    I Need to Clean My Apartmen...

    I need to clean my apartment, donate/sell a bunch of things taking up space in my home, get my finances in order, etc.  I just don't have the energy to get started most of the time.

    Time To Wake Up..

    I'm not sure what's happened to me. Somewhere along the line, I lost my footing..and have been stumbling, aimlessly, my way through life the last few years. I stopped dreaming. I settled. If I think about it, I think this is the core of my present day unhappiness. Now, I am...

    So Much to Do....

    I do wish I was more motivated - it seems that instead of getting more motivated as I get older, I get less motivated.  Not to be too hard on myself, I have been going through a rather rough time for the last couple of years and this year has probably been the worst so far...

    If you work hard enough

    and don't lose sight of your dreams they will come true, but most people usually give up on this because they deem it as "impossible". Nothing is impossible. You just have to learn to take the step forward and never look back. Times may be rough, and there will be moments in...

    v=9z4Kft47kBM ^^^^^^^^^^ this is what my coaches play for everyone in our gym during tumbling and cheer, It helps 110% because it's just so motivating, our practices without it is just horrible, we drop stunts, bail on tumbling, because we have no motivation,

    It's Confusing

    It's strange.  I have goals and things I'd like to do, but I'm always drawn away from them.  I make straight A's in school, but outside of that, I don't really do much.   When I get home, I always tell myself I should play my bass or write or do something...

    Like the Logo Says.

    I really just don't have the motivation to do much at all. Basic "I need to do these things to survive comfortably" tasks are about all I feel like managing. I don't like going to work, I can't stand going to classes, even getting out of bed is a hassle some days. It's...
