Default Answered: someone please help... its kinda urgent..??

I'm home schooled, I've been struggling with the same issue for a long time now.. School. There are lots of things I want to do in a day, but as soon as I wake up Its off to my computer for school. But because I do my school in my house, there are so many distractions. My biggest distraction right now is a book. My friend lent me a book and I can't get enough of it, so whenever I try to do school I can't concentrate. I just wish I was reading my book or just doing something else. I also have the temptation of the internet (and WI) being just a few clicks away from my school. Some people might say Well just get school done quick then you can read, but its not like that. When I'm done my school I have to do a heap load of chores, and read 4 chapters of my bible before I can do anything. If just feels like my school is a waste of my life, because I don't really learn anything. I rush through it so fast and don't pay attention, just because I want to get it over with. Can anyone give me tips on how to get everything done quickly but still get it done right?

You may not see school work as important right now, or even chores, but trust me, you are learning skills and attitudes that will most likely be used throughout your life. If you can work out a way to find that balance now, things will be easier for you in the future. Maybe you can think of the things you like to do best as rewards for doing the things you like least. That is how I have handled this sort of thing, and it has worked well for me throughout my life.
I admire the responsible and thoughtful way that you are dealing with this.
... and, if you haven't talked with your parents/caregivers about this in a calm way when you're not upset, I think that would be a good idea.
Good luck!!

You are most welcome, cocotruper. I truly hope that it helps you.
I modifed my original post, which doesn't show up on your quote, because I was modifying it as you sent your reply. Please notice the last sentence, in the above quote... worth a try...
Again, good luck.

Serena is right that your note is thoughtful.

A few practical suggestions.

1) If your school work is such that it is not challenging. . . make it challenging. (Yes, when I was in high school, and band was sooo easy, I would turn my music upside down and see if I could still read it! LOL) Sometimes taking a boring assignment and taking a little time to look up the history of the words in the assignment or the people in it will help you remember the material better and learn it better. (And maybe your assignment aren't challenging enough!) It's difficult to believe but almost anything can be made interesting if you dig deep enough into it.

2) Some educators would disagree, but I think it is good to read, listen, and write all your assignments. So, if you are given an assignment to read something, it may help to write down a little bit of what you think you read on scrap paper. Or if you are allowed, get a voice reader, and read the section silent first, and then let the computer read it to you. (This is very easy with a pdf file because recent adobe software has a voice voice reader installed in it.) Likewise, if you are typing something, make the computer read it back to you if you are able/allowed to install/find a voice reader.

Good luck to you!

I will definitely take these into consideration. Thanks so much for the advice!
