INTERNET is the reason for my procrastination!!

Post  Maggie on Fri Feb 17, 2012 11:04 pm

I've finally found something to blame. Notice how I didn't say someONE. Here's the story: The past couple days I've challenged myself to WAY cut down on the amount of internet usage in my life. The results? I'm getting things done.

No, seriously.

GETTING THINGS DONE.

I can't remember the last time I've been so productive and happy. I think I'm learning a lesson. Shocked

Just thought I'd share.

What's new, everyone??

What's new is that you've made everyone feel bad about all the time they spend on the internet procrastinating, so they didn't respond. XD (That's what happened to me, actually. Though I did leave it open with the intention of responding eventually. Just like…the email…*cough* See, the exam snuck up on me, then I had to STUDY, and then there was the paper that I'm currently writing…*flails for more excuses & knows they all suck* Embarassed)

Anyway…not much new. Just classes and things. Revisions are progressing at a snail's crawl, mostly because of the aforementioned test and paper. But I'm finishing the paper tonight, and THEN. Then I get to get back to editing! Very Happy

So, I probably spend way to much time on the internet. I haven't gotten much writing down, though I've looked into getting an agent, though I won't be getting one soon, I've also got a lot of my outlining done, and now have inklings into another story, which I'm slowly following. I've also had a lot of science pilled on my plate, which has caused some havoc, as Radioactivity make no sense to me at all.

Then, I'm trying to read "The Singer of all Songs" and "Battle for Macindaw"

And we just got a fish tank, and will be getting out fish next week.

@Amanda Ooops. Don't feel bad, everyone! It... it wasn't intentional. The feeling-bad. I was just excited that I finally had what sounded like a legitimate reason for never getting things done. Shocked

And now you've responded to my email, and it's MY turn.

@Taylor Wow. That's a LOT! I especially feel sorry for you about the science bit. But The Singer of all Songs is wonderful -- or at least, I think so. =)

Dang, I need to not forget of the possible existence of new posts. I don't get emails telling me someone's replied on these! *is so lazy* Razz

I've actually found myself staring at the screen a lot recently, not having anything to do on the internet. It's almost as if there is a correlation between you cutting down on internet time and me suddenly having more time to do non-internet things. It's MIND-BOGGLING. xD

Ahem. Anyway. New things. Well, I just finished Beth Revis's "A Million Suns", and it was awesome. (This only counts as new because my reading pace has slowed a lot lately. That correlates a lot with starting college classes. O.o) Other than that...um...um...Yeah, no, I got nothing.
