I could walk to the Oval. I think I might have been inside once.

Generally, I won't sit down and do what I want to do until all the unpleasant tasks have been done first.

But do you know, I am becoming more relaxed about this as I get older.

I will put myself into hardship because I am impatient, for example I had two weeks left on my tenancy agreement for a house I rented but wanted to move, and instead of waiting two weeks I moved, and paid rent at two places for two weeks.
Life would have been much easier had I just waited, but when something becomes attainable to me, and I want it. I want it NOW. I feel high levels of stress when I delay it I don't know why, I know it's stupid but I just feel that way.
That's fair enough but what if you can't control it? For example, I have tickets to an Ashes Test match in August that I'm really looking forward to but I can't make it come any quicker.

Haha it drives me crazy!! and time really drags when I am anticipating something exciting
Im a girl.
