How did you cope with your hardest semester?

    I was not sure whether to put this in general discussion or academic guidance. In any case, I am curious to hear about how you managed your hardest semester in college. Whether it was a very tough schedule, and jobs, or both! Or any other combination of things.

    I didn't manage it well at all. I was working 35 hours a week (with a long commute), taking upper division QM and E&M.

    I was so pressed for time, I stopped all socializing. That wasn't too hard. Then I cut back on exercise and sleep. Bad, bad decision!

    Being stressed, isolated, and sleep deprived makes you weird.
