    Yes, so it takes me forever to finish.

    doing. anything. So instead of doing anything, I do a bit of everything and nothing gets done. Not always. More later. :)

    Yes, I do. I procrastinate.

    A lot actually. I think it already became a habit of mine. Lol just kidding. Idk, I try not to but I always end up procrastinating. Especially if it's school related. Cramming and procrastinating are the things I'm good at when it's about school stuff.

    I was originally planning on starting a 100 day

    song challenge on EP on the first day of winter, but I guess i'll do it in the spring instead. I really do need to continue searching for good songs to add. So I can hopefully get it started soon.

    When I was in school I would always start the

    semester saying that I was going to study for this many hours this day and so on. Never happens. Why do I always procrastinate? I can never force myself to do anything until the last minute. What's wrong with me? How can I improve?

    I have realized that procrastination has a lot

    to do with momentum. If you start to view it as small simple steps, then you will be able to complete more and more tasks. It creates a snowball effect that makes you want to keep on working. This also happens vice versa so the more you procrastinate the harder it is to stop...
