    I'm there with you too. This was spring break and it is over. I have a test on Monday, a test on Tuesday, My interview due on Tuesday, and paper on Thursday. Not to mention a teaching plan due in just one week. My husband has been working a lot here in the past few weeks. I can't complain because we need the money. The children (4,3) love to have mom at home, but I really needed to study this week. Did I get anything done. NO!!!! Hopefully, I can snap out of this over the weekend. I should be studing now instead of posting here. Oh well!!! Good luck all.

    Glad I'm not alone with "the bug!!!" The sad part is that my spring break is already over and I've been back for a week. I have one more week of school (which means one day of clinical and one day of classes) and then I'm off for another week and a half for Easter (not because the school gives us that much, but because I'm a Thursday & Monday student). That's too much time off to sit sround and do nothing. I (big quotes here...) "almost" wish I had more days in class so that I wasn't sitting around here watching The Surreal Life on VH1, as if I care what's going on with Peter Brady and the 20 year-old model. I guess I'll stick with the thought of "SNAP OUT OF IT!" (or try to at least!)

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one with student burnout. I'm just praying the days go by faster because graduation cannot come soon enough...MAY 7th. Pray for me. I'm praying for y'all. Keep on keepin on y'all.
    Hang in there and hang on!!

    I couldn't help but crack up after reading this. I came home from clincial and did EXACTLY what you wrote! There are a ton of dishes in my sink and my house is presentable only to fellow nursing students! Best of luck.

    Yes, I was going through this for a while. I'm better now though. Same as you, I had a huge paper due last week, lots of clinical paperwork due etc. I also found myself on the couch whenever I was home and falling asleep. Now this week, I think I've been averaging about 5 hours of sleep each night. Somedays it was maybe two hours. Of course this was all because of my procrastination. The end is finally in sight and I'm not as stressed anymore. I also have a week off of my preceptorship which I'm happy about. (My preceptor is on vacation). I need to catch up on some rest before I get sick.

    Good luck! Keep pressing on!

    You are not alone;try to remember that. For four years all I did was study. Then I worked for years, had one family crisis after another, then three deaths in the family in about two years. Now I am taking an online Legal Nurse Consulting Class and there are days I study a lot and days I don't do anything. Yes, my house is a wreck too, but the cleaning will always be there for when you feel up to it. Take care of yourself. (We nurses and those in school tend to meet others needs before our own.) Also try to get a good night's sleep. I know this is hard to do with so much on your mind.
    Hang in there. Take it one day at a time. I have to. Maybe on the weekend you could do something fun (what's that? :chuckle ) Good luck to you and keep us all posted on your progress.

    All I feel like doing is coming home from class and napping for two hours and chowing down on the most unhealthy food (pasta and Pepsi - a wonderful combination!). When I'm not sleeping, I just want to curl up on the couch in my jammies and watch my favorite TiVoed shows. I have no motivation to read, study, write this huge research paper that's due in a week (or pick a topic, for that matter ), or retype my notes. And it's not just school; it's my house too, which is so unbelievably dirty right now that I'm embarrassed. I try to think "Okay, you're done in December...just a little more to go" but it's not working. I wouldn't call it "Senioritis" just yet, just pure laziness. Aagghhh!!!! Anyone else in the same boast as me?
