This year I am promising to NOT do a few things. One of them is to NOT wait until the last minute to do all of my work (both for HOL and school). I have always had a bad habit of playing games online and procrastinating until I have to rush to get things done. I am hoping to change that. In line with that I also promise to NOT pick up a Harry Potter book I wish to re-read less than a week before finals. I did this last semester with the 7th book, having realized I forgot most of the books events. This ended up with me hitting the point of no return (which is probably somewhere around the last fourth of the book) where I cannot put the book down until I finish it, therefore not going to bed (the night before a final) until about 2am. Although I loved the book (as always) and had an amazing time doing it, but studies suffered and realized I should have simply waited 2 weeks and read it over my Christmas break. Finally, I am promising to NOT spend so much money on pointless things. I have the ability to go a store and somehow spend over one hundred dollars on things I didn’t really need. I am hoping to limit how much I spend and also how many trips I make to the stores. That way I can save my money for the things I really want instead of always wasting it and never having the things I truly need or greatly desire. Hopefully I will be able to stick to this list and NOT do all of the above listed.
