Mess Around Instead
We see you with your textbook open.
YOU: I just don’t feel like studying right now. I’ll worry about it later.
You close your textbook and start playing video games. You get a text message.
YOU: Who's that?
You reply to the text message. You continue to multitask and lose track of time. Pan to clock – it’s now 9:00 pm.
YOU: Whoa, I can’t believe it’s 9:00! Now I have to do an all-nighter! But how am I gonna stay awake and focus?
