This semester has gone a lot better than the last one. Reading Burka and Yuen's book on Procrastination (search my log) helped a bunch, but I still put several things off to the last minute.
But it's progress; and I'm proud of it. Of course, I'm saying this because if I say it enough, I'll believe it. I'm a good person, and my parents' failure is not my fault. They have their lives, and I have mine. Let's make the best of it.
Our greatest gift is adaptability. The hard part is using Reason to select certain changes over a great many others.
