Times change, people don’t

It has been so long since I have taken the time to sit down and write, for me, for anything other than school. I always say I will get back to writing regularly, but then life I guess gets in the way. I suppose I should really do a life update, where I am, what I’m doing these days, but I’m not feeling it right now. Instead I am going to ramble on about my writers block. Back about a year and a half ago I started an honors psychology research paper on autism.  Admittedly I had bitten off more than I could chew, with 13 hours of  hard classes and a topic far too broad, so I told my prof that I was withdrawing from honors credit. But I did work on it, and I worked hard, I just couldn’t narrow my scope and get it written. Now I have always managed to pull it together, even at the last possible moment, and pull off an A. So with that in mind , it was hard to back down. Fast forward to today, and I can see that not completing that project has sown the seed of doubt in my abilities to write and complete a quality paper. Ever since then I have avoided at all cost academic writing. It has cost me dropping a  few classes,, which is embarrassing. It has also made me get a lower gpa, which is going to be a problem if I can’t figure this out and pull it around soon. I hope to get into grad school one day in the next couple of years and I will need not only a stellar gpa but excellent writing skills. Can someone just slap me please? I need a shove in the right direction.
