    Hey Maggie,

    I have been there also! and this past weekend I simply goofed off instead of doing 24/7 studying! ...now I am paying for it as I pulled a all-nighter studying tuesday for a wednesday exam. I passed, but wasnt the grade I wanted! Now I am having a hard time catchin up on my sleep!!! I am about to go to bed early tonight...get a good nights sleep, and hit the books tomorrow...right after I clean the kitchen, get the laundry started, and do grocery shopping.

    I find if I make a to do list, and prioritize it, and cross things off that get completed, it helps me stay focused on what I still need to do.

    So now for the 'stern' lecture! Get off your tush and prioritize what you MUST do!!! You are talking about your future here! its just gotta be done!

    ok..so hope I helped ya!

    that works for me is having a close friend/study partner to prod you along. We "kick" each other in the rear when we each need it! Also just by talking with her and knowing how much she has accomplished...gets me going back on track ...and vice versa. So give your friend/study partner a call and tell find out how much they have done...and if they are goofin off... then agree to help each other get going!!! :smiley_ab

    I'll slap you and yell "snap out of it!" if you want me too. LOL

    Good luck. I should be studying too. We all hit the skids, I do just about every course I've ever taken.

    My hubby and I have a 5 year plan for me to finish school and then sell out current home and buy our dream home. There is a house near us that would definatly be my dream home so when I am feeling like I want to quit I drive by that house and picture my kids playing in the yard. The owners probably think I am stalking them but heh whatever gets me through school right?

    I think almost every nursing student goes through a similar experience. What kept me going through my own 'dark night of the soul' (winter term, second year of ADN program) was to pull out my old food-stamp card, which I'd laminated and kept in a dresser drawer as a reminder of hard times, and just look at it........I still do that on occasion, when I don't feel like going to work and need some inspiration. Kicks my butt off the couch every time! :chuckle
