I have learnt (still taking lessons) how to be rude to people. So no, not a waste of my time entirely.

Edit: Although I probably should be studying more often than I am posting on the site.

Hahah, I get that.

There is a direct correlation between the time I spend on here and the amount of tasks I have, it's sad :')

If I don't get my sh*t together, will definitely be deleting my account (again lol) for uni.

How many times do you plan on deleting accounts? (don't leave!!!) I know what you mean though, I keep deleting social media thinking I will be more productive, but then there are always other ways I will actively seek that destroy my concentration.

I wanted to delete mine some time ago too, until I realised it is nice to talk to students online who are honest about their experiences. Friends and classmates - in my experience - invariably become toxic and competitive. Anyways, there are some really helpful people on the site and I am incredibly clueless so I need all the advice I can get.

As many times that will give me the illusion that I'm a focused and serious person, till I realise that deleting TSR just means I'll just find another way to procrastinate (even if it's staring at walls) :lol:

**Tbf though, deleting it in March was actually pretty useful (but please don't do the same).

That's very truee actually. I think then it's just a matter of self-discipline (lol) in terms of how we spend our time on here and for how long.

Absolutely this is a waste of time, but wasting time is a speciality of mine so that's why I'm here so often.

Talking about self-discipline, I lack it so entirely. I am honestly so bad when it comes to being in control of my actions. Recently though I am coming to realise that the whole "OMG WHAT IS UP WITH ME, WHY AM I LIKE THIS" mentality is simply a way of subtlety disregarding the fact that we are in control and thus we need to take responsibility for our actions. It just so happens that there are like 5 different people living inside of me, each with a mind of their own. So one moment I am motivated, next working, soon after crying, a little bit later writing and then mostly doing **** all.

I am the exact same way!! It feels like it’s a constant battle of what I want to do and this thing (ego?) that is constantly trying to sabotage me. Trapped within my own self (as much as this makes me sound like an angsty teenager).

What you’re feeling is what I felt in the last months leading up to my exams and it really screwed with my exam and school performance. I think what I realize now is that this tends to happen when you spend too much time by yourself and/ or worrying. The more I isolated myself the more my productivity and sanity declined. I’d think that saying no to going out with my friends meant that I’d be more productive and focused when really it had a negative effect on me. I stopped going to the gym and playing the sports I love all in the pursuit of doing better academically when it really just was self-sabotage.


Is this what’s going on with you?

One of My friends achieved a final grade in the 40s for the IB externals (keep in mind she used to get low grades) and she attributes it to finding the balance, staying focused and on top of her tasks and not wasting time at all. She made time to go out (once a week), exercised almost everyday and this helped her stay on top of her tasks, refuel and be more productive (and happy).



** Sorry for the novel I just wrote, hahah. It’s just that what you described is too close to heart.

Its a good way to waste time, I don't want to know how many hours I've wasted on TSR this past few months when I probably should've been doing something more productive but it is a good place to ask and answer questions relating to many things that students/teenagers/young adults will be experiencing and If I can help others using things I've learnt then it makes it worth while.
