Procrastination is a curse

Blogged by: Kitty on Monday, August 29, 2011   Facebook comments: comments

As mentioned in the previous post, I'm currently working on a project which involves a new website. It is actually a project I started a few years back but I never got around to finishing it and I eventually abandoned it in my pursue of other things. But now I decided to bring it up again and continue working on it. I'm hoping to finish it by October.

I also mentioned in one of tweets about my plan to interview a blogger. I have not decided on how I would do it, nor who I'd pick to interview. It's still in the planning stage, I'm not even sure if I would do this eventually.

I also need to update Kitty-Kat.org and Amalina.org. I've neglected them for quite a long time now, especially Kitty-Kat.org. I haven't blogged on that site for 2 months. o_O I seriously has nothing to blog there. Oh woe me!
And I need to integrate HTML editor into Amalina.org so that managing the content would be so much easier1.

And oh, there's also the blog shop template that I need to work on. Oh dear, why do I have so much work to do?

Two words, I procrastinate. Yes, that's right. The bane to success and a curse to motivation. Putting things off until the last minute is a habit hard to remove and we're all guilty of it at some point. Now why do I like to delay things? Why won't I do the things that I should be doing the moment I get them? And when I arrive at the end of the road, I would start panicking and blaming myself. I would promise myself not to do it again and yet, when the opportunity comes, I would start the cycle over again. I think it has to do with laziness. I am lazy and should be spanked for it.

Krystal's jewellery store is finally having a promotion for her Autumn Fall piece! I love all her designs. Previously I bought these two from her store:

necklace1

The first piece I bought, the Snow Drift necklace.


necklace2

Light rose with green Peridot leaf (Spring)


I really want to have the awesome Autumn Fall piece but I really need to save up for the December trip. Ugh.

The designer

Kitty

Kitty. 29. Blogger, web design hobbyist, compulsive shopper and bibliophile based in Brunei. Enjoys creating and designing websites, dabbling with HTML, CSS and PHP.

I've been blogging since 2005 (or earlier) though my experience with the internet started back in 2000. My main interest is in web design and development. Other times you can see me wrapped around a book or glued to Astronomy and web design magazines.

The website

This website was created in January 2011 and the domain was purchased by me in late December 2010. Initially the website was intended to house tutorials for Classic Blogger/Blogspot only however over the time it has developed into what you see today.

Several of the tutorials and articles can also be found on Nekonette.com, which is the my main website where I mostly blog about my personal life. Also some of the tutorials here have been moved to that website.
