    Ever since I came back to school after half term, things just have not been the same .

    I've always been a hard worker and got good grades I got 5As at AS and 10A*s in my GCSEs. I've even already got 3 offers from unis that are in the top 5 for my degree.

    I don't understand what's wrong. I used to enjoy doing maths and physics. I used to enjoy learning and revising. I used to go on for 3 hours or more just doing maths and physics and I loved it. I loved it.

    Now when I sit down to do anything I have no concentration. I have no willpower. I have lost all motivation. Lost all ambition. I have no will to revise but its at the back of my mind all the time.

    I have spent 8 hours+ every day this half term sitting on my desk chair procrastinating work..


    I have an admissions exam for Cambridge in a couple days and I have done minimal revision for it. Even when I done it, I got an extremely low mark.

    I don't know what's wrong, I don't know what's happening to me?

    I even have an interview in 2 weeks and It like I don't care. I havent booked a ticket to get there.

    I've been gaining weight, eating chocolate and food all day to borrow my prorastination.

    I end up spending the day watching videos about alexander the great on youtube and other history related stuff and end up doing nothing.


    I used to get worried when I know I had something to do but now I have a month's worth of work and I still havent even started and the admissions exam and interviews and school work.

    ( What's happening to me?

    My dreams to make it to the Elite unis is dying .

    what's happening to me?

    Hey! I know how are you feeling, it has happened even to me two years ago. I felt as if nothing was enough important to spend my time for. Then I've found the solution.
    My suggestion is to keep in mind your dreams, who you want to be, how much is it important to you and think why those universities have chosen you.
    You need to focus on what you will achieve, I found that having someone to compete with for the best marks was really helpful, obviously he/she needs to be better or at your same level. Anyway I know that this is something that works only for some people.

    I hope this will be helpful to you... and never give up💪💪
