I'm slow, lethargic, unproductive, dirty, messy - but it's just me

I'm generally a very, very messy girl. It's really cramping on my style and how I feel about myself. I feel pretty close to the people on Hoarders when I really let myself go (which happens when my mother doesn't get on my case every week)... I just simply have no energy or motivation to cleaning my room. My poor mother has no idea why I am the way I am. I also do NOTHING over the weekend. If I'm at home for a break, I have an insanely hard time getting anything done, doing ANYTHING productive. I do EVERYTHING last minute. It's insane, stressful, horrid. I have a hard time following through on anything important, any big projects on a long-term basis. While I have some successes (doing decently at school, have cultivated some cool hobbies, have had some great experiences, have learned a lot, etc) I think I'm reaching about 30% of my potential. I have some sneaking suspicions why I'm this way, but how do I change this? [more inside]

Advice on how to not compulsively wasting time and change my life.

I may be overcomplicating this, but I feel like I need a little help. Deeply deeply lazy, unambitious, unfit and often just feel super-klutzy. All of this is getting to me. horrifically self-indulgent long post to follow, but would greatly appreciate the bluntest of advice. [more inside]

Lazy University Student? Guilty As Charged. How can I change? And is this normal?

I'm an intelligent 20 year old University student with good-ish grades and overall, I get all the important stuff done. However, I have such frequent periods of lazy and unmotivated lack of productivity that I feel tremendous guilt for on a daily basis--Should I feel guilty? Is this common / normal? [more inside]

Unable to connect with anyone

I have a problem that has been stuck with me for as long as I can remember. I can't connect personally with anyone I meet at all -- I don't think it's a matter of bad social skills, but more of a matter of not really having any common interests...but I'm not sure about that either, which is why I'm here.

How can I make myself do stuff?

I can't make myself do anything. I've never been able to. I want to accomplish so much, I have goals, but for some reason, I just can't make myself do all the things I know I'm capable of. How can I turn this around? Is there a name for it? What should I do? [more inside]
