And then apathy sets in when you realize there's no functional difference between getting 90% and 50% on any given course until third year?

Don't you need at least a 70% to pass?

Also, I can related. For all of 1st year and most of 2nd year, I was rather focused on getting that 90%.

Then I realized I was actually missing out on much of the college experience, so I traded my quest for 90% for a solid 70% and a life outside of books.

I don't regret it.

I needed academic scholarships, that was only the first two years, felt like a weight off when I could enjoy the classes.

For us we needed a 50% to pass each class. I was a solid ~55% student until third year and pulled it up to ~65% which is what I needed to enter the honors program where I got 1st class honors.

There's a difference between 'good' work, and work that's 'good enough'. If you're doing anything more than 'good enough' you're wasting your time.

It might be that you want to impress a professor to get into their grad program or whatever, and then you need a higher grade but again, working any harder than is needed to achieve that goal is just wasted effort.

That said, I waste way too much time getting things perfect when they don't need to be, so eh.

I'm gonna have to put an official halt to this for now, can't even keep my own word re: updates and communication. I might run another much shorter game or get back to this one but I don't know for sure. Thanks for following along and sorry for me being a flaky idiot!

Thanks for putting a full stop on it. It was pretty cool.

Can you give us the back plot? Also what was under our helmet? Any meatbrain at all?

I enjoyed this, I hope real life will allow you the time to even consider either coming back to this or running a different cyoa in the future.

It'd be this. At the very least this character (who still doesn't have a name btw :v) would be off the table. I'm still tinkering with the fluff and crunch on my homebrew so I'd like to use it again if I can.

A CYOA starring a nerd who tries to download a secret black facility program to give him spec ops skills but instead accidentally installs an uploaded specs ops personality in his brain would be great. But run the game on two different forums, letting two bags of squirrels try and figure out what the gently caress is going on.

I'd be down for 'ing votes in the threads to keep them bumped if this actually happened somewhere.
