    Doing It Now!

    Yeap, I'm on here writing to people, now telling a story, rather than washing the dishes and sorting out dinner. Oh well, can only get into trouble.

    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. >.<

    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've started writing my 2000 word essay

    weeks ago. But I've been procrastinating. The essay is due this Thursday. I don't know how the hell I'll manage this!! I am so stressed. I hate leaving things to the last minute but I can't help it.

    I've got an exam tommorow

    but have done nothing for it yet. Waiting an hour till I even move a muscle. Procrastination is the motto if most college students like me.

    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...

    My dissertation is due in Thursday,

    I need to get it bound on Wednesday, and somehow I still feel like I have all the time in the world. Apparently four days to edit three stories and write a 2,000 word analysis isn't enough pressure for me. I hate myself sometimes. Even though I know I am running out of time. I...

    I have so many ideas,

    but no initiative. I never do anything and can never find the drive to do anything worth while. I start something and rarely ever finish. I feel stuck and don't know where to go. Some people stand at the edge of a cliff, petrified, because they don't know how to fly. Some...

    It's so crappy... I make lists of the things i

    need to do, but i never do them... I'm just so screwed in college, the tests are coming and i will probably fail them, because of all this procrastination. I need to get my **** together. If i keep going like this, things will get really bad.
