I Suck getting things done. Why can I not win this battle with procrastination?!

Woke up at 1:30pm, did nothing worth mentioning for 3 hours, and then started to get to work. Less than 30 minutes later, my mind started to wander:

"Hmm, I wonder if [blogger] updated?"
"Hey, there should be a new post on that thread on Chief Delphi!"
"I wonder if anyone is online..."
"I haven't read any webcomics in a while..."
"Oooh, [Person] commented on a photo of me on Facebook?"

I have such a lack of motivation for anything these days. I believe we learned in AP Psychology that this is called avoidance motivation, compared to achievement motivation. I am doing work not because I want to, but because I don't want to fail and I just want an A. I liked it better when I enjoyed learning...

Yesterday I did go to Best Buy, and I did buy SingStar, but it wasn't really the one that I wanted. 80s is pretty fun, but I really wanted SingStar Rocks. I also went to the Party City next year and got some blue hairspray for this weekend...oh yeah, Noelle is jumping on the "FIRST Spirit" bandwagon.

While doing some work this weekend, I realized that I love and hate my music collection, or perhaps the Party Shuffle function. Often, I admire the variety of music that I have and that I could never get bored with all of it, then at other times, I feel as if I'm listening to the same stuff over and over again. Now I want new music, but I can't find anything cool to listen to, nor do I have the time to browse for hours on end like I used to do on weekends.

Awesome! I just realized that I don't have as much APUSH work to do as I thought. Now for all of this English reading and the 80 million vocabulary words to flashcardize...

[Back to Work!]

Hey Gurl...
Don't beat yourself up about it.. your procrastination is genetic.

Take it from one who knows.
