Yes & no. Whether it was a project in one of my majors, an assignment I just loved in general, or just something I did for a gen ed, I always focused and gave my 120%. At the beginning of my time as a student, I would spend weekends up in the art studio working on art projects, papers, etc. Wanting to get everything out of the way as soon as possible. The procrastination started my freshman year, but it was only in small amounts. Then as the years went by it became worse & worse, and then last year after I only worked an 8-5 job in the summer and was beginning to suffer from a serious case of senioritis, I started spiraling downhill.Mr. Munchlax: . . . I'm curious, though. When you were motivated, did you enjoy the work you did, find it exciting or satisfying?
Heck yes, more than you can imagine!! Even when procrastinating, I would always make sure I give my best quality work. I may have turned into a bit of a slacker, but I always work my but off when I need to, otherwise I never would've graduated with 3 majors, a minor, and a 3.94 GPAWould you call yourself a perfectionist?
I also have times when I can be a workaholic, I beat myself up all the time whenever I make a mistake, and I often take the phrase "you're your own worst enemy" to a new level
I changed and shifted them around all the time due to my schedules and whatever assignments I needed to work onHave your sleeping and/or eating habits changed?
Thanks for the advice, but the thing is I wanted some help since I just graduated from school and, since I'm now forced to take a year off staying with my parents until I can hopefully get into grad school this fall, I need to figure out how to get my motivation back now more than everWhen procrastination is severe enough, it may be a result of stress (which can initiate a bad cycle). I have even seen procrastination as a symptom in cases of stress-induced depression and anxiety - but that is a very extreme and extended case, and you shouldn't worry that it's the case for you. Either way, if you are at the point of tears over your procrastination/lack of motivation, you might consider speaking to your school's counseling services (I assume, here, that your school does offer such services; they are de rigeur these days)
