I wonder how normal this is. I’m tempted to have a few beers while studying for a macroeconomics midterm I have on Tuesday. Will it affect my productivity much? =P

As I found out for most of my high school career, it will probably help you stay awake. Though, you probably still won’t get it anyway.

back before I dropped out of college. I was always drunk. Of course I never did much homework, but I swear Everclear Mixed with RC cola made my progamming skills awesome. I did all my C and FORTRAN work drunk, and I did quite well in those classes.

i find that drugs in general only make you THINK you’re being more productive. now creativity is another story, but productivity? stay sober man!

My friends used to tease me and say that if you drank while studying from exam then the only way for it to be effective is if you were drunk when taking the test. Sufficed to say I have never tried the latter part. Once I was drunk studying for an accounting test and passed with 100% the next day. To each his own I guess. LOL

Oh. to answer the question. yeah I’m a systems engineer so when I’m doing PC work for friends at the house I’ll definitely have some drinks and it works out well.

Wine Instead of Whine as You Complete Your Homework This Semester

College coursework can be arduous, but indulging in the perfect glass of wine for each assignment can make it fun.

Wine Instead of Whine as You Complete Your Homework This Semester

College coursework can be arduous, but indulging in the perfect glass of wine for each assignment can make it fun.

By Valerie Carrington, Penn State

D oing homework with wine alongside you is not taboo, but it may not be something your mother would suggest. The truth is, homework can be dull, monotonous and tedious, but homework with wine can break this wretched curse.

Drink with confidence: this pair will have you “pffing” famous duos like peanut butter and chocolate or spaghetti and meatballs. It is not about getting drunk — well, not totally anyway. Look beyond, dear reader, and find the transitory bliss of flavorful relaxation. Despite the contradictory couple, homework and your favorite special drink are a pair meant for each other (and you).

Overcome that homework hump with a glass of the good stuff. These five wines were paired just for you, so come along and see how homework can be a little less difficult and a little freer.

Dry Riesling and Trigonometry

This dynamic duo refines arithmetical warfare. Dry Riesling, a highly aromatic and equally acidic wine, is just the catch for those hypotenuse-heavy equations. This wine is suited for the tough, the fishy and the relatively smelly. It’s just right for the job.

Indeed, it’s time pair homework with wine. Enjoy a glass of this semi-sweet treat to break free from the pungent odor of those nasty equations. Riesling produces residual sugar, leaving a light and sweet flavor and keeping your senses peppy and ready to move on to the next problem.

For those of you who truly enjoy the mental mayhem, try a sweeter Riesling. This will ensure not only an easy transition into this subject but also introduce a bit more fun than you are used to.

Cabernet Sauvignon and History

Studying the rich history of our nation couldn’t be done more beautifully than pairing it with this full-bodied remedy. Even the most respected character in our nation’s history would agree: wine is a companion for the scholar, not the brawler.

Replace the whining with wining with your friends, polyphenols, the little macromolecules in dry wines like Cabernet Sauvignon. These little fellas can be found in seeds, bark and wood, bringing us back to the roots of our ancestors.

Not as acidic as its counterparts, this wine, a comfortable companion while glancing over historical dates and perusing key figures of the American frontier, is the more delicate of its species. Served at a warmer temperature, Cabernet Sauvignon is a pleasant and long-enduring spirit, which will be sure to pass its comforting black cherry-like aroma and flavor onto you as you survey the glorious haze of American beauty.

Zinfandel and Chemistry

There’s no better bond (did you see what I did there?) than a nice glass of Zinfandel to accompany those complex diagrams. This type of wine extracts the most exotic of flavors, using over-ripe nectarines, plums, boysenberry and sometimes sweet tobacco to bring an intricately medium-bodied taste. Pair homework with wine and defy the monotony of balancing those pesky chemical equations.

With Zinfandel, the attraction is more transparent than those beakers you work with. Let your tongue simmer in the lightly spiced aftertaste as you calculate boiling temperatures of different pressures — but don’t feel the pressure to partake solely in the rose-tinted Zinfandel: there’s also a white. Chemistry homework is difficult, but pairing it with Zinfandel will calm your nerves (Image via Huffington Post)

Sauvignon Blanc and English

Like literature, a glass of Sauvignon Blanc will have you exploring the meaning and context of flavors such as honeydew melon, kiwi, passionfruit and grapefruit pith. What’s their purpose? Why such fruits? It’s open to interpretation, but I am pretty sure it’s to bring you a uniquely dry nightcap. With its hints of grass and mint, let this wine transport you to the green moors of Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen and Henry James.

