I will have to say work is easier then school for the most part. At least when you you leave for the day you are pretty much done. Plus in school I worked and went to school.

School and work both have their stresses. School is pretty much stress free for 10 months out of the year, especially for the six months (SIX MONTHS) you have off for summer and winter breaks. But all the stress for the year gets packed into the month leading up to finals.

Work is stressful year round, though generally not as intense as exam stress. But I've been in meetings where I've had presentations due to the COO and CFO, and they've wanted answers on everything. That can feel like a final exam because those honchos aren't happy when they don't get an answer to a question.

College kids have it made. Don't ever graduate.

Re: Exams? Wait until you get a real job..

I agree work and school both have their own stresses. I think school stressed me out more though.

With work I can leave it all behind once I get home for the most part, with school you can't do that.

When I graduated last year for months afterwards I couldn't get out of that school mode of thinking, I couldn't help but thinking constantly ok what paper do I have to write this weekend, or what test or presentation do I have coming up.

A truer statement has never been made in human history.

To everyone in college: This is it. It is all downhill from here. Oh sure there are many joys in life to come but not a one will rival the sheer unbridled lack of responsibility and the opportunity to screw around that college does. Enjoy it while you can and stop complaining about finals because they are a small price to pay for what can easily be described as the greatest time of your life the rest of the time.

From someone who has worked full time and gone to school full time, work takes the cake. Sure it may be repetitive, but there's something about not taking work home with you that fits me better. I'd rather know I can do whatever I want in the evening and weekends.

Exactly. I've worked full time while I went to school full time, there's no comparison, work is 10 times easier. I have never had a hugely demanding job, but I have never had to go home and spend 3 times as much as time on homework as I did in class. I can say that I would take work any day out of the week before college.

obviously being young without commitments on a college campus is great. But finals times is beyond stressful. This kinda shit is what gets you hooked on coffee in the future and causes you to lose hair.

Seriously the amount of stress this week is pretty insane.

Don't talk to me about stress. I don't mean that in disrespectfull or fucked up manner either. We all have experienced a shit load in our own way, and all of us know what it feels like.

Of course we all have, and I sure the stress you have experienced is greater than what I am going through. But at the same time I am saying exams stress is a different kind, in that it is a very very high amount in a small pd of time, basically no sleep, and gets you started on the coffee/losing hair game...lol

I understand the No sleep, and coffee drinking. I am far from losing my hair.

Re: Exams? Wait until you get a real job..

I actually go the opposite route from the no sleep way. I do what I can, but make sure I get plenty of rest before each final. I've found my brain is shot without enough sleep and even cramming won't help. I do realize it's ironic that I'm writing this at 5:13 AM.
