I'm changing my habits!!

I hate my personal life right now. Seriously, I've been getting into many fights with my dad lately. He thinks my priorities are really messed up, because I spend so much time on the computer and with SOVA.
It's not like I haven't been trying to change though. I realize that my personal life is important too. Of course, it is! It's just that, personally, I have a lot of trouble trying to balance both my personal life and SOVA. I really need to work on my time-management skills (that's one of my main problems).
I kinda procrastinate too. In fact, I've been looking for a job for months now. I'd prefer to get one in a city that's like 10-15 minutes away from where I live. But my parents want me to get one within walking distance, or close driving distance so they won't have to spend as much money on gas. I respect their opinion and everything, but still, I really don't wanna work at a fast-food place. Ugh...
I had a job sometime last year, at Arby's. Actually, it was my first job ever, and it lasted about 6 months or so. But my experience there was horrible, and that's the reason why I don't wanna work in fast-food again.
If at all possible, I want to work in retail. But the problem is, there are few retail stores in my area. I'm not even sure if they're hiring at this time. >_< I know that many fast-food places are hiring right now, but I'm not sure if I can actually handle that. However, on the other hand, I am very desperate right now. I'll pretty much take anything, even MacDonald's. And wow, I can't believe I just said that! O_O
Anyway, aside from getting a job, my parents want me to do chores around the house and stuff. I know that doesn't sound like much. But you see, even doing chores is an issue for me. This is kind of embarrassing for me to admit, but I never had chores growing up - that's because my mom spoiled me and my siblings when we were younger. As for me, I was really spoiled, and my mom took care of a lot of things for me. And because this has been a habit of mine for so long (not doing chores), it's going to be difficult for me to break...
So yeah, I'm 21, so I have to start acting more mature now. Seriously, starting today, I need to make sure that I do chores around the house every day, and I have to learn to manage my time correctly - otherwise I know my dad will always hold this against me. Because according to him, I'm not doing what a person my age should really be doing. I'm not being productive, and instead I'm spending more time talking to my friends and working on SOVA stuff. But of course, that's only because I care so much about both my friends and about SOVA (actually, most of my friends are from SOVA, lol).
Anyway though, today I will make sure that changing my habits becomes my number 1 priority! And SOVA will definitely be knocked down a notch. It will still be important to me, of course, just not THAT much. Right now, it's really important that I focus on my personal life, by doing chores around the house, getting on a better sleep schedule, working on my time-managment skills, and finding a job.
Especially the job part, it's of upmost importance that I get a job right now - considering I've got student loans to pay off. Ouch. And yes, I realize I've been slacking off too much lately. But now I've seen the light, after talking with my mom recently. I'm gonna make sure my dad sees me take action with my habits! He really wants me getting my life back on track, and therefore, he's going to see my habits change!
I'm tired of us getting into fights, just because he doesn't believe I will change my habits (and he doesn't believe what I say, because I've procrastinated on everything I need to do). Well, that's the old me. Today, there will be a new, more improved me. And you heard me correctly. Yes, I am going to change my habits! My dad will definitely see an improvement in me, starting today!
