hi i have a deadline pls can you say something motivating Watch
And yet I can't be because I have a deadline on monday and another in january and I just don't think I'm going to meet either.
Feeling sad. Feeling bad.
I'm incredibly nauseatingly stressed. The thought of cartridge paper is making me feel sick to the core of my being.
I essentially have three days. I have a hell of a lot of drawings to do and I can't stop crying bc I just don't know how I'll do it.
There's a caliginous atmosphere in my mind and I still cannot visualise anything.
My brain has officially shutdown. I need to draw things which require this once effortless skill. It is horribly affecting my progress.
It's like having an exam and not being able to read the question.
Quite obviously, in order to write you need to read. Therefore you can't write bc you can't read and so you're stuck in this mid-section and even when you put all your willpower into trying to read, the absolute most you can vocalise is a single syllable every 30 seconds.
And it's like that for every single word and there are hundreds of words and you still haven't written your essay bc you've barely read anything to be able to enable you to write and it takes incredible strength and time to keep trying bc it just feels like you're getting nowhere.
I just took a shower and cried about it and my hair is wet and I need to dry it and now I'm sat down and I'm sobbing hard.
My more ebullient attitude I had felt at the beginning of this term has rapidly dissipated.
I am exhausted and defeated and I can't think clearly and I have no energy to keep going.
Hence this thread.
I aim to update as I hopefully complete things.
hi i'm crying again
so eventually managed to get a bit done yesterday evening
but now i'm finding this really really hard and i can't do it
i'm stuck on this technical drawing and i can't do it + i can't get the two point perspective right and it's just so difficult
i don't even have time to be stuck but i can't figure it out and TEARS
What I find useful is to break down the words into how many I need to write per hour. I can normally get around 10 hours of work done in a day, so that's a 1000 words. It's not that difficult tbh
I got a 5k essay to submit on Thurs, got a medical interview on wed in kings (Travel is gonna be fun). Had grad job interview last Monday, submitted a PhD application last Wednesday, had a presentation on Friday. So yeah, life is fun.
Stop thinking about how you will never get it done, if all you do is keep stressing about it, then you never will. Just get your head down and get on with it
This may be an unhelpful post also as the only advice I can offer is to just keep going with it in order to meet the deadlines. Take a break every so often so you don’t feel like you’re drowning in work and keep telling yourself you will get it finished.
With that part in mind, things look worse when you feel down and you feel like you just can not do it. Point blank. But it’s not so. You CAN do it, you got this far. And I’ve managed to pull through loads of times when I felt I couldn’t do something.
Only giving up will ensure you really do not get it done.
Cry, scream, by angry, get your frustration out first and it might be easier to focus.
Go Girl, you can do this....
