Halfway through the semester
Posted 01 November 2010 - 09:37 PM
I personally am starting to really struggle. Finding myself missing class to get other things done or focus on other school work. Having trouble focussing on deadlines. Can't seem to find the time to adequately study. Generally feeling like i'm treading water and rapidly fatiguing. I've never been a struggling student in all my post secondary experiences, but now I am ashamed to admit I am struggling.
My first round of tests went well, thankfully, so I have some cushion, but I am having a hard time.
I want this so bad, but just have so much going on everywhere in my life that I am just really starting to sink and I'm worried I've gone so far off track i might not be able to get back up.
Anyone else facing a mid semester slump?

This was my motto for 4 years.. LOL I do find that it really works.
ETA: Schedule too, if you have too. My agenda was filled with times allotted to certain things. I would write down everything I had to get done in order of importance, and go down the list. You get the most important things done, and the stuff that can wait, waits. I was in an extremely intensive program, but I found that it got easier to balance as I went along. You get used to it, but it does take quite sometime. It is also definitely normal to have slumps, and even wonder why you are doing this, and if its worth it. Just remember what made you decide to do it in the first place, and why it's really important to you and the future of your family.
Good luck, its not easy, but it most definitely CAN be done.
