I know I should be doing uni work. It’s that time of the semester again, when assignments start piling up and your stress reaches such a level that you just want to tear at your hair and scream. I’ve got about a million assignments due soon and I’ve hardly worked on any all day. I know I’m behind on the singing assignment due at midday tomorrow and I can hardly get up before 10 these days and I have a class at 11 for an hour so… don’t know how I’ll manage to get that done. Because my phone died while I was in the middle of recording and even if it’s charged now, it’s too late to be singing.
I know it’s bad I haven’t worked on my essay for a few days. I know it’s bad I haven’t even STARTED my report or the two theory assignments due on Monday. I know it’s bad that I leave things until the last minute. But it’s so hard to stay motivated. It’s so hard to want to do work. It’s so hard to focus on work for five minutes.
Because there’s so many other things I could be doing. Useless, fun things.
Things like listening to a whole album (or three or four) on Spotify. Or watching YouTube until late. Or chatting with friends over Messenger. Or reading my old Facebook posts on my music page. Or discovering cool blogs on Tumblr. Or scrolling through Instagram. Or relaxing with a good book. Or walking to the beach. Or playing a song I wrote that I don’t have to practice for uni. Or uploading a video to YouTube of myself playing that song. Or learning a new cover. Or writing a whole new song for that matter.
Or writing this post.
With all these things to do, why would anyone want to do uni work?
