Some crazy third year woes.

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone,

    I am looking for some advice on a serious problem which has seemed to surface recently. For a bit of background, I have just become a third year graphic communication student at a uni which I really wanted to get into. My first year was great, met some amazing people who I am still friends with today, classes were fun and I just generally had a great time.

    Then second year came along where we were asked to specialise into a specific course, which was fine. I chose the course which best suited me and I got on with my studies.However then things started to look more dismal and I had to learn to deal with anxiety and despondency from probably around half way through the year, which seemed to appear from nowhere, however managed to remain faithful to the course and stick it out despite some severe low moments. I don't know where these feelings came from, I just know that it took all of my energy to get through the second half of the year as I lost interest in everything.

    Throughout summer I was fine, but three weeks into my third year and I am already having incredibly low moments within my studies. I have lost all interest in the subject and therefore have no motivation to produce any of the work. The course is sucking me dry from my love of design and I am beginning to hate it. All day everyday I am feeling anxious about everything and I don't know what to do anymore. I don't have the energy to tackle this year in the same way I did last year, and don't know what to do about it really. I don't want to be feeling like this for another year.

    I have spoken to my tutor who has referred me to student support and I am waiting on a reply from them.

    Does anyone have any advice or suggestions as I am really stuck here.
