distractions, distractions.

So with all online school I am CONSTANTLY distracted.

Sometimes I think I will not be able to stand it even one more day. Senioritis has hit full force. And I still have 34 credits 'til graduation; that could be a problem.

I will be partway through an assignment, but since I am on my COMPUTER, I may as well check facebook, my blog, my bank account.. browse pinterest, watch a tv show, chat with someone... the possibilities are endless my friends!

Not to mention... it is just that much easier to walk away from. I am not in a classroom on campus being forced to listen to lectures. I can pause mine and go run errands or make a million excuses of other things I would much rather be doing.

Anyone else have problems with such distractions?

+On a random side note, I have noticed how ridiculous I am after work if I am still in uniform. Listen to how pathetic this is... So one day I went to lunch with my friend after work. We went to the frozen yogurt place next door afterwards. To hide my embarrassment I tried as hard as I could to hide the YOGURTLAND logo on my lime green polo. Bet they didn't even notice a thing.

Also, I feel obligated to be super healthy when I am in my 24 Hour Fitness work shirt, so if I happen to be wearing it and buying something like let's say a soda, I also try my best to cover the dang logo.

Not that people would really care, but I still feel like they'd be judging me! You know? Maybe I'm just paranoid. "Look at that gym girl buying soda, doesn't she know how bad soda is for you?"

Hahaha!! You are too funny! I totally get it though. :) funny story about healthy drinks-
So as we were on our big drive from Alaska to Utah this summer we stopped at a gas station (obviously) somewhere in nomans land Canada. As my BIL was buying a drink that was supposedly healthy, my sis told him how it in fact was not healthy. The girl behind the counter says "um, all drinks are healthy" in a snobbish way. My sister looks at her and goes "UM, not soda." and the girl looks at my sis like she Doesn't know anything. Hahaha!

Haha, I don't think there's a person on this earth who doesn't get easily distracted. I never could do online classes while I was in college. I did like, 2, I think, and it took all my willpower to sit down at a computer for 45 minutes straight without doing any of the things you mentioned! You are not alone, girl!

Haha, I totally know what you mean about feeling like you need to act a certain way if you have a certain article of clothes on. I feel that way whenever I have my gym clothes on and go out to lunch right after working out- gotta make it healthy or people will judge me! Although i know probably no one really cares :)
