I have totally lost my drive, and I still have half the semester to go!! Mid term grades are coming out this week and I am doing fine. I just have lost all steam. What do you do to keep motivated?
I start up another clinical in a few weeks and things are just going to get more crazy.
here's my take on it, some semesters may be better or worse than others. last semester i "rocked" w/ my study habits, this semester....not so much!
classmates have been asking lately..... "you probably have all the reading done already, practice questions answered, ect...right??" and when i say, "nope, haven't even started yet!" they say, "wwwhhaaaatt!!!!! that's not like you, what's wrong????" and basically, i don't have an answer for them????
frankly, i think i'm going through "reality shock" early....ya-know, instead of it happening as a new grad, it's happening now!!......bits of depression, , feeling overwhelmed & thoughts of....I CAN'T DO THIS, IT'S TOO MUCH PRESSURE!!!!!( I'll be done w/ the program in may). BUT, i do think it's starting to let up (it's been 2 mos. now), because my outlook has been slowly getting better.....
all i can say is if you need to take a day off & double up on studing on another day, then do it! whatever it takes so that you get a break once in awhile.....that is what i've been doing to get through this "episode" i'm having and i still have a solid "B", so it's possible to still get a decent grade!
