Impulsivity has always been a very big motivator in my life. Growing up my mom was really strict and did not let me experience a lot of things a kid should be able to do, like hanging out with friends or getting a job. I did not get to make a lot of mistakes and learn from them. Now as an adult with my own money and in college, I tend to try to make up for time lost. A lot of the decisions I make are very impulsive. I tend to blow money on stupid things, I get tattoos or piercings or dye my hair the same day I have an itch for it, and I go to parties when I know I have homework due the next day. Although this can be detrimental in retrospect, I still have that responsible kid in the back of my mind so that I do not take it too far. I still have some self-control.
