Breaking Bad Habits
The two rules of procrastination:
1) Do it today.
2) Tomorrow will be today tomorrow.
So, I've made it through another week of school. It's already midterm point...for the first quarter; things are moving right along. I would update more frequently, but I virtually have no life! lol Although I'm doing well in my classes, I have an issue with procrastination. OMG, I would like to nip this in the bud now, but I just can't seem to. All week I'm in class and when you factor in the commute my days are pretty full. I get up before dawn, make it home around 3:30 or 4:00, eat dinner, read over material, and go to bed. The weekend is an entirely different story. My Saturdays go something like this:
~Think to self *I have a lot of time to study today*
~Think about what a peaceful day it is
~Contemplate watching a movie
~Listen to music online (to help me study)
~Listen to every related song suggested (imeem)
~Check Facebook again
~Check a couple of messageboards
~Catch up on blogs :)
~Clean the house (this allows for a more conducive study environment right?)
~Check online sites one more time
~Turn on the radio
~Think about how exhausted I am
~Go to bed
~Repeat on Sunday
LOL! So as you see, I accomplish NOTHING on the weekend. It's like I work best under pressure. For instance, I have never been able to type a paper ahead of time. Do any of you procrastinate on a regular basis? How can one break this habit?
