    Don't Go to Sleep Until 4-6am, Sleep Until 3pm

    It's retarded, ridiculous, and frustrating. I'll stay up till all hours of the morning wasting my time away not doing anything productive or meaningful, and then finally go to bed between 3am and 7am and sleep ten hours (waking between 3pm and 5pm). Two things bother me about...

    Self Control

    ~ In Certain Areas of My Life/personality ~

       In love, with certain emotions.... I can come off a bit 'much'. Most of my lack of self control is with food. Especially if I'm depressed about something. I am trying to work on that, & for the most part I think I'm achieving it, but I still have setbacks. That's...

    Emotional Outbursts

    I'm a little too impulsive, too impatient and emotional to have a lot of self control, i like to express emotion and externalise my feelings.

    I get fed up with stuff,

    or anxious, and then I lash out on the people I love and it makes me feel so horrible. I never want to hurt people, especially people I care about so much. I say mean things (at least I think they're mean) that I don't want to say, but I get in the heat of the moment and say...

    But Only With Certain Things

    I actually have tremendous self-control with some things that many people have a hard time with. When I was a kid, I could limit myself to one halloween candy per day no problem. If I need to limit myself to one drink because I'm driving or I need to be fresh the...
