School & TF2

When I was in senior year (4 AP classes, so a large workload for HS) I just used any available time that I possibly had to do my homework so I wouldn't need to do it at home. Study halls (take 2 if your school allows it), time before classes, after you finish a test/essay, in class time for a project you've already finished, etc. Basically any time you would be messing around on your phone or whatever just get something done so you don't have to do it at home.

Take it as when you do a Diet. On a Diet you'd lose, and that's what the guy who needes the diet would see ("Omg no food"). That's why you have to keep in mind: Eventually the result is better. You will get thin.
Same thing here. There's no much to compare but I reduced my playhours by half + stopped taking stuff seriously when I went up to the 10th grade knowing that I will have no time due to exams. How to do that? Think of the result. (in my case end up like a life-less tf2player with 3 units of math (the lowest math level in my country) literally ask yourself do i want to end up like b4nny)

I would like to say something to help you, but I have always put grades first. Just do what I did and don't let yourself play any tf2 until your homework is done or enough is done so that you can stop playing and get more done later. Limit yourself to two hours a day a max or your gaming experience and life will start to conflict each other.

I used to be really addicted to TF2, and although I did well in school during the year my parents always took my monitor away during finals week. Eventually I just got sick of the game and uninstalled, you'll have moments where you install it again but that only happened once for me. Just try to get as much school work done as possible before you give in to the urge, but also try to make it quality work not mediocre.

Make yourself get used to not having or being able to use your computer for a while so then you're not always craving it. Its all self-control.

i havent read this entire thread and someone maybe said this already, but i had the same problem at one point and i found it extremely helpful to do homework and study outside of my apartment. try to find somewhere where you can minimize distractions like the library, and join or start a study group (this helped me so much when i was struggling). motivate yourself to do well by looking at the future rather than "let's kill a few hours in this video game tonight."

what also helped me was making study aids like flash cards and papers that summarized the important points of what a test is on. maybe it's personally because writing helps me remember things but try to find a good way to study that fits you and motivates you. everyone is different.

just remember the long term goals you have and don't get tunnelvisioned by short-term gratification.

I don't know how different Canadian Uni is from American Uni but generally the first year of school is just general education with one or two classes of yoru choosing thrown in unless you are overloading. I used to play a shit ton when I was in my first and second year because I had easy classes but once you get to upper level classes i.e your schedule is just full of uper div comp sci classes or in my case chemistry classes you run out of time to play as much as you used to.

@OP Check out https://getcoldturkey.com/ you can use it to block websites and I think? certain apps for a set amount of time.

i didn't read the whole thread, but do you still go to sleep after wasting the whole day procrastinating?

the easiest way to fix bad work ethic is to not sleep until your work is done. force yourself awake; it's not hard. and no, giving up on this strategy after one all-nighter isn't going to cut it. to reiterate, stay up until you physically give out.

this tactic might not be immediate if you can't help yourself from gaming, but you'll start to get angry because you're not allowed to sleep. so on top of your current trend of poor grades, you'll also be chronically sleep-deprived & moody. if that isn't a wake-up call, then there's probably something seriously psychologically wrong & this thread isn't qualified to help. if you're psychologically healthy, you'll eventually value sleeping over gaming, and you'll prioritize your work so you can get some sleep.

also, if your procrastination is purely brought on by stress, being sleep-deprived can alleviate psychological inhibitors that are preventing you from working in the first place.

and yes, this can get you into the (subconscious) mindset of "only do work when you're tired". but hey, it's certainly better than not doing work at all.

Personally, I'm not a fan of "cutting the game out" or "uninstalling steam" or shit like that - not because you should have those things installed, but because you're not facing the problem that way.

You gotta look that shit in the face and transcend it. It has to be there, available, and you have to consciously be like "nah, homework instead."

It's easier said than done, but it's mentally the healthiest way to go about it, and it will help you in the long run when other distractors take the place of tf2. You can't just go through life shutting things out and pretending they don't exist. It's like those people who try to "quit" smoking by chewing gum or hiding cigarettes. Shit never works. You gotta keep cigarettes on your person and still be like "nah son fuck that shit."

Again, easier said than done, but it will make you stronger; shutting it out and pretending it doesn't exist is a short term solution that will weaken you.

Make yourself believe that you don't like tf2 and find a shittier machine to do homework on. I did this and the last time i played tf2 was 4 weeks ago. Eventually you'll find other ways to procrastinate but because you aren't focused on a game you can easily just multitask. Tbh because of this method I've been able to completely shut off my urge to play games. But a more logistic option is doing what flatline suggested. Try finding a teacher or someone you're cool with to hangout after school with to get shit done. Sooner or later your work load will make you tired enough to not want to play games.

Honestly, doing a lot of extra curricular is great. I do a lot of theatre and a bunch of my mates are getting me to do wrestling. I maintain a solid 4-ish GPA. Keep yourself busy so you don't have the time to procrastinate.

And I know everyone is saying it, but the school library is your friend.

-protohassassin has some secret formula for this shit. the kids in uni taking comp sci while clocking in 80 hrs past 2 weeks

I left tf2 running for an entire day by accident LOL

but it seriously just comes down to work ethic and time management skills, there used to be a point where I was like really addicted to tf2 and like I wanted to play all the time, now its just like, I've lost half the drive and energy I used to have when I was like 13 years old, now Im 18, I have priorities and until TF2 can start paying bills then it is absolutely not worth jeopardizing your education and future for (especially if you have brown parents).

Also here's my secret formula: If you are trying to play TF2 or trying to get into comp (since you mentioned lobbies), You need to finish all your hwrk/study/whatever, and then when you are actually freed, you will play better because subconsciously you know you have nothing due. I used to hold myself back because i did a half ass job at keeping my concentration on a scrim or w/e because I was thinking about my hwk or due projects, but its really up to you man, you have the energy because you are a player trying to climb through the ranks, you have that drive, but you need to prioritize the more important things in your life, that is until TF2 explodes :B1:

This was already said but cant be said enough times.
Make a schedule when you do what, I mean I don't knwo your schedule but I easily have enough time to do all my work between coming home and 7pm, so I do the work when I come home and don't stop until im either done or it's 7pm.

What also helped me to actually keep this schedule was I n depth thinking about how your life will turn out if you keep going like this and what your goals are. In the beginning I thought id have to cut Gaming completely in Order to maintain good grades, but with a real schedule and no hour long Youtube or 9gag sessions I can easily do all my work +3hrs Gaming a day

Again, easier said than done, but it will make you stronger; shutting it out and pretending it doesn't exist is a short term solution that will weaken you.

I've been doing this with trying to eat better as well. It works a lot

[quote=sildeezy]Personally, I'm not a fan of "cutting the game out" or "uninstalling steam" or shit like that - not because you should have those things installed, but because you're not facing the problem that way.

You gotta look that shit in the face and transcend it. It has to be there, available, and you have to consciously be like "nah, homework instead."

It's easier said than done, but it's mentally the healthiest way to go about it, and it will help you in the long run when other distractors take the place of tf2.

Not sure if this was said but have good time management. I'm on my 4th year of college. I've lead UGC HL, UGC 6s, UGC 4s, and ESEA all in 1 season while going to college. I played and warmed up and got scrims. I did it all. What I did was is I got my homework done all by a certain time(5pm) and then was able to just game for the rest of the day without getting behind on anything or worrying. I'm sure it'll be different in your case but seriously try that. It'll give you the motivation to finish your homework so you can play.
