  • Let me introduce to you my secret technique perfect for this situation - the Coffee boosted power nap.

    Here's how it works:

    1.) brew an extra strong espresso coffee.
    2.) Start an alarm for 20 minutes
    3.) drink the coffee quickly.
    4.) Sleep/nap immediately.
    4b.) If you can't sleep, at least lie down with your eyes closed somewhere dark, comfortable, and quiet.
    4c.) If that still doesn't work, meditate. Just keep your eyes closed and mind as empty as you can until the alarm goes off.

    That's it.

    The science behind it is pretty sound. 20 minutes is about the time it takes for both your body to digest the caffeine and your brain to get roughly 1 light sleep cycle. The caffeine will compensate for any of the normal drowsy/laggyness that occurs after a normal nap, and you'll wake up boosted with the energy of a decent sleep.

    You're welcome.

  • Try to get through as much as possible. Go to bed at a decent time and wake up early to work on it some more. If you have time between classes, work on it then too.

    When I was in college I used to stay at school after class to force myself to work on my homework. I found the school to have plenty of places where I could work uninterrupted.

    I would make sure I had some snacks, water, and music to keep me focussed.

    • bad wording I didn't mean "slack off" in a negative contex. But i meant the word procastonate. Fingers on the keys moving faster than my brain lol.

  • Listen to music and start writing until my hand gets sore and my wrist hurts.. And if time is short then I arrange the content and go on Facebook or make a what's app group and host a project giving number of pages and content to write and the money I am willing to give per page!.. 5-6 people come to assist and 100pages are done in 3-4 hrs maximum.. When you cannot finish task alone, get yourself a task force to get the job done..

  • You are looking at it like its this massive monster in front of you... and its gonna bury you beneath thousands and thousands of pages... its not... and here's why. You simply must take it a page at a time. If you try to multi task you will screw up and ta-ta to that grade you want. So slow down and take deep breaths. I would suggest questioning if this is the goal you want out of life.

  • I wish I had a good answer. Because my solution to this issue was: drop out. Granted I had other reasons beyond a mountain of homework. Still, before I dropped out I usually took things in small chunks, based on priority and when they were due. I also would try to do homework for later weeks so I could create some time for myself and do other things.

  • Prioritize. Get some sleep. Then do the most important or urgent stuff first. Or, if you want, do some quick and easy stuff to get it out of the day and reduce the pile by a few tons.

  • i do it anyway because

    -Not doing homework means no practice
    -No practice means i fail the test
    -Failing the test ruins chances of passing class
    -Not passing class ruins motivation
    -No motivation means I give up college and go work at some dead end job
    -Dead end job means no money
    -No money means no twin turbo supra
    -No supra means no happiness
    -No happiness means depression
    -Depression means a sad and lonely life

    So yeaaaa haha

  • Grab some fresh air, trying to relax. It's probably the combination of lack of sleep and being nervous that makes you feel so tired :o

    • Contrary to popular belief you don't need a college education to have a rewarding career. I did my dream job for my dream company without even a GED

  • start with the thing that will take the last amount of time. then go to the next. that way it feels as though you are actually getting done

  • When I was back in college, if it wasn't graded, I usually didn't care too much.

    But in a situation where every paper was graded, I'd pick the subject I knew I was gonna need those points the most and focused on that one.

    Good luck! ;)

  • you need to get up, take a break, and come back to it. go for a walk, eat something, take a shower, listen to music... whatever...

    sitting there for hours knowing how much is ahead of u can get tiring, so commit to taking breaks. also think about it like this. when u finish, you'll get to be on gag for as long as u want! :P

  • You know that some thought or saying that people say in school the, "I'm gonna drop out"? You have goals right? So, pretend you're on a reality show, work like your the president and have to save everyone lives, make yourself feel like a hero - you could put on some music for that - and do homework. Or, you could just forget about your goals.

    This is so weird, but I'm sending it anyway 'cause why not.

  • Sleep. Then email your professors and tell them you are sick and dedicate all day tomorrow to do homework. And since tomorrow is Friday that also gives you the weekend to work on homework. If you don't get sleep things will only be worse.
