I know what you mean. I'm so far behind in my college work... I have exams the week after next and I haven't even gone to class this week.

Yeah, we have so many IMPORTANT things to do, and here we are on the WTA World Message Board! <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

It IS a lot more fun, though! <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

lol... I know how to prevent it. Throw away your computer <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> or just disconnect yourself from the interenet <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Good advice! While I'm at it, I should also chuck my TV, DVD, & CD players. Actually, I don't think the music is as distracting as the TV/DVD though. It actually motivates me sometimes.

ARGH! My To Do list seems to grow every day! I wish someone would invent a magic wand that would transform my good intentions to done deeds! <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

<img src="cool.gif" border="0"> Yes, but don't tell anyone! <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

Just kidding. Actually, Tammy's my half-sister. I'm 9 years older than she is. I'm the Tammy prototype (my dad taught me to play tennis in L.A., but it was too, too competitive for my taste). My dad got wise and moved back to Thailand with Tammy where she grew to be a big fish in a small pond, whereas I was a guppy in an ocean in the early 80's.

I miss it from time to time, but I enjoy being part of Tammy's posse! <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

When I have to crank out homework I just go without a lot of stuff I like and know that I'll get a reward if I can sit my ass down and hit the books or what not. To get over it you gotta totally force yourself to go without somethin you like in order to get stuff done. Give it a try!

I don't know, this sometimes works for me, but make your mind think that the due dates of certain papers, etc. is much closer than it actually is.
