Hello, My Name Is Jessica....

And I am a procrastinator. There, I have said it. I've known it for a long time and I've said it before but this is my confession and resolution blog post. So I'll state it plain and simple.

I have this big issue that I need to just face, recognize, and change. I procrastinate and what's worse is that the majority of the time my procrastination stems from getting distracted. I can't seem to stay focused on one thing for too long. This is true in all facets of my life. I can't read just one book at a time. I have to start multiple craft projects because I get bored with the first one. I play World of Warcraft and have 9 toons but I only have 1 at max level. /sigh.... Oh here's another one...I have 9, yes Nine blog post drafts just sitting there in the Draft folder. Fail, fail, fail-diddy Fail, FAIL!!

I don't usually believe in making New Year's Resolutions but my eyes have been opened to the fact that I procrastinate WAY too much. So here is my simple resolution. I resolve to take life one step at a time. My mind is racing with all of the things that I want to do this year, I can think of at least 10 things right off the top of my head. And maybe I will get to them but this year I am really going to try and focus on one goal at a time.

My first goal is going to be getting my driver's license. I'm almost 30, like *almost* as in just a few days from now, 30. And I really struggle with the fact that I don't have a license and haven't for a while. Not only does not having a license make life difficult, but it makes me feel like I'm still a kid that has to be driven around everywhere, and it Sucks. I Hate being stuck at home with no option to just hop in the car and drive somewhere. I am really not a homebody, I would much rather be out doing something. So I feel like a caged monkey sometimes.

I am going to make 2014 different. In 2014 I will do one thing at a time. It is time to feel like I've actually really accomplished something. I always feel good after finishing a project, or a book, or anything really. So this year I plan to accomplish life goals; things that I've wanted to do but have put off. I love checking things off lists so maybe I'll make a list and cross them off as I complete them.

Speaking of lists, I have done some things off my 101 in 1001 list so I'll update that. Then hopefully in the near future I will post an update post and tell you all about what I've done! :) That is a list for another thing at a time, remember?! ;) lol

Your Self-proclaimed Procrastinator,
