    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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 in school I had all A's and B's. When the teachers assign projects I like to get them done as quick as I can. But when it comes to cleaning my room or making my bed I take forever Like I'll clean one part of my room, take a break and then three days later maybe start again...

    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 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.
