Please? I seem to have lost all my willpower and have so far spent my morning looking at pictures of hilarious cats. blush

STOP LOOKING AT CATS AND DO SOME ACADEMIC WORK!

Will that do? grin

I don't think you understand the gravity of the situation sunny, the cats are HILARIOUS

Are you on Firefox? You could download Leechblock and physically block the site for a bit...

What are you meant to be doing? Revision or dissertation?

I'm writing up a research report, I've got all the content sorted, I'm just trying to get it readable.

What I do when I need to concentrate (apart from Leechblock) is set a timer for 25 minutes. I work solidly for 25 minutes, have a short break of 5-10 minutes then do another 25 minutes. It's amazing how quickly stuff gets done.

Good luck smile

Ahh, that's a really good idea. I've tried similar but go for longer periods and I always end up getting distracted. Will give shorted times a go. thanks smile
