And by exams, I do mean studying as well.

I know eyesight is often one of the first things to go. I think I'm pretty lucky in that respect, I reckon it's still 20/20 but can tell the eyes aren't quite as good as they used to be (but that could be from long hours of playing WoW?). The other thing is my back :( Long hours typing = screwed up posture = inflammation of back again :'(

Can't wait till all of this is over!

Ok, so the HSCer is having no issues with mq exams. Good to know.

Any opinions from actual uni students?

lol at the 07er...

My eating and sleeping patterns (as screwy as they were before) have been completely destroyed. I just don't have time to sleep!! And let's not get started on that horrible sick-in-the-stomach feeling I get when I think about how much work I still have to do :p haha crap.

:( for the sick-in-the-stomach feeling. I know what you mean.

I always tend to get weird stomach cramps in times of stress... it is le suck. Let's not mention all the overeating of comfort foods during exam time, as well >.<

oh are you one of those lucky people whose metabolism goes into overdrive when stressed? :eek:

Although I guess any stress-related body change isn't cool, so hugs for you and hope things get better soon. :(

lol do you think that's a good thing? :p

I don't want to be too thin, but whenever I stress a lot and don't eat much (due to stress), I lose heaps of weight.

aww, I know what you mean.

you should take like 10 minute breaks and just walk around the house or something :p

I've got a friend who is like you. My jealousy argument is that it's easier to put on weight than it is to lose it, although the grass is always greener on the other side and aforementioned friend complains constantly about how she wishes she had more curves etc. I wish we could trade body fat sometimes! hahaha

Will try the walking thing. When it's not so cold outside of this room ;)

lol i'd say WoW is the ultimate killer. i used to play it all the time and i was always tired.

since i quit WoW, i work 5 days a week and do 2 subjects in uni and not feel as bad as playing WoW.

so yeah, WoW is the ultimate killer :)
