I just bought Pokemon Moon, and I really want to get Overwatch since it’s on sale this weekend, but I know that I’ve been behind on a few assignments. I just want to be able to play some games and not have to worry about completing an assignment or fulfill some sort of commitment.
I shouldn’t complain: I have it really good. I am getting a good education, I have a warm house to live in and enough money to pay for rent, I have a family that supports me, and, I mean, I’m only behind in one class. But that one class makes me feel so behind and so overwhelmed that I don’t want to touch it at all. I procrastinate because I don’t want to do the work, and then I don’t want to do the work because I’ve procrastinated so long on it. It’s become a beast of it’s own that I continue to avoid.
It should be a fun project for me: it’s about mental health (which I’m a very big advocate for), I’ve decided to create a motion graphic/animation piece (which I like doing), but I just can’t get myself motivated enough to actually do any of the work. I think I’ve been stagnant for about two or three weeks now and there are only a few weeks left in the semester.
I have to get the work done, but it’s so hard when there are a million other things I’d rather be doing. I think that’s just life though. Life is full of moments where I’d rather be doing something else, but I have to suck it up and be responsible no matter how enticing Pokemon is.
