Good luck! I would omit the laptop though - I recently had to take an exam and the internet was the biggest distraction, particularly facebook and reading all your blogs!

Hee hee - that sounds like me right now - minus the grapes! Good luck studying girl and believe me sleep is definitely a necessity - you need your brain to be fresh so it can retain the max amount of info! GO AKA GO!

Thank you, thank you everyone for the good wishes! Best of luck to all of you writing exams and finishing programs!

'liya, I couldn't hate you girl - you're a teacher who takes her students to the movies! Plus you're going to have to mark all those exams, I don't envy you there!
