Hi, it's pooky here. I disappeared from this discussion group for almost a year. My old problem is still here: late with my homework all the time. But now, I decide to give myself a chance and give it a try. I discover that my parents and my friends all believe in me. This is my last year in college and I really want to do something for myself. But I feel stress and nervousness, sometimes I can hardly concentrate. I really need your support to keep my engine on.

Best wishes to all of you, pooky

ROFLMAO. Great timing there. I am writing a 10 page paper right now that is due in 4 hours. I decided to take a break and see what was going on in the world. I wish I could offer some advice on this matter, but you can see that I am just as lost as you are. 8^P

This is no time for weakness, not on your planner for the day. Always remember the stregnth comes from with in, every one always sees the power we have with in our selves so clearly, I still wonder why its so hard for us to see it within. Just keep one foot in front of the other, and if ya stumble, shake it off, get up and charge foreward. You can do any thing you decide to do.

thanks all of you, especially janes who reminded me to read about the procrastination thread. it's useful. it's nice to feel that you're not alone in the world, you're not the worst person in the world.

i've got an essay, which is already 2 weeks late, to hand in today. i did part of it yesterday afternoon. but in the night, i fell asleep. when i woke up, it was already 3:30 am. i felt so miserable that i might not be able to hand in today. i trembled in my blanket, not knowing what to do. i told myself to stop thinking, but bizarre ideas like imagining the response of the lecturer when i hand in my work/ it may took me extra time to read secondary materials/ how miserable i am/ why am i late repeatedly/ any skills to avoid it/ how to get positive thinking at this very moment...etc. just came through my head. i could hardly breathe. i hided myself in the blanket and then slept and woke up and slept and woke up, till my mom woke me up and said "when are you going to school today?"

it was already 8 in the morning. i was certain it was impossible for me to finish it before 5pm today. but i didn't feel scared anymore at that moment. it was strange. is it because "i miss the deadline" means "i don't have a deadline today/ i postpone the deadline to tomorrow", so that i feel less stress today? i don't know.

now, it's noon. i'm doing my homework at home. i skip all my lessos today. my mom seems disappointed and furious as she's not speaking to me. she thinks i haven't finished my work because i sleep too much ( which is true) i understand why she's mad because i never told her my late habit.

now, i've decided "just do it". i avoid myself lookin' at the clock, so that i won't give myself excuses to avoid doing my work.

very unhappy, but still striving on...

any advice, pls??

Yuup that's right.

The next time you are having trouble sleeping just get up and organize stuff for when you arise.

TELL your mum about your problem and how you are trying to handle it...

enlist her support....

(If my kids got it written I would type it for them)

Finding the pprob. and facing it is the first step..now figure out how to handle it.

Keep it up!!

You are doing fine. When you could do your work so efficiently in six hours, why not start on time! Check out what's your energetic time and use that time!
What Janes suggests sounds good too.
Don't give up!

thanks so much for the enormous support from all of you.

now my parents know a bit of my problem, and from time to time, encourage me to work harder. that's great 'coz i am the kind of person who needs others to push.

i finished a short report, 3 pages of translation these two days. not bad. but my schedule is tight, i need to be more productive.

i'm still weak. when it's time for my homework, i go to sleep. and then get up with guilt. really tired of this vicious circle. any suggestion?

striving onwards

I hate to encourage stimulant abuse, but what the heck, I think the coffee industry has thrived on students!!
Green and Black tea are supposed to be great antioxidents, and have the same amount of cafinene. the healthier side of this is some good old fashioned exercise. Yoga, running, deep breathing, gets the oxygen flowing into the brain, and while your running you can formulate the papers you need to write.
