I seriously hate boating

I seriously love and hate boating. I am trying to finish my thesis to get a masters degree in engineering, and all I've been doing is watching kayaking videos and longing for the snow to melt. I focus for like 20 minutes, then watch 40 minutes of videos, and repeat. I even started a list of my favorite videos.

Damn this addicting sport!

If the internet had existed when I was going to school I bet I never would have finished. Hang in there!

I use this to maintain some focus.

SelfControl

That's for a Mac. Similar exist for PC.

As you can tell I don't block the Buzz, but quite a few others. Then turn up the tunes and get shit done.

The Self Control App, I think I need it! I was ok before I found the Buzz, now I'm constantly distracted. I even thought about unsubsribing to all my threads, but I just can't get my self to do it! I need some form of self-control either real or cyber...

You can set the time frame and select the websites you can't visit. So I block several for anywhere from three hours to all day.

Digital distraction is bad for work. So I do what I must.

My high paying job as a part time moderator precludes me from blocking the Buzz..
