hidden_motives' progress report
My first report. This thread will be more for my own personal use, for me to check on my progress and identify weak points in my strategy than it will be for anything else. However everyone is invited to post words of advice or encouragement.
I am currently feeling down. I'm doing more than I do when I have a game to play, one that I don't feel like deleting, but I still don't know if I can manage myself well enough.
These last few days I've been spending more and more time visiting a forum on games. I post in threads that don't concern or interest me and visit the same threads multiple times a day. A lot of the people on this thread are like that. Every once in a while I feel a certain high from entertainment derived from one of the threads. It's definately relaxing to surf this forum.
However I start school in two days. I can't do poorly in my second year of Undergrad or no one will hire me when I graduate. I think I will be trying leechblock and shorter duration lockdowns. When I make lockdown periods of 100hours or more, I just use the 32 character password that I've written down to bypass leechblock and end up spending more time browsing than I would have. Once I get to college, I can get around this problem by leaving the password at home and doing all of my work at school. (hopefully).
I will also be speaking to my university's counselors to discuss ways of curbing my addiction to procrastination.
Meh, not everything is bad. I got an A, the presumably, highest score in my makeup class, so I'll be getting the credits for Calc 2 this semester, leaving me free next summer to pursue internships. Next summer I will also know to stay in Toronto.
I'd meant to write this yesterday but my internet connection went out.
