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.

I have an AP Calc exam tomorrow, and I had the chance to study during my 4th period because there was a sub, but I ended up just listening to deadmau5 and playing boxhead.
My goal is to be capable of making any kind of music that strikes my fancy, and do it well.

I have the same exam, but I've been trying to study like freaking hell. I caught a terrible fever the week that went over Infinite Series, so I never learned them, so now I'm just doing problems like crazy.

And yet... I still haven't gotten all that much done, as so many other things have gotten in the way...

Dude don't stress yourself out too much by overstudying. I mean, definitely do some studying and review, but don't spend the rest of the day and night studying. And definitely get some sleep tonight.


By the way, I was musically productive today yay! :D

I wasted all my lunch and biology class creating pixel art in minecraft. Who knows what the second picture is from? (yes, its two pictures, but its kind of hard to tell that its two pictures.)

I'm done studying, at this point I'm of the mind that if I haven't gotten it in a year I'm not getting it a few hours before the test.

Currently putting off an essay that was supposed to be turned in last week, it's now around 1:00am. Whoops.

Managed to negotiate an extension and make it due tomorrow, but I've been getting horrible writer's block with this damn thing so it's not even close to finished. Guess I won't be getting much sleep tonight. Brb, gonna block every website for a while.

The way i see it, if something is truly important to me, then i would be doing it. Otherwise, I don't. It all depends on what that something represents to me. I've been doing that for a while, and then i learned the concept of opportunity cost and figured out the motivation behind my actions. so if i decide to watch K-ON all day instead of studying for my english lit ap test, it's not because i'm lazy, it's because the value of watching K-ON outweighs the value of studying for 6 hours for that exam. and then I get to the exam and pass it because i already know how to write well. So according to me i don't waste any time ever. I sometime mismanage my priorities, but i never waste time.

That's the way i see collabs too. If one party isn't working on the album, there's probably a schism in priority, and a problem with the dynamic of the group. Therefore, the only way to proceed is to issue proposals towards what value they may get from the collab. After that, you just go about your daily life, and if you value that commitment, you will find time.

I reallllly try to avoid it tbh. I've gotten to the point i don't check tumblr feeds as much, never have been a guy who's wanted to waste a few hrs in group skype chats (although intermitant BMD chat is the big exception), and do most of my forum surfing and posting only on my work days. When it's days off i really try to music and then do same late night l4d2 if i need to blow off some steam.

I tend to waste entire days without working on music, and usually only work on school-related stuff after 6 p.m.
It's a bad habit I really need to get over.

Believe it or not, most of my time is not wasted here. In fact, most of my time 'wasted' (meaning no music production; I enjoy all of these activities) is on TV Tropes, Cracked, hanging out with friends (all day every friday at the very least), or playing video games (COD Zombies and Darksiders 2 most recently. I'm also going to get Fallout 3 (fuck new vegas :3) soon, so that'll take a good chunk of time during the weekends).

I have ten TV Tropes tabs open right now, and that's less than half of what I had yesterday :3
