Got a lot of energy staying optimistic!

The only way to begin a task is by actually doing it- not saying you will and then you realize the weekend has passed and haven’t done anything. There are those people who can procrastinate till the last day of the exam, but I can’t. If I have an exam, gym, a class it will clock my thoughts for hours till it is time to go to either scheduled plan.
