Commitment Issues

Hi. *sheepish wave*

If anyone who reads this blog hasn't noticed, I have problems committing to doing things regularly. Like blogging. Hehe...

But that's just one in a long list of things, and I've come to the conclusion that I have a problem. Here are five other topics that seem to indicate my commitment issues.

Writing. It starts, it stops. Just check out my Works in Progress tab for proof. I write 3/4 of a novel; I throw it away. I write a poem; I forget about it. I get up every morning at six and write for an hour; I start sleeping in. It's a vicious and destructive cycle.

Homework. Learning is all fine and dandy, my friend, but why must school follow me home? There's a separation of Church and State and I feel like that should also apply to school and home... just putting that out there.
All jokes aside, homework is very important and I try my best to do my work and maintain my position at the top of my class. I just can't seem to do it... how do I say this... in a timely manner? I finish essays I've had for weeks at two a.m. the day they're due. I have difficulty setting aside time daily to work on assignments bits at a time.

Pen pals. If any of my lovely old pen pal friends still read this blog, bless you. You put up with a lot, poor souls. Between me putting off writing your letters regularly and forgetting birthdays and even whose turn it is to write, it's amazing you've stuck around this long. I'm really a terrible person.

Career. I do everything possible to avoid the following question, including hiding, fake phone call interruptions, and feigning deafness. "What are you going to do when you finish high school?"


I DON'T KNOW. (Why is that the number one question to ask teenagers? Who actually enjoys answering this question?) The reason I "accidentally" knocked over a stack of books to evade your question, Aunt Kara, is because I can't seem to commit to a career path. I can't decide on what I want to do. There's so many options and what if I pick the wrong one ahhhhhhhhhhhh

Books. I prefer a standalone novel over a book series. Why? Because if I read that first book, I feel like I have to read all the others and that's just too much obligation. I started Cinder freshman year and I'm just now finishing Winter as soon-to-be-senior because I couldn't make up my mind about continuing the series.

So, indecisiveness, commitment issues, a preference for naps over facing the things that need to get done... call it what you will. But I promise I will do my best this summer to blog and interact with you peeps on a regular basis. I'm back to stay... again.

The Past Few Months in Fuzzy Pictures

When your good camera is broken but you still like taking pictures....

Smol plants


Late nights studying in burrito of blankets

Smuggling cats

Being sent to get toothpaste in the store... Returning with plants instead.
