I've never actually blogged in a consistent manner..but I can give it a try...hello to any readers :)
As a University student, I sometimes look around at all the other successful, hard working students and wonder why it is that I have so much trouble. In high school, I was an excellent student, always finished all of my work, and was close to a lot of my teachers. Now, as a third year college student, I still don't seem to have it all together. There are days when I just want to lay in bed all day, days when the thought of doing any kind of homework seems overwhelming, and days when going to class is just too hard. As a student who never had to study, I still haven't quite got the hang of it. I feel like at this point, I should have it all together; I should be motivated and hard working and have no trouble making myself stay on task, but too often I find myself reading or messing around online when I should be working. I stay up all night when I have to get up early for class the next morning. I procrastinate to the extent that I barely finish my homework or projects on time. Even in class, I have a hard time not getting distracted and doing something else, especially if it is a hard class or an uninteresting one.
Do other people have these troubles? Is it only me who finds getting out and doing such simple things overwhelming and hard? How do the other students who spend hours every night on their work do it? How do other writers open up that word document every night and just write? And why haven't I figured out how to do it yet? More than anything I want to be a good student. So why do I constantly find it so difficult, and why can't I overcome that?
