49:30@skyerocket:do u suggest coding during productive free-time bc Im not allowed to use social media bc of parental controls.
50:40@cerberus:I'm getting late into high school and I'm still having trouble with managing and developing my extracurriculars, do you have any advice for that?
52:14@elena:My advice is to get rid of whatever you have the instinct to do when you sit down to work such as go on social media. Just delete the app(s)! It takes a little bit of "withdrawal" and (diligence of saying no if it's something you can't delete) but I'm so much more productive. Now I don't even miss the apps I deleted!
