Thanks Craig!! I hope for the best and the certain thing is that I'll give my best shot. As my teacher says, I'm really good already, but I always try for something better. It'll pay for me in the end for sure.

I remember my school days and sometimes miss them, but I prefer having the financial stability of a regular job.

Keep up with the studying, as the job market is much bigger when you have a post secondary education.

I understand how she must feel. Good luck to her Craig and tell her not to be stressed. To keep up the good work and everything will be just fine.

My two years studying journalism were an experiment, as I tried out social drinking and smoking pot. I only ever got drunk once though.

These days, I don't drink, smoke or do drugs, as I have a family to take care of. Plus, my current addiction to caffeine is cheaper then alcohol.

I study late at nights or early in the morning. No chance during the day. I read alot (non-study book), so I usually quickly memorize most important parts, and later just read a few more times for minor details. Also, I usually take good minimum six hour sleep before the exam, so my mind is fresh and relaxed... also, no reading on a day of exam (which are 95% of the time in the early morning) because you'll just end up confused and you'll panic and forget things you already know.

I am studying literature tho, so some exams are not hard-facts and there's a "breathing space" for free interpretation. Sure, that doesn't mean you can say whatever you want, but no one can say "it's not 100% right" either when you have to talk about the book you had to read. It's only bitchy because I usually have to read 10+ books per one exam (not to mention extra studies, critics and so on), so it's hard to make it all on time. That part is probably the most frustrating (not to mention finding all those books, especially some old ones that are out of print for 50 years)... but if I manage to read all the books I have, it's easier, since then I don't have to study hard facts and I tell my own thoughts about the book (or a poem) ... Linguistic exams are bitch tho, they are all 100% hard facts, and usually include grammar or a dead language grammar (like old Slavic, Latin, old Greek)

but hey, it's all part of the job, right? :rofl:

This is my last year, and I think I might go for either psychology or cinema studies after this one. :lecter: yeah, call me nuts, but fuck it...

I see!! Literature huh, well it's very interesting! I'll tell you what, in high school here in Greece we have 3 paths to follow: it's the language path (which I followed)with literature, history, latin and old greek, the math path and the technologies path. So I know how it feels when it comes to study for a literature or a language exam... Maaaany poems and books. And yes, there is always a free space for interpretation on the subject given. Also, what you do, getting enough sleep and not studying on the exam day it's the best thing to do and it's what I did too whereas all my classmates did exactely the opposite...

Hey, why not? Do whatever you like and what you feel comfortable with. Don't forget I go in a film school to become a film director. ;) Either psychology or cinema studies sound awesome! Especially the cinema studies which is my field and I find even more exciting. Haha.

heh, next week I am teaching class... Believe it or not, I am doing Greek drama and tragedy, fallowed by Antigone (Sophocles). There's a lot of ground to cover, only within five classes. That's huge thing for 2:30h I have. but hey, it's part of the charm, right? :lol2:

about that cinema... At first I wanted to go straight for direction, then literature... but I decided to switch it back first. With literature I could find job as professor more easily, while with movie direction it's based on luck and connections in my country, plus movie industry currently sucks, because no one wants to give money to unknown filmmaker. You know, you can't get a chance to show your skills if no one even wants to give you the chance in the first place.... at least with literature you can always work as professor if you fail as writer. (or you could work as pro critic, in library and even in theater as script writer)

Greek drama and Antigone!! Hmmm it brings school memories to my mind! Indeed, there is much to cover for just five classes, but you'll be fine. We analysed Antigone in school in so much depth as never before... lol.

Now about the cineme, you're right, but I believe that the film industry will eventually give an opportunity to new filmmakers to do their job and get down to business sooner or later.

I doubt that, since most of filmmakers\actors took of for either other parts of Europe or USA. :rolleyes: <_<

Some did get lucky there of course, some did not.
