32: What's with folks not saving their work? Just click the little disk icon; that's all you have to do. 38: Completely. Why shred notes? Is the OP afraid someone might read them? The OP was setting themself up for failure when they started thinking shredding was a helpful idea.
Because of my constant OCD attacks and hope of passing, I always make sure to double check when I shred my paper.. I hope you can get them from someone else. Good luck on those exam.
I like 54's suggestion I generally try to keep all my notes somewhere just incase. I don't believe shredding papers is a great idea in this situation, if you had just thrown them out they could have been recovered. Plus, wouldn't you notice they were the notes you needed while shredding? Op should try to borrow notes and photo copy them!
This is why I always create back-up notes for school. If I do print them out, I always save a copy of them on my computer. If they are REALLY important notes, I'll even email them to myself for good measure. Better safe than sorry.
People. It isn't that hard to scan a paper(s) into PDF format via printer. Nor is it a big deal to take picture of said paper(s) with a phone or tablet camera. Even typing it separately one by one is smart too. You make a duplicate copy of said notes and you relearn the material. Use your brain. I'll probably get thumbed down for saying that but I don't care. The ignorance is too ridiculous to watch. Kyleekay is smart to do that and I do the same thing too for important papers -_-
Drink a little caffiene when studying or doing homework. It'll keep you alert and mistakes like this would happen less.
An apple in the morning is actually more effective at waking you up in the morning than coffee. The people you know don't need caffeine, they just need a kick start and then they pick up the reins once awake. It isn't required to have a coffee high in the morning to be awake. I don't, but I also have ADHD which may cause my body to wake up more easily.
I enjoy having a little pick me up while studying after I had been in school all day. Not enough to be jittery but a little helps me not get bored and drowsy but a little more focused. Not everyone reacts to it the same way she/he was just saying a little pick me up can sometimes be a little helpful. But that's me I know not everyone feels the same way. Sorry I couldn't remember if it was a he or she didn't want to be insulting.
I just read an article on Cracked that cited a military study at BUDS (SEAL basic training) that found one to two cups of regular coffee, in exhausted trainees, significantly decreased mistakes and increased mental acuity. The Army, or at least my old unit, runs on caffeine. I'd have never made it trough AIT without copious amounts of Jolt gum, soda, and hyper strong coffee. I'm sure it'll eventually make your heart explode, but damn can you get some shit done in the five minutes you have left.
That's why you type things out when you get home. And also why you double check things before shredding them.
