    SADNESS! It's 12:05 am

    where I'm at, and I have to analyze three poems, research another poet, and do my social studies homework, and look for my French dictionary. Why do I do this to myself? And on top of all that, I have a cold. I hate colds the most, because it's so miserable! Bleh. So, now I go...

    And it's ruining my life.

    I would rather run from problems and challenges so I don't have to face them. I have failed a lot, which causes and perpetuates this. I can't bring myself to try.

    I'm Only Writing This Because I'm Putting Off Doing Important Stuff

    What causes procrastination? I think it is fear.  Fear that I won't be able to complete the task - or do it well enough.  Fear that it may involve me getting my hands dirty or have repercussions. Fear that it may attract criticism.  Fear that it may turn...

    This is the reason I'm stressing right now.

    I always put things off like ok I'll just do it later. Now it has caught up with me, my children and I are suffering because of my stupid choices

    I've been using a book called "The Now Habit"

    which has in it a systematic programme for beating procrastination, and when I first mentioned it I said I'd keep interested people posted on how it's going. Well, I've worked through a number of stages of the programme now, and it's continuing to impress me. One of the latest...

    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. >.<

    There are things that urgently need to be done,

    and I'm running out of time. So much pressure, I end up leaving things to the last minute. Felt like I wasted another day and precious time.

    Alright, it's 12 AM and I have a research paper

    rough draft (complete with note cards and highlighted printouts) due tomorrow. I'll be staying up late to get it done, even though I gotta wake up at 6 AM. Procrastinating is terrible and I really ought to break the habit, 'cause it's definitely not worth the pain and stress...

    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 wish I wasn't such a procrastinator,

    but I tend to avoid doing the unpleasant things and do what I'd rather do. However to keep from making myself sound like I focus on the negative because I don't, I will add that there's a lot positive changes that I've been making in the last year or two so I have faith that I...

    When sent back to redo a cleaning assignment

    I don't even know how,

    but somehow, someway, I usually came from doing my homework, to looking looking up how to understand your pet better, and how to fix your microwave. I don't even have a pet. Something's wrong with me.
