I'm trying to do college work on my computer, but my brain is literally trying to do everything to stop me doing so. This includes going on tsr haha. What can i do? I feel like i have lost all motivation to do college work. It's due in for tomorrow as well... I have felt like this since summer ended.

You lack discipline and are simply lazy.

If I may liken you to a pair of curtains: pull yourself together.

You are motivated to do those things with instant and visible rewards.

If that's how your brain works, you need to find stuff to reward your academic work and focus on the longer term / big picture.

Discipline is then about sticking to your work / reward structure without exception.

It's absolutely lazy. Doing things you like and then using it as an excuse to not do things you don't like is lazy.

Try pulling that excuse when you get a real job and you have to pay bills.

It's people like the OP who give millenials a bad name. I expect in a few months or next year, they will complain that their teachers didn't give them the right expected grade or didn't get their first uni choice and it's somehow not their fault.

No, get on and do some work.

You like choirs and going to the gym. Make those activities your rewards.

No academic work progress, then no gym or choir.

Simples.
