    Intelligent No More

    Alas, my laziness has caught up to my intelligence.  When I was young, I was sharp, smart, knowledgeable, and mentally nimble.  Heck I would even say I was wise.   But now that I am almost 40,  after years and years of laziness and neglect...

    Well Here Goes.

    Well, I'm currently in a 6th form college studying. I passed my GCSEs very easily getting 2 A*, 3 A, 1 B and 5 Cs. I went into three subjects I excelled at at GCSEs (Maths, Physics and Chemistry) and I've kept my usual GCSE working habits. Apart from now I seem to be getting...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    *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...
