I have an assignment due at 10am tomorrow and am just so over it I cannot bring myself to get back to it!

Haven't even nearly finished and it just will not flow for me.  The bloody thing sounds so disjointed.  

For crying out loud - get going!  And never do this to yourself again.

I know the feeling I have 1200 worlds out of 3000 done and due Tuesday.

It's good to know I am not alone (although I wish you guys weren't in the same boat!).

I hate finishing off assignments, I always think I am nearly done and am still there hours later.  I think there will be lots of caffeine for me tonight  biggrin.gif

Ugh, I'm the same sad.gif Except replace 'assignment' with 'two exams'.

Good luck everyone!

I have learning journals to correct before student led conferences this week and soooo unmotivated. At least I stuck the last of the labels in last night.

Good luck with your assignments.

Another here who is so far behind it's not funny.

Good luck everyone!

Me, too with some draft work to get to a supervisor.  Worked all day and it wouldn't fall into place.  Burning the midnight oil here.

Well I've done some of it.  Given myself a limit of 11.30am then early start in the morning to finish off.

Good luck to all those with assignments and exams coming up.  It actually made me feel more motivated to know others work like me!

Same problem here sad.gif 900 words out of 1500. Which isn't too bad but the essay just sounds terrible. I have another week before I have to hand it in. I feel like saying "It's like this because it's obvious and I said so. Duh." Tounge1.gif

Good luck everyone.

I'm in the same boat - essay due tomorrow night, and I only have 400 out of 2000 done. At least I'm home tomorrow to work on it, but I'm just so over it. Plus, I'm sure I'm not doing it right! I hate it. In addition, I'm  16 weeks, and exhausted. I'm going to bed - what I get handed in gets handed in. Enough.

I'll join you. I have a test on Tuesday and limited time to study for it. But instead of studying, I've been stuffing about all night. And eating chocolate. Yum.

I have a week to write 6000 words on a subject that bores me to death. Just finding articles on the subject had me comatose. I've also got a lot of other stuff due - which is all much more fun and interesting. Oh dear. laugh.gif

I'm trying to do butterless popcorn, and grapes as a way of remaining awake. And not succeeding. Chocolate tastes better. blush.gif

I have an assessment due Tuesday that I am yet to start, and spending tomorrow babysitting.

#15 Snagglepussed

Posted 22 April 2012 - 11:08 PM

I have three assignments in the next month (8500 words in total) and I have only just started to LOOK at them today - and that entails just trawling Scholar for articles to use - one I have no idea what they are even asking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kicking myself that I left it until now to get  a start!


#16 Jess1

Posted 23 April 2012 - 12:21 AM

So much for the 11.30pm limit.  I'm still going because I just found out my 2 articles I had to cite were from the same journal!  They had to be from 2 different ones!

Kicking myself - now I have to find another article and somehow work that into my assignment.

Why oh why didn't I start this earlier!  Maybe we need a support thread to get us all kick started  wink.gif

This thread has made me smile.
I have an assignment due tomorrow (now today) at 10am.
I spent the day watching The Vampire Diaries and making choko pickles (which I then burned).
I've had a great day... I'll just be paying for it by staying up all night!

Well I didn't get any more of mine done today so my lovely xp will be watching the toddler tomorrow while I try and finish. Just remembered I have a Midsemester exam next week and I'm three weeks behind in lectures too.

Damn morning sickness and early pregnancy fatigue!

I always leave assignments to the last minute too. I think I work better under pressure. I usually go without sleep until I am done, then I go to work the next day...

#24 Jess1

Posted 24 April 2012 - 03:06 PM

Some of you guys are hardcore!  I wish I could just get assignments done quickly but I am such a procrastinator and only have very brief flashes of concentration, hence why it takes me so long to get done.

Anyway I got the b*st*rd in - got to bed about 1.30am then up again at 5am to finish off.  

I'm going to do a bit of a list of stuff I have to get done so hopefully it might motivate me a bit;

Accounting
1. Listen to lecture from last week and take notes.  Remind myself not to be lazy and miss lectures;
2. Do some questions from the tutorial this week to practice statistics;
3. Keep trying to contact group about second part of assignment due in 3 weeks.  Quietly have a heart attack if they have dropped the course;
4. Prep flash cards to study for final exam.

International business
1. Prep flash cards to study for final exam;
2. Start next assignment due in 4 weeks;
3. Keep attending extra tutorial class.

Superannuation
1. Go over lecture notes from one I missed (the one he didn't tape of course!);
2. Talk to person I am doing next assignment with and divide task;
3. Prep flash cards to study for final exam.

I usually end up having to cut words (maybe I dribble wink.gif) so last week I had to cut 2500 words from a 3000 word critique lol.

I do usually work better with a close-ish deadline approaching and always telling myself I'll never do it again... hmmm.
But this time,

I can't do that.  

I won't do that.  

Sing it with me!
