So when you already know your future and it is so much more alluring then your current life is; it is just to easy to get burn out. Normally one person is there to cheer the other one up. But with both of us going to school and with how busy both of us are when either of us started falling behind it means that both of us fell behind because the other person had to get them back in line. (It sure felt like it was me doing more of the encouraging though.)
So our escape was TV shows downloaded from the internet, or renting them from the library. We would watch shows while writing our papers and there always seemed to be more to do so we seemed to burn though a lot of shows.
