    Oh welcome to the club. Honestly until now NOTHING has worked for me. Absolutely NOTHING ever! Even if I do sit down with my studying stuff and everything and don't go on TSR or anything even WHILE I'm reading the book my mind wanders off by itself and it just procrastinates! I really don't know what to do!

    I managed to finish my literature review (also for tomorrow) a few hours ago but digital painting requires more thinking and I don't want to

    Gotta do a bunch of game design concept art lol.

    I need to work out how little I can get away with lol.

    The module is split into two briefs. Already got 72/100 on the first one but it's worth 27% of the whole module.

    This one I have to do tonight is worth 73%.

    I need to get 40/100 overall to pass.

    Not entirely sure if this is right it's been ages since I did maths. 27/100 x 72 = 19.44.

    Which means I have to get 21/100 in this brief tonight. So hopefully I can get away with handing in some proper crap work lmao.

    If anyone can confirm my maths is right that'd be cool ty.

    Work out all the things that you procrastinate with and limit them.

    Haven't done maths since A'level, but I think you need 29?

    73% of 29 = 21.17

    19.44 + 21.17 = 40.61

    Good luck!

    Try taking all social media apps off your PC and only using your phone for TSR, FB etc. but keep things on there that will help you concentrate e.g. Spotify
