Lack of Concentration - April 5th 2015, 04:28 PM

I have an assignment due in on Tuesday. I have already been given a two week extension for it. It is the first time in my life I have ever had to request for an extension, and the first time ever that I cannot complete my work. I have spent all weekend staring at this shitty piece of work but I just cant seem to do it! my concentration is just so bad right now, I don't know why I cant do this. I feel like such a failure; whats going to happen if I don't submit it? will they kick me off the course or not? I don't know what to do

''No pressure, no diamonds''

There may not always be a direct answer to a problem, but there is always a way to get through it.
Strength is the best quality of the human mind and body, and I believe everyone has it; whether they believe it or not. Look for that tiny glimmer of hope deep inside yourself and once you've found it let it blossom, glow and illuminate your life.

I'm always here if anyone wants to talk.

Depending on how much the paper is worth, I guess you could fail the course. I had papers in university worth 25% to 40% of my grade, so the struggle was real if I didn't do it. It helps me to feel pressure I guess, if I have 2 weeks to do someting I am like "meh... Later, I'd rather do this other thing right now since I have time". Then I'll start it around 4-5 days before. I feel like if I was writing a major research project for a masters, I'd probably care a little more about working well, well ahead.

What helps me is that I will set an alarm for 20 minutes, take a 5 minute break, set an alarm for 30 minutes, take a short break, and so on, so that I am forcing myself to do work for X amount of time, and then I get a break for a bit.

I don't think they'll kick you out for not doing one paper, unless you're at some kind of weirdo school with ridiculous standards.

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions
