forbidden words

*grumble* I ... dammit, I hate my psych instructor.

She gave us this assignment on Monday, and I'm loathe to repeat it, but I know I feel better when I don't think about it. But it explains the weird comment in one of my monday pages. Anyway, I'm not allowed to use the words:

I should...
I ought...
I have to...
I need to...
If I don't do x, y will happen.

Yeah, it's a way to build up unreal expectations and I'm guilty as charged. But not using the words at all means that I'm failed to be motivated. They're the stick to the carrot of choice. Because if I had my way, I'd never do anything without the proper motivation. But enough of my psych class ranting, I choose to write up my damn index cards for my damn math test because I want to get a good grade!
