HSC is in less than a month and I'm so unprepared but its not like I'm even studying ahhhhh!!!!!!
I was doing so well with my studies until school got shut down.
Even with like online trials, I barely studied (luckily this didn't impact my rank/marks too much).

And now with HSC I haven't been doing anything at all.
How do I overcome this and just STUDY??????????

At this point, I'm so sick of this shitty year and I just want it to be over.

Does anyone else feel like this ahahhaha?

don't worry your not the only one haha. This is common, many of my mates even in selective schools feel this way. It can be draining when your stuck in your room all day.

Get some fresh air (NSW is kinda opening tommorow yay). I think the reopening of schools will help. Just remind yourself why you started. This is the final strech. You can chill all you want anyways in the 3 month holiday (probs 2 month now lol). Just grind.

My experience has definitely been similar. The last 2 months were one of the worst and most unproductive of my life. Here are some tips I've found that are slowly bringing my productivity back to pre-lockdown levels:

1) Routine, routine, routine! - Start small. E.g. study for 20 minutes at 8am --> then slowly build up. It becomes a habit which means no matter your motivation you can still study.

2) Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day - for me staying up 20 minutes passed my bedtime was enough to ruin any hope of studying the following day.

3) Stop spending hours on things that you know make you feel terrible - I spent hours scrolling on Facebook. Even when I began hating every moment of it, I couldn't rip my face away. It stopped feeling like a break and just started causing anxiety.

thank you! this is super helpful!

my sleep schedule is so fucked up lately like even tho i go to sleep relatively early (around 10 or so), I can't manage to wake up earlier than 10 the next day. it's so weird.

They wanna see me down and out
But I'm on a paper route
She want me to stay inside the house
But the trap needs me now
Talk on my name for clout
I'll guarantee you'll see clouds
Them days we were stuck in a drought
Now we never go without
They wanna see me down and out
But I'm on a paper route
She want me to stay inside the house
But the trap needs me now
Talk on my name for clout
I'll guarantee you'll see clouds
Them days we were stuck in a drought
Now we never go without
My girl thinks I'm out here cheating
The fiends need me to keep eating
I couldn't care less about sleeping
Three AM And this still beeping
I crack it open, it's reeking
Quick tester and they can't stop speaking
Sports Mode Plus and I can't stop speeding
I remember them days when council was needed
While the opps tryna get even
We pop bottles in the evening
Designer print when we're sleepin
She ride like a Stallion, no Megan
I got the Tommy and I shoot like Egan
Them bad girls right there, they're decent
When a girl sees me I know shes geezin'
I got two fangs you see them freezin'
I got two thangs they ready for a threesome
They don't wanna see me at war
They don't wanna see me at all
They want me cuffed by the law
I still got trust in the Lord
And I'm still up in the store
I still pop smoke at Dior
And I'm still up in the store

Talk on my name for clout
I'll guarantee you'll see clouds
Them days we were stuck in a drought
Now we never go without
See, I couldn't care less if they like me
I do one show and it sets me up nicely
You can't buy our trust, that's pricey
So we don't leave any mess to tidy
My canines look real icy, my Merc' is looking real shiny
Just got a blue tick, but that don't mean shit
I was cert in my Air Max 90's
Try me, they already know where to find me
Mum still praying for me nightly
How many rivers did she have to cry me?
I made six figures, no signing
Now these labels wanna try sign me
I got opps that wanna find me
But I got real drillers beside me (brrt, pop, pop, pop)
They don't wanna see me at war
They don't wanna see me at all
They want me cuffed by the law
I still got trust in the Lord
And I'm still up in the store

Good new is, you still have time. Bad news is, you don't have a lot of it. The above advice are all really good. I'm going to offer some advice specifically to help you just study.
  • 5 second rule. You count yourself down from 5, and once it gets to 1 you start studying.
  • Change the environment. You need to have a new space for studying, preferably not your bed room.
  • Negotiate with yourself. Sounds whack, but negotiate with that voice that just 'ceebs.' What will you reward the 'other you' for studying?
You got this. You've pulled through before, and you'll pull through now.

I'm trying to build up from around 1-and-a-half-hours a day to 6 hours (AKA 2 Past Papers) a day.

Eco studying has been virtually non existent for me. As it's the subject I've always needed the least amount of practice for it's fallen by the wayside in terms of my priorities.

However, I'm planning to start doing eco past papers with a focus on the extended responses (as, we all know, stats and trends can kick you in the butt sometimes).
