Nice to meet you

Well, I'm a procrastinator. This most definitely includes posting on this forum.  The only way I convinced myself to do it was the promise that I wouldn't change signle word, not even a typo. Becuasre then I'd get to editing, and reediting, until it was perfect, or I'd just decide not to post it becuase it wasn't perfect and I couldn't get it to be.

I most definitely deprive myself of sleep, food, all those things. I'm a straight A student...well, I was until today, bit that's an entirely differeny story.

When I get home, on a normal day, I just do who knows what with my time. While thinking about everything I have to do, and how it isn't getting done. I eventually do it somehwere near 2/3 in the morning. I wake up every morning at 4/5. Ebvryone tells me that this isn't healthy, but there really isn't much I can do. I love the list from DA and the other one on the first poage of the sight. It's me. I'm trying to think of an example...Maybe you'll get one later. ;)

I hardly ever start the things I finish unless I have to, and I hate it when people rely on me, yet I can't seem to say no when people ask for help./ I think it's a form of self denial. I always get their things done, also/ I do it to prove to myself that I can...I think it's that other people simplky assume that I will that helps me. That's why I think posting what I plan on doing on this site will help me.

I'm an extremely disorganized writer, but again, if I got to editing, I wouldbn't ever stop. At some point I might rejion this site with a new name becuase I cna't live with the knowledge of how badly i did.

Right, I know that's an awful introduction, but I can't get myslef to do anything more on it right now. Thanks for reading this. press the submit button...(i didn't mange before)


Perfectionism and the tendency to overcommit and underperform . . . yep, that sounds VERY familiar lol.  You've come to the right place.
