Let’s Talk Bad Habits

We all have them.

Recently, I have tried to put considerable effort toward breaking my bad habits. They include:

  1. Scrolling social media upon first waking up. This habit seems to be quite common among my peers. Even if I don’t grab my phone the second I open my eyes, it’s no better that I grab it before my feet even touch the floor. I try to fix this by not sleeping with my phone under my pillow (another bad habit). Instead, I put my phone on my dresser across the room or on my nightstand next to my bed. As long as it’s not in the bed with me.
  2. Procrastinating. We all do it. Unfortunately, this isn’t an easy fix for me because it is present in several of my life pockets (yes, pockets). A painfully obvious example of this would be the fact that I have not written an entry for this blog since January of LAST YEAR. That’s not nearly as terrible as my journal, in which I have not written since 2012. I won’t tell you the month. Just know that it was 2012. *shakes head in shame* I will say I am a finisher. Sometimes it just takes me a minute.
  3. Subtweeting. I don’t do it nearly as much as I used to, but doing it at all is too much! I only subtweet about my boyfriend, which is even worse. Hey, first step is admitting!
  4. Bottling up my emotions and letting them explode at the most inconvenient times. Sporadic crying sessions that I can’t explain because 1) I can’t talk and cry at the same time and 2) I don’t know where to start.
  5. Not visiting my family. There really is no excuse. I was different when I was on campus. Now? I am down the street and I can’t manage at least a visit a week. Yes, studying for the CPA takes all my time. But that just means I need to MAKE time.

This list makes me happy because if I wrote it when I planned to, it would be much longer. I have implemented so many good habits, that the list above will be a breeze to tackle!
