I think that everyone experiences the feeling that they're not pushing themselves as hard as they can in life. I'm a junior in college, and I know that I will pass my classes with decent grades by doing certaint things. I usually write excellent papers, my presentations go well, and my tests are normally around average ( I despise multiple choice!). Anyways, I feel as if I've been coasting. I've been missing classes for bad reasons ( I usually can not fall asleep till 3 am, thus I'm tired in the morning!), and my conscience won't let me feel good about it! I really want to excel when I graduate, but I feel my attitude as of late would be extremely negative to go through the rest of my college experience with. I also feel like I'm not allowing my classes to challange me intellectually, which is unfortunate because I'm taking some amazing classes. So, my questions are: Do any of you ladies have a similar situation going on ? ( the feeling is applicable to many different things!) and, if so- what's the proper thing to do about? I can either beat myself up about my behavoir lately, feel guilty, and then do better- or I can openly recognize the behavoir as harmful, but tell myself the past is the past and all I can do is learn from it? Either way I'm planning on doing a much better job! just thought I'd share.
