CARINA 360°: Procrastinating 24/7

I will be honest here, I've meant to write this blog since June-July of last year (no joke), I figured, “Now is not the time Karina.” Then I was going to write this on January first, you know resolution day. But I procrastinated on the blog on procrastinating.

Oh the irony.

But whatever, I'm a rebel - my resolution starts today Wednesday January 20th.

Not only did I inherit my mother’s hips, but also her amazing skill of doing everything last minute.

A lot of my friends say I'm making up an excuse, calling my 'illness' pure laziness.
And I'll be blunt. Yes, sometimes it is pure laziness. And then it's me procrastinating. Then again I sometimes think I do my best work under pressure. And that's 3 out of 10 times true.

Let's see:

-I waited to the last minute to read my English assignments. (We all know it’s impossible to read 10 pages in 3 minutes!)

-I put off sweeping my bedroom floor. Resulting in a nasty haven for dust and blue hair.

-I was too lazy and hit the snooze button on my alarm six times - late to school.

And many more that I just can’t remember.

Defer, postpone, put off, pause, delay, laziness, taking a rain check! They all mean the same thing. I always feel like I have something better to do! Like watch Oprah or do my nails.
I'm always telling myself I'll get it done ... “eventually!”

People who procrastinate are often associated with: Depression, Internet Addiction, Perfectionism, and workaholism. Hmm, maybe just the last three.

I believe it‘s about time for me to drag my feet onto the footsteps of a rehab clinic.

No I’m just kidding! Got you!

I do however, read these helpful little articles on how to stop procrastinating, to procrastinate later, and tips on how to quit!

I even read cute little quotes to keep me afloat. Such as:

-“You may delay, but time will not.” -Benjamin Franklin
-“Someday is not a day of the week.” -Unknown
-“Procrastination is like masturbation. At first it feels good, but in the end you're only screwing yourself.” -Unknown
-“Procrastination is the thief of time.” -Edward Young.

I'm worried that if I continue on this road to self-destruction my future will be bleak. I can’t let that happen, I must do something about it! Eventually!

I will write again to keep you updated on my mission to do things on time!

Unless I'm to lazy too ...
