There's something about summertime that has a detrimental effect on my productivity. Maybe it's the indelible heat. Maybe it's having a room all to myself. Maybe it's the fact that there's a pool in my backyard.

Or maybe it's just that my tendency to procrastinate is currently in an ideal environment to flourish. Yeah, probably...

Anyway, I have a CLEP test coming up in less than two weeks, and I need to be more self-motivated. Normally I can corral my brain pretty easily, but lately I've been all over the place!

Focus, she says, focus...

Are you a procrastinator?  What do you do to keep yourself on track?



  1. I am the WORST for procrastinating! I just ride it out and try not to get stressed. If i set mini goals on paper it helps - To do lists. but if something doesnt get done I dont freak out cuz mostly people only stress out over not achieving personal goals and putting unnecessary pressure on themselves ^_^

  2. Lists always sound like a great idea to me, so I make one... and then I lose it. :)
