    I suffer from a documented syndrome, the "Student Syndrome..

    For example, I spend most of my time nervously avoiding what I have to do later. Obviously this includes academic work, but also things like washing up, shopping etc. When I was supposed to be starting an assignment on Vector Geometry yesterday for this morning, I spent half the time online fragging and shooting people in the head on Crysis 2.

    A lot of my time is nervously wasted, how can I stop this?

    Student Syndrome is just a fancy way of saying 'procrastinating'.

    Isn't this what pretty much every student does? Well ok, perhaps not as late as you've left it. Are you going to be able to complete it in time?

    Argh I hate procrastination. For some reason, I keep making tea whenever I hit a brick wall in revision. I wish I was cooler than that.

    Just remind yourself of narrowing time limits and then realise the best way is to just get on with it and try. Good luck.

    You're procrastinating sonny Jim. You're putting tasks of less value ABOVE tasks with high value.
    Only way to overcome is to lock yourself in your room and remove all ipods, tv, computer etc - and then try to do your work. Will be hard at first but you're not a quitter are you?

    Well for me, when an assigment is due I just think how I'd feel if on the night before it was due in I hadn't done it, the nervousness you start to feel n'all that. Thinking about how I'd feel really puts my ass into gear! I hate leaving stuff to do at the last min, I'm usually really organised when it comes to college work so I try and get any assigned work done asap.

    I think the shopping and washing up part comes down to laziness but about the HW bit just think how you'd feel if you left it really late to do, maybe that'll help you get it done asap!

    If you do get on and do one of these things (particularly things like cleaning your room) you'll realise it actually took like 5 minutes AND made you feel better about yourself, made your head clearer. I expect your head is foggy all the time and so you can't be bothered to do anything as it all seems like a right slog.

    This fog is latent worry. Think of worry as you would think of interest on a credit card. You really do want to pay it off in full every month, otherwise you're throwing money into a black hole.
