Note: I have gotten about 11 hours sleep total at this point.

I just sat in frount of my printer, as it was making noises, wondering why my paper was taking so long to print. I realize that I haven't even set anything to print out. I forget that there is a button I have to hit to make it print, I figure this out, thankfully more quickly. I then realize that my laptop is not even connected to my printer. blush

I really wish I could just forgo my two hour class tonight. I hate my teacher with a passion and just want to sleep, but I set a goal to attend every class unless I was terribly sick, I couldn't just feel bad. Plus, since this paper was so darn hard to print out, I should turn it it!

Getting the motivation to sit through another class, especially one with an instructor that you dislike, is a tough one. I am five weeks from having my degree and with each vanishing week my motivation goes too. I just want to be done!!! (I like my instructor alot)

Hang in there, go, get it done, and you will not have to feel the guilt of breaking your goal.

good luck!! :)

Hang in there Orlo!!

When you finish your class tonight, I request you come home get in your pj's and just relax. :-) I agree with Jokat with sticking through it. Maybe eat/drink a little extra protein b/4 class.

I understand the night class and instructor problem well this quarter.

For one thing, I signed up for two evening classes per week thinking it would be easier than attending 8 hour long weekend classes. Both are equally tiring.

In our research class we discussed the Dewey Decimal and the Library of Congress systems for 1 1'2 hours. I love this instructor when she talks about writing but library systems are boring, especially for grad stuents.

Motivating yourself to get out and go to class is harder when you have fibro to contend with. It is late and your body is stiffening up. You feel tired from being up all day long.

However, you are amazing for even attending college. In addition, you know about the fibro. I hate to think of the people who have no idea why they are exhausted and feel pain.

Take care, hang in there, don't give up the ship and hang tough.
