my homework?

Yup.
