    Less than 4 weeks and i didn't study at all today.
    i couldn't; took a day off completely.
    i feel so friggin' guilty :oops:

    oh well maybe i'll pick up steam tomorrow
    worst part is i still haven't broken that 30 :scared: , i guess it's burnout?

    haha it felt really good though, i gotta admit.
    i highly recommend it if you're starting to freak out. :thumbup: that is if you can handle the guilt :laugh:

    I've been taking too many breaks. Probably next one will be Saturday, but I hope not, I really need the studying. Took my first full-length tonight and didn't break 30 either. I need to sleep now, though, so I can wake up early and actually study. :p

    Wow. That sounds very much like Elliot from Scrubs that is your avatar.

    It's all good. You taking a day off isn't going to kill your score. In fact, it might be good for your score. I only studied 2 days out of a week for the MCAT...it worked fine.

    I've been having a lot of these days lately.
    Just no motivation to study.

    ^No motivation here either. I haven't done anything today and I woke up around 9. I still have to grill some food and then go to the gym (haven't worked out in a couple weeks now :( ). Then I'll hopefully hit the books. Maybe til 2 AM :)

    you have to take a break once in a while. this test is so freaking stressful that there is no human being that could study 10 hours straight even for a week. You need a break, so don't feel guilty over it.

    I'm busting my a$$ this week so I can take a lake trip this weekend...really looking forward to it.

    Not so much looking forward to studying on the dock while trying to drink beer though. :D

    I did nothing today either, but I already took the MCAT so take that with a grain of salt or two.

    I was supposed to write a mock exam saturday for Princeton and came down with the most terrible stomach virus of my life, and for the last 3 days I couldn't move because I strained my abdominal muscles... While being in a world of discomfort it is comforting in its own right to watch Price is Right, and useless sitcoms all day long on the couch rather than study for 8 hours a day lol.

    When this first all happened I was freeking out about being off track and losing ground close to the actual MCAT, but the break was nice and today I was able to make it to my class again and turn it up...

    Probably the only time in my life that a painful episode of sickness lightened me up lol, but I can definitely relate to the pleasure of a day off from all this.

    I'm contemplating about taking the day off. I'm usually consistent with a solid 4 hours a day... I think I might just go to the library after all, it's only about a month more of this crack!
