    Self Control

    I feel so bad about myself for not having enough self control to do what I need to do. For the past few weeks, I have been spending more and more time watching TV and doing random BS instead of doing my work. The work itself is challenging, and I often find myself avoiding it...

    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...

    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...
