i am studying
every inch of your body
Two down, three to go!
basically, anyone reading this knows that tumblr + studying = difficult. we’re all procrastinators. so i thought i’d share my favorite ways to crack down, not suck, and make it through finals week. you’ll need
- this or this. it’ll whip your ass into gear. you name a list of websites that distract you, set a timer, and bam. no more hour long study breaks. the best - or worst - part is, it can’t be undone by the application, by deleting the application, or by restarting the computer. you just gotta wait, and if you’re going to wait, you may as well study.
- goals. when you sit down to study, write down everything you’re going to do. then do it. aimlessly staring at your books won’t do shit.
- something to listen to. i suggest movie scores, song covers by the vitamin string quartet, or white noise.
- a queue. if you’re really obsessed with keeping your blog up to date, set aside some time, fatten up your queue, and let your blog run itself for a few days.
- breaks. during your breaks, dance, run around, work out, go for a walk, talk to your friends, call your mom. going back on the internet is an easy way to get out of the mood, so i wouldn’t suggest it.
- tea and coffee - if not for the caffeine, then for the feeling of cozying up with your text books and feeling studious.
- a place to study. it doesn’t matter if it’s in a coffee house, a library, or your kitchen table. as long as your bed’s not in sight and tempting you into a nap, you’re good.
that’s all i’ve got. i’d try to think of more, but that, my friends, would be procrastinating. off to study.
it costs $10 but freedom will shut down your internet access entirely for up to 8 hours and is basically the reason my last psych paper was on time.
My internet card’s a USB stick, so I have literally pulled it out and handed it to my roommate, or hidden it in the bottom of the rice bin.
Downloading SelfControl now because I NEED IT. This is going to be the best app ever.
i’m not even procrastinating my work anymore i’m just not doing it
its back on my dash
Sipping wine while studying the City Dionysia festival and looking for inspiration for my five page paper over it. So far, not working.

I am so doing this with chocolate.
