Oh college, I've had a ridiculous amount of fun already and I'm only three weeks in.  Right now I'm procrastinating doing my homework that's due early in the morning by sitting in my hall's lobby soaking up the awesome.


I've been a slacker lately I've been WAY too busy with school stuff lately to write much other than school related things, which sucks a little but is also a major part of being an English major and a freshman. I have a stack of books that I want to read too and topics that I want to write but I never really make time for any of them and it's kind of disappointing me. Don't get me wrong I love everything that I am doing but I just need to force myself to slow the ef down sometimes and breathe for a moment. Thankfully this weekend has provided that chance for me, my cousin is getting married and my aunt and I are going to go see my little brother and her brother before the nuptials. My aunt and I are finally going to get the chance to hang out and see a lot of family members that we don't see that much, plus we get to drink! Last weekend my boyfriend got to get drunk (he's also a no00b to booze) so this weekend is my turn and I'm kind of excited.  But this post is definitely not about drinking.  I just thought I would update everyone on everything, I really do have plans for better posts in the future I just have to write a huge essay and take a bunch of tests this month but I'll at least work on them. Procrastination is my greatest skill at times it seems..


How do you prevent major procrastination?


  1. I prevent procrastination by rewarding myself. If I do something unpleasant first, then I can do something fun. Because I'm a child.

  2. Haha Andrew I do that too, at least I try to. Sometimes it doesn't work out in my favor or I get distracted but I'm working on it.

  3. It's such a good idea to take some time off :) I procrastinate so much if I haven't actually given myself a break to just forget about all the things I need to do! Me and Joel do the 'I'll drink this night and you drive, then vice versa' thing too. it works well!

  4. What books are in your stack that you are trying to find time for? I am trying to finish Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karanina by this week end. But for my side reading during college I read religious texts of all the major religions. It really gave me a wide range of ideals and ethics from a world view.

  5. Hey Tim! I don't have too much but my roommate has lent me a novel or two and there's other's that I've seen that I want to look into getting but books aren't cheap and I am so I'm thinking a trip to Goodwill for books is in order.

  6. I'm such a procrastinator too. I just always think I have more time than I really do. It's so bad. I like to tell myself that if I don't do what needs to be done, I won't have time to go with friends and have fun. But that doesn't always work. I think if you found the cure for procrastination, you'd make millions!


Thank you for leaving me an assorted thought of your own. :)
