All the time. all the time. It makes me wonder about my potential value as a prospective employee who costs more than I produce I need to get my act together before grad school. gad zeuks
Although there are some miraculous things that have happened. Staying up all night playing a game, taking a 7am chemistry final, and acing it. getting a 98% percentile PSAT in highschool after 48 hours of wakefulness and grievous poly-intoxication. etc. But I cannot always rely on good fortune. I need to 'get real'. With my languorous indolence and listless apathy, my lack of willpower and self-discipline, I am terrified of failing in life, at least financially. I am already in a dire financial situation from medical stuff. Ill need loans for grad school.
But RPGs are the least of many reasons for my current predicament.
It is a problem that I have never faced any serious consequences for a noncommittal attitude towards school. but then again, chemistry and psats are childrens toys. For some classes (molecular cell, orgo, p-chem) I had to literally compromise my physical health and mental well-being to get As. I had to do this Mary Poppins thing where I told myself
"now now Jane and Michael, studying for your finals can be a most delightful application! We simply have to make it a game!"
