No, I study because I care about what kind of future I'm going to have if I don't get good grades '
I always studied a subject for 2 hours or so, took a 10-minute break, and then started studying on another subject, and so on.

When I'm done, then I can do things like get on the computer, or read books.
I have to say, if you're choosing Pokemon over studying, you're going to fail at life -.-'

No. Never.

You really shouldn't, seeing as pokemon has absolutely no real impact on your life in any way whatsoever. I mean, there have been other things that have distracted me from my studies, but never...pokemon xD;

...Plus, everyone knows that earthquake has no effect on Gengar with the ability Levitate anyways [/lolluzr]

It's settled. Warheart is EPIC WIN.

No, I haven't been pokehooked like that before, not really. Meh, there once was an EV training bender I was in, but my work was more important.

Uh, no..

Mostly because I care very much about my grades, and I like all the courses that
I'm following, so yeah .

I play Pokémon usually when I'm bored, or I when I don't have anything else to do, but never before a test/task ._.

Well. This is easy.

I don't study at all. It's bad luck for me. :D

So I guess when I should be "studying" I'm doing something else. xD

Pokemon has stopped me from sleeping before, but it's never stopped me from studying. Whether or not I study and for how long usually depends on how comfortable I feel with the material; generally, I look something over for at least 5 minutes. By the way, my GPA is 99.3 without weighted courses. [/modesty]

Please, I stop studying just to stare at the ceiling and do nothing. Which probably explains why my grades suck (I HATE YOU SO MUCH PRE-CALCULUS. YOU HAVE NO IDEA). I care about my grades, but not enough to work up the motivation to do something about them. :(

This is how I used to be.

And then I started taking high school math courses.

I hate you. Give me your brain.

I never study to start with (I can settle with being a B average person, but at the same time I wish I had studied so that I could be an A average guy), I don't have the attention span to do that

However, Super Smash Bros. Brawl already knows four pokemon characters.
Should a character be deleted and replaced with Lucario?
Which character should be forgotten?
1,2, and... ... ... Poof!
Super Smash Bros. Brawl forgot Mewtwo.

lol same. I'm really bad at revising for exams. I done my AS levels last month and I revised about 1 or 2 days before the exam o.O I'll do some a week before if I'm in the mood, perhaps 2. It's not that I don't care, I actually really worry about it, it's just that I can't be bothered.

But do you people mean you actually study...when you have no exams!? Surely not...? You people all have exams this year, right? Or are you just on about homework? I didn't do any of my homework in Year 10 or 11 XD But I've got better since I've been going to college, I actually hand in my essays now (not always on time but that's not the point).

I've always wondered, what age do you have to be to leave school in America and Australia? You can leave school in the UK at 16

I normally play on Pokemon when I get up so I end up pushing back homework to spend another hour on Pokemon but eventually I will do it, but maybe a couple of hours later.

It's usually 18 (possibly due to the xtra 7-8th grades) for graduating HS. When i came from the Philippines I was surprised (since my classmates were graduating HS in 16 while I was stuck in 7th Grade....

I barely study, but when I do, nothing distracts me. I literally lock myself in my room's closet so there are no distractions.
