    My last two weeks

    So here's been my last two weeks:

    * Had to study for a law exam (Contract) five hours each day under the duress of fatigue.

    * Suffer from a sleeping problem and have been sleeping during the day and been awake during the night.

    * Haven't got out in a while (except my weekly game of tennis)

    * Been studying 5 hours a day. The material is very dry.

    * Needed to memorise 150 cases for Contract.

    * Couldn't force my body to wake up in the morning and go to bed at night, so I couldn't get my sleep right before my exam

    * Got broken sleep the day (not the night before the exam) which ammounted to about five good hours of sleep. Then had to stay up 18 hours straight to prepare for my exam (and be awake to sit it!)

    * Sat the exam, feel like it's 50/50 whether I passed. If I haven't passed I'll be devastated since I've sacrificed so much.

    * Ready to sleep now... so very sleepy.

    Yeah, I've been pretty much like that for a few weeks now, though my sleeping patterns have been horrible for years. Part insomniac, part sleep apnea. Did an exam today on virtually zero sleep, jacked up on No Doz (H).

    Can't survive with less than 8 hours sleep.. If I can only get, say 4 hours in a night, then I'll just stay up and won't bother..

    Generally get about 6-7 hours sleep a night during the week, go to bed between 1.30pm and 2pm, and then get up around 7.30ish, then am totally worn out come the weekend.

    I returned home on 25th May after completing engineering. I was taking rest, then after a few days received the news that I had to go back to my college to complete some formalities.

    They had to be done, I had no other option. So I booked my tickets and packed my bags, again.

    I went to Delhi by train, stayed at my sister's place, next morning went to the airport, took a flight to Goa, roamed around the place, then took a train in the night, reached Manipal, completed the formalities by Friday, on saturday went to Mangalore(2 hours drive), had a lot of fun, returned to Manipal the same day.

    Next morning travelled to Mangalore Airport, took flight to Bangalore, then to Delhi, stayed there for a few days, finally returned home, and on saturday received a good news.

    I will be going to Noida for my job, starting 27th June.

    Phew, the last few days have been so hectic with loads of travelling!

    Just had four exams in six days (Thursday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday), been sleeping two hours at a time and drinking a lot of coffee. ("By the end I thought I was a hummingbird of some kind.") My general strategy re. Law exams is to cram for two days, don't really bother studying for anything else. Always come out of law exams thinking that if I'd bothered to study an extra day or two I might have done really well; apparently it never occurs to me to start studying earlier until after the fact.

    Not I can't claim to know much about your Australian sports, but am I right in saying that Carlton are in the top 8 right now. Am I also right in saying that have a player named Chris Judd who's just about as good a player as there's ever been?

    If Pasag's studies measure the degree in how badly Carlton sucks, then I am of the opinion his degree is useless.
