Anyone else completely burned out?

Postby JayDubya » Fri Jul 21, 2017 12:15 pm

If I read over my lecture notes again or do another practice MBE question I feel like I might die.

Right there with you. I'm alternating between this feeling and wondering how there can possibly be so much law I forgot (going over critical pass decks). Like, I intellectually want to study, but...my brain keeps rebelling.

Been feeling that way since early this week. Yesterday afternoon was basically a complete studying failure.

SAME. I have been averaging maybe 3 hours of actual study time per day this week...

Definitely finding myself in the same boat. I have been mad at the material for existing this past week. Telling myself over and over again that I sure don't want to do this again...

I decided not to study today and take a break, but after feeling guilty for over an hour, I decided to hit the books. Of course, I can't retain a darn thing.

100%

Yesterday I was TOTALLY exhausted. I tried to study in the morning but by 2:30 I basically stopped cos I was getting nowhere and did close to nothing the rest of the day.

The only way to get though my lecture notes today is to have the audio at 2x so that's what I'm doing this morning to review CA Civ Pro. But this is going nowhere. fast.

I feel like I know what I know and there's very little room to get any NEW material in. There's still room to clarify and work out concepts but I feel like if I don't know something by now... I'm not going to know it, period. However, I am aware that this is not the right approach. There's still time to get some last minute details in- so I'm gonna stay in the game for as long as I can.

i've been only doing mbe questions and essay issue spotting/outlining. barely any review after that. i feel like throwing up when i read the explanations.i think it's time for me to just accept that i really can't do much more now.

Efficiency has gone down by 50 percent over the last two days.

Cool, it's not just me. Been going hard every day this week but today at 2PM my brain came to a complete stand still. Spent the next 3 hours getting through one subject's CMR...
