    Recently I've had a fudge load of work to do and it's been stressing me out, recently I got this really hard assignment to do with a week to do it in (it's due next Thursday), I'm sat here trying to do it now but I just can't motivate myself. Not only that but the thought keeps going through my mind of "what's the point". To be honest I kind of feel everything in my life is pretty crappy right now, I've been single far to long and it's making me feel lonely, especially around Christmas which is like the worst time to be single, I'm also pretty much skint right now so I can't go out and enjoy myself which makes the whole stress thing worse. On top of that it's Christmas so I'm worrying about not being able to buy presents or enjoy my time at home (because I have no money). Anyway, just wanted to get that off my chest, any help would be nice while I attempt this damn essay again.

    I'm in the exact same position as you at the moment! So much going on now that it's christmas, pure worrying. And yeah I've a **** load of coursework to be doing, but it's really daunting to start it because there is so much to do, in such a short space of time Would really like some constructive advice of this aswell please!

    I'm also feeling exactly the same as you guys at the moment whilst doing my A levels. I've got coursework and retakes to worry about and there's so much work, yet I just can't bring myself to do it. It's like the more work I get, the more I want to avoid it

    I don't have this problem at all. Because my motivation just tends to be the sooner I get something done, the sooner I can relax and enjoy Christmas.

    Oh, and there's nothing wrong with a single Christmas :rolleyes: what about family? not everything is about relationships you know!

    That's why you should start as soon as you get it, before it starts to build up.

    And the purpose of neg rep was what? The OP asked for advice, I gave it to him. Do you work before it builds up.

    I know neg rep means nothing, but I don't like it, it's so negative. Why can't people be positive and happy? :sad: Haha you poor people. Ah well, if that's the kind of attitude you want then that is fine :yep: I just feel sorry for you.

    I start work as soon as I get it but it's important to prioritise and it gets so that I start having to put things on hold to meet other deadlines etc etc, and that it how it builds up. So that solution doesn't exactly work.

    Your life sounds a lot like mine... :sigh:

    You just gotta do it. Think of the relief when it's over, and hopefully the happiness you'll feel when you get a good grade.
