School is killing me
    #3461415 - 12/07/04 09:26 PM (12 years, 2 days ago)

I just puked up some bile. The result of staying up for 3 days on dexedrine over the weekend in order to finish two term papers due Monday. And the worst part is I've got another term paper due in two days which I haven't even started on. I'm probably gonna have to stay up for the next two nights to finish it. I don't know if I can make it. When I woke up on Monday, my sheets smelled of sweat--the kind of sweat you get when you have a fever. It's the kind that lets you know you're body's been poisoned. I feel like I'm falling apart inside. On the one hand, I don't want to fail this class, but on the other hand, I don't want to die.

Yeah ive been there. Dude, if I could do it, then you can. It gets really hard towards the end of the semester, especially if you have just the right combination of classes that make it a total bitch like I always had. This is a test man, an opportunity for you to show people, more importantly yourself, what you are really capable of. Dont let it go to waste.

Can I ask what your major is and what year you are in? Im just interested.

The semester's almost over. I am dealing with the same kind of school shit so that's all the comfort I can give. I just keep telling myself, "it's almost over, it's almost over..."

it shouldn't take you too long to crank out a paper. I had to write so many papers for my psych classes that I got used to pumping them out really quick. Towards the end I often didn't even start on a paper until a few hours until it was due, and I'd still make an A. You just need to get that format down to the point where you can just churn it out without thinking.

writing papers for 6000 level classes is another story though.

Why are you doing that to yourself? Get on a healthy schedule from now on so you don't cram so bad.

at my peak, I was able to bust out 10 - 15 page papers out in less than 12 hours. it's all about developing a sense of format like doc j pointed out.

Friendly tip:
There are two types of Ginseng that you should try to obtain to not only help you with tolerate high levels of stress but also help you maintain/regain your strength:
Panax Ginseng Powder
Eleuthero Root Powder

They can be purchased (4oz/$6) at www.mountainroseherbs.com and the quality is excellent. Shipping time is also extremely fast.

You need to sleep, brother. Get alteast 6-7hrs each night. Work out when you wake up or go for a jog or a fast walk. Chill out with the music and TV - it only jitters the nerves.
Stop with the soda. Stop with the alcohol. If you must have a rush try expresso or coffee but only in moderation.
Drink plenty of water and enjoy it. Let your body (which is made up of water in a large way) replenish and rejuvinate.

Focus on one day at a time. (Tomorrow is enough trouble to deal with it tomorrow).

Keep a window open in you pad for extra oxygen/fresh air.

Lay off the smoke.

Lay off the stuff.

If you must venture try a Salvia Divinorum tea two hours before bedtime.

Good luck and don't get anything below a B- or your grounded, buddy.  :thumbup:

do school full time. 9 to 5, you're doing school. the rest of your time is your time. you don't do school work in that other time. even with exams coming up. i don't know about you, but most people can handle an average college course load in 40 hours a week or less.

of course... that advice is easier to give than follow. someday i'll get myself doing schoolwork 9-5. for now.... it's past midnight, and there are still two exams and a paper due tomorrow that need to be taken care of before i sleep.  :laugh:

i fortunately have a low tolerance to caffeine and a cup of coffee gives me all the speed i need when i need to get wired.

get your sleep though. seriously... cramming doesn't work and you need your sleep. looking over notes for a half hour a day every days for the 6 days before an exam is a million times better than staying up and cramming.

again.... if i could only follow my own advise.

i feel ya man.

I don't cram for exams. It's essays and term papers that kill me. Anyway, I feel much better now, but I'm really having trouble getting started.

A while back. I've just been so busy with other schoolwork that it's hard for me to get around to them until it's close to the end of the semester. Ya, I know I'm a horrible procrastinator, but what's done is done. I think I'll be ok, tho. I'm feeling better, and I've got enough sources to get this paper done on time. I'm definitely going to breathe a big sigh of relief when this semester's over.

I'm in the same boat as you, silversoul. I feel school will be the death of me. I have mid-term papers due, exams I have to cram for, and seemingly a million other things. The Amphs only go so for to help me. Anyways, its almost over....

On the one hand, I don't want to fail this class, but on the other hand, I don't want to die.
