I'm usually pretty bad about procrastinating when I have an assignment, but as of late I have taken steps to combat that. I set up a second user account (on my computer that is) and titled it "Productive [MyName]" and put a bunch of parental controls on it so I can't play game or go on any websites I'm bound to waste time on. I can still bypass it with a password, but it creates one more layer to procrastinating and reminds me not to do so. I feel great when I'm working, because I'm in a space especially designed for that and I've gotten a lot more work done since I did I set up the account yesterday!

PS, no, I didn't fall down and bypass the parental control to get onto Scarleteen. I felt like I 'd done enough work for the night and I'm rewarding myself with some fun time.

I am ME and that is the only label I need.

Wow Moonlight, that sounds like a fab idea. Clever you. I could have done with one of those when I was studying! [Wink]
