So i'm a Chronic Procrastinator and I have a few questions about school. The semester ends friday and these are my grades as of so far.

Mathematics: F
P.E: A+
AP Spanish 4: C-
Health: C
Science: D
English: F



I brought this onto myself. I was wondering do you guys think I can bring my grades up to at least C's. My parents said when I get bad grades I wont be allowed to go places with my girlfriend. I wont have permission to go to shows anymore. They will take my internet and phone away.

So I need to know do you people at UG think I have hope. Give me some study tips because I hate doing these things at home. Its a very bad habit.

I feel the same exact way.

In fact, last year I almost failed..

But I've found my solution: stay up super late until you finally feel somewhat like doing what you're supposed to be doing, and alternate between guitar/work.

Btw, how the hell do you fail health? Thats one of the easiest classes..

Which involved us going into the woods, and him sticking his dick in my ass.
The last time we did it, his sister caught us.

When my students ask me what they can do to bring up their grades, I usually tell them to try doing their work.

What? If it's the end of term, what can you do? To stop procrastinating, just get whatever distracts you out of the way. For a start, when you need to study, put the guitar in its case and out of sight.

Maths: Find someone who can explain stuff well (teachers rarely can) and get everything straight, don't think to yourself "**** this", that's signing your own sentance. Do lots of tasks, doing tasks is the best way to learn yourself to remember the formulas and stuff.

Languages: Spend time sorting out grammatical rules and stuff on paper.

Anything that requires you to remember random stuff/facts: Take notes. Writing makes you remember more easily than just reading.

I wentpretty good at school and now am at university. I also havea job, and I know for sure that I'd rather be at uni aiming to make the big bucks rather than accruing small amounts of money now.

Tips:

1. Get off the net except for assessments. MSN, myspace, UG are all distractions and its not like a 10 min fade. You'll be on these things for hours

2. Study and reward. Do an hour or finish something and play guitar or something.

3. Talk to your teachers and ask them for extra help

4. Make study groups

5. Aim for your goal. 'There is no substitute for hard work'


Am at a stage inm y life where I look at my friends who make $500Aus a week and then I look at myself - I'm a full-time studnet who makes around $130. My friends aren't even looking at tertiary education opportunites.

To put it simply; do you want to work now and play later, or play now and work later. Cause you'll be in worse off state if you choose the latter.
Are you reelin' in the years?

I'd say get off UG and study instead.

In response to above, just walk into your classroom after class with your dick out. Instant A+


OH and I dont have to do that because I have A's in everything already...

best tip (to threadstarter): you should not be reading this tip because you should be studying right now

Okay, by Friday I'm assuming you mean this Friday, which is three days away. You can't go from an F to a C in three days.

Unless your teachers are extreme extra-credit gurus. But even then, it'd be pretty unfeasible.

Turn off teh intranetz.

Seriously; I've spent two days now being home from school due to sickness - at first I thought that it would be for the better since I now had ****loads of time to study the more challenging subjects of mine.

Now it's been two days and all I've been doing is sitting in front of the computer, reading about random **** on the internet. :/

But I have come to realize that the ONLY one who can make the difference about yourself is YOU - other people can show you the door, you have to open it.

I for example have just spent alf an hour now reading random Pit-threads: **** this ****, I need to start studying.

I don't know why that last post made me laugh so hard. But it did.
