    I need some help guys.

    I'm a student. As of late my grades have been coming progressively worse, i just feel like i care less and less about everything. I'm not exactly depressed but some just feels off. My grades are the primary problem though. I go to a private boarding school and if my grades arent good enough i risk not being asked back. plus my parents have decided that if i cant round off the year with at least an 80% average i will not be allowed to go back. In the first term I got a 76% average and right now it just keeps sinking. I care a lot about the school and it would kill me to not be able to come back next year, but i just feel like it's a lost cause and i cant pull it together(even though i know if i focus down hard enough on it i can). I'm plenty smart enough to do the work, but i just cant seem to get my work ethic going. i spend a ton of time procrastinating and i have a lot of trouble actually getting started on my work. So does anyone have any suggestions on how i can improve my work ethic and get my grades and life back together a bit?

    Do your work before you start doing other stuff. I sleep at 3AM everyday because I waste time on neo and the forums before I start doing my homework

    I have the same problem. You just have to stop spending so much time on here and Neo. The way I see it, you can either spend time online right now and stress to do the homework later, or do the homework now and not stress about being online later.

    I did the exact same thing my last semester, which was the first semester at this university. I hardly studied and mostly was on the computer or playing games. I got 2 B's, a C and a [horrible] D. Now I'm just determined to do better this semester, but I'm still struggling. You just need something to shock you into getting your priorities straightened.

    Well my method is to quit doin' all the unnecessary things in my daily life and focus on studies.
    And pay extra attention during class.
    Worked for me in HS and it still works for me in college atm.
    Sacrifice some to get some. xD
