    Since I have been home from uni for easter I have done about 10 minutes worth of work. At uni I feel really motivated and get my essays done a week or sometimes 2 weeks early :eek: Ive got a 2000 word essay and a 3000 word risk asessment report due in on the first day back so I must get my arse into gear!! Does anyone else have this problem? Or have you all done all your work/loads of revision already?

    :p: :p: Trouble is I'd get them done if I was there. I think theres something in the air at home, it makes me lazy.

    I must do some tonight

    I can't get motivation either which is bad since I have finals soon!! I really want to do better than I did last year, and I think I'm doing a bit more work so far, but it's really hard when I see how much there is to do and I start panicking about not finishing it! Hopefully when I get back to uni, everyone will be in the library and I'll have no choice but to work. Am a bit worried about feeling really pressured and getting stressed out though

    There's loads of work I planned to get down this easter, but so far I have done hardly any. I think I might go back a couple of days earlier when no one is around and hopefully that will motivate me to get something done.

    oh dear two exams the end of next week and will have had a 5 week easter break to fit in plenty of revision... for some reason my motivation to work all day, day after day has been pretty terrible. Been working a fair bit this week, but still, my brain obviously hasn't yet realised that its kinda important to do well in exams.

    Wooo, Ive done about 1000 words for my risk asessment report. Must do more though cos I have another essay after this. Thankfully I was uber organised with my other 2 essays due in after easter and did them at uni last semester

    Have found a way of helping with exam revision is to do past papers periodically, and see how much more I can do each time. That's one of the few things which seems to motivate me...:rolleyes:

    I'm exactly the same, I just don't work at home. I come back with lots of good intentions and all my books... but somehow I find myself with a week to go and not a single book unpacked :rolleyes: I don't know what it is but I just don't manage to sit down and work when I'm here.
