I Procrastinate

    I feel as though this year was difficult

    for me academically. Not just because I procrastinated, but because I was so depressed that I couldn't motivate myself to want to do my work. I feel like that was worse than simply being too lazy to do your work. I was so disappointed in myself but that only made my depression...

    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 am ridiculously bad at getting work done

    before the night before (if that makes any sort of sense?). It's terrible really, I can't revise for exams, I never spend time on homework, I just can't concentrate unless I'm under a lot of pressure- and even then it sometimes gets the better of me and just stresses me out...

    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 find myself doing it

    even though I know I'm doing it, I mostly procrastinate when I feel like drawing, or when I wanna play my Pokémon game. I will probably procrastinate today because I know I have a watercolor painting to do that I'm afraid to mess up on
