If you’re now a graduating student, you have thrice the workload of school works compared to lower years.

You would experience three days straight without sleep, just to finish everything you need to finish before the deadline.

You will always be in front of your laptop, typing until your hands can no longer move. You can’t stop working, because all works will be piled up. Continue reading “Rush Papers, Everywhere.”
