I have a Spanish test tomorrow, (Monday), and Math that I’ve been so behind on, it is almost comical.
I finally finished the big chunk of spshulem.com. I haven’t quite finished the mobile version, but it works fine on Androids. It was a fun process, and took some time. You can always email me if you any questions on how it was done. I am working on more responsive and dynamic features.
If I don’t keep myself busy I’m going to fail.
I start college in less than a month. My biggest problem is my fear of not having enough to do. I have lived with a severe case of ADHD my whole life, and prefer not to pop pills, and towards the beginning of my senior year I noticed a pattern; the more I had to do, without being overwhelmed, the more I got done.
What I mean by that is, that if I have a lot of tasks, that I can get done quickly, I can do them, and eventually break the bigger tasks into smaller chunks. But, if I only have 1 task to do, let’s say write an essay, I will procrastinate because I figure I can just do it later, because It’s only a single thing.
It’s like if I wanted to break down a huge wall, the wall is either so big, I simply don’t do it, it’s so small, I put it off until I have to do it, because it isn’t a big enough deal to deal with it now, or It’s a bunch of medium size walls, that I can just take down one by one, over the course of a week.
So rather, I found, that if I have a lot to do, and a due date, I am able to constantly be doing something and get things done.
I’m 17, and I’ve never understood tests. Yes, I’ve never been especially good at them, but that’s not why I dislike them. I dislike them because I don’t understand the point of taking them.
I am currently working on college apps and will return when they are done. Thank you for your patience.
You should share this with your friends:
I moved my programming stuff to Spshulem.com and keeping the more school and entrepreneurial stuff here. If you like reading about me failing at programming, please read my latest post “From 50 to 300″ which you can check out here -> Click me! Please! I hope you look forward to reading my nonsense just as much as I like writing it. Please send me any feedback or questions or comments, I love reading them and I always reply! firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the recent HN semi-fame, I was thinking of writing a post about some of my success and failures in programming. Just to pace these posts out, my first will be about my first project part 1 and my second post about my first project will be about the making of the new version of App List. I am thinking of moving my programming and more tech related post to my newer blog that is more about my computer side, SpShulem.com. I will write a post when this transition is done, which I think a lot of you guys will like more than these posts about me being in High School and Startups help for teens. Thank you for your guys support!
The other day I got emailed by a prospective undergrad at Stanford about recent projects I have been part of, and discussing recent projects he has worked on.
This later turned into a partnership opportunity as we learned each others interest were similar. I needed someone to expedite my progress on App List Pro and he seemed to want to work on a new project.
I always have a lot to do, whether it be writing emails to potential business opportunities, studying for an exam, programming, or preparing lessons for a class, things can get busy quickly. My biggest goal when I set out to do something is to have fit time in to relax and take a break. If I can’t then I need to drop some activity to give me time to do so.
As with this blog, it is hard to keep up with your commitments when they aren’t “going your way.” Some weeks I get a lot of views, and some weeks I get no more than a view visitors. Lately, I’ve been swamped with other personal committments and have found myself putting off my “optional” commitments, such as this blog. That is, things that no one is forcing me to do. Being consistent is one of the most important things one can in creating a blog, and likewise in any personal endeavor. The second customers or consumers suspect a lack of consistency, they tend to feel less confident in your abilities and your work.
