YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!! I know this semester sucks…I feel the SAME way! None of my classes motivated me to actually want to do the work..or even show up! The end is near, and you’re just feeling the major effects of senioritis, but you’ve GOT to push through! We all believe in you, just do the best you can!!!


If you need anymore encouragement, or to swap school war stories, just pm me!

Good luck tomorrow!! : )

Hang in there.  I know how you feel to be unmotivated.  I had a terrible case of senior-itis my last, oh, 3 years of my first degree.


Are your parents paying?  If they are not then maybe it’s time to make your own executive decision.  Why should you be saddled with a ton of debt for someone else’s dream for you? 


If you feel like you can’t talk to your parents and can’t transfer schools then at least look into counceling services on campus.  I can’t tell you how many times they helped me out.  They are most likely already built into your tuition cost, so utilize them. 


ETA:  I just re-read your post and it seems this is your last semester.  Hang in there.  I’m sure everything will be okay.  However, my advice stands to anyone who might find themselves in your position.

Oh my gosh, I know exactly how you feel! that is just how I felt my last three semesters. It was the worst feeling and until I had that diploma in my hand I couldn’t believe it was really over. it took me a really long time to forget that feeling.

However, there is a big difference in having a degree (in anything really) and not finishing. Even if it’s just one class. Tell yourself you are done with school, just gotta get through this (if you are going through hell, keep going!!)

Honestly, when you are done, you not believe the cloud that lifts from your shoulders, the weightless freedom of being finished. feels SO good! you can get there!!

I feel like that often (3 semesters off) but then I’m tough with myself. Yes, I would rather read wedding stuff, but I would MUCH MUCH rather not work at a grocery store the rest of my life. School sucks, but you can tough it out! Good luck with getting your C-. 🙂

I’m beyond stressed out this week because I’ve procrastinated so much this semester and really lacked any interest in the classes I was taking. It’d be by the grace of god if I got a C in either class.

WE CAN DO THIS!! We just need to put forth all effort we can until then.

I had this same thought-process: intensely rigorous school, ZERO motivation even though I was super smart. lots of bad grades and I didn’t even care, I just wanted to go home and forget all about school.

I went to the doctor– turns out I had depression and anxiety issues. I went on anti-depressants and got into grad school and have gotten 4.0s since.  I don’t want to press medication or illness on you, but it’s certainly worth consideration. 


Also, my graduate school is less rigorous than my undergrad. While I appreciate the undergrad years for teaching me some important theory and really exercising my procrastination muscles, I’m so happy to be out of there and somewhere where I can be a big fish in a small pond again! I can crank out papers like nobody’s business.

I just wish I could find it in myself to be the same person that got into this school in the first place, before it stomped all over me and drained me to the point that if I don’t pass this class (the last one I need to graduate) I don’t know if I could even bring myself to come back.

This is absolutely the STORY OF MY LIFE right now. I hate hate hate that I’m being judged based on these courses that I’m only completing to graduate, and the thought of another semester terrifies me. If I don’t get the C- grades I need to graduate in May 2012 as planned, I’ve already told my parents and Fiance I won’t be coming back. JUST. CAN’T. DO. IT. ANYMORE.

But as

@bookworm88 mentioned, I also have anxiety issues, and seemingly depression over grades, school, and etc. The sooner I am out of here the better!
