Thinking About…Procrastinating

Sometimes I feel like the biggest procrastinator in the world! Even while writing this I want to stop and do the post later. Keep thinking of other things I want to talk about. It’s funny though I do tend to get behind in writing my reviews but I don’t always write a post the night before since our blog schedule is made in advance (Alexa is definitely not a procrastinator 🙂 ). I am actually writing this a week in advance. I find myself not really procrastinating with posts but school is definitely another story!

I rarely if ever get any of my assignments done in advance. I always say I am going to get ahead but then it never happens. I occasional get ahead with my readings but not homework. When I try to look ahead I start to panic about all the things I need to do and feel like I will never get it all complete. I worry and worry and then nothing get accomplished so then I just want to takes things a day at a time. The problem with that though is that once a due date does roll around a start to stress out anyways. I know too much stress isn’t healthy but when I am stressed that is when I seem to get things accomplished. When I know something is due the next day I know I have to stop making excuses and just do it. Lots of complaining, frustration, and crying occurs first but then things start to flow and I get it done.

Don’t get me wrong I don’t go into a paper or assignment the night before not knowing anything about it. I have already gone over the instructions, know what I want to write about, and if it requires research have done it but in the four years I have been in college I don’t think I have never not written a paper the night before. I know it is a bad habit but i still give it my all and put hours into it just instead of over a couple days its done all in one. I do I have paper due soon that I am hoping to work on soon. Going to try and break this tradition. We will see what happens 😉

I wish I could get things done earlier but there are always so many things to do everyday. Currently I have school, the blog, workstudy, helping run a club on campus, planning my sister baby shower, and then me time (to read, watch tv/movies, eat, go to the gym, take care of myself, even to sit and do nothing for a bit). I love it all. I really do love being busy it just means having to fit more things into the same amount of time I did less things before so sometimes things get put off and I procrastinate. Does it still count as procrastination if I am working on something else? Like reading perhaps? lol

Life is busy for many. I myself just need to take it one thing at a time and try to remember to breathe. Procrastination keeps me sane (as sane as I can get) for a bit. How do you manage your busy schedule? Are you a procrastinator like me or do you like to get things done in advance? I’d love to know 🙂

    I am a massive procrastinator. I am procrastinating this very second! I have exams coming up and essays due in soon, but haven’t started doing any of it yet, so I know how you feel. I wish I could get things done earlier too, but I have a tendency to get distracted by things that are less important and then end up not doing what I intended to at all! Great post, thanks :).

    LOL. I feel better after reading your post. I’m a big time procrastinator. The deadlines are what get me up and working. I can’t seem to focus beforehand, it sort of saves time :-p

    There are too many things to juggle and I do manage all of them but yes. it does get a bit stressful at times.
