I Procrastinate

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 31,747 People

    Usually from anxiety.

    Not that I was particularly actually doing what I was supposed to; but I end up going in circles and getting everything in the wrongg order. Like the only way I'll actually do something is if there's something else that I need to do first, then I can do the first thing to avoid...

    I hate that I always put all my priorities to

    the last minute, its a horrible trait which I have. And I hope I can change that one day! Hopefully I will better my life someday...! UGH!

    Here's a real story about me: I did a research

    about Procrastination and how It affects academic performance last semester as a final project. The real sad funny part that even though I chose the topic 3 months before the due date, I had done from it 5 hours before the submission date!

    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 should be reading for English class.

    Or going over math problems. Or studying biology. Or doing my assignments for my computer class. Instead I'm playing FarmVille.

    I always tend to let my phone keep me from

    doing anything. Like, taking a shower. My bed is so comfortable I just keep saying "okay five more minutes. Okay ten. I can do it in an hour. Hold on, I gotta reply to this message" Technology always gets the best of me. >.<

    So what's the use in doing anything,

    when the rules are going to change the night before the deadline anyway, no matter how many or early proposals, mock-ups and revisions you do? And no I can't really give the specifics, but it's a more general question anyway :)

    I've been wanting to bake an apple pie

    for about a year now. o_O I have found a recipe and might actually get around to it before this month is over. and I'm not going to do it all half-assedly either. I'm pretty sure baking is the only thing I really try at, maybe only because I'm going to have to eat it after.
