I can attest that the quality of my work in my online class has decreased noticeably after the big university library I used to go to closed.
For some reason, I just can't concentrate for shit in my pop's house. I'll try to focus on work, but then find myself binge-watching YouTube videos and playing games. Then when I try to finally focus, I get bad brain fog for some reason. Then if the brain fog lifts and I can finally focus, my family wants or needs my attention for some reason.
Shit I feel sick and dizzy right now for some odd reason.
The library was a guaranteed interruption-free zone, and somehow, it's easier to focus on my work when I can go at my own pace without fear of disruptions and distractions, I had everything I needed in a neat little bag, and not surrounded by clutter, and I could more easily negotiate with my impulsive self like, "Okay, if you get at least 30 minutes of homework done, you can play a game for an hour."
At home, it might be time to play that game for an hour like I earned, but then something family-wise comes up, and I don't get that break, and I get kind of stressed out and derailed.
The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
Buy Matt a Beer
$10.00 of $75.00
Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
Feed Matt a Burrito
$10.00 of $100.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
Finance the Shopping Cart
$10.00 of $200.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
