It's Sometimes Hard to Study

W: Ugghh, I'm so exhausted…

M: What have you been studying?

W: The exam I have next week. We're going to be tested on these three chapters. Hey… I'm going for a study break. Do you want pizza?

(3 hours later)

M: Hey, it's been three hours! What are you doing now?

W: I'm on the fourth season of Friends! Chandler met a pretty girl, only to find out she's dating Joey! But Chandler keeps getting to know her, and he falls in love. And Ross is trying to make Rachel jealous by mentioning the woman he's dating. But she argues back by talking about her new boyfriend. But Ross' girlfriend is using him as a babysitter, and Rachel's boyfriend steals from her.

M: Ah! I don't care! You should be studying for your exam!

W: That's not until later this week. And I've already studied today.

M: What? You took 15 minutes to look over one page?

W: I want to let the information sink in.

M: You were texting while you were reading?

W: We were having a DISCUSSION about the exam topic.

M: Oh, I see. So your exam is about "that totes rad party on the weekend"?

W: Hey, don't read my texts!

M: You should be doing your work!

W: I only have 7 more episodes of this season. Then I'll go back and study.

M: Fine, do whatever you want.

(A few days later)

W: Aahhh! What have I done!?

M: It's 12 o'clock at night. Why are you being so loud!?

W: I forgot about the homework I have due tomorrow!
