3 more weeks till finals week. any one else have a case of schools-almost-over and i'm sick-of-the-bullsh!t syndrome? symptoms include: procrastinating. feeling unmotivated. slacking. skipping more than usual. doing the bare minimum to do well (the over-achieving mentally stopped after 1st qtr). anyone is free to vent and/or share their finals-week stories

Ugh my motivation died before Xmas so that meant bearing O-Chem Lab II and Biochem all this past semester - it sucked! But just think you're soooo close to being done:D

Finals week here was the second week of May.

When did your semesters start?

we are on a qtr system. we start late and end late. although i'm not done with school until june 12th, fall qtr doesn't start until sept 24th.

does not benefit me, however. i'm taking summer qtr. =)

I was the same way, though even worse I think. My mind quit after Spring Break (March!). Luckily I was able to complete the semester with hardly any hitches and a good GPA.
