    I don't have enough time is just the nicer way of saying 'I don't want to do it'

    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.
    I agree completely. The amount of people with a victim complex on my college course was shocking. It was so annoying having to be around them all week. So many excuses for why they didn't even do their work! >

    Those people then probably moaned they had "no idea" what was going on at college because they didn't pay attention or do any work, then somehow it's someone else's fault! If you want to have the time for things then you can. As you say it's a victim complex culture because people either don't know how or can't be bothered to utilise the time they actually have.

      Maths, further maths, physics, chemistry and English literature, and I want to study either maths or physics at university, most probably.

      All this makes me do is imagine you on your exercise bike,
      pedaling away with the NEED to tell someone.

      It wasn't that specific thing I needed to tell somebody, it was an example that you can fit in more things in your day then you realise. Maybe people should see how I live for a day, they'd learn something.

      Once you take Maths Chemistry Physics and Further maths, get home from school at 4 and have to stop working at half 6 because you parents are stupid/wierd and have so much work to do constantly you are forced to legitimately miss out revising a subject youll know how i feel...... My a-levels are going down the drain D; already get up at 6:25AM to get to school by 8 so i cant wake up earlier.


      in general though i know what you mean, my friend claims he doesnt have enough time to do all the homework hes set AND revise despite spending 90% of his awake time at home watching netflix or playing FIFA.

      Not everyone is in the same situation as you.
      I'm currently at boarding school, and no, we don't get a lot of time. I'm in school from 07:45 to 18:30 every single day, except weekends. Leave the house at around 07:30, and come back at around 19:00. When I get to house I have to do my work, which may well take up until about 22:30. I do three coursework subjects. I go to bed around 23:00, and get up at about 7:00. Don't get ready for forever in the mornings, but about 20 mins downtime is nice.
      So sh.

      I do the same subjects as you, but I do English literature as well. If people like your friend stopped wasting their time they'd get a lot more done!

      That surprised me - I'd guessed either Economics or Law.

      Why did you guess that? I'm interested in economics so I guess it's an option, I wouldn't do law though, too many law graduates floating around the country.

      Hey, it's me from the other thread.
      Dude, I actually love you. I fully agree with what you said about time management and no matter what everyone else is saying I think everyone can afford to use their time more efficiently. I'm inspired by how much **** you manage to get done.

      Aw thank you! While I've been on here this evening I've exercised, packed my bag and made lunch for tomorrow, making dinner now and I'm going to the theatre later with a friend. You can fit things in if you try!
