Default somebody force me to study! :(:(

I have a exam in 4 days.
It takes 6 weeks to prepare. The first 2 and half weeks I was doing ok.
Then suddenly 20 days back, BHAM! I stopped studying, started reading romance novels non-stop.
It hit me today that my exam is in 4 days. Lots of money invested in it. Future depends on it! :( :(
I was crying the whole evening. WTF have I been doing. Somebody hit me
What am I going to do? :(

((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))

The only thing you can do, is to try. Try to get the basics of the subject. Have you attended the lectures? Try reading through your notes and do some exam exercices if you have any. Is there anyone you can study with?

4 days probably isn't too late. It's earlier than when I usually start studying (when I was in school).

Tell yourself you can read romance novels anytime. You can do it after the exams. Tell yourself, right now I got to study first. Take a deep breath and tell yourself not to regret the past, just think about right now. (I've been there, spending all day panicking instead of studying). Good luck.

you know Cactus2 after reading that, I really felt that I should study. ONLY there's this bitchy voice in my head saying Nah, boring postpone.... :(
I started reading but ended up reading another novel :(
but I won't give up, I am trying Mitza but old habits do die hard
And changing habits, it's frustrating without a partner or maybe I'm just whining ........
thanks for the support

Does your prof/teacher have office hours? You could get help there, and you might see other students asking for help. Ask them if they'd like to study with you. If there's a course website or newsgroup you could possibly find people there.

Tell yourself, I'm going to go through a couple of boring days, but I'm going to reward myself with fun after the term's over. Hide your romance novels. Put them where you can't see them so you won't be tempted to pick it up.

WBL,
ummm as much as I'd like to say I'm studying for a job it's not that. I'm going to med school. It's not something I chose on my own (my parents forced me into it) but it's something I've grown to like. I'm honestly interested in it but something is stopping me from reading. I get scared and panicky and think what if my best is not enough. It's stupid since even my worst seems to be getting me through. It's like an excuse for me. As long as I can tell everyone I'm having fun and not slogging away, then I can say I've accomplished so much in very little time in the last minute.
basically i'm scared even my best won't be enough to be the best in the class. So I'm not studying, does that make sense?

13th Ghost,
ya I'm going to start, next time I log in I swear I'll have progressed to some extent. thanks for the boost.
Cactus2,
I'm going to med school, so profs expect us to slog on our own. Most students at med school are loners while studying because they already have set study patterns that have enabled to get good grades. But I do go and quiz them and they do quiz me but It's only after the studying part and close to the exams that all this quizzing takes place!
And all my romance novels are ebooks and on the comp. Since I have to do a significant part of my studying on the comp it kind of defeats the purpose of hiding them don't ya think...
But ya I'm promising myself I'll enjoy after the exam is over. But that I'll only enjoy the time later if I work hard now.
so trying ............
will let you know my progress after I study.
