Trinity student Simon Quinn hopes that after purchasing a new A4 pad, that his motivation and ability to study will drastically improve.
The final year science student’s end of year exams are fast approaching and he has yet to begin work on any of his course material.
Simon has spent the last number of months, carefully studying Breaking Bad, The Wire and Game of Thrones and although he may be competent in these popular TV programs, he is lacking in the required knowledge to help him pass his exams.
Commenting earlier Simon said:
“Yeah, I’ve haven’t really been doing anything at all for the last while, but I’m pretty sure that this new A4 pad will put an end to that. It’s even subdivided and colour coded into different sections so I’ll definitely be like totally organised for my exams.”
Simon also bought blue and red pens, a new calculator and several highlighters which he plans on using to highlight absolutely everything, not just points of significance.
Simon, the text book procrastinator hasn’t been doing any study recently because he has an overpowering father and an underlying fear of failure and quietly tells himself that if he doesn’t work, then he has a valid excuse as to why he failed. He can therefore tell himself that if he did actually study, he probably would have done a lot better.
The new stationary is expected to rid him of these underlying emotional problems and set him up for exam success.
