    I have a Jedi mastery skill level at

    procrastination. I once procrastinated so hard I forgot what I was procrastinating about.

    I am ridiculously bad at getting work done

    before the night before (if that makes any sort of sense?). It's terrible really, I can't revise for exams, I never spend time on homework, I just can't concentrate unless I'm under a lot of pressure- and even then it sometimes gets the better of me and just stresses me out...

    I watched like two movies,

    ate like 3 rice puddings and about to bake some cookies. If procrastination was job, I would do the damn thang 💯

    I'm Only Writing This Because I'm Putting Off Doing Important Stuff

    What causes procrastination? I think it is fear.  Fear that I won't be able to complete the task - or do it well enough.  Fear that it may involve me getting my hands dirty or have repercussions. Fear that it may attract criticism.  Fear that it may turn...

    Alright, it's 12 AM and I have a research paper

    rough draft (complete with note cards and highlighted printouts) due tomorrow. I'll be staying up late to get it done, even though I gotta wake up at 6 AM. Procrastinating is terrible and I really ought to break the habit, 'cause it's definitely not worth the pain and stress...

    Time Optimist

    Someone described me as a time optimist. I don't just put things off till the last minute - when the last minute arrives I try to fit in a few other things too - and inevitably end up late! Anyway sounds more positive than "procrastinator" and has an inbuilt excuse!

    I wish I wasn't such a procrastinator,

    but I tend to avoid doing the unpleasant things and do what I'd rather do. However to keep from making myself sound like I focus on the negative because I don't, I will add that there's a lot positive changes that I've been making in the last year or two so I have faith that I...

    I've been using a book called "The Now Habit"

    which has in it a systematic programme for beating procrastination, and when I first mentioned it I said I'd keep interested people posted on how it's going. Well, I've worked through a number of stages of the programme now, and it's continuing to impress me. One of the latest...

    We had two months to do it, and I started it 3 days before it was due. I got a C- on it.

    I feel as though this year was difficult

    for me academically. Not just because I procrastinated, but because I was so depressed that I couldn't motivate myself to want to do my work. I feel like that was worse than simply being too lazy to do your work. I was so disappointed in myself but that only made my depression...

    Currently taking the two hardest available

    classes in my major along with two of moderate difficulty. They say I can't procrastinate and pass. I shall prove them wrong. I shalt get a 3.0 with flying, mediocre colors.

    There are things that urgently need to be done,

    and I'm running out of time. So much pressure, I end up leaving things to the last minute. Felt like I wasted another day and precious time.
