Help, I seem to have hit a brick wall on my OU course :-(
I'm finding the content interesting still, but I seem to have completely forgotten how to start, let alone complete an essay. In this case it's one evaluating claims and we are bombarded with warnings about what we must include. I keep procrastinating but I hope once I make a start (tonight) things will start to fall into place.
For the first time this week I felt as though this is all too much hard work and wanted to give it up. That must be a sign that I'm feeling generally down and not 100% because I'm not a quitter. I suppose there have been times things have 'faded away' out of my interest boundaries, but that's not quite the same. And it's not as though I'm not getting the marks, so it's just my own lack of ... something!!
I'm really hoping things bounce back a bit soon, otherwise I'll start getting behind with the work, and that will just perpetuate the negative feelings.
Right, on with starting an essay plan about memory being a constructive and dynamic system. Hmm, mine is isn't feeling very dynamic at the moment!!
