The above title states my vice and my virtue. Sadly, one does not work without the other. Procrastination seems to be a horrible habit I developed after my grandmother stopped helping me with my homework, threatening with her usual line, “You will become a trash collector if you don’t study well!” After I stopped having a nervous fit of crying, I sat down and finished my homework. Back then, I was pretty good in school. Then again, this was in 1st and 2nd grade.
These days, I am just not at all motivated to get anything done, or to get off the internet for that matter. I procrastinate, procrastinate, procrastinate until my time runs out and I, habitually, have my little nervous I-can’t-do-this-so-I’ll-just-cry-awhile fit, and then get down to doing my work. Eventually, I DO get things done on time, except I never learn from my mistakes and try to schedule my time better next time.
Now, onto motivation. Motivation is something I rarely have, but when I do have it, boy, do I get things DONE. Yesterday, I was motivated to be active once more on my online blogs, thus the three entries yesterday, the 5 photos uploaded onto my flickr, and my posting of a fanfiction on a website. Another negative to my motivation: I only continue to do something when I see results. I must lose weight to continue losing weight and I must see comments and likes to continue posting. This is a horrible cycle that’s very hard to start in the first place, so I really hope none of you are also stuck in it.
Now, onto reading chapter summaries of Moby Dick, cuz I ain’t readin’ that shit.
