sadly i've turned to eating...this plus my workout time being cutback in lieu of apps has made me not feel so sexy. this process is taxing on all fronts.

I honestly do not even want to apply to apply to bschool this cycle anymore. I feel like my essays would be much better next year. I just decided to apply to bschool after doing well on my gmat. Not really thinking things out. I do not even really like the programs I am applying to anymore.

I hear you. Working on the Chicago Powerpoint, for example, has made me want to trash the entire application altogether. I feel discouraged about all my essays. Haven't been to the gym in weeks. I'm trying to chalk it all up to end-of-round burn-out, though. Just a little longer, y'all! We can do this!

DITTO!! I dont want to read my essays anymore and I still need to finish some :S :S :S.

MY MOTIVATION IS THAT THIS REALLY IS THE LAST STEP! After the gmat studying, the research, the preparation, etc etc etc... this is the last step!!!!

Listen to an upbeat song! Dance a little! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iBqhMfyoPU&feature=fvst

... and continue working. Remember there are probably A LOT of people exactly like us right now.

GOOD LUCK! GO GO GO!

Hilarious. The PPT was actually what made me post this but after getting 90% done, I think that they look great and I am encouraged to go make my essays better because of it. Anyways, I think that I was in a slump as I am sure many of you have been/are in. I am on a roll now so no moping for the time being.

Don't worry though, I will be back on here when the red bull wears off.

Forgot the topic for a second.

My Tip for frustration is:

BOXING!

I went and punched my friends bag and it really helped. I am exhausted now but at least I won't demolish my macbook or submit my application prematurely out of want to rid myself of the burdens of completion.

Ha ha! couldn't think of getting up from the table while working on my essays let alone climbing on the bed!

My suggestion - Pump iron like crazy and then have a swedish massage.

Good for you, and good luck!

My PPT looks like a rabid chihuahua ate my mom's scrapbook of all my travels and accomplishments... and then vomited it onto a pastel-colored middle-school cafeteria tray. If a toddler scribbled on it in crayon it would probably look better.

Sigh.

That description was hilarious. I am pretty sure that I know exactly what it looks like. I'm sure you will edit a few things and it will go from crayola to art deco in no time. There always is a fine line between crazy and great.

Not particularly creative but I have found that drinking a couple glasses of red wine helps immensely 8-)

Although it renders me sleepy and useless for essay-writing so it's not recommended for a night when you need to buckle down.
