Hi guys! I'm a college-anon in his first year. Im working towards my Asso. in Computer Science. I'm in my first semester so I'm taking all the boring pre-reqs. Right now I have Ethics, Intro to Writing, and Intro to Computers. I'm great in Intro to Computers, Ethics is simple enough, but writing seems to be my trouble area. It's the homework, I sit down to do it and I keep getting bored with it and drifting off or doing something else entirely. I'm just not interested. So I was wondering what some of you do when you have trouble with your assignments? I'm thinking about scoring some Adderall.

I skip them or do them at last moment, as they must be done, right. I never do things 100% perfectly, as I simply don't care enough.

Chunk them into sufferable pieces, schedule them so that you have finished them by the appointed deadline, and then just follow your schedule. It's painful while you're doing it, but as soon as you're finished with the day's scheduled chunk you can go away happy

Same here. Though sometimes papers will end up getting 100% for whatever reason.

OP: Don't get Adderall. Follow >>3's advice. Get into a steady routine that will aid you when you've got more difficult shit to swallow.

This is because nobody (aside from the creepy writing/English professors and TA's) has time to read hundreds of student papers. As long as they look long, are formatted correctly, and contain a good amount of references then you're usually good to go.
