I have a Rule... Homework > WoWIt might not hold at times, but i try to stick with it :D*Edit* First!
RL is a myth
I NEVER study but always get a A+:P
RL is a mythI wish that were true.I try to keep my life first (work-wise), but I am sooooooo bad at it. It's just so boring, I can never actually get myself off of WoW (or w/e I'm playing) to actually do it.I hate that about myself, but eh, what am I gunna do about it?
I NEVER study but always get a A+:PYou must be in middle school or easy highschool/college courses... good luck doing that further on in life.

Depending on your natural ability, environment and life goals, it's entirely possible to coast through most of life on talent alone (although probably not getting A+s every stop on the way....but unless you're going to grad school, grades stop mattering about age 17)On a related note, I actually think it's easier to play an MMO now that I have a (more or less) 9-5 job. When I was in school, I either spent much more time actually working (high school, when it was 40 hrs a week in school plus homework) or always had something I could/should be working on or studying (college/grad school).Unless I'm exceptionally busy at work, my nights and weekends are completely free to play as much WoW as a I want without penalty. As long as I get enough sleep to make it through the day, I could spend every other waking minute online and it wouldn't matter at all (except to my RL social life).
when i get home i do homwork and everything. then get on the computer. and after supper i study while watching some t.v.
I NEVER study but always get a A+:PWell, studying and doing homework are two different things; you could not study and get an A+ if you're smart enough, but you won't get an A+ if you don't do your homework.

I (as well as most of my classmates that graduated and blew off hw) have a high level of comprehension where I can absorb all I need through the actual class itself and not the busywork provided for homework. Thankfully at the collegiate level, the professors kept mostly to grading based on performance (tests, projects) rather than on homework :)Your statement does hold true if the course instructor grades with homework as a core base of the scale though :)edit: I also enjoyed doing my projects while raiding in wow... that's what easy trash pulls and discussion about the bosses are for!
I usually ban myself from WoW when I have school to do. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to work with Wowhead.:\"
True. I didn't include that, because just about every single school has homework factored into their grade.
I play a little WoW before hand, then a little after work. :PNot worth being behind, to be honest. I feel yer pain though.Games are a ton more fun than work, no matter what they say.
Perfect timing Sky, I have been pulling my hair out with my AP exams, regualar exams, tests, reading novels for English, and of course reports. So, what did I do- whisper my GM, and make it 100% clear that in my Senior year of high school, 4th quarter, my teachers decided to give us more work than ever before. So, I decided to drop Engineering and Mining and go with Alch and flower picking. I can talk with the guildies and buds but I do not have to worry about spending hours running Naxx. A win/ win- just remember, play WoW once you get home for may be 45 minutes, do homework until you simply cannot do anymore (you will know when that happens when you try to summarize a text you read and all you remember is Once upon a Time...) and then play WoW for a BG or 45 minutes.It works, and if you feel like you are playing WoW for a bit too long, simply put the stopwatch on and Alt F4 when you realize you have been on too long- auto closes the screen, forcing your hand.
Take home test? Ask the guild!
I'm terrible with the whole Wow / studying thing. I get round it by playing WoW at day and studying at night...Does that make me a superhero of sorts? :P
Its all about finding a balance for me, which if you work a sturdy job, a routine 9-5 or 3-12. I normally do it after I get off work, as I always have to cool down after working, can never sleep as soon as I get home. Though, if the girl is online, then I'll stay there and talk to her instead. Balance is key.And I want to wish everyone luck with their finals coming up.
Yeah, Homework > Wow. Sort of. I simply make a plan on when to do things, in which I include time for Wow and other things.That usually does the trick for me.
I have 20 exams over 4 weeks...yay me!I had 4 on Friday /QQ.And, I ban myself from WoW. But...Facebook is so tempting. Also, I sometimes go up to School to revise, much quieter.
I work better under serious pressure, so I procrastinate. However, on the day my procrastination comes to fruition, I simply don't open WoW or Firefox (unless firefox is needed for school) until my project is complete.But my one rule in life is that school comes before all... I will continue to procrastinate and do what I am doing until my grades are affected. If and when my grades start to show a decline (I was a straight A student through High School), I will take an indefinite break from WoW.
I go to school. I come home. I play wow. I have dinner. I play wow. I go sleep. Homework? I do it at school so I dont lose time oo
