So do you often loose track of time? say you'll play a game for an hour then study but its been 5 hours now? maybe always watching the clock?

for me it's mixed. if I have to be somewhere important or need to do something at a certain time I'm always early. other times I'll play a game all day long and not notice the time. or I'll be watching a cat video and glance at the clock to see that I've been watching them for 3 hours . even with anime.

do you find your self in a pickle like me or is it something different?

yeah it got pretty bad, I even have a few co workers who watched it so it's kinda a nerd-fest the worst part is season 4 was almost done when I finished the 3rd so I marathon-ed through that too. I use to only do that with anime series. when I watched hayate the combat butler I believe it took me 4 days to watch seasons 1 and 2..... I've realized I have a problem

If I have to be somewhere I'll be there early.
If I have nothing to do, which is most of the time considering it's the summer holidays, I'll watch anime, tv, play games, sleep, eat. Oh god, when I type it out it makes me realize how lazy I am -_- Meh I'll enjoy my teenage years while I still have them...

I try to reach school on time, but if I am late, I reach 10 mins late, and if I am early, I am 10 mins early than the school time, also i try to sleep at 10:30 PM, but end up sleeping at 11:15 PM.

I find that time management gets the worst when you have kids. You try to achieve so much in the remaining time after they go to bed and before exhaustion claims you... but never works out

I have terrible time management. It's actually one of the biggest problems I have to deal with in my life.

I've had pretty bad insomnia for as long as I can remember, and knowing I have to be up early means usually having to prepare 2-3 days in advance to get my sleeping pattern sorted (or staying awake for 2 days straight), and even then I'm guaranteed to struggle, laying in bed for 5 hours wide awake.

Gaming plays a huge part in this, but also TV and nights out drinking do too. I always intend to spend a couple of hours tops but spend the rest of the day/night there unless interrupted. I could watch a TV season from start to end in one day if I was enjoying it, or start another match on a game knowing full well I have to dish up my food in the next 10 minutes, or stay out in town until kick out time on a work night.

When it comes to getting ready to leave my house I have to convince myself to set off 10 minutes earlier knowing full well I will probably be 5-10 minutes late, regardless of how much time I have to prepare.

Even during work I have to sit facing the clock on my breaks which means facing away from the TV just so I can make sure I don't overstep my 15 or 30 minute breaks, and as for taking breaks in the first place, I often have to skip out on my breaks altogether when I realise I haven't moved from my desk in over 5 hours which is actually against work policy. When I finally go or am forced to go for my dinner break it's usually at the worst possible time of the day, where workload gets crazy busy.

I always convince myself there's one more thing I have time to do...

If there's somewhere I' supposed to be, I usually try to be early.

If I have a day to myself and should get some work done, I make a mental plan of events "I'm going to accomplish this, this, and this today."

Doesn't always happen. I'll tell myself. "I'll just play a game or two to wake myself up", ends up being more...

Or I'll find myself deliberately doing useless things to try and avoid starting a big assignment out of some weird anxiety.

Either way I suck at time management.
