    Last week and next week are college finals for me........ and well, right now I have "A"s in all my classes but I just can't seem to motivate myself to study! Yesterday, I felt really good so I studied for at least 10hrs... but today, I'm just blah... I can't even blame it on IC because that's doing so much better... but mentally I'm just drained! How do I fix it? Tommorow morning I have a cumulative trig exam and I didn't really study for it ..there won't be any new material on it though which is good and I have a 99 average in the class... I'm still just a little frustrated though because it's really old material from the beginning of the semester... Also, on Tuesday I have a gigantic biology final which I have studied a lot for the entire semester... yet I still feel unprepared and overwhelmed and like I just can't find the energy/motivation to study anymore! It would just really suck if I worked hard all semester long, just to blow it during finals but I can't force myself to study... when I just look at a text book I want to cry! I guess I'm just tired... and now I'm just rambling... I guess posting on here is just one more thing I can do to avoid studying........ I just hate it when I know there is something I need to do but I can't find the will power to do it

    Oh, that's pretty typical for college. You're burned out at this point, and you're expected to do the hardest work of the semester.

    I don't know what to tell you. Some people find that promising themselves treats after X amount of work helps.

    I remember once when I was in college, I wandered into a friend's room and said, "Give me some motivation to study!" He looked at me for a second, and then said, "OK, if you get an A, I'll give you a dollar." I just started laughing so hard, it broke up my tension, and I was able to get back to work. (End of story: I got an A- so we compromised on 50 cents. )

    Do something to blow off some steam, and then get back down to it. It'll be over soon.
    Je vous souhaite de la joie, de la bonne santée, et tout ce qu'il y a de bon dans la vie.
    Wishing you happiness and good health, and all the best out of life.

    Peace, Carolyn

      Thanks.. that's really good advice... Yesterday I rewarded myself with tootsie pops... haha, I ate about 16 of them though but today I didn't do that which I think is why I had a hard time buckling down and just studying.... luckily all those tootsie pops haven't caused a flare for me (wouldn't suggest them for diet sensitive ICers though)!

      I feel ok right now about my 8am math final tommorow morning... I've studied hard the entire semester so that has to count for something... plus, I worked out that I can get a 70 and still have an A in the class YAY! haha (that won't work for bio though)

          haha actually I did get an "A" on the bio final! Not so sure about math yet but I'm positive that I got an "A" in the class... The bio final was insanely difficult and the only reason that I did get an "A" was because I didn't study! Because I rested the two days before, I was able to answer the more challenging questions that just required intensive thought and problem solving skills! Interestingly, the material that I would have spent more time studying was not even on the exam! (I did study for a few WEEKS before hand so it wasn't as if I was totally unprepared... I had just hit a wall)

          Anyhoooooooooo, so I'm home now and quite happy with how my semester turned out.... and I feel quite impressed with myself that even though I was registered with the office of student dissabilities, that I didn't have to use their resources at all!

          Now I have a summer class at home to look forward to, and an insane semester that I have planned for myself in the fall!!!!!!!
