Pretending to work level: 9001!

 

It actually works well.. Teachers are impressed by my will to work.. Which is good. Makes them predisposed to accept sickness absence, and give me good grades^^ 

I am such a butthole. But I forgive myself! 

 

I recomend trying this^^03022012136.jpgImage Enlarger5

I don't get it, do you put all the books out then go off for a go on your violin?

That is hilarious. You are a genius. Same question as Sam though? Do you play the violin with this all set up?

Nah. Just dodging angry teachers. "WHY ARE YOU NOT DOING ANYTHING!?!?!"

Easily answered with "What are you talking about? Look at this! I was simply looking up formulas on the internet. Chill out, man..." They reply "Oh.. If that's the case... Good work!" And they walk away happy without ulcers or aneurisms. We all benefit from it. Trust me :3

It is all about tactics my friend. Some say that an excellent study technique will give you good grades. I say that giving the impression that you are a hardcore worker, and then produce on exams is great. 

But I hate working. So I slack as much as I possibly can. And this predatory tactic helps me do just that. Is it good morale? Certainly not. But do you really need morals in this day and age? amoral is the way to go. Please do distinguish amoral and immoral from one another.

That said I have one teacher that sees straight through me. And gives me B in all his subjects. It is a sad tale. But whatever. Who needs a good grade in literature anyway? 🙁 Did I mention I hate that subject?

Hah! That is how I made it through college. I can remember late-night study sessions for physics class. Everyone else was, umm, in an "altered" state and panicking about the exam. I made up a few silly songs for the key points, made sure they could sing them, then went to bed. I usually had the highest grade on the examlaugh

 

Higher level math classes I didn't even bother. I just slept with the book under my pillow. I figured osmosis was as good a study method as anything else at the eleventh hourduncecap I never did my homework for those classes either. The professor was really nice, and I always felt bad about his hopeful-turned-disappointed expression when he asked for my work. I still pulled through with Bs.

 

I guess what I'm saying is that slacking has nothing to do with morals. Slacking during class is rude, especially if it distracts other students. Otherwise, you aren't hurting anyone but yourself. If you already understand the material and you are just doing seat time, who cares what you do? Your teachers should get over their overblown egos if that is the case. dancinbunny Grades should be based on the work you turn in, not on how you spend your non-working time.

Hear, hear !

Let it be known that there once was my buddy Thomas and somehow the linear algebra class conflicted with his part time job on a loading dock.  So he never attended a class but aced the final and the prof really didn't care what he was doing during the semester.  Good school!

Ha ha ha, very interesting. As far as i could recall, I began to skip doing homework at grade 4 or so (got punished for that though). In junior high and senior high, I don't remember I did much homework, probably just those I enjoyed doing, like writing essay -- my friends did them all for me:P They got more practice and better grades but I got higher degree. But, don't ever let my daughter read this part:P and I'm not advising anyone not to work hard, and to be honest, I was a lot more diligent after high school.
