Procrastination. I feel like this word has been really trending among students these days. They tend to kill so much of their time doing nonsense things on the net world. Some would even nag in their statuses in facebook and tweets in twitter like “OMYG! Haven’t finish doin my school craps” or like “Haven’t started doing even a dot in my 1000-words essay for my major subject” and all the nags and whines, you’ll see it online. Some would rather stay all night long like an owl cooing in the middle of the night playing online games like DOTA, Call of Duty, Conquer and et.al. Only to find out they have to meet lots of deadlines and examinations the next day. Well, I’m not saying it’s bad for the skin to harbor into such habits but one must also find the equilibrium for such matters.
To my surprise, I heard some people started to blame the existence of internet for screen time addiction. Some even blame it for destroying our national parks like “WHATTHEHECK?!!!!” Don’t they think and pay even a tint of gratitude how the ‘internet’ offered a very helping hand in so many ways? For their research, homeworks, whenever they feel like just sitting and be a couch potato instead of doing their school papers and just settle for a copy-paste outcome , you know a mediocre and good-for-nothing kind of work. Now they even got the nerve to point out all the blame to the internet.
I guess you guys should cross the other side of the bridge and maybe ponder to these following bullets and it might ring a bell:
- The only real imperative that comes with social media is to share.
- Social media makes us do things easier but it’s all up to our hands how we handle it with care and not just advantages alone because in the long run, it will bear disadvantages.
- People must have lost the idea of hard work and perseverance that the only way they could finish one thing is through internet
- Recreational activity doesn’t just surround surfing the net world, playing those online games during free time; you could grab a good book from the nearest book store or have a cone of frozen ice cream with a friend.
- We might have forgotten that our parents have successfully finished their entire academic year
- Manage your priorities and do it first before wandering around the net world
- It’s about balance.
Let’s cut-off that stupid blame-game. It’s doesn’t yield to any positive outcomes. It might worsen instead. Maybe you only have disregarded the idea that what causes those hapless circumstances and failures in your life is your lack of responsibility. If you dwell and has been fond of the blame-game for your mishaps, then maybe INTERNET ISN’T REALLY FOR YOU.
