New here. Saying hello.
I'm a longtime procrastinator. My results have ranged from mild—"I could have done that better if I'd started sooner, oh well,"—to severe—"I failed a class and I hate how my thesis turned out; I'm surprised they let me graduate."
I've been out of school for a few years now but have never really buckled down and found work that I love (and I've never attempted to do what I studied to do). I've been fortuate in that I've found a soon-to-be-spouse who is ridiculously understanding and supportive of my struggles, but I still feel like I've never really started to fully live.
Things I'm in the midst of right now:
- Attempting to stay on track in my freelance creative/tech job
- Attempting to lose weight (I went from pretty damn healthy around this time last year to 25 pounds overweight right now)
- Attempting to still have a social life beyond my significant other (this doesn't feel like a chore but I often don't feel as if I deserve to take the time to do this because it is, in and of itself, a form of procrastination re: the things that I really ought to be doing).
So there's that. Other pertinent information—I've been in and out of therapy for this, been medicated (still am), read many many books and websites on the topic... I genuinely want to improve.
And there's my sob story; now I'm off to attempt to be productive.
