how much time do you waste?

Sports, politics, movies, videogames, questionable hobbies, photos from your family vacation, etc. Talk about stuff that isn't ponies or music. But do try to stay on topic and respectful of alternate opinions.

how much time do you waste?

Postby Bronies Are Cool » 05 May 2013 19:31

for some reason, whenever I get on a computer to do work, I just check my emails, and mlr to see what's new. I often get carried away and waste 1 - 2 hours before I begin any real work.

Is anyone else like this? how much time do you waste with ponies and other random things?

In a maths tute right now, haven't done anything for 2 hours, just been exploring dubstepforum and Dogs On Acid since I sat down. I haven't been to a lecture for two weeks, haven't even started on the latest topic, and there's an assignment due on Monday...

I have one of the most important tests of my life tommorow and I've spent the last 2 hours playing assassins creed and making music about colored horses

Time management is not my forte, and I'm working on it. Clearly I'm not doing a very good job. AP exams this week, woo!

Too much. I've started a day with the intent of finishing a song, and I find I waste like 6 hours on skype first.

I waste my time quite much.
Like, I'm supposed to do tons of homework (which is already helping a lot), and I actually start doing it 'sort of' after two hours of half MLR half on-guard-for-parents.



Yea... I'm stupid.

Quit browser, quit Skype, quit irc, leave only DAW open, then go take a walk around the block, then come back and compose down any ideas you have in mind, no matter how lame and cheesy they might seem to you.

Continue to develop this to a final track -- feel free to skip doing parts you don't want to do and use loops or parts of your previous projects -- until you have some sort of arrangement of your track.

Save this. Decide to publish or not.

Then repeat from start -- go outside, take a walk, come back and compose ideas down.

The secret why you need to do this is simple -- you get cheap practice with low expectations. If you do this every day, in a month you have experience of 30 trainwrecks that you know how to avoid.

In 5 years, your worst track done this way will be better than your best track right now.

This. Completely this. Along with gaming, I waste a majority of my free time.

Also, AP Exams next week. AP European History is going to be a fantastic exam. (Massive Sarcasm) 3 Essays and a test in 3 hours.

loads. loads upon loads. It's not even on music either. In my day-to-day free time after school, I usually end up listening to youtube subscription emails and bothering my friends on facebook. And MLR of course. God forbid I ever start using skype regularly. On weekends I tend to watch stuff, like whatever TV show im trying to get caught up on, but only rarely do I think to myself "I should work on music" because I have most of those thoughts in school when I can't do any music things. Mostly I just have to have so much free time that I get bored of the usual stupid things I do and try to music, like during the summertime. Or I need to be really into the project im working on. But right now I feel pretty motivated to start learning how to electronic music production and make some house for Nine Volt's album thing :3

sorry, I tend to ramble when I start figuring things out about myself.

I waste all my time (and money) on ponies.

Though, ponies is the one thing I truly find myself appreciating nowadays so I wouldn't so much call it a waste, but a socially misunderstood investment.

But, somehow I passed all of my classes this semester and managed to not get fired from my job, so I guess I'm not wasting THAT much time.



But still - I WAS late to school last week because of this:

today, I wasted about two hours playing Jet Pack Joy Ride on my 60 inch tv. TWO HOURS!!!
I've never played that game for more than twenty minutes before! how the heck can I waste two hours playing such a simple game?

And now I'm wasting my time on this instead of doing homework. (seems like a theme...)
