Hi UG!

I come with a huge problem - procrastination. I can never ever motivate myself to do homework. I end up doing it like a day before the deadline, and it's usually more than one piece simply rushed. The strange thing is, I can easily get myself to revise for an exam, which will not get in trouble for not doing, but with homework, I just get distracted by completely meaningless crap and usually have absolutely nothing better to do. I think it's partly to do with the fact that my expectations of the difficulty of year 10 and GCSEs were way higher - it is so much easier than I thought it would be...

Has anyone else been in my position? How did you overcome it? Please guys, help!

I had these bastards bragging about their amazing test scores. They were talking down to me, and I was below them. So I made sure I would be beat these bastards so I could patronise them, and be the best I could be. Oh, and doing work the night before cost me dear. My printer ink always seems to die at that time.

Yeah so, I used to do it and the solution is really simple! All you have to do is

I'm supposed to be creating a computer program for my C++ class, and i'm also supposed to be writing a research paper.

I didn't overcome it, and neither will you.

Have a nice day.

I'm procrastinating right now. I have a lot of coursework due in last week, but instead, I'm browsing The Pit.

One of these days, I'll have to like, disable the internet for a bit so I have no distractions to work :/

Lol procrastinate has always sounded like a such a dirty word to me x] *Giggles*

But yer we all do it. I really should start my French homework due tomorrow =/

Yeah....I kind of have about 5 different assignments due in the next two days, plus an mid term exam tommorow. Look where I am...

I'm worse than you.
I've done work 10 minutes before it was due. We had a project where we had to come up with our own country. Mine was called Land O' Lakes, and it's national symbols were butter and toast. I got 5 points off because I didn't color it.

I thought it was in year 9, I think it's well easy now. I think that's what has taken a lot of my motivation away xD.

*views blog instead of continuing with completely pointless English homework*

Damn, as I went to click it I had a huge foot spasm and fell off my chair. Maybe Godis trying to tell me something?


I think that he wants you to continue your English homework. Though he doesn't know how to work. I would have disconnected your internet instead. What a n00b.

I have 3 tests tomorrow, an Algebra 2 test, Spanish (really easy so I won't really need to study for it), and a Bio test, and I haven't studied for any of them yet, and I procrastinate on my hw almost all the time...
#31
10th grade..dude you dont even need to study for the kinda work you get..wait till you get to college...But I would suggest studying maybe an hour or so a day, depending on what your working on. just set aside a certain amount of time, turn some music on and hit the books...
#32
That's why i hate when teachers give long ass projects. Like, you have two months to do a 10 page essay on this, while providing pictures and a slideshow on that, etc. etc.

With homework, it's simple, wait til 10:00, spend 10 minutes doing ****ty work and viola, done! With projects it's like, wait til the last day, and by that point, I'm fcked.

Worst part is, I know I have a project coming up soon too. Going to be fun until the day it's due.
#33
I have a project due Wednesday worth 10% of my final mark that I havent started yet. I'm starting tomorrow because I have other stuff due tomorrow.

I have an english and history essay and maths homework. It's not getting done
#36
For some reason, I can only do things I really want to do.

I know I'll be all satisfied if I get the work out of the way; but I just can't get myself to do it
