    Default help an ILE stop procrastinating

    I took this dumb course in real analysis and we had an assignment due this morning, only I started it a couple of hours before it was due and got 2/3 done before I had to hand it in. This is how I feel about that stupid assignment now.
    :hump::hump:


    Even though we had a whole week to finish it. I just couldn't make myself start on it because I was too immersed in other, really stupid non-educational crap. What the hell can I do??? Please help.

    You can do anything with a bayonet except sit on it.

    Get your nuts out of their vice.

    That must be a really painful distraction.

    Si is what got me in this mess in the first place. Maybe I should put my nuts in a vice for next assignment.

    Discipline? (I don't know the answer to this problem.) My IEE friend used to always develop relationships with his professors and that way he could write asking them for more time to complete something... I think his always had him doing as many interesting things as possible per unit of time and then he felt like he never had any time. So it wasn't that he was trying to "play the system" just that he wanted to do an excellent job and pursue a lot of interests at the same time, and was asking for help in the form of bending the rules (so to speak) so that time/schedules would change to match his interests... this worked because he had established raport with the professors in the first place.

    what's done is done. you fucked up. take your shitty grade on the assignment and use it to motivate you to start earlier next time.

    as a little help, thread stickied to keep the shame fresh

    I wonder why pandas have been having such a hard time reproducing in recent times?

    Maybe because there's no such chainsaw model as "Psychologist"?

    It's sometimes sadly true that the academic world isn't as interesting as other intellectual realms. I seriously wish I could get my Ph.D. by reading books by Clifford Pickover and Michio Kaku...

    anal(hehe)ysis.. Here is some real analysis: the only way is to do it. Maybe you should try some imaginary analysis. I mean so you won't lag behind on your gaming skills.

    actually I am also procrastinating right now, (got analysis and linear algebra(yay)) I've spent most of my time going to lectures and watching star trek voyager but I got a good feeling about the tests.
    is like a wet kiss on the cheek and a warm hug by a cute smiling girl.
    is the confetti shots on your birthday party with all your friends.
    is a way to completely rip apart the face of god and stare directly at the naked universe.
    is like over here and then over there and they are all connected and I am on amphetamine.

    haha I remember doing that at uni. I only semi procrastinate with stuff that's dead boring by interweaving eps of anime or sci-fi between milestones. It's true that the academic world can be uninteresting, but everyone has a different idea of interesting.*

    In the end, things will get done or partially done out of obligation (such as a deadline), however, you need some kind of motivation to get you started. I guarantee that if your assignment was something like, I don't know, sex, you'd be starting that assignment as soon as you got home (or in the class room if Your assignment involves your hot TA ). *
    LII kthnxbai!
