    Ohh that’s the format? Okay, I can dig it... what I should be doing:
    • Meditating
    • Figuring out lunches for the boy for the week
    • Same for breakfasts
    • Getting my clothes ready for the show tonight
    What I’ve done so far:
    • *content NSFW*
    • Goofed off on forum—still ongoing
    • Letting the adorable dog outside—in process.

    after hitting snooze on my alarm for an hour and then rolling around in bed reading twitter for a few more, i finally made it to the library. i have been unable to concentrate (or unable to make myself concentrate) for longer than 5 minutes at once, before either opening OPF or social media. it's only been an hour but i'm already fed up and want to go home.

    why?

    Lecturers striking means I got an extra month to do this assignment. However, this has slowed down my productivity rate dramatically, despite now having 3 deadlines in 8 days just after the New Year. Huh.

    I really should be cleaning my tiny little bedroom so I can fit my new PC later. Going to be ordering one soon. But, instead I'm just dicking around online as always.

    so

    2 of 3 deadlines complete (managed to get them both done in pretty much a week JEEZ)

    this extended deadline is still not getting done because I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I AM DOING and it concerns me greatly. the annoying thing about this assignment is that i can't just squeeze something out and forget about it, because i need to present it in the summer. 11 days to go... will we make it?

    I’ve got some really important paperwork due today but for some reason I’m posting on random game threads on OPF instead. I’m even considering posting the zillion new anime threads but I know I need to buckle down and fill out this paperwork so that I can fax it off today. It’s just tedious to go over all of my medical history and really hard to focus on such depressing stuff like that. Like going over the details of just how screwed up I am is no fun at all but if I don’t do it, things fall apart in my life so... I should get to it. Yay for adulting. I know that I’ll get it done on time. My focus is just non-existent right now and I keep taking breaks. *sigh*

    For three hours (or rather the whole day) I've been procrastinating grading my students' texts. I can't even summarise what I've been doing the whole time, it was too eclectic. But it contained napping for thirty minutes. I'll try for real now. Wish me luck!

    For so many times i need to procrastinate watching an anime because it's state of finished airing is still being procrastinated.
