PC Problems.

Posted May 26th, 2014 at 2:21 PM by Akiba

Sometimes, I can't get off PC.

I try.

I try again.

But I can't get off. I leave two tabs open, one for each of the two forums that I hold a predilection for on that particular day.

I change tabs, trying to focus on my work. I think about my work for a couple seconds. Then I switch back to the two tabs, bash Ctrl-R, seeing if any of the most recent threads have bolded titles.

If they do, I click on the thread, read the most recent post, and make my own post. The process is then repeated.

If not, I return to my work in disappointment, only to return after a few seconds, thinking Last time I just missed it. Someone has posted by now. Repeat.

And hours pass. And I realize that my work is not done.

    Give one of these a shot (I've only used the latter, although I assume the former works in the same way) if you're finding it hard to avoid PC.

    ...not that it's a place that anyone can get away from and stay sane anyway, heh. d:

    Do it, it's worth it. The homework has to get done sooner or later.

    Not homework, it's my freelancing work.

    my inner techie self saw your title and thought you had actual computer problems. no worries. You just need some self control. Use the apps Axton provided you and you'll be on your way to finishing the things you need to finish. :)

    Again, I use Linux. Those aren't of any help.

    Lol. Then again, I wrote the blog post as something people could relate to, not as a request for help :3
