I think the worse period for me was after exams. I would feel quite anxious the weeks before, usually procrastinate to no end, and then think "wait will it's all over ... ahh". When it was all over, that walk from the pub back to your room and there are books and papers flung all over the place.

You have to move all of it off your bed so you can lie in it -- and I always felt kinda empty, apathetic. No great joy or excitement, just your "life" for the past 3 months over and you don't know what to do you with yourself. Normally 3-hour nap and return to the pub again until the overdraft is gone.

i have two notebooks, that i use for memory, so i learn a concept and then scribble it onto paper.....

but im totally digital, my entire system is organised by module on my laptop.

My room doesnt suffer, my mind just does and its the grindin thats difficult, and maybe this is more specific to me, but i really have days where everything seems so perfect like my thoughts are collected and fluid and then somedays i feel like i have to restart and am so lost lol.

Yeah it's such a weird time, I feel like the more you know the more you realise you don't know which is why you constantly fluctuate between confidence and feeling overwhelmed. I feel like the whole exam period for students is so unlike any other experience in life, it's just like an emotional rollercoaster. You have this incredible amount of stress for weeks-months and then walking out of your last exam all of that stress just stops, and then you move onto this kind of depressive, apathetic state where you can't remember how to function in day-to-day life without the stress of revision, then of course there is the nervousness about results' day.

You've described me, post-exam, except the last sentence. After exams I have to haul my butt back to work. Shame I can't work and binge on beer (to soothe my post-exam depression) at the same time.

Damn. Life is so damned unfair.....:cry:

Haha, to be fair, I added the beer comment to make the whole thing less miserable rather than it being a consistent practice.
