Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Anyone else? I have completely lost momentum and motivation. I kno my essays are NOT good but i'm losing the motivation to keep going.
Take a day or so off, re-connect with friends and family, and give your mind a break. Remember, it's not a sprint but a marathon. I hate to break it to you but overwhelmed is what you'll feel once you get to b-school as well. Work out, read a book, play an instrument... whatever it takes to keep you grounded.
