Never start a 3-week project 3 days before it is due. No matter how easy it seems like it will be.
I can honestly say that I have spent more time in front of a computer on the Engineering campus in the past 3 days than I have spent sleeping, eating, and in other classes combined. No joke. Take tonight for example. By the time I get my retarded self off this computer and back to my dorm, it will be 4 am. I have class at 8:25 that I can’t miss, because I have to hand this project in then. So I’m planning on about 3.75 hours of sleep tonight. And I spent 5pm to 7pm + 9pm to 3:30am ( = 8.5 hours ) working on this project today alone (well, this sleep cycle alone… hasn’t been the same day in hours.)
For anyone who wants to know what kept me up this late, my completed report is located here (2.5 MB PDF, you’ve been warned). It probably won’t make sense without the problem description, but I’m too lazy to find the link to that right now. Oh, and if you do actually read it for some obscure reason, I apologize for the 8 scanned-in pages that are huge and nasty-looking. That was the last thing I did tonight, just in case the TA loses my paper or something; I’m not doing this again.
So don’t be like me. Do your work when you’re intended to. You’ll be happier. And sleep more. And babble less.
