    Why do you want to see that?

    Just like how people criticize music.

    Oh my, thank you! I'm definitely going to do this. I've never known how to go about doing any budgeting but that's mainly because I'm lazy.

    I always put set deadlines but then also push them off. I know I need to get better at forcing myself to stick to deadlines. I really like the smaller pieces because if I know that I only have a small portion of work to do than I'm more likely to do it. I'm going to try to implement that with further papers and assignments!

    Set a schedule for yourself. And be a tough cookie and stick to it.
    If I could fool myself that would be the best thing ever but in the back of my mind I'm like, well, that's not the actual due date so I can wait a few more days.

    I need to work on that tough cookie act because that is what my real downfall is at. I'm much too lenient on myself.

    i.e tonight I'm doing a paper that's due tomorrow and right now it's 14 minutes until 12 am. Never again, I say, never again.

    Agreed, people are stubborn. There is a big difference between needing someone and wanting someone, they will find that out especially if/when they do enter a relationship. I'm starting to see that it is just an excuse for a more pressing underlying problem. I just hope that they can get that confidence other ways into seeking out another individual specifically for that reason.

    Those all sound good. Sometimes I listen to really aggressive music but I'm not sure if that's helping or aiding. Aha. I think I might try to read and see if that helps take my mind off of things. I can't hang out with my friends when I'm angry because I usually snap at them. Sometimes it works but I'd rather not take that risk. I'm far too lazy for working out.

    Thanks for sharing!
