I have always found it very hard to stay focused on studying. However, recently this battle has somehow become even harder! Every night, I go to bed repeating the same mantra “I will do work tomorrow.” Then tomorrow comes and I do random pointless shit all day.
Schraw, Wadkins, and Olafson have proposed three criteria for a behavior to be classified as procrastination: it must be counterproductive, needless, and delaying.
These are some of the things I do when I procrastinate.
Facebook is the biggest pain in the ass. Sometimes when I think about the amount of time I’m on facebook, I start to think that this social networking thing is part of some big conspiracy to hypnotize people into being so dumb. You know, its like those baby shows where when your baby watches it, they just stare in to oblivion in the tv’s direction. Facebook is like my ‘baby tv’. You know how when you’re home all day and you’re bored and hungry so you open the fridge a million times but never take anything out to eat. Facebook has the same effect, you just go there all the time but you never do anything but look at what you’ve just looked at. HOW DUMB OF US? I get so mad at myself sometimes. SO SO MAD!
2. Angry Birds
When I start to play angry birds, all signs of work end there. Angry birds is thee most addictive game ever! ever! Those little green things just make me just wanna keep on killing them when they make that stupid little annoying noise! They guy who invented angry birds must be predddyyy happy with himself!
3. Painting my nails.
I paint my nails everyday because everyday I wash dishes and somehow I manage to get the nail polish off. When the nail polish looks untidy, I just HAVE HAVE TO fix it. Enough said.
I text all day on whatsapp. Sometimes, I don’t even realise it’s been 3 hours since I’ve been texting random shit to people. Eventually I just stop replying to everyone when I get bored.
5. Reading articles, blogs and the news.
Everyday, I have to read the news and new articles and new blogs. Then I spend alot of time just thinking about it and watching videos on stuff I just read. And eventually OH SHIT ITS 6PM ALREADY!
In conclusion, I have no self discipline.
