No need to convince, you'll realise your mistakes when you end up unemployed, impoverished, frustrated with your life and wishing you could start over again, but you won't be able to. You'll have to settle for a life of making up after mistakes of your youth.

If you wish to get somewhere it requires similar consistency and effort as doing your homework, if you can't do it, it's likely you can't do other things.

Don`t be the meathead Rob Lowe. Do your homework. And switch to DirecTV.

Or, if that first one didn`t work: "Don`t be a settler" (with your bad grades!)

Do it or you'll end up sad and depressed like me because you don't know how to make yourself work when you should, and you will forever waste your potential.

if you dont do your homework you will become more lazy and unable to do other stuff which you should, but if you do the homework you are giving up your soul because of some stupid shit which is completely arbitrary and pointless apart from the fact that society requires it, do you want to be a good little bitch or a champion of truth??

I wonder what the etymology of homework is.

Home + work? Work you do at home? People doing that are either writers or some kind of freelance.

Spoiler:
Okay dictionary.com uses a definition "schoolwork assigned to be done outside the classroom (distinguished from classwork)" So I'm guessing the word was made up after they modernized the education system? I'm betting it was the American system but then again the British one could also be a contender (post-1900)
Hmm..

---




This is why you should do your homework.

You see, I tell myself things like this constantly, but then I proceed to not do my assignments.

Lack of Ni? Denial? Why am I like this

Bleh, homework is so mundane.
Just do well on tests and turn in the occasional project and you'll be just fine. You'll have a slower start, probably, but what's the rush...

somehow managed to skip all that bullcrap and pass all the exams without understanding anything at all of it.

It's 1:45 in the morning and I'm up doing a fcking English project that has to be done before first period tomorrow. It's supposed to be a group project but somehow the most difficult part of it got heaped onto my shoulders! But it's worth a test grade so here I am!
Ahhhrrrrrggh!!

K I needed to come here and scream imma keep working

Btw yes I haven't been on here much at all recently and that's because I've been putting in a nice good effort to get my school shit done. I mean I'm still behind in a bunch of classes and I suck. But fck it I need to do shit in life and if i want to be able to study what i want and have the career i want then I've got to up my game and make up for the shit grades and attendance in my past. I have to make up for that and then do fantastic on top of it. Show colleges, and myself, that I'm badass and can do shit.

As an INTP who has had decades to recover from THAT trauma, here is what I'd have you KNOW:

The compartmentalization and over-specialization of as-if-DIFFERENT subjects and/or academic disciplines can engender schizoid fragmentation in an INTP's mind which wouldn't naturally occur as it does with _NTJ prone to discrete, fragmented compartmentalization by their naturally-occurring methods for dealing with complexity.

The `real' homework challenge is to resist compartmentalization and over-specialization WHILE finding the connections between what those presenting `content' would have you believe are dis-united, fragmented phenomena.

So ... as you're `doing' your as-assigned `homework' look for connections and ways of double- or triple-dipping.

Yo thank you so much
This is helpful shit.
Oof im going on a lil college tour this Friday- lookin into microbiology

Yess
What I take from all this is that in order for school to really click Iíve gotta put in outside effort
Like hey google that thing Iím learning about, find better perspectives on it, click some Wikipedia links and see what connects to what
I need to make a web or else things are more pointless
Gotta connect that shit together
See things
Yeah man I feel this thank you
Itís reasuring/ makes sense

.. Iíve been staring at my homework for two days straight, sitting all crouched up on my desk chair, uncomfortable, getting barely anything done
