No, that was me mining the original post for what I believe is the poster's intended result. But you may be right about it only being aimed at herself -- her intension is that she herself get with it in making a greater effort. That certainly seems to me to be what persephonevii had in mind, even though she used the "you" word.
I'm still wondering what the effort is for
, though. Effort to do what, exactly? Did you ever have a teacher tell you, "You should make more of an effort!" She didn't realize you WERE making an effort -- an effort to something other than what she thinks you *should.*
