Yes, for real. I started really young, so I'm the "least grumpy" of the bunch.

I'm a college professor, does that count?


if you truly are a professor then you may be able to answer my question

why do all my professors call reading power point slides all class period teaching???


Well, I can give you the long, boring and apocalyptic answer, but let me say it this way: it's the way "current teaching" is accepted in most cultures. I have seen many times what you describe, and it's really sad because eventually those students will teach others in their respective areas : /


they make my life extra hard since i dont learn by being read to. i need to see them workout examples which they refuse to do or they have it worked out on power point with steps skipped -__- Engineering is hard enough as it is they make it worse >:|


Well, in general, college is meant to be a place where students learn for themselves, rather than being spoon-fed information. I had many professors who used lecture time to simply go over what we read. Now, I don't agree with this mentality from a tuition cost standpoint, but from a practical standpoint I kinda understand it. In reality, us college students aren't paying to be taught anything. We're paying to get our grades/certifications/diplomas.

I'm long out of university now, but I graduated at the top of my ComSci program and still had loads of time to play games and do other hobbies as well.

It's true though that the secret is organization and time management. Some people are just ludicrously poor workers who procrastinate all the time and take like 3 times as long to get anything done. If you're going to do work, give it your full attention, then you can have more time to yourself when it's done.

I got the organization part under wraps, but the time management part is another story...You're sentence that starts with "Some people are just ludicrously poor workers.." describes me :(

Well, it can be improved. Perhaps wanting to play games but not having time to do so will encourage you to get better at it.

I'm not in college and I still don't play games as much as I used to or atleast it doesn't SEEM like I do.
How your perspective of time chages as you grow up is pretty crazy.

Back in high school there wasn't much to do "after school" so we just play sports or play games to pass the time away. Now that we're in college almost all of our restrictions are non existent which gives us so much freedom playing games is like a waste of time right now. We play games on portables literality so our appointed time comes up. The lack of sleep is what really driving us crazy.

You get used to that too. To think I used to sleep like 9 hours a day. Now 7 seems like lots.

I game and I'm a med student. Anyone complaining about a college workload being too much to game either is in over their heads in the first place, or doesn't actually want to game.


Eh, College work load is what you make it. I did not try hard but did pretty well and I gamed a lot. But I know people who worked all the time (even though they didn't have to imo). Then I went to law school and I definitely game a lot less.

I actually have more time to game now. Probably because I'm only going to school part time due to health issues.

Give or take those 4-48 hour segments where I'm too hopped up on painkillers to play games. Those times really suck.
