Journal Entry 3

When I first started homeschooling, I quickly learned that I had a problem: procrastination. At the private school, I had previously attended, every day there would be reminders of what was due and instant consequences if something was late.

However, with homeschooling, that was not exactly the case. I had to remind myself of what was due. And since I did not have classes every day, it was easy to slip into the habitual thinking of, ‘oh, I’ll do it tomorrow. My class is still a few days away. I’ll have time.’

Of course, my procrastination meant that I usually ended up cramming the day before because I had not spent my time wisely. This was beginning to cause me stress and minutes-before-due panic.

In Proverbs 6:7-8, the ant is referenced, saying, “Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.” This, I believe, is saying that we need to prepare for something ahead of time. Or in other words, not procrastinate.


  1. Ah, yes. Procrastination. The temptation that avails all homeschoolers. I totally get this feeling. 🙂
