No, I'm not going to tell you to stop picking your nose if that's what you're thinking.
But on a scale of bad to worst, how bad is this idea of sharing my bad habits with you? (again, not talking about picking your nose or such)
Anyway, I was thinking that if I write this MAYBE I could actually be more aware of my bad habits, and so would you (if you think you've got any) and work on it. In other words, I'm just making you feel guilty about it.
MASTER OF PROCRASTINATION
Never not guilty of procrastinating...and just "winging" it (sometimes), which makes me think that I'm not sure if I'm really THAT busy or I'm just "THAT" busy because I've procrastinated...*shrugs* oh well.
That's been the story of my life since my high school days----never do my homework at home, but I do it in school 30 minutes before school starts and that's because I copy from my friends especially if it's a math homework (shoutout to my classmates for being responsible for my grades!! HAHA) I was a working student at fifteen, and ballet was life. I've squeezed in as much stuff to do in a day which basically involves dancing, teaching, school, "studying" and procrastinating. Still doing it until now...just like tomorrow, I have a deadline for a column and I haven't even started yet because I'm doing it tomorrow. LOL. (But really, I'm busy...REALLY! ;p)
AM: COFFEE, PM: ALCOHOL
Remember how I told you about my cheap 3-in-1 morning coffee habits last week?....we all know it's fake coffee, and basically just sugar, but I would still have it or would like to have it most mornings. Although my taste buds aren't such a big fan, my nose makes me believe it's good and tells my brain that I do need it because it's yum and I pretty much just feel like dying every morning, so yeah.
I just love the smell of coffee.
What can I say, I'm just my father's daughter. LOL JK, he's NOT an alcoholic but he just likes to drink, and I just like an easy way to go to sleep after a long day, so I Chardonnay or in worse cases, Zubrowka.
CHECKING EMAILS FIRST THING IN THE MORNING
This GIF says it all, and you're welcome.
I don't really have that-guy-your-mom-warned-you-about kinda thing, but I have that-habit-your-mom-warned-you-about kinda thing.
I used to check text messages first thing in the morning when I was still living with my mom back in the Philippines, and that wasn't really a big deal. Now when my mom visits me and catches me doing what I do (not what you think it is) first thing in the morning... she can never be wrong when she said: "I told you so". Yup1 and now my eyes are broken that I have to wear glasses AGAIN. I'm KINDA out of this bad habit, but sometimes I forget especially when I have deadlines to meet (which is basically every Wednesday, and the end of each month..oops! *hi mom*) But I'm trying so hard to not check them, so I lay an extra 10-15 minutes in bed before I get up and grab a glass of water, banana and cup of quite-crappy-coffee...THEN check my emails. I don't really do it the first thing now, coz it comes third if the daydreaming of 10-15 minutes counts. Dunno.
.....And that's me to my self when I do something stupid out of impulsiveness.
Learned my lesson, and kinda out of it now, so YAY! This is another thing I've struggled with growing up, and I didn't pretty much understand why. I could've said "I'll think about it" but I always end up saying YES to almost everything. So then I told myself, "Self, please stop being too excited all the time, and take your time". So I did, and I am now, but then I think if I've taken it too slow I end up procrastinating, which obviously leads us back to square one. When I procrastinate, I rush when I work, and when I work, I get stressed, I'll need coffee and/or alcohol (with chips and junk on the side...I'm eating trash, but did I tell you I was Vegan for 6 months but obvs that was very pretentious) So much for that @#$% cycle of bad habits.
So what now? I'm not the only one who's guilty of all these.
First of all, BE HONEST with your bad habits. (check!) Just did that now, exposing embarrassment of myself to whoever is reading this, so you're welcome.
Find WHAT TRIGGERS these bad habits, once you (or we) have, remove them. Lastly, BE KIND TO YOURSELF. It will take time to break all these bad habits, but make sure you are committed (WOW commitment! LOL) to take them all away, being stubborn and not admitting your bad habits, otherwise will keep holding you back.
So good luck!
