OP, you know you work hard, and truly that is what counts. She'll be no where in the long run and you'll be way better off. (and skinny and rich!) Seriously though, grades don't matter. It's what you apply the knowledge that you have gained to, but keep studying! The more you know, the more you can apply the knowledge to a job!
It seems to me that the shut in, hard studying sorts are the ones that most often snap once out of school, and try to make up for lost time. The three most studious girls from my graduating class are all now single mothers, trying to catch their careers up to speed after a string of questionable choices made in an effort to enjoy the life they missed. Get out a little OP, it will help you relax, and a happy brain has more active memory receptors than a stressed one.
Doing the same thing does not work for everyone. My best friend at college who is also studying to be an engineer, has a job while I don't and we have all of the same classes and he got a much better gpa than me even though I worked my ass off to try and do good. He is just naturally gifted at it. Calculus 2 just made more sense to him and he had to work less at it than I did to get grades much better than mine. Not every bodies mind works the same way and you can't just copy someone successful to find your own path of success.
Heh... I might be your roomate. But I don't dorm. I stay at home on my computer being lazy as hell, not even trying and learning to be an engineer. I'm sure things will get harder and I'll have to actually put in effort. I find it hard to believe someone is getting drunk every day and gets better grades than Op, unless OP's grades aren't good at all, maybe less than a C. Your studying methods aren't working, so try to relax a little more and don't wait for it to work itself out, go do something. Just remember, things aren't as complicated as they seem, don't think too hard.
Maybe what you need is a fulfilled mind. It seems to help her so I guess you just need to go out a few times. :) p.s screw her life, she's going to have a major hangover!
yeah, well. you can only be the pretty party girl for so long, then you gotta grow up. be relieved that you at least have your crap together (:
I'm one of those lucky assholes who can eat pizza and burgers and do nothing and have a 4.0 and weigh 94 pounds. But I have acne and I'm 4 feet, 11 inches tall. Trust me, OP, we don't have everything. :(
I don't understand all the thumb-downs :( If it sounds like I'm bragging or something, I'm not. I was just trying to say that for every good thing a person has, they probably have something worse. Acne may not sound so bad, but you haven't seen my face. It's bad. If my comment sounded stupid, then sorry, but I was being genuine with my comparison.
24, I've had acne since I was 10 years old. The scarring is horrible. You'd have to see my face to understand. They're not minor breakouts. My dad used to call me "corn" because my face was so bumpy that I looked like a cob of corn. About my height... well that wasn't that great of a negative. Of course it does suck to go pick up your little sister from elementary school and see a 6th grader taller than you, but I should've used something else as a comparison.
Accutane works WONDERS. Expensive as hell, but I had horrible acne from middle school well into high school (deep purple, horribly painful, lots of scaring). Six months of accutane when I was sixteen and I haven't had more than one or two random zits at a time in almost four years. It was a godsend.
45, I really wanted to try it, but my doctor didn't allow it because my family has a history of diabetes. So I am stuck with antibiotics and various creams. I'm not "corn-face" anymore, but the scars are enough to make me want to hide my face anyway. Thanks for the tip though. I'm glad it worked out for you. :)
45- Accutane doesn't work for everyone. I've had acne since I was 10. Very bad breakouts and very bad scaring. (Side note: Kids at school use to call me "mountain face." It was horrible.) They tried every other antibiotic and then put me on Accutane. After 6 months, my face had cleared pretty well, but not completely. 2 years later and my acne is back almost as bad as it use to be in middle school. It doesn't work for everyone, but it's definitely worth the money if it does work.
It could be worse. Don't let it get to you, no one can party forever.
Exactly. No one can keep up that lifestyle forever. It is just aggravating that the hard work OP puts forth doesn't show right now. OP no one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Also, try going out and enjoying yourself more often. Not every night mind you, but total lack of "play time" is not good for you either.
