Procrastinating isn't easy.

Instead of working on my essay for my College Life class, I'm blogging and watching Dexter online. I love writing essays anyways, so this isn't me procrastinating or anything... maybe.

I feel like me procrastinating is becoming a huge issue and a bad habit. Back in high school, I wouldn't put off things as much as I'm doing now. I don't really do much outside of school; I work two jobs and I also do this activity called Big Brother, Big Sister twice a week after my classes end, but that doesn't really get in the way of anything considering I only do it for about an hour. Other than that and working, I'm either at home or hanging with friends.

But it's like, when one of my teachers assign work of any kind, I think I have all the time in the world to do it. For example, my English teacher will assign an essay three weeks before it's due and I will start on it the night before. I've done this twice, but I have received passing grades for both times. I'm scared the next time won't be a very good grade. I just need to stop procrastinating...

I'll start tomorrow.

Time flies and lessons learned.

It doesn't even feel like I've graduated five months ago. It's going to be Thanksgiving soon, then Christmas and in two months, it'll be 2014. Then it'll be my brothers turn to graduate! Time flies by so quickly. Sometimes I wish it would go by a little slower. I just can't believe it. It's like, when you're in a class you dislike, you want to get out of there as soon as possible. You want time to go by faster. But when you're with a friend or doing something you actually enjoy, you never want it to end.

I've been thinking lately how cool it would be to just go back in time. There are a few things I would love to change and do differently. But I don't regret anything I've done in the past. No regrets, just lessons learned. I've also learned that hiding how you really feel and trying to make everyone happy doesn't make you nice, it just makes you a liar. Don't be someone you aren't just to impress people.

I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm very thankful for everything... and it's not even Thanksgiving yet. ;)
