I found this several weeks ago, but have held it back because it seemed might it be most helpful during midterm and final weeks. Self-Control is an app that prevent you from cruising your Facebook and Twitter feeds and email for a specified amount of time, ideally forcing you to focus on your essay/project/exercise/research/studying.
This brings to mind a FB friend who is also a SCAD student, and how at 8:30 p.m. EST the Sunday night of week nine of fall quarter I spotted a FB post lamenting how she still had half her final paper to write in the next 3.5 hours….Omgosh, get off Facebook then! You’re giving me heartburn!
But I’ve been there, I’m sure most of us have. So a little self-control would not go amiss. Check out selfcontrolapp.com or others like it, create some new habits while on deadline! (And I’ll report at finals week, too.)
