state ur targets for the day ....

i need to do 1000 words to reach my target for today then if i dont do it i will be embarrassed and will have to admit it.

I know it seems a bit of a paltry amount compared to some of u, but i so struggle with getting critical analysis into the damn essay.

(FECK got to go shopping at some point today- can see excessive use of cursing thread coming up!)

I need to decide what on Earth I'm going to do tomorrow.... Decision, decisions, decisions....

ive got to do a 2.500 health policy essay it has to be finished TODAY i was doing it all day yesterday and i only done 200 words

IF it helps Nickola, something that my supervisor suggested was just to write all what you think without worrying about style, spelling, references etc. Then go back to it and order the content, correct the style, add the references and finally check the spelling. It made such a difference in my case. HTH

nikcola Sun 24-Apr-05 12:29:23

if no one talks to me i will have to study!!!!!

Chandra Sun 24-Apr-05 12:30:57

Nickola, if you can't think, go out enjoy the day and forget about the essay. It's worse to force yourself to study whn you are not in the mood, it will only get you more frustrated and you are not going to be able to do much anyway. Start with a frsh mind and take one step at the time. Don't count the words, or think in the deadline, it only stresses you more and can distract you a lot.

Chandra Sun 24-Apr-05 12:34:24

Me? well... I have to decide what on Earth I'm going to do with my life, whether to continue studying here to keep my mind busy or to storm out of the door with a toddler and walk all the way back to my country.

So I guess the answer to your question is.... Not too bad... yet

nikcola Sun 24-Apr-05 12:34:46

i was thinking of asking dd's nursery if they would have her for the whole week and let her sleep there bad bad mummy

nikcola Sun 24-Apr-05 12:35:34

Chandra Sun 24-Apr-05 12:38:04

It's just on the other side of the Atlantic.... I must have said swim instead of walk...

Anyways, nothing new, I have always wanted to go back is just that I was informed by DH last week that we are going to stay here for some extra years more than what I had anticipated... sigh*

Chandra Sun 24-Apr-05 12:52:41
