Productivity Woes

I have a Statistic's Midterm tomorrow that I need to be studying for, but there are so many other things I'd rather be doing. Here I am doing one of them, posting a blog about my woes, so you can read about them. I would rather be playing Pokemon Sapphire, because I have never beaten that game; I would also much rather be trying to get through Mass Effect, but that will have to wait for December when I am on my month long winter break.

I have always had trouble motivating myself to study for any test, largely because I have always been really skilled at school. I graduated High School with a 3.3 GPA without trying for a single class. So far my GPA in college is 3.2, again, without much effort put into studying. Writing is easy for me, putting words together to form coherent sentences is something that I take pride in; and as any of you who are in college know, college is largely paper writing. So now that I am deciding to take my math requirements for my degree I am faced with the problem of not being the above average grade, below average effort student that I have been for the last 15 years of my educational life.

This is a problem, it's effecting my self-esteem. I can't just coast through this class and understand everything the first time? This is new to me, and I know I'm sounding very narcissistic right now, but believe me, if you were in my shoes you would be feeling the same.

Luckily I found a way to get into the mood to work, and once that I am in that mood work get's done. It's a real simple thing, two websites put me into this state of work-overdrive. These two sites are:
Listen to these two together my friends, these will put you in the mood to be classy, to relax, to get work done, or all three at the same time. You can listen to the song for three hours and not even notice that it has played through 30 or 40 times.

So that is my rant, and my solution. I hope some of you can empathize with me, and perhaps some of you are the exact same way. Hopefully the two websites I've given make a difference on your study habits, sleeping habits, or just give you something else to listen to while you are sitting in your room talking to your man or woman.
