i'm a procrastinator.

have been my whole life.


case in point, it's 11:22pm monday night as i'm typing this, and lord knows i should be sleeping right now, but of course i wait till the absolute last moment possible to start writing this blog.


right as my eyes are beginning to get heavy, my creativity is at its lowest point and the
likelihood of spelling errors is high.

why couldn't i have started writing something at 9pm instead of piddling around on the internet for hours prior to getting down to the blog writing business?


because i procrastinate.


case in point 2.0, i've known forever that i was flying to LA the first weekend in june for my friend tigger's wedding, yet i wait till about a month before the flight instead of just buying my ticket with the rest of my friends months ago to save money.


but that would be too smart of me.


my first memory of procrastination for me was in the 3rd grade. i was writing my first "paper" on walt disney and ended up staying up way past my bedtime essentially forcing my mom to write it for me because i has put everything off for so long.

kinda like i'm doing now...

.................................................................................

ok, full disclosure here: right after i typed "kinda like i'm doing now..." i went to bed thinking to myself, i'll just finish it in the morning before i go to the gym.

more procrastination.

so my alarm(s) goes off this morning, and i wake up to finish writing whatever is left of this now lame blog post... but not after i hit snooze 385 times.

more procrastination.

what. the. hell.

hey, if it wasn't for the last minute nothing would ever get done.

right? RIGHT?

  1. Procrastinators unite -- tomorrow!

    I am a horrible procrastinator as well. In college when I had huge papers to write I would wait until the last week, then down the No-Doze with pots of coffee so I could stay away for days at a time.

    I still procrastinate to a degree, its just who I am and I've learned to accept that about myself. =) I'm more productive and creative when I take it down to the wire. One of my favorite quotes is "Why do today, what you can put off until tomorrow."

  2. The first time I remember procrastinating to a fault was 6th grade, when I had to put together a poetry anthology. I made my mom stay up with me until 4:00 in the morning putting it together, and then I had to get up at 6:00 to get ready for school. NOT a happy camper.

    Also, sadly, didn't learn my lesson.

  5. I've been procrastinating since I was in the womb. Yup, I'm that lazy.

    Besides, I work better under pressure.

  7. I feel your pain. Basically I've gotten to the point now where I rate things by my level of excitement. If I am really excited about something, I know I'll get it done. If I am very iffy about it, I just say no in the first place--otherwise I will be that girl, procrastinating till the final hour.

  11. Normally I'm not a procrastinator but lately I've been doing it a lot more with non-work things. It's like I think I'll get to it later and then don't. Oops.
