    You do?

    To be honest, I have so much on at the moment that when I do get a break and can forget all about it I'm quite glad. Definitely don't feel guilty, if I did i'd only succeed in making myself majorly stressed out.

    Ummm, I feel guilty about not doing that much work, but I don't feel guilty when I do other things other than work if that makes sense. I will always continue playing football, watching tv... but only sometimes, say at the end of the day will I feel slightly guilty about not doing that much work. But if I don't have much work to do, I won't really feel guilty.

    The worst thing about being a student at least this year is the many 9 O'clock starts I have. PLus, I have a day which looks like it's a 9-5 day with no breaks. I'm hoping that I'm reading the timetable wrong.

    Think it kinda depends what year you're in - I wasn't really worried in the first 2 years, but come my 3rd year I realised it was my last chance and worked all hours god sent, especially on my dissertation!

    I think it depends what the situation is, I have not been clubbing for two weeks now, and I am hoping to go out next weekend, so I wouldn't feel guilty a tiny about doing that, its more when you're in anyway and isntead of doing work you're either on here, watching TV or playing a computer game.

    My other problem is I worked so hard in my second year I can't really do any more work than I did then, so it seems like I am getting behind but reality I might not be.

    I get that as well, I discovered last week that my best mate has me down in his mobile address book as the Mad Professor. :confused:

    That's true. It always feels as if I'm wasting my time. Every free hour I get, I think "I should do this essay now". Time and time again though, I put it off until the last minute.

    I'm second year - and I don't get a choice about the work as its all stuff that has to be handed in for marking. I have 22 hours a week on my timetable, and then at least 2 lab reports each week (thatt take at least 5 hours each, probably more), a piece of coursework every other week and coursetests about every 4 weeks. I do what I'd call the minimum, all my work is done and in on time, but I don't spend insane amounts of time on one bit of work like some people do.
