    Basically whenever I have a homework assignment

    do I never do it. Even when it's not hard! I just get anxious for no reason and procrastinate. I'll say I have to start at 5. I'm eating dinner at 5, so I switch to 9. I see that it's 9, but I'm watching tv. So I decide that I HAVE to start at midnight. I'm really tired, so i...

    It's ten pm, and I have a french project,

    a science project, more science, and I have to read about a hundred pages. Why do I do this to myself? Does anyone have any ideas to help me stop procrastinating?

    The worst part is that I think I'm just trying

    to avoid things that I'm anxious about, but I'm anxious about them because I haven't taken care of them. All that really gets put off is the feeling of satisfaction for having taken care of what I needed to. It's so stupid. I've always done this, and was diagnosed as ADHD at...

    I've spent this semester making a lot of bad

    (and some good) decisions. At this point, there isn't much time left and I have a whole lot of work to do! I've decided that I'm going to start changing my habits for the better. On weekdays, I usually get to my apartment after classes roughly between 7 and 8, and from there...

    I procrastinate on studying almost daily.

    I just find it so boring. I hate that I do it and need to get better at my studying.

    I need to do are. Most of the time I should be doing something else. I have laundry and I need to wash but I am shopping for new clothes instead. Guess I don't have to wash til I wear my new outfits. I will just get it all done at onetime , it's OK because I am not out of clean...

    I'm continuing my work with the excellent book

    called "The Now Habit". I've reached a stage in it where it's reinforcing the idea that a lot of the time when our self esteem is low, we use the things we are doing as the source of our self esteem. This can create a lot of anxiety and a drive for perfection, which can itself...

    I'm finding it so difficult to get everything

    done. I put off one thing and it seems to cause a chain reaction. There's so much I want to do but when I look at all the things I sigh and say, "I'll start tomorrow." Unfortunately, tomorrow never comes.

    I'm procrastinating right now,

    while writing about procrastinating! I'm not as bad as I used to be though; I generally get things done on time, even if I do leave it till the very last minute.

    It's a terrible habit I know.

    It's gotten me in trouble a few times. I'm always happier when I don't wait to get something done, but it kinda gives me this weird thrill when I'm under pressure.

    Someone said I should journal to find out

    why I procrastinate. I think it's just because I don't want to do the thing... What else is there to say? Why do you procrastinate? Because everything else is better than the work I have to do. Maybe I am in the wrong line of work. Or I'm not utilizing my creative genes...

    Time Optimist

    Someone described me as a time optimist. I don't just put things off till the last minute - when the last minute arrives I try to fit in a few other things too - and inevitably end up late! Anyway sounds more positive than "procrastinator" and has an inbuilt excuse!

    I have a really bad problem with

    procrastination. It's not that I can't do it, it's just that I'm too lazy to do it and have better things to do. I actually wrote an 8 page research paper on procrastination, I did it three days before it was due.

    I always tend to let my phone keep me from

    doing anything. Like, taking a shower. My bed is so comfortable I just keep saying "okay five more minutes. Okay ten. I can do it in an hour. Hold on, I gotta reply to this message" Technology always gets the best of me. >.<

    I always say I will do something

    but I either feel lazy or I just get distracted with other things. Sometimes I want to do something but it takes effort and you need to know where to start.
