    okay!
    Hmm I have been procrastination all week...
    Apart from ICT what else do you do...?
    I am attempting a classic past paper that my teacher set for homework, AND so far I have done nothing...
    i do computing n maths n business i need to revise for those aswell i got a mock next week and NO REVISION OMG

    ok how shall we start,

    i done 2 minutes of my coursework yesterday because my dad was watching over me haha,

    hmm thats seems like a good method with som1 watching over u,

    i am a guy who likes to get things done perfectly and spend time on it, ive tried the "2 minute rule" and i cant even start on that,

    a good tip is to put stuff in bytesize chunks and that doesnt work either

    what shall we do!

    haha oh that's brilliant you should pin a picture of you dad on the wall in front of you, so that whenever you look up you see him! Umm or get someone to facetime/skype with you so that they can check you are doing work...
    ^^ Actually this one might not work, I have done this and said I was googling something when I was skyping my friend but I was actually on Facebook....hmm
    Oh whats the 2 minute rule? Work for 2 mins then break??
    I dont know, uhh maybe try setting goals, say I wont play flappy bird until I get this chapter done etc.
    (Thats what I have tried today- I wont check snapchat even though I have loads of notifications until I plan this essay...?)

    loooooool picture of dad on the wall will freak me out

    yeah thats the 2 minute rule i think,

    distractions such as flapy bird or tv i dont normally do, i have big plans and goals to do other stuff,

    i got the best idea, we should skype screen share and check on each other to see if we r doing work

    Oh okay, yeah I would get to distracted doing the 2 min rule...
    Good for you!
    What so you just share the screen of your computer?:confused:
    I am not sure that will be very helpful for me as everything I am doing is handwritten...?
