100 words: Tired

I’m tired. Physically and psychically.

It’s only the second week of the summer semester at the university and I’m already dead tired. I’ve got so much work to do, many essays to write and so much literature to read that I don’t know when I’ll do it all.

I’m psychically tired because I’m worried if I’ll manage to do everything that I’m supposed to do and I think about it all the time. I can’t stop worrying and consecutively I can’t fall asleep in the evening. And that’s why I’m physically tired.

I’m dead tired and need some time off.  


  1.'ll make it! I understand feeling's been like that at work for the last several weeks but just dig in and you'll get through it...and try to relax a little :-)

  2. Take it one essay, one assignment at a time. It is hard I know. But you do not have to do it all at once. Step by step, you will make this journey. And remember : even though you are not sleeping, your body is getting some benefit from just being horizonal, taking the load off your heart. May a path always be shown you, Roland

  3. Sometimes taking a little time off to enjoy yourself and relax is just what the doctor orders for over-tiredness, which sounds like is what you've been feeling.

    Rest, attack one thing at a time (wise words from Roland) and hope for the best.


  4. But not so tired as to be unable to write a perfect 100 word post! See, you're still thinking straight. But pay attention to what your body is telling you, and take good care of yourself. You need to stay strong, girl! Rest. Be well. :)

  5. take a break this weekend lady... :) I sowy you are so tired!

  6. Good post, but I am sorry you had the subject to write about. If you can't sleep take time outs to close your eyes and rest. It isn't as good as sleep but it helps.

  7. need to take a break....take a day off and would help...and don't worry, you'll pull through....*hugs*

  8. ...exhaustion carries with it sinister intent. It's enemy...a good night's rest. You need it, hon:) The worries, you'll get it done.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day:)


  9. Well done on creating something through the tiredness. I hope you feel rested soon. I remember being a student and how tiring it could be; trust me it does get better.

  10. @Chief - Thanks for believing in me, it's really nice of you!

    @Roland - Thanks for stopping by and commenting. And thank you so much for a good advice!

    @Shopgirl - I had a day off yesterday and slept until 10.30 today and I already feel much better. Thanks for your advice :)

    @Jayne - Awww, that's so sweet :) Thank you so much!

    @Doria - I'm not the only one who needs a break. You should also take a day or two off!

    @Barbara - I'm glad that you liked this post. That's exactly what I'm doing, thanks for advice :)

    @Caterpillar - Thanks! I took a day off yesterday and it was great :)

    @Elliot - Thanks for advice and believing in me!

    @Happy Frog and I - I'm glad you liked this post. And also thanks for letting me know that it gets better, that's exactly what I need to hear.

  11. I remember those days. It is important to look at one individual assignment/day at a time. Even now, I have the tendency to look at EVERYTHING I have to do and it stresses me crazy. But, if I just take it one task at a time, it's much more manageable. I think that might help with the mental exhaustion.

    Try to take little breaks for yourself--whether it's a movie or a nap.

    You will be fine--I have every faith in you! *Hugs*
