5 Ways to Avoid Procrastination | Life with Precious

“The essay I was assigned 2 weeks ago is due in 5 days, I should really start doing some research on the topic… but I haven’t checked Instagram today. Maybe I should do that and then start in 15mins… Wait a second, I haven’t watched that new vlog on Youtube… I also have to read some blog posts so maybe I’ll do that first and then start my essay… On second thought, I’ll just do the essay on the weekend, I’ll have plenty of time then.”

Does that thought process sound familiar? Surely, we’re all at least somewhat acquainted with the phenomenon that is procrastination. Even the word sounds like you’re tying to avoid something, you know? It’s when you have work to do but instead, you’re doing irrelevant things like surfing the internet, checking social media, cleaning (believe it or not), watching movies on Netflix, etc. and then panicking when you realize it’s too late and you have no more time left to do the work you should have just done earlier.

I have a new favourite place, guys!

Yesterday, Trevor and I had what was hands down, the best pizza we’ve ever tasted. I’ve probably had pizza that tasted better, to be completely honest with you but the taste of the pizza, the atmosphere and the way it was made all contributed to what was possibly the best experience ever.

Kenora 2016

It’s been 2017 for like a billion months now so you’re probably wondering why the hell this post says 2016 but in August last year, Trevor and I went on a road trip to Kenora, Ontario for our one year anniversary and I literally just remembered that although I posted some pictures from the trip on my Instagram, I never actually posted them here on my blog. We’re going on another road trip this summer and plan to make it a yearly thing so I’d like to share last year’s trip with you guys. Better late than never!

Also, thank you so much for all the emails I’ve been getting. If you follow me on snapchat, you know I’ve been extremely sick for the past couple days and it’s been absolutely terrifying because I don’t think I’ve been this sick before. I’m talking puking, coughing blood (ok, it only happened twice but still, scary!!) and feeling so weak, I can barely move. I’m starting to get better now so I’m relieved. Anyways, I still feel weird so bear with me on this post. Continue reading

The month of February

Wow, it’s been a long time.

1 whole month, to be exact. Yikes. Honestly, I’m so sorry but this month has been extremely busy.

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who still emailed me and inquired about where I’ve been and stuff like that. You guys are one of the reasons why I love blogging so much.

I’ve been SO unbelievably busy and preoccupied for a number of reasons. Some having to do with assignments from school (this was from the beginning of February to the 17th) but mostly to do with room renovations (After the 17th, I had a week off school and that was all I did). Continue reading

For now, I’m back with another Weekend post so let’s jump right into it!

New Semester + Goals

img_0645My second semester started again yesterday and I’m currently taking 3 courses + a lab which probably doesn’t sound like a lot of work to some of you but one is intro to psych research methods, the other is a course that involves a lot of reading/writing and the lab is just more research so there’s a lot of material for me to cover.

New Year, New Shoes

Is it too late to say happy new year to all of you? If not, happy new year!!

Everyone who knows me personally knows how much I love shoes and how much I value my collection. High heels, in particular. Why? I have no clue but what’s not to love? I could write a whole post about my love for shoes, which I guess is what I’m technically doing haha.

Anyway, like I mentioned here, I got a Sears gift card for Christmas and I used it to purchase a pair of ankle boots that finally came in the mail 2 days ago, yay! I just wanna share how pretty they are with you! Continue reading
