Easily distracted or how I can never resist a google challenge

Bro is right about one thing, trying to get any work done at home can be near impossible at times. At least he is only home on weekends! I try to keep regular study hours, or as regular as I can make them, but despite my best intentions (and we all know where those lead...), I keep getting sucked into doing other things, usually some internet errands for my parents. Today, about half an hour before I wanted to start studying, my mother asked me to prepare a health insurance claim. Ever since it become possible to submit those via internet, it has somehow become my task to scan all the relevant documentation first and then work through the online questionnaire to submit the whole thing. After that, and this one is sort of my fault, my father told me how he couldn't find out the sampling rate at which ADR (astra digital radio) is being broadcast. I couldn't believe it and promptly did some googling of my own just to prove that you could very well find out ;-) By the time I had done all that and had located some books my father's physiotherapist was interested in borrowing, it was already lunchtime. It's been going like that for the last two weeks. Between my parents having a hundred and one errand they need run and me being so easy to distract, it's a miracle I ever get any work done.

At least I got a 77 on that multiple choice quiz and made some solid study progress this afternoon. Probably because I have the house to myself for a change and only the internet around as a distraction.
