I Am Intelligent, But Lazy

    I know I could be so much smarter

    if I just took the time to do the things I say I want to do. It somehow seems as though every time I'm motivated I tell myself not to start homework and studying until I'm at a coffee shop or until I've cleaned my room or until I'm at my boyfriends house. It seems as though...

    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.

    Its difficult. I have a lazy habit of thinking

    too much and not doing anything. Thinking and reading calms my nerves, doing something makes me anxious cause I'm pretty much a perfectionist. Or just talking to people. I sometimes wonder Maybe I have asperger syndrome. I got into the enneagram and MBTI two personality tepung...

    What A Waste!

    I sat and wondered if Leonardo DeVinci never went to "community college", Or something similar, would that've made him any less talented? Absolutely not. My name is Jesse Bauer, I'm 25, and from Old Forge, PA, and I've come to believe if I dissapeared tomorrow, what a waste of...

    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...

    I need help. I am addicted to being lazy.

    I have wonderful friends-- who I don't see because I'd rather stay home. I have an interesting and exciting job-- that I may lose once all this aimless broswinginsteadofworking catches up to me. I have a curious and intelligent mind-- that is slowly becoming dull, because I...

    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...

    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...

    All of my teachers told me that I was one of the smartest kids in their class, but I never did the work, so they couldn't give me good grades. They would say that if only I applied myself I could go so far. Sadly, I rarely applied myself. I spent a lot of time BSing my way...

    Ohohohohohoho~

    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.

    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.

    so I'm third in my class at a 3A high school. That proves that I am smart - academically at least. However, I am a terrible procrastinator. I often wait until what I think is basically the last possible opportunity I will have to get something done before it is due; I have...

    Intelligent No More

    I just finished reading a guys post.

    He said his bad habit was being lazy. When I was a teenager I was told I was lazy. I think most are. I thought I'd outgrown all that. I do, do more than I use to. I've always shunned the thought that I was lazy. Even though it's crept into my mind many a times. I never wanted to...

    I see how hard the generations

    before me have worked and all I see is how unhappy most of them seem to be. Some fool themselves into loving there work and other simply ignore the hard parts of life. They seem to be numb and that is something I don't want to be.

    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...
