    I used to be a high achiever.

    Back then when I really worked hard for success. Now I suffer from chronic procrastination and it's affecting my grades badly.

    It's A Curse

    when you know that you can do great but you are just too lazy to do it or completely lack the motivation for it but if you are dumb you won't blame yourself. I wish I can find some motivation.

    I can get on the honor roll

    if I really tried, but I'm too lazy. I never get homework done and I do bad cause I'm lazy. I'm smart when it comes to in class work, but out of school sucks.

    I have a creative, intellectually stimulating

    career & I'm very driven. I also love to get out & do fun stuff with my family. But I am the laziest when it comes to maintaining a social life outside of my family, cooking & cleaning. I hate cleaning. I have clothes all over my bedroom floor. I'm as bad as a child except my...

    If I actually applied myself,

    I'd probably be really successful. Some people don't believe me when I say I have such bad grades. I know what I need to do and how to do it. I just don't. I just. Procrastinate, don't care, and lack of motivation to do anything. I'm hoping I can change that but I doubt it'll...

    Intelligent But Lazy, Beware

    These-days I will openly admit to being lazy but to only a few will I openly divulge my belief in the former. It's not that I no longer believe it to be true, it's just that i've been LAZY for sooooo long now that it wouldn't surprise me if people had come to doubt my...

    Intelligent No More

    *nods*

    I'm not sure if it's laziness in the traditional sense, or some sort of psycho-/neurological issue, but I just have no desire or motivation to do work. When I put forth even the tiniest modicum of effort, I tend to excel at whatever I do, but I just hate putting forth that...

    And How

    In classes I enjoy, I consistently get A's. I (apparently) have an above-average IQ (not that that means much since I don't even know which test I was given, and that it was about 15 years ago). When I don't enjoy something though, I put no effort in it. I just can't seem to...

    During the week, I am one of the busiest

    students you'll meet. As a result, I get really good grades. But during the weekend, I am the polar opposite. I just sit at the computer for several hours at a time. It feels great. Lazy weekends are the best solution to busy weeks.

    Passing Grades

    My grades are good, but they're not great both my teachers and parents say that i could do way better than i am. I don't normally aim for an A, I do enough to get a B or C if it's something i don't feel like doing. I know it's not good, but ill probably stop doing it next year.

    I'm the kind of person who could do nearly anything if I put my mind and efforts towards it. But why bother doing something I find tedious and downright boring? I have no regrets about not joining the bandwagon of folks who have a Puritanical attitude towards masochistic work.
