    So I've had a pretty eventful past week and it seems to be preventing me from knuckling down and getting stuff done. I've never really had feelings for someone before but I think I do right now(not too sure as this is all new to me) and I can't stop replaying the past week i've spent with this person in my head. I kinda just need it all to get the heck out of my mind so I can study!! has anyone ever experienced this before? how did/do you focus on your priorities? any help would really be appreciated because I have deadlines and at the rate I am currently going, I am not going to be meeting them! I am literally sat at my desk having written one paragraph in an hour which contained at least 8 interruptions from my thoughts. helpppp!!

    This is so me...the way I think of it is that if I put all of my focus into completing my work, then I will be able to do whatever I want afterwards without feeling guilty. Don't let that person mess up your future, besides they'd prefer you so much more if you do well in your education...(without sounding too traditional). You'll have better chances in your future endeavours.

    But realistically what I do is countdown the days I have left until my exams are over (133 so far) and then I can do whatever the **** I want. Failing would only elongate that process.

    This happens to me all the time, though my reason is just plain laziness that results in lots of procrastination and distractions. If something is on your mind when you're trying to study, listen to music. And I don't mean any old music, I mean music that really gets you pumped!

    For me personally this really works, because if I listen to slow music (e.g. The Weekend etc) then I will also be really slow with doing my work! If I listen to really upbeat music (so for example upbeat Kpop) then I kind of really get into what I'm doing. I know what I'm saying is a bit obvious but honestly it helps!! In your case though, avoid any music that reminds you of that person, because you obviously don't want to get distracted.

    Hope this helps!

    Ah I know how this feels! It is not very nice. I can't say that I am able to often do much about it, because my thoughts tend to just completely take over me.

    However, when I am able to escape them, it is usually by doing something I enjoy or really want to do - like doing a bit of maths, instead of something that I don't like as much. Music helps. In fact, it helps a lot. But nothing helps more than just targeting my thoughts directly, telling the person what I feel or whatever I need to escape them. Once I have actually tackled them, I find that I am able to do a lot more work and just feel happier.
