Well, school is about to start back up (this Thursday for me) and I’ve slacked off so badly over the summer (shame on me) that I can’t help but be nervous. How am I supposed to balance relearning algebra (as I skipped a full year of it and hardly remember the basic formulas anymore) as well as keeping a good grade point and watching 4-6 episodes of anime each day? To top things off this will be my first school year as a working lad. My time is going to be sparse.

One of the most time consuming of things is research, which is the foundation of this thread. Here is a place where you can come on and say, “Do you have any reliable websites for information on X” Where X is the subject of some report. For example:

You: “Does anybody know a good website for learning about Darwinism?”

Me: “Sure, try this website. http://www.darwins-theory-of-evolution.com/

This is also a place to recommend books for research:

You: “What book would be good for learning about Greek History?”

Me: “Try glancing over Herodotus’ Histories. Those are our main source for Greek history in general, especially the Persian Wars and Thermopylae. Although, if you are more interested in the mythology you can try The Theogony of Hesiod. For more modern books you can look up The Greeks at War by Philip de Souza, Waldemar Heckel &Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones.”

Also, this is a place where you can come and have people explain things you don’t understand to you. Like an online tutor. This will require some of the older Crers to participate and donate some time, but I’m sure it will work out and that people will be grateful. It’s like a random act of kindness toward somebody you will never meet, doesn’t that make you tingle?

Anyway, I find the best way to learn is to teach. So this will be helpful for both askers and...answer...ers...

(P.S *Whisper*I wont stop people from trading answers.*whisper*)

EDIT:

Note, this most likely isn't the best place for help on -math- subjects...

this is why i deliberately enrolled in a third rate college so that i can still be on top without even trying... i go on anime binges once in a while so it's 2 seasons in one night when that happens... or i just keep on stumbling until 3am...

Start watching 2-4 episodes a day, use the extra hour(ish) to brush up on your basic algebra.

Cut back to 1-2 episodes a month(ish) before exams, use the two hours for study and baking.

Hmmm? Yes, well I get A’s and B’s without too much trouble. Last year I didn’t study at all and the lowest grade I got was an 80. The problem is that now an 80% is not acceptable. This is my jr. year so I have to maintain a higher GPA. Nothing lower than an A.

None the less, cut back on anime O_O are you people mad?! Asking a nerd on my level to cut back on anime is like asking a a vampire to cut back on the blood of unhappy people! …*Has been watching too much Karin….*

Anime comes first, then my future. *Nod-nod* Anyway, I’ll make myself a fortune regardless of school. I only try and do good because it makes my mother happy.

If you're really that worried about your grades, don't watch six episodes a day.

Seph you know better than trying to make this a serious help thread, it will get killed. Regardless I'm willing to help simply because I have nothing better to do at work.
