maybe the slow, drawn out study of any book with long, winding notes about literary genre can ruin any book... but I dunno. Wuthering Heights just tells the story of several people wasting their lives.

Woah! I adore that book too... Surprised that so few liked it. It is one of the most emotionally touching reads I've experienced.

Yeh I loved it too! I think whoever posted about studying a novel in so much detail can ruin it is right though. My teacher loves The Grass is Singing but I don't think anyone in our class does. I suppose she did give us like an essay a night to do on it to make sure we were reading it.. I swear the chapters were on average at least 25 pages long with very small writing. I love reading but I just really dislike it!
I can't wait until the day I never have to study English again..

I loved Wuthering Heights when I read it a year ago. Now, with every chapter summary I do, I hate it more and more. Same thing happened with every other book I've ever studied in school.

I can't imagine ever growing to hate some books on the course e.g. The Book Thief, Never Let Me Go but I suppose stranger things have happened.

Yeah buddy! Going to Coláiste Cúram for the fourth (and sadly, last) year. Only thing that'll keep me going this summer.

Lads.
Now I know loads of yee are gonna tell me yee do basically nothing other than homework, and a load more are going to tell me "quality over quantity", but I really need/want to find some motivation to study.
I think if I heard all your crazy amount of time spent studying it would scare me into doing more work(Nothing like a bit of stress to get the brain juices flowing)
Heck, anything you're doing that yee find is keeping yee on top of it all? Studying a certain way, organising a certain way... doing anything!!

Your help is muchly appreciated

Feel free to mail me with any questions, hoping I do well this year. Not stressed yet and well on target for med with my mocks, it is possible to do very well easily enough but it involves using some of the work Summer before 6th year. Also, will be giving away all my notes if ye want them in the West. Best of luck!

Switched off my phone, & 'deactivated' my Facebook until after the Leaving.. and I still can't focus enough and study.. Aha, and trying to learn essays on Soils while watching Hollyoaks is down right depressing!

Then again, there was a girl in my LC Geo class who tried to find USA on a Map of Europe today.. makes me feel a little better to know I'm not THAT bad at Geography!

Generally thinking about the orals next year or having a look at the HPAT thread scares me into doing a good few hours of studying.
