This is turning into a two weekly blog at the moment this I'd pretty much down to one thing...

procrastination!

  Part of the problem is I've decided that I need to tidy the flat and make it look wonderful and practical for when I become a student. I don't actually hate housework but will find a way to avoid it at all costs right up until the last minute. Take yesterday after the usual farting about on the internet untill it was time to do my four lunch calls that took an hour I had the rest of the day to do some housework and tidying. As I had no distractions whatsoever I sent a text to my friend who I haven't seen for over a year and only just found out she's back in the country. She texted me back to say she's out at a country park on Luton and ask if I wanted to join her. To be honest I had a great time looking around a transport museum, wildlife sanctuary, having coffee and generally catching up with an old friend. I got back and of course the flat was still a mess.

  I did do a last minute clear out and after a few more texts managed to arrange to pick up Steph from the train station and go to the pub with Gareth (known in other blogs as the G man). So I guess I did do some tidying but my big list of things I have to do to the flat hasn't changed too much.

  Anyway today I've dropped some of my books round to my mums, took some rubbish over to the dump, returned library books, got food shopping and made a Lancashire hotpot for tonight which smells lovely and hopefully Steph will be impressed!

  So not all bad and I need to relax as I really do have the rota from hell starting tonight and finishing Sunday night.

Putting off leaving my husband

I have been putting off leaving my husband. I keep hoping something will change. A friend keeps telling me that any day now, he will pull out of this and realize what he is messing up. I love my in-laws so much and that is the only reason I am still here. Can I get them in the divorce? Even they have tried to get him to get some help, medication or whatever to quit being an asshole!

Well, I have thought of leaving for the last 5 years. The last year, I have really been looking for a place to live but every time I think I have found a place, something comes up. This time his grandmother passed away (this week).

I realized that I have procrastinated so much in this decision, and even if I did find a place to live, I am not ready to move out. Damn we have so much stuff and this is a huge house. So, I am making a commitment to go through this stuff, clean out closets, throw away crap and get prepared to MOVE should I decide to do so.

I have been bringing home boxes from work.... its time to start filling those suckers up!

I guess it's not surprising that in a community of procrastinators, it'd be months since the last post. I've certainly fallen off the wagon enough times trying to beat the procrastination habit. Right now, I could really use some support and I was wondering if someone might want to team up with me so we could support each other. Basically we can talk to each other about our long term goals, what we're doing (or not doing) to acheive them, email and check in with each other, remind each other what we're supposed to be doing and why, give encouragement for baby steps and all of that.

A little about me: I am a 26 yo chronic procrastinator from ny living in Korea. I'm trying to lose weight, write a book, beat depression, and get into grad school.

If this sounds like a project you'd be keen to star and you're in somewhat of a similar situation to me, then let me know and we can try to help each other.

Studying

Hello!
My first post here!

For some years i've known i have a problem with studying. It's really a matter of procrastination, because once i start, no one stops me!
I do everything but studying even thought it brings a lot of problems. But it's like a force bigger than me!

It works for me getting out of the house and going to some library. But here in Portugal, the libraries are closed on weekends (some are open saturday morning which doesn't help much) and have strange closing hours like 5 or 6 PM. I like to study at night so that's a big problem. And on weekends that's when we students have more free time to study! I don't get it why we're supposed to study at our homes :/ But that's a different issue.

Anyhow. Anybody with the same procrastination problem with studying? I thought i might find a study buddy or something (online, off course). I even thought of creating a community about that, i don't know...

Thanks for the help in advance

I’ve noticed a couple of people posting here that they’ve procrastinated in looking for a job for quite a while, I believe I can help!  Part of what sucks about finding a job is the process- who wants to go to Monster and search and then have to fill out the same 45-minute form, which basically just duplicates what’s on your resume, for every job you might have an iota of an interest in?  I work for a job board called GOJobs.com, and it’s great because you only have to submit a copy of your resume to apply for jobs there.  I also saw that someone was interested in working from home, so here is a link to our page that lists work-from-home opportunities:

http://gojobs.com/work-from-home-jobs.html

 

Check it out (after procrastinating, of course) and feel free to contact us and/or leave some feedback. DO IT NOW, NOWNOWNOW! (I kid, take your time, we’re not going anywhere). 

 

Thank you for reading, and I hope you all are able to reach your goals in a timely manner J.

Be disgusted in me. I am

My misery level is at an all time high. I fucking hate Toronto. I used to love this place, but I'm miserable.
I get up every day and look for a job. My resume kicks ass, and there are jobs out there...I see them, but nothing's taking.
jobs.ca,monster.ca,hrdc-temp agencies:Drake,AppleOne,Sypherion etc

Staying with my brother and his pet pig...er...girlfriend. They watch alot of TV and smoke alot of bud, which I can't smoke right now because I'm just not under enough intellectual stress. Weed would just be more of a depressant. I feel pretty much the same about television.
I came out here smiling and motivated, with a half assed plan that would keep me moving forward and up. Now I'm bitching on LiveJournal.
I don't like me right now, but I really fucking hate Toronto. It's only 12:48pm and I'm sleepy...I don't know what to do to get things moving. I don't want to be sleepy at noon.

First post

hello - I was looking for communities about self-employment and i found 'doitnow. I've started working towards being self-employed, and I have a real weakness about being self-directed. I'm also having a hard time with my 'sensible mind' not wanting to go with the things that I like to do as a business, so even as my plans about setting up my own business get more realistic, I still keep choosing the thing that makes sense, rather than the thing that would really make me feel satisfied, and be more fun (making $$ from my creativity) as opposed to doing something like computer consulting. I guess I feel like "Well, you don't need TALENT to do computer stuff".

Are there any self-employed people on this community? anybody working towards it? Also, are there any writers, musicians, artists etc who have procrastination issues about their art?
