Anyone Having A Hard Time Getting Motivated After Summer Break?

  1. i'm 3rd semester and i'm having the hardest time getting back to my old study habits. it's so frustrating. sometimes, i wish they'd just have the program w/ no long breaks throughout. all breaks do for me is make me lose my groove.
    anyone else feel like this?

    I didn't want to lose my groove, so I read, prepared, practiced and read some more. Starting last week was a breeze because I just picked up where I left off.

    It shouldn't take you long to get back your groove. It is good that you took a break.

    Yes, But I didn't have a long break. We had to go all through summer. we got only 1 week off. I'm in term 5 (out of 8 ) and I'm tired. It's hard getting motivated. I just want to be done. I compare it to being pregnant, it's exciting in the begining, then you just want it over with. I can't even open my books. When is May ever going to be here?

    ....yeh, i know what ya mean (tired, unmotivated, & want to be done) and i DID have a break. so, i guess i'm just sick of it....LOL.
    you comparing it to pregnancy is a good analogy, real good!!!....by the end of my pregnancy i was saying "GET THIS THING OUT OF ME,.... NOW!!!"..LOL

    anyway, i'll be done in may also...THANK GOD!

    I'm having the same problem as Tanzanite. I am in an accelerated program, semester 2 of 4. We went all summer with only a week off, and I stayed busy that week. I feel like I got no break at all! Plus now our schedule has changed so our day off is Friday. Initially I thought great, long weekend - but the problem is the LONG WEEK before and after it! It is only Tues and I am exhausted. I feel like I need a vacation already, and we have until December before semester break!!! Some of my classmates seem so motivated, and I am just not. I am getting it done, but barely. Hopefully I will get a second wind here soon! Good luck everyone - hang in there!

    I know exactly how you feel!! I graduated August 11 from an LVN program then went right back for a couple of pre-reqs for the RN bridge program. I am having a VERY hard time getting motivated. I guess it's because I studied my butt off the last few weeks for our HESI test and I think I burned myself out. On top of all that I'm supposed to take boards on October 7. I'm slowly getting back into it, but it's been hard!
