There sometimes comes a point when you feel as though you’re academically force-feeding yourself, when your heart (and planner) says, “Get it done!” and your brain retorts, “No.”
You stare at a text and can’t imbibe a single word, no matter how hard you glare at the page. The Google Doc on your screen remains blank as you sit and wonder how you could possibly start that paper despite the fact you haven’t missed a single lecture. Your Canvas calendar is filled to the brim with pressing due dates, but, try as you might, you just can’t seem to muster the energy to tackle them.
You, dear reader, may be suffering from what I like to call acute academic overindulgence.
