    I tend to obsess over my papers and try to get every detail right, so it takes me forever to finish. Which is dumb because the average student is so stupid that even my rough drafts are better than their dissertations. So really, I should just get words on paper and call it a night.

    So I thought I'd sit here with a couple martinis and it would make me pump out words without caring so much about the little nit-picky details.

    But alas, now I'm drunk and starting threads on sherdog. And my paper is sitting here unwritten.

    What do, bros?

    Stop pretending you are smarter than other people. You are not.

    I thought drinking helped my Muay Thai at one point. I used to have trouble with pivoting all the way with my body kick, and would pre-pivot alot. When i was hammered, I was able to fully pivot all the way through, the kick was alot harder.

    When I experimented on weight cutting, I managed to get 12lbs off at the time, and thought since alcohol dehydrates you it might help a bit. So during my 3rd fight, 1 day out where I shifted from loading to actually cutting (from 2 gallons to 1L) I just drank half my allocated calories in vodka. That was fun. I stopped doing that method after that fight, because even after re-hydrating and eating full on 24h weigh-in 2 days later, I still felt kinda fucked up, it was a tournament fight too...

    I hate assignments. My trick was to do them like I was doing a test where I had the questions. Do a night of research and bookmark anything to reference then sit there the next day with an hour or two time limit and a pen and paper. Write down all the answers and then type it up.

    That way rather than typing and re-typing sentences and paragraphs I could go over it once or twice and be done. Also reading the paper aloud helps. Feels stupid but it helps.

    Light up a trunk tree and relax. After you set the alarm clock. You will wake up fucked and mentally damaged, but with a sense of urgency. If you're able, you will manage perfectly.
    I do. Every single time.

    I went back to uni a few years ago for an MBA and found homework easier with a glass of red. We used to do a lot of online meetings and most of us would have a drink during it, good times.

    I used to use moonshine as a motivational tool to actually buckle down and write my lab reports and study. I used to also take my tests with a solid buzz...usually made Gin/OJ drinks in OJ bottles and would sip on them during my tests. It worked for me as it was preemptive reward to finally get me to do what I was always pushing off until later.

    My engineering lab reports were brutal and usually took me 8-10 hours, so the night before they were due I'd tie on a solid buzz and then sip on moonshine all night long while writing them. Otherwise I could never force myself to actually write a few sentences without erasing them and trying again. It worked for me though as I usually ended up with report grades in the 80-85% and I was happy with those numbers. These reports were fucking ludicrous and usually ended up being 10-15 pages (including charts, figures, etc) and had to be insanely detailed to score high.

    So I say go for it as long as it works for you. I graduated college with an engineering degree drinking my through the entire thing with the exception of my final semester...after a rough drinking binge over the Thanksgiving break I decided to sober up. This was the first time in my life that I finally felt the physical effects from drinking and that scared the hell out of me. 5+ years sober now, but I was in my early 30's and had been drinking almost everyday of my life since I was 18, so it was time.
