I’ve decided to elaborate on a large occurrence of misfortune that is sweeping the nation.
No, I am not talking about J-Bieb’s recent break up with Selena. (but I certainly wouldn’t mind being his rebound)
Ladies and gentleman, my post today is referring to the tragedy that is… PROCRASTINATION.
I doubt I am the only one that suffers from this horrid condition. However, it seems to have recently gotten worse. Perhaps this is because CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. 43 days away, to be exact.
It seems as though I’ve fallen into this “pre-holiday-merriment-funk” (Holiday-hooby-whatty?)
It’s hard to focus on school work when all I want to do is hangout with all of my celebrity friends!
For example, this is a casual picture from this weekend of me and my pal Barry Williams aka Greg Brady from The Brady Bunch. I love hanging with that guy, he is so chill. Confession: I actually just sat behind him on Fire in the Hole at Silver Dollar City and he was nice enough take a picture with us.
Now that I seamlessly slipped that in, I’ll segue back to my procrastination spiel.
I asked the internet wizard why we procrastinate and here is what he gave me:
- Organizing thoughts and actions and keeping on track with plans is difficult.
- Tasks seem overwhelming so it’s futile to even try.
- Hostile feelings towards someone cause you to want to punish them by putting things off.
- Routine and schedule causes you to feel rebellious.
- You fear disapproval.
Well, shooting the breeze with 70s celebrities doesn’t seem to be on there. Drats. But, I’m also not rebellious, hostile, or disapproval fearing. How about laziness? Yep. That’s me. For example, I am writing this post ABOUT procrastination in order to procrastinate accomplishing my homework. Luckily, I have some tips as well…
- If you’re planning on doing homework, do it at your desk! This may seem obvious, but writing a paper is way easier to accomplish when at a station specifically made for studying. Beds, however, are much less conducive workspaces.
- Make a list. another “obvi” approach. But, if you need the visual aid of the jillions of things you need to do, a list will always keep you in check. Ha. check. Get it? Like check it off your list? I’m sorry.
- REWARDS! Last week, I rewarded myself with a few cookies for every paragraph I finished on an essay. Delicious and studious.
- I’m not trying to go all “Nike” on you guys, but Just Do It! Seriously, The hardest part is starting. Once you do, it’s all downhill from there.
I am clearly not the queen of time management, but I do have to put things into perspective when it comes to homework or just getting my “bidness” done.
Do any of you have ideas for me or the other people suffering from this debilitating state of mind? Let me know!
Keep it real, Drury.
