I’m at that point in the semester where I have ten billion things to do, but I just want to watch TV.
My motivation walked out on me. I’m also sleeping more than I did earlier in the semester. Read into that what you will.
I had more energy in January. But now I’m exhausted. To be fair, I’m sleeping later than I should.
In a way, I have more free time because baseball ended and hasn’t begun. But essays exist. Exams exist. Both are the bane of my existence.
At least everything is coming together, albeit a bit slowly.
Still, I love that feeling of all the pieces starting to come together.
I’m excited for this semester to be over. Summer feels so close, yet so far away. It’s just around the corner.
First, I need to get through all these evaluations.
What do you prefer: essays or exams?
There are pros and cons to both. All things considered, I think I prefer essays more. I hate studying, but I love writing.
This semester I have more essays than exams, and I don’t have a problem with that whatsoever. Says the girl who’s struggling to write them right now.
I don’t mind essay based exams either.
I can write. I don’t need to study in the sense of memorizing facts or dates, which is the sort of studying I despise the most.
Then again, writing a good essay takes time. I don’t care who you are. No one writes a great paper in twenty minutes.
With exams, even essay based ones, there’s less or no editing involved. I enjoy not having to edit.
All you need to know about me is I love writing, and I hate pretty much everything else. Studying. Driving.
For now, I turn my focus towards not failing. But more importantly, I’ll take care of myself during this busy time. No matter what, I will listen to my body.

reminds if my school, college, day and night studies!!
Ah, I hope it’s a good reminder. 🙂
I’ve actually been feeling the same way. No motivation and I’ve been sleeping in a later. I think the time change really messed me up this year even though it usually doesn’t.
I think it would depend on the class, but I think I’d prefer essays. Good luck with it all, I’m sure you’ll do great!
Yeah, the time change didn’t help at all. It’s during such a busy time as well.
That’s true. Certain subjects almost ask for certain assessments. Thank you!

Your assessment of the feelings at this point in the semester are spot on–both for the students AND the professors!
Ah, sometimes I forgot professors have a lot on their plate as well.
