I like keeping in mind that I'm living the Now, and even if I procrastinate, the time to get stuff done will become Now eventually. Now is the most important time so, what am I going to do Now? With that thought, doing useless things is basically wasting the Now, the one important time that makes up our lives.
Also what the other lain said, do what you like. Lots of people think they're stupid because they found it hard to push themselves through uninteresting topics on school. In reality, noone likes to do stuff they don't like, and doing something you don't like is hard. Pushing yourself through it instead of finding a more enjoyable path is no merit, in my opinion.
For uni, study something you really like and do it in study groups. It's orders of magnitude more enjoyable that way.

Welcome! It's actually a good thread for /feels/, I think.
