I seemed to have noticed a trend in my blog posts today as I was scrolling through them. I post quite a bit about there not being enough time in the day to get done all that I need to get done. If only the days were longer.
The semester is winding down and I am finding myself busier than ever. Because I am such a procrastinator, I like to put everything off until the very last few days they are due. Why? Because I work better under pressure. Or that’s what I like to tell myself at least.
It is true, though. If something isn’t due right away, I am most likely not going to do it. But when it’s due tomorrow, I HAVE to do it. If I could learn to get my priorities straight, I wouldn’t need there to be more time in the day.
It’s days like these that I get the most stressed out; days when I try to cram everything I’ve been putting off into three consecutive days of non-stop work.
In fact, just before writing this blog post, I wrote a ten page paper. Most people would call me crazy, but I honestly work better when I do things in one, long sitting as opposed to doing little bits of work here and there. I will lose my train of thought and have to start all over again each time. Instead, I chose to do things in one, long stride as opposed to small baby steps. Personally, I like it that way.
Someday, I will probably have to kick this habit to the curb, but for now I am a procrastinator. There is more to come about this blog post, but I guess it can wait till tomorrow…
