Holy moly, sorry guys for the late post. This week has been crazy! It’s like everyone is just realizing that the holidays are over and it’s time to get back to work. As I mentioned, I just (literally 5 minutes ago) sent off the bulk of my grad school applications. Now I’m terrified that in a few months I’m going to be back with my tail between my legs because I’ve been rejected everywhere; but that’s a post for another day. Hopefully not. What I really wanted to talk about today was procrastination. I do it, you’ve done it, in fact, I’d even go so far as to say you haven’t really lived until you’re up at 4 am with, basically an iced coffee IV, cramming for a final that you started studying for at 9pm. And then you sleep for 2 hours, are too nervous to eat, and your stomach growls SO LOUDLY for the entire exam that you literally just want the stupid desk that you’re sitting in to grow teeth and just eat you whole. But again, that’s a post for another day. I thought for now I would show you guys some of the important things that have prevented me from completing these applications at any point before the actual due date.
First of all, the boring, obvious things: Going to work, running errands, going to the gym, facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest…
But also, these things that I hope you’ll enjoy too- just not so much that you don’t get important things done too, ok?:
I now dream of, hopefully, being able to contribute to this website some day. Seriously (fingers crossed).
Lori, this one is for you, but also for everyone.
