for every piece of coursework throughout my entire university career (of which i'm currently in my fourth and final year) i have left the bulk of the work until the two or three days prior to the deadline, with only the final day seeing any real effort with the usual all-nighter.
this worked quite well in the first and second years, and for the first half of the third, but the courseworks have got harder and more time consuming, while my work ethic has stayed the same. just now i submitted an absolute piece of shit that will probably cause me to fail the module. basically i'll be lucky to make it to the end of this course at all, and i will have wasted four years of my life thanks entirely to my piss poor time management.
so, erm, bollocks.
