    I am taking 2 online classes working towards my masters. I have 3 chemistry quizzes due Monday...I am procrastinating like nobody's business! It is terrible! PLUS...I have a pre-calc final next week that I haven't been studying for! I feel like one of my non-motivated students! I need help!!

    Try thinking about how much money you will have to pay to retake the classes.

    Something else I do is put a timer on and I get to take a break when the timer goes off.

    I understand how easy it is to procrastinate. Well, all you can tell yourself is that you must do this & just get it over with.

    To start with, get off the Boards!!! LOL! Good luck! It can be tough to motivated yourself in the summer. I just finished a course. I needed an extention because I couldn't get it done at the same time as end of year report cards, then when school ended, I had a really hard time motivating myself to work on it. I did get it done, within my extension time. I'm sure you'll do fine. Somehow we find a way to fit it all in whether we procrastinate or not. Good luck!
