i remember i used to cram when i was in college. cramming gives me this special thrill and excitement. and when i'm about to reach the deadline, i feel like my project would have been better if only i had more time to look for more information and materials. did you cram while in college?

Yep, I crammed. Pulled my share of all-nighters. But as a teacher now, gotta put in my two cents worth and remind everyone that research shows that cramming and all-nighters defeat the purpose.

I've done my share of cramming when I was in college. Back then, I remember that during short quizzes or exams, I survive pretty well if I cram since I had a photographic memory. But for long exams or term exams, cramming doesn't really work that well for me. There are times that I feel so incompetent and so irresponsible whenever I cram. I would ask myself where did I spend my time and how that I am in this predicament. Yes, it is thrilling, and even fun at times. But not when you're cramming for a major subject that will make or break your degree.

I think most students have a craming while in college, maybe because not all of the questions we can solve.

Always. Students have other priorities other than school that they end up cramming.
