I have been procrastinating like a boss. As a matter of fact, I am a procrastinator – the queen of my region. I wouldn’t even say it is with everything. Just some things. Things that involve time and patience as well as possibly being secluded. The last one is the kicker. Also, something to be discussed at a later date.
I’m not proud of this label but I do recognize it. Matter of fact, every week I re-organize my schedule as well as my daily/weekly routine, in hopes that one will work. It’s a process I have been repeating for quite some time and am determined to not give up on.

Sometimes, I feel like it is a mixture of my sign (Gemini), being a twin and how I grew up. Growing up I was used to leaving school to play and hang out with friends. At this age, I didn’t know I would be working so much after clocking out. I’m talking about adulting, running errands, setting up and going to appointments, my weekly routine and so much more. It can be exhausting and hectic, but that’s including a somewhat crazy social life. I can see now why people become more homebodies as they get older.
I enjoy and prefer being around others as well as eating with others. Conversation, in general, is what I love to be a part of. Sure, I have preferred topics and things to discuss but anyone can be moved to say something of passion, self-worth, goals or whatever and I’d be all ears. Bouncing ideas, learning and really just being human. Think of it is like a break from your handheld, lol.
So to wrap this up, the goal is to cut back on my social life to provide me more time. I won’t procrastinate as much if I just set plans in my schedule for me. I just need to leave that young minded idea that there is a social requirement where it belongs, in my past. It’s going to suck for what I am used to but I know it’ll pay off.
Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.

So I am putting this here. As a reminder of my struggles as a procrastinator.
