@Linde, I'm right there with you. I need to be working on the grid for our library association conference. I'm in charge of getting it all straight this year. But, all I want to do is be here on the BB. I do at least have the files I need to work on pulled up on the computer. I can see a little bit of one of them out to the side of my browser screen. See the little colored squares?

Yeah I see, looks good from what I can see (which isn't much but still, lol). It's not even that I want to be on here instead of being busy for school, it's that I have no motivation to do anything for school. The thought I would spend as much time on projects and homework and studying as I did last year makes me feel annoyed already. The fact that it's not necessary to get any ECTS this year because I've got so many last year doesn't really help either.

I strongly dislike this year's subjects too. I don't fully understand what's expected from me and I'm constantly wondering if the teachers are just explaining the subjects badly or if I'm not paying attention good enough because I feel kind of dumb because I don't really know what I have to do. Last year I could skip classes and understood everything, got straight A's, had to help people out with projects or what to do, had to explain stuff to them, and now it's like my IQ has dropped to that of a monkey or something.

I've never been this unmotivated in my life. I really can't be arsed doing anything for school and I don't give a flying F at this moment. Also, it's 4.30 pm and I'm already in my pajamas because I also can't be arsed with putting some clothes on. 

Exact same here Linde, I have an Irish essay opened in Microsoft word that I have to learn for Tuesday but I don't give a damn.

 

Bad attitude I know a-hard-days-night-paul-3 

I have made an agreement with my mam to hand over all internet devices for the week and only evenings on weekends- it should give me a kick in the arse to do some work (hopefully)

Haha my mom used to do that when I was in secondary school. I didn't have a mobile phone until the 9th grade but I did have a computer I wasn't allowed to go on to yet. It didn't really help because I would find other distractions.

We need to remind ourselves what we're doing this for. That should be enough motivation. That's what I keep on telling myself.

Anyway, there are 2 subjects I really like and like to work on, so that's some progress I guess. One of them is called Research and Prevention and we basically have to do research to something that's of social relevance. We chose to ask ourselves what reasons there could be for young people from  18 to 25 to use drugs at festivals. We have to interview people, use theory and analyze articles and the interviews. It's pretty complicated but we're really rolling through it so easily.

Another confession: @fabfouremily emailed me ages ago and I still haven't replied, because I keep on forgetting about it and everytime I think about it I'm not near a computer or don't have the time. Sorry Emily, I promise I'll email you asapa-hard-days-night-ringo-6

I'm getting better :P my phone is on the window sill slowly wasting away due to disuse.

However I have a 10-30 minute daily limit on my blocked websites (that includes beatlesbible.com- sorry it's just damn well addictive). 

I do owe about 4 people responses to PMs, Christ- there isn't enough time in the day paul-mccartney

THAT'S THE SPIRIT!

30 minutes? Woah that's short. I always tell myself ''okay if you study for an hour/finish this or that you can go on this or that website for half an hour before you continue'' That works way better for me. 

Did you make it with the essay by the way?

I am jealous of the teenagers on this forum. You all are so smart. If this forum (as opposed the websites of some other singers...Joe pointed out some to the mods the other day in the course of a discussion) is any indication, it seem as though The Beatles attract the cream-of-the-crop of today's teenagers.

I couldn't have expressed myself at that age as well as all you do. Heck, some of you out express me the age I am now.

There, I confessed.

@Linde The "website blocker" on my computer starts from 5pm (when I should start work- stress should) and lasts 'til 9pm but that's so that my brother can go on his own websites.

I did do the essay yes, ending up writing about how teenagers (in particular) mental and physical health are affected by the fashion industry- I was told it was original, everyone else just talked about cyber bullying :D

@AppleScruffJunior I'm curious as to which users have what names... And I also still think Lind sorry Linde!

Lin-da, Lind-uh, Lin-duh... I will get it right!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

Do any of you remember @acmac? Or perhaps you have come across some of her posts. I told her once in a PM that I am freakingly jealous of the way she writes. I hope she will come back and join us one day.

I don't really talk a lot about the forum but

Mr. Moonlight (who hasn't been on ages actually) is Stuart, I always had a weird inkling that his real name is Stuart but if it isn't oh well

Zig is Dave, I refuse to believe that Zig has any other name but Dave

MMM is Rodney (after Dave)

Joe is.......Joe...

 

This actually seems really weird when I type it out but screw it a-hard-days-night-george-10

Hey, shouldn't the "person above me " thread be exclusively about what we perceive about the various forumpudlians, like AppleScruffJunior has names for them etc?

I'm very honoured @AppleScruffJunior as that conversation between Trigger and Rodney is one my favourite moments in 'Only Fools And Horses'. Two others are Del's heartbreaking explanation of why he is how he is after Grandad's funeral (20:45 -> 23:12 here) and Uncle Albert recounting meeting a lion.
