If you don’t want to do your homework…

If you are like me (which I hope you aren’t), then you have had a day like this one. You fall out of bed at the sound of your alarm, limp to the shower, eat something (you have forgotten what), and collapse on the floor next to a pile of library books, notebooks, and your laptop (collectively known as your homework). I have languished in this spot for 3 hours now, and I am sad to report that in the battle of Lily v. Homework, Homework has taken the lead.

But, do not despair. Yes, Homework has won the battle, but I will win the war (and so will you)! If you don’t want to do your homework either, here is something that you can do instead:

Your homework! I know. I know, but hear me out. Homework can be painful and annoying, but I can guarantee that you will have much more fun hanging out with your friends if you don’t have the ghost of Homework-Not-Yet-Done looming over your head. Here are somethings that help me to buckle down and bite the bullet:

  • Make a To-Do-List: You don’t even have to do the work. Just plan out when your future self is going to do it. This way, you can make sure that you can get everything done before the deadline, and it feels really good to check an item off on the list when you are done.
  • Start small: Finish the easiest assignment first, pat yourself on the back (maybe take a little break), and move on to bigger and better things.
  • Do your research first: It is tempting to just open up Word and start typing, but if you don’t know what you are going to write (because you didn’t do the research), you will still be sitting with an empty page hours later. Trust me. I know. Researching while you write is not as efficient as researching first, writing an outline, and then typing up your paper up in a jiffy.
  • Take Breaks: When you finish an assignment or when your mind just gets stuck, take five minutes or so to take a walk, get something to drink, and stretch.

Some books that can help you conquer your homework:
