Dear Brain Dumpers,
I know that I can work hard enough to get into the Master’s program I want to get into. I know that my capacity to work hard will increase the more I work hard. It’s like lifting weights. The more you lift the heavier the weights you can lift. I have hope that things will get better. I know that I can have the life I want. I see drumming in my future.
I actually want to talk about time management. I’m not doing well today at all. This day is just going to shit. I finished all of my homework, but I didn’t play drum OR work out like I planned. I can’t keep doing this to myself. I really need to focus up and concentrate on what I need to do. I’m in this mess because I spent so much time goofing off instead of studying. I really don’t want to be here. This is not good. I do have the power to change this and I will change it. I’ve discovered that I need to do a brain dump before every study session and that I should have a clear cut goal for that day. I should practiced the drums earlier today. I need to practice drums earlier in the day so that I’m forced to study with the time I have left in the day. If I study earlier in the day, I’ll think “Oh, I’m just going to skip drumming” and then I’ll goof off.
Good I’m feeling the drive now. I’ve got to stay motivated.
