End of Semester Stress

Okay the semester for me is three more weeks, it seems like for everyone else it’s two. I laid out my plan for the next three weeks and there’s a lot I have to do. I thought I had more but for some reason I can’t read my schedule and I think that everything due way sooner than it actually is. I think it is my brain telling me not to procrastinate.

I just got back from Thanksgiving break and I got a good amount of stuff done, I still have a lot to do though. I have to write an article based on data taken last week and a “blog post” based on two very short poems. The blog post has to be longer than the poems which is just very difficult for me to do.

I am dealing with my stress by making lists and rewarding myself with simple things like chocolate and walks to the water fountain. My roommate doesn’t get back until tomorrow so I don’t have to feel bad about having the light on late and typing up a storm tonight. The stream of coffee and other caffeinated drinks for me is slow. Caffeine is a stimulant so when I’m already stressed it really doesn’t help my anxiety at all. I am trying to stick to a cup a day but I’m pretty sure I’ll end up breaking that during the next few weeks. I am very tired and it’s 9:40. I have a long way to go tonight.

I wish everyone luck with their studies and papers and everything professors are throwing at you the last few weeks of the semester. Reward or stress tips anyone? Ironically when I’m less stressed I’ll be making a list of tips so if you comment with some I’ll link you in the post.

    Good luck with all of your work! I’m definitely feeling it right now too. As far as tips, I have really had to work on allowing myself to take breaks/do something fun every once and a while. I tend to feel guilty when I do, but it helps my productivity so much.

    Mary,
    First, I want to re-post a comment that seems to not have saved on your blog. I had mentioned that being single is okay and that you shouldn’t rush into a relationship, especially if you don’t like anyone. I also asked how you got those awesome snowflake looking things on your page!

    Also, I wish you all the luck on your papers and exams as well; I know you’ll do great! Remember to take small breaks and even naps if you have the time. Also, I know what it’s like to try to rush and get things out of the way, but sometimes if you have the time, you should try to pace yourself; making sure you don’t wear yourself out! Maybe if you have a few dollars, you should splurge on yourself and buy yourself a little something after working so hard! Once again, I wish you good luck and I hope you have a great Christmas break! Keep in touch!

      I did not get that comment! I’m not sure where I got them because I clicked a button last year but I’m going to find out and let you know!

      Thank you for the advice I’ll be sure to put that in! Good luck on your exams! Let me know how they go, you’ll be done before me so email me if you need anything or just to talk!

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!
