    In lehmans terms, im fucked.

    Next tuesday is my uni courseword hand-in day. Between then and now i have to write one 2000 word essay and one 3500 word discourse analysis (fucking long/hard takes forever) of obviously a very good standard. Im aware that this is noones fault but my own, but I still cant make myself do it. If I dont I will be chucked out. Got a 1st last year (winging it through exams) so I know I can handle the academic side of it, but i cant make it happen. This seems to be a reocurring trend in everything i do.

    Please tell me someone has some handy motivational tips. Some anti-procrastination tips. Some get better at life tips.

    I only i had a bigger enemy than my apathy

    go sit in your uni library mate, load up your mp3 with tunes and do it there.
    only way i get work done. i feel bad going on forums facebook etc in libraries so i tend to get a lot done. find loads of hard working weirdos to sit near to then youl feel guilty if you sit around doing nada.

    turn off your music, and stay up late into the night (im talking like 6am) and just write and write and write. then the next day, go back over what you wrote, youll find some of it wont make sense, but youll know the point your tired brain was trying to put across at 5.30am so you can correct it and make sense of it then

    thats how i wrote my dissertation. and i almost got a 1st for that

    You should be able to pull this shit off. Write the conclusion first, then write your way to that.

    I fininshed a 6000 word thing on the evolution from dinosaurs to birds on a single night while I finished the entire first Killzone game on a ripped disc which kept getting stuck and took forever to load. You'll be fine, mate!

    Asks for help on DnBForum.com...

    Everyone says whatever you're struggling with is easy piecy and they did twice as many words in half the time on a topic three times as difficult to grasp while doing handstands on Beoyence's pregnant tummy and the Jay C wrote a song about it in about half that time again and snorting ground up caffiene pills and suddenly the whole flux capacitor.
