Here I am, sitting on my bed, my laptop humming away beside me. I’ve got a mess on my floor made up of clothes, books (mostly novels that I want to read for fun) and random other papers. There’s a notebook opened on my right side, a text book on my left. I have one short paper left to write, an exam to study for and a little bit of marking left. And what am I up to? Nothing. I just finished playing some video games and now I’m spacing off. Sounds like another productive day at the end of the year.
I always find this time of year to be the worst. In December you’re ready for a break, but you’re still motivated come the new year. When April hits, you’re finished. Maybe you have some motivation for the first paper or exam that you have, but when it’s time to get ready for the last one, boom! You’re done. You just want summer to be here now.
This year’s even worse than most years. I don’t know about anyone else, but I feel like I haven’t had a break since Christmas. Oh, that’s right: I DIDN’T have a break since Christmas. This is the first year where Study Week happened and I actually studied all week. So it’s understandable that my motivation is at zero right now.
Thankfully, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Like I said, I have only three things left to do, and they should all be finished by Tuesday. And then it’s celebrating time! I just need to find the motivation to finish everything off.
Thank goodness I don’t have any summer courses!!!!
