Study Buddy Struggling with procrastination, maybe we can help each other?

As the title says, I have been struggling with procrastination which means I have a lot of study materials to catch up with.
I'd like someone(or a group of people) who wouldn't mind accompanying me/studying with me in an online room like zoom or discord.
Preferably without music (as I require to watch recorded lectures, but please do feel free to play it for yourself to hear privately).
Webcams are optional (though I won't turn mine on), I have no gender preference either.
We can also chat during break times (eg: after 2 hours of studying, whatever we all agree on) Voice/typed chat are both okay.

We do not have to be studying the same course/degree/topics together! The whole point is to motivate and help each other stay on track!

What I'd like us to do together:
-Join the same online room to virtually study together
-Check in with each other on the day's goals
---->to-do lists
---->especially check if they are realistic eg: Stop each other if we pile up too much workload in 1 hour because we're trying to make up for lost time
---->Have we met our goals? Why or why not? What can we do better? (Without being too critical, if possible)
-Motivate each other
-Check in with each other
---->Are we taking enough breaks? eating well? resting well? Mental health affects physical health, in which affects our ability to focus. Sometimes when we try to make up for "lost time" we become extremely harsh on ourselves. I think it is helpful to have someone else look out for you, especially if we're all in the same position together

What do you guys think? Am I being unrealistic? Do let me know, we can always discuss, try it out and see what works and what doesn't work!

We don't always have to do the above in real time though I do believe doing so will be more effective.
I live in the UTC+8 time zone and my preferred study times are about 8 pm to 12 am on weekdays, though that may vary depending on my school schedule since it's always fluctuating. Since majority of my classes are in the late afternoon to evening, I might be available during 1 pm to 4 pm (depending on my school schedule again).
As for weekends it really depends but I'll try to make time in the afternoon or at least at my usual 8 pm to 12 am.

Update: Heya guys, a group has been created!
Update 2: Nevermind the group is dead, pm me instead!

Hi Mia! Hope you’re having a good day. I’d be interested in becoming a study buddy. I’m Lauren, 21 years old and currently studying to become a midwife in the UK. Love your ideas about checking in with each other whilst studying and motivating each other. Just give me a message if you’d like to set something up :) x

HI Mia.. I would love to be a part of a study buddy group. I am 26 years old . I am preparing for some competitive exam and from past few days my productivity has been low as I feel not much motivated to sit for long hours, alone. So, it would be great to study together and have each other's back , silently :) Do ping me, waiting for your reply.
