AHHHHHH procrastination, we have such a toxic relationship, so why do we keep coming back to each other? WHY???!!!
Procrastination and I are kind of like Sid and Nancy, but without all the hairspray.
The thing is, when I put things off it never turns out well. I’m not really sure why I don’t learn my lesson. I absolutely hate the feeling of scrambling at the last-minute to get things done, and each time I find myself in that position, I vow to never drag my feet ever again. It’s always the same, though, even when I tell myself that I’ll do things differently the next time.
There I am once again saying hello to my old friend, Procrastination.
I’ve noticed a trend with my procrastination, though. It goes in spurts. I will have weeks and weeks of getting all of my school work done in a timely fashion, exercising regularly, cooking very involved meals, and in general just getting lots of stuff done. Then it’s inevitable, I hit a wall, and that is exactly what happened to me this week. The past two weeks Matt and I both have had midterms, and I also had a ten page research paper for an Abnormal Psychology class due that just about killed me! On top of that, I had to submit fifteen pages for a novels class I’m in. Even though I didn’t wait until the last-minute to prepare for any of those projects, by the time it was all over, I crashed big time. This week so far has been a total bust, and I can’t really afford for it to be. I have plenty to get done by tomorrow, and I really haven’t done anything substantial yet.
I’m procrastinating even further by writing this post.
Because as you can see…
So far today…
- I’ve broken one of my pre-New Years Resolutions and already updated on Facebook twice.
- I’ve eaten an entire bag of POP chips even though I wasn’t hungry.
- I’ve talked on Skype for an average of 2 hours so far.
- I’ve researched recipes for din-din for at least an hour.
- I spent entirely way too long reading up on the latest Kim Kardashian drama.
What ever is a girl to do?!
To answer my own question…
Get it together, Palma!
Does anyone else have the same problem with procrastination? We can always form a club and make awesome excuses for each other…tomorrow. Thoughts?
Perhaps this can be our logo…
Let me know if you’re interested.
Until then, back to work.
