Hi, I know someone out there has gone through my problem already or at least something similar, so i need some advice. I'm a senior in high school, next year I start college. I'm not and never have been top of any class. I lack the discipline to get my studying done, and to do my homework also. I'm not dumb, I'm actually incredibly smart, and as long as I study I have always been able to get high A's on every test, sometimes I barely even need to do that and I still get the good grades. The problem though is that I can never make myself do it, I know I need to study, but I just can't keep myself motivated to do the studying or the homework. I'll get a planner and I can't get into the habit of using it, I'll make a list of things to do and I'll be daunted by it, it seems that the only way i've ever been able to make myself do the work is if I go somewhere like the library and do it but from my house the nearest bus station is an hour walk, my school library closes after school is over and even if I do go to the public library its in a very rough part of town (downtown Tucson, AZ...gangster/neonazi/druggy/crazy-homeless-people central). So my request is that somebody offer any form of advice that could help me, I need to know how someone else did it, because all of the conventional ways that i've tried don't work. I'm very interested in learning, but lazy. I love knowing things, but hate the process of it unless I'm in class. I want to go to some form of graduate education after college, which means I need a really good technique...please and thank you for your help!
