What is holding you back, and what are you looking forward to?

Life has a lot of struggles, and a lot of joy, and usually we have a little bit of both at the same time- it is natural. So what is holding you back at this moment of life, and what are you looking forward to in your imminent future? For me, I have had a rough week, but I also have a lot of things to look forward to this month. I will start off with the bad... Today my car broke down, it is sitting in a parking lot at my college (I am a commuter student) so I have to figure out a cheap way to get it home and fix it. I have a car insurance bill (3 month cumulative) of $330, next semesters books will be around $400, and my tuition for the coming semester is $778. I work a minimum wage job part-time, so it is hard to pay for this stuff, especially when Christmas is coming. I only have about $100 for everything right now. Though on the positive side, $778 is not bad for tuition when it is $30,000 - I got a lot of aid from scholarships and grants. My boyfriend will be here the 12th, I have not seen him since January 4th of this year since he lives in Sweden. We will be in the Bahamas over New Years- I might not be able to spend much there, but at least I will be there. I know I will get through the negatives, and the positives outweigh the negatives in my life, so I will be ok. How about you, what are you negatives and positives in life? Feel free to rant!

I keep putting off things for no apparent reason. I am glad you asked this question. Since yesterday I have started going against my habit of procrastinating and I am getting things done and I am feeling mighty good about it. I have lost many an opportunity because of this weakness of mine. But I have decided to fight it out - better late than never!!!

The things that are holding me back are fear, anxiety, procrastination, bad weather and sleepiness. But I am happy because I am looking forwarnd to buying new having, a new acoustice guitar pick up, having a les paul electric guitar, having a new PC, finish my thesis and graduate, have a good LCD monitor, have an airbrush, have a part time job as a voice talent,read the whole Bible, have a new printer and a scanner. Those are the things that I am looking forward to.
