If it can wait................procrastinate
How often do you put off doing things? Would you consider yourself a procrastinator? Or are you someone who does things as soon as possible?

Procrastination is my middle name. :P I was up until past one o' clock last night finishing a project that was due today lol. That's how everything is with me.

I've always been really bad with procrastination. I work better under pressure so I guess I tend to leave things to the last minute to build up that pressure. That doesn't work so well anymore now that my assignments are so much longer--I can't just do them the night before so I procrastinate until there's about half a week left and then do them.

Well, usually I do but this term, health issues nonwithstanding, I've been doing a really good job of staying on top of my assignments. It's pretty nice--I wish I could manage this more often. :P

Depends on how important it is. I've toned it down a lot since I graduated, but sometimes it still shines through. For example, I need milk but it can wait.

I like to think of it as time management.

I like to get things done early. I can relax after once it's off my chest. The procrastination tends to come in when I don't start as early as I original intend. But, still early overall.

Yes I consider myself a procrastinator. I always procrastinate on everything Especially with homework and special projects. I always do them last minute but I always get a good grade. Sometimes I get really lazy to do my homework I actually do it the next day or the period before that class. I also procrastinate in doing chores especially when I'm here or at the battle server. c;

welcome to Talli's life I do this all the time especially when it comes to writing up important stuff that needs doing as quickly as possible.

Brynjolf March 15th, 2013 2:21 PM

I'm a pretty bad procrastinator if I absolutely hate something, but even if I don't like it (mild dislike) I will still do it. I have an okay work ethic.. I can do things I don't enjoy swiftly/quickly and thoroughly

Kura March 15th, 2013 2:30 PM

It depends on what it is, but usually I set my own deadlines before the actual deadlines so I'll procrastinate until those :3

How is it that Roc hasn't replied to this thread yet?!

I procrastinate a lot, but only if it isn't a lot of work. If it is, then I prefer getting it done ahead of time. Otherwise I wait too long, then suddenly I don't have enough time.

Munchlax11 March 15th, 2013 4:32 PM

I procrastinate a lot. It's awful. Nothing ever gets done until the last minute.

Alakazam17 March 15th, 2013 4:39 PM

I procrastinate so much, I consider it a serious problem of mine. For all of my elementary, high school, and freshperson years, I would always wait until the last minute possible to get anything done. In those cases it worked fairly well, so I stuck with it. But as I got higher in years, it became less and less possible. But nonetheless I still manage to do it from time to time. I had about three months to write a 12-page paper last summer, and I waited until the night before it was due. I just wrote like the wind, finally finishing with enough spare time to print it out and walk it to school. I got an A. @_@

That result confuses me to this day. And furthermore, it has done nothing to force me to cease my procrastinative ways. *sweatdrop*

Procrastination is my pseudonym for sure, regardless of importance. The only thing about importance is that if something is more important than another thing, I get the more important task completed faster, but still, not in a really prompt manner (unless I'm under supervision or are away from home :P)

Clacla March 15th, 2013 8:34 PM

I'll answer tomorrow.

I procrastinate all the time, every school assignment is done on the last day possible. I mean everything from essays, to projects, assignments, everything. It's a bad habit.

Golurks Were Meant to Fly March 15th, 2013 8:48 PM

I am definitely a procrastinator, I put off things I don't want to do constantly, so school work for instance. I let them go past the last possible second (like stay up really late to avoid doing something) but I do always get it done. Unless I forget. Which happens often because I can be very forgetful, sigh :( However, once I adopt a good habit it tends to stay... so we'll see if I can curb procrastination sometime soon :l

Crux March 16th, 2013 2:42 AM

Hahaha, honestly Slender, I was procrastinating. X)

Yeah... unless it's really important to me I tend to procrastinate with everything.
Eating? Yup. Projects? You bet ya. Going to sleep? Getting up to get a drink? Sitting down because I seriously hurt my ankle? All of the above!
However, despite how much I procrastinate with things pertaining to self care, if something is my responsibility then it's damn sure i'll take care of it.

Shining Raichu March 16th, 2013 5:08 AM

I like to let things build up and then do them all at once in a big blitz lol. Progressive work was never my thing, I like having a mountain to overcome, and then overcoming it :P

Sheep March 16th, 2013 11:44 AM

I'm a huge procrastinator who will put off doing things until the day before they're due. Bad habit of mine but when I still do well on projects and papers that I start the day before, I don't feel there's really a reason to change.

Aeon March 16th, 2013 12:22 PM

I put off everything. There is often no exception. I need to stop though, it's actually beginning to hurt me in college.

Caelus March 16th, 2013 12:43 PM

I'm pretty bad when it comes to this. Like today I wanted to play basketball at 3 but it's almost 4 and I don't feel like leaving just yet.

I also have two exams on Monday and I have yet to study for them. Considering we're taking them after our break I won't be surprised if most of my classmates didn't study either.

Shiny Celebi March 16th, 2013 5:30 PM

Whatever I dont have to do right away I tend to procrastinate a little bit.

All times are UTC -8. The time now is 10:13 AM.
