I need to get my shit together.
I need to do something instead of procrastinating all day. But I can bring myself to do it.
I make schedules, I do every kind of thing to start being more responsible and doing more productive things, but eventually I drop everything and get on the PC. It's like I'm addicted to this. Whenever I try to study, I can't concentrate and end up telling to myself "well, okay, if you can't focus then don't try to study. You won't be able to, anyway".
How can I get used to not being a piece of shit in order to become a better person?
>I need to get my shit together.
What do you want to do? Do you simply want to be productive for the sake of being productive, or do you really have a well-defined goal you want to achieve?
What exactly do you want, OP?
Because I feel like a parasite, doing nothing. And I HAVE to study, I have to. Sooner or later the exams will come, but I keep telling myself "I'll do it later", and I'm tired of that. I've never met someone as lazy as me.
Pretty much this. I used to hang out in the school library to get work done.
Finding a study group can also help a lot (as long as it doesn't just devolve into socializing) because then you also have pressure from being around other people to get shit done.
It may be you just need some serious consequences of fucking around to get a real sense of purpose and motivation. Just wait until you fail out of school and have to work a shitty job for a while, that might light a fire in you. Or you can avail yourself of resources available at your uni to help develop good study habits.
It often helps to break down large study tasks into little pieces. Sit down and do a single assigned problem, or read a single page, or write a single paragraph. Only focus on that single small task. Then move on the next one. Your study plan should break all tasks down as much as possible. "Write term paper" is impossible, but "Search for source of topic X" is doable, e.g..

I think this is what I need, because it's not just about studying that this is about. I'm lazy when it comes to everything. I get so easily distracted or demotivated, I don't know what to do. Perhaps I should go to a psychologist to get some consultancy.
