    People, especially students, like to say they don't have enough time to do things like clean, exercise, make meals, study, see friends, shop, etc. These people are not using their time effectively. Wake up an hour early to exercise or clean, do things at set times, be more organised, don't take breaks for hours and hours watching Netflix or sitting on Facebook.

    Today I woke up at 6, made breakfast, did an hour of cardio, showered, cleaned my room, vacuumed the house, took the bins out and packed by bag for tomorrow, all before 8. Then I did laundry, ironing and made lunch for tomorrow. I did a couple of hours of studying, went out to do food shopping, put it all away and that came to 2pm. I've had a friend over since then, and now I'm on an exercise bike while writing this. You do have time, stop moaning you don't.

    Am so glad you've managed to use your experience to generalise for millions of students, clearly nothing fallacious going on here.

    What is everyone else doing then, that they don't have time to do everything they moan about?

      This is sooo true, I agree.

      The only problem is that it is easier said than done

      I think I've heard about a billion of these "motivational" stories and they don't do anything you're basically a stranger through the internet just talking at me. If these sorts of things worked everyone would be meeting deadlines by now.

      Most students have part-time jobs. Some have caring responsiblities. Although I do partly agree with you, if some people organised their time better and prioritised effectively, they could achieve so much.

      Then they should wake up early, or do stuff after work. Part-time means they're not working 13 hour shifts, 7 days a week. Realistically they're working 8-18 hours a week at 5-8 hours a time. It's not unrealistic to be able to manage that time effectively. The ones who have caring responsibilities in the bigger picture are a negligible figure.

      Aren't you the same chap who posted about being rich and paying random gay guys for sex and living off Daddy's money? Not all of us are as lucky as you to be able to stay at home, go shopping as we please or pay for sex.

      Okay so please tell me when i have time on my thursday for example: Wake up at 7am, get ready, do some exercise in the morning, leave by 8:30, in uni 9-1, working from 1-4 then 5-10pm then come home and have a shower. Do tell me when i'll have time in there to get my uni work done/go shopping/see friends/ect

      Don't assume everyone's on your schedule.

      It was straight guys, but that's not the point. I take time before and after things I need to do, like school, to do other things like that; I make time.

      I go to school Monday to Friday and wake up an hour early to exercise and get things done, why can't students who go to lectures that lets face it, mostly start at 11am, two to three times a week, do the same?

      This guy is about as pretentious as it gets, makes a thread on how busses are unbearable, another criticising people for drinking fizzy drinks and to top it off he is out there blowing men on daddy's account
