I am completely exhausted in every regard possible. Been working between 14 and 18 hours 7 days for about 3 months for a fucking stupid uni project. Amazingly, my phisical health has more or less kept up with that. The deadline is next friday and it looks like we're going to make it, but at this point I feel like an empty bag of flesh moving around. After the deadline I have 6 days to study for an extremely hard exam and I hate every single moment if this all. This morning I nearly cried just because I missed a bus that comes every 20 min. Please send endurance!!

    @PonySlaystation I will. In August. Until then it is impossible unfortunately.

    @jobylie I hope you can stay well until then...
    This situation could lead to burnout, which you already have symptoms for...
    I wish you the best!

    As someone who's struggling to get his shit back together after a massive, prolonged burnout, I say: avoid that shit like the devil.
    If you have to fail an exam or skip some activities, so be it. You will lose far more in the future in every way possible, including the quality and quantity of your work.

    Your mental and physical health is worth far more than that

    Edit: "I will take a break in xxx, when I'm done with this"
    If I had a penny for every time I said this and it didn't happen...

    Are you turning into zombie mate? No point over doing it mate. You need to chill and take time off. Even my computer gives up if I do not shut it down for 7 days or more

    @endor i already booked a dream vacation so I will actually have to do it.

    The problem is that I already signed up for the project and there is absolutely no way out of it, and I can't reduce it because it is basically one big thing, not 5 little tasks that I can make 3 or 4 of.