To encourage thought and speculation, gaze into the green-skinned grape liquid as you flip through the dense pages of your assigned reading. To pair homework with wine is to imbue an appreciation for words like “imbue.”

Relax with a dog-eared paperback while sipping this wine and be transported to a simpler time, a time where sipping wine while reading was a practice, not a suggestion. Say “cest la vie” to no longer skimming pages. Unwind and treasure the rich words laid out for your gleaming eyes to comprehend more deeply.

Pinot Gris and Art

Unless you are an art major, a simple art class is all you need to progress through your major, so draw through those abstractions with a simple glass of Pinot Gris. Produced in France and Italy, this wine will be sure to give you some inspiration in the beauty of delicate flavors from apple skins and pear sauce. With a little help from your end, these flavors will be sure to encourage you to enliven your painting or drawing.

Forget your magic eraser and have semi-erased lines streaking across your landscape? Take a sip of Pinot Gris and it will greet you with sympathy; Pinot Gris is also bitter. This dry wine is a great confidant. With the dry-inducing flavors like bitter almond and quinine, a white, flowery plant, you will be sure to feel accompanied by similar frustrations as you work out how to make a human head look less like a potato.

Look no further for your study buddy to make homework feel less like reliving a two-hour long lecture and more like an outing with friends. From the pastoral green lands of France to the meticulously crafted vineyards of Napa Valley, California, there’s a different type of wine for anyone in any field, and in this case, any subject.

There’s no need to feel hampered down studying for that huge final. As long as you have a glass of wine by your side, even the most complex of study questions becomes something you want to work at slowly so as to keep the fun going.

Feel less like a student and more like a gentleman or lady as you sip on the luxurious flavors that will revitalize your study time. Don’t be like the rest and trudge through earning your degree. Instead, be a relaxed student. Drink alcohol.

Damn, this is TSR, of course no one has done their homework drunk! 😛

Yeah, that’s probably true. The worst I’ve done is do it 15 mins before it’s due in.

i did my GCSE geography exam still drunk/begining of a mass hangover, and i mean so bad i had 3 options, sleep, be sick or complete the exam. i did the exam luckily but only managed a D with another exam that i did sober.
it wasnt my best of choices, but i got there in the end.

i probably wouldnt advise it now.

Of course, makes those uni assignments a whole lot more entertaining/bearable! Plus a midday trip to the pub between lectures on a 9-5 day is always a necessity for us here haha.
Quite a few people turned up still drunk for the first year uni exams as well.

Uni essay written partially drunk, sobering up towards the conclusion – which ended up being my weakest part.

We all therefore know the moral of the story

I’ve studied for an exam with mates whilst drunk, we all passed. (pretty damn well)

Also recently me and another group of friends did coursework whilst being ridiculously drunk and then we started buzzing. It worked out pretty well, finished coursework project and a report within 3hrs before the deadline.

Basically from my experience, it works out pretty good. Sometimes better than doing it sober. But personally I wouldn’t rely on it and do it sober instead

urm me and my mates were celebrating end of GCSE exams, but i hadnt finished and had one the next day, but proceeded to get very drunk, woke up the next morning with no money to buy food to sober me up, and the only drink we had was a pre mix of vodka and coke from the night before, so i took that to school with me to keep me awake.
i then went from my exam to a college interview, that day should never have happened.

Indeed! I see it as expressing yourself in a way that you couldn’t if you were sober

I wouldn’t say I was drunk, rather a bit tipsy and light headed after a couple of glasses of wine

Went brilliantly, think it’s because you lose the sense of pressure. My language was a tad more flamboyant and artistic haha

I’ve noticed however that recently on a weekend if I’ve had a couple of drinks, I have the urge to get some work out 😛

Who decides after they’ve had a few beers, that what they want to do is coursework?

yea I do all my homework drunk. although I’m in year 13 it still turns out alright. Also I’m a year older that everyone in my year because I repeated year 12 so being in sixth form for 3 years gets so boring and one simply turns to alcohol in the event of homework lol.

I used to drink espressos (150mg caffiene) which are like the equivalent to 3 cans of red bull while doing homework to keep my pace up but now I just don’t give a rat’s butt about efficiency.

HMMM I got some summary questions to do for OCR chemistry, let’s get the Mojitos out!
