Ask me tomorrow.
HHAHAHA naw im just kidding. Ok so thats the oldest joke in the book, I dont really feel like coming up with a new one right now. Ill get back to you later.
Anyhow the way to stop procrastinating is by literally eliminating those distractions from your life. Now im not saying you have to stop using facebook or twitter, you just have to find a place in your house where there are no computers, no TVs, no iPod apps or iPhone apps. Just a simple...boring room. When i was a kid, i took the closet under the stairs in my basement as my anit-procrastionation room. It didnt really work, instead I would end up drawing on the walls and sleeping. But it could help you. Find something like that. Somewhere where you go everyday to do your homework. Eventually you will have to change up because the sight of that place will make you sick, so try different spots. Try working outside. Have a nice desk somewhere, and just get it done, and THEN you can spend all the time in the world wasting it on twitter and facebook.
If you really must, get away from home. Often times, doing it at school really helps. I used to do it in my most boring classes. I had to repeat algerbra (i wonder why?), and i would do the assigned homework while he was teaching the class. Granted, I ended up getting in trouble, but it worked out for a while. They would usually just send me to the front office, and I would do my homework there. They would always say "homework is for HOME. HOME-work." Id usually tell them "Well they wouldnt let me live at the school, so this is my next best option."
If you have a study hall, that helps too. Get the bulk of your boring homework done during a study hall. Or even stay after school and do it. Im sure your school has a cafeteria or a library. Have your parents pick you at a different time. Finish your homework before dinner and then you can spend the rest of the night screwing off.
Also, on days you feel like it, try sitting at a local coffee shop or your local library (man i sound like im writing a pamphlet for this). Find a starbucs somewhere, have a drink and crank down to it. I usually see TONS of kids after school doing their homework at a coffee shop. Usually its just douchey college kids who want to show off their fancy computers, but hey, its really quite effective. The reason being is because there are NO distractions for you. Just you, a table, a drink, and your schoolwork.
Just remember this. Have the mentality that you just want to get this stupid homework done. Beat the teachers at their own game. If they are going to force you to do hours of homework and ruin your life, prove them wrong. Get your stuff done and then you can screw around.
So granted this is advice a parent would give you, but unplug your computer, hide your phone, and get that stupid work done. Homework is very important. Trust me. If you do what I did and feed my work to the dog (well actually i have a cat... but same thing right?) it will catch up to you. and one day it will be your senior year of high school and you will be thinking of college and you will be telling yourself WHY didnt i do my homework when i was younger! it will catch up to you. But dont let homework take over your life. once you start doing your homework, it becomes a habit. You find ways to cheat.. uhh.. i mean you develop "strategies". And you work faster and faster! Just get it done!
And once you develop that habit, homework will be fun!
HAHA nah jk jk. It will never be fun. But you will be proud of yourself! :)
17 years screwing around in school. 1 year left.
