Midterms are coming. Ya know what that means. Your friends on Facebook suddenly become a lot more interesting. Your friends on Snapchat suddenly need about a thousand snaps of you trying to start work. Your room suddenly needs to get cleaned. You get the picture. You’re distracted, and you need to get started. OTH is going to help you out with that, so we’ve come up with a list of distractions you should watch out for:
1. Youtube – There are a lot of cats and puppies and tutorials and ten million other things that you will suddenly become interested in seeing instead of doing your work. Don’t do it. Click X. Remove adblock. The 30 second ads will deter you (maybe). Don’t use those 30 seconds to “study”.
2. Friends – No one wants to do work right now, you included. Hang out with your friends and you will fail. Don’t fail.
3. Every little task you’ve been putting off now – These things will suddenly become very attractive. In your mind, it’s become an immensely big deal for you to finally update your Facebook to reflect your current interests because people look at your profile.. and stuff, right?
4. “15” minute naps – Don’t do ’em. Don’t sleep because you’re too “tired”. You’re going to forget to wake up and cry because you wasted 10 hours in bed.
So here you go. Be aware of these four things and you will (perhaps) do well.
