    Me Too

    I am so bad about dropping something once I realize I am not perfect at it right away. Sewing, cooking, scrapbooking, writing are all things I've picked up and become discouraged after starting. I know it takes practice, but it's so hard for me to keep going when I constantly...

    Gah, I'm such a procrastinator, which is the worst thing of all!!! And I can never seem to finish anything. I started doing my bachelors in computing systems and I just could not go through with it. I've also started countless websites and fansites that I've never worked on...

    Why Is That?

    I hardly ever finish anything! Other than work (which is under duress and not much of a choice) I can't really think of anything I have ever finished. Like last year I decided to try crafty things in an effort to spend less time at my PC at night (you can tell it worked right...

    Two Clay Figurines

    I dropped out of school, three times now. Almost all of my art projects I have started are unfinished. I've started writing many stories, and spent hours upon hours world-building for fiction. I've been meaning to clean my room for years. All in all, my life's accomplishments...

    Oh This Is So True.

    This website is a great example. I currently have 45 tabs open, all different things I am planning to do, to do with this website. I will be lucky if I do half. So next time I log-on I will need to complete these things plus new things I will start and so the cycle continues.

    I Probably Stop When Finished 7/8

    It's been this way all my life. If I wanted to buy a candy bar as a child I would go to the counter, turn around a few stops before, run back to my Mum and tell her I don't dare to. I always loved new food products, like cereals. I would open them, eat a few spoons of it, take...

    I will start a project that I am really interested in, but once I get going, I either get bored or I just don't like the results. If I like how it is turning out, I usually finish whatever it is.

    I have grown up in a family that never encouraged the "process" but only the result. They taught me to judge myself only by result and not the feeling, not the fun in process. They always told me that I need to work hard, and that everybody hate what they do, but they do it...

    I've got lots of things unfinished - books I've never finished, movies I've never got around to watching, stories I've started writing, etc. Sometimes, I start something and then forget about it or get distracted by something else.
