I was hoping the game would end up being 12-0 to teach the sens a REAL lessons. Too bad Gerber had to make 19 saves.

I just get very depressed and unmotivated...just want to do nothing and hope it all goes away. I guess you could stay I just "stop caring" and I'm like "eh...just wanna pass".

Lots of people go through these things. You'll get through it.

One thing I'll say though is if any of the stress is because you don't like your program, get out of it. It's not worth making yourself miserable for 4+ years of your life.
Yeah, I know what you mean. I've started loving my program now in third year so it helps alot. Finally develop some sort of study skills...still not perfect. Only having 3 exams helps but having to go to the Academic Appeals Centre for a class is a real ***** since no one anwsers anything.

Do you mean study skills? Or motivation? If you're not motivated then either quit and get a job, or switch to a really easy program, work part-time and coast for a while. It is much better to get an easy degree and then go back later than to get yourself in academic trouble, then leave, and then try to get back in once you know what you want.

If you're talking about actual study skills, I have advice.

RTWAP's Rules of Studying

1) Write A Cheat-sheet/crib-sheet For Every Class

Not that you'll actually bring it into class, but anything you write in your own had is way easier to remember. And organizing the thought enough to summarize it on the sheet is a good test to see if you really know it.

To be truly efficient, you should start the sheet at the beginning of the year (in very small letters) and add to it throughout the class. If you're using the sheet all semester long then it will really sink in.

True story, on a difficult exam I couldn't remember a formula I needed. I took a blank sheet, drew a circle around where the 'formula' was on my 'cheat sheet' and then Presto! it was in my head.

It is very easy to read material and think "OK, I understand that", only to realize later than it didn't 'stick'. This leads nicely into my second rule.

2) Take breaks

Never study for longer than 30 minutes without taking a 5 minute break. Get up. Walk around. Talk to someone. Use other parts of your brain a bit. Again, you may think you're studying effectively by slogging through the material uninterrupted for hours on end, but your brain is just humouring you into believing that.

3) Work With Others

Spend at least 25% of your study time in vocal group studying with others. It's the best way to overcome blockages. It's the best way to uncover undiscovered brain-farts. It's also a good way to keep it fun.

The vocal part is surprisingly important. It's like the 'writing' in #1. If you actually say something out loud, it is much easier to remember. If you hear it (and understand it) it will reinforce what you know.

4) Do ALL The Problems

This is the hard work one.

Do all the practice problem or assignments, even the ones that aren't worth much. We learn by doing, not by reading. Applying your brain to the page through your hand is the best way to turn a newly understood idea into remembered knowledge.

Every new snippet of knowledge should go on the cheat sheet. While studying for finals, redo all (or at least the hardest) questions while referring only to your cheat sheet. You should almost have it memorized by now.

I had a prof that had very hard programming assignments worth a total of 2% of the grade. When handed out the marked assignments he would carefully explain how to do the problem correctly. Many students fell into the trap of thinking the assignments were worthless because he explained how to do them and they weren't worth much.

But if you didn't do them then you didn't understand all the obvious mistakes and how to avoid them. You could only learn that through trying, and failing, repeated.

He was my best prof ever.

Not sure I should be providing any advice on how to complete an M.Sc. since mine has been stuck at 90% complete for 6 years and counting, but ...

The subjects can be a little too daunting. Ignore them and find out what actual research projects are being done at the schools you're interested in. And definitely factor in your feelings toward the prof or profs on the team.

Having a supervisor who treats you as more than just a research employee can really help. When you are unmotivated it can just snowball. If you can tell your prof about it, they can switch you to some other aspect of the project or a related task for a while to recharge you.

The best part of the game is when the commentators called the Predators the "ugly jerseys".

Good thing I benched Corvo in my league, i'm already hurting enough in +/- as it is. Elias is especially killing me, but I can't just drop him.

Did I mention that I partied my way through school. The only one of those that seemed like work at the time was #4, and in the end I think it is actually more work if you don't do the assignments and keep up.

I managed the student store, I was the VP of the engineering society, I met my future wife. (true quote from girls in engineering ... "the odds are good but the goods are odd").

The guys in my study group are still good friends.

And I graduated with High Distinction.

It's much easier when it's fun.
