What do you have to do for that?

Most people just go over their notes -- but I tend to just do the many past papers that are available... and create a word document giving details of any questions I get wrong. Then memorise everything in the word doc, then do all the papers again to check I know them. After that -- start memorising random notes.

Sounds like a lot of work.

Yes, I agree.

Am going to take a little break, see you in a bit.

Just make sure you do not wear yourself out.

My exam season is short -- only 2 weeks compared to 6 weeks last year, and only 9 exams compared to 16. I'll try to make sure that if I do burn out, it'll happen at the end of my exams...

Best to make sure you do not burn out at any time.

Okay, but try to get adequate rest and relaxation.

H even offered to help me "relax" last year (if you know what I mean). But I did not accept it...

I guess, but even when I look back at the e-mails she sent me, I cringe when I look at that robotic, weird style of talking. It just screams of "I'm crazy and I could explode at any moment".

Have you found any better? I have not.

But she was basically diagnosed as mental. Not every girl would get the same diagnosis.

I am willing to bet that if they went for a diagnosis, 85+% would.

I have to go offline because I will be shopping for some things. Hopefully, I will get them on sale.

Same here. Went and got nothing except some minor things. Looks like I am headed for the supercenter.

Supercenter?

Yes, Walmart calls them supercenters. They are so big there are unknown creatures living inside them that even science has not classified yet.

Oh, we call those shopping centres over here I think... (unless you mean something else)

There was some thread on TSR about some guy approaching as many girls as he could in a shopping centre. Apparently had no success.

Once my brother and I had the unfortunate experience of having to wait in the Hospital lobby while someone else was recovering from surgery. It took weeks and we did little else.

Now there was a guy who every night would wait at the front. He would do this because he knew every girl that worked in there and was visiting would have to come in from those doors.

As they passed he would ask every single one to go out that night. He did not differentiate, he asked them all. Each girl could hear him asking the one in front of her. It did not deter him and eventually one would always say yes!!!
