Dreading Tomorrow (updated)
I'm new to this site. I found it while googling 'chronic procrastination' I didn't think it was an actual term for a mental problem. Anyway, I've been on march break, and I'm really P.O.d with myself right now. You see, I thought before that I was procrastinating due to family problems, and then I thought that it was because I was just busy with work, but during this march break, I had 10 days off (I worked for a few hours during a couple days, but that doesn't make much of a difference), and accomplished absolutely nothing. I had 2 books to read, 4 assignments, and 1 essay, and I did NOTHING. Now I'm fucked. I've been told to not look at it as all or nothing, but how can I not?! Rather than doing my homework, I watched tv, or surfed on the internet, or cleaned, or went out. It was as if I knew in the back of my mind I had to do it, and I was trying to forget about it at the same time. As if I was trying to make up excuses why not to do it, you know? I'm so overwhelmed, I think I'm going to cry... I fell behind last semester for the same reason (thinking it was family problems), and ended up barely passing 2 courses and failing 1... I don't want this to happen again, I promised myself that it wouldn't.
But, enough of that pity party. Either way, I've found that this site has helped me out with dealing with future tasks (I wrote down the ten ways to help stop procrastination), and the more and more I read about chronic procrastination, I can see that I fit the bill.
One of my friends told me to not label myself as a procrastinator, perhaps this could help some people? As in thinking positively, or do you do this already?
UPDATE: I stayed home today, so hopefull I'll get at least 2 things done.
