The three P’s. Productivity, prioritizing, and let’s not forget procrastination-who we’re in a love-hate relationship with.
First off, productivity. Thankfully, I’m finally getting more things done, and quicker as well. I’m trying to do as much school work as I can, mainly in preparation (if you could call it that) for a scholarship exam next month on the 13th. Also I have a whole heap of ICAS (I don’t think you have them in America or England, mainly just the Pacific) exams. I’ve got Computer Skills done, and still have Science, Writing, Spelling, English, and Maths to go… Gah. Productivity seems to just means doing school work at the moment. And getting on top of things… ish.
Also, prioritizing. Prioritizing first hit me in the head properly after I read Liam’s post When There Is No Time. Back when I first read it, I wasn’t really sure how to prioritize. I guess, first I took learning German off, because face to feat, I’ve got bigger things to worry about and learn. German’s going to have to wait until Summer break or something like that.
Then, Shim posted her post The Importance of Writing Every Day (well actually she posted this before Liam’s post.), and I realised I had to start writing every day. Why? Read her post.
So, I started trying to juggle writing as well as school work (after Operation S.T.O) and guess what? I managed one day! And then nothing. (Though I blame Shim for that, and Scrivener. :P) Than I wrote around 200 words in a word war with her, then got stuck in doing some character development. (YAY! FINALLY! :D)
Then something my mum said, made me realise, I wasn’t really prioritizing properly. As much as writing every day was really really really, ever so important, that scholarship exam is, currently, even more. (*cringe* I hate saying that. It makes me feel like I’m abandoning writing, for some stupid test.) So I had to put writing every day on hold. Gah!
Which means while I’ve been sort of productive with school work, I (optionally, especially seeing as I want to write) have chosen to procrastinate on writing. But seeing as I chose to not write (*cringe again*)… I guess it’s not really procrastination, eh?
