    Let's be honest, the only reason you have this account is to interact with normal middle class students. It must suck that people only see you for your money.
    You're right, that is why I made this account, to interact with different sorts of people than I'm used to. Sometimes I think it does suck that people only see me for my money, right again.

    We all have our own issues. Maybe I don't want to be liked by everybody, for example, because I don't agree with all the typical teenage rubbish.
    Your posts are the most ironic teenage rubbish I've read on here in quite a while lmao.

    That's my point though. Instead of looking down on everyone and being so self superior try to understand. Im sure the rich snobby pricks you interact with are busy wasting their lives but genuine students have other things such as financial issues. Some have to work to support their family when theyre 16. Yes, a lot of ppl waste their time but they dont have the right sort of support that you get.

    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.
    No but yeah but getting up an hour earlier makes me feel dreadfully tired. Too tired to do any exercising or anything useful.

    With regards to TV, the sheer amount of adverts makes not watching TV much easier as they make TV a chore to watch.

    Older as in 16 to 24, not 42, because they're straight and it's exciting. I get loads of gay and bi guys for free, because I'm attractive. The show I'm seeing is about to start so I'm turning off my phone now.

    This is not what normal 16yos do. You can mock us for watching netflix but id rather watch netflix than take it up the bum.

    There's always time. 24 hours per day in fact. It's how you use that time, aka what you value. If you "have no time to exercise" you do not value your health more than you value the things you do instead, like watching netflix. Simple.

    I've been following this thread for the past 24hrs now as I find it pretty interesting. The OP has fair points to be honest. It's just his attitude about it that isn't the most welcoming. I think he's well aware by now that he came across as bragging. And I don't think he cares what we all think about it!

    Hey, Glassapple, mind giving us a detailed breakdown of today? Or even over the next several days of this week? I like the point you're trying to make here, but I think it was ineffective to use your day off as an example. Not everyone has completely free days to use as they wish so it's hard for people to relate to.

    I have days where I'm great with time management and others where I might sleep in until 11am and then just spend most of the day relaxing, socialising, and playing video games if I don't have any upcoming deadlines. That's my choice of how I like to pace myself. I don't consider it a waste; I feel the odd recreational day is well-earned after day after day of errands, classes, and studying. I'm very passionate about my hobbies and struggle with severe depression (and as it has come up in this thread - meds and therapy didn't work for me so I'm battling it solo!) and find that on a day to day basis I don't always have the energy to indulge in my hobbies after taking care of the necessities. It's always a matter of a lack of energy for me; not a lack of time.

    Also, while students being lazy or unclean or eating unhealthily doesn't bother me (well, not that I no longer live in halls!) I will say there is nothing worse than when you know someone's had a deadline for MONTHS and then it gets to two days before and they're all, "I'VE NO TIME." Like dude I know you've spent the past four months staying up 'til 3am every night playing Xbone because you tell me that every morning when I'm waking you up in class again. :banghead:

    If you're studying something virtually unemployable like media, journalism, fashion, sociology, psychology, land studies, PE, drama, criminology, etc you'll need to volunteer in whatever just to have one more thing to put on your CV, and at most if you're extremely lucky you'll get an entry-level job.
    lol, can you tell that to my sister please? She studied psychology at uni and walked into a job. Applied for a job within the prison service and walked into that.

    Yeah, really sounds like something virtually unemployable.

    It is entirely dependant on the individual, some degrees agreeably are more employable than others but if you have that drive to go out and apply to jobs/put in 100% effort in every interview (research, research, research), then as long as you graduate with at least a 2:1 you stand a good chance of getting something.

    Also not having a weekend job during University is a major mistake people make.

    Could you elaborate on this? I'd be interested to hear your reasoning and to see which perspective you're looking at it from.

    That is not quite right. If it is considered that people are sleeping 6 up to 9 hours, there are 15 up to 18 hours left to use the day. Working time and time for learnung excluded.

    Well it's not technically wrong, there are 24 hours in a day. Unless you want to be pedantic about there being 23 hours and X minutes.

    You are of course totally right about the amount of usable time though and once you account for an average 8 hours sleep, time spent showering, eating exercising and so on it's often closer to 12 hours per day. Arguably all of the above are absolute necessities if you want to keep living and for a long time.

    Realisitcally someone has 12 hours per day, or 84 hours per week of time to do with as they please, which may include work, education, hobbies and so on. The exact number is irrelevant though, the point is that the quantity is sufficient to fit in whatever you need to do. In it's most basic form you can take 8 hours for sleep, 8 hours for work/education, 4 hours for keeping yourself alive and healthy (eat, exercise) and be left with 4 hours every single day. It never works out like that but it's good for opening people's eyes to how much time they waste.
