Holy 5hit, Did I really miss 3 Blog Posts?

The last couple of weeks has been extremely tough. At least that’s what I tell myself. The truth of the matter is it is mainly time. I just do not have enough time. I have just enough time to do the things I have to do and that is about it. Everyone always makes excuses. I try not to do that, but it is inevitable. I wake up, usually by 0600, shower, make my lunch and I am in work by 0700. I am home by 1600 (4 pm), start to get dinner ready, play with my dogs for a bit, play with my 2 year old, yell at the 14 year old and hug the 11 year old. Then it is dinner, cleaning up, bath time, bed time then finally by 2100 (9 pm) it is my time….to do homework.

I’ve always procrastinated when it came to writing papers and recording a lot of the research. It has always helped me to do things like bookmark pages, highlight , etc. I always do my best work, when I can just start writing, look up some of the information I have read and recorded, then get to the point. Doing all of the research stuff beforehand without typing anything other than the introduction has only caused me to then get overwhelmed.

Doing an outline though is what I have done ever since I was in middle school. By middle school, I am talking about when the Original Jurassic Park came out 28 years ago. So I am there right now, after six weeks. The paper itself will be fine, I know it. The work leading up to it is what causes the problems and the lateness. I just wish I had more time.
