    Going to college is fun...but these midterms and finals are killer.

    Biology and Economics, on top of that the professors weren't that great...I should be studying right now, but here I am tweeting, facebooking, talking to clients, texting, and eating.

    How do you guys concentrate or study for a test, I usually do well from listening during class, but like I said these professors sucked so here I am trying to read and read and read..

    How many of you are still in university? I'm 19 and this is my 2nd year.

    Hahaha funny I though i was the only one with this problem. I have a final tomorrow and one Thursday and instead of studying I am working on my sites lol

    It's really hard to study for a test when all you have in mind is making money lol

    Exactly, I guess we have to have the mindset "study now, make money later" My last final is on Thursday also...can't wait to bust out and have a long vacation.

    I have my finals this week as well. For concentration, I'm prescribed Concerta. It helps a lot.

    I'm 19 and in my 1st year in college and I did the same thing during my finals week (last week). Instead of studying for hard finals, all I could think about was how to increase my current revenue and make more money. Also, I spent a lot of time talking to people from here on Skype about IM stuff and nonsense...
    I always have the mentality of: Make money, fuck school... lol
    Should try to change that though... college is a bit important.

    I finished my finals last week. Caffeine is the only thing that helps me focus. I tried Adderall a few times but it wasn't anymore effective for me than caffeine.

    Good Luck!

    I know what you mean bro! Got my biggest final tomorrow.

    What I've found works is studying in a different location than where I do IM. So, my laptop is in my room, but I never study in my room. We have a big table in the dining room, and I study there. Works for me.

    I don't drink coffee much, but I think I'm gonna have to today.

    The problem with me is my past exams were uploaded as pdf's so I need the computer open lol....I wish coffee tasted better...but nonetheless it doesn't do anything for me..

    I calculated what the lowest I need to get to keep my B's and my chances are looking good.

    On a side not, I got a new SEO client! My old history teacher from high school called me and asked if I was in the business still, turns out he is a biz owner now.

    THANK YOU BUSINESS CARDS!!!
