I've always been the worst at it. Procrastination. I'll do anything apart from what I'm supposed to be doing. My Uni work. I'm in my second year of a Creative writing degree and started it at the age of 45. I've never been a person who likes studying you can ask all my old teachers at school about that. I hated it, maybe for the fact that when I was at school they never made it fun to learn or maybe, I just wanted to mess around and didn't think it was going to do me any good in my life, or maybe it was the people I hung around with. I suppose the only person I can blame is myself. Just like now and getting my head into my degree, it's never to old to learn something people tell me just like people tell me it's one of the best things I've done for a long time. Life's to short and if I didn't do it then I'd regret it, this is true. I would regret it. Most of my life I've never finished anything properly. I've spent my life skimming through. Not really caring about what the future would bring.

Discipline is what I need to stop the procrastinating. I say to myself all every weekend. I'm going to spend a certain amount of time each day doing my assignments. I'm going to stay in the bedroom and do my work. It's not like it's a really hard degree. Or is it? All I have to do is use my creative and artistic mind and writing what comes into my mind (sometimes not a good thing if you know how my mind works!) But something always distracts me, facebook, twitter, iplayer. I'll do anything rather than do my work. My partner keeps coming upstairs and catching me watching something on youtube or posting something on my social networking sites! I get a disgruntled comment about getting on with my work. He's very focused on his and puts me to shame. You'd think that would push me to work harder but NO it doesn't. Well it does for a while and then I get distracted again. Procrastination. I'll get my stuff done. Another example writing this blog. Procrastination. I could be doing my work or getting my stuff done. At least writing this I'm doing something connected to the course I'm doing and actually writing, not watching Jeremy Kyle or Loose Women (although whilst doing this I'm watching Location Location Location).

Well that's said and done. Now I should get back to my work. After I've made something to eat and put out the laundry and done this and done that! Procrastination! Not good.

Bye for now.
