I recently realised that I’ve been slightly neglecting this site without even realising. What used to be a hobby, has now become like an over-read book gathering dust on the bottom shelf. I think it’s now time to wipe off the dust and write another post. Which I am now vowing to do more often.
In the last few months that I haven’t been writing, I’ve been busy doing nothing. Is that even a thing? Is it possible to occupy yourself by achieving nothing? I guess so. But, I do feel as though I am doing just that. Achieving nothing. So, I’m now OFFICIALLY declaring in writing that I’m going to start being more productive. Whether that be ticking something off my 100 page long to-do list, or going outside and venturing into the bright and scary world. I’ve become so used to the same four walls, that Iv’e forgotten how to go outside around actual living people.
I, amongst 90% of teenagers on the internet with no social life, am highly vulnerable to procrastination. It’s like an illness that you just can’t shake. One minute you’ve got your mind completely set on doing something, the next you’re lying on the floor contemplating the meaning of life. It’s as though my brain literally won’t let me do anything BUT nothing. I can wake up with a written list of things to do and achieve not one of them by the end of the day. I’m obviously getting nowhere with this, so I think it’s time to change my approach. One by one, I’m going to change each of the things about myself, or my lifestyle that I don’t like. Starting at the bottom and working my way to the top. Starting to think this is going to be easier said than done, but might as well give it a shot. Starting next week. Or is that procrastinating already?
