I don't have to do any reading because I don't go to school.

Also, because drugs.

I mean seriously does it HAVE to be so BORING?




if you can read through just a page of that without immediately falling asleep you deserve a medal. i swear it says the word freedom over 200 times in like 4 pages

yuck im not reading that

you guys think there is a more stimulating way of learning something? this is a serious question tho cause ive noticed the reason I and many others do poorly in a class is because the material or the way of learning something just isnt stimulating.

i get a lot of these classes that just assign the same dull ass reading for like 60 pages, and then next weeks assignment?....OH YAY MORE READING 100 MORE PAGES AND BTW EXAM NEXT MONDAY BASED ON THE READING HAVE FUN.

dude like for real on top of the fact that nobody gives a shit about this shit because it has nothing to do with their career/job path, its excruciatingly boring. there HAS to be a way to make this more interesting isnt there?

Hey, I stole this idea from lolmnt but it's been working for me. I have a stationary bike and I've been reading my assignments for school while riding it. So I workout like I was going to do anyway and do a lot of studying/reading at the same time. Could also work on a treadmill I guess, but probably not while running.

Works well for me

i can't split my attention to 2 separate things like that and expect to retain much of anything. if i'm studying i have to only be studying (none of that music in one ear, eating cereal or whatever stuff) otherwise it goes to shit.

kinda jealous of you but not really




#27
that wouldnt work for me. aside from not actually having an exercise machine, im not very good at multitasking. i dont even like having music on when i study or do homework. i have to focus on something specific otherwise i just lose all concentration. im terrible at multitasking

Yea, I could see that if I was just starting or something. But I've been doing cardio stuff almost everyday for over a year now. I pretty much zone out the second I start at this point. So focusing on what I'm reading isn't too bad.

If you walk on a treadmill it's alright, but it's hard to run and read.

i got like three worksheets on drawing clefs, notes and reading basic music notation. and in this class i'm spending a whole semester learning about this shit; the furthest we're getting is learning keys, intervals, and how to form basic triads (which i'm also doing in another class atm, and have done last semester already). maybe seventh chords if we're lucky.

it's like holy fuck, i don't even read sheet music on a regular basis and i know this shit. but considering all of the classes are geared to people in the animation, video game design, storytelling, etc. majors, they have to dumb it down to elementary school. it's so incredibly frustrating that i have to spend up to 3-4 hours a day doing this, paying out the ass to learn things i already know when i have ONE recording class every TWO days. for LESS than an hour.

should i mention this is the only required (wait, slash that, it is the only) class where we're in the studio regularly.

yeah, thanks for all the hands-on and such. i'm learning so much about the engineering process

I would not mind doing your readings. There's worse out there.


I have a bunch of stuff to read too - scientific papers mostly, but also textbooks. I'm reading a book for fun on the side though so that makes everything better.


If you really wanna do something for me, do my linguistics homework. I have transcribe a short story into IPA in three different accents and I'm getting a sore throat from pronouncing everything in an exaggerated manner. Worst part is I can't do this work in public because people will think I'm talking to myself.

I am a terrible reader and lose interest quickly unless it's the rare case of a novel that has really captivated me. The picture you posted from the book, yeah I would probably not be able to get through more than a chapter before saying "**** this."


That being said, you can almost always still learn all of the information required to do well in the class without actually reading the textbook word for word. Usually the class syllabus will tell you the main topics that you learn about each week, and the lectures and assignments will confirm what you really need to know. Then you can skim the textbook and find only the most pertinent little parts, or just google them.

he's referring more to the different system where in the US, you have to do undergrad crap before going into your actual programme, and this requires you to take classes you have no interest in. Whereas in the UK, you go straight into your programme, and all of the classes you take directly relate to your desired degree.
