It's there on the transcript. Final. Forever.Anyone else having trouble getting motivated/ burnt out.
Any suggestions on how to make myself get some energy and kick it in this final week?
That absolutely terrifies me, and I get to work. Hang in there, and keep at it!

Starting at 9 tonight, studying for the day ends.
Change your sheets.
Run long, hot bubble bath. Pour a glass of wine or make a cup of tea. Soak and shave and do tonails and push back cuticles and wash off the facial mask you applied.
You WILL be sleepy. Put on a clean nightie (or not) and crawl into bed.
GO TO SLEEP.
I remember at the end of a semester being in the car and thinking, "If I close my eyes I can go to sleep." NOT a good move on the interstate.
The studying will be there in the morning, and the good night's sleep will refresh not only your body but your sould.
Hang in there. The end of the term is almost here and you're all doing well.

Had I given myself enough time to really think (I was working full-time and going to school full-time, and maintaining a 4.0), I would have realized that I wasn't on the right path. I went to law school as well (only I stuck it out an entire year...should have followed my instincts, and not my grades, and left after the first semester). I also totally agree about being stressed out 100% of the time not being good for you--that's a big part of the reason I left the legal field. Out of curiosity, how do you plan to handle your stint in law school on your nursing school application?Hang in there... Be sure to take it easy over Winter Break (which means no mini-mester classes!) Seriously, I should have taken that advice back in 2004. I ended up getting so burnt out from taking A&P I and Micro at the same time, that I totally switched my major to economics...
Boy do I regret that now! After attending a semester of law school, I've decided I want to be a nurse again. I wasted 3 years!
Just don't overload yourself, or you'll end up like I did....in debt up to my eyeballs from switching majors....I thought I could do it... I was a robot! But sometimes you just can't handle being stressed 100% of the time... I don't think it's good for our mental health.
