    I Hate It

    Most probably it's my catholic upbringing that makes me hate procrastination.  Alas, I'm a terrible procrastinator.  The result is that I'm the victim of deep feelings of guilt, sometimes. I don't put the blame on modern technology.  Even without it I would be a...

    I Call It Relaxing...

    But some days I do it just to avoid doing things I know I need to do or to avoid talking to people I don't want too... I waste alot of time here, but it also helps me mentally prep to do the things I am procrastinating on... Half bad and good....necessary evil I guess

    Time Filler

    I can think of lots of things besides the computer to do but I can do them later, maybe even tomorrow.  I procranstinate anyways, so the computer is an excellent way to pass the time.  My wife is even worse at it than I am.

    I procrastinate because sometimes I just want

    to be in complete control. I feel like there's nothing to worry when it's just me, my imagination, and delays. And then I have to rush to do my work. I don't know if I'll ever be able to break this habit.

    I usually procrastinate via EP, ICHC, or looking up my crush. If I have to write a paper or whatever I usually am still logged onto EP just so I can take frequent mini breaks....lol. Damn me and my self-control.....

    Don't Need Much of An Excuse

    I think besides the day I was born--since I was two months premature--I have procrastinated.  Somedays, I just need a push to get things done.  Being on the computer is as good an excuse as any.
