Procrastinators Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from chronic procrastination.

Glad to hear that I am not the only one.

Hi I am 20 and been procrastinating on my Education since High
School. I went to 2 different high schools and graduated from a
charter H.S. when I was 18 and got my H.S. Diploma, not a GED.

Then I went to work right after H.S. since my folks asked rent
from me. I worked at MCDs, Then in Macy's, took basic English and
blueprint construction 101 at my community college at the same time.
Had dropped out of geometry class because I was just not doing the
HW. During this time, I saw that I was getting no where and decided
to join the navy. My Ma' freaked out because she brought me from
another country not to join a military. I respected that and didn't
go to swear in the second time. I hated working in retail, and my
friend helped me get a job as a Security Guard, which at one point or
another I hated even more. All these jobs I held down pretty well.

Between joining the signing up for the navy and working at the
security job, I figured out what I wanted as my profession field:

Well since my CC was not offering any classes in that field, I
decided to take a course on line from Penn Foster. They've been
great, but I just been procrastinating for the longest time ever.
Last April I started working in HVAC business and long hours, I am at
my computer around 1900 after a meal and a shower. And at that point
I am beat and unmotivated to study. But I have the weekends off.

Penn foster is giving me till April 18th to finish the
class and I am only about 15% done with it. Chances are against me
big time, but I am gonna retake the course if that is what it takes.
I just want to be able to study without avoiding it, that is why I am

Please give me your comments, opinions, or advice on what I should


Thanks guys. I will do my

Thanks guys. I will do my best to contribute to this forums as well.


Right now though, I will try and discipline myself to study day after day, until I brake myself in and won't resist or get used to it. 


Hi husband is an electrician and really enjoys the work and the people he gets to meet.  He also makes enough of an income to support me and our two I bet your Ma is happy with your decision!

Jo is right, you will find everyone here very supportive!  It is so great to have somewhere to be totally honest with yourself and get positive feedback for it. 

I find everyone's quotes to be very inspirational...there are some that seem to be tailormade for me...I hope you find some do the same for you!

You are definitely not the only one, and you will find support here.  I like this comment that you made: ' I am gonna retake the course if that is what it takes'.   We'll be with you as you complete the course!
