It pains me to be writing this blog post, however it must be done. I like to think of myself as being successful at most things in life, however with every success there must always be failure. However, failure is not always a bad thing. In fact, failure is a very good thing and overall can be more beneficial to you in the long run than success. I think that I have properly earned my fail badge for this semester due to my main shortcoming in life, which is my procrastination. As I write this post for my blog I have come to realize that I am extremely behind on my portfolio assignments for this class. In fact, I have only done a few and there are only a couple more days left of the semester, so I am doing my best to knock out as many assignments as I possibly can today and tomorrow. I could do a lot of things like I have done in the past and blame this procrastination on the current situation that we all find ourselves in with the online schooling and the COVID-19 pandemic. Or I could blame it on the fact that I am working a full time job while also trying to start my own business for after I graduate in December. However, this time I am not going to do that. In fact the only thing that has really put me in the situation is myself and my nature to procrastinate on things and the lack of motivation that I have had. It is too late at this point to make excuses and try to justify things that I know I could have controlled. I know I had the time to work on one or two portfolio assignments a week even from home. However, for the most part I chose to f*** off and be absent minded and play Minecraft and Call of Duty: Warzone with my friends. Nevertheless, the time has come where I have to put my nose to the grindstone (or really my fingers to the keyboard) and grind out the portfolio assignments that I need to pass this class. I honestly hope anyone who is reading this is genuinely motivated by my own failures and learns from the mistakes that I have made so that you do not have to make them yourself.
